Please! Thanks in advance.
I have found the best thing ever for FMS! It's not a cure, but it can reverse the process and keep it at bay. It is so simple it's amazing. It won't help w/ the pain right away, but gradually will remove the pain and actually stop the whole process. Once the process is stopped, there is no more pain, depression, any of that stuff. It just goes away! As long as you continue the treatment, and let me tell you, it's cheap at twice the price. Costs me about $25.00/month w/o a prescription. Can't beat that!
For pain during the treatment, I am using Aleve and it's working pretty well for me. My pain may not be as severe as that of your mother, but any pain med will work. Ditto sleep meds. I use Unisom, a very good over-the-counter sleeper. Another good one is benadryl. It just helps you get a good rest.
And lots of naps help, too. I nap like a cat!
For more information, you can google on "guaifeneisin" or just go right to http://www.fibromyalgiatreatment.com/EasyQuickLinks.htm
and start reading.
Order Dr. St Amand's two books from your local library and read them. Educate yourself and your mom. IMHO, this guai protocol is 'way above any other treatment you may have heard of. It actually works!
Good luck. Please let me know how it goes for you both. Drop a note in my journal, so I'll be sure to see it.
