I have had fibro for many years now.....worked for years and am now on disability at age 55. I fought for a long long time to keep working. I lost 120 pounds and hoped that the fibro would be better but it was not. I did feel better in that I was able to move easier...less knee pain....but the fibro pain was still there. I walk most days for exercise and plan to increase and incorporate some weight training soon.
Meds have been a joke...it is all trial and error with fibro. What helps one person may not help another. I'm of the mindset that if you can avoid them then do so. I am off everything now except for my pain meds. I am on a vitamin regimen and feel that does help some.
What helps me: Summer (warm weather) hot baths, heating pads, staying active, eating healthy, reducing stress(increased stress raises your pain level)
So sorry to hear that you have to deal with this awful condition. I'll be glad to help any way I can.
