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


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

ME/CFS

This particular sympton of Fibromyaliga and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is really painful. Imagine pain just from a light touch, whether a finger lightly drawn across the skin to the touch of a shirt or other clothing on your body. You find you can’t tolerate hugs from people. The blankets or sheets on your bed may be too much and just a simple breeze of a fan blowing over you could bring on this pain.

5 Don’ts for a Better Relationship With a Fibromyalgia or CFS Doctor


5 Don’ts for a Better Relationship With a Fibromyalgia or CFS Doctor

My family doctor who Is about to become my main doctor, since I finally qualified for Medicaid, doesn’t believe in Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. He tolerates my complaints but doesn’t do anything about them. I have stopped talking to him about it.  I was talking about my condition with my rheumatologist, but all of my doctors are about to change since I am going to have to find Medicaid doctors instead. It won’t be easy starting over with all new doctors, but I will be saving money and that is the important thing right now. I have to survive on a small Social Security Disability Check.

I hate when this happens as it is so embarrassing. My last job before I went on disability was in a call center. I would suddenly stop while talking to the customer and stumble over words trying to tell them what I meant.

5 Don’ts for a Better Relationship With a Fibromyalgia or CFS Doctor

These can be hard to follow when you are in a lot of pain. And some doctors are truly unsympathetic and don’t believe it exists.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS


Multiple Chemical Sensitivity in Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS

I am very sensitive to different chemicals up to and including candles and perfumes. You know how some people douse themselves in perfume. It just about kills me trying to breathe through that. I have to avoid the candle stores and perfume sections of stores. I can’t tolerate the scents.

Post-Exertional Malaise Overview


Post-Exertional Malaise Overview

This is so very real and right now worse than ever. Change my bed and it will take a few days to get over it. Go for groceries and between the worsened pain and the malaise I am out again for days. I can’t clean my apartment. It just sucks the life out of you.
