 Good morning , ok a Q , how many wake up with a numb hand and slamming back pain ?
 
Nothing like waking up to slamming back pain and it's been pouring out !
 So, yesterday i had to rest a lot cause i over did it the day before cleaning. I wanted to
do something today but the rain changed that,and only had 4 hours sleep. I hate the weather controlling the fibro. It gets too cold, your in pain, it rains it hurts, barametric pressure goes off wacky , theres goes your in pain..
  So apparently Florida will be wet and hot and sticky, therefore my back, rt hand and arm  is Not happy today. any ideas for me to do something today ? < getting tired of resting in bed , docs orders .> so what take an extra pill and accomplish something ?? REally don't want to drive in this rain today..Maybe write in my fibro journel ? Wishing you a happy wonderfull beautifull day . May it be peacefull and pain free . turn (at least a little )

HIya Kit-Kat!

Well.. I have lots of back pain and every morning is a new and interesting adventure in the world of pain.  I've had back problems for EVER.  But lately its most definately worse than ever.  I have a lot of numbness in my hands too.. but not so much in the morning.. very stiff but not really numb.. that comes as the day wears on.

Just wanted to say.. I don't know what advice to give other than and nice warm shower.. but you're getting that naturally from your weahter. LOL.  Hey at least its warm!!  Its kinda chilly here in Indiana and we're getting rain too.  If its really warm I'm sure a heating pad or bed buddy doesn't sound really appealing but it would probably help.

Hope you feel better soon!!!!

Take care,

Hi Kit-Kat.  Boy do I ever hear you.  I have pain every morning but today is horrible.  I went to bed around 9:00 last night and woke up with terrible neck and back pains and the usual headache.  My hands are almost always numb when I'm in bed.  I got up twice in the middle of the night to soak in a tub of very warm water and I have a trick I do with a tennis ball where I lay on it and move to kind of give myself a massage.  I put it under my neck mostly.  Took as much med as safe then tried to sleep.  Dog woke me up before 7:00 so I'm taking her to the dog park to wear her out then I'm coming home to lay on a heating pad.  I'm in a climate without much rain but today we have a front coming in with high winds and this makes me feel as bad as the rain did when I lived in the midwest.  Weather is really a big factor for us isnt it.  I think I would not go out in the rain.  Try laying on a heating pad and hope the rain will pass. smilewinkgrin   Have a good book to read?

YES !
 
Here in Iowa - ( I'm a transplant from Phx, Az) the weather has been rainy, snowy - cold - then we rain - then we flood, then we sauna - no wonder I have been messed up ever since I've lived here.
 
My right hand is numb today - up to my elbow where it really starts to scream - I mopped cement floors yesterday - I clean for a living.
 
Beginning to see that may not be too realistic but neither is going back to healthcare running on my feet for 12 hours at a time.
 
*sigh*
 
now I see why my Dr said something about disability - I was so shocked - I thought we'd just get a magic pill - off and running - some good shoes and inserts - no problem kids - let's go play some B - ball !
 
I hope you have some relief today and just know your post made someone else feel not so alone and freakshowish !
 
Maybe there are openings for meteorologists ? How much school is that ?
 
LOL !

KitKat, Patti was referring to a Bed Buddy...they sell these at Walgreen's and other places...not a man!   smhair   You heat them in the microwave and they give off moist heat.  You can make your own by taking a tube sock, filling it 2/3's full of raw rice and tying a knot at the end.

Thanks for my morning laugh!    turn

Kat, you do NOT wet the rice.  There is moisture already in the rice and when  you heat it, it gives off moisture.  Just put raw rice in the sock, knot the end, and microwave it.  I have a rice pillow that my massage therapist made for me and it's wonderful, too.  Enjoy!

Ah Kat, you are a treat!!!! (((((hugs)))))) When I am in a flare & sick & unable to do anything I watch movies & read books & do crossword puzzles & crochet all things I save up for a flare. When I am really sick or in lots of pain, the only thing I even half way enjoy is watching movies. Here in Montana the weather is still changing too. Rain, snow & blue sky have been changing places on a very rapid schedule so I haven't been feeling to well either. How you do so much work is beyond me, I used to work like that, really I did. I also, had a cleaning business years ago. I had my ladies (my regulars), I painted apartments at an apartment complex, I cleaned new construction for a contractor & I cleaned new mobile homes at a mobile home dealership. I worked from 6 in the morning to 9 at night. Hard work, I know so I have to give you a "high five". Maybe you can try just going down to one job, is that financially doable? In this economy it is hard, I know. I haven't been able to work for 4 years. Wow, 4 years, hard to believe. You take care of yourself OK? Hugs, Denise
