Hi, Kaylyn, and welcome! I'm sorry you are dealing with this health issue but you have come to a very good place! We have wonderful people on this forum that have good ideas to help you live a full and enjoyable life with fibromyalgia.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There is a lot of good info about fibro. You will find a list of symptoms, some great stretching exercises that really do work, and other goodies.
I have both costo and fibromyalgia and my doctor has me taking ibuprofen, with food to protect my stomach, and it does help me. I take ibuprofen and Tylenol for pain for the fibro and I also take malic acid/magnesium supplements for pain and fatigue. These have really helped me but they don't work for everyone. There is a link in the Fibro 101 thread all about them. Why don't you read it and see what you think!
I'm so glad you joined us. Read post and don't hesitate to ask questions. That's what we're here for. I hope to hear more from you soon!
