I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a few years ago quite a few. I did have a remission for a bit other then in the worst part of summer where the weather in our part of the world would change a lot and the humidity was way over the top.
A few months ago I started with the aches and pains in every joint and my muscles going into spasms heaps more then normal and severe tiredness. I went back to dr's and got told what I already guessed that the fibro was back.
Now in Australia they treat it with anti depressants. I am on Cipramil and yes it has eased a little but not the tiredness nothiing seems to make that go away. Up till about 5yr ago I would rarely dream of having a daytime sleep now I can hardly get thru a day without one and if I do am wiped out for days trying to recover.
I use Glucosomate and Fishoil for the arthritis as the usual anti inflamatories upset my stomach with reflux and burning way more then they give me relief. I use Valium 5mg only at night most of the time now for the muscle cramping but that doesn't help with the bad days when I have a virtually permanent cramp in the calf muscles and the feet. I have given up on dr's yet keep going back hoping they might give me something new to help.
Please does anyone have any knowledge of natural or prescription drugs available in Queensland Australia that might help.
