Unhappy Re: Fibromyalgia Check-In Thread #5 ...

I'm sorry shower's hurt so bad @raging vortex ...

I miss being able to get into the tub for a hot soak.

It got to where it was just to painful to get myself back up and out, and I seriously doubt I could even do that now!

When it comes to taking a shower, it isn't so much the pain as how exhausted I am afterwards.

The things that regular folks take for granted tend to destroy those of us that struggle with chronic pain issues.

ChildofChaos I am so sorry that you are hurting But I am glad you are voicing it.. Often it helps to just be heard when we struggle with chronic pain...

I've been in a massive flare for 3 months now and I dont think it will ever ease any.. I am binge watching ER and falling in to show allows me a bit of an escape.. I also have a book series I love, Distractions ....

Is there anything you can do that offers you any kind of relief even if just temporary? Sometimes a bath is nice or a shower or doing gentle stretches.. Im still looking for something to help me, If I find something else to try I will let you know so you may want to try

Mostly we try to distract, like you said... We have medicine, but we don't like taking it all the time because it's an NSAID so it can cause stomach problems. However, thinking we're going to take it tonight. With our muscle relaxer.
