Study Reports: ULTRACET Effective for Treating Fibromyalgia Pain
The National Fibromyalgia Association (NFA) announced on June 12, 2003 that a recent study published in the American Journal of Medicine reports that ULTRACET (tramadol hydrochloride/acetaminophen) has been found to effectively reduce pain in people with fibromyalgia.
Hydraulic Exercise Gets One Fibromyalgia/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Patient Moving in the Right Direction
Jessica Mendes, a freelance journalist, writes, “Here’s my dilemma: since I have FM and CFS, fervent exercise is fraught with hazard. It is in this sense that Fibromyalgia has been a growing disability. I was no less than shocked, then, when recently, I stumbled across an opening in my range of choices. It’s called hydraulic resistance training: physical exercise, with equipment, that is non-impacting, and focuses on rehabilitation, toning and metabolism.”
How Did I Get So Lucky? Eunice Beck Reflects on Unexpected Opportunities Created by CFIDS
Coping Corner columnist Eunice Beck, RN, writes of her struggle with CFIDS/FM, “the most important positive came about the time my situation got bad enough that I had to quit working at all. There’s a saying that when a door in your life closes, somewhere there is a window that opens. That is what happened to me.”
