Have you changed your life and diet because of Fibromyalgia and did that help?

I have a friend that has been diagnosed with this disease and I'm doing some research for her. I've found many things on the internet, but will they really make a difference? This girl (38) has been health conscious(she is thin and keeps very active) all her life and she is having a difficult time now trying to keep up with 4 children and dealing with this disease at the same time.

    I'm a 53 yr. old male and I used to exercise and watch my weight and kept myself in really good shape.Tens yrs. ago something was happening to my body,it started in my left foot but I just ignored it.As time went by my condition was getting worse so I went to see a specialist and he couldn't find anything wrong with me.By the time I found a Dr. that could tell me what was wrong a yr. had passed and now the painful spasms go from my feet to the back of my head.She told me I had fibromyalgia. I figured the Dr. would give me pain killers and a cure all pill (didn't happen). I'm sorry about your friend having this disease, I wouldn't wish this on anyone. I have yet to find anything to help this problem. This has changed my whole life. Haven't been able to work now for almost 10 yrs. The Dr. has me on very stong pain meds as well as antidipressants. Sorry for not having good news.
