I've been fighting a fibro flare with tight sore muscles, achy osteoarthritis, and extreme fatigue for 3-4 days. It started mildly and has built up to sheer exhaustion tonight. Only I'm hurting so bad I can't relax to sleep. I've taken the gabapentin & tramadolin the last 3 hours and it's amounted to zilch. Guess I'll try a muscle relaxer. Can't help but wonder if the funky & false spring we're having is to blame. Its been beautiful weather for 2 days and the next 2-3 will be near 80. I know the hot summer & cold winter is always my worst two seasons. I feel like I've been hit by a mack truck, and it keeps backing over me! 😖 Its my worst flare Ina long time, severity wise.

FlappsyLady, I've been sitting here for the majority of the day wondering why I'm in such aggregious pain and why in more tired than normal (to the point of exhaustion). I know that I am in the middle iof a flare-up and its more than I can bare. I am totally shot to shit.. I feel like I've been hit by a fleet of busses and they keep cominG, lll l

Flappys, I was up most of the.night achy and miserable wondering if our weather had something to do with it too. I have to find out if our hot muggy summers bother me. I have been most miserable all winter and body freezing all the time, so I welcome spring and warmth...or at least I use to! My fibro just came on strong recently...
I am so sorry you are having much pain. I will be praying for a better day for you, and alwayzinpain too...hang in there guys, better days ahead!!!

Ok so this is strange I have been going through a bad time the last few days too. For some reason when I get real bad my joints and spine pop and burn. I have knotted muscles, my jaw and face are killing me and I feel so whiney because of the pain I am starting to piss myself off. Anyway the last few days have been hell. The time change didn't help either. I am pretty sure we all don't live in the same state I am in washington. The weather here has been nice for pacific nw standards a while now.

AlwayZ, Blessed, & Shammagren I'm sorry y'all are suffering too, but I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who thinks the weather is contributing. And no Shammagren, we don't live in the same areas i'm in GA. I've noticed the past 2 summers the heat aggravated my arthritis, and the winter cold flares up the muscle pain. I'm guessing it is the fibromyalgia, unless I do have MS or something else. Our weather will be 70s today, 80's Tues-Wed, then 50's the rest of the week. I really wish someone would find the true cause & cure for fibromyalgia because it aggravates & elevates everything else!

Omg...now I've got a headache on top of it all! Migraine, cervicogenic, or something else I don't know but this is cruel!!!

Thankfully I took meds at beginning of headache and stopped working on paperwork. Headache is much improved but not gone. PTL!

Flappsy, Always, Shammagrin, and Blessed I truly belive the weather has a lot to do with us and our pain. I have been dealing with pain out breaks on different places on my body. For the last two weeks I live in E TX and this has been the coldest winter we have had in over 20 yrs. My joints and muscles hurt my skin hurts to touch it. I have been so cold and aching all the time. It's been raining for over 2 weeks non stop, I also have osteoarthritis, fibro,Syringomyelia and after radio that article I think I may have CIS. I have been reading a lot of material from National MSS and I have a lot of the symptoms of ms. I digress I think that the barometric pressure has a lot to do with our pain problems that we have .I could be wrong but that's how I feel about it.I know when it's gearing up to the weather changing is when mine starts getting out of control.

I am right there with all of you, and I'm in Kansas! I have come to believe it is the barometric changes. It doesn't matter if it's going up or down... If it's changing, I'm hurting! The more it changes the worse I hurt!

Hey everyone, I'm sorry I've been MIA for a couple of days but so much pain an so weak, I couldn't even pick up the iPad to bother trying to get some help talking to you all. It's going to rain here this afternoon and tonight and then tomorrow is going to be 60 degrees and then drop back to 40. The radical changes definitely effect our pain. I'm so tired of feeling like someone beat the shit out of me, my mind gets clouded and can't carry on a normal conversation sometimes and the overall exhaustion. Even if I'm not on, you are all always in my thoughts and prayers. I hope you are having a more peaceful day.

I agree with the changing barometric pressure theory. I can tell weather changes better than the weather man. Lol ;)
