Saturday was my granddaughter's baptism and party. I danced during the party, but was careful to pace myself and not dance song after song, but rest in between. Saturday I moved a gravel path (laid plastic and shoveled gravel). I was perfectly fine without much trouble.

Yesterday I walked from my office to or from my car 3 times (10 minutes each) without my cane. Then later last night I walked to the end of the back driveway and back (about 1/3 to 1/2 a mile round trip) and about half way back could barely walk. I barely got back to the house and hobbled painfully around the house and had to park in the disabled spot very near my office this morning.

Hubby says that must mean that I have to dance everywhere instead of walk! This is so dang unpredictable. You never know what to expect!

Sue, I have to agree with you. Fibro is unpredictable. The only thing predictable with fibro
is that you know at some point, fibro is going to flare. Sometimes there is no ryhme nor
reason for it. It can just happen. I still try to pace myself and try not to throw caution to
the wind, but if fibro wants to flare, it does.

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Hugs, Robin

It sounds like a delayed reaction with the dancing and shoveling gravel. I sure do miss dancing. I do it around the house somethimes. When nobody is looking. I hope that you feel better soon. Take care my friend.  And keep enjoying the dancing!!!

Hugs, Karen

It also sounds like a delay from the dancing.  I find that I have a delay in flare/pain.  At times I can't connect why I have gotten a flare, so yes fibro is quite unpredictable. So wonderful that you got to dance and do some walking.  I hope you are feeling better.

Yes, wouldn't it be nice if a little voice chimed in when you're approaching the Danger Zone of overdoing it, "Ok, that's enough! No more!" But I guess that would just be too easy. We couldn't have that.

I seem to flare at times when there is no rhyme or reason as to what causes it. Sometimes, it is obvious that I have overdone it. However, at other times, I will have had a very liesurely few days prior to a flare. I agree that sometimes there seems to be a delayed reaction, where overdoing it does not seem to catch up with us for a few days or even a week later. Only one thing seems to be certain with me. Major changes in the weather nearly always bring about flares. A couple of hours before a storm, I begin aching all over, and it gets progressively worse for the duration.

wow, thanks for the responses. It did not even remotely occur to me that it could be a delayed reaction! Then yesterday I realized that I had a flare before the dancing - so the week went like this:
Tuesday: big flare and had to take big medicine
Wednesday still sick (from med and flare) and stayed home from work
Thursday almost normal
Friday: moved heavy furniture at work because of fire inspection (some of it by myself)
Saturday: danced
Sunday: moved heavy gravel path

Wednesday night: walked short distance and barely got back home!

Today (Saturday again) I can still barely walk and want to do stuff. Not sure how I will do it!

I have know I had fibro for almost 2 years and finished my fibro care class just last August. You'd think I would know this!

Sue,
Don't feel bad - I've known I've had fibro for almost 20 years, and I still do too much, the wrong things, at the wrong times! Not as often, but more often than you'd think. Sometimes, I think we operate on autopilot, our brains go back to a time before fibro, and we get caught just "doin what comes natur'ly."
