Hi there, I wanted to ask a question to fibro sufferers. I have fibro and at the moment I have excruciating back pain in an area that is not normally so bad. Now, I slept on a blow up bed on the floor on monday night (stupid i know -one of those I'm fine moments) and felt the pain the next day, it improved the day after that but came back with vengeance after that! I associated it with fibro and sleeping on the floor but the friday before that monday i felt I might have a UTI, hurts a little when I pee but there is no urgency or other typical signs. I have no fever. My whole body hurts like a flare and this back pain is really really bad. It is around the area of my right kidney. Now it is probably very likely to be fibro... but of course I have not gone to dr because i hate going and assumed it was fibro. Had i not had fibro I would have gone. Has anyone else had a kidney problem (stones, infection etc) and how (if they did) did they tell it apart from the fibro. We are so used to being in pain it is probably quite dangerous to assume everything is fibro! I was just looking for other people's experiences with telling a new problem from the fibro. And whether any one else had a similar experience and what the outcome was.
