To all of those people out there that has tried just about everything for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and has not had any good results, I may have someimportant information for you. I am a 33 year old male and I myself have not yet been diagnosed with Fibro or CFS, but my mother has and it is heriditary and I have more of the symptoms than she does. I have been fighting a severe chronic back pain which has turned out to be: *Spondylolithesis at L5/S1 *Degenerating Disc Disease *Slight herniated disc at L4/L5/S1 I have seen over 20 doctors in the past 6 years inwhich most of them has been seen in the past 2 1/2 years. I've been to Nuerosurgeons, Musclorskeletor Specialists, Sports Medicine, Been thru all types of Physical Therapy and Water Theropy, and 3 different Chiroprators etc. etc. etc. I have been a patient of a very good Pain Clinic at U.A.B. Hospital at Birmingham, AL and have been taking Methadone 10mg tabs from 2 a day to 3 a day severe chronic pain. Hydrocodone has no effect on me at all. 2 weeks ago I went to a Chiropractor that specializes in Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome with Massage, Vitamins and Minerals. Well 9 days ago I stopped taking my Methadone all together just to see how I felt, because all other times I had tried to stop, I always started hurting real bad about 3-4 days after stopping it, but this time I have not even missed taking the Methadone at all. I fell down Tuesday night and I was really hurting last night so I did have to take 2 Methadones to stop that, but that is the only reason. Everytime that I've stopped taking the Methadone before I also had some withdrawal pains also, but since I've been taking the Vitamins, I have not had one bit of withdrawal pain and I have slept good at night and had lots more energy during the day. I in no way trying to sell anything or am I affiliated with this doctor, but this doc has somehting here. He has written a very good book called Treating and Beaing Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He is a speaker and a bunch of other things. I would recommend everyone to at least check his Web Site out and read a little about him and see what you think. his address is: (edited to remove URL) I take: 2 packets of the Fibromyalgia/CFS Support Packs a day 4 DL-Pheine capsuls a day 3-4 of the 5HTP capsuls at bedtime. This is about 22 tablets and capsuls that I take, but all it is, is vitamins and minerals, no herbs and he also suggest that I drink 70oz of water a day, but I am doing good if I drink 1 glass a day. Some of these vitamins build up Seratonin, where the brain has cut down or sometimes stopped making the chemical Seratonin. Some help you to sleep, wash toxins from the body and help build your energy back up. All of this is Ephedra free and I have no side effects whatsoever. I hope that this can bring a little help to some of you that think that there is no hope. I use to feel that way, but now I can see light at the end of the tunnel. I am sure that I will still have to take my Methadone for the pain sometimes, but me going 8 days without it and no pain at all is unheard of around my house. Along with this, I have also kept my Faith in God and without that, I don't know where I would be.
