I have been recently diagnosed with fibromalgia and have now been referred back to the GP for medication and physiotherapy. I am currently doing yoga for an hour each day with both breathing techniques and stretching. I also walk daily for about an hour and have always been an active person. I am currently looking for a more natural holistic approach to helping my illness as I don't believe in taking pills! I also understand that each approach will affect a person in a different way! What is so difficult to comprehend is how an illness with an array of symptoms can have an impact upon your whole life! From your mind, body to your complete functioning and you are left battling each day as there is no complete cure! What I am confused about is where to go from here! And what route to explore through trial and error!
