Hi Fibro sufferers,
I just read all your messages, it seems we are all in the same boat. Unbelievable isn't it that despite our tremendous pain and struggling with our daily task, unlike cancer or stroke, the health care professional sometimes have not got the understanding of our state of life, I find some time that our condition is significantly effected our Quality of Life? I am so pleased that majority of your condition can be managed by the drugs, unlike me, I have been given every thing from Tramadol, Topiramate, morphine on highest doses, but after so many years your body got immune with it and that just not helping, but I read on some website where they said that Fibromyalgya can be treated..., some of it by changing your life style (diet, exercise, taking mineral supplement) and a friend of mine who use to suffer badly advised me what she is taking , such as: ginger tablet; selenium, magnesium spray and vit D.., I talked to my gp about it.., but obviously he has no knowledge on those, but said to me: if that is helpful..take it..because it is a nature products they will not have side effect. I am now a housebound, but after taking all the supplements, I feel that my pain have reduce, I am coping a bit better, I can walk slowly, I have a better energy.., the sad thing is that NHS will not reimburse what I bought and they are quite pricy.
Have anyone try acupuncture at all, if you are, does it help?
