I have Fibromyalgia. I don't know if its the same thing or related to Polymyalgia or not, but it sounds the same anyway. Like you, I would like to know what people do to help. I have to take pain meds regularly to be pain free. I can't just take them "when needed". I've tried that and it was too many trips to the ER for pain shots and sometimes hospitalization to make sure I was ok because I have a heart condition too, which is another pill. Fortunately, I get care through the VA because I'm a disabled veteran and I thank God for the healthcare. I don't know if this helps you or not, but I understand. I don't have healthcare either and can't afford it anyway. I thank God for the VA. I've received so much that I've needed over the years, including surgeries. Maybe if your a veteran or a spouse of a veteran, you can go to the VA and get healthcare? If this helps you, then I'm glad I could help. I'll pray for you too.View Thread
Inflammation has something to do with heart conditions? what would that be? I have a heart condition that requires that I take medication to regulate my heart rate. If I don't take that little pill, its ambulance time and ER hospitalization. its happened to many times before.View Thread
I have Fibromyalgia and I have chronic back problems. I have arthritis in my low back also. Anyone out there know good treatments for back problems? Unfortunately the low back affects the whole body, but mine affects my lower half of my body. I've done acupuncture, physical therapy, pool therapy, traction on my low back, occupational therapy, epidural injections more than once, nerve blocks, exercises at home for years, many that I can't remember. I've done every therapy for low back problems that my doctor knows of and still I have back problems and pain. I also see a mental health doctor to help me deal with the depression too. I have a heart condition that I HAVE to take pills for to keep my heart beating right even. I have sciatica pain that goes down both legs. My hips lock nights and I can't get out of bed. I live alone and don't have any help when I have pain and have to get up myself to get pain meds when my hips are locked and i can't get out of bed. You talk about hard! Anyone have any suggestions? I'm open to anything that can help with any of this, I would appreciate it. I admit I have alot of health issues to deal with. I'm married but my husband is in a nursing home, so I have to deal with this all alone with no support or help at home. Help if anyone knows anything.View Thread
