i too have had fibro for years. also have osteoarthritis in my neck and low back. i was in bad shape for years. 2 years ago i started to do research and found that taking vitamins (good vitamins) and a b-complex everyday along with b-12 shots monthly really helps. i also take traxodone at night and flexeril to sleep. i try to go to bed every night at the same time and get up every morning at the same time. this is crucial. i try to watch my sweets, pop and coffee intake. low and behold i'm virtually symptom free. for the osteoarthritis i take glucosomine/chondroitin which helps wonderfully. good luck to you all out there. e.
