How do You Take 5-HTP for Fibromyalgia?

Fibro woman holding shoulderThis is an interesting question for several reasons.

ONE. Fibromyalgia (FM) is different for each person with the diagnosis. Symptoms range from fatigue and light achiness to all over, intense pain.  Other symptoms include poor sleep with next day brain fog, irritable bowel and/or bladder and intolerance to drafts, multiple chemicals and damp weather.

TWO.  Symptoms change. For some, FM symptoms wax and wane and are unpredictable on a daily basis. For others, symptoms may get worse over time and with aging.

THREE. Yet a third reason is whether or not there is a co-existing condition. If you already have arthritis or another auto-immune disorder, it is difficult to know whether it is the FM or the “other” condition that is causing symptoms.
