I am not familiar with the use of Gauifrensen for fibromyalgia. My understanding is that it is a component in many over-the-counter cough and cold remedies. Some dietary modifications have appeared to provide some relief for people with fibromyalgia, but there are no strong studies supporting this. Unfortunately, our understanding of fibromyalgia, its causes, mechanisms, and treatments are not very sophisticated at this time. I would see how the young woman does on her regiment before considering applying it yourself.
