    It must have been from all the laundry I had to do yesterday after my 'accident'. I had a ton of bedding and towels, etc. I was not up for doing it, but had to.

    Today I feel as though my neck is not connected to my shoulder. This happens alot and I thought I would bring it up.

    I know most of us have shoulder and neck pain, but is it unusual to feel that the neck/shoulder area are having problems coordinating? I also turn my head and get load of pain on that side.

    I have to blame it on the FM because I can not think of another reason (yes?)

    I am new to this site and have not jet been diagnosed with FM or CFS but have symptoms of both and I am in the process of trying to get a diagnoses for whatever I have. There are several autoimmune diseases found in my family’s history and I have felt like I have FM for several years but in the last year my symptoms and pain have elevated immensely.
    I am not sure when you had your accident but I had a head on crash with a tree in 1995 and x-rays showed nothing at that time but a year later MRI’s showed deterioration and bulging in two different parts of my neck. If your pain continues I would suggest a MRI if you haven’t had one. Just to see what extent of damage you might have. I know how you feel. I look at my neck problems as a different ailment than the FM symptoms. I just know that they both aggravate each other.

    Good luck and hope you feel better soon.

    I hung the curtains, not really holding my hands too high,as the rods were down but boy that neck and shoulder and arm kicked right in.

    It was feeling better yesterday as I had rested doing much for two days.

    I really symathize, seems the slightest thing sets it off.
