I have dx with fibromyalgia in 2005. I've been working at a computer for 29 years and typed 5 years before the computers. Today I have severe muscles spasms in my neck and upper back that never go away. I've been to many many physical therapists, massage therapists, I have a tens unit, heating/ice pads, trigger point cane, I can only exercise in the pool since
the pain is getting worse every year. I'm unable to lift my left arm over my head or rotate it without VERY severe pain,
So far this month I've had an MRI for left shoulder....results say normal but has lateral down slopping of acromion, xray
normal.....I'm out of work and worry about my job since I have not gotten better with PT, exercise, not working, etc...
now I'm going to get an EMG of my neck next, If normal another MRI of neck. It hurts to close my mini blinds if I just
twist the wand to open/close. Hard time driving especially taking right turns, lifting my arms is unbearable pain. I'm so
afraid the emg will be negitive too....In 1999 an xray stated my neck is without a curve....forgot the medical word.
The massage therapist said they have men who working heavy duty construction jobs and my back is worse than the men.
I've been in severe pain for too many years......I hate taking all kinds of meds....I worked in a hospital ER and have seen
too many people become RX dependent. I don't want that to happen to me too.
Does anyone have any experience with MRI's and down slopping acromion.....They say it isn't the cause of this problem but
I wonder about that. When people who are "not in pain" state that can't be the cause....how do they know?? Any thoughts on this
