    Hi I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia for 2 1/2 years. It has taken a serious turn on my employment life!! I recently strained my neck- cant even turn my head to the right it hurts soo bad!It`s 2 days now and can`t go to work. I`m taking valium today. I haven`t had a major flare up since last July. I dont know what caused this? Maybe X`mas stress and not enough exercise. I did take in a stray kitten a few days ago and I`m allergic to cats. Could my allergies have triggered a flare up?? What should I do now? Any suggestions?? Hopeful07

    Hi Hopeful07. Have you ever tried going to a chiropractor? I have FM also, but was seeing the chiro regularly before I was diagnosed. Some people are wary of chiropractors manipulating their necks, but he helped me tremendously! Of course, I deal with neck pain almost daily again. I couldn't continue seeing the chiro regularly because my insurance wouldn't cover it all.
    But, give it a try!
