I agree with everyone about the pain and depression. I have found that taking malic acid with magnesium helps. I am diabetic, so I won't try any of the meds like Lyrica because I can't afford the side effects. I do take neuronten for neuropathy, effexor xr for anxiety attacks, so maybe taking the malic acid with those and ibuprofen is what is helping my pain. I do have flares when the weather and seasons change, but I am mostly functioning on most days. I have also found a
massage therapist that is specifically trained for fibro and she does
wonders for my pain. My husband and I also purchased a Sleep Number bed and it helps greatly also. I was diagnosed with fibro in 1997.
