Time will not tell if you continue doing both! I'd urge to make the changes individually, at least a month apart, to be able to tell if they do anything at all.

And the fact that bodybuilders use this proves yet again that they will put any untested crud into their bodies that they think might provide an edge - a practice which I actually somehow find fairly repugnant. Also, probably proving yet again that the placebro effect works. Also proving yet again that bb.com is the best scam going.

None of which should be read that you shouldn't take it for [ahem] fibro. Try it and see how it works.

I don't know if it was coincidence or not, but my ffibromyalgia flare disappeared the same time as when I started using ribose.

I have to admit, however, that about the same time, I started drinking kefir.

Time will tell if either of these was the cause of my pain lessening.

The move is DONE. A big goal met! But selling the "old" condo has been a rough ride. I am dealing with problems and have to be diligent about caring for myself. Hoping not eating gluten/sugar will help my mood, pain, energy level.
GOAL: Reduce A1C,BP,tryglicerides,and weight. HOW? Low carb plan with lots of veggies and water aerobics at least 3X week. I was doing this but moving stress has halted my good habits. Time to get this going again. I am worth it.

I shudda looked on WebMD! Why didn't I think of that. Ribose is 'just' sugar. It is hard for me to believe it could be bad for me. diabetics are not adversely effected by it from what I read. And I am not diabetic. Chris

I have no experience or knowledge of ribose. A look at WebMD confirms that it can be used as a treatment for fibromyalgia. It seems like it might be worth a shot. With any supplement, I would take the minimum effective dosage and go from there.

I am reading Titlebaum's (sp?) book From Fatigued to Fantastic about fibromyalgia. The first thing he recommends is using ribose. I know body builders take this for energy. It is a major player in the Krebs ATP energy cycle in the mitochondria.

Has anyone used ribose? Any thoughts about using it?

thanks, Chris
