Hi, Calla, and welcome! You have already been given good advice. I just wanted to pop in and welcome you.
Be sure to check out the Fibro 101 thread...the second thread on the forum. There are links to good information about fibromyalgia and you will learn a lot there.
Have you tried a gentle massage? That helps me a lot. Here is a link to help you find a good massage therapist in your area if you are interested.
But, speak with your doctor about your back first to make sure there are no disc problems.
If there are no disc problems, there is a good stretch for those muscles that my massage therapist gave me. You bend at the waist and then swing your arms...any direction and every direction. This has helped me.
I'm happy that you joined our family. Keep asking quesitons and we will try to help you. I hope to hear more from you soon.
