    Love all the videos

    • The videos are spot on !! I have had Fibro for 40+ years. This has been the MOST informative material I have EVER heard. I believe this Doctor REALLY GETS IT!!
      I am VERY intrigued to participate in the conferences on Tuesday depending on the cost. I am going to mention some of this to my Doctor this month. I have always been told my Thyroid was normal and I believe that to be incorrect. I have all the symptoms he mentions, IBS, muscle problems, etc. I was diagnosed in 1992 by a country Dr. in Colebrook, NH. Thank you Dr Capabianco for diagnosing me back then. I have had a serious car accident in 1972 when I was in the Military and also have had sexual abuse throughout my life starting when I was 8 years old. I am totally intrigued by what this Dr. is saying. He makes total sense !! I am overweight, low energy, sleep probs etc. I have been on pain meds and even a infusion pump years ago. I am on all those meds he mentions too. I am on Cymbalta which I was told helped Fibro..not so sure it works. I can not take Lyrica, Gabapentin or Nuerotin at all ! Thanks for the videos. I hope your program is affordable ~

    It is a blessing to find a doctor that truly believes in Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. I have yet to find a good doctor in Missouri that doean’t make me feel like “it’s all in my head” A doctor to truly listen and believe me. I have always said, I would love to find a doctor that would do a study on my mother, brother, sister and myself as we all have chronic pain/fibro. I enjoyed reading about Dr. Murphree and will be reading even more of his topics. Thank you Dr. Murphree for believing.

    Traditional medicine is out after 30 years. I want to try a new approach…can you help me.

  8. Kathryn Kacmar says:

    I would love to receive your newsletter. Hopefully I can help educate people around me. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about 18-20 years ago, I just now went on disability because it was just getting too hard to work. I actually was terminated from my job after 23years. This disease is awful and painful. I did enjoy your video, thank you. Have a wonderful day!!!

    I am happy to have found your site. I have had fibromyalia for 20 years that was triggered by chromic pain from damaged knees, a bad back, and hip trauma from a work injury. A knee surgery set it off. It literally killed my ability to sleep which was causing depression and stress not knowing what was wrong with me.I felt all over like I was being slammed into a wall over and over again. Fighting work comp over the injurys just made the stress levels even worse. Finally when I was diagnosed and got a doctor to get my sleep under control, and pain levels, and deep tissue massage for all the huge muscle lumps that would form and grow. I won my case and found a good group where I got the treatment I needed when I moved to AZ. I was doing pretty well for 16 yrs until Where liberty Mutual decided to start withdrawing care and saying my symptoms were not related to each other. The deep tissue massage stopped so the muscle lumps came back even worse. They cut off getting ambien (of all sleep meds out there this was the only one that worked for me)so my sleep went from 6-7 hours of deep restful sleep I am getting 2-4 hours of badly broken up sleep so I start the day slowly, never feel very alert at all and accomplish next to nothing during the day. I spend the day just trying to get through it but feel worthless. I am afraid to drive because I can’t trust my brain to focus. No matter how exhausted or tired I am I cannot take a nap during the day. It is so frustrating when family or strangers just tell me to take a nap if I am tired. Now because most pain management drs are also adding drug rehab to it and treat all their aptients as drug addicts and demand urine tests to even prescribe pain meds. Insurance won’t pay for that and it’s extremely expensive so now I no longer get pain meds. I went from a cane to a walker because of it. I tried to get help through SS disabilty and my family dr. made me jump through a bunch of hoops including sleep studies which cost me alot and all they really test for is apnea which I don’t have. They said get my pain levels under control. Well we’ve already discussed why now I can’t do that. So the family phyiscian said she’d give me Savella telling me her fibro patients do marvelous on it. I NEVER take a new med without researching it. It scared the heck out of me! And the research I read showed it to be only 7 percent of the time. So I decided to not take that. The pain management Dr. said she could not prescribe ambien (against the rules) even though it was obvious I needed it) but she said she could recommend I go to behavioral health to get morphine for sleep! REALLY? Savella and morphine are supposed to be safe alternatives to ambien? So Now I am getting no treatment at all. Exercise is difficult because of the knees, back, and hip. And because I am a basket case it is getting harder and harder to lose weight. Vicious circle. My routine used to be take ambien and low dose nortriptyline at night. I would sit down and read until my mind couldn’t concentrate and then I went to bed and slept well and had pleasent dreams. I never drank or went partying or any of the other things I hear about. Diring the day I was pretty well pain wise in the morning andn the more I did over the day the more I would hurt so by the end of the day I was in pretty bad shape. I would not take pain meds till I really needed them and then would take only lowest doses just to take the edge off. I never abused them and even my drs said I could take more for the pain but I always tried to be careful. Twice a month I would get deep tissue work on the muscle lumps to keep them smaller and less obstructive to my movement. If I would do too much they would always flare up so they needed regular attention. I can do stretching exercises as long as those lumps are under control. This by no means cured me or made me totally functional and pain free biut I felt I had a quality of life I could live with. I had to learn over the years how much physical activity a day was safe and how much was going to make me hurt terrible for days on end. SLEEP was the most restorative thing for me and EVERYTHING else hinges on it. Pain control is second with deep tissue work being the next important. Now I get none. Sure it makes me depressed but depression isn’t the cause and treating that with dangerous drugs will only make things alot worse. I have found when sleep is good and pain under control everything is easier, including a better diet and weight control. NOTHING I have tried for sleep has ever worked except ambien. It has worked well in that I wake up very refreshed and alert and pain levels are lower. It seems the current medical system wants to seperate each symptom and it’s farmed out to a different department costing the patient more money than they have just in co-pays and tests, and different drs give you meds that fight each other and actually make things worse. And what works for one does not always work for another and you have to find the right combo for you. I hope that someday I can find a holistic/medical Dr my insurance covers that understands all the symptoms are related and need to all be addressed as related. I don’t get depressed anymore as I do being angry at the ignorance of drs and the medical system. I know way more about this then the Drs available to me at the moment and it’s very frustrating when they treat you like you know nothing about fibro and want you to be their guinea pig for dangerous drugs. THEY are the ones causing me the most stress! I know why my brain checks out (hopefully when I am not driving a car on a busy freeway) When I feel better and have an alert brain I care more about my overall health and diet. I do hope that someday I can get the treatment I need again. Thanks for your website.
