I was feeling so good after staring the malic acid/magneisum supplements.  When leaving work the other day, I tripped on the sidewalk and took a pretty good tumble.  Had a black and blue ankle, but other than that, nothing, UNTIL, last night and this morning.
I am soooooooo sore, from my neck to my feet.  I am so mad at myself for being such a klutz!!!  Just wondering if it would take a few days for such pain to start after falling???  I just dont get this DD, just so frustrated!!!

Invariably; I don't know what it's about, but day 1 of episode, fall, bruise, overdoing it, nothing. Then after another day or two, or three, the whole body hurt kicks in. I think the body can respond with the natural endorphins after intial trauma, but when that wears off, for us Fibromites who seem to take forever to heal, once that system steps back, we're left with days, sometimes weeks, of sore

Hi Sue,
Yeah, that happens to me too.  The delayed response is something I dread... Fibro blows....

This definitely happens to me, too. When I hurt myself or overdo it, it can take 2-3 days for the pain and flare to really kick in. I don't understand why this is, but you're definitely not alone on this one!

I am sorry you're feeling so sore today :( Please be gentle on yourself!

Sue, it easily could be a delayed reaction AND also the stress you are feeling about the passing of your supervisor.  It will get better.

Two years after a fall, I'm still waiting for my arm and shoulder to stop hurting. I've had MRI's and xrays....nothing shows up. So I get "it's just the fibro." Oh, just the fibro....well, no big deal then. Not a day goes by where I'm not affected from that fall.

I sure hope you don't have the same thing happen to you. Mine is probably rare....but that's what happens to me. I probably shouldn't have brought my trouble up, but we need to sometimes face what happens when a fibro person has any kind of trauma.

May you heal real quick, and not be affected. *hug*

Yes, Sue. Happens to me all the time. Sometimes that makes it difficult to know how to pace ourselves because of the delayed reaction. Hope you feel better soon.

Oh Sue, what next??? I'm sorry you fell. I don't get this DD, sometimes like today I over did it, and started hurting right away but other times it takes awhile for the pain to set in. Is your weather changing too??? I know we are in for yet another weather change tonight and I think the combo of doing too much and the up coming weather change is what has me hurting more than I should.
I feel like a klutz too, I've just been lucky but I can trip over a piece of lint on the floor.
Take a warm bath with epsom salts in it and get better soon.
luv and hugs

Delayed reactions are very common with fibro. It drives me crazy. Sometimes it takes so long for the pain to start up, I can't remember how I got hurt in the first place. I banged my side on a doorknob last Sunday. It hurt for a few minutes but then it went away and I forgot about it. When I woke up Wednesday, my side was so sore, I could barely move. It freaked me out until my husband reminded be about the doorknob and sure enough, the pain was in that spot. By Thursday, I was fine again.

My elderly parents were moving their travel trailer from up in the Arizona Mountains to California and ran off the freeway in the desert, down into the center ditch. They weren't hurt, thank God. They could have easily flipped over. But the trailer flipped on its side and was totaled. So I drove down there in a complete fog, 3 hours to get there and the next day went through the mess and loaded up all of their possessions into a u-haul trailer. It took all day and filled a 5 by 8 U-Haul. It was murder. 100 degree heat, no shade. The strangest part of this is that while I was doing it, I had absolutely no fog, no pain, no endurance problems. I about had heat stroke by the time I loaded the last box, but other then that, I thought I was superman. The next day I was fine. It kicked in the day after and I was in torment. It took about 6 months to get back to where I was before I did that.

I fell down the stairs in my house on Monday, but I was already in such a bad lupus and fibro flare I am not sure if I would have noticed if I was sore from it. I was just happy I didn't break something. I knew it was a mistake to move in a 2 story house. I have become so clumsy. :(
