  • I am so sorry you are having such a difficult week! Hang in there! We are all here for you, as a shoulder to lean on, an ear to vent to, and to offer a gentle cyper hug!

    Hopefully someone with fibro will stop by and offer their experiences.

    Maybe if you don't feel better by tomorrow you should call your doc. I know the thought of being in the hopsital is not pleasent, but it might really be what you need.....the drowsiness from the meds will get better with time!

    I just wanted to let you know I'm thinkning of you! Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers! Hang in there Mary!

    I don't have Fibro, but can fully understand the flare ups and depression. Depression can add to the pain as well. I am always here if you need to vent, chat. I wish I could do more, and wish you weren't in so much pain. Hospitals bite, but if you continue to have this pain, call your doctor and go with his instructions. Big cyber HUGZ your way woman!!!

  • Well Mary, I find that when we chat, or talk in the forums, it helps my crap settle down a bit. So, I guess this is a great example of a 2-way street? :)

    Luv ya woman!! Feel better soon! *HUGZ*

  • I'm sending extremely gentle cyber hug your way >:D<

    I'm sorry you've been feeling so bad. I've also had a couple of fibro flares that hurt so bad it felt like I've blown several discs. I get low grade fevers, stiffness, muscle spasms..the works. What helped to break the pain cycle was increasing my Lyrica dose; I'm at 375mg now. I also started on Elavil.

    I hope you get over this flare soon. Please call your doctor for help- you shouldn't suffer this way. Take care
