Pfrog, burns me up when some idiot claims a reasonable accommodation is preferential treatment. Your bosses sound like good people.

The new employee I trained this week was kind enough to share her cold with me. On top of all the typical cold symptoms it's triggered a fibro flare. Oh joy, oh rapture!

Sorry, liz, and everyone else who's struggling. My fibro is pretty tame at the moment, but my back is giving me fits. I know I have issues such as stenosis and arthritis in my spine. I'm going to get an MRI soon. I think I have a slipped disc and other new developments. I'm staying at home a lot. I didn't even feel like going to Target last night to shop--and that shows I'm not feeling well. Ouch, groan, moan...

I went to the shop today to buy some fizzy, and I have to share this: the woman behind the counter stopped what she was doing to have a conversation and a laugh with me

having someone stop and talk to me is so rare, I really apreciated it

Fibro is being a real %*%^* right now , but it always is after we do the Florida trip.

While down there my dogs both bolted out the door of hotel , both leashes were on one hand as I needed keycard in the other to open doors to the outside. They both weigh 60+ lbs and they never act this stupid.

Needless to say it really hurt my wrist, I doubt anything is at all broken, based on the area and how it moves up into my thumb Iím thinking tendon pain and WOW does it hurt/burn/ache.

Has anyone dealt with an possible tendon injury and if so any rough idea of healing time? I did buy a brace for it

Gentle hugs !

It's not the same thing, @~Christina, but I do occasionally get tendonitis in my fingers and hands and it hurts like the dickens.

It generally lasts from several days to weeks depending on how much I keep aggravating it.

Have you figured out why you hurt more after your trips to Florida?

Stress? ... Even good stress (like a nice vacation) can make you hurt worse.

And I know cold is an issue for those with chronic pain, but I find excessive heat kinda messes with me too.

Here's to good healing on that wrist, and gentle hugs for all them other aches and pains.

Thanks , it helps to know it could be a few more days or weeks , least I feel like there is a end to it all

Trips to and from Florida are always a problem 14 hour drive each way, strange beds, me on the go trying to squeeze in as much time with the kids as possible.

I am always stressed before the trip and while there. My Bipolar also always takes a beating as I can not maintain any sort of routine like I have here at home.

We got lucky the first 5 days it mostly rained so it wasnít typical Florida hot humid hell. But then the rain stopped and I seriously canít handle heat , I grew up there , didnít leave til age 34, I was always over heating in the summer which in Florida last 9 months.

I hope your feeling okay

Interesting that heat triggers a flare for you guys. It's the opposite for me. Love the heat (I am a lizard afterall!) Cold just about kills me.

Christina, wear the brace day and night for awhile. Gently massaging across the tendon might help. I've gotten conflicting advise about using heat vs cold. I like the advice of a physical therapist I saw - use which ever feels best.

I don't seem to do well in the Florida heat either. But I love Florida otherwise and would love to go back there soon!

I donít think the heat flares my Fibro , itís the 14 hour drive and strange beds, running non stop. But the heat literally makes me sick, I can over heat so quickly, my husband just cant understand why he can tolerate it so much better when we both grew up in Florida.

The cold fronts here in Tennessee now those oh damn do they keep me flared up almost constantly. A pal on Facebook showed that the farmers almanac is showing itís going to be a awful frigid winter, I sure hope thatís a big fat lie.

Thank you for the advice about the brace , I wasnít sure if I should keep it on or off. Internet searches told me both ways ???? So yes itís staying on and I will start massaging the area. Ice not heat seemed to do much of anything so I gave that but up.

Hope your doing well and that mess brewing to the south just twirls off to the far east and the spaghetti models can just quit the nonsense.
