What Kind Of Pain Do You Experience?

What Kind Of Pain Do You Experience?

I'm newer to fibro and was wondering if people can be more specific when they say "pain". I'm having a hard time accepting this diagnosis. I have sharp- bee string like pains/ needle picks, burning, very heavy arms and legs and sore muscles. Tingling/vibrations. Aching hands/feet/ shoulders, wrists. Its just so many symptoms!!

Has Anyone Tried Marijuana For Pain/sleep? And Not The Medical Kind...

Has Anyone Tried Marijuana For Pain/sleep? And Not The Medical Kind...

Just wondering if anyone has tried marijuana to help with the pain and to help them sleep at night. I'm not talking about the medical kind! I have NEVER used recreational drugs but I am willing to try a few puffs of a joint to see if it helps. Any input? NO judgement please!

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

I am like Jenn Cain, although I don't do on work days. We've also experimented and made our own butter and oil for cooking/baking and salve for putting on those painful joints and muscles.

First Day With Magnetic Bracelet And So Far I Give It 2 Thumbs Up

First Day With Magnetic Bracelet And So Far I Give It 2 Thumbs Up

I don't have a question. I just wanted to post that I was skeptical but bought a magnetic bracelet and wore it all day today for the first time and I swear I have had a very good day pain wise! It can certainly be a placebo effect or that I am just having a good day, but for some reason I feel relatively pain free and very energetic today. More than usual! I will continue to wear it and see if I see a noticeable difference by wearing it over an extended period of time! I am also going to wear it… read more
