I am a husband of a fibro sufferer who needds help. We have tried alot of different therapies but none seem to work. Was needing advise from other people on how they battles this horrible disease. My wife had to quit her job because of the fatigue and pain that she always feels. She has been put on Celexa and Xanex to battle the depression, and Lyrica, Ultram, muscle relaxors, and Elvil for her sleep. But none of these things have seemed to help. She even believe that the Lyrica is making her symptoms worse. I thought Lyrica would really do the trick for her, we had to fight our insurance to let her to use it. Heat seems to help her, we fill cloth sacks up with rice and heat them in the microwave and lay them on her back and neck and it seems to help a bit but only temporary. I have also read about a Gluten diet but am not sure about it. Does anyone else have anything that helps them. All i want is my wife to feel better, i cant feel what she feels but can only see that it is horrible for her, All I know to do is take her to the doctor, but she is so fed up with them. I have checked on accupuncturists also, we are desperate. Any advise would help so much. Thank you
