Problems Showering With Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS

Problems Showering With Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS

I can’t shower by myself due to the chance of falling. I am applying for Medicaid which would provide a home health aide to help me shower and dress among other things. My pain makes it hard to clean the back side of my body as well.

My pain doctor is not seeing patients due to the coronavirus. The most I can do is get a refill as long as I am not sick and they are putting off as many people as possible. I don’t know if I would run out so I have to go tomorrow and I am not sick. The problem is I wanted to talk to the doctor about a different pain medicine, but all I can do is get a refill of what I am taking. Which is better than nothing.

    I hope you get the help you need. I’m only 47 with a bad knee but we only the bathtub and sometimes if that knee gives, I fall so I understand why you would be so scared in your position. ❤

      This is senior housing and people with disabilities. There should be walk in showers and no bathtubs. Sorry to hear you have no shower at all. I can’t get in or out or down into a bathtub.
