The Faces of Fibromyalgia

  1. Excellent video, since it reproduces the pain of fibromyalgia, but the disease is controlled by painkillers like Vicodin is prescribed by doctors for their effectiveness and low prescription though, is one of the most abused medicines in the United States although listed in this medication findrxonline can be harmful because of side effects.

  2. Looking good!! Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your thoughtful comments. I appreciate it! Hope you have a great day. It finally is cool enough here to actually enjoy the outdoors...unfortunately, my husband's allergies are acting up from the wind blowing around all the dust and pollens. Go figure! It's nice out and my poor husband STILL can't go out!

    God bless!

  3. Lily, I have not taken a narcotic since being diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. For me what is most effective is the Lyrica which I believe actually works at the root of the problem, being the overactive synapses. Some of my pain is managed by Cymbalta which is most commonly used as an antidepressant. But, there's not a narcotic in my house. Multiple doctors have amazed at how well I do. Yes, I have my bad days and there are times when I consider asking for a narcotic, but I have chosen other avenues of pain management and for me so far everything is working out okay. I hope that you will also find other ways of pain management. For me, chiropractic care, hot tub, water aerobics, aromatherapy, beginner pilates. These are things that have helped me so far.
