Feel like hibernating!

FibroGal - December 5

I find it difficult to stay warm and I'm also chronically sleepy. The place I most want to be is nice and toasty warm in bed. Does anyone else experience this?

Mmmm, Hibernating sounds sooooo nice! My arms have been flaring up...bad...very painful! My energy has been ok...but this arm pain is wearing me down. Picking up a glass of water, turning a door knob, pumping hair product...debilitating pain.

I have a fireplace to cozy up next to with an extra soft blankie and my dogs by my's the best :) Your fibro friend, Sonja44

I so know how you feel; I'm constantly cold and really fight the fatigue. I am having b12 shots monthly to see if that helps and I have been going to a chiropractor that does seem to help some. It has definately helped the headaches. He suggested I take a product called CO-Q10; I'm trying it.

sonja44 I have been experiencing the arm pain alot lately. The other night I could have sworn I broke my wrist it hurt so bad; but it has gotten better.

I just get so tired of not feeling good and I hate to complain.

I went through a period recently with arm pain that lasted for several weeks. You're not alone. I also have annoying muscle weakness and twitches alot, too.

Thanks to you and fibromontana for sharing. It does help to know we're not alone.

I would love to hibernate as well!! In fact, I called in to work today. As it has gotten colder I have been having more problems, then came a cold snap, and I found I could hardly walk at all this morning, and I work retail, so I knew I could not be on my feet for 8+ hours!! I came back home after taking the kids to school and fell asleep on the couch, and took several pain pills today. They did not help at all! That is a first for a long time.

Keep us posted on how the CO-Q10 helps with the fibro, Fibromontana.

Thanks for the kind words of understanding and encouragement. Fibrogal hit it on the head with feeling like hibernating!

Tears came to my eyes as I read everyone's response's ... it snowed today here and I'm not doing well...I hate to complain too but this is a safe place to do just's difficult to keep up a brave front when a flare up is so bad...making you feel like curling up in a ball and just crying.
