Fibromyalgia and back Pain?

I have Fibromyalgia and I also have a herniated disc in my lower back, with that I take medication to control my fibro but yet to find something that will help control the pain in my back and keep the fibro undercontrol as well, any suggestions?

    I think you might be able to benefit from chiropractic care. Chiropractic is based on the principle that the Central Nervous System (brain, spinal cord, and nerves) controls EVERY function of our body, and if there is interference anywhere along the nerve impulse, it has a negative effect on the body. When the spinal column is misaligned (what chiropractic calls a subluxation), the bones can pinch/damage the nerves that run out between them, thus interfering with the CNS signals and causing pain, numbness/tingling, or any type of general malfunction to that nerve's corresponding body.

    I'm not saying that this is the cause of your FM, but I used to work in a chiro office, and saw how a woman with terrible FM (who had to walk with a cane) underwent care and was relieved of her pain and symptoms. I also think a chiropractor could at least help with your herniated disk.

    But no doctor can guarantee a cure. It would be in your best interest to ask around for recommendations, visit a few offices to explain your situation, and pick the doctor you are most comfortable with. No matter what you decide to do, I sincerely wish you the best of luck.
