Any Fibro pain tips?

Jan 24, 2016 6:37 AM

I have had fibromyalgia for a few years now but these last few weeks it's almost unbearable. It hurts to sit. It hurts to walk. It hurts to lay down. I can't get much more then an hour of sleep at a time right now before I have to get up and move because my hip starts hurting so bad. I have found a few things that help with the milder pains but does anyone have any tips for the stabbing joint pain? Especially in the hip.

I would have to say that if you can get some compound cream from your doctor with something hat helps nerve pain you should get some relief. It doesn't work for me because my body doesn't absorb the medication but it might help you! My spinal cord stimulator helps my legs with that kind of pain currently and I'm getting a new one that will stimulate my back and arms this year since it really works! I hope you figure out something that helps your nerves! I wish you painless days and send you air hugs :)

Thank you so much meganblondie. I currently have a prescription strength cbd rub that helps a little but I have a similar problem to my body not absorbing them like it should. Its ok for daily pains though
