I joined this forum just a few days ago, after finding some useful info. So now I wanted to ask if there's anyone with experiences of fibromyalgia.
I was diagnosed around 4 years ago, and have sinced improved immensely. At that time, walking and yoga was about the only thing I could do, physically, because of absolutely constant pain worsening with exercise. Now I even practice capoeira and have little to no pain most fo the time. It's been something of trial and error, most of it error.. but slowly, it's gone the right way, with extreme caution in exercise, eating well and finding medication that works.
But I still have very little stamina, in spite of all the exercise, and in a week or two without it, I lose what little I have. I also suffer from a lot of fatigue. I take creatine, and have started with DHA/EPA, in addition to regulars like calcium and magnesium. Also got a hyperexpensive medication prescribed (modafinil), which I won't be able to take in the long run. And would prefer to skip it by now, to be honest.
Does anyone have any experiences or suggestions to share? I have read the usual guidelines for fibro a million times and know them by heart, so it's not basic info on the syndrome I need, but personal experience of fibro, veganism and exercise/fitness. Would be greatly appreciated
