Hi Kitkat, Sorry you are hurting. You probably got a workout today, lots of bending, twisting
and lifting, plus being on your feet for an extended period of time. If you haven't already,
soak in a hot bath to relax your muscles and do some gentle stretching.
I also have fibro, MCTD and back problems. I'm sure you know when your back is bad, you have
to be extra careful when bending and lifting. I take some of the same meds you take, Savella
and Flexeril for fibro. I used to take plaquenil but now I am on Methotrexate for the MCTD.
You will probably be stiff and sore tomorrow and might want to soak in a hot bath again.
I have been using elastic bands and hand weights to try to strengthen my upper body.
Walking has been a good exercise for building muscle and relieving stress.
Hoping you feel better soon!
