spine pain

Can fibromyalgia cause pain in your spine? There are a couple of areas on my spine that are very tender to the touch, almost like a bruise. I am wondering if I should have it looked at or if it just another irritating part of fibromyalgia. Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, I have spine pain all the time, if you take your fingers and push in, it is sore, the only way I can explain it to the doc is like a sprained ankle! You definately should see a doc and maybe be x-rayed. Fibro can make EVERYTHING hurt! But it wouldn't hurt to make sure everything is OK- Blessings! V

I have chronic spine pain too. I have been receiving osteopathic treatment for some years now and I find that it does give me some short term relief - my osteopath is extremely good, but I'm aware that the phrase 'long-term osteo treatment' makes it sound ineffective. In conjunction with the amitryptiline, naproxen and co-codamol it lessens my symptoms to a degree which is manageable for me. It's not cheap but it is a priority for me so I just go without other things. Following a minor road traffic accident I was in extreme pain and had a couple of sessions a week, in better times I will have two sessions or even one per month. For spine pain in particular I really do find that osteopathy helps somewhat.
