In brief: Get Evaluated

Get evaluated to make sure your symptoms are from fibromyalgia and not some other medical condition.
Heat, stretching, gentle exercise, massage, acupuncture, physical therapy and meditation can all help ease pain. Eating a whole food mainly plant based diet and supplements like calcium and magnesium can help as well. Ask your doctor about supplements that can help ease your pain, and make sure to get plenty of sleep.

In brief: OMM

Many people with fibromyalgia are able to see their pain reduced and gain more functionality as a result of osteopathic manipulative medicine as delivered from the hands of a skilled osteopathic physician (do).
Particularly useful seems to be the relatively new modality called the fascial distortion model. I would recommend that you seek out such a do and see what they can do for you.

I agree; you might also want to try yoga...or some guided imagery therapy so you can out "think" your pain.

In brief: Fibromyalgia

See your doctor to determine if the back pain is fibromyalgia or something else and then treat the cause.
Meanwhile mild exercise, stretching, yoga may help. Healthy diet, no smoking, and keep alcohol at minimum. Use meditation. Hot baths may help. Try to get 8 hours sleep.
