Causes of Primary and Secondary Fibromyalgia


Causes of Primary and Secondary Fibromyalgia

While I don’t know particularly what the main cause of my Fibromyalgia is there are so many things that could have caused it and perhaps it is a combination of many. Stress is one of the many causes. And when stressed it causes major flare-ups.

Pain, Knee Injection, Psycho-Analysis


Due to my upcoming steroid injection in my knee on Tuesday I had to cut out any pain killer that is an NSAID. If used it could cause dangerous bleeding. So by cutting out my Meloxicam, the pain became worse.

I have spent most of the last few days in bed. Laying down is less painful than sitting. If I had a couch I could sit with my legs straight, but since I don’t have one, sitting in a 4 legged chair or my computer chair is quite painful.

My knee is not the only painful area. My back is still a problem. I still feel my spine moving and popping. My whole body is an issue.

I mentioned that I was losing my therapist and then the whole office was closing down. My last appointment was last Tuesday, well I slept right through it. In a way, I am glad, since that eliminated the emotional part. I figure since I am not in a panic, that things are good and maybe it is time to let it go for good.

I still have my psychiatric nurse who prescribes my medications for my mental issues and is willing to talk if I need it. She does therapy too, but way out of my budget.

I can’t take much more of this pain and need to lie down again. The longer I am without my NSAID the worse my arthritis pain gets. Getting there on Tuesday and then having only a local anesthetic I am going to really be in pain. I can’t be knocked out unless I go to a surgical center or the hospital due to my BMI since I am obese. I have been knocked out with no problems, but new laws won’t allow it done in a procedure center at the pain management office. If what they give me is an anesthetic I would hate to have it without. The pain is tremendous. They tell me it will just feel like a bee sting. I would like that bee to sting them. That is the worse bee sting I have ever had.

My neighbor is driving me home. I drove myself last time. It was possible, but having someone drive you is much more comfortable. My dad used to drive me before he had a stroke.

Can’t wait until it is over.

Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing


Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing

There are times when just clothing brushing my skin or my bedding as I try to sleep hurt a lot. Even a hug can hurt.

Allodynia: A Rare, Distinct Type of Pain in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS

This pain can be so horrible. No hugging, pressure of clothing and bedcovers and even the weight of air blowing over you. I know it sounds weird, but sometimes all my Fibromyalgia trigger points will hurt at once spreading the pain around ALL the areas.

Language Impairment in Fibromyalgia and CFS


Language Impairment in Fibromyalgia and CFS

This is very problematic for those of us who are writers. Sometimes I sit and just struggle to find the word I am looking for. The sentence I created is just way off and I know I have to find the word I am missing. Very frustrating.
