So i know last night i was feeling kinda achey and groggy, then this morning I was really groggy and this aftneroon , like lightning BOOM full blown flare. I really need to learn the signs of impending flares and what triggers them, cause looking back i cant think of anything that would have triggered this. I was just getting to a point where i could cope with the pain i was having too.. bummer!
Does anyone have impending "hurricane warnings" of an impending flare? Or do you know if certain things cause you to flare?And can a flare just come on like an earthquake?
idea  And I just realized i made reference to alot of natural disasters, hhmm maybe my body is warning me of something in nature to occur.

Sorry you are having such a bad flare up. How high of a dosage are you taking of effexor. It might be that you need to cut back on the dosage to give your body time to adjust. I do agree though that you should call your dr.
Praying you feel better soon.

Angela,
It's so hard to tell sometimes. And then other times, I know it's because I cleaned up cat puke/shopped too long/moved my garden hose too early in the morning/God only knows....

Effexor made me feel like my heart was beating too hard, so off I went.

I know when a good one is coming by the tightness in my muscles from overdoing. Its hard to pace myself when I finally get enough energy to do housework and such. Today i overdid when I went shopping with the hubby. We dont have a car and I told him"no problem ,sure I can carry those bags". I not only was hurting,I ended up with my sugars bottoming out and had to have dh open the candy wrappers for me. I had to take a bunch of smarties candy to even get it up to the low 70's and for me thats very low.

Yesterday I was so tired and the aches started before I went to bed. Woke up this morning in pain and very stiff. Did nothing to bring this on.

I think flares can have some warning signs.

Flares hit sometimes for no reason. Sometimes I know I'll be flaring because of over
doing. Abrubt weather changes throw me into a flare too. Fibro has a mind of it's own!

Overdoing and barometric changes cause mine.  Summers are my worst time because it is hot and humid.  When I lived up north the winters were my worst time because of the cold.  Don't usually have that in the winters here in Florida.
 
The important thing is to know how to handle the flares because they can come for no reason.  Also, keep in mind they can leave as fast as they came.  That thought helps me deal with them.
