    Tawra, I can relate to your pain. I live in the UK so I don;t know if you will be able to obtain what I take for my Fibromyalgia. After years of pain, I have now found this is the best for me. I brush my legs in an upward motion (towards my heart) then I apply Lidocaine (anaestheic -what your dentist injects into your gum))patches to where the worst pain is that night. As you will know the pain changes. Then I take Amytryptoline and a muscle relaxent. I cannot take Ibrobrufen as I had a heart attack therefore no NSAID’s allowed. Only Paracetamol and Aspirin (which is in your Alkaseltzer) I raise my legs and buttocks on two pillows which allows me to have no contact with anything pressing on my spine . After years of research this is the best for me. When I go to the South of France I have no pain with the heat. when I go to Dubai to visit my daughter, I do have pain, as it is humid.
    Home this helps somebody.
