I am working with a pain counselor. Her college wrote a book called "Master your Pain" by Jill B. Fancher, PhD. It has a work book in it and it explains in detail how to use it. It is also written in easy language so you can understand what she is saying.
My pain clinic Dr. had me buy "Master your Pain Before it Master's You" last summer an I really didn't understand a lot of it.
The counselor I am working with is teaching me reaction tec. that are in the book. We are recording them so I can do them at home without having to read the book while I am doing them.View Thread
My FIbro started when I hit puberty. I had these horrible Migraine's an I felt sick all the time. It hurt to be touched. My lf hip was in so much pain all the time. Then after i had my Daughter i started having these debilitating lower back pain's no one could figure out what was wrong until i saw my chiropractor and described what i'd been going through all youth. He then told me about Fibro and said to talk to my Arthritis Dr. and see if he agreed. He said it was a revealingly new finding there was no treatment. Now 20 some yrs later I've lost a lot of weight an went on Lyrica I don't know if it's helping or not I still have chronic pain.View Thread
