Why Fibromyalgia or ME/CFS May Worsen Period Pain


Why Fibromyalgia or ME/CFS May Worsen Period Pain

It has been many, many years since I had to deal with period pain so I can’t tell you if I feel it adds to my Fibromyalgia pain.

Sex With Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Sex With Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

There would be times that I would find sex with Fibromyalgia to be painful. It would depend on just what I was feeling at the time. Pain comes and goes and so do the other symptoms. You would and should talk with your partner about what you are feeling emotionally and physically as well. In some cases it may not be possible depending on how bad your Fibromyalgia is and some people are certainly worse and in more pain than others. The rougher the sex the more exhausted you might end up being. Just take it slow and easy and talk your partner through it. If they’re understanding they will work with you to make the experience a good one.

SSRI/SNRI Antidepressants for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


SSRI/SNRI Antidepressants for Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Now they are starting to name quite a few more anti-depressants can help with Fibromyalgia than when I was first diagnosed 8 years ago.

I tried 2 of the 3 drugs that were originally considered to help cure Fibromyalgia. Savella I was violently allergic to and my arms had turned bright red and had huge red, swollen, areas all over them that were starting to blister. Very painful on its own. I gather they would have continued swelling all over my body if I had not stopped.

The Cymbalta helped my Bipolar depression for over a year. I was pretty stable on it, but it did nothing for the Fibromyalgia.

Absolutely none of these suggestions I post that I find on the web have helped me. That DOESN’T mean it won’t help you though. Never pass up a promising chance to help your Fibromyalgia because we are all different.

Fibromyalgia, Pain and Dementia


I am set to have my hip injected on Tuesday which means no NSAIDS for 5 days before. So since arthritis is pretty much throughout my body it is throbbing from that.

The stress of having that injection (no sedation but a local) has my Fibromyalgia also throbbing. All the pain points hurt and heaven forbid I want to scream each time they touch each other or some other object.

Then to add to that is my dad and his condition especially his dementia. My sister called me yesterday morning to warn me not to visit. She walked in there and he screamed at her to get out and go home. The place is dangerous and he didn’t want her there and a lot more. If he had done that to me I would have burst into tears and been frozen in my spot. My sister said she tried to talk him out of it, but he was simply lost in his dementia and like my mom was full of conspiracy theories. My mom thought my dad was trying to kill her and I was the only one she trusted and I would sit with her during these episodes so she felt safe, but my dad is sure the aliens he was studying about prior to his dementia are out for him and that my sister and I are not safe visiting him. She said that was the worst episode she has witnessed so far. I don’t go that often anyhow due to the long walk from the parking lot to the door, down a long hallway and then down another very long hallway. I can’t walk that far without numerous breaks. He doesn’t like visitors anyway and has no sense of time so he doesn’t protest and in fact he is happier we don’t come because he is so sure that we are being brought in for the kill. It upsets him more than makes him feel better.

Pain doctor can be problematic with narcotics.


I was there on Wednesday and she told me that she had electronically sent it through and I could pick it up on the way home. (They now send them electronically just like regular scripts).

I didn’t go as the weather was just so bad I wanted to just get home. So the next day after a doctor appointment I stopped at the pharmacy. No prescription so I called from there. I was told by the office that the prescription hadn’t gone through and the doctor would send it later. I asked them to do it now since I was already in the pharmacy. NO! Okay so as life would have it on Friday I forgot. By the time I remembered it was past closing time. So this morning, Saturday, I called the pharmacy before leaving, still no narcotics prescription. So I called the doctor’s office to leave a message with the answering company.

Now I just remembered that last month I had taken Morphine for a week and then switched back to percocets because it didn’t work. So when I looked at the prescription bottle it was dated 2/8/19. So they wouldn’t have filled it back then anyhow. I wondered why I had so many left that I wasn’t close to running out. So the prescription still should have gone through and they would have held it to the 8th and filled it then.

BUT they still screwed up so another call to the doctor on Monday. I go through some kind of problem every month with them although this one was partly my though since I didn’t realize I had the wrong date. I was used to every 30 days and that week of Morphine messed me up.
