Hi, my name is Jackie I'm 54 and l live in Stourbridge West Midlands, For 4 yearssince stopping the PILL l have been suffering severe muscle pain all over my body, and after having every test imaginable and being made to feel it must be either my age, job or now menapause finally a touch test was carried out and Fibromyalgia diagnosed. I have discovered a supplement called GABA which after taking 2 at night for a few days seem to be helping with my lack of sleep and also easing the muscle pain.and crippling cramps. I was offered amitryptiline but didn't like the possible side effects. I'm starting to feel more relaxed and alive again and not like every movement is an effort. (no side effects)

Hi Jackie, its great that you have finally found something that seems to be working for you. I've tried Gaba but didnt like the side effects I was getting so stopped. I have seen a nutritional therapist and done a detox for pain which really worked (boy do I know it when I now eat "crap")

Good luck with the Gaba, hopefully you will continue to feel better.

I have just done a post on how wonderful Amytriptiline has worked for me. I cannot praise it enough, and thankfully I have no side effects. I have had Fibro for over 10 years now, and its been controlled by Amytriptiline for 8 years and I can lead a totally normal life again. For me it is a wonder drug. Glad you have found something that works for you too.

Massage can be a great benefit when targeting that deep pain with fibromyalgia.

I am a massage therapist but I have had a good response with 2 clients that suffer from fibromyalgia. Good Luck.

I am not a doctor. I have fibromyalgia and every time I think I have a handle on it...it blows up in my face πŸ™

First I want to give you the best I can offer as to the cause. From everything I have heard and read, fibromyalgia is the reward for surviving something that caused such powerlessness that your chemical fight or flight mechanism broke.

So your body weeps out those fight or flight chemicals at the slightest stress and those chemicals wear out the body, get stored in the muscles, cause cramps, knots, pain and the illusion of pain.

People with fibromyalgia can consider themselves stress intolerant. So the treatment of choice would be to reduce stress in your life. Removing people in your life that cause you stress (as much as possible). Remove chemicals from your foods and water. Try to do some small exercises each day to move these chemicals from your muscles. Turn off the TV. Play soothing music. Change jobs if this one is too stressful. Do what ever you can to gain a feeling of control over your life.

The only real treatment is deep sleep. Not laying in bed all the time, depression sleep. That only makes more pain as you will feel bruised from pressure points even if it is a temporpedic mattress. But the deep sleep that comes from being awake the entire day and being ragged out tired.

I also find...no msg, no alcohol, no sugar (stevia instead) and no caffeine helpful.

I know it's a lot of information and it may be an illusion. But even if it only gives you a feeling of power over your life? It will help. If you alter the perception of helplessness to one of power it will effect your chemical output πŸ™‚

PS...and give gratitude each morning reaching up and back with a deep breath, and then touch your toes. This does something special for your body/mind. Try it πŸ™‚

Another good remedy idea for you...

Hiya,

I was just posting another reply when I saw your post.

I thought I had this awful condition for a while and was really worried as my dad died from a nerve related health problem.

I had terrible muscle pain following an operation and as I hate taking over-the-counter medicine, I did some research and found that celery and b vitamins if taken together for a while worked wonders.

I can assure you I was in a lot of pain and couldn't get off the sofa, which with two young kids and a busy business was awful and very stressful.

I hated celery, but was determined to try it, and you know what, I worked a treat!

If you look up celery on the net you will find that it calms nerves brilliantly.

A lot of people self diagnose this condition only to realise later on that they were simply run down. So don't feel that if you've got it, you'll always have it.

I had to use this combination again when my wisdom teeth started playing up and gave me facial neuralgia. The dentist gave me everything to get rid of the pain and nothing worked except this.

Nerve pain and muscle twitching and pain can often be caused by inflammation and infection that we are unaware of too. I can suggest some ideas for this if you need. Please feel free to let me know.

Bright Blessings.

Inanna xxx

I have a tendency to waffle so I will keep this short and you can ask if you want more info.

The symptoms of Fibro can be caused by various things and You will come across lots of individual remedies online and from various people that may work very well but rather than look for the one thing to 'cure' this, you should first, simply put the right things into your body and take the wrong things out. Give that 90 day's and you should see amazing results.

Look at:

stopping refined foods, sugar, artificial sweeteners, MSG, gluten, foods fried in oil, foods high in preservatives, processed dairy, plastic fats (margarine type spreads and plastic cheese)

Adding - lots (work up to but not limited too) three pints of vegetable juice per day, celery, romaine lettuce, spinach, kale, cucumber, zucchini, carrot, beet roots, lemon, limes, and the odd, but not too much pineapple and apples.

Get lots of healthy fat to help rebuild new healthy cells, butter, raw milk, cream, free range eggs, avocado, coconut oil oily fish and some healthy grass fed meats..

Make sure your stomach is working properly! take a full spectrum digestive supplement, and take a quality liquid multi nutrient supplement, AND an organic, plant derived colloidal mineral supplement as a base. You should, (according to Dr Joel Wallach) supplement with 9 Grams of a quality EFA supplement per day, take Vitamin E at 1200iu per day, selenium at 300mcg per day (very important) and make sure you get (maybe supplement until you know you are producing stomach acid again) amino acids Methionine, Cysteine and Cystine. (make sure your multi has at lease the RDA of iodine)

OK, I apologise. I waffled. Allot of info there but don't be overwhelmed. Just make small changes week by week, starting with cutting out the bad stuff.

I hope that helps a bit

Sorry, but not really. What if you already have a restrictive but healthy diet? What are you going to suggest causes FM now?

You might like to look for some ideas.

Really I would suggest you see a [url]registered Nutritional Therapist [/url]who will be able to take all your specific symptoms, lifestyle, medical history and eating habits into account and advise you accordingly - rather than just generalities.

I am not going to suggest anything causes FM Now.....

Maybe post up your health, restrictive diet and all that you are doing and you can get some constructive help?
