    Thank you for this information. I’m now unable to walk now without incredible Fatique, pain in hips, upper legs and feet (like walking on pebbles). I also have been dx with severe Fibromyalgia, CFS and 2 buldging discs! Unsure of what to blame!

      Hi, I too have fibromyalgia and cfs and I’m on several meds. I’m curious what meds are working for you and what you do for the conditions. I try to explore what works for others that maybe I haven’t tried, my meds are not working for me and the pain is just horrible. Thx Tammy

    I am on adrenal fatigue pills with ashawanda, and other stuff plus u need to get the book “medical medium” . It has the cause of fibro, adrenal fatigue, lupus, ptsd, and others and what to do. U are very messed up with adrenal fatigue but it’s not recognized by drs. So your pretty much on ur own with diet and vitamins . Good luck

    The combination of Gralise and Nortryptoline has been the best treatment I’ve received for fibromyalgia!

    Has anyone Used Savella? I have been on it for 6 months. At first it was great but now the pain is creeping back in. The only problem was being so hot. I live in the south and was so hot I never went outside all summer. And the expense. Please tell me you experience with it.
