hi all you have all been very nice to answer my questions and i was hoping someone could help me again!! my problem is i was hit by all this horribly !!!speaking about the fibro and myofascial pain!! and what ever else is going on inside me. I know im suffering from more than this! At first like i said i had horrible arm and shoulder pains! then i was fighting fire with fire flat on a heating pad for over two years. didnt have proper meds at all then. now that im medicaded and years have went by, i have terrible stinging pains in my middle back, there sever! ill grab my gradchild or move wrong or just be setting there . my pain is usually always more intence in the evening. I also have a raised spot where all this pain has accured.and it has effected the muscles in my back so much. my doctor said this is normal with chronic back pain!! I dont think its normal to cry this much from anything! my poor family has had to deal with all this too. It breaks my heart so much when its that bad i cant hold back these tearse. Im fighting for my disability but i dont want to jeperize me getting this(FIRST FILLED IN 2001). But part of me wants to go to spokane wash and see a specialest there. ive been to one pain specialist and paid 300.00 for him to tell me something i all ready know!! didnt give me anything for pain and told me to go to the pain meeting at my local hospital. I really need support i just dont know what to do anymore my nails have seen better days..lol its a horrible feeling having this much pain in my arms and back and not knowing if myo and fibro is all this is.. can anyone give me the courage to keep going . what would you do??????
