EDITED---Fibromaylgia

Anyone have this? What causes it and what are the symptoms? Do you have just pain in certain areas or all over? What can be done to help relieve the pain?

Thank you ladies you have all given me sound and helpful advice which is going to make it hard making a best answer choice

  • My doctor does think that I have it, it's not certain. Im not sure what causes it, you can research online, I have pain all throughout my back, your doctor can put you on anti depressants bc I do know fibromaylgia has to do with the nerve receptors it can help with pain I know it does for me. Other things that have helped me is massage therapy (deep tissue) or acupuncture I have not tried it yet.

  • I don't know how to beat it. I heard diet, massage, medication, exercise. You are not alone. I feel like crap right now because of it. They say they don't know what causes it. I think stress adds to all bad things.

  • It's an all encompassing issue. If you are concerned go to your dr and read up about it as much as you can.
