    There is a good article in the above issue which I think everyone might be able to view....it was sent to me in an email and I was able to open it up and get to view it for free....so I hope each of you can also do this.


    Cervical Issues and FM*****studies have been done and they are connecting the cervical issues and FM....I know that a lot of us have neck and back issues....and I do know that due to my back pain I have to sleep in a recliner....just to keep my pain level down.

    I hope everyone will go out and read the article about this....there is some good information....

    IN GOD WE TRUST....MAY GOD BLESS AND GUIDE AMERICA....

    My personal exchanges are Vitamin D and Pain and Wrath of the Dragon....if you care to visit..

    Hi MiMi,

    Is there an address online for that article? I do not get their newsletters and couldn't find the specific article. Having that may help Dana respond.

    Is it Dana you're hoping to hear from, whose specialty is physical therapy?

    There is not an address that I can find....but I did do a forward online from my email address...I put it to your attention...so please be on the look out for it.

    Actually I think it was Nana B who thought I should share this info....I am not sure really who to direct it to....I guess anyone who might be able to possibly provide us with some input on the article.

    Thanks..

    Thanks MiMi.

    I can't find the article either even with the email you sent (thank you for that!) but did track some of it down on other sites:

    Cervical Spinal Stenosis

    Is there an association between cervical myelopathy and fibromyalgia?

    Are these along the lines of the article you read, MiMi?

    Sorry Caprice that you could not find the article..were you able to even open up the free issue....it is on next to the last page of the issue. I did forward it again....

    The title of the article is Cervical Spinal Cord Abnormalities & Fibromyalgia.

    It also shows a list of things which are common symptoms share by FM, Cervical Stenosis and
    Chiari Malformation.

    I was quite shocked at how the 3 of these have so much in common.

    The article is by Rae Marie Gleason.

    OK....try the above link. I think this is the article perhaps when it was first published.

    I hope everyone will be able to view it.

    Hi MiMi,

    Thanks for trying but it's a no go. I think it's designed that way and no need to send any more in email.

    Did you check the two links I provided to see if the info was the same?

    Either way, it's interesting.
