Cool website. Has been added to my online resources! Since you have posted FibroFix -- I thought I would add some more online information for all those Fibro sufferers and CFS sufferers out there.

A little back story. I have had Fibro for years, hated taking meds, hated dealing with doctors, hated it all!!! Got sick of getting told the condition was partially mental. Frustrating to no end, I am sure others have been there too.

I got fed up with it, was directed to do some dietary changes and perhaps supplement my diet with some vitamins and minerals. Have seen great changes! It took awhile, but I stuck with it and am reaping the rewards.

Wanted to post a website with some great information regarding diet recommendations for Fibro --BellaOnline ALERT: Raw URLs are not allowed in these forums for security reasons. Please use UBB code. If you don't know how to do UBB code just post here for help - we will help out!

Hi there. My name is Chris and I'm from Australia.

I don't know if I'm in the right place or not, but I was recently diagnosed with Post Viral Fatigue Syndrome (PVFS). I have had it for 8 months now and am looking at losing my job and everything I have worked for. I went through 8 doctors and a specialist before diagnosis and the doctor who did diagnose me offered no advice as to how to combat PVFS.

Every 3-5 weeks, I have crash periods which last up to 9 days. I sleep 17 hours a day and it causes my family a lot of stress. I've tried a number of things and am using Q10 supplement, Omega 3 tablets and multivitamins but they don't seem to be helping.

Does anybody out there know how I can reduce the symptoms of PVFS so I can get on with my life? I have so much to do and no energy or time to do it.

Hi Chris,

As editor of the fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome site, I feel stupid for asking this question, but is PVFS the same as CFS or chronic fatigue syndrome?

Either way this article that I wrote some months back may give you a few tips on fatigue.

Thanks Veronica.

I've read conflicting information as to whether they are the same or not. I'm very ignorant of CFS and related illnesses so recently acquired a book called Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME) The Facts by Franke Campling & Michael Sharpe. The authors state that they are the same disease. Personaly, I don't think the CFS name accurately identifies the disease.

I've had symptoms for 8 months and was only diagnosed recently. One doctor stated it was PVFS and a second opinion said it was CFS. The second doctor was of the view they are the same. The hardest thing during this initial process was to get the correct diagnosis. I went to countless doctors with various complaints and was prescribed everything from antibiotics to painkillers to sleeping pills and doctor's notes for sick days.

The book has been good to start to understand my symptoms, how they inter-relate, what I should be watching out for and it also includes a lot about self-help. I hope my referral to this resource helps others out.

I don't know if others from Australia visit this board and have experienced these fundamental problems of diagnosis, but I recommend they also visitBellaOnline ALERT: Raw URLs are not allowed in these forums for security reasons.

I should add that PVFS may be diagnosed as a result of a virus such as Epstein-Barr, responsible for other issues such as glandular fever. It was the one which showed up in my bloodwork and has been present and active for a few years. I read somewhere that no such viruses have been found in other people with CFS/PVFS and clinically, PVFS may be a 'strain' of CFS. A few other articles I've stumbled across, as well as the book I've just read, indicate that there may be many sub-groups of CFS/ME. Food for thought, I suppose. I'm no expert but I'm trying to get a grip on what's happening.

Treating fibromyalgia is difficult because each patient is different, and many times the approach of each doctor is different. Considering the fact that, there is no known cure for fibromyalgia. But eating healthy food and having various of therapies can help them relief the pain. One effective way to cure Fibromyalgia is by having a massage therapy. Massage therapy is where a patient undergoes various massages that help relax the tensed muscles and then reducing the inflammation and pain.

Having a massage therapy give many benefits to Fibromyalgia sufferers, it lowers the blood pressure and helps in increasing endorphins, which are natural pain killers reducing the pain felt by the individual, promoting easier breathing, healing injured joints, relieving tension, giving the person a better posture, improving the immune system, controls pain and etc.

Hi Chris,

I wonder if you have had a neck injury in the past? There have been some links between neck trauma and things like CFS. Here is an article I found:
