      Hi Jodal. If your pain is so unbearable why no try LDN? There a few discussions here about it. Have a look! 

      Piracentam is more for cognitive function and stamina which are also important issues in fibro patients. X

      Hi Alanah. Piracetam is not for pain but for congnitive function. I'm on LDN for fibro. At the Cort Johnson web site about FibroM and CFS’s there's plenty of alternative therapies reviews one of them being on LDN. Maija Haavisto is one of the site’s contributors and a young women who’s been on LDN for over 8 years and also on Piracetam.

      Not a lot of people know about this combination....

      confused

      This is "The World" Alanah !lol The things mentioned are pills or similar, although they're considered "alternative" in terms of medical use.  They're not painkillers, if that's what you mean.  

      It goes either for UK, US or anywhere.

      There are also other things in the world for fibro that are not drugs but I wasn't reffering to that.

      Of course all things are available depending on how much money you've got.

      What's your point, Alanah?

      No, no, I didn't make myself clear,I'm  sorry! We all need positivity, we're all in pain, right?

      To clarify: I'm in Portugal but I'm being followed by a local NHS GP + consultants. That is inexpensive medical care just like in the UK. 

      About the drugs:  I'm on LND - Low Dose Naltrexone which is a prescription drug. My GP acepted to prescribe it  because i've reserached extensively, printed out the sutudies and gave the tohim. He knows me for over 11 years and he knows I'am a alternative health freak.

      Some doctor's don't know LDN so they don't like to prescribe it. But they can if they want to. I've posts here about this and I'm reporting regularly to the forum on my experience.

      LDN is quite cheap.

      The other one, Piracetan, for cognitive function is also inexpensive and widely available. 

      So there's hope,Alanah!

      The other things for fibro that imply more money are new treatments of different kinds such as: 

      - Guaifesin + diet. They believe fibro is caused by kidney phosphates; 

      - "Lemeterapia" a Brazilian treatment based on a special type of osteopathic sessions. There's an office in Portugal too. This can be expensive altough they "promise" cure. They believe fibro is the result of lifelong  muscle and joint injuries. 

      Both can be expensive.

      Is there anything I can do for you Alanah?

      Alanah, I'm sorry I didn't make myself clear. Have I offended you? Sorry, that was not my intention !

      I'm on NHS treatments out of the UK. I just wrote you a big message and our lovely moderators deleted the message because ther was a "g" word there (no, not a swear word).

    Thanks T for highlighting this drug. I haven't heard of it before. I was asking the gp if I could take dexedrine for a cognitive boost (after brain haemorrhage) but have hbp so apparently not. Will be following your thread with interest, thanks!

      Gosh Jane,  I'm so sorry youre going through all that. I'm going to try to make my GP prescribe Piracetam for me. I've no idea if someone like you could have it. Nonetheless have a look at a scientific article Piracetam in the treatment of acute stroke. by author Orgogozo.  XXX

      Hi Jane , How're you doing? Just by accident I came accross this nootropic (brain function enhancer) that perhaps would be of use to you: Citicoline. It's good for the brain all around and it seems to lower blood pressure too. X

    Been to gp this morning was agony getting there but they have give me oral morph

    For this "blood clot" which in all fairness had no scan so how do they no. They are going my pain in leg with a positive crp blood test result

      Joda, I'm sorry for you.....the first priority is to get the diagnosis. You must really press to be valuated by whomever's necessary to get a proper diagnosis. Just be very firm. 

      I would write down everything i've been feeling, like a report, date it, print it, sign it a give it to the doctor.
