Hello. I am new here. I'm just trying to find my people. I'm kind of scared... A little cautious. But, I am an open book and treasure honest feedback. Thank you for being here. I am a mother of four biologically and care for a few more. I'm married since 2012 and have a lot of support from my immediate family. I have very few friends, though, because I am very bad at humaning. My question is, even though I feel like I've done multiple years' worth of research, I've learned almost nothing about how to ease fibromyalgia naturally. It's always the same. Take these pills.... Is there anything else out there?

      I've had fibromyalgia for 20 years. Get a heating blanket. It will be your best friend. If you feel too warm, get a fan and put it in your room. While it warms your achy bones, you might want a breeze across your face. Also, the one prescription I can't live without is my muscle relaxer. It's the two things that I will never go without. I don't know where you live, but sitting in the sunlight and letting the sun sink into your bones will not only feel good, but it will feel like it's healing.

      It's not a cure all but I suffer from fibro and really bad insomnia and my fiance bought me a great mattress and a fully adjustable frame and it has been the biggest help along with Epsom salt. I've had fibro for years and meds have never worked for me. But on Cymbalta for mental health for years and last year working wity phycologist we've increased the cymbalta and after a few months I did notice a difference in the intensity of some symptoms. Good luck 💜

      Stretching and walking were the biggest things for me, outside of meds. That and my now husband made sure I have had a foam mattress topper and a knee pillow for sleeping since I first started to get fibro symptoms.

      Welcome Nicole🤗 for me it helps to keep my body warm- it could be by working out regularly, doing yoga and walking, using heating pads on the areas that hurts and wearing hot clothes when it's cold outside.

      Hey Nicole. I just joined today but I also have children.. 5 of them to be exact and it’s the same for me. It’s always take these pills 😞😞 I use heat and cold compress but for the most part heat. Doesn’t really do much but feel warm. The pain is still there. I’m also doing stretches! The stretches help a little. 💕

      Hey Nicole, welcome! You’ll find a really large and supportive community in here 🤗 In case of fibro, what helped me more than every med, and also helped to other women as I understood, was exercising. It made a big difference for me
