I have had FM for years and suffer from chronic back pain in 3 specific areas. The pain is constant and ranges in severity on any given day. I take vicodin every morning just to get going. Have used many things for pain such as ben-gay,lidocaine patches, OTC meds,cortisone shots, narcotics,cymbalta,antidepressants, hot tubs,massage,physical therapy, etc....... Iam always tired,don't sleep well, stressed out, and sick of all the pain. Cold weather makes it worse and also have Reynaud's where I have bad circulation in my hands and they turn white when cold. Also iI had terrible case of Mono where epsiein barr virus reading was extremely high before I started getting so much pain and fatigue. I heard this could be related ???? Any one have suggestions on pain relief or help with energy for the day? PS I get alot of relief for my feet by using magnets in my shoes. I'm on my feet all day.
