Hey all, I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to what might be of benefit for my spinal pain? The pain can exist at any part of the spine, but is worst at the very bottom area where tailbone and hips meet, and quite high up the top of the back. The pain can be quite sharp and last hours. It can move along the spine, as though concentrating on certain areas at a time, and sometimes gives tingly/tight/achy sensations in the areas close to but either side of my spine. It causes my whole body to feel heavy and awful. It responds to touch - my acupuncturist pressed down on the areas that were sore, and as he did so the pain was really sharp. It definitely causes aches and pains of various types in the back of my head and around my ears. It sometimes causes numbness/tingling/throbbing in my arms, legs, palms, and feet; and can cause difficulty (lack of fluidity) in bending, moving freely etc... It comes and goes by the hours/days, but has been quite a bit worse over the last few days for no reason that is obvious to me. Despite it being worse and keeping me largely bed ridden, I do not necessarily feel that my overall condition is worsening (we'll see how I go over the next few days/weeks), and the optimist in me even considers that it may be a sign of long term spinal pain/inflammation/damage/whatever healing - but of course, that may just be the optimist speaking. I'm wondering if anyone else is familiar with this pain, if anyone has experience to suggest if my optimism is justified or not, and what might be done to treat it (if it's a sign of methylation problems, or gut problems, or you know, whatever else...)??? Last year I had a bone scan that revealed nothing, and before that I've had an MRI of the brain which revealed nothing. I've had CFS for 3.5 years and in general have been making very small, but undoubtable, improvements over long periods... Any responses are much appreciated.
