I am hopeful and I will explain why I think this maybe what is happening being spring I decided to do a bit of spring cleaning and yes I was expecting the pain that went with it. Yesterday I got stuck into do a bit of a clean out and used a lot of garbage bags my husband is a horder anyhow I did not feel to bad when I had finished. In fact I did the washing then and still felt great no acking anything. Last night I was sore but not bad. Today I feel great no PAIN at all. Not even a headacke and I have had one of those everyday. I slept 7 hours with no medication in me. So maybe its the sleep that has helped I really don't know. I will be careful just in case it is just some fluke.But I wanted to share this with all of you. This is how it happened last time it just was not there when I woke up.

Kathy, I love to hear when others go in to remission. That's something to truly celebrate!

That is good news! Enjoy each day, but like Spirit said, be careful not to over do.
Wishing you the best of luck Kathy!

Congrats; I had a bit of a remission, in August. I actually thought I'd struck gold in my combos of vitamins, natural remedy (s), food choices, etc. Then as the weather had began to change here in North America, I am feeling all the old familiar aches and pains seeping back in. Oh, well. Also, I am having memory problems. I put important papers away, and several weeks later, when I need them, I cannot for the life of me, find them again. My Grandmother, and Father had early onset alzheimers, and now I know how incredibly frustrating it was, for them. I want to chastise myself, but that won't get it done. So off I go on hunt # 37 looking for those papers. I am glad you have a break in the symptoms, if you know of anything special you've done to bring it on, pls. let us know.

How wonderful for you!! I guess I had a remission this spring too, I thought I was cured and got off my meds :P Not a good idea btw! I had no idea there was such a thing with fibro. Enjoy your time, but still be careful not to turn into superwoman. :)

I did really well this summer, much less pain. But the season changes are really starting to effect me now. Enjoy it as the others have said, but don't get too crazy with stuff.

And to tyno3, be sure to look in the wierdest places for your paperwork, cuz you know us Fibromites, its usually in the freezer or someplace wierd like that:)

Thank-you, Nanners; It (my paperwork), is not in the freezer, cause all there is in there are some frosty chicken nuggets, the dogs enjoy. So....., I had to call for duplicates. You know, once I get the duplicates all dressed, the originals will show up. Always the way, remission. Boy, what a concept. If we could figure out the magic variables it takes to have a "remission" then we'd be part way to a cure. Not soon enough, I say. I have gone done the superwoman thing, as I mentioned in an earlier post, and am all twisted up and in pain, b/c of it. Even had to cancel a Doctor's appt. cause, I was too sore and achy to drive my truck *standard tranny, 2nd and 4th gears only, working. Takes a lot of intensity and stress holding to get around town. So, I sent the lad off with a fifty dollars and 2 gears, in search of some relief. If he comes back with relief, so be it. If he doesn't come back, well, that's two problems solved. Boy, what a relief. Regards
