Working with students with Fibromyalgia

Hi everyone. I teach occasionally at a University and I'm about to start a project with a group of students, one of which has Fibromyalgia.

The student has sent me a fact sheet so I can understand a lot of the symptoms and how it may impact on the project but it would be great to hear from others as to what has helped them when dealing with teachers / directors. I really want it ...

Hip pain/doctor says no to xray

Hi all, first time posting here and was hoping for some advice/oponions.
6 weeks ago my daughter fractured her spine, she lives 150 miles away from me. I basically left my home to spend 8am til 8pm at the hospital for 3 weeks.

Wasp Sting!

Hi all, just asking if anyone has been stung by a wasp whilst having fibro? I was stung in the hip, through my jeans yesterday afternoon, and it hurt like hell. Since then the pain has not subsided in any way. The pain has gone from my hip all the way down my leg and its excruciating. The sting site isn't red or swollen anymore and I've taken antihistamines, ibrufen and sting cream but nothing ...

Help and advice

Hi all, looking for some help please.

I started with Fibro in 2011 and it was really bad at first but whilst always having pain after a year or so it was mostly confined to flare ups. Having severe weakness and fatigue I would fall to sleep literally everywhere, in the car, in the office, at home, literally everywhere. The only time I would get real sleep disturbances were during flare ups, otherwise always slept ...

Hemp oil

Dear friends, Has anyone tried Hemp oil, or Hemp capsules, for the pain of fibromyalgia? Just been reading about it, and for some, it appears to have worked to give some relief. My pain has been so severe for weeks now, I have wondered how I could carry on. Cannot lay, cannot sit for long without such pressure pain everywhere. Can hardly move at all. The latest flare-up has involved both knees with extreme groin ...

Fibro newbie

Hi all, apologies for what may be some dumb questions, but i have only recently been diagnosed with FM and i seem to have more questions than answers at the moment!
Q1. I seem to tick many of the 'ailments' boxes, but not all, especially when i read about the amount of pain that many of you suffer. I get a degree of aches and pains but nothing on the scale of others. I also ...

Sore head in bed

Hi, does anyone else find that the weight of their head on the pillow makes their scalp sore, or if laying on ones side then that ear is sore. I tried different pillows and recently bought an orthopaedic pillow but that actually made it worse, not sure what else to do as I cannot sleep sitting up :roll:
