    Turmeric/Curcumin

    Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory and for some provides relief. I myself have not tried it as I’m not a fan of the spice

    Have you tried Cryotherapy or Whole Body Infrared Light Therapy?

    No I haven’t. What are your qualifications? Do you have a medical background? If you’re starting a business based on this treatment, why don’t you have the answers you seek? I always view people such as you with a ginormous degree of suspicion. Far to may charletins are lurking in this world...

    Trying To Be Happy Today

    Things that made me happy today..... my hubby is sick with a flu and finally I get to take of him instead of him taking care of me. I baked kiwi banana bread for him and no bake protein bites.

    Driving

    @sunkacola. I truly understand the grieving of your partner and the bike connection. My heart is sad for you. Kind of a double loss.....physical pain and heart pain. Perhaps the day will come where you will get back in the saddle, even for a quick toot around the corner. I think deep down I’m...

    Numbness in both feet

    I can have numbness to my left hand by my pinky finger. It randomly comes and goes though. Chatted with the Dr but didn’t get any real answers. Chalked it down to FM. I can’t disagree as I have no other symptoms and it’s been going on for years.

    Trying To Be Happy Today

    Things that made me happy yesterday. In spite of feeling icky I still ran 8k along the river. While running I got passed by an old guy on his electric scooter. Too funny. I’ve been chuckling since then. He was motoring along pretty good too. I stopped to take pics of the beautiful river...

    Supposedly Fibro, but perplexed about one thing...

    I hear you! I’ve fought with Fibro since 1993ish and I’ve managed to keep active. Since 2007 it’s become much worse, however, I still manage to go to the gym, do HIIT, weight train and ride my motorcycle. Admittedly there would be some gaps where I hit the wall. (I have trouble pacing myself)...

    Does this sound like Fibro?

    You’re post did not come across as an anecdote. If that was your original intent and it did not work out, please do not get angry at me. As David the moderator pointed out, some of your wording definitely led the reader to conclude that suicide is an option. No, I would not tell a person who...

    Does this sound like Fibro?

    Let’s not encourage ANYONE to take their life. Yes, fighting a painful condition can feel hopeless and breed depression which in turn causes “ faulty” thinking. This is exacerbated by Fibro fog leading to the inability to think clearly and concisely. This is where unwise and not well thought out...

    I hope I'm not alone :( Skin senstivity and restless "leg" all over?

    I have felt rls type symptom all over as well. Not to the degree you describe. I find getting up and walking around a bit helps as well as a heating pad. If it’s true rls magnesium helps. I’m not recommending by mouth as I’m not a Dr and you would need blood work to reveal your mag levels...

    Driving

    @sunkacola, my current ride is a Honda cbr 500r, sweet sport bike. I love it. I’ve owned and rode several bikes, from a Honda cbr 250r, Honda cbf 1000, and HD Sportster. My fav ride is a sport bike. Very lightweight and flickable. I know what you mean about hanging on to the bikes. It’s a love...

    Driving

    @sunkacola. I’m torn about parting with my bike but I can not justify having it sit in my garage not being used, losing value and costing me money (registration and insurance). What kind of bikes do you have?

    Driving

    Still driving as well. May be giving up my motorcycle though. I’m just too sore and the enjoyment is gone. Guess the time has come to shelve the helmet
