Treating Fibromyalgia Pain Naturally

Updated on September 15, 2019

I am a mother of three children who hates loading my body with the chemicals in pharmaceuticals. These are the home remedies my family uses.


My Fibromyalgia Pain

So a couple years ago, along with a diagnosis of arthritis and lupus, I was told I had Fibromyalgia. This helped me at least understand why none of the medicines I was taking seemed to work. The medicines I was already on for arthritis didn't do a single thing for the pain I was feeling in my shoulders, back, neck, and legs. I wish I had known then that treating fibromyalgia pain naturally was possible.

Upon being diagnosed I had no idea what fibromyalgia was or how I was suppose to be treating fibromyalgia pain. So I did a bit of research. Fibromyalgia symptoms are:

  • Widespread muscle aches
  • Muscle tightness
  • Waking up stiff or feeling stiff after sitting for any amount of time
  • Difficult remembering basic things (known as fibro fog)
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Depression

Fibromyalgia is more than a week of having a muscle ache, and far more than forgetting where you put your keys all the time.

For me, one of the times I really knew something was wrong was when I forgot how to spell my son's name. Something very easy, that I normally wouldn't forget. Another time I knew something was wrong was when my shoulders seemed to fail me. I had a feeling like an intense neck ache, my shoulders ached, but what really showed me something was wrong were the lumps in my shoulder. Where the softer part of the shoulder is had become like rocks. There was no way to massage them because they were solid feeling.

This landed me in the emergency room where I was told it was probably my fibromyalgia. So I finally really understood which pain was my arthritis and which pain was fibromyalgia related.

How My Doctors Thought I Should Be Treating Fibromyalgia Pain

I started treating my fibromyalgia pain with the medicines my doctor gave me. They started me on Gabapentin and said it would be effective in treating fibromyalgia pain. On top of this they prescribed me a muscle relaxer and a narcotic pain medicine. I took these capsules daily. After a month they were doing nothing.

I was then prescribed Lyrica with another promise that it would work in treating fibromyalgia pain. Lyrica seemed to help some, but unfortunately it came with a list of side effects I was not enjoying. With Lyrica I was dealing with:

  • A feeling of being constantly drunk
  • Constipation
  • Unable to get my words out
  • Unable to form solid sentences even just in thought
  • Tiredness in the middle of the day that I was struggling to fight while taking care of my daughter
  • Once use to it I began to feel hyped up
  • Insomnia kicked in after 2 weeks

So with this long list of issues I was becoming increasingly weary about taking my Lyrica. On top of the side effects, when the new year kicked in on my insurance and my deductible had yet to be pain I found out the medicine was going to cost me $380 a month!

The Doctors Were Wrong!

About the same time I was fed up with my fibromyalgia pain I was also writing to my internet mom about my arthritis knee pain . I had just gone to an appointment with the doctor who told me I would need both of my knees replaced. Fed up with all the doctors doing nothing to actually help me I asked her what to do.

She suggested that I start taking Mobicosa. She explained to me that it is a commonly used natural remedy where she is from. She went on to explain how taking it cured her arthritis. So she thought it would be a good thing for me to start with. She and I both agreed that it may not be helpful for treating fibromyalgia pain, but since I was going to be taking it anyway it was worth hoping for.

I started taking my Mobicosa Capsules each day. I took 2 capsules in the morning with breakfast and 2 in the afternoon with dinner. I continued taking that dosage for the first 10 days. I also rubbed Mobicosa Joint Gel on my problem areas daily. At the end of the ten days I was feeling some arthritis relief, but I was not feeling any relief with my fibromyalgia.

On the 11th day I followed the instructions. I went down to 2 capsules per day. One taken at breakfast and one taken at dinner. I continued applying the Mobicosa gel. Around the 3rd week of taking them I started realizing that my shoulders were feeling normal again. I wasn't feeling tightness in my neck. I was no longer feeling like my shoulder blades were being pulled towards each other. The pain was not 100% gone, but there was improvement. As a naysayer I assumed I must just be having a few good days.

At first I thought the Mobicosa was doing nothing for the fibromyalgia. However during the third week I figured something out.

When my arthritis causes swelling it makes my fibromyalgia worse. When the swelling is pushing on my nerves the pain becomes worse. So what used to be horrible fibromyalgia pain is now nothing in comparison. So by treating my arthritis knee pain, I was also treating fibromyalgia pain in my legs and shoulder.

Here I am over 2 months later and almost EVERY day is a good day. It is no coincidence. On top of everything Mobicosa did for my joints, it was also the first thing effective in treating fibromyalgia pain. I was finally able to return to:

  • Picking up my daughter
  • Tossing the football with my kids
  • Weeding my gardens
  • Using the shovel to dig holes for my summer veggies
  • Sleep without my shoulders getting stiff

The Realities of Using Mobicosa

Mobicosa will not fix anything over night. Just like pharmaceuticals can take weeks or months to build up in our systems Mobicosa also takes a few weeks. The amazing thing though, is unlike medicines you will get from your doctors, Mobicosa does not come with a mile long list of side effects. In fact there are only two cautions with Mobicosa:

  • Don't take Mobicosa if you have an allergy to seafood. Since Mobicosa is made of green-lipped sea mussels they are considered unsafe if you have an allergy to shellfish.
  • Talk to a doctor before using if you are pregnant or nursing. There isn't anything on the market hardly without this warning including many vitamins.

Mobicosa has been an amazing product in our home since getting it. We have found so many uses for it from treating fibromyalgia pain, helping my arthritis knee pain, helping heal bruises, to making bug bites stop itching! It is an amazing product. I am very glad Mobicosa is now available in America so other people can start treating fibromyalgia pain naturally also!
