I need advice on what to do or what not to do. I have constant Back Pain. Now, I have had back problems for 11 years, longer if I count the bouts I had when I would end up in bed as a teen-ager. The FM was finally dia. when my back pain seemed to have spread beyond resonable limits. Why did my arms hurt, why aren't I sleeping no matter what I do...yada,yada. Well, for the past year I went through trying to find a PC doc and get some kind of control over the Fibro even just to stabilize my situation and I thought that with that some of my back problems would be helped. I have deg. Disc, some narrowing (possible stenosis?) bulging discs, arthritos. The last 2 or 3 weeks my back has been getting worse while my Fibro is remaining the same. I have had to use a cane for the past year but have been able to navigate my house without it, now I have had to use one at all times. Is this an extention of my Fibro and its found a new way to act up? Or is it my other problems getting worse? Should I bug my doc. with this or are we doing everything we can already? HELP!!!
