Fibro then food poisoning back to Fibro

Mar 13, 2016 8:38 AM

So this weekend has been fun. Thursday and Friday were a 20 on a scale of 1-10. However it's a great reminder that I am able to do this with holistic meds, holistic therapy, and EOs. Friday night had me begging for mercy. I got food poisoning and it lasted (the worst part) till Saturday morning. I almost passed out twice from the pain and vomitting.
Today is a bit better however I am still feeling soreness. My husband jokes I should have a six pack from the workout.
The migraine from dehydration and the fact I was unable to take my migraine meds is ridiculous.
However, fibro pain is back due to the weather. It's spring and the flare wasn't finished when I got food poisoning. It just altered course.
Hopefully this will run it's course soon and I will just go back to the normal 6-7 level and find new ways to manage that till summer!!! Summer always brings me back down to 2-3, unless I over do it or it rains.

Oh SaraB, That sounds horrible! I sure hope you are feeling more like yourself soon! My brother had the stomach flu the week before last, he had it so bad that he missed his granddaughter's first birthday party. He was so disappointed as she is his "Little Sunshine" I took LOTS of pictures for him (over 480 LOL).

Again, I hope you are feeling better soon!

Well I'm better. That was absolutely miserable. It ended up not being food poisoning after all. It did take me all this time just to recover and now end up with an upper respiratory infection . Lol. Immune systems are for the birds.
My hubbs did get sick within 5 hrs of me... Just not like I did. 2 days later he was throwing up. Gross. We had the actual influenza virus . We sanitized the whole house while sick. Mind you, no we do not get the shots due to other issues, however we haven't had any illnesses like this since 2008. Soooooo, we were very lucky that our son was on vacation with a friend while I had the worst of it. I actually had the worst case. It has started with someone at church possibly someone that one of those kids go to school with. I cannot wait for spring break because of this. Sanitized classrooms, homeschools, churches , everything . Kill that thing. Nowy body is building antibodies but still is was gross.
