In brief: Regular exercise

Exercise is an important component of fibromyalgia treatment.
Especially for fibromyalgia, goal of exercise is to maintain flexibility and tone. Try not to over exert and cause muscle injuries. Better to go slow and regular, rather than binge on exercise.

In brief: Many options

I have not seen many successes using pharmaceutical treatment in that the side effects may be worse than the initial problem.We maximize sleep, hormone balance, treatment of chronic infection, balance nutrition & recommend exercise.
80% improvement with those measures alone.
