Could the foods you eat be making your fibromyalgia symptoms worse? Are there certain dietary choices that might benefit you? Even if you think you’re eating a nutritious and balanced diet, find out why it may fall short of meeting your body’s needs.

  • Connections between sleep and appetite
  • Hormonal malfunctions in fibro that may compound your symptoms

Relationships and Fibromyalgia

Special Issue: RelationshipsDoes your spouse and family question you when you say you are not up for participating in a physical activity with them? Do you always feel as though you look much better than you feel? Or, perhaps your partner is just pretending that your “fibromyalgia phase” will be over within a few months, and you can both get back to living life as it used to be. These are just a few of the strained relationship problems that you are probably facing, given the invisible nature of your symptoms, but there are ways to resolve them.

The Special Issue on Relationships is a 20-page collection of helpful advice on the social aspects of fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Experts weigh in on how to keep your personal relationships strong, enjoy intimacy in spite of pain and fatigue, and help children (or grandchildren) cope with your fibromyalgia. Improve your emotional well-being by learning to handle hurtful comments and unwanted advice. Plus, find out how to help others relate to your condition, improve communication, and keep a positive attitude.

Don’t let the obstacles brought about by fibromyalgia put a strain on your relationships. Click here to order the Special Issue on Relationships, available for only $9, which includes free shipping in the U.S.
