I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 7 and a half years ago. In the last 3 years (since my daughter was born) I have had chronic back pain. I found out 2 weeks ago that I have a vertabrae that is out and has worn down to half it's size. They are sure the disk is also worn down but could not see it on the x-ray due to inflamation. I have no insurance and my regular doctor doesn't want to see me anymore because I have not had an MRI or been through physical therapy. I cannot afford either. I have tried chiropractic, accupuncture, massage,excercise and numerous homeopathic remedies. I am at the end of my rope and thought someone might have some tips. I didn't mention, I have a 3 year old daughter and I am a stay at home mom. Having to lift her, bath her, etc. makes my days hard. I love her to pieces and I try to hide it from her but she comes up and asks me if my back is hurting and tells me she doesn't want me to leave her. That gets me crying! I feel like a basket case and prior to this, I was the happiest person around. I could always find the humor in situations and didn't let things get me down. Now, everyday is a struggle. Any advice?
