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


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.

Tears – a poem


Tears by Teresa Smeigh October 2017

The tears are coursing down my cheek,

The pain is bad, I am not weak.

My foot is numb, my hands are too.

The pain is like the turn of the screw.

 

I cannot stand nor walk you see.

Somewhere else I’d rather be.

I can’t lie down, or sit upright,

What can I do, this isn’t right!

 

To my Lord I do pray

Give me strength that I may stay.

I shouldn’t have to live like this

No one should I loudly hiss.

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.

Exercise for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – Feeling Better vs. Feeling Worse


Exercise for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Feeling Better vs. Feeling Worse

*****************************************

I think this is what started this severe case of pain a year and a half ago. I joined the gym for Silver Sneakers which was free with my Aetna Medicare (other medicare advantage plans carry it too, check yours). It was supposed to be for seniors so I figured it would be really easy. It wasn’t and all they did was make sure everyone had a chair just in case they needed it.

By the 6th week, I was in intense pain. I hadn’t gotten used to exercising at all. That worried me a bit and then I lost feeling on the whole left side of my body and ended up in the hospital with pinched nerves in my neck and back. It aggravated my degenerative disc disease and arthritis as well. It had been about 7 years since I had gone through the whole thing before only now things have degenerated more,

It has been a year and a half and I am just getting worse rather than better. I am now taking the only Fibromyalgia medication I never tried before, Lyrica. I am in major Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome flares. Life sucks and I have to pretend that all is well. the Chronic Fatigue has me in bed almost 24 hours now. I get up shortly and right back to bed and I am out like a light. I can’t do anything.

Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing


Fibromyalgia Pain From Clothing

This is the current problem I am having. Not only clothes are painful, but coving up my legs with a cover at bedtime is painful.
