I have trouble with bending and stretching. I notice when I'm bent over for more that a few seconds that I get knots or spasm in my stomach, and I also feel tingling pulling feeling in my heel on my right side.
I was already at the point that you were speaking of. The hand weakness, myofacial pain, the sleeping with my arms up etc. I was just trying to find relief at work mostly. Every symptom you speak of I have had. My wrist hurt very badly, and I was told not to lean my arms or elbows on tables and chair arms, so I,ve had the arms taken off my chair @ work.
I,ve made other adjustments at work also, but to very little avail.
My fingertips on my right hand get so tender and tingly that I can hardly stand it.
Yes. Most definitely!! All that you describe. And then I have something like a frog that jumps from one end of my body to the next. They are sudden involuntary movements. I get jolts of thunder-like things that happen, and people look at me strange, even my family.
I tried to explain things from time to time, but they act like its brand new to them. My stomach is constantly going. You are not alone., I just feel stupid sometimes because it looks crazy to see.
You are right. I feel better when I sing, but I can't do it for more than a few moments at a time because my jaw, neck, throat and mouth get tired. I have to close my mouth and rest before I pick up where the song left off!!! :0
Don't have the answer to the latter half of your question, but I think there is some truth to it. Music takes your mind off of your situation. I listen all the time, even now at work all day.View Thread
Since I have been going to the pain clinic, I forgot to say that I am not on any narcotics. They almost totally change the meds that I was taking to what I am taking now. I was told the same thing, that narcotics don't work for fibro. No narcs for me. Hope this helps. It just hurt my heart to know that there are so many people suffering like me. Keep your head up and pray.
