    Vitamin D******for any and all who read this.....speak to your doctor about getting your Vitamin D level checked.   So important for lots of people these days and especially those who have chronic illnesses.....also one should try taking Magnesium Malate (found at vitamin stores)....I have figured out just what vitamins and supplements will help me control my pain along with other *tools and tips*....a heating pad, drinking plenty of water every day.....getting enough sleep and keeping my stress levels as low as possible, to name a few.   It does take a trial and error process to find what really might work for you....so hang in there and learn all you can about what others have found that has made a difference for them.   You never know until you try things.

      .. I agree with you.. I take Vit D  and Magnesium every day and it helps me....
      I suffer anxiety attacks as well as Fibro....  and I'm on Anafranil for this...this medication combination helps me .. the less stress the less pain. I do heat treatments and stretches and low impact exercise... gentle massage and positive Self Talk....  I find it all helps.   I have skin sensitivity as well.. what to some people is a 'touch' on the skin to me is Painful... I was told about 40 years ago I had Myofacial Dysfunctional Syndrome..  at least that gave me a name to call it and people respected that I was not pretending I was sore and in pain.  Have had Sciatica, Fibrositis and other 'pain' conditions ... I'm so glad Fibromyalgia is getting the research and recognition needed to help the people suffering with it.   The only pain medication I use is paracetamol and this as little as possible. I talk to my body/pain and tell it that I know it hurts and I will take some pain meds later.. I give the painful area 'permission' to hurt with the promise of relief to come.... AND the pain usually eases and the paracetamol isn't needed....
      Self talk and 'chatting' to my body helps me....
      I hope this is helpful to others......
      not everything works for everybody....  
      Be kind to yourself....  xxxxx   Hugs .. Barb  xxx
