OK, it isn't SO!
I do understand what you are talking about
. It seems to take forever for one of my famous 'missteps' to heal up. But I've been getting good at them so I'm not sure what "healed up" means.
Seriously, in my opinion and it's only that, it does seem that I take longer to 'heal' from injuries. Why? Good question. I know we're all getting older but I'm guessing you're younger than 1/2 my age so that doesn't carry much weight. Since fibro is referred and amplified muscle pain then maybe it makes sense for the pain to last longer. As long as we have a small amount of pain then wouldn't we feel it as a 'LARGE' pain? So when the dog dropped her 2' long chew bone on the top of my foot last week I didn't think it would ever stop hurting and when it happened I was sure it had cut my foot of from how bad the pain was. (But you have to understand that this is a large dog, Golden Retriever, and she has Large toys/bones. Hubby brought her home a pig femur from the butcher shop and she's been in heaven ever since. Packs it around but when something else looks interesting like one of the cats darts by she drops whatever she has and Heaven help you if your foot is in the way.
OK, I'm lost on my own trail again..lol From my point of view I do think we feel the pain longer. As far as 'healing', now that's another story. To me healing is like having a cut and the time it takes to completely heal and go away. Pain is just a side dish to the cut. ;-P Oh, and what is moving too fast? Anything more than slow breathing is moving too fast. Doesn't even include a crawl or slow saunter. Seriously, if you are unlucky and in just the wrong position just taking a deep breath can make something 'snap' and I'm in pain for hours.
Take each day, or hour, as it comes. Deal with one episode at a time. But always remember to appreciate and notice the good times. Those times when you all of a sudden realize....oh, the pain isn't miserable and stabbing right now. Maybe write it down or journal your pain and see if you can repeat it again.
It's well past my bedtime and it shows...my writing is getting way too silly. I hope you begin to feel better and good luck with trying to figure out what I wrote..I can't.
