Fibromyalgia

The rheumatologist I saw for it described it as a general misfire in your nerves. Your nerves tell you there is pain that is not truly there so although you feel generalized pain, there is nothing physically wrong with the joints or muscle groups that hurt. This is why they usually treat it best with anti-depressants or anti-convulsants.

My main problems were in my knees, hips and back. I took lyrica and then cymbalta for quite some time medicinally. I also wore these crazy shoes called Z-Coils that helped a lot when the meds didn't do the trick. I became functional again and was able to get off of all the fibro meds.

I was recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. My rhuemotologist said that fibro is pain in the tender points, joints, & widespread pain throughout the body. My feet hurt so bad when I first wake up. He asked about my feet before I brought it up.
