I have it, and I'm having one heck of a time right now! I'm at the point of the day where there isn't much I can do, everything is hard. I need some support sent my way!

My Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome has gone into remission with my clean eating.
I removed anything ‘mad-man-made’. I do not eat foods or meds with anything-artificial sweeteners or corn or dextrose.
I avoid added colors and artificial flavors, and Natural Flavors (brand name of patented garbage).
Like a good Gluten-Free eater, I refrain from consuming all these grains: wheat, rye, barley, oat, and corn.
In choosing medicines and foods, I will not take in anything with cellulose in it or on it since the cellulose source is not spelled out in the label, and most are made from these grains listed.
My other major Fibromyalgia pain prevention is to stay away from anything sulfite (an unknown not listed on labels pain issue for me).
And I have learned from years of trial and error to ensure I never get anything derived from a yeast ( my incontradiction though is I can have some baking yeast for my breads but never highly processed forms.).

Thanks for asking!

I have taken thyroid meds for hypothyroid since I was 13 years old. It was not until my deep pain and multi-symptom ailments disrupted proper wound healing and absenteeism at work were affirmed by a naturopath/nutritionist did the true story of Wilson’s syndrome play out (of not converting the thyroid hormone of T4 into T3) and the many painful symptoms did I get proper care. Thanks to Doctor Rodger Murphree and his book treating and beating Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
My Endo prescribed Cytomel, which was too painful. So now I take GTA from twice a day (porcine/pig hormone) offered by my other type of medicine doctor. My problems are not gone but I am on the path of sleeping better and feeling better and understanding HOW and WHY. Some of my results are demonstrated in a better outlook.

The greatest love story is your own.
If you miss out of life to the fullest; they win.
You are the happiness master of your own mind.
Thought is an active dynamic energy to harmonize and corrolate good.
Clear all paths to love thru forgiveness.
I may not recognize the significance until some time later.
Is my resistance to change really that strong?
Impatience does not provide the time to learn the lesson;
Awaken new ways to approach the dissolving of a problem;

TESS - My sis has complained of back pain and thought it was arthritis since it runs in our family. She also got relief from new thyroid meds recently started.

IVORY - I looked at the book on amazon; read the first three or so positive reviews, and a couple of unsatisfied reviews. There are many more positive reviews, so thank you for sharing this interesting premise with us. I do believe the mind can alter our body; specifically thinking of Bernie Siegel's work with laughter and cancer.

This may not work for everyone, but I nailed most of my problems by reading a book called the Mindbody Prescription by John Sarno, just borrow it from the library and see what you think (that's what I did). I am now 1.5 years mostly pain-free after being diagnosed in 2003 (but with pain for years before that). I do continue to take a tricyclic antidepressant for sleep disturbances. I ran my first 5k in December! I would prefer to take any other questions about the book by sparkmail.

If you have fibromyalgia, please share what therapies have helped. I have been plagued with stubborn leg pain for years (exaccerbated by exercise; which this last year I decided to not even try any more).

I think I've rid myself of it, but it's too new in the game to say for sure. I was hoping we could share information?
