Hi, Jla, and welcome. I haven't heard of much luck with Guaifenisen therapy but it's worth a shot. You never know what will work well for you.
I take malic acid/magnesium supplements that help with pain and fatigue. Also, I take vitamin D3 and that, too helps with pain and fatigue. Many people with fibromyalgia are deficient in these vitamins and nutrients.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread..the first thread on the forum. There are links to good info about fibro...including links about malic acid/magnesium and vitamin D3 and how they work in your body.
As far as the fog goes...develop a good sense of humor! Some days are worse than other days and, if you worry about it, it does seem to be worse. At least that's what happens to me. Try not to be anxious about this. You have a good head on your shoulders and will be able to carry on like you have been. So, you forget some things. That's alright. Just keep going. I do write things down now. That way, I have my constant reminder to do the important things.
I'm so glad you found us and joined in! I hope to hear more from you soon.
