By the topic, you know I have fibro and have had GBS. I haven't had a flare in six months, which is awesome, but this one is kicking my butt! I see the rheumatologist later today to see if there's anything I can take since surgery. Tylenol & Flexaril do nothing and I refuse to live on Icy Hot, stinking all the time! What I'm wondering is...if you have fibro, how much did it improve with weight loss. I went without a flare for about six months. Surgery flared it bad, and now it is suddenly bad again. It's my mid back, bad aches. I thought it was a strain, but now I know it's not cuz I got to thinking about my flares before surgery and this feels just as bad, comparable to back labor during birth sometimes even. I've tried Flexaril, Tylenol, and icing as well as the chiropractor. Nothing is working. Hopefully the doc can help. Did your fibro go away or at least significantly improve post-op? How long did you go before you'd flare? I got a six month break. Any insight would be helpful. Thanks.
