Pain that never goes away

Hello everyone, still getting used to my Fibro diagnose although have had symptoms for 6 years. I fell heavily on my elbow around the same time as my symptoms started. Had an x-ray but nothing broken and my GP said the muscle was badly bruised and would take a long time to heal. Fast forward 6 years and the pain is getting worse. The physiotherapist gave me some exercises to strengthen my shoulders but they haven't helped with the pain. I have recently started getting a similar pain in my left arm which has got me wondering if if is to do with having Fibro. So a question for you lovely people, does anyone have a Fibro pain in one part of their body that has lasted for years? (Constant pain not flare-ups)

Look forward to hearing from you xxx

  • Hi Soozy60

    I am so genuinely sorry to read that you are suffering and struggling in this way and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck with finding the answers that you are looking for.

    It is a very interesting question? My first recollection of Fibro pain was in my back, and this was a year before other pain and then getting my Fibro diagnosis. So, not sure if that helps you? A year after my diagnosis I had a bad fall and after an MRI I was told that I did not have a coccyx. By this time I had pain in just about my entire body. I do also have arthritis, and it has taken about 3 years to be able to distinguish the two for when I go to my GP.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Hi Soozy60! Have you ever heard of Emmett Technique? For injury like that it is brilliant. Any Muscle, joint, tendon pain if the practitioner is good you walk in with pain and out with none. I have had a painful muscle at the back of my shoulder. I saw the Chiropractor but to no avail. I went to see an Emmett practitioner with my shoulder and the problem was from something just about my waist on my back. She pressed a spot there and the pain came in my shoulder straight away. Then she noticed my gait wasn't right and I had to lie on the bed and she poked and press around my back and told me the problem there was the muscle that lined the pelvis. A bit more pressing on various spots and she said walk across the room and my hip and leg were moving freely where before it was tight and stiff. I am going this week for an MOT. Go online and find out if there is a practitioner in your area and give it a go. Worth every penny. No clothes come off it is quite amazing. I can't remember the man's name but his surname is Emmett and he is an Australian and comes to London from time to time to train the trainers. The lady I see is Judith Johnson and she is a trainer for Wales. Next year she is going to start training people in Emmett in Spain. Nothing to lose only something to gain. I hope this helps.

  • Thanks for that info Thankful I have never heard of the Emmett Technique. I will see if I can find a practitioner in my area. xxx

  • thanks i will see if i can find out if anyone near me that may knows about this thanks again all the best and hope you have a brill xmas

  • Hi soosy60

    I hurt my back in a few places ,was lifting rock in a new house about fourteen years ago, So I wracked my back, this has caused me to have big probs, Doc,s daaa! , told me bulging discs, I thought they were until January this year, there slipped discs, been out and worked , was told back then after an MRI that theire was no central potrusion so I was left to get on with it, and the pain, for years I have been suffering pain, not matter how many times I saw GP, they sent me to Physio, , been a sufferer for fourteen year with that, .

    I had been a customer Service Assistant up until three years ago when the pain became crucial Think the Fibro set in then , pins and needles, feet burning up as if they were on fire, and standing the majority off day I started to have this tightness at my bra strap ,at my back ,couldnt get comphy at all, itching , warm , pain , pins n needle, I would go and buy another bra, the bras I already had , I bought extensions for them, So for me it was there then my back then my neck , now all over

    Ken ,I hope you are getting some release from your pain, Now remember I have that ticket
