    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I too run fever during flare ups. It is as if there are flu like symptoms going on. You are not alone in this. Just make sure you are monitoring the fever and able to tell if it is the FM or that your actually gettting sick. Anyone who has truly gotten the flu with FM, or when I did at least, a flare up was coming around the corner.

    Yep, I do as well. Definitely feels like the flu so the muscle aches are much worse. Another gift from "the dragon ". I find that Aleve is beneficial during this time. Best of luck
