My reply just disappeared. So if there are 2 of these-please forgive me as I feel like I am computer illiterate!
Fibromyalgia is a pain – literally. It's the invisible disease. People tend to say "you look fine". My orthopedic diagnosed me and said I responded to all the points. He did order a scan to rule out bone cancer-my mother died of that disease. He said "I have the worse case of fibro that he had ever seen". It is very painful- as you know. Because of AFIB, I can't take NSAIDs so I do yoga breathing. Stress will make it flare and the deep breathing helps reduce the stress. I take oral CBD as well as using a heating pad. My PC has suggested Tramadol but I would rather take the CBD. Mine has a little THC in it. I live in FL and am approved for medical marijuana. I was nervous when I started taking it . But my neurosurgeon said that you can't OD on CBD so I take it as needed. Please keep in touch. Take care. Joan
