Default Hello!

Hi,

I am new here. I was recently diagnosed with fibro. I suspected it for years. I am able to manage it with stretching, light exercise, massage and acupuncture. I also take turmeric in an effort to limit my intake of ibuprofen.

I have been hesitant to join a fibro support group since I do not take medication. I have been hoping I could learn as much as possible about being healthy and minimizing pain from others.

Welcome to the forum. Not all members here use medications, but try to use natural means as a way to control pain and symptoms. Be sure to read in the chronic pain sections, as well as, alternative meds section. Read the older and new posts for many great ideas. Be sure to ask questions and share your own thoughts and feelings, on what works and does not.

Looking forward to getting to know you through your posts.
