I’m having a hard time sleeping due to intense neck pain and tightness. What can I do? Lately I’ve been suspecting I might have FM but I’m still waiting for a rheumatologist appointment so any advice or ideas to bring more clarity to me would be so helpful

      Hello, my biggest pain points are my neck and shoulders. I just wanted to say that a heating pad and neck massager does sooth mine, also a Epsom salt bath sooths it, I was also put on savella for FM and this is day 4 for me and already feel a difference in the pain in my neck and shoulders. Keep your head up, and don't give up.

      Pre-doctor advice: have you tried sleeping flat without a pillow? About-doctor advice: I’ve found a pain specialist much more helpful than a rheumatologist but I get not every area has those. Mine put me on clonazepam to help with sleep and relaxing muscles (the lowest dose was enough to help me! So relieving!).

      Until you can be seen by a doc, all of the above will help (aside from the Rx) & I like arnica salves, tiger’s balm, magnesium, and valerian. Also CBD + turmeric (I prefer “garden of life” brand)
