wishes for one pain free day please

All these acute migraines wear a person down.  I just want one migraine free day.  Just to relax and get my head together before the next one comes along.  It's a bad month and there were some different triggers that made it a bad month.  But bad months happen.  It just makes me realize, like several people have told me, that I really ought to call my neuro and give him an update.  Because it is not about the good, well manged pain days.  It is about the times where I get so many they cannot be well managed.  What happens if I get an even worse month?  What if that worse month leads to more bad months?  What happens is that I will get more stressed out.  More frustrated.  And more desperate to ensure I get to work.  Maybe if I mention it now, as it stands, with my neuro we can try something that will not effect my work but maybe help with managing these bad months.  Who knows?  And maybe he will not think the triptan side effects are anything to worry about or maybe if I am lucky he will recommend trying a different one.

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…
