Pain

Pain

Is it just me or the less I move the worse the pain gets, and the more I exercise the more pain I also get. It is like keeping a balance between the two smh

Has Anyone Else Had Cataract Surgery And Been Over Stimulated By The New Brightness?

Has Anyone Else Had Cataract Surgery And Been Over Stimulated By The New Brightness?

Just had cataract surgery on both eyes and it's thrown me into such a flare! I've been fortunate with past surgeries and procedures but this simple (for everyone else, apparently) surgery has really set me back. My eyes are sensitive, so maybe not so strange, but I sure didn't expect this! Everything is so Very bright! Getting used to Not wearing glasses is weird, too.

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Yes, my prescription glasses had the darkening lenses; I loved them! I am wearing large sunglasses if I go out at all. We call them my 'Jackie "O"' look πŸ˜†πŸ˜‰ I go back in 3 weeks to get Rx readers.

Yes, in my hands, especially when I'm driving. I have to shake my hands frequently to keep ahold of the wheel. My feet & toes feel asleep most of the time 😬

I'm was using D-mannose, but shipment won't be here for two weeks. Maybe I could substitute something I have on hand.

Dozing Off

Dozing Off

Does anyone else have the same problem as me
I will be at my desk at work and come over all tired, I struggle (and I mean, I really struggle) to keep my eyes open. I have to keep going to toilet just to shut my eyes for a few minutes. My sleep is terrible, but I just wondered if anyone else has this issue and what you do when you are at work? I think people are starting to notice but I haven’t told them of my diagnosis from this week, as one member of staff says fibromyalgia is a made up… read more

Hernias Γ—6+

Hernias Γ—6+

I'm going to be having a "complicated" surgery by a specialist for 6 or more hernias. I'm nervous.
Is it going to heal???
How long will I miss work?
I will be at a hospital 1.5 hrs. Away from family.
I'm usually brave but not lately. I just turned 58 and am grateful for every single day!
Any advice or prayers, encouragement appreciated.
God bless πŸ™Œ

Yesterday Morning

Yesterday Morning

I had difficulty reading, so I went outside to water and deadhead flowers beside my driveway. A neighbour who's wife is a close friend stopped to chat and I literally could not find words. I was majorly embarrassed. Afterward I realized that I was having an ocular migraine. I didn't recognize it because I didn't have the typical zigzag pattern across my vision.
