  • just had quick look lnz and tbh, it scared me a bit, so will wait to see what doctor says. I get so scared of getting bed ridden again, of ot being able to play wit my grandchildren etc, Half my problem is admitting that I do have this condition.x

  • sorry hun ,didnt meen to scare you ,hugs xxxx

  • Hi Debs yes i have this pain in my neck been suffering all week, my physio gave me some exercises to do but still not good, I bought one of the wheat bags you warm in the microwave does help a little, I also have the problems with the burning sensation in my legs and my feet at times feels like i am walking on hot coals, The thing with Fybro is we get so many different problems. yet every time we get tested for something it comes back negative, I am sure at times they think it's all in our head, more understanding of this painful condition would be helpfull, hope you feel better soon take care hugs sent xx

  • hi it sounds very much like me i have had a mri scan on the base of my neck showing a bulging disc but your symptoms sound the same as mine i have tried physio but symptoms still persisting get them to do an mri scan on you.

  • I've also been having more or less of the same symptoms. My neck swells up too and I have pain in my shoulders. I recently had my MRI scan results back and thank

    God its nothing serious as I thought it was. However, the scan showed the muscles thickened surrounded by a lot of fatty tissue. I've been told its due to stress and anxiety and It can get bigger or smaller.

    Don't know if this sounds familiar to anyone.

    Soft hugs n love x
