  • I do not want to appear to diagnose you, but want to share a quick story.I have been in pain for several years. Chronic sinus infections, strep, etc.I had alot of pain in my pelvis area. Inside of my legs, around hip. I describedthe pain as I felt like butt bones were going to tear material on the examiningtable. Horrible aching. Chiropractor could not touch my upper back/shoulders orlower back. He sent me for MRI. I have L4, L5,S1, sponddlytis, they said advancedstage or stage III. I went to a Rhem. and he diagnosed Fibromyalgia. I have problems with things in my spine,but my pain was from the Fibromyalgia (FM). No blood test will give a diagnosis. To make a long story short, I just went through a local pain management center who specializes in FM. Physical therapy, massage, myofacial release, trigger point injections, gluten free diet (weight is falling off), and the support of staff that new I was hurting and acted like they cared!!! I was asked my pain level, and I said -5. Wow. Even if you don't think you have any part of FM. I urge you and others who read this post, get educated. It is a very misdiagnosed problem.I do hope you get some relief. Best wishes to you.
