What can I try

Posted , 9 users are following.

After being off work for 2wks I returned 2day and I just couldn't manage I had 2 leave half way through due 2 pain this is really gettin me down now I was nearly crying in the managers office because of the frustration of not managing my job which is embarrassing.

I know it's been hightened with stress but also know this stress is going 2 be around untill the start of june.

I am going back 2 gp in the morning but what can I do I won't take medication because of side effects today I have taken strong pain relief but it's not touching the pain

They say fibro does not get worse with time I will argue that as over the past 2yr mines has definitely got a lot worse and I feel like given up now I can't take anymore

I listen 2 my body and rest when needed but it does no good I still have these awful flares and it's them I can't take anymore

    So sorry to hear you had to go home from work, yes it is frustrating and embarrassing, it happened to me last year after being off for three and a half months, being home I thought I could cope with going back I lasted one and a half days and had to go off again I was off nearly six months altogether, I don't know how I went back and Iv struggled ever since if I'm honest with myself,

    I don't really have any advice for you sorry it just needs time, when our bodies take such a bashing our minds turn off to survive I think it's a way of healing, until the next time :-(

    It's just nice to know we're not alone and your not imagining it,

    Good luck with GP tomorrow,

    Gentle hug leona

    It does seem like it gets worse but research shows it doesn't, which is really good to know, we just get symptoms that are bad that we may not have had before and that makes us feel that it's getting worse.....it's very frustrating..I only get flare ups now..which I can handle..except when stressed-very bad for Fibro too....but I've been diagnosed for 22 yrs and probably had it for years before that...most of us have...I only take Amithriptilyne 25mg at 7pm..great nights sleep numbs the pain at the nerve end hence stopping it from going to other nerves and running rampant throughout your body..I've been on it 16yrs now..never had it increased..only side effects I ever got/get are dry mouth in the night, remedied by water on my night stand and feeling a tad tired when first get up..otherwise it's my wonder med and most of us with Fibro are on it, but many suffer differing side effects..we are all soo different anyway..especially if we have other health issues...sort of expect that....hope you get sorted soon Chris..gave a lovely day....God bless..:-) xxxx

    I so sorry to here that it's just such a terrible things we have to suffer through. Does anyone get random aches in there stomach. I get random daily aches on the left then right of my belly button and upper left sometimes upper rights area right under my sternum. It's not painful it's just noticeable and I get these aches a couple times a day. I also get aches in both my rib cages upper and lower. And constant middle and upper back aches. There is much more to many to mention:-(

      Tiswas I tried the flakes for the bath but it doesn't seem 2 help but 2bh I can lie in a bath for 20mins soaking yet as I haven't had a good few weeks and get uncomfortable. .

      Right now it's 1am I although I am tired I am 2 sore 2 get comfortable I have came down stair as don't want to keep hubby awake tossing and turning all night

      I think this is the worst I have ever felt I can honestly say every inch of my body is sore I knew I was heading for a flare but this is by far the worst

      I can't even explain the pain but maybe people will understand when I say it's like all my muscles are pumping like a heart beat and with each pump it's sore and moving my head 2 look forward is causing terrible pain shootin down my shoulders and back

      you certainly dont have to explain the pain iv just com eout of it after about 6 weeks 

      now iv got sore stiffness .and itching .whoooooopie 

      the flakes need time to work so that sproerly why they have not helped you need a good 20 mins. 

      i find the pain which i call tenderness pain responds to cold better theres a cold gel i use from on line that cools and soothes ill PM YOU WITH THE SELLER ,

      Hi I find the soak very good and would recommend it, but like you say you need to soak 20/30 minutes plus you have that time to relax a little,

      I also find the magnesium spray very good it works wonders on my neck and shoulder/arm area, although the smell is not great at first it does die down after s minute or two,

      I've read a lot on here about the colloidal gold so checked it out on line and have just ordered my first bottle, so fingers crossed, my flare up seems to be going on and on this time, but we keep going somehow 😄

      I feel very sluggish and I've been thinking about a detox although I eat healthily, Anyone out there tried a detox and how did you feel after ?

      Hugs to all.

      Hi Leona

      I do believe our diets play a part for our fibro.  I have tried many diets not due to weight loss but for health reasons.  For me I know fried food and hot chiilies in food is not good for my pains.  These aggrevate my pains. Everything is trial and error but seeing my specialist at Ayuspa he tells me all our bodies contain five elements ether, air, fire water and earth. Our bodies contain two of these more than the others. It's an imbalance of these that can affect our diets.  It's all complicated but worth looking into.

      In my opinion anything is worth a go.

      Hope you find something right for you. 

      Take care x wink

      Hi Bee, Yes I think your right, I to don't diet for my weight it's purly health, I also find some foods don't lay good with myself,

      I am a believer you are what you eat,

      Well I've just bought a super health detox book from a pound shop so that will keep me busy tonight reading to see if it might benefit me,

      Take care of yourself.

      i have accupunture and have a very damp core 

      chillies, ginger, onion family, beetroot, cucumber, raddish, hot milk , grains ,and wholemeal ,products .eggs and nuts all kill me 

      yet for me a small amount of fried food in lard /or coconut oil  is fine so is meat ,and chicken,cheese and butter  ,white bread .brocli.cauliflower,carrots,green beans white cabbage are fine

      the body is a very  complex machine ,ibelieve in eating what suits you and leaving what dosent alone

      . just because its supposed to be healthy dosent make it suitable for everyone

      dont think you will need it if you take gold every day ,

      it can cause more problems than it saves ,

      if you want to do something do the diet i did to get my candia under control, no proccesed no sugar ,including fruit and root veg , no yeasst products ,no cheese  no flour products .

      Hiya Leona and Bee....Why not give  Paleo a go,,, there is also an Autoimmune Protocol....amazing how  good it works..not really a diet..more a lifestyle, we have been on it now over two years now...had full blood tests...perfect....couldn't believe it..too good to be true...lots of food you can eat...it's all in moderation if course....no sugar or processed food at all.etc...and of course lots more info...it sort of goes against what we have always been taught 'not to eat coz it's bad for you ' not true..our bodies end up missing out on what they need to function properly..worth a google...it seems to permeating all over the worl now..many researchers and specialists worldwide admitting that : 'we got it all so wrong'. Pity we people were the Ginea pigs and we do sometimes wonder why we have all these illness...I know a lady who suffered terrible with Fibro and other issues,  she went  Paleo Autoimmune Protocol and has not had symptoms for years..I am on just the Paleo...soooo good.I'm on it for health too but if you are overweight it will drop off you..my husband was a bit under and he put

       a bit  on--it seems to correct your weight, as it's just what our body needs....worth a try...be blessed..:-) xxrazz
