Fibromyalgia since 2007
Hi Kerri...I have always described my pain as an aching/burning flu like sensation. Last night, for the first time ever, I woke up feeling like I was beeing stabbed in my calf with a knife. It would come and go but wake me up. The pain has also moved from my lower back up to my shoulder blades and neck over the past few months. So...I'm just chalking it up to fibro and the wonders it brings us every day!
Oh, yes! The pain can come out of nowhere. Sometimes I don't know how I can stand it BUT I do know it will leave. I've never had the extremely intense, unbearable pain last. Like you, I start feeling a little better.
Last night after dinner both hips felt like I was being stabbed. I could hardly walk and needed to get the cane out but this morning I'm better. I still have the pain but it isn't as intense. I guess it goes with the territory. Just anticipate when the pain will leave..because it will!
