  • I feel the same way. I am just so sick of being in pain and when I get comfy, I want to stay that way. I get depressed from all the pain. Sometimes I have to take max of pain meds and I am dopey to say the least and I would prefer to stay in bed and sleep away my life and then wake up when I start feeling better which won't happen if I stay in bed forever. The chronic pain is tiring. It's going on 11:30pm and I'm still not tired even after I took my ambien a couple of hours ago so I will go take a shower, toss and turn all night in bed till hubby gets up in am and goes in living room and then I just want to stay in my bed all alone. His back is bothering him for about 2 days so I am trying to be sympathetic but I should just treat him the same way he does me. Ok, I am going off on a different subject, please forgive me lol. Must be the ambien and pain med mix. I better go now

    I do agree that you should talk to doc about it. Do you take vitamins? Maybe you should try taking extra vitamin C. It could be so many things but most likely it tends to be depression from coping with chronic pain.

    I hope you feel better soon.
  • I'm pretty sure that the "all over ache" that those of us with fibro has, is a very common feeling for us. My limbs feel like they weigh a hundred pounds each, at times, meaning it sometimes is hard to even lift my legs high enough to take a step. Also, the lack of energy we feel, makes it feel even harder to lift our limbs. Knowing that we should be able to do more but absolutely don't feel like it, makes us feel depressed. We want to do it, but it is just so hard to. The most comfortable and safe feeling place for us? Buried beneath the covers in the most comfortable position we can find... and PLEASE understand that we don't want to feel this way AND most importantly, there is nothing we can do to make it better. Just because we may look fine from the outside doesn't mean we feel fine on the inside. I personally feel like I could sleep for 20 out of 24 hrs out of the day, but when I try to close my eyes and sleep, my brain starts running a marathon and I have the hardest time falling asleep. Finally, my brain takes a quick breather and I fall asleep, but my back starts to hurt and it wakes me up because I have to reposition and the marathon begins again!
    My friends, this is us! We have to stick together! Keep in touch and let's vent to each other. I think it will be better to talk about it with someone who can really understand what you're going thru rather than hold it in until you explode!! So here is an open invitation to you all, to PM me anytime you need to, I'll even trade e-mail addresses with you if you want or maybe even just post on here so that someone else may see what we go thru and see that they are not alone.
    OK... I'll finish up here. This whole post took it all out of me! Whew! Have a good day! Hang in there~
