Am i the only one who sometimes has days where my clothes against my skin hurts? It burns. Also, does it usually hurt when you lay on the floor or something for example and your on your side? cause my ribs are always so sore it takes lots of padding. They feel bruised

I think this is a problem many of us have. I myself can't wear anything but loose clothing because of the very things you mentioned.

After being out in public and having to dress appropriatley, I run in the house, pull my clothes off and put on my flannel or cotton P.J. bottoms.  I haven't worn a bra in years, and on those occasions when I just have to, I have been known ot go in the rest room, take it off and put it in my purse.  Certain fabrics with a knap or texture drive me crazy...it's like I can feel every fiber of them against my skin.

I have to cut all the tags out of my tops. The skin on my upper back is so sensitive. I also
look for soft fabrics and clothing that doesn't bind. Fibromites like things comfy!

Bra and pants come off the minute I walk into the house. My family knows to warn me immediately if they have a guest so I don't strip as soon as I walk in the door.

I like loose clothing but sometimes I like to wear a stretchy tank top under a baggy shirt. The tank top fits snugly and keeps the other shirt from rubbing on my skin. The kind with a shelf bra helps when I am PMSing and extra tender.

I usually prefer hoods on my jackets and sweaters so the hood pulls the fabric back and off of my neck.

I only wear "girl shoes" when I have no choice. I wear sneakers most of the time, even when I wear skirts.

Hi Finding and welcome to our family. Lay on the floor, you have got to be kidding??? On those rare occasions when I have to get on the floor for some reason I have to make sure something is close enough to help me back up. I can't stand laying on a seam in my night shirt on a soft mattress. I know I'm driving my DH crazy with the tight bottom sheet thing we go through every night cause I can't stand a wrinkle in it.
 
Casual dressing: sweat pants, T-shirt, fleece jacket or coat, heavy socks and over size very comfy shoes. Dressing up: loose fitting jeans, bra, nicer soft knit top, socks, shoes (like Grasshoppers or what i use to call old woman shoes) and I always take a fleece jacket in case I get cold. On rare occasions I will wear a few pieces of jewelry, like my rings. smilewinkgrin
 
This is coming from a woman that before fibro wouldn't go out to do yard work without make up on and every hair in place. tongue
 
luv and hugs

I lay on the floor last night to pet my dog and had to get up immediately because I thought I was crushing myself to death! I've been at home from work for the past two weeks because I haven't been able to put on clothes. I've just been able to wear my silk longjohns and thermal top around the house, barefoot, no socks even. There are these times when anything burns on my skin, it is so uncomfortable.

Thanks for the reminder, ladies, I wanted to share something I keep forgetting about. I ordered a couple of stretchy tank tops with built-in shelf bras and I can actually tolerate them! They are not tight, and if I have to go out when I'm flaring like I did today, to the grocery store, I just put it on over my themal top and then put my winter coat on over it. (My winter coat is very light down, which is almost weightless, thank goodness.) If you haven't tried the built-in brassiere tank tops you see in clothing catalogs, go on and try. Just make sure it is a shelf and not an underwire.

Dagger, you are so funny! I do the exact same thing except my BF has stopped warning me if someone is over. Just to be funny. (right!) So, all my friends have seen me tearing off some kind of clothing!

The other night I felt miserable when the blanket and quilt touched me. so I slept in the nude, my usual way, without being under the blankets. I had to choose between freezing and irritation. gee.

I remember telling friends about how much clothes hurt. their response was, "I did not see that mentioned on the Lyrica commercial." I explained that the symptoms of fibro are rarely explained. My buddies at the pool have donated bras to me and keep asking why I do not wear unmentionables. I hope they give up this practice one day. I am the topic of discussion about clothing several times per month in the locker room.

I honestly thought i was an oddball for not wearing a bra cus i just cannot tolerate them friends would make jokes but i also never really knew why they bothered me so much until now. Thank you all for sharing with me. And yes ive tried the shelfbra tanks actually back when i was younger i borrowed one from a cousin for the first time and i loved them since they are the best way ive found to get away without having to wear a bra but not be horribly uncomfortable!!

I have a few friends that swear by maternity pants. The newest ones look like regular jeans but are stretchy around the waist, they don't have that ugly panel in the front. You can't tell they are maternity, especially if you don't tuck in your shirt.

I've been tempted but I need the tighter waistband to let me know when I am overdoing the ice cream.
