Flare ups?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi, this is my first time to be in this type discussion.  I was diagnosed with fybromyalgia and hyper mobility syndrome about 9 mo. ago.  I've been struggling with pain for almost 4 years.  I hear people discuss flareups which I can only assume are days that are worse than others because I am always in pain and it does not go away.  Is this true for everyone else?  The pain does seem to be getting worse and affecting more areas.  Recently my hands and fingers have started becoming very painful, is that common?  I appreciate everyone's part in discussing and helping others like me who are struggling to understand.

    My first time on this site, disgnosed in 2016,  my fingers and hands are agony aswell, mainly my right side, i also suffer from chronic pain and tendonitis in my ankles and suffer with very bad swelling, so i know your pain and fear of whats happening hunny.

    I have been medically discharged from work now as its all too much and just want to sleep all the time, dont suppose meds helps towards that! 

    I wish you well and hope you able to rise above the pain , hugs coming your way 😊

      Oh, thank you for responding.  I have pain all over but the worst is on my left side and lately I have had swelling also.  I seem to have more and more issues and wonder...... is this fybromyalgia related or what?   It all just seems so crazy and makes me feel like I am crazy.

    Hi connie, I am sorry you are experiencing this, I have what I call flare ups which is when I experience extreme pain consecutive days, months. I am on Cymbalta 30 mg and tromadol for pain ok when no flare ups but not during flares my doctor just increased cymbalta to t0mg but has not help for pain so I thought but I quit taking the 20 mg and now I am in bad pain everywhere. Going to try other avenues. Keep us posted. What are you taking?
