    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.

    Great week

    Hi, guys! I had a great week. I think it's because I got just the right combination of meds from my doctors and I used them to really kick my exercise into gear.

    Someone who understands

    Hi! I want to communicate with someone who understands fibromyalgia and chronic illness. I have all the diseases that go along with it or are related to it, such as interstitial cystitis.

    Barely Hanging in There

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and I'm not used to sharing details of my fibro with others outside of my family. I am at my breaking point physically and mentally after living with this hellish disease since 1998. In the past, I would have flare-ups especially when temperatures go down, after...
