    I have had fibromyalgia going on 14 years now. Tried the Quell system about a year ago. But even on the lowest setting I couldn’t stand the sensation of the device. I wish I could, seeing that I dealt with pain for so long. So I had to send it back. I’m now trying CBD oil and have had significant relief. I am also on tramidol but very low dose and only when I need it. Whatever we try seems to be more expensive than prescribed drugs! Which only trap you into addiction and create all new symtoms and destroy organs! I’m lucky to have a doctor who goes along with my suggestions. What really helped was stopping sugars and gluten. Lost 50 lbs and went off of blood pressure pill, cholesterol meds, 3 other pain meds, and Prilosec because of all the pills. I now only go for yearly physicals. So now it’s just real food, organic and non GMOS. I also use essential oils. Make my own lotions and toothpaste and filter my water. I suggest this to everyone.

      Hi Pattie, I just read your post and found it to be helpful. I want to try the CBD oil, but I don’t know where to order it from. I have heard that some have no actual active ingredients. Could you give me an idea of how to buy genuine CBD oil? Thank you.
