Hi Friends, I've had FM for at fifteen years, however it seems to be at it's worst. The past month the pain has been absolutely unbarable. The severe aches and pain shoots throughout my body, especailly in my legs, spine, cervical area, and headaches. The pain aches fiercely in my legs, my back is in spasm, and I'm forever nauseas. I'm at the point where I can't leave the house. How bad does it get when pain medicine no longer works? Is this "normal"?
