Hi Jan. I wish you were well enough to go home already. It's nice, though, that you have one nurse that seems to listen and care. Sorry you are so tired. I guess your body is fighting to get back in order and rest is required.
Well, first of all, offering to help is great! We all could use support when we hurt.
Tons of us use heating pads for relief. Plugging it in and bringing it over would be so nice. Ice works for red, inflamed areas, but we FMers don't as often suffer from inflammation. Many have multiple ailments though, so use whatever works.
It's nice to see a partner supporting the one with FM.View Thread
That sounds like quite a bad experience! My body didn't tolerate Savella either, but some people do well on just a crumb of it. I'm glad you are smart enough to have told your doctor about it.
I also find Tramadol helps me be more active, as it cuts the pain enough to keep moving. Other than that, the pain is something I'm learning to live with. I try not to let it knock me down all the way!
The fatigue is hard. For that I use will power and stubborn persistence, lol. Do you have lots of trouble with fatigue?
Remember to rest and hydrate often throughout the day. I hope you recover from this incident quickly.View Thread
