Oh dear, you have my sympathy. Don't go fretting and stressing over the next one, it will only slow your recovery. Enjoy the better days. Don't try to do too much.

I'm currently trying to deal with a flare up that seems to be getting worse each day. As soon as I start to feel better i do something normal and bam.

Currently trying to find sanctuary in a hot bath (topped up 3 times) its the only thing that I find helps. That and then padding myself with pillows on the sofa.

I wish you all the very best. I completely get you being worried about your next flare up. I'm worried that this won't stop. And then I know if it does have will worry that when it happens again will it be worse than this time or longer. Stupid brain. Gotta get my head in gear to stop the vicious cycle.

Good luck x Lisa x x

You have my sympathy I used to have very heavy periods that made me anaemic & wiped me out completely I was constantly tired and it got worse just before my period I didn't have a life as I was fatigued most of the time I'm now on an injection to put me through the menopause so at least I have some kind of life I am at this moment also having a flare up I can't get comfy no matter what I do but I do try everything such as hot water bottle keeping warm hot baths surrounding myself with pillows and I now have a new symptom to deal with noise sensitivity where loud noises hurts my head badly & makes me feel sick its horrible I hate feeling like this not good but at least I'm alive :-)

Im sorry you are having such a bad flare up. At least ten years on for me (when CFS was changed to FM) had hysterectomy because of the same probs you are having, and wham bam CFS became FM. I now have a good drugs regime and I move up and down with how much I take and when, (as long as I tell the doc what I am doing - its not worth the effort of going in to see her and telling her I have cut down so I know how much pain my body is dealing with). I am having a bad flare at mo, but I am doing my best not to stay in bed, I make myself come downstairs (stairlift) and laze on the settee instead. Hubby keeps trying to give me a massage on my shoulders, but I cant stand the pain and its hard to tell him its not him, that it hurts. . . argghhh, regarding the lost tea, I have found my drink in the fridge (not bad when its water) but the car keys next to it told a tale. In freezer, don't ask me how cos I have no recollection of even going to the freezer. Enjoy your tea, remember the rest rule, and hope it passes soon :)

It's good you found your tea, & your keys. I searched everywhere today for a cardigan which I found later in the washing machine, a load I'd done yesterday & had forgotten about, some days seem to be worse than others :( loud noise, I can't handle loud noise either, adverts, action films, shopping malls even people laughing, i become snappy, tired & nauseous :( I was wondering if any of you have a sensitivity to smells? I find it hard to explain as my concentration keeps going but as with being able to hear things other people don't seem to be able to hear I also smell things they can't smell or to me it is far stronger than they can. It can be something nice, sometimes it's not so nice & I can't find where it's coming from, sometimes I can walk past someone in the street & it's like they've slapped me in the face, I then can't get rid of the smell & start to feel nauseous too. Is it just me?

Hi lala ,pls don't worry over the next flare it won't make it any better in fact the stress of worrying will only make u feel more tired out and sore,two things to remember
One you will get another flare
Two you will ride it out and get used to them in your life.not only that your learn when it's coming and what makes them happen and what helps.
Your not alone there's so many of us,just remember she your feeling rough we're all feeling rough with you xxx
smiles and the world smiles with you. cry and you cry alone.

Hey Lala1980

I know how your feeling, having a bad day myself today, noises which have been coming from my daughter have been too loud to cope with (its not her fault bless her) which has left me feeling agitated and a bit weepy :-| A feeling I have felt for some time but until now never understood why :?:

I am still in the process of being diagnosed but both my doctor and neurologist have both said its fibro just need the rhumatologist to 'confirm' this.

Hope your ok and so glad to know that this forum is here, a problem shared is a problem halved

Take care
Sarah
