FMS does not flare-up ?!?

Hello, I was reading some posts and a doctor had said that FMS patient does not have flare ups... This is not at all what I've read elsewhere, been told by rheumo... Nor experience (dx'd with Fibro 2 years ago).

I've had fibro for about 15 years and I can tell you definitively, from my own experience, that fibro DOES flare - at least mine certainly does!!!  It is true, however, that fibro can affect each person differently, so it is possible that one sufferer may have horrible flares, while someone else may have only very mild flares.

Definitely flares up.  When I get that flue like feeling, can't see or think through the fog, and my mouth feels like cotton I know a flare is starting.

Thank you both! Thought I could possibly be losing my mind when I read that... I guess, as they say, some doctors are just not familiar with Fibro and assume what they want.
I am on Short Term Disability right now and was on intermittent FMLA prior; every time I had to call to report an absence, they asked if it was a Fibro Flare Up...
Of course, it was, but you never know how the insurance companies are going to try to deny claims. So I just wanted some assurance.

Oh ya fibro flares very common for me.  I have one really bad one at least once a month that last at least a week.  I just lay in bed until it gets better, but pain killers help me.  right now not seeing a dr, so I just have to some how make it through.  I take at least 2 scolding hot showers a day to have any relief at all.
