Have a doc apt tomorrow.

Have a doc apt tomorrow. For refills. However I will have to discuss what that multidisciplinary clinic info sent her and if she agrees going on the long acting tramadol.

I also have to mention this nerve pain issue I have been having. First was the one that happened up my arm, I assumed due to putting my nerve damaged hand in hot water. The second bout was months later and triggered by a cold and migraine was all over my back, my elbow on the left, my arm on the right, and a part of each thigh. It was horrible pain I needed my tramacet to just barely manage. Then recently it occurred again in my lower back on the right side and has not gone away... I wonder if that has to do with the back pain though.

It is impossible to know if this pain type is caused by the FM or the migraines. Or something else. So I really had better bring it up.

I will also say I have started the exercise that has been recommended. It is surprisingly a painful start. I have a lot of pain in my hips, knees and feet lately so it makes anything rather a painful venture. But I will keep on keeping on. Like a slow torture device. Hoping it improves slowly so I can increase the amounts and get back to where I was before the back pain incident. Unfortunately I am now getting back pain again when I am sleeping... I hope that is not a bad sign. But I have my last back MRI also coming up soon, if there is anything to see I sure they will find it on that. If not, then I will assume the pain and symptoms are FM related somehow.

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…
