9 Tips to beat fibromyalgia and manage pain…

  1. YOU Beat fibromyalgia and don't let IT & the depression take over so…

    BEAT IT by taking your mind off of IT by exercising (the best way), watching TV or doing whatever you like that does not have you focused on IT all the time.

  2. Think positive. Don't think to yourself  "Exercise is too hard" and say to yourself…

    "Each day I exercise I get closer & closer to beating fibromyalgia"

  3. Use various supplements that relieve pain like Fish Oil, 5-HTP, SAM-e, St. John's Wort, B-Complex Vitamins, Echinacea, Black Cohosh, Milk Thistle, Magnesium, Ribose, Vitamin D and/or Brown Seaweed Extract
  4. Make sure you get 7-to-9 hours of sleep each night. See tips to help you sleep better
  5. Do stretches, Take yoga or tai-chi to help relive pain. Yoga nearly eliminated pain, fatigue & depression in fibromyalgia patients according to a study done at Oregon Health & Science University.
  6. Take water aerobics or exercise in a warm pool. The heat + exercise will help you manage pain by increasing blood flow.

Adrian, First off, I found your website and I am in love! Everything you have on here gives me hope. I am 40 years old, 5'6" and am currently at 195 pounds and the number slowly creeps up on me every year. I have fibromyalgia and a few other problems. I recently fractured my T10 in my spine a couple months ago and about a year before that I had to have a total reconstruction of my right (dominant) shoulder. It was extensive enough to where they couldn't re-attach my sub-scapularis muscle. I am now limited to where I have hardly any internal strength, cannot lift above my elbow or support my own body weight when doing pushup's. Now, just shortly ago I have been informed that I may need to have my other shoulder reconstructed. *sigh*
I am wanting to try soooo many things, but am incapable of some because of my limitations. I can't even swim without problems.
I am in need of good diet plan and a good set of alternatives that I could possibly do depending on my limitations.

Do you have other workouts that I could do for upper body that might be appropriate for my needs? ANY help would be fantastic!!!

Oh! And I used to be big into Yoga, but since I can't do a lot of the moves due to my shoulders... it depresses me! :'(

Actually yes, my doctor actually suggested that bikes are my best option. It truly sucks to be having issues like this. But! I WILL mention that I have lost 12 pounds since my last post just by watching my caloric intake thanks to you!

HELP! I finally got on the scales today and my weight has ballooned to 316. At 5'5" I am morbidly obese and need to get control of this before it kills me. I have fibromyalgia and take many medications to try to ease the pain. HELP PLEASE!

do you think this plan here is something you can do

Nancy, I have lost 65 pounds from eliminating processed foods, any refined sugars and Aspartame (which is in a lot of diet colas). The Aspartame actually flares up my Fibro noticeably. I have had to adjust my diet to mostly vegan. I have had a more energy and am able to exercise (on the good days). I hope this helps and I really wish you the very best of health!
