Hi my name is Sarah I'm a nurse (13 yrs & counting) diagnosed with fibromyalgia 5yrs ago along with joint hypermobility (overextending joints). I just wanted to share a few things I feel that have helped me. 1. Try CHERRY ACTIVE (juice/capsules) from Amazon I've tried optimal and pure nature high strength these give a better quality of sleep than just with amitriptyline alone (athletes use these for muscle recovery). Also I've found that a CLEAN diet helps ibs symptoms (mine almost none existent). Whilst I've been on an even keel for 4 years unfortunately I've begun with insomnia recently,dramatic increase in pain and very low moods. After lots of research I've found that diet/allergies/inflammatory responses and pain can help fibromyalgia pts by improved diet esp wheat/gluten. Unfortunately I also find GPS unhelpful at times and put things off as much as possible. Hope these help!
