Fibro relief

At this point, I no longer have fibromyalgia symptoms and haven't for a while.
I attribute that to... well, not any one thing because I'm usually doing more than one thing to improve my heath, and it usually takes more than one thing to do just that.
In my case, I (finally!) gave up diet soda and anything else with nutrasweet in it, and went on a gluten free diet, both about 2 years ago. Since then I also resumed acupuncture, have done chi gung, sometimes more consistently than others, and I walk 30-50 minutes a day, 6 days a week.
I haven't had symptoms in a long time, aside from unrelated tendinitis in my right shoulder. That i am dealing with via physical therapy.
However, a friend of mine just got diagnosed with fibro so I was giving her some advice and was looking for some links on the web so she could do a little reading, and I found this great site with lots of good info all in one place. So I figured hey I'll share with on my blog. Not uncommon for people with lupus to also suffer from fibro. Here ya go:

One last note- If i want my fibro to recur, all I have to do is go jogging. Why, I don't know, but that is my experience.

Well wishes!
