Morning Pain If Staying In Bed After Waking Up.

Morning Pain If Staying In Bed After Waking Up.

Hello all,
I have been diagnosed with Fibro and experience full-body morning pain and fatigue after I wake up.

What is strange is that:
When I just wake up, get up immediately and move my body, I AM FINE.
If I stayed in bed for a little longer I get the pain and fatigue and it is so hard to get up.

Is this normal?

Cymbalta And Coffee

Cymbalta And Coffee

I drink coffee but not much. I have a little coffee shot in the morning and one in the afternoon to help with the afternoon sleepiness. I don’t drink soda or anything like that. When I mentioned it to my doctor she didn’t seemed to be concerned about it at all. Does anybody have any experience with this? No… read more

Has Anyone Else Experienced Joint Pain After They Were Diagnosed With Fibromyalgia? Any Recommendations?

After the onset of Fibromyalgia, I have experienced major joint pain and "cracking" of the joints. Is there anything I can do to help stop it or at least slow it down? Does anyone know what caused it?
