I am being treated to a week away from sunny uk , just my partner and myself and it's the first time since my brain surgery and having fibromyalgia. It will be so nice, in a pleasant way to get away from my very busy house consisting of my son 23 and his girlfriend, my other son 21 who is a full time wheelchair user, my daughter who is 18 and just given birt prematurely to my first granddaughter and my stepson who is 10, not forgetting a dog and cat… read more
I don't know if it's just the timing, but I feel like since my diagnosis back in Nov, my symptoms have gotten worse. My exhaustion level is through the roof, the pain is unbearable at night, I can barely move in the morning, and I am pretty sure I have RLS, because they always hurt and I always shake them. I'm sick of hearing family and friends make comments about how I was never this sick before. The only person who remembers it is my bf, and that's because he pieced things… read more
They are changing things at work and want me to work 1pm to 9pm some nights. I currently sleep after work some days to rest up. I am stressing out over this and of course that not good for me either. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
I've always been hypersensitive, smelling things before others do, but now I believe I'm smelling things that aren't there. Light for the past 15 minutes I'm smelling burning wax Christmas Candles. WTF?

Hi I'm looking for a bit of advice. Please bare with me I've not posted on here before. I suffer from Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) in my hands and arms and also have Fibro but I'm struggling to differentiate between the two when I'm having a flare up as I don't yet know a lot about fibro. My whole body also feels like I've been battered from head to toe ( I haven't though). Going upstairs is a task in itself as at times I feel like an old woman. I have a bubble of fluid on each ankle as… read more
Has anyone found any relief going to the chiropractor? I've had such terrible pain in my left hip and I wonder if it would help. My anxiety is high even thinking about going though.
Changing of the seasons seems to be when I have flare ups, but living in New England the winters are always worse than any other season for me. I am thinking of moving to a warmer climate but not sure if that is the answer.
