DDD and Fibro

Does anyone here have or know anything about Degenerative Disc Disease? Coupled with fibromyalgia?

I’ve been diagnosed with DDD this past week and am having a hard time getting answers. I’ve been referred to a specialist, but am unable to get in until April. I was diagnosed fibromyalgia a couple months ago as well.

It seems like an awful long time till April, and I’m curious to know what the doctor will say. All I’ve been able to find is that physical therapy is the best method of pain relief, but I have been doing physical therapy since mid-September, and it has only gotten worse. Know what the next step might be?

TIA, and to anyone who has fibromyalgia and/or DDD, I feel for you. :grphug:

Hi, Shana!
I am so sorry about your diagnosis! It must be very frustrating. I also have fibro - and I think that my mom has DDD. I am seeing her this afternoon and will ask her about it. She also has fibro. I will get back to you, but wanted to respond to you now so that you don’t have to wait too long for a response. I agree - April does seem a long way off! Stay strong - I will get back to you. Gentle hugs!

I have fibro, but not DDD, thank goodness, the best information I have found online about fibro was webmd, and the best doctor for it is a rheumatologist.
