Hi Fibro family,
I haven't posted in awhile. I have been seeing a physical therapist which I don't believe is helping at all. They did show me a couple of different stretching exercises to help me with my neck, and back pain. This is just a temporary relief. I still keep doing the exercises that I received here at this website which help a lot. Oh, has anyone ever worked out with an exercise ball? Just the stretching exerices?
My question today is... does anyone else have severe neck pain where you just can't seem to hold your head up and and while sitting on the sofa any pressure whether it is a pillow or anything applied to the area makes the pain worse? Also I'm having severe shoulder and back pain.... that goes from my lower back somedays to just the right side... on my shoulder blade and down the ribcage. Is anyone else experiencing any of this.
I havn't ever been to a bone doctor.... but I've had MRIs of my neck, thoracic and lumbar areas and have found all types of problems with cervical stenosis, scoliosis, arthritis, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease and osteophytes. Should I go and see an Orthopedic doctor to assess all of these problems? Could all of this pain be associated with just the Fibro, or could it also be from the bone problems? All I know is I am so miserable.
I wish I had access to a swimming pool... I'm sure this would also be helpful for the pain. At least that's what the PT said.
I am in terrible pain today. Please say a prayer for me. Thank you.
My heart goes out to all of you who suffer from this horrible disease.
Hugs to Everyone!
