Fibromyalgia, yes, it is a pain-in-the-everywhere, as those of us who have it, call it.
So what can you do for it? If you are like me, and have lived with it for a long time (17+ years) you likely have tried pretty much everything to try to manage your 24-7 pain levels.
There is no cure for fibromyalgia yet, so managing pain and inflammation is key to be at least a tiny bit more comfortable. Here is something that I have used for many many years on and off, not just for fibromyalgia, inflammation and swelling, but for allergies as well. But first, my usual disclaimer :

I’ll tell you the brand that I use, and I will say that it is the most expensive one that I have ever used, and I also have found, according to their label at least, one of the most pure. I have used other brands in past which combine Bromelain and Quercetin together but for me, I have found little to no benefit. Maybe it works for other people, but I have found only the pure quercetin to be most helpful.
*I am not affiliated with this company in any way, and nobody pays me to say this. I cannot provide endorsement for the product, only to say that it is the one that I currently use and I hope that it helps somebody out there.
Quercetin by AOR (Advanced Orthomolecular Research) is the flavanoid that I use and I like that it is made in Canada.
It is not a cure for the pain of fibromyalgia but I do find that it reduces swelling for sure. In addition, if I am in the midst of an allergic reaction, or even better, feel allergies coming on ahead of time, I take high doses of quercetin for amazing relief and no drugs!
As I am not a medical expert, so I won’t elaborate more, but hope that you look into it as one more tool in the box of creative symptom management as a natural anti-inflammatory.
