I went to my GP who felt acupuncture would help. Apparently fibromyalgia patients normally respond well. I was very sceptical - after all how could sticking a few pins in me help? - but it did! I can honestly say after 4 sessions I am no longer walking with a stick! While it has not been a miracle cure - I still have FM *sigh* - BUT it has improved the quality of my life, so much so that I am considering going back to work! That will be the true test I feel!!

Anyway, just wanted to pass on some good news and hope that it may help others :)

I was diagnosed a few months ago. I'm still working and trying to keep on going. Recently I have been experiencing low back pain. I can't stand for any longer than a few minutes before my back starts complaining. Any sort of distance irritates it too. It's so bad it's like having toothache in my back. I'm really struggling with things like getting from the bus stop to work. The pain is getting me down, I feel like crying most of the time with it. :cry:

I too get lower back pain, mainly on the right hand side. It turns into cramp when I sit still for long, such as driving. This came on as one of the first symptoms I had. It also hurts badly in bed, and I have to turn/change positions regularly to relieve it. That always helps with a good night's sleep - not!!

You need to get it checked out, if only to identify if it is muscular or a problem with the spine, so further investigations can be done.

I think you should get any new symptom checked out because it might not be related to the Fibro, you also e to watch out for doctors just blaming everything on Fibro, they need to realise that we do get ill with other things too :-)

Thank you. I will def get it looked into further. I finished my acupuncture and while it was fab, now that it has stopped I feel I am on a downward slope back to where I was - oh well, back to work next week after 3 months off, then we shall really see how well I am.... :)

I wake up every morning with excruciating lower back pain. We blamed mattress so bought new bed...made no difference. My Mri scan showed no spinal defects. I'm also claustrophobic so Mri was horrendous I couldn't face that again. I've just learned gradually to live with it. :evil:
