Does Anyone Else Notice On Days They Have Certain Symptoms Other Symptoms Are Gone?

Does Anyone Else Notice On Days They Have Certain Symptoms Other Symptoms Are Gone?

I know it's a very strange question, but I get head pressure/pain and have noticed on the days my head bothers me the rest of my body feels really good. Usually even on meds I get lots of pain in my back, legs, arms, basically whatever feels like hurting. My husband actually noticed the pattern before I did, but on the days I have head pressure/pain the rest of my body feels really good and no pain.

Yes. I have noticed this too. I said once before that I think our bodies can only handle one thing at a time. If my back goes out, it seems that is all I can tolerate so my fibro eases up. I think our brains focus on whatever pain is more severe at the time and the other pain gets put on the back burner. I hope this makes sense. Unfortunately when the other pain eases up, my fibro seems to come back with a vengeance. I have had what I call a remission of my fibro where my pain is more tolerable for a week or so but when it comes back to normal, it usually puts me down for several days.
I hope you all have a low pain day. Hugs

Yup! For me, there are several things that impact how I feel each morning: extreme weather changes; restless sleep; dehydration; stress; how much activity I did the day prior. I'm sure I'm leaving something out, but these are the common things. Unfortunately, the list is so long, it pretty much covers daily life.

I've noticed that when the pain in one part of my body is really severe, it may seem like the other pain in my body isn't there, but if I pay attention it is still there. It is weird but it is as if my body can't handle processing all that pain at once or something. The best example is a migraine, because they are so intense. However if I do go to lift a gallon of milk from the fridge all of sudden my brain remembers my hand and wrist pain as it shoots up through my wrist whether I have the migraine or not lol.

Yes, my symptoms come and go. Sometimes I can predict them.

Yes, absolutely! My pains or strange sensations used to move around about every six weeks. Head, neck, shoulders, back, rib cage, upper legs, etc. Now the cycles are longer, I take the pain in certain areas much better than others.
