Unhappy Re: The Fibromyalgia check in thread #4

Well, THAT Pain has returned again ... The SOB!

I hope it doesn't last two months like it did last time!

At least I had a respite from it, albeit a short one (about 2.5 weeks)!

I'm going to try to cope and deal with it a little better this go round, but ...

It's going to be a challenge, I know!

ME TOO! And it wasn't even the shoulder- I was just so restless and couldnt find a comfortable position.
I had joint replacement surgery on my cmc(thumb) joint last April. After 6 months it was amazing- zero pain and pretty good dexterity. Now this past week it has started to ache the exact same way it did presurgery and I feel like my hand is weak and clumsy again. What gives?:

Yep, lots of weather-associated pain for me too. Anybody find warmth, like getting under the covers or a water bottle, helpful?

Oh, Yes!

Heat's definitely helpful.

Then I'll have a hot flash and be like ...

I think if men had to go through what women go through that human beings would have ceased to exist thousands of years ago!

Trav, heat most definitely helps me. I've been known to crank the temp down on the A/C so I can wrap up in a heated throw to help with the pain.

I'm honestly not sure.

I think if I'm having a bad day with the pain, I'm having a bad day with the pain. no amount of heat really does anything

today could be better as far as pain goes, but not the worst it's been this week

I am going back to the pain management doc tomorrow-he's the one I started with for the sjogrens and arthritis. He had given me a shot in the shoulder before we knew it was a rotator cuff tear. I am going to ask to temporarily increase my pain medication to get through pt and so I can sleep. I only take a small amount (5mg twice a day) so I cant imagine it would be an issue. I am going on my third day of only having been able to sleep for two hours. I started out in the bed-then recliner-sofa and back to the recliner. I had a pt eval and start it tomorrow. Everyone I have talked to that has pt for rotator cuff says the pain is worse with pt.
