Hey Fibros! There is only one way out of fibro and it is very hard and it exasperates symptoms in the first 1-4 months but it's all we have. It's been healing us for almost 50 years now. But since everything is non-profit they post no ads, ever. So they leave it up to us patients to spread the word. "What You Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromylagia" Get the newest Ed. which as of Dec 2011 will be the one with the red band across the top and can be pre-ordered via Amazon. But in the mean time, you can get a cheap older version on Ebay or go to your library. It is a protocol including low carb diet and the magic cheap pill used commonly for snot, yes, I said it: snot. It's is called Guaifenisen. However you can only take one form of it which is the long-acting form. The patent is currently owned by Adams Labs and is Mucinex in the BLUE box. But do not ever try this or take this med without reading the book first, or you will get so sick you'll want to die for about 24 hours. Read the book first. PLEASE. I've been in total remission since 2007. I still take that med every day and am super happy to do so. I would be dead by my own hand had I not read that book. I laughed at it and attempted to prove how stupid it was by following the directions to the letter and oops, in month 4 I got my first great day, then yadda yadda month 9 and I was running 10 miles after being bedridden 2 years. There are 1000's of medical sites like this one and we patients, which number in the 100,000 do try to get a few sentence in everywhere we can. But the odds and the scammers are too much to battle with. And there are those who SAY they tried the Protocol, only to find out they never read the book, they didn't use the online chat room daily to talk with the nurses, they took the wrong guai, and just messed up and now think they are experts who feel the need to bash it. If you are sick of fibro, read the book, join the group, try this. It won't cost much at all. We often purchase the books for people for free as our way or "paying it forward" The Guaifenisen Protocol. It is the only door out. It sucks and it hurts, but it reverses the condition 2 months of Ugh feeling for every year you've been super sick. I got super fibro sick in 03, so I was sick 03, 04, 05, 06, 07. Started Guai in late 06 and was done in only 9 months, so the math worked perfect for me.
