Hi everyone! I am sorry that you are all here suffering with me! I just wanted to add my two cents in on what helped with my pain. My step dad found this lotion called Two Old Goats that says it is designed for those with FM so he bought a small bottle for me. ITS AWESOME!!! I just put about a pea sized amount on my fingers and spread it over my neck and shoulders (the worse spots) and about 15 mins later my muscles do not hurt as much. I want to emphasize that it does not completely remove the pain, but it does lessen it a great deal, especially during flare ups. It smells great and one of its natural ingredients helps my nerves calm down so my muscles can relax and not feel so bad. They do have a website selling this lotion but it can get a little pricey the bigger bottle you get. I would only get the "trial size" first as the lotion spreads really well and you can see if it will work for you. My step dad found the lotion in a wood working parts store (as it says it is also good for arthritis), so y'all could check there. Good luck everyone and I hope you all have a pain free day!!View Thread
