Try exercising in a pool. I had to start by walking a lap in the pool and slowly building up endurance. Hard to do, I know. I've been in a terrible flare-up since January and it's really geting to me.
I will def try that. It's hard to force yourself to do anything when you feel awful, even when ou know what's best. I'm sorry to hear about your flare up. Do you mind me asking what types of meds you take for it?
I'm sorry you are having so much trouble with your fibromyalgia and the myriad problems it's causing you. I can relate to the trying of every known medication under the sun. My only advice is to maybe find a good physiatrist (not psychiatrist), as they can deal not only with your fibromyalgia, but try to treat the WHOLE person, hopefully improving your quality of life substantially. The only other thing is to maybe switch your current opiate regimen with some different types in order to deal with tolerance issues. My pain management doctor switches mine around on an as needed basis. It helps me alot. We also switch nerve pain drugs somewhat frequently- say from lyrica back to neurontin, etc.. Hope you get some type of relief soon, GOOD LUCK,
Also try acupuncture, it helped me, although the results were only short-term. As you know even short-term pain relief can be a godsend though! Some people have told me that biofeedback and hypnosis has helped them a lot. Good luck with everything-again!
