I was dx with fibro about 4 years ago. I have tried lyrics, cymbalta and had bad side effects from them and no relief. Also had bad withdrawals from the cymbalta. Tramadol works ok but can not take it several days in a row or my vision gets blurry. Flexirel helps the pain but makes me very sleepy. I have been on this Limu for a week now and it seems to help my energy level some. My friends that take it for other things say I need to give it at least a month to really notice a difference. It is a dietary supplement made from seaweed. Has anyone had any luck with this? I am really hoping it will help. I have heard good things about it.

Thanks
Kelly

Hi there...

I'm not sure why you have a website that actually has your name connected to it...are you selling these products of theirs?

Any type of advertisement is not allowed on the boards so I think that link will be taken down. You can find the forum rules up top that list the things that we are supposed to follow on here.

*To others.....do NOT click on any links as they can contain spam or even viruses.

If you are truly someone who is interested in getting to know people on the boards and share your story than this is fine....I'm just not sure in what way you are connected with this company.

I would be extremely careful putting things into my body where the intention from the seller (this company) is to make money.

PLEASE let your Dr. and Pharmacist know about this drink as many "seemingly natural" things can interact with medications.

I do light exercise every day and sleep well each night for energy. I also eat well during the day and keep stress at a minimum...these help with maintaining a healthy weight and feeling good. I never put money into some "miracle" drink that is going to solve all my problems...

3, two-level, cervical fusions over the past 11 years. The last one was anterior and posterior with lots of fun titanium!
Still have active herniations along with knee problems and another Morton's neuroma in left foot.
I try to find joy in each day even with chronic pain:)

I was wanting to see if anyone has tried it. I have talked it over with my dr. He is ok with me trying it. You can look online and do the research if you are worried that it is a product that may harm your body. I myself would not take anything if I had not researched the side effects on it. When you buy it it gives you a website. If you don't want to go to it that is ok with me. It also has info on there. I was just trying to get personal stories on it. I am at the point meds are not working for me and want to give this a try. I'm sorry if you took it another way.

I googled Limu....Dr. Andrew Weil thinks it's a waste of money. He says there's no evidence it has any benefit whatsoever. Then I went to their website, and it's a pyramid scheme. That's no doubt why they gave you that website.

Kelly, if I were you, I'd run, not walk away! And, as Snowbunny said, make sure your doctor and pharmacist know you're taking this. Just because it's made from seaweed, there's no guarantee it's even safe, let alone helpful.

I hope you do get help from it. But I've seen too many people get burned and lose a lot of money to "wonder" remedies.

After my current bout with "natural" product... I'm swearing off them for now. Can't handle another around of acute hepatitis.

Yea I saw one dr posted something negative about it. I know people who have been on it that it helped, just no one with fibro. Have not heard of any negative effects from it. You google cymbalta or some other med they give you for fibro you get pages of side effects and the things they do to people. It's everyone's right to try what they want. I just know me personally I have too many side effects on these meds and some are worse than the fibro itself. I am going to continue to try the Limu for at least a month and see how it does. It doesn't cost anymore than the other rx's I have tried

Kelly,

Sure. Good luck with it. What else do you do to manage your Fibro? It's a combination approach that works the best.

Right now Prozac, tramadol as needed and flexeril at night. Going to start yoga and see off that helps any. Oh and dr just put me on vitamin d cause it is low.

Hi, Kelly! You might see some improvement in your pain. A vitamin D deficiency can cause pain and fatigue. I take 5,500 IU of D 3 a day. Another supplement that might help you is malic acid/magnesium supplements. If you haven't already, do check out Fibro 101...the first thread on the forum. There are links about these supplements and how they work in the body.

I also do gentle stretching exercises and I walk or swim daily as my form of gentle exercise. Pacing yourself helps, too. As Debbie mentioned, it's a multifaceted approach that seems to work best for fibro.

Hope some of this helps you. I'm looking forward to getting to know you better. Don't hesitate to ask questions because we are here to help you. Hope to hear more from you soon.

Thank you. He has me on 50,000 once a week. My magnesium levels were good when he did my blood work last month.
