  • FM can cause pain in any area of the body. I hope you feel better soon. Have you followed up with your Doctor regarding this?

  • I have an appointment with the rheumatologist on Feb 2nd. If it gets any worse to the point I can't walk I am going to the ER.

  • Good! your appointment is not too far off.

    FM flares can be hard to control. I would also recommend joining a FM support group because it is beneficial to be able to talk to others that are compassionate. Many people do not understand FM and think it is "in the mind of the patient" when it is not. Best of luck.
