Men with Fibromyalgia and Osteoarthritis
Hi Wray, my husband has been suffering with fibromyalgia for 8 years and osteo-arthritis for the past year, my research shows that they are often linked.
He has been using 1/4 tsp of a progesterone cream morning and night on the most painful arthritic joints for a few days and has noticed some relief which has enabled him to get some sleep for a few hours. He has extreme fatigue / exhaustion and all the other associated symptoms of Fibromyalgia. He is on Venlafaxine for depression and Tramadol SR 100mg twice daily + co-codamol for the pain.
What dosage of the Natpro would you recommend he take please? I have noted your energy-boost product and would also like to try that for us both in the near future, as I was advised by you via Jean in the UK for my conditions. I will be placing an order in the UK and am awaiting pricing for the energy boost from Jean.
Also I notice you numerously mention the importance of getting a Vit D test, would this be availalbe through a regular GP? We are both dairy free due to allergic reactions, (my husband has asthma) and has been much better since going dairy free - however we substituted with soya milk and I now understand that wasn't such a bright idea due to the estrogen... so we're onto rice milk very recently. Do we need to be concerned with calcium deficiency?
Each time I try to improve the conditions, I have been using something equally as harmful, i.e for myself the Mirena Coil! (for heavy bleeding).
Your advice would be much appreciated and at least I could know I wasn't substituting with something more harmful! Thank you for your time and for this wonderful site.
