I am normally a "lurker" on these types of sites but wanted to get some input from others with fibro. I am 29 and was diagnosed 4ish years ago. I currently only take 1 medicine prescribed by my doctor, and that is flexeril to help my legs. I normally take 2 ibuprofen during the day to "dull" the pain, but that's it. I do not take any narcotics as they have never been offered to me, and they have made me sick in the past when I have been prescribed them for dental procedures and my gallbladder surgery.
I would like to learn more about natural remedies and supplements... and I have tried a few, but I am not too sure that they were helping, although I thought they might be. I tried Inflamacare (pain supplement) and while I thought it was helping, I haven't taken it in a while and I'm not really seeing a difference. I also tried Magnesium Malate and I don't think that helped, either. Maybe I didn't give it enough time?
My pain varies but my worst pain is in feet/legs, hands, occasionally shoulder, and hip.
Any tips and/or recommendations are greatly appreciated!
