Hi~ I am really hoping that someone out there has an answer for me!

My entire lower back hurts to touch. It is NOT the skin but what is benieth. I cannot get a massage or even touch it gently without being in extreme pain. After it has been poked or touched, that area feels like it has been bruised for at least a week.

Please tell me why I have this pain. I have had it for a year now and doctors have not been able to tell me why.

Thank you so much!!!

Is it possible you are suffering from Fibromyalgia?

What have doctors suggested you do about the pain?

I would ask if fibromyalgia is a possibility.
