spine pain

Postby ginag1985 » Fri Feb 14, 2014 6:50 pm

Hi I'm new here.I havn't been diagnosed with fibro yet,but I'm concerned its what I'm suffering with. It started with pain in my ribs and breast bone and on my back and shoulders,they really hurt to touch.doctor said it was muscle,then I started with pains all over my spine, really tender to touch in places. doctor said muscle again.my question is can fibro effect the spine,I've had a look at the 18 hot spots I do have a quite a few but they don't cause a lot of pain, only when pressure put on. its my spine that hurts the most so not sure if its fibro I've got or not,also been suffering with headaches deppression anxiety ibs symptoms.thanks x

Hi. I'm new on here too but have suffered from acute Fibromyalgia for approximately 15 years. The best advice that I can give is to ask your doctor to refer you to see someone at the hospital. A lot of doctors are still not understanding what fibromyalgia is and how it affects sufferers. A referral can be the best way of finding out what is wrong.

:cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave: and :welcome: to our little bit of cyber heaven :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing: :bear-dancing:

I've moved you into here with this being your intro post as it's the most suitable board :cow-wave: :cow-wave: :cow-wave:

FM isn't like something such as arthritis which can affect and harm areas/joints of the body. FM can affect all the muscles and soft tissues around the body, which, depending on what area is affected, can make it feel like a joint is being targeted. Wrt your spine, it is possible that FM is affecting the muscles etc around that area, which then makes it seem like your actual spine is being attacked.

With what you have said about looking at the 18 hot spots, I'm guessing that you've been looking at body maps of tender points in relation to FM :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: These 18 pairs of tender points generally don't feel too painful until pressure is applied to them, and when it is, even the slightest amount applied can feel like someone is stabbing you in the area.

Has FM been suggested as a possible reason for what you have been experiencing symptom~wise, or has Dr Googly pointed you in our direction when you asked him about your symptoms???

Hi. I have fybromalgia and the worst pain I get everyday is in my neck and all of my spine. It's gets stiff. Swells up in the middle of my back more towards upper back. Can straighten my back. The pain travels into my chest. Ribs and tummy area. I even find breathing difficult. I can describe the pain as if there are pins embedded in my spine. And there is very sharp pulsating pain. I've had a bad day today. I can feel the pain in my chest and back of the upper arms and sweeping of the elbows. I'm not happy today.

Your symptoms sound virtually identical to mine and I am diagnosed with Fibromyalgia.
It all started with pain & stiffness in my spineband then spread to other areas over about 4 years.
Hope this helps. :)

I'm going to mention it to my doctor next week and see if they can put me in.touch with someone who deals with this,I just want to know once and for all what's going on,I suffer with health anxiety so all these pains I have I'm turning in to bad things,the pains in.my ribs and back I thought it could be lung cancer,the pain in my spine I thought maybe a tumor the pains in my hips I thought cancer,the change in bowel habbits I thought bowel cancer,its driving me crazy that I'm backwards and forwards to the doctors and they just say I don't know what it is,the pain in my spine dosnt hurt unless I touch it apply pressure,its in.2 or 3 places along my spine,is this what it can feel like.I really hope the doctors can point me in the right direction

Hi and :welcome: to the forum, you have had some good advice especially from Fluppypuffy so I cant add any more except to reiterate you need to go back to your doc and ask the question
