I have several friends with fibromyalgia and this will be wonderful news. It's only been a few years since doctors would actually admit that there really was such a disease because the symptoms are so erratic. One thing I read about last month is that recent studies are showing that people with FM should stay away from flourescent lights, expecially the new compact flourescents, because that will aggravate the condition. That's also bad for people with Lupus.

Yeah, that's what they said about Lyrica. That stuff put me into a total drunken stupor so bad I couldn't even write let alone talk or drive. I'm not trying anymore prescription meds. I'm happy with the ones I'm on and the supplements. Have you tried Magnesium with Malic Acid (known here as Mag-Citrate)? It's great for pain.
