- DX FIBRO
I work a job “supervising” janitorial work but I’m much more hands-on than I probably should be and tend to work just as hard as my staff. Some nights I’m vacuuming, others I’m sweeping and mopping and there are times when I’m hauling heavy garbage. When I get home, every night without fail, I sit in my recliner and prop my feet up, and when I go to get up I’m stiff as a board from the waist down. It physically hurts to stand up. It’s like my lower body is a piece of cardboard that’s been crumpled and bent and someone’s trying to unfold it. If that’s even makes sense. I just wonder if anyone else experiences this. I never really have stiffness in the mornings at all but I never have stiffness really any time other than after I’m pnysically active. They say “moving more is good for fibromyalgia” but I feel so much more pain when I do physical activity as opposed to when I’m relaxing and taking it easy all day. Does anyone else experience the things I am experiencing? Is there a way to combat this? I take 60mg of Cymbalta (Duloxetine) every day as well as gabapentin. I am supposed to take gabapentin 3 times a day but with my busy lifestyle I never remember to take all 3 so I usually end up just taking 1. Not sure if that makes a difference.
