    I am so sorry you're going thru this also~ I'm somewhat relieved that you understand what i'm feeling.
    I"ve had this for a couple of months now(this time) and its not getting better.I keep thinking that its something serious which is making me very stressed out!! I wrote a post on anxiety recently......I think i'm having panic attacks? not sure whats happening but I know i'm feeling alot of pain~ all my upper back,shoulders,sometimes into my neck and with that comes the headaches.but the area between my blades is sore to touch and when I turn my neck or upper body it hurts alot.(like a pulling,nawing pain)muscular I think? but yes...I feel like at times its in my chest and I can't take in enough air~ I have a rice sock heated up and i keep reheating it and using it on my upper back and neck. god I move it all over cause it hurts all over!! this is terrible!!! and my dr. has'nt given me anything for it!!I have a appointment with a pain clinic on the 13th of November!!(my first time) For now I take advil,or motrin or tylenol. but nothing takes it away~
    I ache like hell even when I lay down.(so rest does'nt
    help) A hot bath feels good....but as soon as i'm out i'm not so good.Even sitting at the computer hurts that area.maybe my posture is poor?? Mine burns too!!!What did your dr. say about it? I see your going to a neuro on thursday??? Best of Luck Val~ please write back.
    take care...... I'll check back in later this eve before bed~ Hugs, Tracey

    Rescue remedy?for stress or anxiety??? I'll ask about it at our GNC. We have one right around the corner from me.(good thing!)I'll try anything just about! I only have muscle relaxers from dr. No pain meds~ Hopefully the pain clinic will help me out in November.(seems like a long wait tho)Does your painful spots sound the same as mine? I took 2 tylenol PM so I can get some sleep soon.
    Thanks for the idea of the tea.I will try to get out tomorrow to buy some~ My IBS is flaring too!!! I have bad cramps and lots of bathroom trips!!LOL Hopefully I will sleep for awhile. I'm glad we talked :)
    Hope your doing better soon.

    Hope your doing alright today~I hoped to get out today...but you know how that goes with these diseases~ My IBS is really bad!! all day...bathroom trips! I sipped some tea(peppermint)and chai. I guess it helps some?? I can't eat anything when I get this. Food goes right thru me and causes me alot of gas/and stomach pain. So its better to just drink liquids and avoid food for a day or two.
    Yes,when I bend my neck forward I feel it pull up my spine and all across the painful areas!!! Its always been like that.I hate it. and if I keep my head turned to the left or right(like watching TV if I'm not in the center of the room),,That makes it worse and I even get dizzy and sometimes nausea :( Do you have spots in your upper back that catch or pull if you turn or move to fast? Sometimes I get a knot at the base of my neck...I can feel it.Its sore to touch too. I'll be back on later tonight,I have to make something for my boys to eat.Then I have to go to my little ones open house at school.I feel terrible but I have to make it there.....he made me a picture and left it on his desk for tonights open house~
    Even if I go for 10 minutes....at least I showed up.(hope his classroom is near a bathroom!LOL) we'll talk later......Hope your hangin in there~ :)
    I needed to add: Yes my upper arms hurt....the muscles there.(more on the left....don't ask me why??its weird.)
    And when I use a heating pad alot....and I do!My skin will feel a little numb too,probably from the heat and from the pain??it gets all red too ,and my kids will think i'm burning myself...but it does'nt even feel hot to me! weird huh?[This Message was Edited on 09/17/2003]

    I'm spo glad your dr. is checking everything out!! I had a emg done a few yrs ago.Its not bad. I also have to get the bone scan done next month. I'm still in rough shape.Its effecting my daily everything~ I have to rest after I do dishes,get up and do a load of wash....lay down agin.I have'nt gone anywhere all this week.Just bringing my kids to school and coming back home. My left hip is hurting alot too. I need a new heating pad...I wore mine out!!LOL it broke...won't turn on!!I'm bummin :( I LOVE my heat!! I'll have to use my rice socks till i buy another.
    Do you ever go into the FM chat room? I tried, and most of the times theres nobody there.Sometimes i catch 2-3 people.
    If you can make it...try sometime.I can meet you in there to talk. Let me know ok?? Not for long...cause I know we'll get sore on the computer. Hope your doing good ~ Talk soon ok? Hugs, tracey:)
