      Hello Anj Sorry your career has come to this. Please explore the various links on the right of the page for further advice and if I can help please ask away. No-one, including us, has perfect answers to fibromyalgia but it can be managed well enough in most cases.

      Hi Linda, has your doctor offered a treatment plan at all? Often when it comes to fibromyalgia a multi-disciplinary approach can be best, so changes to diet, lifestyle plus the use of herbal and conventional remedies can all come in useful when used in combination. Feel free to have a browse of our webpages – there’s lots of useful there and then just ask if you have any questions.
