Help and advice

Hi all, looking for some help please.

I started with Fibro in 2011 and it was really bad at first but whilst always having pain after a year or so it was mostly confined to flare ups. Having severe weakness and fatigue I would fall to sleep literally everywhere, in the car, in the office, at home, literally everywhere. The only time I would get real sleep disturbances were during flare ups, otherwise always slept ...

Hemp oil

Dear friends, Has anyone tried Hemp oil, or Hemp capsules, for the pain of fibromyalgia? Just been reading about it, and for some, it appears to have worked to give some relief. My pain has been so severe for weeks now, I have wondered how I could carry on. Cannot lay, cannot sit for long without such pressure pain everywhere. Can hardly move at all. The latest flare-up has involved both knees with extreme groin ...

Fibro newbie

Hi all, apologies for what may be some dumb questions, but i have only recently been diagnosed with FM and i seem to have more questions than answers at the moment!
Q1. I seem to tick many of the 'ailments' boxes, but not all, especially when i read about the amount of pain that many of you suffer. I get a degree of aches and pains but nothing on the scale of others. I also ...

Sore head in bed

Hi, does anyone else find that the weight of their head on the pillow makes their scalp sore, or if laying on ones side then that ear is sore. I tried different pillows and recently bought an orthopaedic pillow but that actually made it worse, not sure what else to do as I cannot sleep sitting up :roll:

Pillow

Can anyone suggest a good pillow for fibromyalgia. I have it worst in my neck and shoulders and am struggling to find decent firm pillow. At moment using sealy posturepedic pillow but its losing its shape a bit. I have tried a lot and wasted a lot of money.

Could it be fibromyalgia?

Hi,
I am writing for some advice and suggestions from people's experience of fibromyalgia as I am wondering it I have it myself.
Nearly six years ago when I have my son my hands started aching and feeling stiff. I have been tested for arthritis and was told there is some sign of inflammation but I could get that when I'm on my period (useful). Anyway this has continued for six years nearly and now ...

Ankle and leg swellings and pain

Dear sufferers, For about 3 years now, I have suffered much ankle and leg swellings and just wonder if anyone else has the same. I have been disabled for some 30 years with Fibro and M.E. so it could be as a result of just being so disabled, but I had swelling of the hands and fingers a few years back and that turned out to be through fibromyalgia, according to the specialist I saw. ...
