Flare ups

Postby Kriistiee » Wed Oct 28, 2015 12:47 am


I was just wondering if any of you have managed to 'track' your flare ups at all. I have kept a pain diary for months now and no two days are the same, no reason for pains when I have pains and some days I feel completely 'normal'. Im trying to figure my body out and why I'm in pain like this at my age.. The doctor thinks I have fibro but I have people contradicting me saying 'oh it's just general wear and tear' or 'it's your age'. I'm only 23 but I feel 100

Firstly if you haven't got a definite diagnosis then push your doctor for one, better still get them to refer you on to a specialist, as you may have Fibro, but you may have something else completely. My pain is never the same throughout the day, never mind from day to day. Even when a day begin okay, it can end up with me shuffling from place to place or curling up in bed.

the flare ups I've had in the past 2 years have come after: 1. somebody reversed into me - it didn't seem so bad at the time, but I felt it after a few days, and then for months afterwards...2. a deadline at work meant I was doing a lot more (physical) work for a few weeks, then boom - incapacitated and off work!...and 3...overdoing the physical exercise - I had built up from 40 lengths in the pool to over 60 over several months, then one day I did nearly 70 lengths :nono: , and for months after I could barely get to the swimming pool or swim even 1 length (I had to be pleased with myself that I had managed some 'bobbing about'! :oops: :lol: ). 6 months later I have gradually worked up to nearly 20 lengths and then I FORCE MYSELF TO GET OUT before I overdo it. Ups and downs, but you see some sort of pattern there. When I got married I had hardly any pain for several months...Flare or remission = stressed or deeply happy???!!!
