    What supplements for Fibro do you take?    I've worked long and hard on managing this stuff and take all supps for Fibro ... magnesium is critical and much more....if you have an interest to hear more, I'll say more....but otherwise  it takes a lot of healing of many things gone wrong in our bodies....   Not slapping pain pills and expecting any healing......truly.....Joy 76 US

    That is so good! I was trying to think of the word 'moonlighting', when I was talking to some friends yesterday. It just was not coming through the fog... I ended up after 10 minutes with the word 'skylighting!', the spontaneity totally lost! But at least this time my brain was working on the same area, and my lovely husband could translate for me!  :-) Fibromyalgia don't you just ... oh what's the word !!!!

      I've never had the fog, keep waiting for it to appear, but it does not.

      I credit grape seed extract for circulatory support from head to toes....started on this powerful antioxidant in 1995, so 19 yrs on it.

    It is important to try to improve the amount and quality of sleep.

    Melatonin, the hormone your body is supposed to make between Dusk and Dawn is itself a useful anti inflammatory antinociceptive agent

    Antinociceptive means it reduces your sensitiivity to pain.

    If you search the web  for "Melatonin in Antinociception: Its Therapeutic Applications" you should find a full text paper that gives more details and it has a long section on Melatonin and Fibromyalgia that is worth reading.

    Interesting to see that St John’s Wort  is a good source of herbal melatonin.

    There are other ways of improving melatonin secretion before you go to bed.

    There is an APP for your computer screen that dims it down and reduces the BLUE light (which is bad at stopping melatonin secretion)  from LED displays. It's called FLUX and is quick easy and free to install. They do other versions for other displays as well.

    It helps to get OUTSIDE during the day as BRIGHT LIGHT exposure during the day helps reset your circadian rhythm and if you then keep your light subdued during the evening and have a dark bedroom at night (maybe wear an eye mask) when you sleep will increase your melatonin production.

    You can also get (or ask your Dr) for TIME RELEASE  Melatonin TABLETS

    Start with the very lowest dose you can obtain and then gradually work up as required. You need to take it slowly as some people get very vivid dreams. but the dreams tend to wear off after a while unfortunately.

      Ted, good to see a UK member talking about supplements support.

      I have talked this since I arrived here, but it probably makes better sense from a UK member.... what do we in the US know?    haha

      I worked long and hard to find my sleep remedy and I use a low dose melatonin, not release form) and inositol (b vitamins family) and calms' homeopathic....I sleep 8-10 hrs of quality sleep.

      SJW caused by blood pressure to rise....so I don't touch it now.  

      Are you up on the need for K2 for best Vit D absorption....I have a lot of info on the MK4 vs MK7 version of K2.

      I am awareof the role of Vitamin K when using Vitamin D3. i'm not convinced it helps with Vitamin D3 absorption/retention however I think it has a very important role.

      When your 25(OH)D level gets above 40ng/ml (100nmol/l for UK readers) the floodgates for calcium absorption are opened and it's possible that people will have more calcium floating around their blood stream that could deposit and calcify the arteries. Taking Vitamin K helps keep calcium locked in bones and helps prevent it calcifying arteries.
