So for the past few days I have not had a lot pain and those weird sunburn feeling on my body. Now I feel like I can catch up on needed housework or even go back to work full time. I don’t want to over due it, but want to do things that I have not been able to do in months. What do you do when you are not having a fibro flare???
IF you're not working at all, it might be best to work Part Time and see IF you are really ready for a Full Time job. When I'm not having a Fibro Flare I have learned the only way to prevent a bad Fibro flare is to pace my self and rest between tasks and never push myself beyond what I can do. When my friend came over from out of state, I cleaned beyond what I was able and I knew it. I'm still in a flare and it's been a few weeks already. Also, I know my body needs a full eight hours sleep each night and burning the candle at both ends (rising up early and going to be late) makes my Fibro worse.
Well, I end up doing quite a bit! Sometimes I do just fine and other times I get a flare, but it is usually not bad. Just pace yourself and make sure that you lay down and rest in the afternoon. I have been very busy for the last few weeks because I'm feeling better, but I felt myself not feeling up to par these past few days so I have been laying down in the afternoon for about 2 hours and resting, even if I don't sleep. It seems to re-energize me and then I go to bed early. Good luck and enjoy the well times!
I have prosperous mornings with rest periods but my afternoons and evenings are not so good. I dread going to sleep because the pain really sets in. I would say this is my experience 96% of the time. For flares I take hydrocodone and use ice packs. My fibromyalgia has gotten worse or my remedies just don't work anymore.
travel ,, take short hikes or walks with friends .. go out to eat,, you know live a normal life
