- DX FIBRO
Here is the individual who claims that "Fibromyalgia doesn't exist" offering advice on managing fibromyalgia pain.I wish Ibuprofen dented my pain.
Continued use of Ibuprofen will destroy your gut biome and then you will have a whole new set of problems. Been there, done that. It took me almost a year of active gut biome repair to get it healthy again.
By far the most helpful things I have found to decrease/ almost eliminate all pain while sleeping are (in order):
-Hydration, hydration, hydration. The key is you need electrolytes in the water or you won't get the deep hydration you need. I started with Nuun Sports tabs. After proving that they worked I have since switched to my own concoction to save money. Before I go to bed I drink 32oz of water with two tabs. At 2am I drink another 32os with two more tabs. If this works for you you can experiment with decreasing the amount of water/electrolytes you take in per night. This was a magic bullet for me. It eliminated 95% of my pain.
-Ice bath. Not as bad as it sounds. It's more like a cold bath. You don't need the water any lower than 55degF. 15min in there right before bed netted me a big pain decrease and also improved my sleep dramatically. Cooling your body temp down even a few deg has been proven over and over again to get you to sleep faster and allow you to sleep better. Of course this is a lot more uncomfortable than drinking water. I only do the ice bath thing after extremely strenuous activity of really bad inflammation flare ups.
-CBD oil. I've tried all sorts of CBD oils and finally found one that is "nuclear"! It works fantastic for fibo body pain. It works better than Oxy's for me. Not only does it help a lot with the pain but it also gets into your body deep enough to relax you and help you sleep better.
Hope this helps.
