Dear Donnaeil: Well you have my attention. That virus was a very nasty one. I had it although fortunately it only hung around for four or five days but those days were mighty rough. I don't know if there is any relationship between recovery from the deadly virus and lessened symptoms from Fibro, except that the blessed relief the bug has moved on, is uplifting. I know when I spent four days rolling around in agony from a cracked molar, exposed nerve and all that fun stuff, Fibro was the last thing on my mind. That tooth made Fibro pain a walk in the park. I find the biggest problem with Fibro pain is not the pain itself so much as that it lingerssssss. It is the unrelenting nature of it, more than the acute pain itself. If it came and went in a day or two, and then there was a remisssion of a few days, well, then maybe I could stand it better. I expect that you have probably a bit of tolerance built up with the tylenol, and as you couldn't keep anything down, you probably weren't using much tylenol, so then when you started taking it again, it gave much more relief. I know when I go off my pain meds for a few days, when I start up taking them again, I get much better results.
