I have been diagnosed with FM for the past 12 years. I was bedridden the first 2 years and have progressively gotten better using varying treatment modalities. I was, until this year, seeming almost normal, when I started to have severe shoulder pain. It has worsened over the past year and now another symptom has appeared with the shoulder pain: a muscle in the left side of my neck has tightened and now sticks out. My pain management doctor calls it a "torticollis". I have done some cursory research on this diagnosis and D*&% if it is not another potentially disabling condition. It is called a "wry neck" in lay terms and at its worse can cause a persons head to pull to one side. It is of course, worsened by stress etc. I am now stressing over it ( what else), afraid that it will get worse, even to the point of being a pronounced physical deformation. The whole point of my writing this is to ask if any one else here has this or knows anyone with FM who has it. If so, what are you doing (if anything) that helps relieve the pain or keep it from progressing? Any info will be greatly appreciated. PS I am new to this board and have learned a lot from you all. Thanks for being such a nice safe, supportive place.
