Anyone get relief from muscle pain using Ribose? I have nerve damage and very painful muscles. My Doc, who dislikes Pharma as much as I do, has an FM patient doing well on Ribose and a gluten free diet. I also have FM, and eat anti-oxidant foods. Soon I will have to deal with this muscle pain though. The advantage to going off the Pharma was going from a size 18 to size 10. The muscle pain is creeping back.
