  • Hi sweetdreams1234

    I am so sorry to read that you are still in so much pain and suffering so horrendously. I genuinely hope that you can find some resolution and relief to these issues.

    Motrin is a US / Canada brand name for Ibuprofen, so I do not know if you live in Canada or US or, are in the UK and this is just the brand name of your Ibuprofen? This is an anti-inflammatory drug that you should not take on an empty stomach or overdose with as it could be very dangerous. I do not know how much you are prescribed to take so I have pasted you a link to the Ibuprofen dosage page on NHS Choices, it will tell you how many mg you can safely take. But please do not take more than the prescribed dosage:

    I have also pasted you the NHS Choices information page on Ibuprofen, so you can read the types of pain it will address and check if it is right for what you are going through:

    I genuinely hope that you GP appointment goes well for you and that you can find some long term medications that will help you with your pain levels. I have also pasted you the link for FibroAction page on Fibro treatments:

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • I am also having severe neck pain and awful headaches. When I try to turn my neck, it makes a noise which I can only describe as 'like the noise make when you screw up a sheet of paper' if that makes any sense. I am well stressed at the moment due to having had my ESA stopped, without being given any information about it, and my application for appeal has been refused.

    I have been told that if my health has deteriorated, I can reapply for ESA, but the fact is, my health HAS deteriorated, so much so that I just don't have the energy to do anything about it.

    I am going to see CAB next month, as I am just too ill to be able to fight to get something done about it. I wish whoever it is who made this decision could spend 48 hours in my body, just so's they know exactly what fibromyalgia pain and disccomfort feels like. I am fortunate enough to have been awarded rent and council tax benefits due to losing my ESA, which has softened the blow slightly, but this whole business has stressed me out so much, I am having trouble doing ANYTHING on most days.

  • Hi goodenuff

    Just a tip ..I had one about an hour ago the head and neck pain and its exactly the same .I use tiger balm on the nape of my neck by my eats and across the forehead it really helps to relax the muscles still I feel a bit nauseous and not up to par actually I'm in fibro fog land and texting pardon any incorrect spelling ..but I'm relaxing on the couch and closing my eyes with tiger balm hope this helps off to rest I go.again .

    Take care of you.hugs Barb.
