Achy, weak and slight nausea

Jan 13, 2015 6:29 PM

Hey guys! Question:
I had a stressful busy week last week. By Sunday, it was over- but I was exhausted! And achy, soooo tired I could not stand up for long- just wanted to lay down all the time...., and I kept getting waves of nausea all day. Here is my question- is this a fibromyalgia thing???? Sunday night I slept for a good 8 hours (waking a few times in there), but by Monday- felt much better- not perfect- but better.
Is what I described a norm in anyone else's life?

I have often felt like that. I was diagnosed with fibro 2-3 yrs ago but have had it probably way longer. When I have busy and/or stressful days, there always comes a point where my body practically collapses and waves the white flag. I am trying to learn to pace myself but it's not always possible for me. I am currently going thru a time (last 2 days) where I've had to cancel appointments and commitment because I just have to stay home and rest and not do anything.

And yes, achy, weak is normal for me. I usually don't get nauseated but have heard others do. I get and increase in pain and a feeling like I'm coming down with a flu and lots and lots of fatigue.

Thanks! - I appreciate your input. I was told I had fibromyalgia years ago from a PT- but wasn't sure I guess. But often - especially in times of high stress and activity- I will bottom out and hurt so bad - feel exhausted- weak.....like I was coming down with the flu! Then after resting a couple days feel much better. I was pretty sure it was a fibromyalgia Incident but was never certain.

I have been achy and nauseated for two days now. I am on gabapentin and tramadol and tylenol 3 when I need it. No relief at all. This is not a good time to be sick with thanksgiving this week and I have to con with no help. I hope I don't collapse after. I can't sleep because I am so achy all over.
