Hi, everyone! Pardon the delay in posts and replies, I have had bronchitis for four weeks now and haven't had the energy to keep up with the blog. I am feeling a wee bit better today, so I figured I would get a post in while I am able to do something other than sleep!
A week ago, I started a two month trial of a new alternative treatment for pain, fatigue, and inflammation. Dr. Steve's "Banjo" is a unique mix of herbs that's supposed to help alleviate the symptoms of fibromyalgia, joint pain, and migraines among other things. It comes in lozenge form and tastes sort of like a spicy ginger tea. Dr. Steve has a great website that not only covers fibromyalgia, but also discusses the relationship between fybromyalgia and EDS, and his opinion that a person can have both illnesses simultaneously - that fibromyalgia is not a "symptom" of EDS.
I am very excited to see the outcome of my trial, and of course would be very happy if this relieved even some of the pain and fatigue I deal with everyday. I will post how it goes! And, nope, I am not receiving compensation from Dr. Steve/Banjo. :)
