Fibro Flare Ups
samcajun posted:
Hi, I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia for two years. I have recently moved back to Baton Rouge, LA and do not know of a good fibro doctor. Any suggestions? Also, do any of you suffer from what I call "body slam" days? I will get a severe headache, fever, chills, horrible pain and the only solution is to go to bed and sleep it off. This is in addition to my daily pain and exhaustion.

Yes, I have those days. I think going to sleep is our bodies way of coping with everything going on with it. All this pain is exhausting on us. I try to go to be at night thinking that maybe tomorrow will be a better less painful day and sometimes it is and sometimes it isn't. You have to put one foot in front of the other. I know it's hard.

Yes! Maybe not the exact same symptoms, but the same effect. I have been going through a flare for the last week because of the weather and have had three of these days in a row. So aggravating not being able to keep up the house and laundry. I am also anemic and I have to fight to get these things done normally, but with a flare they are impossible.
