I have a friend who suffers badly from fibromyalgia. He has to take several strong narcotics--not to kill the pain but to bring it to a tolerable level.
He says to do the four things--and keep on doing them:
Be anointed at intervals
Mediate on the Passion of Christ
Wait on the Lord.

Friend. Go to the doctor and follow his instructions. God put doctors here to help us. It is nothing wrong with seeking help along with much prayer, fasting and trusting in the Lord. God does not place anything upon us that we cannot bear. Go up for prayer at your church, let others pray for you etc...do whatever you can to help yourself but keep trusting in your Lord. God uses people, places and things to work His wonderful miracles. He is so awesome! I pray you be healed real soon,Love.

I have alot of health issues, and naproxen sodium has been my next best frient to Jesus. It's not always a sin to take pain killer. If you are very bad off and can't see a doctor, or there's nothing they can do. I think it's great to be annointed and prayed over, but to also have the sense God gave you to take herbs or medicines until He heals you, and if He doesn't.

See a medical doctor and get help with pain management. Ask for a referral to a specialist who can train you to manage it.

As the Lord said to Paul, "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness" (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Since God says in His word, "I am the Lord that Healeth thee." and "He sent forth His word and healed them," and "By His stripes you are healed." I find it hard to believe it was God's voice that you heard saying that He will not heal you. Satan disguises himself as an angel of light and can make one think they're hearing God's voice when in fact it's a mockery of God's voice and it's satan's voice. Why would God choose NOT to heal someone when His word says differently?

God tells us, "For I the Lord am your healer." Find scriptures in the bible on healing, write them down, meditate on them until they become Spirit and Life. I do still go see a doctor like when I had my spinal injury. I prayed and did all I could do in the natural and then God did heal my spine, but I had to go through a yaer of Physical Therapy and Epidural Injections. People prayed for me all during my trial, and so did I, it was a process I had to go through. It was not an instant healing.

I also have Fibromyalgia along with Lupus, Arthritis and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Unfortunatley I have to take a lot of medicine, but I'm still truckin' along. When I am feeling pain or fatigue I feel as though it's the Lord telling me to slow down and rest. When I do I usually feel much better. I have prayed for healing, but I feel as though God has a reason why all of this is happening. One day I will know His reason.

A book that I recommend is THE PROBLEM OF PAIN by CS Lewis.

My friend's advice--in case I wasn't clear--assumues you are doing all in your power medically, as well.

Madison1101 - What about prayer? Should the person get prayer for their pain?
---Helen_5378 on 10/22/06|
God cured my chronic pain from Fibromyalgia by leading me to get the generic drug for Celexa. Thank you Jesus!

I know that God is in control. I don't act like it's not happening, nor do allow others to question my faith, when dealing with the pain.
I'm in pain 24/7, and it's been going on for a while. Some days are worse than others. I'm not a big complainer, though I'm affected with every step I take. The medicines are not always helpful, and I can't take them when I need to because I still must work, and drive. I do what I can and remain grateful.
