One things that can really help is Red Light therapy, as it can increase circulation and help to repair cells. It might be something to try along
with your other treatments. It was developed by NASA and has been cleared by the FDA for use. I was very skeptical at first, but after a few months,
it really helped with pain.
Red Light Therapy
I agree that GMO foods are causing many of our problems. The pain can be very frustrating and it can be very challenging to find things that help,
but try to hang in there.
Along with Red Light Therapy, I used many of the other things mentioned in this thread including Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda, Coconut Oil,
magnesium, fish oil, cod liver oil, and adrenal supplements. I just started using as many things as possible (things that were safe and made sense)
and as the years went on I got better and better, but it took a while. Also, Mucinex (guaifenesin) really helps with pain, as guaifenesin is a muscle
relaxant, that has almost no side effects and can be purchased over the counter. Of course, check with your doctor regarding any of the above
Stress really makes things worse, but most of the stress is caused by the fibro, so it is very hard not to be stressed. This site helped me a lot,
and I would still be suffering if I had not found it, but it might not be for everyone.
I will not take Lyrica because of the side effects, especially the fact that it destroys brain synapses and several nurses and doctors told me to be
very careful with it, but I know it has been a miracle drug for many people. Just wondered if you were aware of this side effect.
You may have thoughts about suicide while taking Lyrica. Your doctor will need to check you at regular visits. Do not miss any scheduled
appointments. Call your doctor at once if you have any new or worsening symptoms such as: mood or behavior changes, depression, anxiety, insomnia, or
if you feel agitated, hostile, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically), or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself.
I am much better, even though I was told repeatedly that I would only get worse as time went on, so there is hope even if it does not feel like it.
