Olivia I'm sorry you have to wait so long to see a rheumy. I think keeping a journal is a good idea before your app. Fibro changes so often it's hard to keep track of what hurt when if you don't write it down and of course there is the fog so you won't remember half of what you want to talk to the doc about.
From my waist up pretty much stays sore all the time, like I have been beaten sore. But then different parts take turns being the pain of the day that hurts worse sometimes it's my back, sometimes it is my neck, sometimes it is my ribs, sometimes it is my shoulders and sometimes it is my hands (this has been the worse lately). I don't know if these parts draw straws each day to see who is the lucky one or what. Some days it moves around to many different places.
Moist heat always feels good to me in any form. I can't take many meds so I take tylenol 4000 mg a day, use lidoderm patches and TENS unit.
luv and hugs
