There are several books offered on Amazon for the Kindle. The books I am talking about are also free with your Kindle membership. If you do not have an unlimited membership several books are still very affordable. If you are paying out of pocket for every book then collections are probably your best bet. I found this title Free from Fibromyalgia Books 1-5 Master Collection Kindle Edition which is by Tricia Duffy to be of interest. Tricia Duffy has written several books on Fibromyalgia for the Kindle.
If you are more interested in a personal story then I would try Pain-Free: How I Released 43 Years of Chronic Pain. This book is written by Dottie DuParcé. As far as I can see this is her only publication. But for $3.99 or free with your Kindle membership it would be great to see how someone else who has years of experience, deals with their pain.

Why we need each other
With something like Fibromyalgia we must never stop educating ourselves. There are not many people who what it is we actually have. We now have a name when for so long many patients did not have a correct diagnosis. My Grandmother was told her Fibromyalgia was different things over the years. The medical community did not have a name for Fibromyalgia. And yet still today many in the medical profession do not understand it. That is why it is important for us with Fibromyalgia to never stop talking to each other. Learning from one another is our most powerful tool.
Looking on the Kindle app for any personal experiences or research done by fellow Fibro patients is our most important tool. I wish doctors would see it that way too. Maybe then Fibromyalgia would no longer be such a mystery. Many of us have found out that nutrition does play a vital factor in the pain, exhaustion, and cognitive function we experience every day. Yet many doctors do not believe what patients are telling them.
Something I changed
The most I hear about nutrition from others is a diet high in plant-based food is what helps them. I chose to start my journey on the road to vegan and eventually WFPB (Whole Foods Plant Based) because of research was done by my husband and me. Once he said he would eat this way too we started our new lifestyle, gradually. Giving up certain foods like dairy was the hardest but it took me less than 6 months to do. I gave up meat first, I noticed my amount of pain was less. My cognitive function was better too.
When I took out dairy my whole life changed. My hormones became a little more balanced. My digestive system operated better. My pain, exhaustion and cognitive function all improved. I am also a more positive thinker, without trying. I smile more, without thinking about it. While I am out of the house I smile at strangers and even give compliments to those I do not know.
My next food battle is oil or salt, I have not decided yet. I will eventually reach my goal though.
Never stop trading information and seeking education about your diagnosis. You never know what will help you conquer it all.
