What are the best treatments for fibromyalgia? I am sensitive to sleep aids - but I need something to help me get over being exhausted.

A: the nurse practitioner who is treating me is a fellow sufferer, and that means that she has tested whatever she gives me. We are both taking a muscle relaxer at bedtime called Zanaflex.

Secondly, you NEED to floss. Mouth washes don''t help as much as one would think...and...
