Fibromyalgia and type1 diabetes

Jul 20, 2015 2:24 PM

Anybody else have fibromyalgia and type1 diabetes? This is the longest flare I've ever had. Aside from work I'm pretty inactive right now. I'm up at night and I'm exhausted. Feeling sorry for myself and (you guessed it) eating too many carbs. I haven't gained weight but I'm feeling bloated and depressed. My blood sugar is usually well controlled and today I had boils, chills and fever with high blood sugar. Ugh! I want my body back! Diabetes is way easier to control than chronic pain. Now I have to have antibiotics. There is no way I can call in sick to work. Just feeling....ugh.

Sweetiepie, I'm sorry your day is doubly bad. I don't have diabetes so I can't help you there. I hope and pray tomorrow will be a better day, and that this flare up will soon pass. 🙏🌼

Sweetie, I have type 1 diabetes as well. I'm sorry you're not feeling well. It's hard trying to control your blood sugar with a fever. Sending good vibes your way!
