I'm newer to fibro and was wondering if people can be more specific when they say "pain". I'm having a hard time accepting this diagnosis. I have sharp- bee string like pains/ needle picks, burning, very heavy arms and legs and sore muscles. Tingling/vibrations. Aching hands/feet/ shoulders, wrists. Its just so many symptoms!!
Yes, yes, yes, yrs , yes etc
You will be able to separate the different symthoms.
a "flare -up" happens when things begin to settle down & you have reached a level when you can have times that are easier to cope with & more balanced , through pacing yourself & resting, & then something happens physically emotionally or mentally to upset that balance & your pain etc returns with a vengeance commonly known as a "flare-up " <3 There will be days to come where you do begin to feel a bit better or a bit worse ,it's all part of this dreadful illness .Thoughts & Prayers with you <3 Bless you & your Family xxxx
That's about right with Fibromyalgia ,or should I say wrong ! The Pains you describe are all "Normal" for Fibro .There are just so many different sorts of pain unfortunately. I have been living with Fibro for well over 10 years now :( .Another thing that is debilitating is the "Fibro-Fog" where your brain just refuses to work . Please learn to Pace your self ,try not to do too much when you have a good day ,rest when you have a "flare-up", when the pain & immobility are at their worst & keep in touch for support when you can . Thoughts & prayers with you at this difficult stage of readjustment & learning how to cope .xx
I am experiencing severe burning, pins and needles in my lower limbs, is that the same for you?
It's so hard when people don't take it seriously especially those close to us!!
