So I think I'm in a sort of flare-only a sort of one, though, because all of the pains aren't crashing down on me at once-I'm just having a terrible time with the burning. Do you all know what I mean? That awful, deep, terrible sensation that your muscles are on fire? I'm feeling it something awful in my legs, back, and shoulders right now. Every time I bend over or stretch up to grab something or turn the wrong way-ouch!!!! It feels like I ran a 3 day triathalon without training beforehand!smhair

To make it all better, my carpal tunnel is also acting up so I'm getting stabbing pains in my wrists and fingers. Basically, I'm a mess right now!

So what do you guys do for the burning? When it hits me, I want to live in the bathtub, but unfortunately my sensitive skin won't let me do that. I'm also best friends with my heating pad and bed buddy right now. It's not really helping the pain go away, but it's comforting me in an emotional way and keeping me from breaking down (which I am on the verge of doing!)

I am still exercising and still avoiding caffeine and sugar and that does help, but this gosh darn burning feeling is driving me crazy right now. I guess I just needed to complain for a minute-boo HISS!!!

Oh Danielle, I'm sorry your having the burning. I went through two weeks last June of feeling like acid was running through my body, it is the worse. I used my TENS unit, it was the only thing that took my mind off of the burning some.
 
I hope it gets better soon!!!!

You seem to be doing all of the regular things already soooo you need a diversion.  How about popping a funny movie in the recorder and grabbing some popcorn to enjoy during the movie.  Ice cream helps, too!  devil

Or, go through that box of family pictures you have been wanting to do.  Seeing them will put a smile on your face and you might forget about  your discomfort. 

Or, think of a great topic you want to know more about and hit the Internet and learn a little about it. 

It's these types of things I do when I'm really miserable.  They don't take much physical effort but they do help to take your mind off your problems and put you in a better frame of mind.  This, in turn, helps with the pain...at least for me!  Feel better, Danielle!

I hate the burning pain. I hope you find a good distraction to help you get through this. It will pass.

Aww Danielle, I'm so sorry you're hurting so much.  That deep burning pain just nags the you know what out of you.  I don't know what to tell you to make you feel better.  But just know I'm thinking about you and hope you feel some relief soon.

Verrrrrry gentle hugs,

Hey, my dearies :)

Well, I'm still burning, but I keep on truckin'. What else can I do, right?

What I want to know is-Sherrine! How did you know I have a giant box of pictures that I've been wanting to organize for literally YEARS now? lol! It's up in our attic and every couple of months or so I will say to hubby "I really need to organize that box of pictures"..maybe I'll get them out this weekend. No-wait. We are helping our in-laws move and I also have to make centerpieces for my sister's baby shower. So..maybe next weekend! No-wait again. That's the weekend of the baby shower itself AND my dad's birthday, so scratch that. Um....see-this is why the box is still sitting in the attic!

Thanks for the good thoughts. I wuv you guys. :-)

Danielle, doesn't everyone have a box of pictures to go through?  devil    I have TWO boxes of pictures to go through.  I want to make individual albums for each of my three children but I never seem to find the time.  BUT, I will do that next time I'm really miserable.
