Hi All

My husband purchased a medipen for me - it arrived on Thursday morning. I started using it immediately. I'm taking my usual meds, then an hour later, 3 or 4 " puffs" of the pen. 4 puffs again, after my afternoon meds, then the same at bedtime meds.
I absolutely cannot believe the difference it has made to my pain levels and stiffness. For the first time, in a very very long time ...

Dear friends, Has anyone tried this herbal product before? I was just so utterly desperate of living with such unrelenting excruciating pain all over my body particularly this week, especially with sharp pain in shoulders, mainly the right, and painful neck, that I am about to try taking Serrapeptose. I had read that it had supposed to have lessened the pain of someone with Fibro, so am now trying it. I am usually highly sensitive ...

I've had amitriptyline prescribed 10mg of a night. Prescribed 3 months ago when I was diagnosed. I promised the rhumatlogist I would try them. They still go unopened. I've had a few reactions to medications that have made me very unwell. I'm frightened to take them. I have severe fatigue. I can't see how they will help. Only make the fatigue worse is what I'm thinking. Any advice. Thanks.

Weight gain

Dear sufferers, Has anyone put on much weight through being disabled with fibromyalgia? I also have M.E. I was a size 14, but now I am size 18, and now finding those clothes are too tight. That is another thing with fibro. We cannot bear anything tight on our painful bodies, right? Just want easy, floppy, comfortable clothes. In fact, I live mostly in my night-clothes.

Any thoughts? sincerely, Roselil
