I fell prey to Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain during the summer of 2001. I knew that the most common method of treating the symptoms of FMS and CMP was to prescribe anti-depressants (to aid sleep) and pain-killers. I wanted to avoid that sort of drug use and the attendant side-effects. Most of the therapies readily available addressed symptoms (and that rather clumsily), but promised no cure. This (plus a very restricted cash flow) forced me to dive into research and find a therapy for myself. I researched my way out of both FS and CMP in a short 3 years. For those of you who have suffered far longer than that, you know that’s a feat. I’ve continued to research, as my family is highly susceptible to auto-immune problems. I’m not a medical professional, so I can’t diagnose or treat, but maybe this record of my journey and what my research has taught me, will be of benefit to you.
