I'm so confused. My rheumotologist pressed on the tender points (that are mapped for FM) and I saw stars!!! So painful! Anyhow, he claims... don't worry, these pain symptoms are not in your head.... you have a lot of severe nerve damage in your body. The discs in my back are okay and says it's from other mysterious source. How can that be? Is that what Fibro truly is.... just nerve damage? He says he can implant a device in my spine to control the pain. Anyone have similar experience or comments? Thanks!!
