Just a bit fun :)Quiz: How Much Do You Know About Alternative Fibromyalgia Treatments?


Well this is an interesting little quiz this time as it explores alternative therapies and their uses towards helping to fight the fibro monsters. It's a toughie :o but well worth having a go as it's quite educational too :)

I scored 83% 10/12 which I'm impressed at as a couple of them I found quite tough!!

If you click this link it will take you to the complementary therapy factsheet from the FibroAction website which is a pdf in printable format :)


Of course none of this should override the advice of your GP and if thinking about alternative therapies it is essential to speak to your GP first. I am also not a medical professional just sharing some info with my fibro friends :)

Healing fluffies filled with sunshine to you all :) xxxsianxxx :)

I got 83% but must admit 2 or 3 were guess work, so a fluke that I got so many right sue :)

Hi sue i guessed a few too :) xx

Oooeerr I got the lot right but very much guess work methinks, nearly put St. John's wort , but then rethought a document I'd read about SaMe and it's efficacy :o should add it must be cleared with your doctor if you are on anti-depressants of any kind.

Foggy x

I guessed that one and got it right how pleased was I? LOL

:p xx

hi haribo, great to hear you're feeling so good! :) lol,just do a few fluffies at a time xx :)

I have Reiki/Massage and swallow Omega Fish Oil Capsules and St Johns Wort..I no longer use pharmaceuticals, still have pain but my "COMMANDO" Head deals with that!!"

Wow! I'm impressed and glad it works for you :)

I've never tried Reiki before is it difficult? My Mum in Law does it for stress.

Reiki is simple, google it!! it uses the goodness of the earth. a good reiki practitioner will use both Reiki and Massage. Luckily for me my lady is a Reiki Master and Holistic Healer. So its all good. Find a REPUTABLE PRACTITIONER in your area, honestly well worth it!!

I shall speak to GP and hydro/physiotherapist first but sounds interesting. I just have never asked anyone before what it was like who has tried it......... including mum-in-law!!

Hi everyone just got home after a long journey up the M6. I am a firm believer in Reiki I have found it very useful and relaxing just what we need. The first couple of times it reduced me to tears but then it was marvelous. xgins

Desperation Pain and the whole Pharmaceutical Industry became a major issue. 1morning i woke up and looked in the mirror I was yellow(not Jaundice) but the effects of 80mg of morphine a day and then the Devil Drug Duloxetine60mg. I decided there and then, the medics did not care whether I lived or Died. Changed Doctors and was fortunate to find one who could see I wanted change.I am here happy content but know i will never be "PainFree"
