I wrote a few wekks ago about being in need of support and wanted to say thanks to all of youwho took the time to write back. The warmer weather is helping. I also am completing a study on light and sound therapy where I had a little walkman type box to listen to sound frequencies while viewing a light show inside of sunglasses. I am hopeful that soon this will available as a treatment option as it decreased my pain and helped my sleep. Keep your spirits up!View Thread
I am a 47yo lady who has basically been surviving on my wits and instincts for the past 6 years since diagnosis. I really need to know what others are doing to help keep fibro at bay or at least get tips on how are you able to function. I am very lucky at the present time to still be working but have been fading fast after my appendix removal surgery in 2012. I wake and go to bed tired, the pain is at present, severe. My arms are like lead and my hands are on fire, just the backs not the palms. My short term memory is suffering. I am hesitant to try new meds due to side effects. I have little support so please tell me there are others out there who are coping and what has helped you. Thank you in advance for your reply.View Thread
