What Is Post-Exertional Malaise?

The Basics & Reasons for Disbelief

This is very problematic for me. I can barely stay awake anymore. The simplest thing and I am done and back in bed asleep. It is getting worse.

Symptoms of Fibromyalgia


Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Rereading about the symptoms of Fibromyalgia reminded me that some of my most recent pain and exhaustion could be related to the Fibromyalgia. It is really amazing how many crazy symptoms that fibromyalgia has. It is hard at times to isolate the symptoms from more serious disorders/diseases. It is possible this last hospital stay could have been partly due to fibromyalgia flareups. I hate it when I go through a long hospital stay and then find out that it could have been simply the fibromyalgia for which there is no cure and never know  when or for how long it will flare up.

CBD for Fibromyalgia: Is it Effective, Safe, or Legal? — CBD is from cannabis, but without the high


CBD for Fibromyalgia: Is it Effective, Safe, or Legal?

CBD is from cannabis, but without the high

******************************

I have tried this in many forms and it is expensive and does nothing at all. My doctor offers medical marijuana, well that is even more expensive. You have the original license to buy and then the product itself is expensive and not readily available. You have to travel to get it unless you happen to be near where it is dispensed. You have to renew your license frequently. I couldn’t qualify the cost and since the CBD didn’t help I don’t hold out much hope for help from the medical marijuana. It may help some and if you can afford it and find a doctor who will prescribe it then, of course, try it if you wish to. I bought the CBD products my doctor sold swearing they were better than the ones I ordered online. It did nothing either.

**************************

I wonder if this is part of my current problem. My pain is getting much worse and I have been on opioids for over a year and a half. The suggestion of weaning off the opioid is kind of scary. It was the only thing that seemed to help me, but now something is wrong.

Why We Have Low Energy and How to Fight It

****************************

I think part of my problem right now is my fibromyalgia is in full flare. My exhaustion is horrible. I can barely get out of bed let alone do anything. My apartment is a mess and it feels like I get 2 steps forward and then 3 back. And the pain is tremendous compared to the normal pain from my disorders – arthritis, degenerative disk disease and then top it off with a full flare of my fibro.

Why Fibromyalgia or ME/CFS May Worsen Period Pain

It has been many, many years since I had to deal with period pain so I can’t tell you if I feel it adds to my Fibromyalgia pain.

Sex With Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome


Sex With Fibromyalgia or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

There would be times that I would find sex with Fibromyalgia to be painful. It would depend on just what I was feeling at the time. Pain comes and goes and so do the other symptoms. You would and should talk with your partner about what you are feeling emotionally and physically as well. In some cases it may not be possible depending on how bad your Fibromyalgia is and some people are certainly worse and in more pain than others. The rougher the sex the more exhausted you might end up being. Just take it slow and easy and talk your partner through it. If they’re understanding they will work with you to make the experience a good one.
