Just out of interest, i wanted to know how easily everyone has been able to get medications they need for their FMS, do you find general anti spasmodics help with the pain and spasms? I don't know if it is just because i am in england, and our NHS is crap, or whether this is something that is general everywhere, that when you might need something to help, the doctors dont help...sorry if i am repeating myself here......cant think straight today

I have found that finding DRUGS that work is the hardest part for me! However my DR won't prescribe muscle relaxers or sleeping aids for me & I dont know why? I am getting ready to see a new DR 1/10/06 maybe things will be different!!!

Good luck with that Brenda, please let me know how you get on!!!! My dr wont prescribe ANY drugs at all now, says i am better off with ibuprofen, only i cant take that any more since the GERD started in september! So now i am well and truly left on my own and i hate it. Sorry, i am having a low day today, been in painful spasms for most of the day, with no way of relieving much for celebrating a new year! sorry again!!!

I'm so sorry to hear you're in a bad way today. Do you think an Epsom Salt bath might help? New Years last 365 days, plenty time to celebrate. Soft hugs.

Hi Jeannie....Epsom salt bath??? have never heard of it supposed to help with FMS spasms????


Jeannie3 - December 31

From what I ONLY guess is it helps to relax you and your muscles. Maybe its in my mind but if I soak in a very warm/hotish bath for 10 minutes then a cool shower I do feel better. But for real bad spasms I don't know. I tried antspasmodic drug long time ago before I was dx but they didn't help the fibro pain. Gosh, I hope I didn't confuse you . What part of England are you from.
I was in Sussex East Grinstead for about 1/2 year in the 70's.

Hi Jeannie.....i think i'm being blonde here, or having a craft moment, but what does the dx stand for in the advice u left?? I have had antispasmodics before, and i did find them helpful...provided i didnt use them all the time! I am in Poole, Dorset.

Hi, dx stands for diagnosis. Sorry about that. About the antispasmodics I would tell the doctor that they had helped before and to check his records/ Lots of Luck (with drs we kinda need it)....Jeannie
