Depressed. Right hip replacement plus fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

May 27, 2019 2:50 PM

Feeling very depressed as I haven't left the house since my hip replacement on 26 April. Fibromyalgia likes to keep me down and out as well. Can't drive, and fibromyalgia pain has spread to my arms and chest today. Could it be the weather? Also had pins and needles in both hands ALL day. Driving me nuts! πŸ™„ I pray for strength and I know the Lord hears. Strength and patience please Lord ✝️

You use it in a sentence in your reply. I will pray for you also, I know the Lord hears and I know the awful experiences we are going through right now, will be put to good use further down the road to help other people, our suffering will not go to waste. ✝️

Hi fibrogen. I'm sorry you're having so much pain. I have fibro too. Weather most certainly affects fibro. I hurt worse when biometric pressure changes. Hope you feel better soon.

Hi wedding. I don't want to steal the topic. I'm fine. I would say try putting heat on it. Get a towel wet. Put it in microwave for a couple minutes. Be careful it will be hot. Put on back. Moist heat really helps.

Fibropen, I am sorry to hear what you've been going through! I do understand the frustration and depression, as I had hoped surgery 5/14/19, for a torn labrum & 2 ligament/tendon tears. I was thrown for a loop when I saw my doc last week and he informed me I'm to remain "no weight bearing for at least 6 more weeks; I suffered depression for days because I'm not use to being so I'm mobile for so long, and totally dependent on my hubby.
As for my fibromyalgia pain increase and weather, yes when it's got, yes when it's cold, yes when it's humid, yes when it's rainy; also affects my Sjogrens joints, OA& DDD. My sister has fibro too but only got humid weather affects her's. Sending you hugs love & prayers your pain decreases and you will be back in your feet soon! πŸ™‚β€πŸ™πŸŒΌ

Thank you all so much for your kindness and wise advice. Sending hugs and prayers ✝️

I’m so sorry you are in pain and unable to leave your house. Prior to my accident, I would not have realized the significance of that but now understand how awful it is to feel like a prisoner in your own home. Praying you find a relief in your pain. I have CRPS and I would say the weather could be wrecking havoc with your fibromyalgia and recovery.
I am really working on mindfulness. It sounded like crap when my therapist mentioned it to me. It does not help with the pain per se but it does help to redirect my mind from the horrible place of pain to being more aware or focused on the present and what is around me instead of what is going on with me.
Continued prayers for healing, relief, and comfort πŸ™πŸ™πŸ™
