Answer by monkey
i have a family member who suffers from that.

she has sore muscles all around her body, but especially on her back.
she cant walk around a shopping centre for really long periods of time because she gets tired and sore.
she sometimes gets chest pains that are in the same position as the pain on her back (except at the front of her body, if you get that)

How do I take myself off of pain killers?

Question by Holly S: How do I take myself off of pain killers?
I’m a lupus patient I also have fibromyalgia, I’ve been on some form of pain medicine for 12 years, I’m now 14 weeks pregnant, and I really want to get off of them… I do not.abuse them, and if I can, depending on my pain, some days I only take one at night time instead of the prescribed 4x day… Any suggestions?

Best answer:

Answer by hey!
Try taking 1/2 the dose every other day for a few days but the regular dose in between. Once you’re ok with that, cut back to 1/2 the dose for several consecutive days. Then try cutting that in half. Wean yourself off them gradually.

Q&A: What is the Pain my Mother’s Feeling?

Question by Raedwald: What is the Pain my Mother’s Feeling?
My mother is 58 years old, years past menopausal stage, and at least a couple of times a week, she gets these widespread pains, first in the back of her head, then across both breasts, and even on her knees. She’s been to many doctors, none of whom have found anything wrong. She had an MRI on her head–no problems. They said it’s not her heart, not cancer, not anything; and her symptoms are not consistent with fibromyalgia from what I’ve researched. Has anyone experienced anything like this or known someone who has, OR has any idea what is going on? I would greatly appreciate any help.
