Hi Dorothee - sorry you have the dreaded fibro and the added nasties of glaucoma and cramps. This is a great place to get encouragement and advice. Hope you are feeling a bit better today and that you have a great Xmas and a healthier new year. Helen X


Hi Slomotion Thanks for your reply and wish you a a very merry Christmas and best health as can be for the new year. And happy of course.


Hiya, I trust you know that you can get free eye tests if you have glaucoma. I get cramp in my feet to, it hurts so much. I don't think you can do a lot about it. Take care xx


yes I have just found out to take omega3 and eat nuts dark green leafy vegetables eggs avocados. That is vitamin E. Next Vitamin C 500-400 mg.Found naturally in. Then Gamolic acid 320 mg. daily. Found in Omega 3 + promoted. Now I have only received and do not understand it all yet. It was sent to me by rheumatologist and then I get completely lost next underlined Maxepda 10000 5 capsules 2 times twice each day. Now then you thought I finished but then it says 4000mg per days 4 capsules a day. I think that that I will rattle at the end of day. Please NOTE LAST 2 MENTIONED AVAILABLE ON ON PRESCRITION other one over counter. I hope this will help all though I do not as yet.

Hello Dorothee and welcome to our friendly fibro forum where you will find help, advice, support and comfort.

Have you seen our Mother Site fmauk.org ? Here you will find a wealth of information including guides and links.

If you look to the right under Pinned Posts you will find help with navigating the site and also instructions on how to lock your posts, which we recommend for your internet security.

I am sorry you have just learned of your diagnosis of fibro and guess you are coming to terms with all the symptoms. I suggest you find out as much as you can about fibro because it seems no too people present with the same problems and consequently treatment differs from person to person.

If you Google Spoon Theory it gives helpful instructions on pacing and getting most out of your day.

I'm glad you have joined us and hope to see you around the forum.
