New here. Nausea for me tells me I’m extremely constipated - lifelong- . Mirilax daily & liquid magnesium citrate when I get nauseous. Have to watch what I eat. I’ve had fibro officially since 1987, but think I had it years earlier. Some days it’s a nightmare (
New here. I’ve had fibro since 1987, but am sure I’ve had it longer. The last 6 months have been terrible overall stress wise. The most important thing for me is decent sleep which is hard to get. Pace yourself daily / weekly/ monthly to even out your outings/ tasks. Rushing is a sure way to overdo it. I take a little Amit. before bed and if necessary 1/2 a melatonin gummy. Good luck!
01/2022, new medication Cymbalta 30mg 2/day, Earth's Glory CBD oil 1000mg 1 ml/night and TruBifido1 cap per day. I have to tell you still have some bad days, but this seems to be helping with the depression and digestive issues
My doctor is thinking about putting me on Naltrexone, used for heroin and opioid addiction. Studies are showing that it combines with receptors in the brain for pain. Any thoughts?

Hi @Jemima
Your absence is felt on the forum. I hope you're doing OK lovely lady. Just been reading back through some of your profile posts, I'm so sorry to hear you lost your dog. It sounds like you have been up against it of late 😕
In early 40s when started having fibromayalgic debilitating symptoms .Across between flu symptoms, arthritis and fatigue. So bad a hand resting on my skin hurt. By pure fluke eventually realised if I was taking the pill for 3 months I was pain free. Notice difference after 2 months but takes me 3 months. Most Drs won't believe me. I believe fibromyalgia is connected somehow to hormones. Has anyone experienced this ?
A Reminder that Light will Find Us

Beauty in Weeds

They were useless
Planted in shade
So for many years
There they laid
Amidst the growth
And all the green
Waiting, hoping
To be seen

The Sun saw them
From way up above
And showered upon them
All his love
Now beauty grows
Where once were weeds
And just the sprouting
Of some seeds
I take Lyrica (pregabalin) 200mg 3 times a day. It takes the nerve pain mostly away but completely. I feel hot pins and needles type pain in my under arms and part of my chest and it is really bad without the Lyrica. I take other medicines for other things too. Hope you are doing well.
Hi csh222, just checking in to see how you’re doing? I’m recently diagnosed and struggling to find someone to talk to about it too, so I hope you’ve found an outlet xx
Hello I’m new to the community but not new to fibromyalgia unfortunately. I was diagnosed in 2015 and it’s been a long journey for me. I’m 40 years old and I have two daughters one who is graduating this year and is off to college and the other is 15 n will be a sophomore in high school. Life has been hard trying to be a wife and a mother. I want my old life back! Pain free who’s with me.
