We start today on day 3 of this miserable ride of the latest bout of a fibromyalgia flare. The last 3 days have been hellish. I wake in a morning after a night of pain and very little sleep to being unable to move. The day starts with trying to edge may way out of bed.The pain in my left leg is just too much. I have to push myself up with my right leg, its still painful but not as bad as the left. I currently have chest pain and pain between my ribs, which feels like someone has been continuously kicking me all night. Holding my lip and trying not to scream slowly lift me left leg.

Pins and needles

We all know that Fibro has many weird symptoms and associated conditions, that some may experience, besides the widespread pain. I was just wondering if anyone else sometime experience pins and needles when showering. I experience it sometimes but not all the time. How about random pain like you have cut yourself in an area but nothing happened to explain it?

Finally getting answers

Hi, My name is Emma and I am from South Australia. I've had sever migraines for most of my life as well an stiffness in the joints. Over the years the pain has slowly increased and spread. I am now 21 almost 22 and in near constant pain. Today has been particularly bad I can barely lift my arms with out gritting my teeth.

Husband looking for help understanding

I need some help with my wife's fibromyalgia. I have no idea how to deal with her chronic pain. I don't understand what it feels like to have fibromyalgia and its sad. I hate hearing that she is hurting all the time. I get she is hurting but to hear it everyday day multiple times is destroying us. I don't want to sound selfish but we cant even be intimate anymore.

Fibromyalgia survey

How many of you are willing to admit that you use illicit drugs or any involvement in being a victim of domestic violence in relationships?

Soma is very bad for fibromyalgia

Soma is a combination drug and parts of the properties it has are those of anesthesia and have actions based the same as opiates. They are very dangerous for the central nervous system and will make your fibromyalgia symptoms worse in the long run. Basically heroin in theory would be safer for use.

PTSD brings on fibro symptoms

Look into PTSD if you have ever experienced traumatic stress or been in an abusive relationship. It can bring on fibromyalgia symptoms

How many people have more then just fibro? Also I'm new here!

Hi everyone!

im Emmy I'm a 29 year old from Australia  and I have been recently diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have had pain for the last 15 years but have a lot of other health issues (Type 1 diabetes, endometriosis, PCOS, migraines, hypothyroidism, hypersomnia, chronic sinusitis and IBS are the main ones)that the pain was always blamed on. I find it hard to talk about to others because they just don't understand. Often they say I'm to young for that many issues or I don't look sick. So I'm glad I found this site!
