My Dr. says if I am tired, sleep. Don't feel guilty about it. Naps are under rated. Try to work in some exercise, even if it is a walk , swimming or stretching. Be careful not to over do it though! Anxiety and panic attacks can happen with fibro. There are medications to help with this, ask your Dr.

I'm a stay at home mom. My kids are in school full time, but I get up in the morning, feeling exhausted of course, get them to school, do my chores, and never take a nap. I would feel too guilty. I used to walk 5 miles a day 3 years ago, lost 40 lbs. and felt good. I try to stay busy all day, to distract myself from the pain. I keep telling myself that I should start walking again(put the 40 lbs back on over the past year), but I just can't get myself to do it. As for panic attacks, I wound up in the hospital 5 years ago, thinking I was having a heart attack. All I was told was to stay away from caffeine, but that's the only thing that keeps me functioning. 1 1/2 years ago, I started having really bad anxiety and extreme mood swings, dr thought I was starting menopause, but all hormone tests were normal. Went to a psychiatrist and was put on lexapro for depression, and clonipan for anxiety, which I only take at night to help me sleep. I still have days of very bad depression, and I found from reading all the posts, that it's a common thing with fibro. Please tell your dr about the anxiety, it is a very disabling feeling, and the pain makes it even worse. Hope you feel better.
