    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    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.

    I have tried all meds and each one had severe side effects they tell you on T.V. what side affects they are so why try them. I use herbs and just plain mineral water like Pelligrino I drink a glass in the a.m.and one in the p.m. so far I have slept through the night and sure I still have the burny symptoms but they are toleratable. I do 5HTP @ SSt John's wort together and eat half banana before bedtime,the nother half in a.m. I have had this fibro since the 90's and it does get worse as I have gotten older so the walking and other light exercising is very important. Hope this helps fitzgift

    This is for everyone who has not yet found a decent "solution" to Fibro. I beg you to at least try LDN -- Low Dose Naltrexone. Research it, either find a Dr. who knows of it or order it from Canada, yourself. We do not have to suffer so much! It has a 50 % chance of helping, both adults and children. It has been a miracle for me for 9 months, now!! Cheap, no side effects, easy, etc. Please!---
