I have had Fibromyalgia for 31 years, now all of a sudden everything is falling apart, 3 months ago I was in the hospital for awhile with Blood Clots going in my heart. Still on blood thinners, had a problem with my heart, and then last week I fell ( don't let anyone tell you that fat bounces,it doesn't). I messed up my wrist, arm, knee and back. My Doctor is now telling me to get a cane or a walker! What I'm only 58! Does this sound right to you or am I nuts? Please someone talk to me. And why is everything begin stupid now with me. Thank you so very much. Debbie

Debbie, in the next few days I will be starting a regimen that is supposedly going to change things for the better for me. My doctor has told me about something called a Meyer's Cocktail. My doc has been using this on his fibro patients for years with very good results. The cocktail is nothing more than vitamins, minerals and magnesium apparently it can really help.

The cocktail is given by infusion (IV) which my doctor told me will take about two hours. I'm to get it every week for four weeks. He said it's best to take a minimum of four infusions to find out if it's going to work for you. He said it has helped every one of his patients who have taken it. If you Google Meyer's Cocktail you'll find plenty of info. The biggest compaint of the Meyer's Cocktail that I've come across is that people will get a great energy boost but it will only last for 2 - 3 hours. My doctor said that why it's best to start with a minimum of four infusions.

Hope this helps. Keep your fingers crossed for me and I'll let you know how I do.

Good luck and keep your head up.
