Does anyone know of a natural pain relief method for this illness?
Now this is quite painful, your body aches in different places, get tired quickly and some days are a real struggle to get mobile. Have a friend who has this and she uses hot peppers, chilli in her foods along with rosemary cut very finely. The rosemary is used in small amounts either roasted on meats or in the base of bread. Hope this helps.
Compression sleeves and stockings help with the pain.

I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago, and the doctor prescribed muscle relaxers and an anti-depressant. I didn't like the way the drugs made me feel so I stopped taking them, did my own research and changed a few things in my life. Within 3 months I no longer had any pain. Here is what I did:
1) I made sure I got at least 8 hours of sleep every night (previously, I was averaging 6-7). To help with this, I took Valerian (an herbal sleep aid) before bed.
2) I took St. John's Wort, an herbal anti-depressant.
3) I took Siberian Ginseng, to enhance the immune system and combat fatigue.
4) I started walking every day.
5) I ate healthier -- increased fruits and veggies, stayed away from sugar and junk food, increased whole grains.
I understand that this might not work for everyone who has fibromyalgia and sometimes I wonder if I was misdiagnosed. But, I had the constant overall body pain, plus the intense pain in the typical pressure points. All of that went away after three months and it has never returned.
They solve everything.

Thankyou all for your advice, some of it is very useful, I have a history of illness that spans around 15 years I was diagnosed with CFS/ME when I was 22 and the ME gradually dissapeared through the Help of a good Chinese Medical Herbalist. Now hewever at 36 was diagnosed with Fibromylgia.
Sorry it all sounds Depressing, thankyou all for the info you have given, including "Tubey Bandage".
Hope we speak again!!!!!
My sister-in-law refused to take her prescribed medications due to their side effects, she goes to the casino for fun whenever she experiences the pain. It relieves her pain because she enjoys what she does. But a friend of mine, who has this prognosis uses alternative medicine to avoid side effects of the prescribed medicines.
What your sister does backs up what I found effective with Lupus and fibromyalgia-to do whatever it takes to be happy, and to try and reduce stress. I'm not trying to sound cheesy, and medications are important too, but when I'm not happy I get sick! Going to the casino, window-shopping, giving up full-time for part-time work, even playing with kittens!...anything that is fun does help! Good luck!
My mom sent me a detoxifying method. The method that was featured by a wellknown endocrinologist. My siblings and parents tried it and they liked the after effect. They've moved some toxins after 5 days.
Though it cannot cure fibromyalgia, I heard acupuncture will help manage pain.
I tried out a 'TENS' machine - a digital pain reliever. It worked wonders on my aching muscles and gave me an energy boost. By using it everyday I'd say I've improved by 30%.
They can be bought for around £20
