Is Anyone Using DHEA To Help Alleviate Symptoms?

Is Anyone Using DHEA To Help Alleviate Symptoms?

I read that DHEA can help lesson pain. Has anyone else tried this and if so is it working? I already take mega doses of Vit D, Vit B, Q10 and Magnesium and also wear a magnetic bracelet! Will try anything other than the usual fibro "meds" at this point.

I have tried all of them. I went to a neurological conference the the topic of fibromyalgia. When I got home I ordered all the recommended supplements. That was another couple hundred dollars down the drain. Didn't help me not one bit.

I don't take any pharmaceuticals. A few years ago I had tried muscle relaxers, antidepressants, pain meds and cymbalta. Didn't work for me, didn't help at all.

Just started taking liquid plant minerals and doing Qigong. By just started, I mean, two days ago. I have tried everything else so I thought I would give this a shot and see what happens.

All my muscles, ligaments, tendons and fascia feel frozen in space. I noticed that while doing Qigong last night, I could not speak the words Haula while raising my arms or lowering them. The muscles, I am guessing the diaphragm and belly, couldn't move to push the air out. This just made my suspicions a fact to me. Everything is stuck! This also happens when I am speaking more than a sentence.

I have taken DHEA for years because it helps lupus.Which I also have.I get it from compound pharmacy so I know what milligrams I am getting.When you buy it as a vitamin you haven’t any idea what Your getting. Also you need a percription for a compound.
I tried a few over the counter vitamin DHEA & I felt nothing.the compound I could feel it within a half hour.

@A MyFibroTeam Member , You're right, medicine has too much chemical ... I tried to take all medicine out, and take only vitamins B12-C-D3- fish oil - magnesium .. But was only 2 weeks and I have to back at the medicine, I finished at hospital.... So I don't trying again....

@A MyFibroTeam Member not sure if anything really helps but will try anything "natural" right now. Meds I have tried have too many side effects.

Wow! That's a lot of vitamin supplements. Do they seem to work? Is there one that works better than others or is it the combination of them all?
