Hi difly,
I get pain above and around my eyes,it feels like pressure pain and it usually leads to a headache then full blown migrane,not nice at all!!
Nothing eases it,just got to ride it out!
I feel the same as you about the forum,it's great to be able to talk about stuff that I don't share with my familly or friends, they can never understand fully what im going through but you guys do!
Take care hun xx

hi difly

i can get pains in the top of my head and just slap it with my hand,

a headache usually leads to a migraine and i have to go to bed and shut all the curtains.

i find it more relaxing when i am home alone wiwth the little lad, as everyone else seems to insist on putting lights on in lving room which i really hate and give me a headache.

take care adn welcome.

Hi
many thanks for your posts as you can imagine when you feel pain in a different place thats not familiar i get confused and my thoughts begin to think its this and that , and then i think i carnt go back to Dr they already have me down as a hypocondriac
the fibro journey sure is a difficult path to follow ,take care and stay strong xxxxx

Hi me again just wanted to give an update ,because the pain above my eyes got worse i went back to see my GP this time they said I had an infection in my eye lid now scripted anti biotics ,its so true to say you cannot put everything down to fibro ,I have been back and forth to GP with eye complaint for ages and they brush me off , we have to keep strong and stand are ground
take care xxxxx

It's very true difly, that's why you often see comments about having something new/worsening/generally worrying checked out. You never know what could be behind what you're feeling :shock: :shock: :yikes:

Mothysmam can you please not post using all capital letters. We ask for it not to be done because it is t'interweb equivalent of shouting, and is regarded as very poor nettiquette.
