Hi! I can't seem to find anything on this one. This week I am exhausted and can hardly stay awake. Usually I can't sleep at all. I am also in a lot of muscle pain. I haven't been able to do a thing other than dishes & cooking. That and sleep is about all I have done. Does anyone have any clues, tips etc.

Sounds like typical fibromyalgia to me. Are you taking any medications that might make you sweat? There are some medications that do that. I am sweating but it is super hot here atm.

I hope that you feel better soon.

Ugh! I kinda thought so. It's just the sweating that threw me.
I think it is my meds. I just don't know which one.
I'm gonna start with the most recent change (this week) and see what the side effects are.

I have my granddaughter (3) for a month and really want to have fun with her.
My son (her Uncle) is very helpful when he is home and she is in daycare during the week.
I just have to figure out how to make the weekends and bedtime go a little better.
Is there a link that talks about dealing with preschoolers and fibro?
thanks

Hi wannasew I just wanted you to know that I can totally relate to hard it is to have a preschooler around. I have my grandson every Saturday evening till Sunday evening. He will be 2 next month and is a bundle of energy. I dont think I could do a whole month I would drop from exaustion. I love him so much but when your hurting it is so hard to keep him out of trouble. If you come across a sight for preschoolers and fibro let me know. lol

Yep...sweating is a huge issue for me. Just on my face and head though. I know alot of it is from my meds but my doc says some is fibro related too. I hate it! Very embarrassing at times.

Sweating and fatigue are certainly issues I deal with. The sweating was made MUCH worse when my Doc put me on Savella for the fibro. Some meds can really show their side effects, so maybe looking into the side effects and whatever you are taking can answer that question. Maybe doing things that don't require a lot of physical effort when having your grandchild would help. Play "baby takes a nap" and see if you can get a little extra rest. Nap when they nap, and just take really good care of yourself. Hope you have fun with your grandkids!

1200 mg. Asacol 3 times daily for Crohn's, 12.5 mg. Savella per day along with Tramadol for pain for the Fibro, and right now, not much for the PA.
I'm not going to take this lying down.

I think it's my anti-cholestrol medicine. I felt great all day until I took it. now I have that tearing burning feeling in my legs along with uncontrolled sweats. UGH!! Exertion makes it much worse! I just complained about the pain from the Vytorin so they switched me to Tricor. It was very expensive even with just the co-pay. Oh how I hate this ginnie pig game they play with us. I need to find a med for cholestrol that doesn't make me want to crawl outta my skin.
I guess for now I take it at night but ... I wonder what effect it will have on my sleep.
It's almost bedtime for my granddaughter so at least we had a really good day so far.

For some reason I will break out in a cold sweat at night. During the day I am freezing. Dr. says I'm not pre-menopause. I think this is connected to the pain somehow.

I noticed that once I started the Cymbalta, my hot flashes and sweating got worse (it started with surgical menopause a few years ago). My doctor prescribed medication to help reduce the number of them I get and it's helped somewhat, but oh, when I do get one, it's just horrid. I literally am dripping with sweat...it runs in rivers down my face and neck and the intensity sometimes makes me feel a bit nauseous.

I generally wear a cold wet towel around my neck to try and keep them at bay....it does help. I noticed something interesting this weekend though - I was at Family Camp with a bunch of friends from church and spent most of the weekend in my camp chair by the fire. I don't recall having a single hot flash the whole weekend I was in the outdoors. As soon as I was home, boom! there they were again. Got me wondering if Vitamin D has something to do with it. I am taking supplements and my last blood tests showed I was deficient, so it's a theory on my part.

I think I'll be spending more time outside in the sunshine! I can't take HRT because it causes migraines for me, so sunshine it is!!
