    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    After struggling with Fibro. for 23 yrs., I've discovered that anything you try could have a different result each time. I've have over 9 Massage Therapists, and can count on one hand how many times I've benifited from the massage. But the times I did respond, it was a great relief. The majority of the times, I'd start hurting all over like the flu, not being able to touch my back to the carseat, my skin hurt so bad. You just about have to try, and hope it helps. You'll know right off, whether to continue or STOP !!! I now have an implanted morphine pump for the pain. It's been a struggle also. The external pump trial proved to help the pain 98%. Once the pump was implanted with a catheter interally routed to my spinal fluid, it didn't help to that degree, yet it has helped enough to keep it in. Maybe it would help some of you, who are suffering tremendously. Talk to your Pain Dr./Anesthesiologist who is the professional who does the pump implant. You can read about it by looking up "Medronic Morphine Pain Pump". Best of Luck to you all !
