Bad flare

Oct 15, 2015 4:22 PM

Woke up at 2am with horrible pain and sweating. Finally fell back asleep at 4am woke up at 7:30 and was in so much pain. Then Boom! Here comes the nausea and dizziness. Been on the couch all day unable to eat or move.

I'm hearing you. I had an awful night, tossing and turning. Can't sleep on either side because both hips hurt can't sleep on my back because lower back hurts. Sleeping on tummy, forget it!!
I walk like a granny for at least two hrs when I finally roll out of bed. Pop the painkillers and just wait.
I can't say I've been nauseous but dizzy yep most days.
Melram1981 I do hope you have an alright day. In saying that I'm not sure where you are in the world so you may be trying to sleep again.
If you need a vent or just a chat theres always more than one of us broken people on here😊

Thank you ouchithurts. Im actually in Oregon. Thankfully my kids,are in school all day. My husband is getting off work to pick them up for me.

You're very welcome Melram1981. My kids are also in school all day, most days. I have a 13 nearly 14yr old daughter who insists constantly that her period pain is the worst in the world. Makes me laugh, like no other woman before her had been through it!

One of the lovely ladies on here suggested that I should write a book to my kids in their lingo so they can better understand all the symptoms of fibromyalgia and how much it affects my daily life. I've gone from being a fit active Mum to one who can hardly walk most days. That being said I still have to get up to get the household ready for the day.

Rest up lovely, take it easy 😊

Melram1981, I'm sorry you got hit with this. My sister was headed to work and suddenly got nauseated and dizzy, then started throwing up. By the time she got in bed she'd spiked a fever. Somethings going around here (GA) a virus.

I hope you can relax and get over this sooner than later. πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Mel, I hear you. In a very bad endo flare(possibly) at this point in time and the only thing that helps is just laying absolutely still on my tummy. PCP or gyn will not prescribe pain meds until after surgery is done so for now, ES Tylenol it is(laughable most days).

Melram i am so sorry to hear you had a bad night. 😒 it sets the tone for the whole day so i hope you find the smallest amount of happy in your day and remember always you have all of us. And ouchithurts you sound so much like me it is scary sometimes. Lol i can imagine if we were all in a bed together there would be a choir of painful growns as we rolled over. Lol

Bahahaha fallen! Thankyou I got the laugh I was in need of today. What a hilarious groaning choir we would makeπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

I get so tired of the sweats, pain and nausea. Being bed ridden depession sets in. I keep holding onto the thought that one day maybe a good one.

Hi mel, my morning routeen. I have all my meds right by the bed and a portable potty. I wake, pee, take meds and pray and meditate until they kick in. Then I assess if I can shower, eat or lay back down. The end
