I am newly diagnosed fibromyalgia with positive ANA for Lupus. Anyways I have chronic pain with muscle tension in neck, shoulders, & back. Chronic migraines for over 12 years. I have been a stay at home Mom for 7years. Tried to go back to work a few months ago in my profession as Veterinary Technician. I came home after my shifts swollen painful joints on top of the muscle spasms along with low grade fever. Then neuropathy began now everyday in my feet. I am stiff when I wake up or sit for awhile. I tried Acupuncture yesterday. Today I could walk on my feet without burning & have range of motion in my shoulder & neck! Just sharing for others it may help.

Lemongirl, thanks for sharing. I wish I could try acupuncture or acupressure, but my insurance says no... The one thing they won't cover that I haven't tried. I remember when my first symptoms of fibromyalgia started, always with morning stiffness. Now it's hard to tell one thing from another or which one is clearing up: fibro, osteoarthritis, sjogrens, hypoparathyroidism... Hope you have great results with your therapy. And a pain free night of sleep! 🙏🌼
