1)  All day my spinal cord in the lower back has been twanging like a plucked harp string. It really feels like it's vibrating. It feels curiously like an interior itch of some sort, or like a buzzing hive. I have never felt this before so I'm wondering if anyone else gets that? (This one is high on my "am I crazy or is it fibro?" checklist!)
 
2) Has anyone ever heard about taking collagen as a supplement? I read something online yesterday (I can't find where, now) that fibromites may be lacking collagen, since it is what coats the nerve endings; lack of it might cause the inappropriate pain response. That sounded actually sensible to me, so I'm curious if anyone has experience with collagen supplementation?
 
Thanks!

LittleNeck,I've never had the twanging sensation, but I have degenerative arthritis and bone spurs in my spine. That was
dx'd about 15 years ago. I know the back pain is bad especially since my job all 8 hours are on my feet on concrete.
 
   I have a thread here called "herbal relief from pain". I use bio-sil for callogen rebuilding, super cissus rx for
repairing muscles, tendons and ligaments;  and malic acid to detox the body. This trio is so good that I've only
had to take 2 doses of reg painkillers in the last month. For about the first 2 months I used them along with
the herbals until enough damage was repaired that I didn't need them so much. The 3rd month I only needed
a few doses and this last month I've only had 1 "flare". The callogen is rebuilding and bone spurs are shrinking.
I still have some pain but it's more controled with the super cissus (has a built in painkiller).  If I hadn't lived this, I
too would wonder if it was true.....IT IS!!!
 
Good Luck and I hope your back gets better..
