  • Your acidic. Stop eating sugar or anyhing white like past, bread & rice. Buy whole wheat or whole grain. Fibermylasia is a build up of yeast in your body!! Do a cleanse and get in control of your body and get healthy from the inside first!!

  • Hello Ladies, I have nerve damage and I take a lot of pain meds. I DO NOT have RA or Fibromyagia but I do take Lyrica for pain which is a medication given to patients with RA/Fibro it works super so if you are stuggling with either of those debilitating diseases ask you docter about trying Lyrica. Good Luck!

  • ALTHOUGH LYRICA CAN BE A GOOD MEDICINE FOR FMS, NOT ALL OF US CAN TAKE IT. I AM ALLERGIC TO IT.
