Immediate pain relief within days of taking this although extreme exertion does bring on pain. I did find that when I stopped, my fibro pain in hands returned preventing me from going to sleep easily. Otherwise, I really appeciate how much it helps even if not perfect 'cure.'

I've been taking Ribose for over five years. The Fibro pain is gone. I keep taking it for energy and cell building. I'm a 60+ caregiver for my 90 year old dad. I take Ribose to keep my energy up.

Comment:
Although I am skeptical of any of the 'cures' for fibromyalgia, I was willing to try this since neighbor told me how much it helped her daughter. It seemed to work really well, until I ran out.
