OK, this is getting really scary. I thought that FMS was not a progressive disease. If it's not, then why am I getting worse? I was trying to walk up a very small hill this past weekend and I almost did not make it. My legs were burning and aching so bad I honestly felt like I was going to have to stop. Every step was like climbing a mountain. I have foot pain, leg pain, lower back pain, arm pain and neck pain. I think I am dying - seriously. I'm also finding it hard to catch my breath. Please someone answer - is this a progressive disease? I was never this bad before!! HELP!!
