    Does anyone know about ATP? My new doctor told me this could be the reason for my fibro. She is talking about some kind of injections...help.

    ATP is used to provide energy for the body, Nerve electricity, and muscle movement.
    Muscles use ( ATP Adenosine Triphosphate for there immediate energy source.
    I dont know alot about it , just printed out a fact sheet on how the muscles work. Becuase of my leg weakness and muscle problems i am going to find out more about it at my next Drs visit.
    I would certainly like to know my levels.
    I am sure she will see if your body levels are low before she starts any kind of treatment.
    Its also good to have your Lactic acid and Creatine levels checked.

    Is your doctor Patricia Salvato in Houston? She began treating me with glutathione and ATP injections for 12 weeks. We then switched to oral ATP supplementation. This has helped decrease my fatigue, but so far hasn't improved my pain levels.
