So I have actually been feeling pretty good for the last couple of weeks. Low energy but not hurting so bad. That all changed yesterday of course! Horrible pain in my lower body and hands and wrists. Today I am in San Diego for the start of Comic Con. Thought I'd be able to go without the cane this year but it hasn't even been a full day and I am in so much pain already Great time for the fibro to flare up! Very sorry for what everyone else had been going through. Much love and many pain free hugs for all of you!

Now I can spend more time taking care of me and my health. i recently began a program at Spaulding Rehab in Boston for people who live with chronic pain and also started chiropractic care. i am happy to find this group and look forward to 'meeting' you all.

Welcome Jenne How is the chronic pain program working for you? My DH has diabetic neuropathy. He sees a diabetes specialist at the Joslin Center in Boston. Do you live in MA? We're south of Boston.

Seems like so many headaches and other pains.. I think around here the heat is getting to everyone.. We had no summer, and then BAM we got it...

Heading in for a 3 hour appt for a bone scan tomorrow/today.. I will be glad when it is over.

We had a nice vacation, despite the tropical storm drowning us for one day, we made the best of it.. HOme to laundry and just reality sucks...
How was the bone scan? I hope it went as well as possible. This heat is crazy... I'm glad that you had a nice vacation. Weather is always the one thing that we can never plan for or have control over.

I'm sorry that you're having more pain now. Can you rent a scooter to get around at Comic Con? I'd love to go there some year! I have bad arthritis in my wrists, hands, shoulders, etc so I can never use a pain. When we go to WDW I usually have to rent a scooter, just to be able to get around. I hope that you can make the best of your time there. Let me know if you see any celebrities.



As for me, I've been doing ok. I am so glad that I was able to go on the day shift at work; I'd never be able to make it in to work by evening time anymore. The Adderall is working "ok" I guess. There really is no miracle cure or pill or medication that is going to make us all feel normal.

rosanab1031 Wishing you better days.. The timing of flares really sucks at times :hugs:

Glad you are on days SS.. The bone scan was just llllooong. I got injected at about 11:15, had to hang around until 1:45 for it to go through me.. I sat outside for a very brief time, as it is hovering in the 100's, and then waited indoors.. Seems I have so many appts with therapy for my shoulder, my old one and so many tests. I see my Dr next week to get the results.


Hugs everyone

I'll be going to Joslin this Thursday with my husband. He's been "battling" diabetes for several years; it's hard for him to keep his sugars level.

I love Quincy! After the HBO "John Adams" mini-series came out we went up there and took the tour. I loved it! I love the history here in New England.

Great to hear from you tigg The weather has been brutal. It finally cooled off a little here. It was only in the 80s here today.

I hope that you are feeling better soon. My pain levels have been high the last few days; no idea why. Then again, we never know why, do we. It's like a tag-team wrestling match between pain and fatigue. The days when I have neither are few and far between.

Looking forward to your "lots to tell" once you are feeling up to it.





I hope everyone is doing ok.

Hi Guys just a quick post to let everyone know that Dr Oz is having a segment on Fibro tomorrow...let's see if he has anything new.

Seaspray my pain levels are way up at night. Leg pain unbearable I'm back to wishing I was Mrs potato head and could just pop those legs off for a few hrs or maybe a night. Fatigue keeps creeping up on me in am. Waking up feeling like each day will be a decent one. Eat, start to settle in a plan for the day then BOOM! Major fatigue where I have trouble staying awake sitting up so back to bed I go about an hr maybe two after I wake up Tag team is great description of it.

Hope all is well with you and everyone else here

Hi everyone.

Well my laptop is suffering from a virus. Not sure if its able to be fixed. I'm on my son's tablet right now.

Tigg how are you feeling?

I've been having pretty bad pain this week. Not sure whether its due to the big change in weather or not.

Dh and I went to Boston today for his diabetes specialist appt. His blood levels aren't great but not terrible either.

On the way home we went to one of our favorite restaurants in Quincy. And I'm such a geek I got all excited as we drove past John Adams home which is an historical site. I love American history especially revolutionary war history. That's the best part of living in New England.

In other news, my vacation request for thanksgiving week got denied now we can't go to New Jersey to spend time with my family when all of my siblings and their families. I am fairly depressed about this but its not the end of the world right?

I hope everyone is doing ok!

Tigg: Sending you some good wishes for less pain...

SeaSpray: Sorry to hear that it got denied.. Maybe things will change closer to the date? Are you allowed any switching amongst yourselves?

I am exhausted and just fed up of Dr's appt and pysio appts.. Tomorrow is my first day since returning from vacation that I have NOTHING.. I hope to rest and maybe sit in the sun..

Hugs to all

They actually do have a great disabled services at Comic Con. You can rent a scooter or a wheel chair for a $20 deposit It's just kind of a pain to get through the con when there are SO many ppl. So I just go with my cane. I actually picked up a really pretty custom cut one this year

Glad that your new work shift is working out for you. Wish there was a miracle cure for all of us

Much love and many pain free hugs to all

Hi everyone

I got my laptop back last night!

Not too much new here; pain has been bearable most days, fatigue has been ok for the most part, but still having to take a nap some afternoons.

Instead of going to NJ to see my family for Thanksgiving, we are going down for a long weekend in October, to be with my family for the 10 year anniversary of my mother's death. OUR mother, I should say. One of my brothers is planning to have everyone over for dinner that weekend, so I feel a lot better about not being able to go down for Thanksgiving. I've already gotten the days off in October approved at work.

I did see the Dr. Oz segment on fibromyalgia. Even though there wasn't any new information it was nice to see it being spoken of in a positive, medical-community-accepted light. Dr. Oz took it seriously, so that was good.

I hope everyone is ok.
