    Covid 19 Vaccination with FM/CFS

    Understood, I 'feel like poo' all the time too, so never know for sure if I'm coming down with something or not.

    Exercise

    There seems to be an ongoing debate as to whether exercise is helpful to Fibro sufferers or not. I got into doing a 10 to 15 min 'workout' most mornings ie nothing too strenuous, just stretches etc & at my own pace & that seemed to help improve my energy levels & enable me to stay active longer...

    Change of medication, coming off Gabapentin

    I thought we'd moved on from the 'It's All In your Head' fallacy way back. Admittedly, research into Fibromyalgia has been painfully (no pun intended )slow, largely due to it not having the 'glamour' of the likes of Cancer or Heart disease etc so doesn't get the same level of attention or...

    Alternative Therapy for Anxiety

    Sorry about that, I pressed the wrong button & messed-up with the paragraph settings or something & it all went a bit strange, but story of my life lol!

    Alternative Therapy for Anxiety

    Exactly so sunkacola & well said. I'm a Trustee of an African Children's Charity, I live on a small income in a tiny one-bedroom flat, which I share with my son who has serious mental health issues & who cannot support himself, meaning as well as trying to cope with my Fibro, I live in a...

    My support gal 💕

    My dog was a Rescue dog aged 10ish the vet said & I had him 13 years. He was the best dog I ever had but died on the first day of the first lock down here in England. There's a huge empty hole they leave behind in your life & I still miss him every day. but I know my Fibro pain & exhaustion etc...

    Frozen Appendages

    I like the 'Nose Cosy' idea. Once upon a time when everyone used tea-pots, there were tea-pot Cosies & I seem to remember seeing 'Egg Cosies' that were used to keep boiled eggs warm, they might just be the right size but am not sure how one would keep them on. I also like the cashmere...

    Frozen Appendages

    PS: I use fake tan on my pasty white legs, which makes me feel much better about them. Except you can't see my legs for my more or less permanent over-the-knee woolly socks & anyway, I wear long skirts but I reckon anything, no matter how small, that makes us feel better about ourselves or just...

    Frozen Appendages

    Thanks for these posts. I've struggled with freezing hands etc but I've never seen any info about appendages, other than mention of Fibro patients 'often have no internal thermostat', which I kinda know seeing as my near-constant companion is a hot water bottle, whatever the season, so am...

    Covid 19 Vaccination with FM/CFS

    Hi All, had second shot (Pfizer)a couple of days ago. I was dreading it after having had a bad reaction with the first that lasted 5 weeks, during which I had flu-like symptoms, was heavy-limbed & struggled with over-whelming exhaustion. After a few weeks of this I decided not to have the...

    Me again Sunkacola, just letting you know that I have actually found your post & I read it...

    Me again Sunkacola, just letting you know that I have actually found your post & I read it before but had forgotten I had, which meant it was a Fibrofog day or just me being forgetful, so pretty much par for the course. I'm still looking for a natural sleep remedy that works, as nothing I have...

    Vulnerable to covid

    Love your positivity Sunkola & you are absolutely right that if humans are going to be included in the well-prophesied & predicted major extinction even that experts tell us has already started, it would be great news for this planet we seem intent on destroying.

    Vulnerable to covid

    Thank you for your wise words Sunkacola & yes, I guess I'll just have to wait & see what happens with the second shot. However, bearing in mind the myriad horrendous mutations & variants that are emerging all around the globe, I think it more than probable that the presently available vaccines...

    Covid 19 Vaccination with FM/CFS

    Thing is, I suspect that most doctors, certainly G.P.'s & so-called 'Specialists' seem to know little or nothing about Fibromyalgia & present treatment consists of medications to attempt to control the symptoms but not the cause, as that remains unknown & nor, of course, is there a cure. It's...
