    I really enjoyed your blog here! This is the first time I have seen you. Have had fibromyalgia since 1992. I find that benefiber really helps and also am on 2 tramadol each evening but want to get off of that. Alka Seltzer cold I have used lately. I take vitamins D 5000 each day and have a double massager for years. It’s not in our heads but only when my doctor finally found a marker for inflammation in blood test. Also she sent me to a rheumatologist who suggests tai chi. I go for myofascial therapy and chiropractic.
    Tons of water is filtered with my countertop aquasana filter.Also because they figured out the fibro, it allows me to take 6 days of FMLA from work a month. I live alone but have several cats and been in rescue for 10 years now, a vegan for 6. I still have to watch yeast and corn and sugar but also no soy or gmos. I have much more info we can share. I certainly want to compliment you on this interactive
    site is fantastic and I want to share also get to know you better. I am in my early 60’s. Remember to try Tai chi and Medicare and insurance cover the myofascial therapy. Please add these two options to your regiment.Well best wishes more later. Can relate to the Epsom salts and supplements, God bless you and your hunka hunka! Love Deb Fowler.
