I've been reading so much about treatments for these dds, and there are so many options, I don't know where to start! I currently have: chronic myofascial pain for 15 years (very severe at present) migraines (usually triggered by the neck pain/spasms) tmj (probably related to all this -- had it forever) nerve symptoms in my hands and arms (cervical mri and nerve tests normal-- had these on and off for years) Raynaud's phenomenon hot skin patches/hot flashes that come and go IBS that comes and goes occasional bladder irritation (with no infection) I also had mono as a teenager. I don't currently have any cognitive or sensory problems (except with migraine) and no mood problems except occasional anxiety/panic. I have a history of severe depression and also the sensory overload stuff/cogitive fog -- that went away some years ago and thankfully remains gone. No problems with chemical sensitivity or allergies, either, at least at present. I currently take: Effexor 225 mgs/day (for pain, supposedly) Vicodin as needed for pain I see a chiropractor who does soft tissue/trigger point work -- that helps some, but not enough. I stretch and try to pace myself. I was seeing an internist/diagnostician who keeps looking for mechanical causes, but I think he is barking up the wrong, expensive tree --- I'm pretty sure this is fibro, looking over my history. My question? I need to know where to start with healing. I'm willing to adjust my diet and lifestyle, take supplements, what have you -- the guaifenisen protocol sounds interesting, too -- but there is so much information I don't even know where to begin. Anyone with similar issues want to share their fibro 101 treatment protocol with me?
