i was diagnosed with fbin 2010. I had symptoms since 2006 when i had a car accident. what worked a little for me was accupuncture for my muscle spasms. it took me 3 yrs to come out of that extreme condition. I was put on meds the first year, nothing helped so i stopped. the one thing that majorly helped me was my moms support. I didnt do any house work cook clean or laundry. I was not able to do anything, even my eyeballs hurt to look around or neck wouldnt allow me to even sign my name. i had no bladder control, i couldnt wash my face, ended up getting sciatica as well. my bones felt like they were not in their place. each time i moved my neck i felt like it was in pieces. no stability in my spine. always in muscle spasms all over. now I can compare myself without meds and thank God I can breath. I am not all well but I am living. those 3-4 yrs were as if i was carrying a dead body yet i could walk. So hang in tight guys. if you have it then try your best to come out of it. i am hopeful because i have recovered without meds. I do take homeopathic stuff but that helped my sciatica and osteoarthritis issue. nothing will cure fibromyalgia. unless if you change your diet and exercise regularly. swimming yoga etc.

I just signed up today. My body is under alot of pain. I also have asthma, celiac, and Gerd so I am unable to take a variety of medications, etc. I currently use my heating pad and am eating mostly fruits, vegetables and grains. I walk on the treadmill everyday. My question is why does it seem like I am under alot of pain, more now since Ive been diagnosed? I also have rumatoid arthritis..

I'm new today and been in pain so long, I don't remember a time without it. Today I have been reading about Sam-e, so I'm going to give it a try this weekend. Plus I've been learning to meditate and so far, it's at least been helping me to sleep better at night! My problem is the additional pain and numbness of spinal stenosis and proof of a seriously dislodged disk in the lumbar spine. I need to address both issues while I wait for the SSA to have some mercy and approve my claim. Whatever we do, we must stay positive and upbeat as that's our only hope for improvement!
