Hello Everyone,
I am amazed at how many people are suffering with FMS. Alot of people do not realize that everyday your body feels like it has the flu. A simple squeeze on the arm or a tight hug can be painful for me.

Someone asked about muscles cramps in feet...I do get them too and in my calves and forearms too! I try to make sure I eat potassium rich foods, potatoes, bananas, etc. I also take Stress tab vitamins.

I have used a "tens" unit before...it does work till your muscles get used to the unit.

I was wondering if there is any area of the country that is okay for FMS people. Arizona?

Take Care everyone and maybe someday they will find a cure!
