Fibro pain is the devil..

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

Thought I was on the road to finding my motivation to work out. I have been on the new lifestyle change for close to 3 months. Lost 15 pounds and have kept it off. That is all without exercise. I think of the possibilities if only I were to get some movement in my daily routine.. Always tomorrow. I will go for a walk with the little one.
Tomorrow comes, I hurt. Maybe the next day will be better. I am just having one of those days.
The next day comes, I hurt. Am I having another flair up? How long has the fibro pain been hibernating?
The next day comes, I hurt. I miss work. I think to myself, well, there is next Monday. I will start the week new and fresh and motivated!
I pop pain relievers, massage the sore spots, but when I get home from work. I am tired and my body is tender.
2 weeks later, I hope I am nearing the end of the flair up. I will dust off the map and get back on the road to search for the motivation.

    Hi i'm Nateese, and new at all of this.
    I know how you feel, everyday is slow start for me. For a long time I thought my family would just be better without me. I'm in a better place today thanks to a tone of shots and radial ablations..still getting shots every couple weeks. I'm over weight because I can't move, and hurt so bad that sometimes I don't move tell 3 in the afternoon. Coffee helps ( lots of it).
    I hope you start to feel better soon. If you ever just need someone to talk to, send me a message. I know that it is hard to talk to people that don't understand. I'm here for you.

    I literally feel your pain. I have fought with this off and on for awhile and found that setting a routine and sticking to it keep flare ups at bay. Even if it is just a quick walk on a lunch break it helps. Since I have been dieting and working out I have had less and less flair ups. But I have to keep myself on a routine and stick with it. Hope it helps.

    I'm so sorry... I really feel for you! I guess it just goes to show that nothing can fix everything (though I really was starting to think Paleo/Primal could). Are your fibro flares any better with the diet change to Paleo? Have you considered a strict elimination process to see if that can help? I recently discovered (so much to my surprise) that I likely have a nightshade sensitivity that was obscured by all the other health-related 'noise'... potatoes/tomatoes/peppers (which have always been among my favourite foods and I thought I could eat without any trouble) now appear to be my biggest triggers for inflammation and IBS related stuff... I'm okay if I keep these foods on the 20 side of 80/20, but if I have any one of them a day, I will have trouble.

    Also, check this out:

    I started using this product months before I went Primal/Paleo and it is solely responsible for my health making a dramatic turn around... especially with respect to insomnia, hair loss, inflammation, energy, and shoulder/wrist/elbow pain. Within two weeks I could function in ways I had all but given up on... I felt 15 years younger. I don't really understand how/why it works, but it does (I've recommended it to several other people who have also had amazing results). I've also tested it by going off, experiencing an obvious decline in well-being, and a return to wellness within two weeks of resuming. My understanding from my endocrinologist is that the unique combination of trace minerals fills in metabolic/endocrine gaps that allow for optimal functioning of the endocrine, metabolic and hormonal processes which strengthen autoimmune functioning.

    I'll be keeping you in my prayers!
