A few weeks back I had posted that I wasn't well and I believed I was suffering from fibromyalgia. I made an appointment with this awesome and smart doctor and I was also treated by my favorite chiropractor and massage therapist. Since then, I have changed my diet and I am taking two herbal supplements; St. John's Wort and Kava-kava. I am also taking calcium and magnesium. I have been pain free for over five days now. I am able to resume yoga and garden again and walk. Woo-hoo! I have also learned what may trigger my pain and I am avoiding those triggers - no MSG for me. If I had gone to my regular doctor - she would have given me her "I don't believe fibromyalgia exists, but I can write you a pharmaceutical script." I don't care what this crippling pain is called I just want relief without harsh pain medication. I found comfort from a doctor who will treat my body, mind and spirit.
Now that I am forty, a recharge and a new doctor was exactly what I needed. Thank you all who have sent me well wishes and suggestions and a BIG thanks to Mary who introduced me to Dr. Fuller.
