I know that sound wrong but when I set down to relax from the day the pain starts to over take me. so I force myself to get up snd do something. Not much just putt around, dead head flowers, water some, smell them and listen to the birds.The pain is still there but my mind is focused on other things for that time. I do hate fibromyalgia have had it for many years. I have taken lots of different meds,taken shot in the trigerpoints, meds for depression at one point I was taking 12 pills aday I finnaly stopped taking all of them. Right now I take antacid pills, blood pressure, and a sleeping pill. I have tramadol on hand for the days that get to bad. anyone else know what I'm saying?View Thread
I have been using a unit that sends pluses where ever I stick the pads. It has different setting. I control how hard or soft I want it. I do like it , it can be relaxing. Husband got it for his back pain , and I saw it was for fibromyalgia so we both use it . I think it was a good $235.00 spent.View Thread
I think it is all part of beast. As most of us fibroees you can wake up dead tired. Many mornings I set up ready to get out of bed and crawl back in. It has been much easier sence we retirered 2 yrs ago. Stress from work demands of family all factor in. In my case I always put everyone and everything ahead of my need (not smart with fibro) so I made it harder on myself. At age 62 now I can and do slow down (wish I had figured that out yrs ago)View Thread
