I am so upset, confused, disgusted, and I just wanna SCREAM right now!!!! In fact, I did scream a few times already!! I was diagnosed with Fibro and Myofascial Pain syndrome this past February. I was in a horrific aotomobile accident involving a semi-truck, and started to develop fibro symptoms about a year and a half later. For 15 months thereafter I had fibro symptoms, but wasn't diagnosed right away. To make a long story short, I thought I was managing my daily pain pretty well, until last night. I have incorporated natural methods, tramadol, massage, hydrotherapy, nutricionals, physical therapy etc., into a weekly regimen. I had gotten my daily pain levels down to a 4-5. I recently returned to work and I was managing the pain, until last night it shot up to a 7-8 without any warning. I know it won't last forever, but it sure does suck when your pain level rises like that!! I have heating pads over my body and took extra tramadol, so it's finally beginning to take the edge off. Thanks for allowing me to vent!!
