I started using grated fresh ginger when cooking veggies, in the hopes of alleviating digestive problems. It has been helpful in this regard. I have been experiencing much more muscular fibromyalgic pain this past day, however. I understand ginger should reduce pain. Is it possible that in my case it might have added to the pain instead?Thanks.

Have no a lot of cash to buy a house? You should not worry, just because that's possible to receive the home loans to resolve such kind of problems. Therefore get a bank loan to buy everything you require.

Fibromyalgia is a condition of nerves that have been tramatized . This can often be even accidental. The Bvitamins are of vital importance to help the nervous system begin to heal. The adrenal system and immune system if hurt too.
Finding a way to heal these helps fight the Fibromyalgia symptoms. Nutrition and good things as mentioned in previous emails help, but no one seemed to deal with a sick nervous system. And the glands are all nvolved

I have been using Mucinex 12-hour for over 20 years now to control my fibro. It's not a cure but it allows me to live a normal life again.
