It may be considered a factor in mitigation that respondent appears dedicated to relieving the suffering of fibromyalgia patients and feels that he holds the key to their recovery. Any mitigation from these noble feelings, though, is tempered by respondent's raging entrepreneurial spirit. He engaged in extensive and hyperbolic efforts to market his "discoveries;" he paid commissions to employees and former patients who brought in patients; he insisted that patients pay for treatments in advance and in cash; he charged patients $62.50 for each of multiple daily adjustments; he was reluctant and slow to return monies when patients left before completing their treatment; and he charged patients approximately $1,000 for a week of monitoring their conditions once he determined they were well. On balance, respondent's devotion to relieving the suffering fibromyalgia patients does not mitigate his conduct.

I wish you a lot of luck. I know the search to find something to control the pain can be difficult. I use ibuprofen with food, extra strength Tylenol, Malic acid/magnesium supplements, and vitamin D3 to help with pain and fatigue. This doesn't make me pain-free but it does take the edge off the pain so I can live my life. I'm not willing to take narcotics.
If you get so you can walk, that is wonderful and will help with the pain. It has helped me a lot. Also, if you have access to a pool, that is great exercise for people with fibro.
I've had fibro for 22 years and I'm 62. You sure do get sick and tired of being sick and tired! Have you checked out the Fibro 101 thread...the first thread on the forum? There are links to good information about fibromyalgia, including information about malic acid/magnesium supplements and vitamin D3 and how they work in your body. Many with fibro are deficient in these and that can cause some pain and fatigue, too.
Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. I do hope you get some relief from your pain. I hope to hear more from you soon.
