Wheelchair tips?

Time of the month plus busy week equals fibro flare. Considering my wheelchair for college tomorrow, but I struggle using it. Any advice?

Thinking of doing what I always do - dive right in. Once I start I have no choice but to keep going. Just nervous doing that with a wheelchair!

Exercise or rest???

I'm so confused and torn by things my doctors and physio keep telling me. They keep stressing the importance of exercise but tell me not to do more than I feel able to. Even just walking from work to the bus stop I feel like my back will snap with the pain or my legs will give way with exhaustion. Do I push through and do more or do I listen to my screaming body and rest? How do you guys cope?

Three year flare up?

I meant to ask before I went on vacation, but when I went to the pain clinic and explained how I'll I have been, the doctor said I have been having a flare. That means since April 2014, she thinks I've been having a flare. Has anyone else been told this? It's like she brushed off the worsening of my symptoms as if I will recover. If it's a flare, I'll get better attitude.

Plus I have CFS/ME, so suffer from PEM and she told me to walk briskly every day! Really???!!!

Prozac helps with depression but I can't see where it would help with fatigue. It might help with pain to a degree because it helps with the depression. These are just… read more
