Holy mother of god such pain

I have been crippled by pain, pain of unknown origins. The tendons in my feet and knees hurt like hell, all week really, but the worst of Friday. I could not really walk. I could shuffle my feet and even that was very painful. Every movement would cause pain, less pain was I did not like my feet. Likewise I had the same pain in my hands, and swelling, and redness and the shakes. And weak muscles as overwall, partly I could not lift my feet was because the muscles were so weak, so if I tried to walk normally, the pain was worse, and my control over my balance was off... I kept lurching to the left for some reason. Very unsteady. It was like super FMS. Instead of a buildup of pain from exerting yourself, and then days of greater pain to recover from exerting yourself... it was a similar weakness and pain, but for no reason, and very painful right away, getting worse daily and then today very mild. Very weird. So FMS or some wierd side effect? Well doctor does not know, as the med I am on is new to the market, and he believes this effect could be a side effect of my migraine preventative. Or it could be the result of using the Amerge as a migraine abortive too many times in a row, which was my only option since his whole anti-inflammatory thing did not work. So he is going to send me for the usual run of tests and not get me to stop any meds, and speak to my neuro about them. And thus it is a very good thing I did not mention the side effects of the Amerge; the chest pains and shortness of breath... which makes me take my asthma puffer more often to help with the breathing. Without the Amerge I would be screwed, since I have no alternative med to help. I need it, to keep working, so I need to be on it. Cause my boss is pissed and I will be fired. And so really need to be rid of this side effect, becuase that is a whole lot of pain shuffling around the office like that.

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.

__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat
__ Hoarseness
__ Tender or swollen lymph nodes (glands), especiall…

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 

I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
