Where does it hurt ? I asked the lady next to me this morning at hydrotherapy.
She said "From the top of my head to my toes."
What happens to you when you get a flare up of Fibromyalgia? I get:
- increased pain in most of my joints (Notice the word increased)
- increased pain in my calf muscles
- a headache - usually mild and in the temples
- an electric feeling that I can feel in my lower limbs and hands
- usually a lack of taste
- blocked feeling in ears
- increased tinnitus that is louder than normal
- increased fatigue
That is how I feel today, so please have a look at any old posts that may interest you until I can post again:
