Treatments That Helped

Lifestyle changes including leaving her full-time job as a TV news producer. The drop in stress helped right away. She also learned to simplify, ration my energy, and say no.

Words of Advice
I hope you understand that no treatment regimen works for all of us -- each case is unique, and it takes a lot of trial and error to find the right combination of treatments. However, the more we share information the better armed we are to fight back against fibromyalgia.
"It was a long, twisty road full of obstacles and set backs but I haven't had a true fibromyalgia flare-up since 2010, in spite of multiple possible triggering events including emotional trauma, surgeries, and a nasty case of the flu."
