I have suffered from a kind of brain- fog most of my life. I' m not sure if this is C F S or Fbin. However, I have discovered that menthol helps de congest it and this I do by putting Vics vapour rub under my nose. I have also found that ear drops and breathe right plasters help. With the use of ear drops I lie on my side and put a cotton wool ball in the ear with the drops in it, to stop it leaking. Steve
I am suffering from very severe pain since few days. I have been taking some procedures to maintain my health, hope these work.
As far as pain relief goes I have been taking Tramadol. I know its addictive believe me but its the only thing that gets me through the day. I am new to this site and so happy I found it due to all my symptoms that seem to be stemming from Fibro. I've been taking Trazadone since 2000 for sleep and really want to be able to find solutions to my issues.
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..
