eaglelady5457 - May 20

I got this fibro about a year ago and now i am experiencing depression, touch to the skin hurts all the time, is depression part of it too and loss of so much energy, Please help me to understand this.

eaglelady, yes...depression can accompany fibro, unfortunately. the skin issue seems to be a constant with me. I have a stinging, tingling sensation across the left shoulder blade skin area all the time, i don't think i remember a time when it wasn't there. the loss of energy could be coming from a lack of deep restorative sleep. i know that for me to get a good night's sleep i have to take sleeping pills. right now, temazepam works for me. there's so much out there now as far as information that wasn't out there a few years ago. this board has a lot of good info to read too. i do empathise with you about your issues...they are hard to battle but don't give up. i like to say that i have fibro but it doesn't have me.

Oh my Karen Cee my meds are 900 a day and i thought that was bad. I am so tired of feeling so depressed and down all the time and hurting everyday i hope you and I can deal with this, i do not think there is a medicine out there that takes it all away. I have a exercise bike and that is helping me some but not as much as i would like, and like you the weather is a killer on my body all the time, hope you get feeling better soon. Take care

eaglelady, I hope you're feeling better soon too. It's almost a vicious cycle - pain can lead to depression, which can equate sleepless nights, then that cycles back around to more get the idea. One thing I have learned is to rest, even when I don't feel as bad. Trust me, when I do have days where I feel relatively good I tend to do too much. That makes the next days miserable for me. I've learned to do a little (cook, laundry, etc) and rest. Since I work full time I have to really pace myself too when I get home. Doing too much can bring on a fibro flare from Hades. Yes, weather is definitely a killer. Rest when you can, that's the biggest piece of advice I can give. Take care.

Thank you for your concerns like you i have to limit what i do per day and i overdue it most of the time, i can not do what i used to 20 years ago lol. I am so used to doing all for myself but i have no one else to help me do things around my apartment. I just do not like very much when some days i can do almost nothing at all due to the fibro and my doctor says i am almost maxed out in my med milligrams. i hope you too get to feeling better we all have our days of more energy and than the next day in severe pain.
