Just curious, how long do your Fibro flares last?  I notice that I will have about 3-5 bad days then I am better.  How long do yours usually last?
 
Thanks for your thoughts!

The length of flares are as predictable as how  you will feel each day.  In other words, there is no set pattern.  I've had flares last a few days and I've had flares last as long as six months!  But, I don't dwell on it.  I know I will feel better some time and I am always hoping it will be the next day.  This way, I don't get depressed about it.  I just keep moving and living my life and try to find things to occupy my mind to take it off how I feel.

I hope you are feeling better soon!

Ok that makes sense............because sometimes they are worse than others. Most times its for 3-5 days as I stated before, but sometimes it seems to last alot longer.

Hi Gail,

I am presently into week 2 of a flare. My flares really vary in length and severity.
There have been times when a flare would be as short as a half day. My longest flare
lasted a few months. I wish the time between flares would be longer! I take these flares one
day at a time. I know they don't last forever, thankfully!!!

I believe my current flare is due to the weather. Hope you have a flare free day!

Hey Nanners...I was perfectly fine yesterday and woke up burning from my nose holes to my toenails...got the goose-bump/shiver  thing going on and even my hair hurts.  I am commanding this flare to last until midnight.  But....I have had them last for months and some for only a few days.
 
Weird, unpredictable disease, huh?  Hey, that woman in the newest Lyrica commercial can work in a restaurant and carry a tray of food over her head!  Uh...I don't think so.

Donna, that was hilarious! Yeah I haven't had a flare lately because the weather has been warmer and for some strange reason I seem to do better in the warmer months. But today is kinda hazy and cooler, and yikes the pain has returned. When you have Fibro and Osteo its always an adventure trying to figure out which one is causing your problems:) Heavy sigh!!

I woke up Saturday morning feeling the worst I've felt in a long time. Agony from head to toe. There was no reason for it. I did nothing to bring this on. I lay on the couch moaning and writhing all morning. Hubby kept asking do I want to go shopping, what do I want to do, we could go to the Oulet mall, anything I wanted. But all I could do was lay on the couch. I finally fell asleep around 2:30 and woke up a little after 3:00 feeling... almost good! No fog or anything! I was shocked. Usually a nap makes the fog worse. So I finally got dressed and we went out for dinner and a little shopping and I was fine. So, yeah a flare can be months, or hours, who knows. There's nothing predictable about fibro.

Donna, you are too funny! LOL

My flares are unpredictable as well. They usually last quite a while, but not all the time.

 I do the  writhing and moaning, too.The couch seems to be my best friend at night. I do ok during the day
most times, but when it's cool and damp at night I still have trouble. Do you drool during the moaning? I'm
worried about progressing to that stage even though I've come close a couple of times.

Mine feel like contractions - they keep coming, getting worse, and more frequent. It is only a few days in between widespread pain for a day. Today I had to stay home from work.

Flares last 3-5 days. Bad ones 2-3 weeks. Well only for me.

I'm on day 5 of mine with Wednesday being the worse day. Now that the weekend is here I can finally get some rest and hopefully it will go away.
