I'm definitely not going through the change (body Can attest to that). I too goo from too cold to too hot, have done for a long time didn't realise it was part of FM though. I use black cohosh personally. I have one 'tablet' when I go to bed. no nasty side effects that I've noticed. My boyfriends neighbour swears by it as a help to the immune system. Can't say much more than that I'm afraid. Sorry

I would like to share with you the most ridiculous statement i have yet to hear from a 'professional,' "i see here you have Fibromyalgia, so apart from that how is your general health?" this from an Orthopaedic consultant, my reply hopefully may have made him stop and think before he puts his foot in his mouth again, "i no longer have 'general health' and my Fibromyalgia is crap. After a few more altercations i think he rather enjoyed putting the steroid injection into my elbow. What a stupid no not stupid, ignorant man!! Rant over, now off to meet mental health wonder how i'll get on there lol. Happy wednesday 

Today was the third time in a week that the therapist has cancelled on me so seriously considering just giving up on it. The effort and pain it takes to get there to be sent away, at least the other two times I got a call, is just too much. When you're feeling low as it is and then you get that it just makes it not worth the effort. It reminds me that 'professionals' are human too!!! Fed up.com xxm

I think because I'm not having to pay for it she's not as committed as she would be if she was getting paid. Really not sure what to do. Thanks for responding xxm
