I had suspected I had fibro before I was diagnosed with diabetes in 12/07..and I was diagnosed with it and CFS finally yesterday by the doctor I recently changed to who is pretty cool thus far. He respects my opinions and preferences in my treatment. We are trying to do nutrition/supplements first, and the big problem I have is no sweeteners with diabetes and I cant use sugar. Has any one tried Stevia or Xyitol (spelling ??) Also, I am supposed to only take Tylenol which is like pouring water over my body and expecting it to help with the pain. I am allergic to Nonsteroidals and to most of the Paxil Xanax genre so they are out. Also has any one tried the guaifenisin (spelling ?) protocol I keep reading about
..I am sorry to be a dummy but it is one thing to work in the medical field and know about
fibro, and quite quite another to be on the other side and have it. I trust real people who have dealt/are dealing with the issues, because one "information" site I visited said to ask your supervisor if you could bring a cot to work and rest when you felt bad. I can hear her now..you can rest at home for the rest of your life chikee!!!
Thanks for your help in advance.
Its NOT denial..Its selective reality!
