    Odd update

    I have a difficult time writing short notes. Obviously not a great TWEETER LOL So my doctor ordered a full spine MRI done in 3 parts. The MRI is the newest, latest greatest. The tech was compassionate and said that she would do her best to get the whole thing done in 2 hours or there-a-bouts. "...

    NUCCA Chiropractor Results Visit 1

    :idea: Think about going to a NUCCA chiropractor (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association). Bottom line: if your spine and body is misaligned, your brain, nerves, and blood circulation are not optimal. Pain is a common result. I've been a FM patient since 1998. Needless to say, I've had...

    Hello from Indiana

    Hi, I'm new here, joined today; new to the site but NOT new to fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed around 2003 but I think I had it much longer than that because of symptoms I had for 5-6 years before I was formally diagnosed. I went into it full blown and had what I consider to be the absolute...

    Inflatable Cervical Collar for Neck Pain

    I've had neck pain for years, after an injury when I was 12-years-old. My doctor back then gave me a cervical collar to wear, and it helped with my pain. That collar got lost in a move, and I was subsequently re-injured, so my pain is even worse now. These days I do a lot of stretches, as well...

    Success with Disability?

    Hi. My Fibro is severe enough now that going back to work (after cervical fusion with complications) is not possible. Has anyone been successful in being approved for disability payments? Any pointers when trying to get through the process? Any thoughts are appreciated.

    This makes me doubt fibromyalgia

    At times like this is when I don't think I have fibromyalgia. I was visiting with someone at their house and my feet couldn't touch the floor in the chair I was sitting in. My feet started burning, then my legs starting burning and aching. I was fine before I got there. I have told the doctors...

    Fibromyalgia disbelief

    I haven't been diagnosed yet, but I have a referral to a rheumatologist this coming Tuesday. My referral states: possible arthritis or fibromyalgia. I have been asked by friends and family before if it could be fibromyalgia. Every time I looked it up, I didn't think so. Mainly because I don't...
