Fibro Flare or Normal??

First off, I want to say Thank You to everyone here. I don't post very much, but always here reading and learning. I am the one off in the corner all the time lol

My question to you is about what you guys refer to as " Fibro Flares". What does that term mean exactly to "you" and how do you consider "normal" and a "flare". Reason I ask is for me I have on a weekly basis 2-3 days a week where I just shut down. I HAVE to sleep or I get physically ill and it usually means an additional 8-12 hours during the day. Is this a "flare" that comes up this often during the week or is this my norm?

I often wonder if I have Chronic Fatigue as well or if there is more going on. I have really supportive bosses at work, but I just don't know how long they are going to allow me to take 2-3 days a week off.

Any one have any thoughts?

Re: Fibro Flare or Normal??

Hi, I can get weeks were I am exactly as you have described. Then I can get a few good weeks were the pain and the fatigue are more easily managed. I found as time goes on I am better at balancing the whole work rest thing, I manages the fibro better by not over doing things on a good day which was a mistake I made many times in the past.
