Just wanted to introduce myself -- I've been suffering from chronic myofascial pain (neck, shoulder, back spasms,) migraines, and bizarre nerve symptoms for about 15 years, and a host of other symptoms to boot (IBS, panic, sweating, yeast, etc.) It is looking a lot like FMS at this point.... although my wonderful doc is still working on eliminating other causes before tagging me with the dreaded diagnosis. So, I'm finally seeking out some support from others who suffer this as well. I currently see a chiropractor/massage therapist (this helps some), just started Effexor (hasn't helped the pain yet, but did MIRACLES for my sleep and energy levels) and take Vicodin for pain as a last resort. I was taking Ultracet for pain, which worked well, but can't be taken with the Effexor. I'm very interested in learning as much as I can about this condition/these conditions. I'm a training psychotherapist, and I want to develop a specialty in working with chronic pain sufferers ..... the mental health field as a whole shares almost as much of the prejudice regarding FMS as the medical field --- Obviously, those of us who have chronic pain know it is a very real, physical condition.
