Jazzmyn, sounds like you have a full blown flare going on, they are painful. Sorry you
are hurting. Have you tried soaking in a hot bath?It helps alleviate some of the pain. I
take a muscle relaxer Flexeril (cyclobenzaprine) when I am flaring. it does make you
tired; but if you take it before bed it helps you get a better night's sleep.
Don't stop exercising, do some gentle stretching, you don't want to become anymore
stiff or achy than you already are. Use a heating pad or bedbuddy, heat is a fibromite's
friend. Flares are painful but luckily they don't last forever. I feel your pain, I just got
over a long flare myself and I know how they hurt.
Hope your massage helps. Call your doctor and let him know you are flaring.
Sending you gentle hugs
