You prepared meals for three days to feed 175 people and you are wondering why your hands and arms hurt, you are dead tired, and have muscle spasms in your back?  Just look it this!  shocked    I'm sure you don't cook like that on a daily basis.  You were demanding a lot out of your arms, hands, back, your whole body!  When you do things like this, you do pay a price with fibro.  But, I'm sure this was for a good cause so relax, take a hot shower, and give yourself a gentle pat on the back!  It was a job well done and you will start feeling better soon.

I agree with Sherrine. You have good reason to feel the way that you do. And it doesn't always happen automatically. Especially with fibro. I also agree that it was a job well done and you should be proud of yourself.

Keep on moving. That is the best advice that I can give you other than a bed buddy.

I'll vote for Sherrines' idea too. I've been packing around an 8 month old for 3 days and I've been in tears from the throbbing pain. I'm hoping it will subside to the normal 'miserable ache' that I live with. If I sit at the computer for about 20 minutes my neck, shoulder and head are all in awful pain that can last til morning.

You have every reason to be in pain...welcome to fibromyalgia my friend. I agree that you need to keep moving but very gently!!! And keep the muscles warm. Doing dishes is too much, eating dinner would be about Seriously, some days loading the dishwasher put me in tears of pain.

I do hope things improve. Until then go very easy on yourself...OK?
