How do you deal with back pain that is sharp when you lay down for bed at night?

I have tried sleeping on my sides, sitting up, or laying down and nothing seem to help with the sharp stabbing pain in my upper spine; right where the pressure points are located. I could use some ideas from you all on what helps you.

Gallbladder attack, fibro flare, or something more?

Gallbladder attack, fibro flare, or something more?

I was sitting at my kitchen table working a puzzle, when I got this severe pain that felt like it was my muscle right across the bottom of my ribcage. The pain radiated into my chest and back. It was hard to move and laying down was impossible. My mother in law suggested Tums, a hot beverage, and a heating pad. Did all that. After a little over an hour the pain went away in my stomach except for if I coughed or breathed too deep. It stayed severe in the back and… read more

I need a rheumatologist, preferably in Arizona

I need a rheumatologist, preferably in Arizona

I'm needing a rheumatologist now that I have another auto-immune disease. There are no specialist where I live. The Mayo Clinic in Phoenix does not accept Medicare(!). They told me to call the Mayo Clinic in Rochester "because it's a bigger facility"?? I've had little luck searching the reviews of rheumatologists in Arizona. Most of them have bad ratings and I already have a PCP who is lousy. It's imperative that I find one ASAP since I imagine it will take a couple… read more

How do you all deal with the isolation and rejection that comes with Fibromyalgia?

Every single friend and family member has dropped off. I have nobody who understands what I am going through at all so I get a lot of rejection and criticism.
