Hi MrsIdaho, and welcome. As you probably know, Fibro symptoms are unpredictable and vary from day to day. This summer I climbed five miles up a mountain and as I sit here today I can't believe I did it with no problem! Almost everyone on this forum have been through a myriad of testing to rule out other things before being dx'd with fibro. No matter what the doc's tell me, I still believe I got it after being exposed to flea killer that my friend put all over a room I stayed in for a week and never vaccumed it from the bedding and rugs. I had symptoms a week later and it hasn't cut me a break since.
I don't blame you for not want to take anti-depressants unless you intend to be on them for the rest of your life. Many here may disagree with me and have had success, but I am in week two of withdrawal and I wouldn't wish this on anyone. Just my opinion folks! Never ever again for me!
Bed buddies and hot bathes. Do what you can and don't sweat the small stuff!
