Hi all .Im 36, male .painter and decorator. I am new to this forum. I have been in pain for 4 years . I ache from my neck to my feet. have seen osteopaths,chiropractors, chinese herbalist,massagers. had 11 acupuncture sessions,epidural .back last year had a private mri scan . See a consultant with my results,he said there was nothing there to be concerned about, went back to doctors for a second opion ,she said the same . So ive kept taking the meds tramadol,diclofenca,paracemtamol. I find brisk walking helps and swimming. have seen another consultant last week with my mri scan results ,and he has said ive got 2 slipped disks and fibromyalgia. So I found this website , Please can anyone advise me on any help with this syndrome ? Is there a cure ? what helps you people ? Thank you in advance.

Hi Legend

and :welcome: to the forum I've moved your post into here as you will get more answers. This condition affects everyone differently and therefore what works for one person won't necessarily work for another :yikes: Such as you say brisk walking helps you but for me I cant walk very far at all and if I try to push myself I cant move the next day. If I have something planned then I pace myself and rest up before the event and understand that I will need to rest after it.

There is no known cure as the condition is not understood, but that said some people have spontaneously improved to the point of being pain free, lots do not and of those who do improve some will relapse :dunno: :dunno: so on the whole its really mostly about managing your condition and finding what works for you

Anyway I hope you find some relief and that we can be of some use to you over time :hugs:

:welcome: to the forum Legend. :wave:

There is so many different symptoms to fibro and it takes a lot to get your head around it.
Having a GP who understands fibro is a great help as there are still lots out there that dont believe in fibro.

Managing your pain can be a long journey as there are lots of different meds to try so dont give up if yours dont work.
There is no cure for fibro so try to get your pain under control the best you can.

Fatigue is another symptom and can knock you for six, learn to listen to your body.
Learn to pace your body, little steps at a time.

Have a read around the forum and any questions just ask. :wave:
