I am so sorry that you are hurting so much. That is the bad thing about Fibro....the pain is in different parts of our bodies and sometimes, during flares everything is worse. Do you think your doctor could give you something stronger for pain? I would call & let them know how much pain you are in.
There is also a good thread 2nd one down, called Fibro 101 that would be good for you to read. There are alot of different things to try for pain. I use the stretching excercises during the day, when I am not in too much pain. I also use a heating pad, hot shower, or a warm bath in epsom salts. Another thing that sometimes helps is just to relax, although that is harder to do when you are hurting too bad.
I hope you are able to find relief soon. Please keep us posted and try your doctor. He should know how bad your pain is getting and at least maybe give you something stronger to help with your pain.
Good luck! Margie

Hi Lorna and Welcome!
My heart goes out to you and everything you are dealing with. It sounds like your pain is not being controlled, 95 percent of the time is too much to be dealing with on a day to day basis- severe pain can wear you down no matter how positive a person you are. Do you have a good Dr. and does he/she know that you are in this much pain and this depressed? Med changes possibly? You are not functioning, and there is nothing worse!
Having a support group is a tremendous help also, and you have come to the right place-
Nice to have met you, and keep posting, vent, vent, vent if need be, we will be here for you.
When I was at rock bottom every night I prayed I would die in my sleep as I couldnt deal with it and I was concerened at what I would do to myself. It took a long time but finally I got a doc who at least beleives although still has no idea of how severe the pain can be, at the same time I saw my second pain spec and he took me on. He put me a narcotoic patch and the pain eased the two thirds so between that and my doc meds I can function again. In Australia we have services that are almost free, people to take you if you cant drive ect. You need a doc and a pain spec. A rheumy wont give the meds although they do help alot of people but to me they just said excersize, hah. I also have arhtritis and the pain spec treats that as well. You need to somehow find the strength to try these avenues and it can take several times.If I hadnt recevied the help I shudder to think what would of happened to me.
all the best and feel free to contact me anytime sue2z
