It started when I was 7 with JRA in my feet, over the next 15 years it took over most of my body. I was in so much pain
when I was 25 that I swore I would be in a wheelchair by the time I hit 35. I had times when I could barely walk.I started running and it went into remission for a few years and came back full force. I've had most of my "female" parts either removed or realigned. I went to a rhumey who blew me off because I have a heart specialist so she sent me back to my PCP. Fibro was dx 5 yrs ago but symptons much longer ago
Some of the meds I've been on over the years are: Clinoril, Amatriptolyne, Noratriptolyne, Mobic, 800 Iboprofin,
morphine, hydrocordone, predisone, depro medrol, niasprin, topril, allegra, claratin, zyrtec, oral nystatin, flagyl,
rhinocort, nasonex, z-pak, med-pak, tons of antibiotics, darvacet, percocet, flexoril and quite a few more I can't think of.
Now I take Co Q-10, Super Cissus RX, Bio-Sil, Hair vitimans, Multi vit, Colustrum, Hylaronic Acid, CMO, HMB,
primrose, bromelain, ech-goldenseal, Usnea, HGH and a few other herbs for various ailments. NO prescription
drugs anymore. Tylenol or Aleeve if it gets bad. Definately checking into the melatonin.
I can now work a 12 hour day without much problem. Sometimes I get achy after a 12 but the 8 hr. days no longer
bother me. I'm finally sleeping most nights and have minimal tolerable pain before bed. I can kneel down on the
floor without putting my body in shock for the first time in years. The pressure points are healing and the calcium
deposits in joints are disolving. The popping and cracking are now reduced. I'm glad I met the body builder who
introduced me to some of these wonderful cures.
