Hi Kathy-

Just wanted to say I'm sorry you are feeling so poorly -- sometimes it is good to just let yourself have a completely down day - take a warm bath if you can and crawl under the covers.

I do hope you are feeling better soon.

Hi Kathy,

I felt so bad when I read what you wrote and so understand. Try to do everything you can to get your mind of it. Believe me when I say I know that is not easy much of the time.

At least know someone is thinking about you. It will get better.

Hi Kathy,
I can tell by the way you are writing and the misspellings that fibro flare has set in big time.  My writing and thinking (that should be non-thinking. LOL) tend to do the same thing when I'm having a bad day.  I'm in a flare myself but am much better than yesterday which was a doozy. 
Just know you are being thought about and there are people out there who truly understand how you are feeling.  That "want to cry" feeling---I get that too once in a while and it is so "not me"  that it is really distracting to say the least.  Hang in there girl and get lots of rest, get out that heating pad  and get better.

Kathy, so sorry you are feeling so miserable. I hate to cry and yet, I get days like that. Sometimes, I think I feel better when I let it out. It releases some of that stress. Take the time for you today, and hopefully, you will be feeling so much better tomorrow.

A nice warm bath, a cup of tea, a bit of rest, hopefully that's the ticket!

God bless.  Alice.

Hi Kathy, So sorry you are hurting! Flares are definately crummy.
Somedays are made for crying, this is your day. It does feel good to let it all
out. There are those days when flares are just overwhelming and you just want the
pain to stop. Today is the right day to pamper yourself. Take a long leisurely soak in
a hot bath, watch an old movie, do something just for yourself and relax. Hope you feel
better soon.

cry  Hi Kathy   sorry your feeling so down today. I can totally relate to that.  Last week I had such a bad flare up.  Every muscle and joint in my body hurt. No meds that I was taking helped. It lasted for 2 long days. I laid low and did very little. On the 3rd day it started to ease up.  I toke a hot bath an laid on the couch for the 2 days. You are not alone.  Baby yourself and take it very slow. I wanted to cry to and sometimes I do. When I do I feel better mentally. No one knows how much pain there is until they experience it for themselves. I hope you feel better. Hopefully the flare up won't last to long. You are in my prayers.

Hi Kathy haven't seen you on here for awhile. I woke up about 5:00 this morning with shooting pains from my neck going up into my head so I know what you mean about the neck. I have a tub full of pillows in my closet and keep changing to find the right one for the night. Part of mine is arthritis so I can't blame it all on fibro.
What is the weather down under doing this time of year???
I think we do need to take a day every once in awhile and give ourselves permission to do nothing but you still have to keep stretching or you will be even worse.
Hang in there. I would think Santa would give us all the month of Dec off for good behavior from fibro.
luv and hugs

Hi Kathy
I am having a flare too, but not the don't touch my skin type, just muscle pain. I take prescription pain meds, especially tramadol. OTC meds don't work. Antiinflamatories don't help much.

Depression is common with fibro flares. I get out and go to a support group. Any kind will do. Tonight I went to Weight Watchers. I don't even have any weight left to lose. I can't take antidepressants because they give me suicidal thoughts, which scares me. I'm not really like that! I get over it if I can control the pain.

If I am getting decent sleep it helps. I am having luck with Neurontin (gabapentin) just 100 mg about 7-8 PM because it lasts for 12 hours. Lyrica caused me weight gain. I can't take antidepressants. Benzos only work for me a couple of days a week max. After that I start to get a tolerance for them.

If you are having pain from something else it can trigger the flare. I am having spine pain, sciatic pain triggering my flare. I have an appointment for another facet joint injection, wish I could get more than one joint done a month.

I too am so sorry you are so miserable. I would guess that every one of us has felt that way at one time. Have you talked to your doc about depression? I remember when I first knew I needed help. My doctor obviously spotted it before me and did offer to let me try some medications to see if it would help. Well, stubborn and stupid me was going to grin and bear it. Thought I could beat it by just trying harder. What a goofball I was. No way was I going to take an antidepressant.

It was 2 years of feeling miserable before I told doc that I give up and was ready to try something...anything to help stop the crying and awful moods. It has helped tremendously. Something you might want to consider. Keep in touch and let us know how you're doing tomorrow or sooner!

Thanks everybody, well we have summer here so no heating pads for me, hang on they may be cooler then the weather here, well I have been up for 24 hours now it will be about 36 before I get any sleep. We had rain here today again I am not going to knock it we have had no rain in months and everything was dying even the old trees where stressed. One thing I can say I did not go into a flare when the weather changed and tonight I feel heaps better.
I do not take meds from the doctor as they do not work or I have too take so many they are just not worth it anymore, once upon a time I took 480mg of ms cotin [morphin] in one dose twice a day for about 3 years or more. Never again I turned into a zombi now I only take pain killers when I CAN STAND IT NO MORE. My trip to the hospital for my knee last Friday proved that Doctors will hand out pain killers lie water, they got upset when I would not take teir drugs, I am so glad I did because the one they tried to give me would of made me very sick. One bright spot in my life is the fact I am walking on that knee with no PAIN at all. And they had me crippled for the rest of my life. I am convinced it was the Fibro why else would it just of gone away almost over night.
