More fibro pain with virus?
4 Replies
Gabbie - January 18

Last few days I was down with a really nasty virus and by the second day I could barely move. Spent almost 4 days in bed, couldn't really "handle" food and every inch of my entire body hurt with excruciating pain. Although I try to stay upbeat even on my worst pain days, this was unbearable. I'm wondering if the horrible pain (thank goodness it has subsided) was from not being able to move around much or can a virus or flu trigger worse fibro symptoms?

Are you sure you had a virus. I sometimes feel like I am coming down with the flu and will be completely zonked out by it for several days or more, but it never actually becomes the "flu". I finally decided it was just a flare up. I always get this feeling after the christmas holidays which always stress me out.

Yes, it was definately a virus. I'll spare the details, but if I wasn't in bed, I was in the, um, bathroom. I've had the flu and other colds, but never like this, that is why I was wondering if it's worse when you have fibro or if it makes the fibro symptoms worse.

I have always found that when I get sick with anything, my fibro symptoms get much worse.

I agree with msrsk624.
