Hey there! I am on malic acid/magnesium for about a week now. I could not find it and took the advice of people here and found it on Pilgrims Pride website. I can relate to your thinking that fatigue, depression and FB fog could be related. It is true that FM is technically not progressive, but as I have had it explained to me, much like auto-immune issues, FM can attack wherever it wants to, whenever it wants to. So progressive? Maybe not. Debilitating to anywhere in the body it wants to rest? Yes. There are many others on this forum who have more years of experiences with this disorder than I. Perhaps they can chime in on this important question. Its as if we are asking a new "chicken and the egg" question- which came first: disorientation/aphasia/short term memory loss, OR fibro fog? Are they one and the same? Thoughts, anyone?
