Hi everyone! I have been reading your posts for awhile now and decided to join today. I am 38 although I feel 83 at times. After spending a year in chronic pain and numerous blood tests, I was diagnosed with fybro in April by a Rhumatologist. I've been blessed with an awesome dr. who really cares. I work pt at a healthfood/supplement store. Have done much research on fybro and for me, combining meds. and supplements seems to be working pretty well so far. I suffer from severe migraines, bone pain, neck and shoulder pain tingling and stiffness in hands and feet, occasional leg pain and left hip pain.  Recently having severe digestive problems as well.  These are the vit./supplements I take... multi vit, vit D3, fish oil, glucosamine, valerian, digestive enzymes, calcium/magnesium and greens (superfoods).  My meds. are elavil, tramadol and vicodin as needed. Its nice to have a support group with people who are going through the same thing. Yes, there are sceptics and critics! God Bless and chat soon!! smilewinkgrin
I have the strength to rise above all adversity...

Hi Hollywood, welcome to our fibro family. Im glad you decided to join in we have alot of great people here and we are always willing to try to help out if we can. I can pretty much relate to all your pains except for the migraines. I have somehow been spared from that nightmare. I also do a combination of supplements and meds and my fibro is stable at the moment. (keeping fingers crossed)lol. Please feel free to ask questions, vent when needed or offer advice. It is all welcome here.
