Thanks so much Nancy for your GOOD advice you are so right it is so easy to say it's just FM because we who suffer have so much going on and new stuff everyday it's hard to know that's why this board is so important to me I don't always post but i do read everyday.
Evening Fmily For the last three weeks I have been in a terrible flare so I thought muscles hurt every where, cramps in arms and legs,sinus clogged, ears clogged just plain miserable. Went to the Doc on monday and she did some blood work and found my potassium was very low and that's what was causing so much pain. She give me meds and took me off my water pill so hopefully I'll feel better in a couple of days. So glad I listen to friends on this site when they say everything is not always fibro.
Morning Fmily I have been in the worst flare for a couple of weeks. My arms and legs hurt so very bad I can hardly touch them.The pain starts from my waist down my butt to my foot , my ankle feels like it's broke and I can't even lay on that side. My new thing is when I go the the bathroom to have a bm it take forever no pain just slow. I know fibro effects the muscles so I think that's the problem. Just wondered if this has happen to anyone else.
