So last winter I didn't have too much trouble with pain getting worse. However, so far this winter I have been so much more fatigued and in so much more pain. Is it possible that fibro gets worse or changes over time??m
I get medical marijuana in the flower form from my medical marijuana provider. My doctor had to approve it. I can't smoke because I have asthma and the couple times I tried I developed pneumonia. I have a nice vaporizer which works really well for me (PAX2), spendy but worth it. Vaporizing it means the volitles are actually in the form of vapor instead of smoke.At this point I just need two puffs at night. my pain comes on strong if I don't use it for two days. When I started used medical marijuana I started feeling more like myself again compared to using opiates and have been able to resume some of my activities/work.
Lol I sympathize, MarieAxe! The cold and low pressure systems definitely cause more pain. When I stop moving, doesn't even have to be intense exercise, just walking around, my pain increases. And yes, I vape medical marijuana, lol! That helps too!
Mine changes regularly. I find occasionally need to add or delete medicines for a period of time or adjust dosages depending on what's going on. As others have stated, this winter is much worse, but I thought it was due to circumstances in my life. I've accepted the ever-changing state of my fibromyalgia, I never know what is coming next!
Mine has gotten worse over the years but I'm not sure if it's because I don't bounce back as quickly between flares. Means I'm still down when the next one hits so just compounds everything. Feel like there's no time to regroup and my flares are longer and more intense and because I'm more tired I spend more time in bed not getting any excercise or eating well which I believe affects my ability to cope with chronic pain. Plus I now have additional illnesses to add to the mix. Hope this helps.
Yes there are stages and i believe they come in 5 stages. I believe when i got to stage 4 i noticed that my nerves are so bad that i have lost feeling in my feet and half way up my leg. I stumble alot more due to, i have lose muscle tone and spasms have gotten worst. Specially if I'm on feet alot. Hope that helps, and i did read this and i heard it from a doctor.
