Flu And Fibro

Flu And Fibro

I've had Fibro for 10 years. I've tried all the meds and treatments!
It just comes down to good day or more often bad days.
Do any of you feel like you have a stomach flu with your FM?
I can't figure out if I have a stomach virus on top of my FM!
The aches and pains are the same for both. But my stomach is quezie and it hurts.

My ibs makes me feel sick all the time I feel like I have the flu everyday. I would say if there new symptoms u might just have a bug. If they don't get better I would see ur doctor. U can never be to sure

I haven't been diagnosed with IBS but I have stomach aches and nausea daily. I also have been having stomach pain in addition to Costochondritis or Tietze which is pain in the rib cage and chest. I am in so much pain all over I can't figure out what is what anymore. When someone asks you where it hurts it would be easier for me to tell someone where it doesn't hurt. I have to make sure I put something in my stomach on a schedule of 8:00 a.m., 12:00 noon, and 5 pm. When my stomach hurts I drink a protein drink with 30 grams of protein and eat a couple of crackers. I also like ginger ale less sugar. Csostochondritis is one of the "friends" of FM so if you notice your ribs feeling sore it may be the pain radiating from your rib cage and making you feel like you have a stomach ache. I hope you feel better soon. P.S. always let your doctor know as well - I know you know this.
