I know others on here get these symptoms. I guess they call them fibromyalgia symptoms. Anyway, what helps you with them?

Has Lyrica helped anyone? Im supposed to start milk thistle this week too since my provider thinks my liver is clogged and could be causing the extremity pain.

I just want a little relief!

I've had this since on Mepron. It's been terrible and making me in a real bad mood. I'm seriously wondering if this drug is worth the hassle. [Frown] No gains, just pain.

I'm going to see just how convinced my LLMD is of his Babesia Dx at the next appointment.

I have found nothing to make it lessen. I'll be watching this thread with great interest. I wish you luck.

i have horrible muscle pain and can't stand to be touched.

nothing, including all the antibiotics, has touched this.

it's especially bad in the shoulder and down towards the elbows.

Hi, I take neurontin for nerve pain, and also darvocet. I know alot of people do not like narcotics, but of all of them this is the mildest. It is tylenol based and I break them in half sometimes. I know how bad the pain is, I truly do.

Hey Nal...

I smile to see you but am sorry for your pain.

I don't seem to be "seeing" what the others are in your description.. so I may be all wet here.. but I am trying.

What I've noted for years is that this type of pain is often associated with babesia.

But then again.. I may not be understanding this post.

Other causes and suggestions...

1. Magnesium may help if it is a cramping type of pain. BUT...

2. If that makes it worse (like me and some others I've seen)... stop it for a few days to clear it out of your system and then try Coral Calcium for a couple of weeks at least.

I use calcium at night because it relaxes the muscles... and me in the process... and helps me sleep (like a glass of warm milk at bedtime). This-BTW- is what gives me the best relief from that pain.. other than treating Babs.

I am going to stop here in the event I am on the wrong track.

Hope something helps.

[Big Grin]

yeah i get the same reaction with magnesium. I just don't understand the chills. Why am I getting those?? I just feel like im coming down with the "flu" but I know I am not. Does that make sense at all??

I just want some relief

Lots of pain is from toxins your body can not get out. Adding more drugs produces more toxins.

Search Far Infrared Sauna here and see what people say. I have been very impressed.

Nal there are places you can pay to use them. Used to go to one that sold packages - 20 for $150, so $7.50 per visit. Barter or trade if they will.

FIS is best IMO.
