Sports Bra

Jun 17, 2017 11:19 PM

Ladies do you find it difficult to wear a sports bra with fibromyalgia. I rented to someone at the nail salon who I knew from when we were younger and she was in such great pain with her sports bra on and it felt good to see that someone else other than I would feel the same pain and at the same time I felt sorry because I knew the pain she was feeling. I feel if were taking our medication regularly then why are we is still such a great deal of pain from something so small it's a sports bra. Men feel free to chime in ladies if you understand what I'm talking about please tell me were not the only two?

It really depends on the bra. My mother has fibromyalgia and she doesn't really have a problem wearing a sports bra with her Fibro. However, I have neck problems and migraines and sometimes wearing one makes my neck hurt like hell and gives me a headache. I find some sports bras that are shaped like regular bras to fee better than the big bulky sports bras.

I just recently started having problems wearing sports bra. I hurts after awhile. I can't wait to get home so I can take it off.

It's the taking on and off of a sports bra that hurts me.

As Frustrated mentioned above, it's the on and off process that is bad for me. The wearing is ok if it's not too tight and has to have thick straps.

Well you said chime in... Its not a sports bra but a foot wide stomach elastic band to help tuck the tummy in and displace things to other areas. (helps me stay in XXL shirts. Other wise the buldging tummy puts me into a XXXL shirt) durring flakes it hurts so bad. Like a corset from hell made of thumb tacks sticking into you in a billion places.

@frustrated yes! Me too! Almost like you are beeping off something tight from a very bruised body. Sorry only way I know how to explain it!

Wearing a sports bra is normally okay, but I am in extreme pain trying to take it off! It hurts my shoulders and muscles down into my stomach 👎
