So, I woke up this AM, and I had this weird pain throughout my body.  My legs were crampy (but not charley horse crampy), my back ached way more than usual, and my shoulder felt like it was dislocated.  OK, I've never had a dislocated shoulder, but if I could imagine what one felt like, this would be it.  OMG, I hurt so bad! cry   I was trying to figure out if I did anything different yesterday, but I hadn't. 
 
Sherrine, you'd be so proud of me because I actually got out of bed and tried to stretch, hoping that would help.  But, it didn't.  Since I'm not taking Vicodin anymore, I settled for the 800mg of ibuprofen, and I still hurt like crazy! sad
 
Anyway, has anyone else had to deal with this weird kind of pain before?  If so, what do you do about it?  Oh, I have this stuff called, Sombra that I got from my massage therapist (don't freak, she's very familiar with fibro and has helped me a lot).  It has the "normal" stuff like capsaicin, aloe vera, with hazel, etc, and smells like Vicks Vaporub. tongue    Usually that helps take some of the pain away, but it's not helping today. shakehead
 
Help? confused cry


FINALLY dxd with fibro on 06/13/08
Neurontin, Ibuprofen for pain-which doesn't help
Zoloft & methadone (NOT for pain) for sanity-which doesn't help, BTW
Klonopin for anxiety (Guess what?  Doesn't help!)
Aciphex for reflux

Kelly,

Do you think that you might have slept wrong? I sometimes do and have a lot of pain in the morning from it.

Best wishes,

Hugs, Karen

Hi Kelly, I woke up about two weeks ago and had exactly what you are feeling...like my left shoulder was dislocated.  I still can't turn my arm outwards, if you know what I mean...I have to have help putting my coat on or reaching behind me for something.  I can't think of anything I did to cause this...but I can't think anyway.  At the same time, I got this butt/hip/thigh/knee combo pain that I can't explain on the right side of my body...sometimes radiating pain down the outside of my leg.  I am now limping and favoring my left leg so it too is starting to throb.  I have been taking so much Advil that I am probably bleeding internally but I am allergic to narcotics!

I FEEL your  pain!   (who said that...Clinton??)

Kelly-

I have had that pain but more in the beginning when the fibro first hit. Every morning I would wake up like that- feeling like I hurt my shoulder (and especially the side I slept on the most during the night) and pain in my back. And are you packing or doing anything extra to aggravate your shoulder and back?

Hope it starts to feel better soon for you.

Hi Kelly,

Like Karen, I wander if you maybe slept different or in a different pose. I have had that in my shoulder and neck before and it is so bad that I can't turn my neck all the way. It will sometimes last for 1-2 weeks before I am able to move my neck like it should and I've always blamed it on the way I slept.

Also, sometimes if I sleep "like the dead" as they say and don't move during the night, I feel worse the next morning. More stiff and in pain more than usual. I always took a warm bath and used the heating pad which helped for a little bit, but nothing really seemed to work. It just would go away on it's own. Hope you get to feeling better!

Hugs!!!  Margie

Thanks a bunch for everyone's opinion.  I did want to mention that I don't think this pain came from how I slept (I could be wrong-that happens a lot! wink ).  But, if anything, I actually slept well-for me, anyway.  LOL-maybe I slept too well and now I'm being punished for it! tongue
