Hi everyone I have had this horrible syndrome (as they say) since 1996 . The Dr. tried all meds on me from depression meds to seizure meds . Most of them I had side effects that where worse then the syndrome? I studied alternative meds for over 40 yrs.
What helps me is Olive Leaf it is a herb, Boswellia ,acts like a cox 2 herb,hawthorne berry for circulation and a new homeopathic med you can get at CVS pharmacy it is Fibromyalgia relief I stay with these meds and can handle the lesser pain I have with Motrin or Tylenol I was on Tramadol also in the beginning but even though I am a nurse I am not one to take traditional medicines .

I am 68 now and feel fine I have been in hospital only 2 for pregency and I did have a by- pas due to cholesterol. If any of this helps you I will behappy that I shared this remedy that works for me.

Hello Fitzgift....and welcome.....MiMi in NC....I am glad that you have found something that helps you cope better...with the wrath of the dragon....I, too, did not have good luck with medicines....and I have learned how to "control my FM pain" by taking vitamins and supplements....and I know that these do help me.....but I am not painfree....I take magnesium and malate combination supplement, Omegas, Vitamin D, Super B Complex. and Calcium...plus others are I have other health issues....I can not say that I feel fine though....and have not feel really good in several years...

I have to pace with everything that I try to do....and sometimes....I cross the line and pay for what I did...

We have several nurses on board here also....perhaps some of them will also post to you....

I do hope that you will read the info under "tips" and "resources" which you can find to the right of this page....you might find some things that perhaps you have not tried...be sure and read "member toolbox" and "nutrition and vitamins".

Take care and good luck...


MiMi
IN GOD WE TRUST....MAY GOD BLESS AND GUIDE AMERICA.... My personal exchanges are Vitamin D and Pain and Wrath of the Dragon....if you care to visit..
