      Hey, it sounds like terrible back pain… if the usual medication for fibro/ pain killers don’t help, I think you should go to the ER.

      i have no meds specifically for my fibro, just antidepressants and a medication for ovarian pain but that’s it. i do exercise and pt every week but nothing is helping unfortunately :( i think tomorrow my mom and i are gonna call around and see what my doctors say to do.

      Hi! Are you treating your Fibro with any meds? Any exercise? Maybe you should see your doctor and make an adjustment in your therapy plan. Besides that, if the pain is terrible as you describe and can’t be treated with pain relievers you shouldn’t suffer and definitely go to the ER

      Definitely go to the er if it persists or you need to rock back and forth to distract you from the pain.
