I have fibro also, and the main thing that’s helped me is exercise.  Sometimes I hurt so bad that I feel like I don’t want to work out, but when I push myself to do it, I always feel better afterwards.  Yoga and pilates are also very good because of the stretching.

Do you take any medications?  I found that Aleve is the only OTC pain reliever that works well.    Caffeine also seems to help, but you just have to be careful to not overdo it.

I don’t have fibro, but a treatable disorder that mimics symptoms. I know what you’re going through and it’s always a good idea to have a support system for when symptoms put you on edge. 

Check out groupon– there are always massage deals floating around, and sometimes accupuncture, if you’re into that kind of thing. 

Keep up the physical activity, most definitely. It might be the last thing you want to do when you’re feeling bad, but the endorphins do wonders afterwards.
