Before I developed fibromyalgia, I loved to shop! I was one of those crazy people who got up before daybreak to get the best Black Friday deals and spent Saturdays in December at the malls.

That would be awesome, wouldn't it? Well, I have found a few products that help reduce my fibro pain, but nothing ever delivers 100 percent. In fact, most fibromyalgia products fail miserably. I normally share products I like with my readers, but I think it's useful to share what didn't work, too. Below are a few of the products … [Read more...]

If you’ve ever watched the … [Read more...]
