Hi
I am new to this forum and just sending everybody a nighttime
To sleep hello. As I was going through the forum I was reading about
Anxiety (x), Pain that never stops (x) - I have herniated cervical
Disks and severe cervical Foraminal stenosis ( causes severe muscle
Tension in my neck, shoulders and upper back, along with
Numbness into bilateral hands fingers, Tricept weakness,)
Herniated lumbar disk - sciatica (- ?stenosis) - sitting, sleeping,
Standing,walking (everything is associated with pain)
Frequent Migraines (x), Gerd (x), " Globus (x) - that one I am
Having a difficult time with, because I constantly have the
Sensation that there is a foreign object in my larynx that I'd
Like to tear out?!" , Muscle twitches /strange involuntary addl.
Limb movements (tapping of a foot etc). Stress Incontinence
Brain fog when I get tired sometimes sets in so quickly that
I make absolutely no sense (I barely leave the house unless
I have someone with me). Up until 2 years ago I had a career,
I was active and now I am not me.... And probably never will be.
My doctors don't give me any hope. I don't tolerate any form of
Regular exercise/PT/acupuncture/chiropractor/surgery not an
Option......(After any type of spinal manipulation migraines are unbearable)
Now I have accepted that a certain amount Of discomfort and pain
Will be part of my life.
Sometimes when looking back I Wonder why... Is it because of the
flu vaccine I had 1 month Earlier?
I am lucky that I had private Disability insurance. My children are
adults, live close by and are caring,dependable and my partner
actually has turned out to be more supportive then I'd ever could
have had imagined.
Somebody I recently met mentioned so mention about aryuvedic medicine?

What is Ayurvedic Medicine?
Ayurvedic medicine, also known as Ayurveda, is an ancient medical system that originated in India and has evolved there over thousands of years. Considered a whole medical system, each component of Ayurvedic medicine can be used on its own or in conjunction with the other aspects. Ayurveda focuses on the following:
· Integration and balance of the body, mind, and spirit
· Use of various products and techniques to cleanse the body and restore balance, including herbs, massage and special diets
The holistic approach to healing is designed to help prevent illness as well as treat illness through cleansing the body of substances that can cause disease and in so doing, reestablish harmony and balance.
Treatment of Fibromyalgia in Aryuvedic Medicine includes herbal approach, specific diet and nutritional system, yoga and meditation with Yogasana and stretching excersises

Anyway... It would be interesting if anyone tried this route and the outcome..
I am currently on gluten free and that seems to help the Fibro Part of my Pain....
In regards to the second part of your question I have tried a lot of the most common therapies suggested for fibromyalgia the best for me was the heat wrap although it always left me drained for the remainder of the day I felt energized and almost pain free the following days. biofeedback and using a modified version of the 12 step program are also ways to deal with the pain episodes. Having my higher power behind me gives me the strength and endurance to focus on positive aspects of my life therefore helping me forget about my pain.
