thisweeksheadlinespicmonkeyDr. Skip Pridgen gives an update on his research that combines the antiviral drug Famvir with Celebrex, an anti-inflammatory, to treat fibromyalgia. His emerging research could ultimately lead to a complete overhaul in how fibromyalgia is treated. (Fingers crossed.) Here’s an earlier story in case you want to learn more.

Were you diagnosed with SEID/CFS/ME, went into remission and then relapsed again? If so, you may want to read this.

A newly discovered diagnostic marker may finally give us a blood test for diagnosing fibro.

Put down that diet soda. Yes, I’m talking to you. It could be aggravating your fibro or SEID/CFS/ME symptoms.

Mystified about why you developed fibromyalgia? Turns out, in most people, it just happens. A new study indicates trigger events, such as automobile accidents or serious infections, occurred in just 27 percent of participants.

And, here’s another fibro remission story. I saw this on facebook, and there were several comments questioning if this woman actually ever had fibro. I will let you form your own opinion. I just like to include these stories because for some, they give hope.

Did I miss any important headlines this week? Feel free to share in the comments section!
