    Hi... I've been experiencing knee pain with most of my activities. Even while in bed it will come. I have fibromylagia as well. It is understood that the stage 2 knee pain - mild is considered normal for 52 years old. My question is that why do I have so much pain that i don't have modrate or servere stage of this change!? My doctor thinks it is from fibromyalgia..

    Have you told your doctor just how much pain your are experiencing? Has he/she given any indication as to why your stage has not changed as your pain has increased? This overview on fibromyalgia pain may be helpful to you. It describes what fibro pain can feel like and explains fibro tender points and the impact it can have on your life. You might compare the information in the article to what you are experiencing, and then use these 12 tips for coping with fibromyalgia to hopefully minimize your pain and lessen the change of triggering your fibro symptoms.
