I have been ill will FM for 7 years and haven't had this awful tendon pain since the very beginning.....i had forgotten about it and it was never this severe....but, the tendons in my legs and up near my hip sockets are aching something terrible!!! it feels like they are too short....it isn't really a burning pain but oh how they ache! the last three days have been really bad .....and we are getting our first snow of the year today so it might be the weather change....i live in northern Minnesota.... anyone else from around here having the same problem ? i can' ttake this much longer...i don't want to have to call my doc over this....the only thing i predict he would do is want to up my dosage on my pain patch....i am already at 100 mgs and i wish i had never started the patch since i am afraid of the day that i have to wean off of it...i have heard horror stories... oh, man, i can t stand this pain.... my husband is out of town, hunting with our sons and i am home with our daughter who is disabled....i am responsible for her from 8 pm until 9 am....and then a few hours in the after noon.... has anyone ever had to go to the hospital for pain? won't they just send us home since the think we are drug seekers? i wish i had someone who cared about me, here....my husband really wouldn't be any help if he was here. He isn't the type to sit and rub my back or comfort me if I was crying. He just ignores the crying. He can' thandle it....i am completely alone with this pain....and i can tell it is getting worse if I am reaching out to you guys here at prohealth....there isn't anything you can do to help me but man, it helps to call out that you are hurting and actually have someone hear you. i feel like it is creeping up the side of my head and giving me a headache....like the tendons in my neck and head are getting shorter and pulling and causing pain.... i need you guys....help!
