- DX FIBRO
Hello, my name is Pam and I have been suffering with severe neck and shoulder pain for the past 5-6 yrs. I was diagnosed by a pain specialist with cervical facet arthritis which was treated with physical therapy, several combinations of meds, all of which have provided minimal relief. I work in a hospital and have constant cold air blowing on me all day which causes my shoulder muscles to spasm very bad. I decided to see a rheumatologist recently who diagnosed my condition as fibromyalgia (pain specialist never even checked me for tender trigger points). I was wondering if anyone else has cold sensitivity and what they do to combat it. I wear a windproof jacket under my scrubs which helps, but most evenings I suffer with muscle spasms until I go to sleep (only after taking Ambien).
