I wish I knew what causes this... internet is just full of different theories, and that's not helpful..

Fibromyalgia very much makes my whole body feel crappy.
Trying to manage my symptoms has become even more crappy.

Re: fibromyalgia-what does it do to my body and why do i feel so crappy all the time?

Ditto all of the above. Your two headed question "what does it do to my body and why do I feel so crappy all of the time" could fill volumes in trying to answer. "What does it do to my body" can't be easily answered because everyone's body reacts differently to fibro. But you "feel crappy all the time" because you have fibro. Google, read, absorb, talk with your medical professionals. Support groups like this one can help you understand and deal with specific symptoms and problems. When you see your doctor, have a list of questions ready to ask, don't depend on your memory. I know mine's not worth relying on anymore.

Good reading and good luck. Try to stay postive.

Re: fibromyalgia-what does it do to my body and why do i feel so crappy all the time?

fibro tricks your body. it tells you you have immense pain, yet when you look at the part of you that hurts it still looks the same. it tells your mind you are in pain. your mind believes it because it is real. the pain is real. yet it has no origin, no logic, no outward aspects one can look at and say, there it is.
it is invisible to all eyes, yet very real. even you can't see it. nor can i. yet we know it lives with us daily.
why does it do what it does? because it can. simple as that. once accepted and understood pain can lessen, why? because you know what it is so it can't scare you into making it worse. it will thrive on your fears, your worries, your frustrations. do not feed it and perhaps you will find peace with the pain you do have to live with.
peace,
bluelakelady

Re: fibromyalgia-what does it do to my body and why do i feel so crappy all the time?

Very well said Bluelakelady! To me it's like i've been beat and even though there is Horrible pain there are no bruises or marks that Show that i've been beat up. Sometimes my upper body hurts soo bad that I feel like 2 people have hold of each arm and they're trying to pull them off. Moving hurts, sitting still hurts, breathing hurts. I wish I knew What causes FM and what it does do to our bodies and maybe i'd be able to stop it.

Re: fibromyalgia-what does it do to my body and why do i feel so crappy all the time?

There are so many symptoms and issues that fibro folks deal with. I think the most difficult one is it is not predictable from day to day, and sometimes, from hour to hour. At least for me, that's a tough one, leading to a fear of making commitments because of not knowing how I will feel.

But, crappy is a good description of how I do feel - alot. Wouldn't it be great if one of those fibro commercials included someone saying, "I just feel crappy most of the time." ??!!!

Re: fibromyalgia-what does it do to my body and why do i feel so crappy all the time?

It makes me feel like crap most the time too. The pain is unrelenting.

The crappy feeling sorta feels like I always have a flu.
A beat up feeling describes some of the pain too. And at times it feels like my lower legs are being crushed.
Have Percocet and Loratab, and also Tramadol but they only take the edge off. They also make me very nauseated. So I can either choose btween nausea or pain.
Just love living each day in a hell on earth. Ain't it great.

Re: fibromyalgia-what does it do to my body and why do i feel so crappy all the time?

I have fibro, and untill my Dr. had me try Adderall I felt the same as you. I know it sounds crazy, but it really helps with pain. Did some research on my own and found out that others w/fibro agree. I still have horrible days sometimes, but not EVERY day. Hope this helps

Re: fibromyalgia-what does it do to my body and why do i feel so crappy all the time?

I have taken adderall XR for several years before being diagnosed with Fibro I was at 30mg daily. I have had to go down to 10mg every other day because I get very very bad headaches if I take it daily. I am on it because I have add.
