I went to dr to get pain pills for my back pain.I had to see a diff dr though cuz mine was gone.he said my back pain was most likely fibromyalgia and gave me muscle relaxer to take at bedtime for 7 days. My mom has fibromyalgia and said muscle relaxers don't work for that.I took with first one last night no luck although today has been better. I'm not finding anything on fibromyalgia and back pain tho....what do u think. I usually take percocet and am better but he wouldn't give me pain pills.

Actually, muscle relaxers have been found to be an effective treatment for many FM patients. You might find a combination of muscle relaxer and special back stretches and exercises to be quite helpful in the long run. Each of us is unique in what we find to be helpful. I hope you and your mom can lean on each other for moral support.
With Compassion,
Margaret
