Hi, my name is Yvonne, I'm 41 years old and I too have fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed earlier this year after breaking my ribs in a skiing accident the previous year. I take 10mg of amytriptiline every night which helps with the morning spasms but find it is becoming less and less effective. I don't really want to double the dose but have on a couple of bad occasions. I wondered if anybody had any ideas or advice on whether diet plays a part (if red wine and chocolate do, then i'm jumping of the bridge!!) or if they found any supplements or alternative therapies worked. I've tried accupunture and after my first treatment I slept like a log. This was unfortunately a one off. I have also tried a mineral drink supplement called Recuperation which i bought off the internet. It has been invented by a guy who claims to have cured himself of fibromyalgia. Do you think you can get rid of fibromyalgia? I went to a local support group but didn't go back. I'm afraid seeing about 70% of the people there with walking aids or arm splints of some description didn't do much for my spirits. The thing I.m thinking about at the moment is getting a tempura mattress that moulds to your body shape. They are very expensive and I would appreciate if anybody has tried one, good or bad. Does anybody else find that when they are having a bad period that their body temperature seems to go haywire?. I find i am so hot and my back in particular seems to radiate heat. Sorry for seeming to do nothing but moan, but working full time and having two kids that seem to be forever needing lifts to places, really tires me out. I just feel if i could get a good night sleep and wake up one morning pain free and not getting out of bed like i'm 90, would be so great. It seems so long ago that I actually woke up feeling refreshed and not in pain. Well I hope some of you fellow sufferers can offer me some advice or just moan along with me to keep me company. Thanks for listening Yvonne.
