I know it's been a long time since you wrote this question, but I have the same questions myself. I personally use pain meds and muscle relaxers to help with my pain, which is daily. I can't remember the last time I didn't had pain. If I sleep too long the stiff muscles get to me first thing but tend to work themselves out after an hour or so. Other than that, it's the afternoon to evening period that has the worst pain for me. I sit at a desk all day, which I think contributes to the problem. I'm trying to get back into going to the biweekly fibro aquatics class at my gym and doing the treadmill, eliptical, and stationary bike on the days that I cant' do the class. I'm also listening to the audio version of The power of Habit, and I'm hoping it might help me with developing regular exercise habits. I seem to do well for awhile and then I always seem to relapse. I'm hoping that one day it will stick, like quitting smoking did. I tried to quit over and over and didn't manage. Then one day I did manage. It's been 2 1/2 years since I had a ciggarette. Does anyone else deal with a constant daily pain, or do you just have flare ups?

Thanks for your support. Fibro is such a lonely condition because nobody can see what you are going through on the outside.

I know what you are going through, the weather here has been gloomy, rainy and cold. I handle mine with more than usual rest and meds. Hope you pass through this flare soon. emoticon

I will do my best to meet and surpass my goal. Never stop learning or trying to achieve success. Never give up keep plugging away. If it is to be it's up to me. .

Hi, my Fibro is getting better due to weather changes in my part of the world. It's amazing how rainy weather can affect my pain level. emoticon

Hi,
I'm sorry to hear that your fibro is getting the better of you right now. Definitely been there and can totally relate to what you're going through.
My fibro is being treated with pain meds, rest and exercise. It seems like when I'm on an emotional downswing that my fibro frequently flares.
I hope you feel better soon. :-)

Hi, there! I currently deal with Fibro by taking medication and by periods of rest following periods of activity. I also meditate using meditation videos from YouTube. At the moment, though, my Fibro is getting the better of me, as I find that by the end of the day I am just drained of energy from the various things I have had to do to stay mobile. emoticon

Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Fibromyalgia symptoms include chronic pain in the muscles, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender points or trigger points at certain parts of the body. Fibromyalgia pain and other symptoms can be relieved through medications, lifestyle changes, stress management, and other fibromyalgia treatment.

How do you live with this? Medications, meditation, chiropractor...what helps you the best?
