    We have to find the problem. If the pain is ischemic pain, then no pain reliever will work.

    My M.D. also said that I was doing everything right, but I was getting more tired by the week. I finally went to a D.O. and we looked at viruses that cause Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The D.O. found EBV and CMV.

    I read your profile but found nothing that can help. Have you had a Hair Analysis? What makes your FM worse? what makes it better? What other symptoms do you have?

    Hi, Mainerose

    When I am at the worst of the worst pain . I rub my arms legs or what ever is hurting in mucsle rub and I wrap them in ace bandages I got like 8 of those thing's (most of the time it is my arms) They hurt so bad sometimes I can't hardly stand it and wrapping them up like that is the only relief I get. I use a cheap mucsle rub from the Dollar store I have tried the higher priced ones to find out the dollar tubes work just as well. My hands and fingers also hurt sooooooooooo bad I soak them in a sink full of hot water and that helps. I don't take any pain meds at this time, but I am seeing my Dr, this month to ask about perscribing me a Tens Machine. I read your profile we are the same age I LOVE to fish and I used to hunt years ago with my dad & husband & you and my sister have the same birthday, thought that was kind of neat. I hope this help's even alittle. Hoping you are feeling better soon. Suzyq44

    Ive used the supplement called SAMe for 6 years. It helps relieve pain, detoxifies liver & helps stabilize moods. My doctor recommended it.
