Hello folks,

I hope all are well. Put it this way, if you made it another day, you great.

The question that I want to pose is this; do any of you folk have to deal with bad bouts of fibro after a kidney stone flare up?

The reason being is that I wound up in the hospital Saturday evening for horrendous pain that turned out to be a kidney stone.

Due to the pain killers, antibiotics and other medicine to keep me from losing my cookies, I am doing much better, except for when I sat down.

The only chair in the entire house that I can be comfortable in is the recliner in the living room. Straight kitchen chairs are fine for about 15 to 20 minutes.

After that I got to relocate back to the recliner or the floor.

The pain is on my ribcage which is always sore to the touch.

After coming back to my senses, it hit me that the painful kidney stone episode made that flare up where I can't rightly sit where I would like.

If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it. Thank you all.

Hello.

It makes sense to me that you would have this experience. Fibro is usually associated with other previous chronic or acute pain. The symptoms you describe are what I experience daily due to all of my conditions.
