In this video from Living On A Dime, Tawra and Mike talk about what it’s like living with both fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
The couple talk about what Tawra has found helpful for both conditions. Heat and humidity exacerbate Tawra’s symptoms so she has found a lot of relief by moving to Idaho where the air is cooler and there’s less humidity. Tawra has found that light exercise, massage, over-the-counter painkillers, Epsom salt baths and staying as stress-free as possible helps her manage the everyday effects of fibromyalgia. She’s also discovered that she has food intolerances so adjusting her diet and taking supplements have helped her feel better.
