Back Problems board


I've been in pain for over 12 years, mostly back pain, then it esculated to my neck, my knee, then my whole left side. My muscles are constantly on fire from my fingertips to my toes. I get shooting pains, burning, numbing, you name it! My joints ache, etc.. Now my right side hurts. My chest feels tights. Burning everywhere, it's so annoying. My doctor finally..after alot of trial and error with medications thinks I may have fibromyalgia..along with my other back and neck problems. I'm taking Cymbalta, Flexeril, Soma, Naproxen, and Nortriptyline. The only thing that takes the edge off is the Soma, but doesn't "cure" me. Does anyone else have this with a mixture of back problems that takes something that actually works?
I want to go back to work, but I know I can't. I'm constantly tired and in pain.
Help!! Any advice or similiar situations appreciated.
