Managing fibromyalgia

I realize that I did not answer what CBD stands for. Cannabidoil is an extraction from a strain of Hemp plant that is very soothing to sore muscles and does not get one “high” at all. I have heard it is even being offered in main-stream body product stores, but I prefer to go to the “Pot” shop for it because I can be sure that they don’t use any harmful emulsifiers. Sometimes, I wish I could just bathe in it. It doesn’t have a smell, or a burn, it just stops the pain.
There are Fibromyalgia and Fatigue centers, but very expensive. It requires a lot of blood work. Many people who develop sudden onset of Fibro symptoms actually have Lyme disease. Most of us have “yuppie flu” that started showing up in the early 80s – I forget the clinical name for it, but it is related to chicken pox, works it way into your nervous system and is opportunistic when we become tired, eat badly, overstress, don’t sleep. Since most of us have a disrupted sleep pattern, it is hard to not be tired. I find that D-Ribose with magnesium malate can be very helpful.
Just beware, there is a lot of snake oil being sold as “cures”.
