Pain all over, exhaustion, bloating and constantly forgetting things are but a few of the many symptoms often associated with fibromyalgia.
Yoga, Meditation and exercise may help.
According to a 2010 study by Oregon Health & Science University researchers, yoga can help combat fibromyalgia symptoms like pain, stiffness, fatigue, poor sleep, poor memory, anxiety, depression and poor balance.
It is suggested to begin with mild exercise and go slow to keep symptoms from flaring up.

Supplements including Magnesium, 5-htp, vitamin d3, fish oil and more.
Magnesium may help the pain associated with fibromyalgia
5-htp may help to increase deep sleep, while relieving pain. It works by supporting healthy serotonin levels in the brain. It’s made in the body from tryptophan, but is not found in foods high in tryptophan. Supplementation is necessary.
For the study, 30 women with fibromyalgia – who were also deficient in vitamin D – were divided into two groups. The treatment group received oral vitamin D supplements for 20 weeks. The control group received a placebo.
Starting after just one week, the treatment group showed improved physical functioning, had less morning fatigue than the placebo group and reported a marked reduction in pain.
Fish Oil containing Omega 3 Fatty Acids have natural anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce fibromyalgia pain.
Epsom salts is magnesium sulfate. Soaking in an Epsom salt bath helps your body absorb magnesium. This soothing bath can also help reduce pain and induce relaxation.
