I have had fibro for 2 or 3 years now, but was only diagnosed properly just before christmas. I have all the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and was originaly diag with that, but my doctor said i was in too much pain for it to be CFS. I have all the Hot Spots that they use to determine if its FM, but i also have extra ones! Is it normal to feel the pain throughout your whole body? Im having a flare up at the moment, and just want to cry. Im so tired, but cant get comfy in bed, so not sleeping well. My hubby is brill, but last night i felt so ill that i had to miss ( for the first time ever) my sons parents evening at his school, so on top of feeling so poorly, i now feel like the worst mum ever. My husband went on his own. I have just managed to take the kids to school, and its freezing out. Now my legs ache from top to bottom! I wish i could drive! This flare up is now in its 4th day. I cant think what i did to bring it on. I guess christmas was stressful, i also suffer from IBS. I am finding it increasingly hard to do the school runs, i have to do 4 trips which add up to 90 minutes walking a day. The pain and dizziness are worse then too. My friends in the school playground have offered to take the kids to school for me, but i feel so guilty saying yes, like im letting my kids down by not taking them myself. Sorry to be such a complainer! I just need someone who knows what its like, to talk to.
