    My daughter is having some pretty bad anxiety attacks and cfs symptoms. She was also dx with adhd as a teenager. I, her mom, have fms/cfs in a serious way. I know it runs in our family, even in the men. She is only 21 so any treatment from you younger fibros would be great. What are the treatments for adhd today? She hates the ones that make you tired and groggy. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks Sis

    Eliminating preservatives, artificial flavors, and artificial colors from her food may help. In fact, eliminating processed foods completely may help a lot. Also, a low carb diet may help. Kids need to get their carbs from fruit, veggies, and dairy (if they are not allergic to dairy).

    Diet alone has been used to treat this. Good luck.

    Love, Mikie

    ...between all three. My friend has her own website. I think it is add-fibromyalgia (you know the rest). Maybe you can find the site and it will help.
