Fibro and the Flu

It's like normal pain X3. Ugh.

I have fibro plus a cold now. What caused my bf 3 days of sickness has made over a week of misery for me. I have pain so bad in my back and legs I can't even rest. I totally understand your pain. 😷

Praying for you both! Really healthy people shake stuff off and don't give a second thought to how it affects all of us, with immunity issues. I always take much longer to get better, so I tell my family & friends "love ya but don't come over unless you're well."

I'm the last one to get sick. I think I know why. Been taking my vitamins and supplements all winter. But the neurologist last week advised me to stop until I got blood work done so they wouldn't give artificial values. Sure enough once I was not taking vit d, magnesium, b6 and b12 I got sick.

Well hopefully it won't last much longer. Up your vitamin C.

I feel so much better today! Definitely not going to try taking less Tylenol and Ibuprofen yet though. Thanks for your prayer flappy.

Your welcome Aliya, and I'm glad you're doing better. PTL!
