I  have "crashed" big style in fact having difficulty typing. but am in pain like never before.

a bit concerned. cant move my legs, pain in my calf muscles, shins and ankles. also pain across my shoulder blades and the top of  legs. really bad  i just want to cry x

my husband seems to be ignoring me as well - not taking me seriously, still leaving jobs for me to do when I cant do anything. arms hurting now

 I'm so sorry you're feeling this bad. I have days when I scream because of the pain in my arms. I've been massaging oil into my arms and legs ( coconut butter is good and easily absorbed). I take paracetamol as the only pain killer I can tolerate? There are no magic answers you have to find what works for you - give the massage a go, you will feel that you are doing something positive to help.  hug

So sorry you are in pain , cry as a FM sufferer I can empathise.

Glad you managed a warm bath that would be my first port of call as  I find it can help and will sometimes add a few calming essential oils to help me relax or Epsom salts , the magnesium always seems to calm aching limbs.

A heat wrap that you can heat in the micro also helps as it mould to the part of the body that hurts or failing that a hot water bottle. ' fraid massage seems to make me worse , its lovely at the time but I am so much worse for a few days after as the aches & pains come back with a vengence always put it down to a release of toxins from the muscles

IF it gets worse or the pain meds don't do the job , think about phoning out of hours . Even if they can only give you something until you see your GP its better than suffering n silence.

Hope you feel better soon  fingerscrossed

I bought a TENS machine and it has worked really well for me especially on my neck and shoulders.
