 Travelling pain in the FASCHIA of your body that jumps around????
I can get excruciating pain in what feels like the skin and muscle in my back, side, front that really hurts and then disappears within 10 minutes, only to be replaced by pain somewhere else.??? It's driving me crazy!!!

Hi, Tair, and welcome!  Yes, many of us have that problem.  I see a massage therapist who works the knots out of the muscles.  The fascia will move and overlap and that is very painful. 
 
Be sure to check out Fibro 101...the second thread on the forum.  There are links to good information about fibromyalgia and you will learn a lot there. 
 
I hope you are feeling a little better and it is always good to know you are not alone.  I hope to hear more from you soon.

Hi Tair,

Welcome to the fibromyalgia forum. There is so much information in fibro101. Please do check it out. I am sure that it will help you.

I am sorry that you are in so much pain. The weather here is cloudy and rainy and I totally understand your pain as I am having it too.

I hope that you feel better soon. Take care, keep posting.

Hugs, Karen

Tair,
 
Oh yes, that's the most consistent and frustrating thing about Fibro (at least, for me) - wondering, "Ok, NOW what did I do?"  confused    I've had it so long that I usually don't stress over the cause of it anymore, I just spend my energy on dealing with it.  I just think, oh brother, here we go with THAT pain again, who knows why??  Well, sometimes I know why   turn   Not that it ever really makes sense, because I'm not doing anything that would cause anything at all in most people, but if you think that way too much you will drive yourself crazy.  It's not fair.  But it's not a symptom of anything dangerous, either. 
 
That said, of course you have to make sure there's nothing else going on.  If you keep coming back to this forum, I'm sure it can help you a lot.  There is such a variety of people with different experiences and knowledge.  The moderators, especially, are great and have probably heard it all. 
 
Try not to worry!  That only makes it worse.

Wow... does it ever feel good to be acknowledged.
 
I may be a newbie to this forum, but I think, even though diagnosed 4 years ago at the age of 60, I believe I have had FM since my late twenties (off and on).
 
Fibro fog also comes and goes. What is incredible to me, is that I become totally aware of the fog descending, and I can tell when it  is lifting.
 It's  the time in between when I feel  totally unreliable to myself.
 I think I am mentally gone, and that time varies with every episode.
I only have a few people that know this fibrofog secret of mine, and I see no reason to let more people in on it. nono
 
 
 I have been on cymbalta 30 mg  for the past 2 years, and it has done wonders for my mood and I suspect it has also helped my FM. I am supposed to double the dose for a fog episode. It makes a difference, I find in the duration.
 
Can anyone tell me of their fibro fog experiences??
 Thanks in advance.

Hi and welcome to the forum. My pain seems to be deep musle pain and it drives me crazy. Right now hubby is sittin g with my bed buddy on his back because he pulled a muscle. I tried to explain that I feel that almost all the time and not in the same spot, he still didn't "get it". Oh well, maybe someday he will.

about the fibro fog....... I just started to laugh while reading that even tho I can't think of mine right now. I am sure hoping that you get some good stories.

Now there's a subject.   You know, sometimes I think I've always had the fog.  I've forever been labelled a "spacehead," but in retrospect, I wonder if it was more than that....the most glaring example was when, at 13, I leaned back against the gas burner I had JUST LIT and started reading.  Wow, was I ever surprised when I realized my back was on fire.   cry   It was a horrible ordeal which left me needing a skin graft on a large area.  I've long thought (I'm 55) that this might have been what triggered my fibro; but lately I've wondered if it was actually CAUSED by it.  
 
In high school, I was on the track team.  I won one of the races in a big meet; that is, I would have if I'd run the whole distance.  I mistook a lighter line in the gravel for the finish line, until everyone else ran way past me.  Oops! blush Again, I just thought my head was in the clouds.  My coach wasn't too amused...
 
I must have left my purse on top of the car or in the grocery cart literally 30 times (I may have a guardian angel because I've always gotten everything back!)  I  can misplace anything, anytime, anywhere.  My husband says, "Whatever you do, don't put it in a safe place, you'll never see it again!"  and he's right.  I can be reading something that I know is satire, and halfway through start taking it seriously. 
 
I so rarely DO feel my brain is firing on all cylinders that it's a good thing I don't have to keep it from people generally.  Just last night, I took food to the wrong dinner on the wrong night at the wrong time.  It's a wonder to me that I function as well as I do!  turn   My parents were a bit absent-minded themselves (not from fibro) so maybe they didn't think I was that odd.  The brain is a mysterious organ, for sure! 
 
What about your stories?

For me, personally, I really seldom find anything 'amusing' about my foggy times. I get anxious when I forget names especially, and it seems to spiral downwards from there .
I sometimes become so unsure of my abilities that I stay away from situations that require me to be sharp.I leave notes for myself almost like a crib sheet. I go through a lot of notepaper and pens!!!
However,I really do have a good sense of humour, which I find the greatest asset.
But the weirdest part is that when I am in a fog I can actually feel as though I am conscious of every part of my environment, my actions and reactions at every moment, hoping that I won't be called upon to have to know something that I've just plum forgotten.
I do tell my partner, when the fog descends that he has to help me by telling and reminding me of things more frequently.
That is liberating!!

tair, I am sorry I did not mean that I was laughing AT you but laughing at myself for my foggy times.  I should have clarified that.  It is what happens when I watch TV and try to type at the same time.  Sometimes if I don't laugh at myself I think I would just cry. 
 
I forget names too, all the time.  One time I was trying to say something about one of the bird feeders outside and it came out like this:  "you know.......that wire cage thingy that the solid food goes in??"  it was the suet feeder.

Tair: I can relate. But it is good that you have someone that understands when you are in a fog.

My b/f does too for the most part. He has been really trying to understand my heat waves which I believe are from Firbo but also from Menapusesing also.

I watch children and sometimes when I'm talking to a parent I forget things and kind of stutter. It is so embrassing. But they all seem to understand and are great.

The pain yeah that gets to me too. I make a joke out of it on some days, when my shines hurt like someone has kicked me, if Mitch is around I'll laugh and tell him that the old ghost just walked up and kicked me. Lately though because of the weather and I think I have arthis too it gets bad. Lately I have been having pain around the base of my neck and it will wake me up but then after a few minutes it goes away and there's pain somewhere else.

I hope you get to feeling better.
