I cannot find a way to contact anyone, and if I did use the admin's email address,, I cannot use email right now for receiving a response.

I wanted to reference a study that I knew was in my thread titled something like "There are inflammatory markers being found in fibromyalgia."
As always, i did a site search for "fibro inflammation" . 10 pages of results, and it's not there in the search results.

I search "fibromyalgia inflammation". It is not there. It had thousands of hits the last time it was bumped to page one of the board, and it is usually on page 1 of the results for the search. I could believe page 2. But not appearing at all for the 10 pages total, makes me wonder what could have happened?

A thread about Hot Tubs appears. The inflammation studies thread should be there, and it should be well before page 10, but it is not there. This means that people searching for evidence on the topic get the one point of view multiple times, but not the multiple studies' evidence that I presented years ago.

This is the thread.

At one site that I am familiar with, the search feature present threads earlier when the thread has had recent viewings. So I viewed it multiple times a while ago. It still does not appear in a site search of "fibromyalgia inflammation". I am frustrated, to say the least.

Can you help me with this? It is important to me.

That inflammation thread of mine (linked above) is on page 34 of the fibro boards (12/9/2015). It has 4464 hits.

The Pridgen Protocal thread, which was recently bumped and which is now on page 2 of the fibro boards has had 2417 hits in total. It appears on page 9 if I search for "fibro inflammation". It appears on page 7 of a search for "fibromyalgia inflammation".

I really can't answer your question. I did try putting "fibromyalgia inflammation rockon" in and quite a few things popped up...including the Pridgen Protocol thread. I do know the administrator is working on the forum and updating it so perhaps this is why you are having the problem. I'm wish I could be of more help.

Thank you Sherrine.

I removed a link to mypatientmatch in the section about getting info on trialing LDN, but that didn't fix it. Found another mypatientmatch link (because the section touched on inflammatory mediators being released from mast cells) and removed that link. That did not fix it.

I (and others) have linked to all kinds of fibro forum threads but apparently mypatientmatch, the tiny private little group, non-Google-able group (if one Googles: fibro forum) is verboten. I had of course realized I had been forbidden from linking to my mast cell "Reference" info thread on Healingwell.even in the allergy forum (whoa).

Still, my inflammation research thread does not turn up in my search.
* This * thread appears in page one of the search. Not surprising, tho, the way that searches usually work.
It's possible that an overnight refreshing of all info as currently edited is required tho. Very possible.
