Fibro Update

So, been having on of my more spectacular fibro flares over the past six weeks or so, new record, woo, go me, etc. I tried resetting my sleep schedule, up all night and sleep all day is fine if you're an undead prince of Wallachia, fine and dandy, but it sucks if you like human interaction, even if its the quarantined internet variety. So, took some sleepytime meds at 10, was out hard by 11 and...

Fibrofog?

How to describe fibrofog...? Hmmm... It's a bit like forgetting where you set down your keys, then while you're wandering around looking for your keys you stop and wonder why you needed your keys in the first place, and while you're standing there wondering you realize that your legs are cold and it dawns on you that you forgot to put on your pants.

First off, the cane comes from a variety of problems: my right ankle has a great big knot on the outside because I've blown it out a few times, the first and worst time was running over uneven ground in combat books doing something or another...

An Updated List of Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Every now and then a new and more inclusive list of fibromyalgia symptoms comes out, this one has a bit more of the weather influences and actually discusses eyes and ears. This will probably be the basis for the new list I use for updates, which I should do more often. Abdominal cramps/colic Aching jaws, especially when chewing gum Anal/genital/perineal pain Appendicitis-like pains Balance...
