- DX FIBRO
Hello! I'm Amy. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in August of 2020. I didn't believe that was what I had for several months. However, through research of fibro & charting my flares, I now know this is for real. I was really wanting to connect with others who have it...and have a few questions. I recently realized my flares are so much worse in Spring & Summer. Is this par for the course? I suffer after being in the sun, excercising or "overextending" myself. I also have terribly tight muscles in my calves almost all the time. Also par for the course? Migranes, all over muscle pain, joint pain, insomnia, etc...you know the drill. I've thought about medicine for it, but because of the side effects, I'm just not sure. Anyone use meds for Fibro and do ok with them? Right now all I use is Tizanidine occasionally to relax and sleep well. But only when I really need it. Anyine who can share a bit? I would REALLY appreciate it. Thanks so much!
