This is to TikiIsMyKitty.
I am sorry for your pain of Fibromyalgia. I came down with this bad conditon and man is it painful. It is like a living nightmare to have this kind of pain and the fibro-fog incapacitates you from being able to move or think.
I have found complete remission by taking 3 calcium, 3 fish oil, 2 B-complex, 1 folic acid, 1 iron,2 magnesium complex capsules and one multivitimin a day. I take the folic acid, and 1 B-complex, 1-fish oil, 1 magnesium, the multiivitamin, 1 calcium in the morning and then around 11:00 a fish oil and calcium pill, then about 2:00 another fish oil and calcium pill. At about 4:30 I take the remaining pills. I also take the concentrace liquid minerals each day.
I got a lot of information from Moss Greene of Bellaonline.com and this protocol of supplements has worked to my total amazement. I have been free from it for about 2 years now. Every once in awhile I will have an episode, but it is always mild.
I also have along with the Fibro, Restless leg syndrome, Periodic limb movement, ADHD, Irritable bowel syndrome, high blood pressure and a thyroid conditon, and clinical depression but life is very good because none of these are fatal and all the medications I take make me feel like I don't have anything. I have gotton all these things due to genetic factors. Our son is bi-polar and this has been a trial for us but it is one day at a time for this.
I don't know whether this regimen will work for you but it has for some people.
Hope you feel better.
My husband and I talked last night, and things are doing better now. The little baby slept like an angel last night, thank the Lord. I guess I kind of beat up my husband in my sleep last night, but I was having a weird dream, and with my medication, I don't know what I am doing in my sleep. Poor guy. I suppose I really shouldn't complain so much. He has been very wonderful our whole relationship. He has been very supportive. It's kind of been one illness after another with me for years now, and so when we first got together, I was having problems. But he has always taken care of me. Even when we were just friends. When we first met, I started having blackouts. They did all kinds of tests on me, but we never found the reason. But, he barely knew me, and he would drive me places I needed to go because he didn't want me blacking out at the wheel.
I just feel like I have been hit with everything. I found out Thursday that my aunt (my mom's sister) was diagnosed with Fibro 20 years ago. She is doing better because she like almost completely redid her lifestyle. I suppose I need to look at things in my life and see what I can change to make things better. I think a lot of this right now is that I am so stressed by having this illness, and there are so many stressors in my life that I just can't handle dealing with it. Stress makes everything so much worse. I wish I could take a little vacation, where I didn't have anything stressful around me. And I could just recoup for a little while. Then maybe I could look at all the stressors in my life in a different light.
I really appreciate the fact that you are all here for me. It means so much to me. I am so thankful to have people to turn to when I just need to vent, or when I need advice. So, thank you all so much. You are all like my family.
Seeker: I am already on a lot of medications. My doctor says that it is a shame that someone my age has to be on so many meds. I looked at him and said, "Hey, I don't care how many meds I have to take as long as they help." Along with the Fibro, I have IBS, Major Depressive Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, anxiety issues, and a few other things that are illuding me at the time.
Anyways. I won't keep you all. Thanks again.
SleepyBug,Sometimes it is just nice to have someone understand what you are going through. My hubby and I talked, and we made up and everything. Things have been really hard on him the past week especially. I somehow ran out of pain meds a week early, and I have been in a whole lot of pain. All I want to do is lie around and do nothing, but I have been trying to be as helpful as possible. I wish I had a magic wand that I could just wave and the house would be spotless, with everything in its place, all the laundry would be done, and we wouldn't have to worry about any of that. Wouldn't it be nice? I dream too. Sometimes it can be disappointing when you realize that things that like are pretty impossible, but, hey, it never stops me from dreaming. Thanks for the hugs. I hope you are doing well.*soft hugs*
