Fibromyalgia—an unsolved mystery—is a complex syndrome with no known cause or sure cure. According to research or other evidence, the following self-care steps may be helpful.
  • Exercise

    Low-intensity exercise (like walking or swimming) is the best known treatment

  • Address your stress

    Reducing stress and unpleasant emotions may also reduce symptoms

  • Try 5-HTP

    100 mg of the supplement 5-hydroxytryptophan three times a day may ease symptoms

  • The anti-depressant duloxetine (Cymbalta) is sometimes prescribed to treat symptoms
