So I have fibro and I was wondering if anyone experiences mood changes from stimuli? For example repetitious phrases makes me angry and smells (whether on food or perfume or deodorant) make me sick and Bright lights and excessive noise make me confused. I know sensory overload is a symptom of fibro but this seems different. Just wanted to know if anyone else feels similarly!
Oh my gosh I accidentally think I press the report but I didn't mean to I tried to on do it if anything happens tell them that it was an accident so that neither of us gets in trouble I didn't realise that that would with the button was for
Yes! I know that feeling if wanting to choke someone for continually saying the same thing. Lol last week we had a guest speaker at church who was trying out for the Youth Minister job. Every sentence either began or ended (or both) with the "word" uhh or ummm" I love reading but some authors repeat phrases over and over. I can't finish those books.
The fluorescent lights in most stores now Not only can trigger migraines but I get nauseated. Thank goodness for Amazon. (smile)
There is so much still not known about Fibro and related illnesses. :(
Yes, fibromyalgia has made me smell sensitive, noise and unfortunately I'm unsure if that annoying repetitive phrases is because my son loves them and stims off. My son has multiple sensory issues as well. I was relieved to discover about fibromyalgia causing the smell sensitivity ... It's a hard one for me. I don't like crowded noise venues now as well.
Sounds, lights, smells... crowds all make me hyper-sensitive even light touching such as a stroke of the arm can feel like ive just been punched... 😣 none of this is understood by my spouse so i am constantly jumping out my skin when hes near me... it drives me doolally. 🤗
Smells, lights and repetitive sound can trigger a migraine and large crowds cause me issues as well.. Touch is another thing altogether. People hug me and for whatever reason pat my back and it almost brings me to my knees... sometimes light touch on my skin can feel like I'm being burned by a cattle prod. I am a very physical person and love and live for cuddles but people have to be more careful.
Clapping on TV. Ask a question and reply is question back or repeat me. Makes me angry. Problay losing job because I can't physically do it anymore. Very angry and depressed feel like I'm letting my children down. I hate Fibromyalgia! And all the other things going on. Just about no hair on my body anywhere, yep Alopecia on the long list to.
Hey I relate to the hair loss. I get handfuls when I brush. I am taking that Swedish supplement for hair skin nails. Only been on it a month. I have hope. I have thyroid issues & high testosterone Dr thinks. But at 60 I've had my first period in five years. So off TO OBGYN this week. I had most of my stomach removed leaving a sleeve for stomach in an effort to loss weight. Mild bariactric surgery. My hair started falling out then. Lost eyebrow leg & arm hair.
I have fibro .. and smells give me a head ache too ... garlic is the worst , and when people over do it with the purfume , oh my ... bright lights give me headache too ... can't sit In the room and watch tv with the light on . Or I end up with a headache ... apart from these things giving me a headache I don't get them yet a neurologist told me I suffer with migraines ! Cop out ! I can't multi task anymore , I used to be good at it ... but now I can only deal with one thing at once ... so I only do one thing at once ... I avoid smells and bright lights ... as for stress , well ,! That just makes me feel ill , sick , short of breath .. etc ... so I avoid stress, don't worry about things I can't change .... it's all about adjusting to it .. once you do fibro is so much easier to cope With .... rather than stress and get frustrated when I can't sleep .. I'll get up and stick a movie on .. when my shoulder , neck back plays up I rest it in between doing things . And use heat to help ease the pain .. have a really hot bath every evening as well .. that helps too .. I know fibro sucks .. but the sooner you except things and adjust to them .. the more bearable they become ... I wish you all a peaceful night x
I can relate to excessive stimuli. My sense of smell at times is like a superpower it seems to seek out BO in particular. Also find crowded places difficult but cant describe exactly what I'm feeling, not quite anxious but hyper alert and feeling ill. Recently delayed in an airport and would have done almost anything to get a quiet space.
Hearing pots washed up in the sink also. Bright outdoor lights. Driving in a car a where there is rapid change of light & shadow due to houses & trees-- set me off with a migraine. Always have been extremely sense e to everything. Anyone remove labels from back of shirts & dresses.?
I have lupus and I struggle with noise barking dogs or licking dogs being a real struggle for me. Certain lighting and crowds are hard. On a sort of funny note I have a dog who licks obsessively and has a loud bark.
Lights, sounds, and smells bother me really bad. I have also started getting sick ( nauseous, lightheaded, sweating profusely) when I am at a store like Walmart or Kroger. I don't know if it's the lighting or just sensory overload from trying to look at and focus on so much. I have to take my mother in law grocery shopping from time to time and the last few times I took her I got so sick I almost couldn't get the groceries into the car. I had to take a break in the middle of loading them and sit down because I was afraid I was going to fall down or pass out.
