I have Fibro.I have learned that Vitamin D(esp. Vitamin D3) is essential to take when there is an autoimmune disease diagnosed.Magnesium in pure form is a muscle relaxer.Of course Vitamin C is good for most everything.Remember that it does not build up in our body.What our body doesn't use goes out with the urine so massive amounts is not the thing to do unless you have a cold or flu the 1000mgs is good for a couple months.Then go back to a lesser amount daily.Cymbalta and Lyrica has been the best for me as far as prescriptions go.When I first got Fibro I slept all the time but decided after many years that I wasn't living and this seemingly death sentence was not for me,I refuse to just lay here in pain.Cymbalta got me out of the depression which I did not realize I was so far into and got me up.I got off all the drugs I was given that made me sleep.Sorry Doc.Hold your head up and refuse the pain.You will find more info as you go.I won't say,"Good luck".I think luck is dead.But I will say this,"CHARGE! DIG YOUR NAILS IN!" BIG HUG!View Thread
I did the research on Fibromyalgia after diagnosis.Got sick and tired of sleeping all the time.Got CYmbalta and Vitamin D,Magnesium(pure form,a powder you make a tea with).Other info and adjustments as I went along and have worked 50-60 hours a week this year(2010) that is.Of ocurse that is not recommended for anyone.My circumstances and determination pushed me into that.Now I have decreased my hours.You can overcome Fibromyalgia at least for a period of time.I had it BAD in the beginning.Slept 18 hours a day for two years before I got the determination to beat it.View Thread
