    I have bursitis in my hips and chronic pain in my back and I have fibromyalgia. My health therapist on here has provided me with exercises which may help once I can do them. I've started walking and she is very encouraging.
    I am now going to see a physical therapist and doing stretching exercises and doing ultrasound therapy. It's helping my hips but my back still hurts and it's so hard to deal with this amount of pain.
    I now walk about a mile a day.

    I have trouble lifting things over 10 lb. Walking makes my legs go numb. I have a place on my back between my shoulder blade and my spine that is in constant pain no matter what I'm doing. Sometimes it's so bad that it goes all the way through to my chest.
