Default Good times, bad times.

I have days when I feel like the medication and diet changes are really helping and I feel pretty good for a day or two. Then I wake up feeling awful again. Is this normal with fibro?

I don't what is normal with Fibro, as I don't even know if Fibro is a real thing. Could be your medications are doing a bad job on your body. Just about every pharma drug comes with side effects, except in my life the only SAFE non side effect medication I trust is my Naturthyroid pharma script medication. Even the BP meds I take cause some side effects, mainly fatigue issues.

I had the same issues before I was on any pharma meds. I have been working with a naturopath. I plan to try some grape seed extract that I see you have recommended. I have been using curcumin with black pepper extract.

Good, changes may need to be in order.

I have something like Fibro, this last couple of years weather changes like barometric lows, and lately even the full moon has been messing with my sleep/aches & pains..... I suppose both can affect the fluids in our body..

Yes, that can all effect fibromyalgia. I personally haven't found anything
but faith that I can live with mine to help it. I tried the different things
that were given in pills, many years ago. I can't remember what.

I didn't find a difference, and I was having problems keeping up with
my children's meds and needed to concentrate on them. So I decided
to drop the things I was trying. I had lots of other issues of my own,
and concentrated on some of them instead. And at that point I got
lucky I was put on gabapentin for pain in my muscles I believe it
was its been over 5 years since I've taken it. Because we lost our
medical insurance and its one of the medications I had to lose. And
I changed a couple to cheaper ones. But the gabapentin I never added
back.

I have my bad days but I've learned to just work through them and
since I work from home right now. I can do that.
