Colleen, I only attended the week in jan2012. The exercises, medication, and Walking up to 3 miles 4 to 5 times a week My biggest problem is my arthritis. The biofeedback session at Mayo is utilized when the pain inhibits ADLs. I think the biggest problem fibromyalgia presents is depression. I make a conscientious effort to get up and get going. Also, it is important to take a short nap at least a few times each week. Meditation is difficult for me but I can see how it could help. I would love to get back to Rochester for a basic check up. I truly trust the doctors there.EMR, nashville

I attended the Fibromyalgia Clinic in Rochester in January 2012 and it changed my life for the better. It was a full five day week of various tests and information. There was honesty, sharing of information, and sincere compassion.
I had to increase the medication after six months but my rheumatologist is monitoring my condition.
She was pleased with the report from the clinic and the information about the new medication. I had been on Lyrica……bad bad medication. The change to Savella saved me. I think the Mayo Clinic is the place for all who have been diagnosed or think they have Fibro. You will not be sorry.

Sep 10, 2013 · Horrible leg pain with fibromyalgia in Chronic Pain

Try a daily walking program . Start slow and build up speed and miles. That has helped me lose weight along with cutting down portion size.
I have just developed severe pain in one knee. Waiting to hear from doctor re: procedures to follow such as PT or x-ray. I hope all these other pains are just part of the Fibro. Rather have that than a more serious condition. Keep on keeping on!
