Re: Omg pain

oh goodness I would feel the same way! Try a hot epson salt bath to draw the soreness out. Soak as long as you can like an hour even. It will help. Drink plenty of water, juice, do you do B12? Magnesium is good for muscle pain. Hope this helps, Cathy

Re: Omg pain

As sore as you might feel after you've had your soak in the bath (or shower if no bath) do lots of stretching - everywhere. The connective tissue can send pain anywhere so the more we can stretch with fibro the better. My stretching is pathetic in comparison to what it used to be - however I now religiously stretch for 10 minutes after any exercise - even if it's a gentle walk. And if I'm not exercising that day I always stretch after a hot bath/shower. Have noticed a gradual improvement and it's a life saver after exercise - I'd be unable to walk after exercise if I didn't stretch thoroughly

Re: Omg pain

Honey I have tried all of that, I am in so much pain I can't stand it I am a caregiver myself and finding that I can't take care of someone else. what do I do does fibro this extreme qualify me for disability I don't know what to do. I broke down this afternoon while trying to take care of my girlfriend who has ALS, I can't even hold a cup for her while she drinks thru a straw , very depressed
