    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    The Fatigue and Fibromyalgia Solution by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum

    This book, written by Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, might be helpful to everyone. He "suffered" from fibromyalgia himself and when he was in medical school had to drop out for a year to recover. The disease left him homeless and sleeping on a park bench.
    The good news is, "In spite of whatever doctors may have said in the past, the disease is real and you are not crazy", Dr. T. says.
    He now devotes his life to research, finding treatments and helping others with these illnesses. He also says, "If you go to an infectious disease Dr., you will have chronic fatigue syndrome and if you go out of their offices to see the rheumatologist next door, you will have fibromyalgia.
    I read all the above in newspaper article. It is available online at Amazon and from Barnes and Noble and is inexpensive. I am waiting for it's arrival soon!!
