7 Ways to Soothe a Fibromyalgia Rash


7 Ways to Soothe a Fibromyalgia Rash

I have terrible rashes and they are many different ones. All of them are very uncomfortable and some really painful. The bad thing for me is that I can’t use creams for relief. They freak me out. I hate the feel of them. So I put up with them.

What You Need to Know About Narcotics

I take Percocets. I still suffer pain, but without it, things are much worse. I do my best to keep my doses on time. I keep a list with the times I should take them and when I actually do so no taking too early.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS – When Things Around You Make You Sick


Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS

When Things Around You Make You Sick

I started having problems with strong scents back in the 90’s when a major plastic fire in my workplace gave off toxic fumes. If I want to wear a scent myself it must be mild. The people that bathe in it I cannot be around. Some candles are too strong and I cannot go into a candle or perfume store.

What Is Fibro Fog and ME/CFS Brain Fog?


What Is Fibro Fog and ME/CFS Brain Fog?

The brain fog is one of the hardest things to deal with. I can’t have conversations without forgetting words and I am always forgetting where I am going and how to get there. Very embarrassing. I have printed before some of the crazy things the fibro fog has caused me to do. It does explain a lot though. I never could figure out how I could get lost driving to work every day for years, but this explains it.

Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing


Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing

People find this hard to believe that clothing can cause a Fibromyalgia flare.

I wear loose bras and clothing. Preferably nothing tight. I don’t care what people think if it helps relieve my pain.

Is Fibromyalgia Hereditary?


Is Fibromyalgia Hereditary?

My daughter and I definitely have it and I worry about symptoms I often see in my son. Hopefully he is just having similar symptoms.

The daughter with Fibro also has all of my other awful disorders and lots of pain besides the new pain from the accident at work where the cabinet fell off the wall and injured quite severely her hand and arm. They still don’t know what the problem is and she is dealing with workman’s comp and a lawyer.

Problems Showering With Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Problems Showering With Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I am lucky that hot water does not cause me pain. I wish a hot bath was possible. Besides not having a tub, my pain will not allow me to get in and out of a tub. A shower is all I can manage. Not sure what this new apartment will have. It is a senior complex so who knows.
