bad weather bad pain

Mar 26, 2015 11:38 AM

I have fibro as well as arthritis and some other things thay cause me pain all the time I have noticed that true to old saying the weather makes it worse if it's bad. I've had a really tough time the last few days it makes it hard to work and do what needs to be done on top of the fatigue that goes with it. So today I find myself sitting on the couch hurting and my meds not really helping. I had to call in sick and that really bums me out I've always been a go getter hard worker reguardless of how I physically felt and over the last year and half I find myself suffering not wanting to even go to work no motivation

Hi Tiernanangel05 welcome to our group. It sounds like you may have depression, going through what we all have to live with. It's something we all fight to a certain degree. Have you talked to your Dr about how you are doing not only physically but mentally also. You may need to have your medications changed around. I wish you the best and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you Wheezie12 I have not talked to my doctor about that. I do take anxiety meds but never thought about depression being part of this that's something more for me to look into to. I wonder if that explains my not want to do anything spells I have

I am having the exact same day! I called in and am just stuck on te couch. Didn't even have the energy to shower. I'm about I do that now and see if that helps. I hope you feel better and the bad weather passes there and here

Tiernanangel05, don't feel bad or lazy that you need a day to rest. We all do from time to time.

I'm 53 and stopped working in 2010 because of a benign mass. It snowballed and I have more medical conditions than I can count on my fingers & toes. But my osteoarthritis, chronic back & pelvic pain, fibromyalgia & recently diagnosed Sjogrens all contribute to fatigue. I can get up feeling fairly well but by noon I'm tired and ready to nap. If I have to leave home for appts or errands I get exhausted. But I refuse to take naps willingly because it messes up my night sleeping which has problems enough. But my husband said in the last 2-3 weeks he's come in (or been sitting with me) and I just konk out for 1-3 hours.

And this crazy weather... No one in the US has escaped, except Hawaii. Its going to be warm & rainy and possible storms here tonight, then our high tomorrow drops back to about 58. I hate rain & I hate cold, because they both make me ache. I hope you get a good rest today & tonight, and if you need off tomorrow don't feel bad. Take care of you because no one else really will or can. You're in my prayers! 🙏🌼
