Fibromyalgia (fms) is a chronic neurological condition that causes widespread pain, fatigue, insomnia, cognitive impairments, and a host of other symptoms. Many patients are forced to quit their jobs, studies and life dreams due to the impact of symptoms on their lives.
In Living the best life with Fibromyalgia, Alisha Nurse shares what’s worked for her, to enable her to make the best of life with this chronic illness. Alisha continues to work, and function more than many fms patients are able to. In this short narrative, she shares her health regime consisting of long-standing family remedies, and natural sources of pain relief.
An avid blogger whose writing focuses on living with fibromyalgia and depression, Alisha fiercely encourages fms patients to fight for their lives and not give in to this condition.
Living the best life with Fibromyalgia is a must-read for any fms patient who wants to regain control over their life, and win their battle against fibromyalgia.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I really enjoyed this book. Reading it is like talking to a good friend and getting advice rather than getting preached at and told to do exactly what the author is pushing. Alisha tells you about what she has tried, what has worked for her, and what hasn't, but she doesn't try to tell you what worked for her is the only way to go. She includes some tasty sounding recipes that I look forward to trying, and advice to help with all aspects of having fibro, not just the physical aspects. Reading about her journey with fibro has given me some ideas to try for my own struggle, and it's helpful to see that, while you can't exactly overcome fibromyalgia, you can learn to deal with it as she has.
