Aerobic exercise, such as low-impact stepping, cycling or swimming several times each week, also is considered an essential part of treatment. Finally, improved sleep quality may improve symptoms, so it may help to avoid caffeine, exercise late in the day and fluids late in the evening. If your symptoms do not improve, your doctor also may suggest that you try one or more of the following therapies: acupuncture, massage therapy, warm compresses, biofeedback, hypnosis, group therapy or stress management. If you have symptoms of depression or anxiety, these may improve with psychotherapy and antidepressant or antianxiety medication.
Normally doctors would prescribe a muscle relaxer, antidepressant and tylenol. You need a new doctor and tell them that you are on sparkpeople and are working on losing weight in a healthy way and have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. They will be able to give you more help. Ask questions, lots of questions that is what they are getting paid for.

And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."
