Over the past few weeks I've been feeling basically like shit (pardon the language), most of the problem being in my back and shoulders. Typically my mom can realign me pretty well, and it relieves some of the pain. She hasn't been able to realign me because my muscles are so tight for some reason, and I just end up in frustrated tears. She suggested that I go see a chiropractor to get a real alignment, and maybe they'll be able to give me some relief. I have never been to a chiropractor in my life. I don't know what to expect and this worries me. I have severe tender points along my spine and between my shoulder blades. My dog hates when mom pops my back because I'm usually screaming or crying in pain. So I'm worried about that happening at the chiropractor. I don't know how rough they get, or if this is even something I want to put myself through... There is a chiropractor that is close that says they know how to treat patients with fibro, but I'm still worried. I don't yet have a diagnosis.
Any stories from you guys? Does it hurt? What do they do? Did you get any relief?
