Update to the prayer request thread, daughter is doing wonderful, dh is doing good.  He is worried about his job if it is eplipsy, my view God is good and it will work out. 
I did buy magnesium/malate capsules, 833 mg.   I'm sure it was from stress and lack of sleep but i had tremors in my left hand and arm yesterday.  I have had them a couple times before, this time stupid me started to panic a tad, I think the lack of sleep played a role in it too.
How much do you take?  Will it help with the acheness too?  I'm on vit d from the doctor that has seem to reduce the amount of feeling achey.
Also have an appointment in two weeks for the doctor, I'm gonna say look we have got to figure this out, if I have to live with this I'm fine with that not knowing is what takes a toll.
Pray everyone has a blessed day.

KellieJo, I take the malic acid/magnesium supplements.  It has magnesium malate in it.  But, by taking this and counting the magnesium in my multiple vitamin, I'm only taking a little over 700 mg of magnesium.  You might be taking too much.  Also, you generally need to start out slowly or you can get diarrhea from magnesium.  It's also good to take calcium with this.
There is a link in Fibro 101 about the malic acid/magnesium supplements and how they work in your body.  You might want to read that.
I'm really happy about your good news!  Prayer does help.  I know two people that have been stricken with epilepsy.  Once they started on medications and stabilized, they went back to what they were doing.  One was my neighbor.  He has a 1 1/2 hour drive to work and he's back doing that.  So, your husband should be fine.  Epilepsy can be least this is what Ive seen from my friends.

hi just want ed say ive been a sufferer for twenty years with fibro and ive tried everything and been told by medical professionals the usual aray of reasons but i discoveered by accident when the doctor put me on reductil a weight loss medication as you prpbably no weight gain is a side affect of not being able to move to well and meds that my pain was greatly reduced and my head was clearer i initially attributed this to the fact id lost some weight so i experimented with this drug and kept a daily diary as to what symptons i had and how i felt and over a 6 month period i discovered that i didnt lose any more weight but my pain was significantly reduced and i had more energy when on reductil simbitraine hydrachloride which acts as a seretonin and dopamine reuptake inhibiter and when off it lots of pain more medication to deal with pain and fog so ask your doctor and give it a try for 3months and see what you think

Hi chocolate lover,

Welcome to the fibromyalgia forum. I am so glad that you have joined us. I am sure you will find this to be a wonderful place to come.

I am glad that the supplements are working for you. Another one that you might want to look into is malic acid/magnesium. It really helps with the pain and gives you energy. The magnesium makes my muscles feel normal. There is some information on it on the thread called fibro101. It is the second thread on the forum. I am sure that you will find the whole thread interesting. So please take some time and read it.

I hope that you find some weight loss with the reductil. It often takes time and patience. I am losing gradually. It can be frustrating, but keep trying. With the proper nutrition and some exercise, you should see results. I do a lot of walking whenever I can. It really helps. And it makes you feel good mentally too.

I hope to see you post more. And I hope that you are having a good evening.

Hugs, Karen
