Re: how can i treatment the fibromealgea
Mo449, if the pain is everywhere and accompanied with a lot of fatigue, then getting some supplements can help -- water soluble magnesium is most important, also fish oil, folic acid, multi vitamins. If the pain is flaring up in just one area, then a massage therapist trained in trigger point therapy can usually help that one area. The pain can come as a flare up in just one area, a pain that is so bad you feel that part of your body must have cancer or something. Or it can feel like someone has poured cement in your body and your entire body fills up with pain (wind hurts, covers hurt, can't hold things, everything hurts) and that all-over pain usually comes with a lot of fatigue. There are medicines that can help, like Lyrica, but they come with a lot of side effects.
My best advice to you would to be to figure out what kind of pain -- in one area or all over. Find water soluble magnesium (like natural calm) and order it for your sister and get her on some of the supplements listed at the top of this FM site. Find a good physical or massage therapist that understands trigger point therapy and get your sister there if the pain is one area. Best wishes to your sister.
