Re: Curcumin...Has this been looked at?

Yeah, I'm not sure I'd go that far, but holistic and alternative medicine does deserve more attention and respect. Problem is that there is no money in it for the pharmaceutical companies who conduct or fund most pharmacokinetic type research.

Re: 7 years a sufferer - no end in site

It really believe that Quercetin and tramadol are the most reliable and effect medications around. TCAs are also good, but beware of severe side effects.
