    • Hi Bambi,
      I too have fibromyalgia though not the medical interventions that you have had , I also think that most meds don’t work, and we all have to find our own ways, aids etc. to manage our conditions. Good luck with the imported meds and the horse riding. I am having a flare-up which I am blaming on the damp weather

    • I have found glucosamine works very well! Taken twice a day. Very good for joints. You may also try joint juice. Which is a liquid form… Takes about a month to notice results.
