My tips for coping with Fibromyalgia
tapper11 posted:
Get 10 hours of sleep per night (sometimes impossible)
Eat healthy, well-balanced diet, low in fat and sugar
Two warm showers per day
Monthly massage
Aquatherapy exercise in pool between 92 and 94 degrees temp
Exercise by walking as much as possible

I try to do each of these things as often as possible. I have trouble getting everything done while traveling, but the depression lessens while on the road, and this gives me an added boost. However, too many nights with less than 10 hours sleep makes the fibro much worse. My legs give out on me and the pain increases. Hope this is helpful to some of you. Also, I take only Tylenol for Arthritus or aspirin for pain. I have tried other meds with no success.
