Hey there Fib-Fam!
Got a question.. Do you have any "warning signs" before you have a flare??
I woke up yesterday feeling really great (that's unusal). I had some extra energy most of the day. 
Last night I fixed a lovely dinner (smothered chicken, green beans and angelhair pasta with an herb sauce).  I sat down to eat, took one bite and pushed it away.  I didn't have the engery to eat and the meal just didn't appeal to me, even though I had been craving it for days.  I had to go to my recliner and just sit there the rest of the evening shakehead    I slept pretty well last night (for a change) but still feel very ooopsie in the tummy and whoosie in the head this morning. 
I'm a little concerned that this might be a "fore-warning" of a flare.
So, do you have/get a little body sign that you're on the way to a flare?  If so, what are those signs??
Thanks for any input.
Have a wonderful and painfree day!!

Can't say that I've noticed any warning when a flare is coming. I can go from very low pain to high pain in no time. Same with the energy, I can be doing something and suddenly feel like the energy has been sucked out of me and can't push myself to do more.
 
Maybe you over did it yesterday Patti and fibro is telling you so. That would suck fixing a nice dinner and not feel like eating it.
 
luv and hugs

I must relate to Chutzie in the sense that I have found no "warning signs", not yet at least.. I also can go from hardly any pain to extreme pain in no time..
 
Try to relax Patti and pace yourself!! Don't anger the Fibro nono lol. We all know how nasty she can get..

Patti, when I made Thanksgiving dinner for my family, I got so exhausted that I barely was able to carve the turkey.  When I sat down to dinner I was queasy and exhausted.  All I wanted to do was go to bed but I didn't give in to that.  I started eating the meal slowly and got my appetite back, along with some energy and ended up having a wonderful evening!
 
Now, when you don't eat, that will make your stomach upset and you will also feel weak.  It's important to eat because you will just make yourself feel worse.  Try keeping that in mind the next time this happens to you.
 
And, in answer to your main question, no, I have never had warnings.  Many times it's caused by barometric weather changes, weather being too warm or too cold, or just overdoing things.  You do need to pace yourself with this lousy illness.

Just like all of you, I can go from zero pain to extreme pain in a matter of seconds. I'll have to include a post with my story and how I
got diagnosed with fibro, but for the last 10 years I have been able to tell when a major flare is on it's way. I get very fatigued for a few days and
my arms and legs tingle and will "fall asleep" when in normal positions. But that is just when I am on route to a huge flare up. Those flare ups last for
months at a time. I have shorter flare ups that I have no inclination are coming. I have a lot of flares from like Sherrine said "barometric weather changes and over doing things." There's always something new contributing, so I never really know when the little flares will show up.

I pretty much get no warning either.  I don't even know I am in a flare until a couple hours after I have taken my morning pills.  It is about that time that I can normally start moving & the pain is better but if I am flaring it doesn't get any better.  Usually, I will hope for a few more hours that I am mistaken (denial), after that I have to throw in the towel & take it easy.  Hugs, Denise
