Anyone else heard of fibromyalgia causing muscle spasms and cramping in the back? am undiagnosed..

Posted , 9 users are following.

I do have idiopathic neuropathy and also seven disc disease so it’s hard to figure out what my true cause is. Do not currently have trouble sleeping or extreme lack of energy/tiredness. Anyone else have similar?

    Fibro has so many symptoms. I haven't been diagnosed yet either. Family has it and they have pain everywhere. They say it's nerve pain but my family and myself feel like it's pain all the way to the bone. I have been told I have several different things at this point and I'm honestly just not sure.

    Muscle stiffness, spasms & tightness in many forms is a common symptom in fibromyalgia. It comes and goes moves around or repeats in the same place.

    It is also a common complaint in the general healthy population.

    Assuming you haven't strained your back physically or as someone else posted, that you have no disc or degenerative issues in the spine then it may be caused by fibromyalgia.

    However, if you haven't been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, it alone will not be indicative that you have it.

    Hi tammy k

    I have recently been diagnosed with Fybromyalgia, I also get spasms and cramping in between my shoulder blades and lower back. Not sure why but have just put it down to the fibromyalgia???

    Hope you get some answers. It will be interesting to know if it is part of fibromyalgia.

    Hey Tammy,

     All of the replies in here are great. I am newly diagnosed with Fibro but I have been suffering spasms for about two years now. They started in my neck and arms, but now can happen in any part of my body. I have even had internal stomach spasms to where I thought my appendix had ruptured and they had to give me meds to make them stop. I hope you can get some answers as to what is going on. I just wanted to share my experience with you. Feel free to message me if you have any questions!

    Have a blessed daysmile

    I'm new here but your question hit home with me.

    Yes I do, I had herniated disc and fusion in 2010. Diagnosed with fibro 2 years ago. To be honest though I believe I had fibro since before than. My cramps start at the waistline usually right side. Go up the back down my arm. My hand goes numb it also goes into my chest making me feel as of my breast is in a clamp. This is very painful at rthe he least I have to sit down. I prefer to lay down because I feel I may pass out from the severity.

    I also have degenerative disc, an overgrowth of the fusion and mild for now narrowing and compression of the disc in my neck. Maybe its a combination of the two. I believe the back causes it bit the fibro makes it worse

    Hiya Tammy k, I’ve had fibro for thirty years now and I still get bad spasms and cramps in my kegs, sides, arms and hands, from time to time, so to me it’s just part and parcel of fibro..many of us get various symptoms that others do not get. I use magnesium spray if I have an attack, it’s just over the counter med, plus I take magnesium supplements  daily-double the recommended dose, they wont hurt you if your body doesn’t need them.hooe you have a lovely weekend..I’m in Oz it’s very hot and we are celebrating Australia day..be blessed Tammy..😍😍💐I’m looking into getting some. Magnesium Powder, they recon that’s awesome, but it’s quite expensive, then again if it works well I won’t be buying supplements and the spray, so it’s probabky cheaper lol💐💐

    Yes, I have had chronic back pain since I had my daughter 16 years ago. I've not been diagnosed with fibro either but I'm convinced that's the problem here. I am constantly tired, pain all over and after looking fibro up, it makes sense that it affects my back mostly. Really fed up about it all. My guess is that if we do have fibro then what happens is that it affects your most sensitive parts of the body the most and in our case...our backs.
