FMS symptoms, besides pain meds??
I've been having fibromyalgia symptoms for the past 4 days- neck, left shoulder, back of head, band across my head from 1 temple to the other, down my spinal cord. I haven't dealt with fibro symptoms in several years and I can't remember what I can do to relieve my pain and stiffness.
I've been taking Lortab (Hydrocodone with acetaminophen) and/or Ultracet, aspirin, using a topical analgesic oil rub and a moist heat wrap. I'm also stretching. I've considered the chiropractor and massage therapist just haven't made appointments yet.
I can't remember what to do to relieve my pain and stiffness, and frankly my grumpiness with it. Can someone give me some suggestions of anything natural I can do that I haven't thought of? I don't necessarily want to keep taking the Lortab as I'm building up a tolerance and having to take more to get the same relief. It's just the only thing working. I would appreciate any input.
