    Benefits of Probiotics!

    Hi, I was reading about the benefits of probiotics and even my Gastroenterologist recommended them.I started them once again because I was in a flare for about 3 weeks with extreme nausea and digestive issues. I happen to find a brand in Rite aid that was $18.00 and contained Vit d and also...

    New and searching for info....

    My massage therapist was the first to mention the possibility that Fibro may be what is causing my pain and tightness in my muscles. Ironically, I went to massage school some years ago and we were schooled a little about "WOMEN" with Fibro. One of the male instructors went so far to say that...

    marine phytoplankton claims to be "effective in treating" fibro: overly optimistic?

    marine phytoplankton claims to be "effective in treating" fibro: overly optimistic? Has anyone heard of marine phytoplankton supplements? I hadn't until my mom started telling me about this powder she was taking that was supposed to be great for... well... all kinds of things. She's using a...

    Hi all I am new here. I am 23 years old and have lived with pain and exhaustion for as long as I can remember I suppose it became more noticeable in my late teens. I am currently in the process of being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and potentially endometriosis. As well as this I am also...

    I suddenly feel so old...hello, everyone, new 'club' member here.

    Hello, everyone!! Well, so here I am. After going through all the stages of "grief", I'm finally at the acceptance stage: I have fibro, and ignoring it for several years hasn't worked to dispel it. Long story short: our doctor diagnosed me several years ago, but I've always "carried on" like I...

    It's official - starting on the right foot

    Hi all, Fairly new to the forum (been poking around since I realised I probably had fibro). I saw the rheumatologist yesterday and it's more or less official: I have Fibro. He checked for tender points (didn't get a count, but I have a bunch) and the symtoms questionnaire all came up positive...

    Tender points while on meds.

    Hey, I am currently being evaluated for Fibro, and finally see the rheumatologist on Monday. I'm not sure entirely what to expect, but probably they will check for tender/trigger points. I'm pretty sure I have several, though probably not all of them. There are spots on the side of my elbows...

    My life is being stolen

    You know, I thought it was hard enough finding out that I had Rheumatoid Arthritis a year and a half ago. It was hard to wrap my head around all the pills that I needed to take just to slow the disease and manage the pain. It was hard to give myself weekly injections. It is hard to continue to...

    Plexus products with fibromyalgia and chronic pain

    I have seen lots of closed threads discussing Plexus products with fibromyalgia, so I figured I'd start an open one and share my story. I have dealt with chronic pain for over 10 years, and quickly reached the point where an sort of "pain killer" truly did nothing. As a single mum and teacher...
