    Unusual pain in my back

    I've had fibromyalgia for several years and have had and know all about the joint/muscle pains. However, for the past several weeks, I've had a new kind of pain. Near my right shoulderblade, there is an area that itches, burns and twitches. It's getting worse all the time. Has anyone else experienced this and what did you do for it? I would greatly appreciate any help!

  • 28 days ago

    I love to travel but lately my fibro symptoms aren't having it.

    Taking a road trip with fibro was probably 1 of the worst decisions I've made. I'm guessing that me sitting in the same position for several hours at a time isn't smart. After taking a 10 hr trip from DE to South Carolina my muscles (legs,arms, back) ached for the duration of the day and most of the following day. I felt like I had been running a marathon or had an intense week long workout at the gym. I couldn't really participate in many of the planned activities. The symptoms are....

    Ready to give up

    Well, it must be my own fault I have fibro. I either eat wrong or don't get enough exercise. So I feel super guilty about having it. Or maybe it's all in my head. How can someone have this much pain and not have any "serious" health problems. Yep, some days I want to give up. Anyone else?

    Fibromyalgia blood test

    Curious!! I hear there is a new blood test that has been approved to detect fibromyalgia. Am looking for more information on this test and wondering if anyone out in message board land has done this test. I have had the poking test to see if all the points pass with pain and they do not yet I have persistent pain along my shin bones when touched or walking. The best diagnosis doctors can give me is chronic shin splints but I have stopped all activity except getting around like a normal person. Massage....

    CHRONIC PAIN SUCKS

    I am a husband living with someone with Fibromyalgia, arthritis, etc. Having to help her roll over and get out of bed, make sure I do all the lifting and bending around the house. The numerous doctor appointments and medications (take one for pain in morning, one in the afternoon, another at night, and Tylenol in between just to get through the day.) and needles across and up her back. Even tried cannabis oils and felt sick to her stomach and light headed so had to stop that also. Was told the arthritis....

    Appetite loss with weight gain

    I was diagnosed with FM in 2004. A few years later, along with other symptoms, I began to mysteriously gain weight even though I was doing nothing different. For the last few years I've lost my appetite. I'm never hungry, don't eat much, but I don't lose weight. I even continue to gradually gain. I take Klonopin and Tramadol for the FM and have for several years. Anyone else have a similar situation? Any suggestions about what to do?

    Help for pain sufferers

    I am in my 50's, and I believe my Fibromyalgia started when I was going through a period of a lot of stress in my late teens. I went through all the different doctors, and frustrations. Long story short, after many years, I was finally diagnosed with FM by a Rheumatologist. There was nothing she could do about my bouts of deep fatigue. The meds were helping, but, I was still in pain. The doctor couldn't do anything more. And, through someone I met at the time I was introduced to specialist....
