I do not have Fibromyalgia, but I DO have pain in my knees that BURNS like fire!
Have you been to a Dr. to confirm you have Fibromyalgia? If so, then he should refer you to a pain management Dr. However, you may need to wait about six months before a pcp doctor can refer you... so it depends on if you have been diagnosed, gone through the whole x-ray, MRI, bone density test, muscle tests, etc, etc. If I were you and did NOT have a pain doctor, then I would ask my doctor for some form of pain medication. It could be you only need some Ibuprofen for inflammation, but you definitely need to consult your doctor, or at least a pharmacist. Don't medicate yourself before asking... you may do MORE harm. Sorry for your pain... if your back burns as bad as my knees do, then I truly understand how you get to the point you just CANT take it anymore. I did things I am not proud of, but now I have gone through all the p's and q's, and am on pain mgmt now. It is a long process, but now I actually feel almost normal again, like I did BEFORE the Graves Disease ruined my bones and teeth, among other things. Take care and GOOD LUCK. I feel your pain! I have osteoarthritis in MY lower and upper back too, and sometimes I cannot even get UP in the morning until I have my meds in my system. Let me know what happens to you. The people here are GREAT so far, and have been VERY supportive to me even after all I went through before I got INSURANCE! Talk about real suffering... not having ANYTHING to take... well, I cried alot. Now I am getting my life back again. Hope you get what you need to stop the hurting.
