This week’s headlines (week of April 27, 2015)

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.

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