Try D Ribose.(Ribose) I had lack of energy and fibro fog until I saw a web-site where DR OZ recommended D Ribose (Ribose). I tried it over a year ago, use the powder daily in a ice tea or juice and I feel like a new person. More energy and no fibro fog. It is a supplement that can be found in most health food stores or online web sites. (I use Swanson on line) It is just about tasteless and mixes easily. It also is available in capsule form) To read more on the D Ribose (Ribose) type D Ribose DR OZ into your search engine and numerous articles can be found where DR OZ has talked about D Ribose (Ribose) on GMA, Oprah. Etc.

Hello Dorie.....MiMi in NC....I also take the ribose....but have not found the energy effect that you have.....perhaps it is the company that I selected......I think I will try the Swanson.....and just daughter happened to tell me that she has been taking junk new prescription and took to Walmart to have filled.....with generic and could not believe the just a couple of was by another manufacturer....perhaps it is just her body chemistry or make up....but she said she would not be getting any more of her medicines filled at a well known pharmacy....

So....if anyone has had problems with medicines....perhaps you need to try another place to get them filled....everyone is still learning all sorts of seems like it is a never ending story....

Thanks for sharing this with the FMily.....

I am glad that the Ribose is helping you....

Take care....

Dorie09 replied to Dollbug's response:
Hi MiMi, do you use the powder or the capsules? I find much better results using the powder mixed in juice or ice tea. I seem to have more energy when I use the powder.
Dollbug replied to Dorie09's response:
Hello Dorie.....I use the powder also....but perhaps I did not use enough or something else....I do not know....I have had the chronic fatigue for a very long time.....and can not seem to find anything that really helps it....

I have learned how to "control my FM pain" by taking vitamins and supplements.....but the fatigue is actually worse than my pain....

Take care and thanks again for sharing...
