does anyone else suffer from flank pain?  i'm talking about the area on your back; on the sides.  this is new...very tender to the touch and is creating a lot of spasms.  this is new for me and i'm not sure if it's fibro-related or not.
thanks!

yes, i suffer from flank pain on both sides, and down my hips, and my ribs also.
I can hardly touch the area sometimes. I use moist heat, and thats about all that really helps. My lower back, hips and flank area seem to be my most vulnerable area, then the neck, shoulders and knees. The pain travels to different areas every day. Hope you feel better.

Well sometimes I get pains in my sides or on my ribs, but it's not a common area for me to have pain, it only happens once in awhile.

Yes, I get that occasionally and it is very sensitive to the touch.  Ibuprofen helps me with that, along with hot showers and gentle stretching of the muscles.

I have flank pain right on the right side, it is starting in my low back and going across into the hip area and down my leg. If I press in midway on my right sided butt cheek it is really sore.
I have this since Sunday.

The chiro always tells me find the trigger point and treat that not the pain area because the trigger point is causing the pain.

I swear I can answer every post about pain, but cannot help with meds, I am one of those fmers that the meds do not agree with, either they do nothing, I get a reaction or am so doped up I cannot function.

Hugs, Linda

I have problems with pain on my ribs and lower back. One of the things that I do is I placed a ramp that my husband made under the foot of my bed so that my feet are raised up. this forces my back to stay flat taking the pressure off my entire back. i was in a little disbelief when my doctor suggested this but when i go to bed after a hard days work and the lower back is tender and hurting i actually wake up fealing better and sometimes with no pain. idea

Kate, thanks for the advice, my low back is so bad all week I could scream. I just had a bout of it two weeks ago and it is back.

You would think the ramp would put more pressure on our backs but if you tried it and it helps, I believe it.
