I have a question.  Is fibro a constant sharp pain?  Or is it like an achieness all over with sometimes sharp pains.?  Is it bearable at times?  But other times really bad?  Also...I get so aggravated because I can't seem to write or type anymore.  I will try to write an e but it comes out an a and I transpose letters when typing.  I get so mad.  Like I said in aother post I have not been diagnosed, I am just curious as to how the pain is with others.  I guess that was more that 1 question...LOL

Yes I guess it was, but you know what? That is okay...

Fibro pain can vary from person to person. Sometimes it is a burning pain, sometimes it aches, and I imagine some people get sharp pain at one time or another. It can be bearable at times and at times it can be excrutiating.

And it sounds like you are experiencing some fibrofog. That is common because you tend to focus on the pain, but I try to distract myself from the pain, but it doesn't always help relieve the fog.LOL...

I hope that you get a diagnosis soon.

Best wishes,
hugs, Karen

I think Karen did a good job with the answers for you. I have had everyone of those problems listed in your post and they all come and go. The fog is the worse for me cuz I have to have a sharp memory for my job. I have to remember everything that I need and everything that I have packed up in boxs in the store room. I work for Hallmark doing the cards in a large chain store.

If you are looking for some relief try a warm bath or shower. Don't make it a hot one cuz that just makes you tired. At least it does me cuz I don't have just fibro any more.

Best of luck with a dx,
