Hi, I am new to this community and looking forward to understanding my fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed a year ago and do not have insurance now to continue my care. I would like to know what works for other people in the same condition. I hardly sleep lately and ache all over. I have IBS as well and RLS. Can anyone suggest anything please?

There is a website to find a fm doctor in your area. It is
fmscommunity.org/findingadoctor.htm. or call an arthritis dr and see if they have a fm specialist and get on some meds. It hasn't made my go away, but I believe the meds have made the fm more bearable. I have an active life with grandkids and all. Exercise does help. Hope this helps a little. God bless.

Find a doctor who believes in Fibromyalgia and will listen to you. It's not as easy as it sound, but don't accept anything less. I'm on neurotin (works on nerve endings), I'm on 1200 mg a day, and it seems to work for now. I have migraines and thyroid problems too. Fiorcet for migraines and synthroid for the hypothyroidism. Prayers to you and your treatments. Ask about a hormone connection and perhaps be tested. Another discussion on here on hormones and fibro is a site to be associated with. Dr. P on this site has fibro and sheds alot of light on this disease. Hang in there.
