Natural pain relief? - February 11th 2019, 10:41 PM

So my fibromyalgia has really been acting up. I currently take medicine for it. What I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on ways to relieve the pain? I know exercising is one of them my doctor told me, but I have a really hard time doing that. I don't like taking aleve or advil or anything like that unless I have to, and when I do it usually doesn't help any way. I have an appointment scheduled Wednesday and I plan on talking to my doctor then, but I was wondering if anyone here had their own tips as to how to get over the pain?


I can do it
I'll get through it
But Iím only human
And I bleed when I fall down
Iím only human
And I crash and I break down
Your words in my head, knives in my heart
You build me up and then I fall apart
'Cause Iím only human, yeah

I have a membership pass to my local swimming pools and when my fibromyalgia flare ups are terribly uncomfortable and bad I do some exercises in the heated pools and sometimes I swim laps in the normal pool. Water aerobics is better than actual exercise.

Maybe you could do the same?


breathe. it's just a bad day, not a bad life.

Similarly to what Delwen said above, I'm wondering if perhaps using hot or cold compresses might help? Or even just having a hot bath. I don't have fibromyalgia, though I do sometimes have random aches and pains and taking a hot bath helps for me.

Hope the doctors appointment went well
