Everytime a commercial comes on that promises pain relief, I perk up a bit. This one was for one of those inversion machines.

I'm not sure wether to laugh or to buy one.

Hey Orlo...you're young and it probably wouldn't give you a brain hemmorhage or tear your joints out of their sockets!  I have a friend with one of those (she's 60) and hangs upside down in one of those every day. When she gets out of it, her face is beet red and she staggers around for about ten minutes so disoriented that she looks like she just spent a night a Woodstock.  I just laugh...I guess it's good to stretch the muscles but for fibro...I don't think so...but that is just my opinion.  "I am not a doctor but do play one on t.v."

I actually considered that Dr. franks's stuff they sell on T.V...bought some for my dogs with arthritis and my husband says he sees a differnce but I don't.  I too, 'perk up' whenever I see something that promises to relieve pain!  Just as a warning...Never ever try Capzasin if you have sensitive skin!  I cried for two days!

Hanging upside down? That would only make me more braindead, or would it make me smarter with all the blood rushing to my head?

That is too funny for me. But maybe it works for some.

Have a wonderful painfree day.

hugs, Karen

Haha. Oh commercials.

It claimed to be able to "natural adjust your body" or some ridiculous thing like that. But acording to some chiropractors, that's the cure for fibromyalgia! I avoid all things that claim to cure fibromyalgia.

It's not from an adult store. I have one and I hang upside down most days. You do strap your feet in and lean back and put your hands over your head. It does wonders for my back. But, because of my weight, it makes my feet hurt. I wish I could hang for 30 minutes a day, but I'm usually at around 5. You all should try it, just come to my house. Diane
