Zaeleth, I have pain everyday and I guess I'm used to it...when you live with pain
for a long time you do learn to live with it...it just becomes part of you.
Most of us have fatigue and pain...they are the two major symptoms of fibro.
There is a big differance between everyday pain and flare pain...when you are
in a bad flare, pain can be overwhelming. After time you more less learn what
helps alleviate it. Heat, exercise, relaxation, prescription meds and supplements
work for me along with a positive attitude. I consider myself to be an active
woman who trys to pace herself :) Daily exercise is a must for me.
A rheumatologist diagnosed me. Fibro is not always easy to diagnose.
Good luck to you and keep us posted!
