I used to be on BP medication but then I lost a lot of weight and now my blood pressure is perfect. I know many who have BP problems who don't have weight issues either.
I am 70 and am also on statins. I too developed more pain so I take 100 mg of coq10 twice a day. My cholesterol has always been good but I'm diabetic so my doctor wants me to keep my cholesterol very low so that's why I take statins.
I also take krill oil and that does help a little.
I've been on ibuprofen for 30 years and it hasn't affected my blood pressure...just my being overweight did. My blood pressure generally runs 110/60 even though I'm taking ibuprofen. But, Fibro isn't considered an inflammatory illness so you might not need the NSAID's. I do because I have several inflammatory llnesses but fibro isn't one of them.
Lj's suggestion of stretching is a good one. I do that too and it just helps keep me more flexible. And quite a few members use the rubs too.
Stay away from Dr. Google. He can do you in. You can become anxious about what you read, have more stress and the info may not be accurate. I have a wonderful board certified doctor who keeps on top of things and runs blood work a couple of times a year. If I started having problems with what I'm doing, I would know it.
I also keep a positive attitude and that helps me almost as much as medication. It gives me peace and far less stress and that helps a bundle.
I hope you find exactly what works best for you. What I do works good for me and I live a pretty normal life now in spite of Fibro. I always keep in mind to pace myself though. That's where I primarily can run into problems.
