As The Pain Subsides

As the pain subsides these days, I’m called to write about the many techniques that I’ve used in order to alleviate many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia. I wanted to write s single page of the things that work for me and offer a call for others to share their own alleviation techniques. The single page has grown long with many, many links to websites that backup the information that I’m providing or to websites in which you can purchase the items that have worked for me. I may have to break up the article into various posts because the information has become substantial.

As the pain subsides and I write the aforementioned epic dialogue on my own alleviation techniques; I’ve been nursing a migraine. In fact this is Day nine of the migraine. It’s like all the body pain has climbed up my neck stalk and nested in my head. I feel almost like a phony for writing about alleviation techniques when I can’t alleviate my migraine. The caveat is that I’d like to alleviate the migraine without taking pharmaceuticals. My liver would be so happy about that.

Here’s a call out to all my fibromyalgia suffering family.. What alleviates your symptoms and what has helped you achieve a better quality of life? Even more… what helps alleviate migraines!?

  1. I’m looking forward to seeing what you’ve come up! I suffer primarily from migraines, fibro, Sjogren’s Syndrome, and peripheral neuropathy. My symptoms from all of these caused me to have to retire early and go on disability. For the most part, the preventative meds I’ve been prescribed over the years, did nothing except add unwanted side effects. One thing I have found that helps with my migraines is something called a migra-cap. It’s this cap that has ice packs sewn into it that when you pull it over your eyes, hits all those trigger points. Best thing ever!


    1. I’m so sorry you’re going through this. Each condition is horrible enough on its own. I had to retire early as well. It was an ego gut punch. Thanks so much! I’ll include your tip in with my post. I’m adamant about finding the root cause of the migraine flare. I think I have it narrowed down. I hope, I hope I’m right! ❤️
