Years ago when this first started, I was told that I possibly had a pinched nerve. I went to a chiropractor and would get some relief but not total relief. I didn't hurt all the time so I thought that it was a pinched nerve. Over the last couple of years, the pain has progressed to an almost constant thing with very little relief. Going to a chiropractor gets quite expensive and since it doesn't provide much relief, I quit going. It took until about 2 weeks ago before they finally told me that I was dealing with fibromyalgia. I'd heard of it, done a little research, but never gave it much of a thought. In all honesty, with the onset of chronic migraine headaches, body aching all the time (literally the only thing that didn't seem to hurt was my hair, and at times I thought it was hurting), feeling depressed all the time...I was beginning to think that maybe I was just imagining all of the pain since they hadn't diagnosed me. A lady that I know told me that she had FM and found some temporary relief from EPSOM salt with lavendar baths and craniosacral therapy. I've been doing the salt baths and it helps to relax me so that getting to sleep is a little easier but that is all. Since she knows how to do the craniosacral therapy, she is going to start doing that on January 11. I'm not a big fan of medicine so at this point, I don't wanna go that route. Every day I wake up feeling like a freight train has run over me and drug me down the track. I would like to know from others though, did you all ever wonder if the pain was all in your imagination since most people couldn't fathom the fact that people can hurt all the time? Thanks for your time.
