Quiz – How much do you know about Fibromyalgia?

Now this is taken from research and you might have different experiences.  But try this quiz here and see how you get on.  It’s a fun way of seeing what else is out there.

Maybe there is something in this list you have never tried.  I started a new supplement yesterday, I’ve started slow just one tablet twice a day, whilst I see if anything upsets my stomach, so far so good.  My new supplement contains ingredient in this list that has been proven to have positive effects on people with this condition.

Good news today is that my sore throat seems to have gone, which is good.  I always use first defence at the first sign of any germs, view here, it works every time I get germs, it just seems to stop them in their tracks.

I was asked to go painting today but that is not going to happen, far too achy for that.   My husbands new bike dumped brake fluid all over his bike last night and now he’s lost his back brake so we will be going back to the shop to get this sorted out.  This will give me a chance to practise on my new bike ­čĹî­čĆŹ

Bikes are now my passion as well as cars, we’ve had some nice sporty cars in the past before all these started and I could easily drive them.  Let’s hope we can back to that feeling again.

I was thinking the other day about Autumn and Winter, wondering how I’ll feel through both these times of year.  I haven’t enjoyed Spring or Summer as much as usual, I’ve found it a little too hot at times.  I think I’ll buy the biggest coat I can and bury myself inside it to keep nice and snug.  It’s usually nice and warm at work to be honest and thankfully it isn’t far home.

Trial patient for Fibromyalgia 

After the initial bad couple of years with trying different medications with this condition and feeling disgusted with just constantly being fed more pills.  I wanted to try to put this ‘situation’ to some good use.

There is not a cure for #fibromyalgia and as the nervous system and mind are so complex and every single person is different I doubt there we will be.  But what if a combination of holistic and medical treatments were available to improve our symptoms and more importantly quieten down the root cause; our ‘short circuiting’ nervous system and brain?

I spent an afternoon searching on the internet for clinical trials in the UK and came across this site here, you can search the medical condition and even an area of the UK and see what is available, sign up, contact people for more information or even just ask to be kept informed.  Brilliant I thought!!  Let’s get involved, I’m game. 

I was turned down for one as I had took Tramadol in the last 6 months and one had no funding to pay for my travel, but I was accepted for another.

I am just waiting for a date to travel over for the one day trial and they have offered to pay for me to travel and my time plus I can spend some time with a Fibro specialist to talk about anything I want.  Fantastic…..

I will keep you all posted, but why don’t you take a look at the site and see what you think?
