I suffer with extreme fibro pain. Have had fibromyalgia for years.  Quality of my life sucks. My entire body burns and aches. I hardly sleep. I'm not a very nice person to be around most of the time. The pain has consumed me. I have days when I cant get out of bed until I take a pain pill and let it take effect. I also feel like my fibro is causing other health problems.  I need help and cant seem to get anyone to get serious about my condition, like it's just to much trouble. What can I do to get relief from my pain.
So far, three drugs approved by the FDA to treat fibromyalgia are Lyrica (Prebalin), Cymbalta (Duloxetine), and Savella (Minapalone). Natural and alternative therapies can also be used to alleviate symptoms, including lifestyle changes and moderate exercise. Adjust mentality. Rehabilitation exercise. Change your bad posture. This is really very important, very important, very important. Nutritional supplements are also an important way to alleviate symptoms. Although there are no rigorous double-blind placebo-controlled clinical trials of supplements, they have certain benefits in alleviating symptoms. Some commonly used nutritional supplements abroad are listed.
1. Relieving fatigue: L-carnitine, coenzyme Q10, D-ribose, magnesium malate, NADH, adenosylmethionine (SAM-e) and vitamin B12
2. Relieving pain and tenderness: Magnesium malate, vitamin D, Omega-3 (fish oil), and other supplements that help balance neurotransmitters also help alleviate the pain of fibromyalgia, such as 5-hydroxytryptophan, rhodiola, St. John's grass, adenosylmethionine, theanine, etc.
