Could this be a Fibro Flare? Wednesday my muscles started hurting pretty bad but Thursday morning I was in agony. Every muscle in my body hurt like hell. The ER doctor on Friday told me it was probably a Fibro Flare. She didn't tell me anything I could do to ease the pain. I could barely walk. I had to use my cane to get around and walk very slowly. Any ideas? I am feeling a little better this morning. Also, my legs, feet and hands swelled up too. Thank you.
@A MyFibroTeam Member, You are So NOT ALONE! I have been suffering about the same. Haven't used a cane, yet. I also have leg cramps ALL NIGHT LONG! I have to stand by the side of bed MANY times, in order to keep my feet from curling-up. It used to be just the right leg--then foot. NOW--BOTH! And I take a 1Mg. *Ropinirole every night "for leg cramps!" I remove pillow from under my thighs as much as possible. This helped *some--for a while. But my lower back aches so bad that I sometimes have to place pillow back for a while. Can't lie on either side! Numbing and cramping gets much worse! My bladder hardly functions, anymore. I'm in 24/7 CONSTANT PAIN! I learned that *Gluten in foods made pain much worse. So I stopped eating most foods with gluten. Even Pasta! ***Bread has Gluten in it! Epilepsy since 6 months old, Fibromyalgia since 1998 and more I cannot mention. This morning, I asked The Lord, "Why am I here? What *Purpose is there for me on this Earth? All I've known is Pain in some fashion. I WANT OUT OF THIS BODY! I want to go to Heaven, where there is NO sickness, NO *Pain, and ***Unconditional Love*** from Our Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit."
I pray you feel better, SOON, young Lady. I understand about your Pain. More than I can write. Try to hold on. Yell if you need to yell. Call out to HIM if you need to talk to someone who will not *talk back to you. HE Understands more than we can comprehend.
@A MyFibroTeam Member, The Lord Bless Thee And Keep Thee *Always. Amen.
@A MyFibroTeam Member So glad they finally figured out what was wrong. Too bad you had to get so sick before they found it. Hope you will soon improve and be back to feeling better. Lots of hugs.
@A MyFibroTeam Member, Thank You so much. The Lord Will honor you for your *Time spent in leaving more Golden Nuggets to your Grandchildren. How *unselfish of you. Just remember. They have their own personalities. The Old Folk used to say, "You can Lead A Horse To Water, But You Can't Make Them Drink." But we can store up prayers for them in Heaven! You are doing your part, Bunnie. I pray that whenever the *Time(s) needed, they will be there for you. *The Lord Bless Thee And Keep Thee ALWAYS. Amen.
@A MyFibroTeam Member My heart goes out to you. I have been to the point of yelling and screaming. I have prayed, please come Lord Jesus. This world is not my happy place. In fact since having Fibro/Chronic Fatigue, I had to stop playing the piano and singing at church. In fact, I don't even feel like going anywhere on most days. I know the Lord hears our cries and cares for us greatly. There is still something he has for us to do here on earth whether it be witnessing by sending tracts in our bills, doing the same if you are on Facebook and if you have email, putting a Bible verse, on your mail. I have mostly teen age Grandchildren that I dearly love and if I am up to it, they come two times a week to eat dinner. There are five of them and Praise God they live close to us. Last week I started out with about 10 minutes of talk and typed paper for each, concerning their salvation and what God expects after we are saved. It was great, my babies are Christians but three of them don't get the Bible learning I want them too. God laid it on my heart! I have had a hard time getting my thoughts together to get this typed but last week I did. I know there are other things we can do also but I do know that we get depressed and at that time it is hard to see any future. God be with you and I pray that things will get better as you are having a hard time. I pray you will have a pain free and wonderful day. HUGS
"In Christ Alone" ............ a beautiful song.
