Getting a Sleep Study with Fibromyalgia or CFS


Getting a Sleep Study with Fibromyalgia or CFS

I have had about 3 of these. Take something unrevealing to sleep in such as shorts and a t-shirt. In my case there wasn’t time to shower and you did not see a doctor after it. All places are different and the bathrooms were public, not private. I ended up leaving with that goop still in my hair. Even the one that I had a chance to shower it all didn’t come out. I had to go to work after one of them and I had yucky hair for the day. Maybe your lab will have weekend appointments, but wouldn’t count on it.

Fibromyalgia Diet: Good & Bad Foods

This is all subjective and applies differently to each person. What I can eat someone else may not. Try to eliminate the foods that bother you.

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.
