Hello everyone - I am new to this group. I'm so glad I found a site like this (actually, my husband found it ;-)). I've been dealing with fibromyalgia since June of last year. I have not received a diagnosis, but I pretty much have all of the symptoms. A rheumatologist prescribed Gabapentin for me, but I just recently stopped taking it. I found that it gave me horrible mood swings and other unpleasant side effects. I've read other people's posts who have had the same problem. I wonder if there are natural supplements/remedies that anyone could recommend? I've read that calcium and magnesium supplements help calm you down and promote better sleep. Since I've been off of the Gabapentin, I'm dealing with insomnia off and on. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
