After keeping Fibro at bay for 3 or 4 years, I started running for exercise and developed a stress fracture. (maybe too old at 53 to run??) Now it seems all my previous fibro symptoms are back. The dr just says wait and take anti-infammatories. But it is getting worse and worse. After 2 months, I have pain in lower back, wrists, tingling and twitching in legs, and a dull pain behind the knees. Of course, am not sleeping so am taking ambien. Other than supplements and advil and an antibiotic for a sinus infections-nothing else. I think I will start back on the guai protocol which helps SO MUCH in the past. Of course, dr and hubbie think am crazy as pains come and go-mainly in late afternoon. The dr wants me to start walking but every time that I do-end up in agony that night. Has anyone else experienced something like this? How long does a stress fracture take to heal? And why would it trigger all these other "fun" things? Could I have actully hurt my back-thus triggering all the other stuff? Any words of wisdom would be great appreciated as am tired and hurting and getting no help from Dr or family.
