I am in so much pain right now – all over. I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. I’ve been feeling really junky for the last week or so. I’m exhausted and extremely achy. Today is the worst. My feet, hands, and shoulders are the worst.
Does anyone have any treatments or things that could help give me some relief in the meantime?
I’ve been using heating pads and Ibuprofen. I’ve been lightly exercising all week. Nothing is really giving me relief.

I don’t have any treatments but that sucks! I have a chronic pain condition too and the only thing that really works is rest and exercise. Medicine doesn’t do much for me sadly.

Never had experience with it myself, but I’ve read a couple articles when I was doing some researching on Vitamin D and they suggest that Vitamin D (more than the RDA of 400 IU, which many scientists and nutritionists today are saying is a far too low RDA and the minimum should be at least 1000-2000 IU) can help improve and possibly eliminate fibromyalgia symptoms. Can’t hurt to try, it’s not like too much Vitamin A which will cause toxicity, it takes A LOT of vitamin D to go beyond safe limits, into the 10s of thousands ranges.

Bump for more suggestions!
@abbyful:Thanks, I think I’ll try the Vit. D!
