Is it chronic pain or fibromyalgia?

Aug 24, 2015 3:02 PM

I have this constant pain in my shoulders, neck, arms all the time. Some days worse then others. Feels like a burning and achy feeling.

Aug 24, 2015 3:14 PM

Are you dropping things? Any pain in elbow or on top front of shoulders? Is neck pain just below where neck joins body?

Aug 24, 2015 3:22 PM

OMBILL I have all the above.I have Syringomyelia, Syrinx, Fibromyagia, Osteoarthritis.

I have had 4-3/4 hours of extensive surgery on my right hand, plus carpal tunnel on it twice. Carpal tunnel once on left hand. Both ulnar nerves (funny bone) has been cleaned and moved out of the elbow up into my inside forearm. Still having strength issues, but don't drop things and tremors are reduced. I have fibro, CPS, CFS, diabetic nerve pain in feet and have have vertebrae fused in low back with rods and hardware. Have a neurologist do nerve conduction studies on your arms especially, and other tests run on the muscles.

There is pain in my shoulders all the time.. I'm not dropping things though. I don't have carpel tunnel cause my mom just had surgery for that and I didn't have any of this symptoms

Could still be ulnar nerve entrapment. That's your funny bone nerve, it can cause pain in shoulder because it branches off the spine, runs through the shoulder and down into arm. Nerve conduction studies will reveal any damage. I still have shoulder and arm pain, but less of it and that's very important to me.

Peachee I get majorly sore in my shoulders and neck right up to my ears at the back of my head, my back and legs. I have Bursitus in my shoulders and fibromyalgia. I wonder if u could have Bursitus in your shoulders?🌸

I have syringomyelia and chronic pelvic pain with a few other things thrown in for good measure... 😜 I can't feel the heat from water on back but have full sensation on my front and I also get a burning, aching feeling at the back of my neck and throughout my right shoulder and often behind my knees. I was referred to a psin clinic for my chronic prlvic psin/allodynia therefore they won't address my spinal, lower back, neck or shoulder pain. Finding the medical system in Australia very frustrating at the moment. This morning I was woken up at 4 by nightmares and a psin level of about 8 out of 10 and absolutely exhausted. It is Saturday here thankfully so I have taken some pain meds and hoping they kick in soon so I can get some relief and some more sleep. Two hours of nightmares doesn't count as a good night's sleep in my books...

It seems like cronic pain syndrome is associated with arthritis, bone joint issues. Fibromyalgia associated with tissue, muscle, ligaments, tendons...basically not bone/joint issues. I am diagnosed with both and a whole grocery list of things.

It gets complicating. I am working on headings and sub headings of issues a lot of issues cause other things so I can understand the process.
