    Sharing Fibro info I found!
    Deansmimi posted:
    Hi All & Happy New Year! I found a couple of very interesting sites,
    that I think will be interesting for you to check out. One is :
    and I wonder if anyone has heard about "Familial Mediterranean fever"
    I found this by chance while looking up a medication for my mailman's
    Mother. He said she has been on "Colcrys"-generic is "colchicine', and he said she is improving on it with her pain from fibro. I have to see him Tuesday to tell him that he must have missunderstood her
    diagnosis. She must have "FMF." I researched, and the only way you
    will improve your sympttoms, is if you actually have gout or FMF. I
    also read reviews, and ffound people with all my own symptoms asked
    her Dr. if a 30 day supply of the medicine would hurt her if she didn.t
    have it, and he said. "No". She took it and her symptoms improved.
    She had been diagnosed with fibro, but has the Familial Mediterranean Fever. It is from past generations of ancestors in the
    family. Either google the medication or the FMFto check it out. The only test you can have is a dna test, and it was said that it may not shoe if it's from too far back. I'm going to ask my Dr. to try me on a 30 day supply. The review said that the woman tried 3 different Dr.'s before success. is also very exciting.

    God Bless All, and Happy New Year

    On you'll find that this therapy is a no drug therapy, that has been successful at
    many fibro patients going into remission. Reads the reviews, they are something else!

    God Bless!
