Typingterror, this is very interesting, as I posted just last night as to what I thought was provoking my Fibro. After reading your post, I did a brief research on the link between magnesium and Fibro. It has been said that stress plays a very big role in diminishing the levels of magnesium and also malic acid in the body. Seeing as how my Fibro began during a very stressful time in my life and me being high-strung by nature, it is worth following up on. This, in combination with the approach I am willing to take to tackle my Fibro (massage therapy and water aerobics) could possibly help; But I assume I could also benefit through some sort of stress management as well, since that is what I believe to be the core root of my Fibro. Looks as though if this is the "cure" for my Fibro, I am going to be a very busy person just dealing with trying to keep it under control! I am in Alabama and am only a hop, skip and jump from B'ham, so I may check into the Dr. you mentioned. Also, there was a recent article in the newspaper here on the benefit of eating cherries. One guy eats about three jars over a period of a month and he claims it has helped with his pain. I wonder if the deficiency Dr. Murphree spoke of can be found in cherries?
