Where do they get their information about Fibromyalgia?

Don't you just love it when you read that your fibromyalgia can be cured with exercise, diet and relaxation? These articles must be written by people who do not have fibromyalgia or who had a mild dose, of something similar, for 3 months.
I especially love the websites that ask you to pay money to get the secret cure!
Sorry, enough of the sarcasm. The National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association (NFMCPA) states "While there is currently no cure for fibromyalgia, better ways to diagnose and treat the chronic pain disorder continue to be developed." Read more... Arthritis Australia says "Currently there is no cure for fibromyalgia. While there are ways you can control your symptoms, you should be wary of any products or treatments that claim to cure fibromyalgia." Read more...

Of course there are a variety of things that can help manage the symptoms of fibromyalgia from pain management to sleep management to Complementary therapies and supplements including acupuncture, massage, movement therapies such as yoga, and dietary supplements such as calcium, vitamin D.


  1. Yes, and with all of the research pointing to myofascial trigger points having more than a casual connection to FM, more like a comorbid condition, exercising should be avoided until the trigger points are treated. Is it any wonder that FM patients report having more pain when they exercise?

    I am intolerant to exercise, I am not lazy - it really hurts for 3 days after

  4. Lee, I love you. That is all.

  5. Include magnesium with those supplements & avoid aspartame, it is poison & can really aggravate FM.
