I have been in constant pain for over 15 yrs now. It seems like it just gets worse as time goes on. I have been told for over 10 yrs now that my doctpr suspects Fybromyalgia but wont ever give me a diagnois. I am tired all he time sometimes I cant even get out of the bed. I have worked for over 30 yrs and soon will be ready for retirement so Im not a stranger to work. If it wasnt for having to pay the bills Id probably not even want to get out of bed because of hurting so much.15 yrs ago when my 15 yr old son tapped me on the shoulder and I hollowered at him saying to quit that hurt. my son said "mom, I bearly touched you." I continued to feel pain and different areas of my body like my shoulders, back,legs, arms and buttocks started hurtin with the slightest touch. I can lay down or be just sitting or standing in one spot for as short a time as 20-30 minutes and Im in so much pain I cant stand it. My muscles and joints also have gotten to were they feel so stiff and can hardly pick my legs up sometimes after Ive been working or getting up from sittng after a little while. I also have this constant pain in my legs. I ask my son sometimes to press on certain places on my leg and it gives me a little relief then it starts hurting again. Over this time period I have had so many pains in my body to start hurting that I dont know wether they are different aliments or just pains from one problem with different symtoms. Please tell me what might be wrong with me or tell me where I can go to get some answers as my current doctors office wont give me any answers.View Thread
