What suits me best is a homeopathic treatment and acupuncture sessions

Hiya I take a herbal tablet from Holland & Barrett called 'Devils Claw' twice a day and find this helps me, heat pads and if you have the finances a massage helps your blood circulation and your muscles feel a little more revived after it :)

I was going to try Devils Claw but after researching it I found it increases stomach acid. I already have enough problems with my tummy. Should not be used with Wafarin either

I found magnetic therapy really helped me and relieved some pain. Within 9 weeks I had reduced my pain medication, BY HALF ! I found it hard to believe as well. On top of having Fibro I under went spinal surgery 6 years ago, due to the base of my spine collapsing. As anyone that suffers Fibro, fibro attacks areas of weakness. So Fibro felt at home at the base of my spine, causing my back to get double whammie. I'm a firm believer that if there's something out there, if it's pills, patches, positive thinking or a pint of your favourite tipple, then go for it !! Fight Fibro, I'm not going to let it beat me.
Xxx. Good health to all "Fibro friends".

I too was going to try Devils Claw, but found out that a friend of mine was admitted to hospital after taking it. She had problems with her stomach which was due to taking Devils Claw.
I found Pregablin from my GP helped a lot. Good luck with whatever you try, but remember not everyone is the same, what works for one does not necessarily work for all.

I have recently been using aloe Vera heat lotion and this helps to relax my muscles when I'm in bed and first thing in the morning.

Valerian and Lemonbalm are great for relaxing and helping with sleep. I use them everyday.

I am a GP and I have over 50 patients with Fibromyalgia. I saw a 17-year old girl recently with really severe pain. Indeed the initial injury seemed to be relatively minor but the pain affects the whole body. I put her on lowdosenaltrexone which works very well for most cases. A few patients take Tramadol at bedtime too. You can see a film on LDN at www.lowdosenaltrexone.org and research at www.ldnscience.org
