the fibro continues

I know I should have updated sooner, but my doc appt was postponed. All in all things went well, however, and as per usual I let my mind get the best of me. She feels that the joint issues are all part of the fibro, and unless I start getting swelling or pain not associated with caring for Emma...then I'm just fine.

I think part of the issue is that before I was on Savella, I was in so much muscle pain, i didn't really notice the joint pain, and now that the muscle pain is greatly reduced, I feel more of the other fms symptoms.

Been having lots of trouble sleeping lately, and I'm feeling like my old friend fibromyalgia is settling in again after the reprieve of pregnancy. I guess that's just the way it is. Really trying to keep physically active, which is always hard when you're tired, but I know that the payoff is worth it.

I've noticed alot of touch sensitivity lately...does anyone else notice that. We have a super soft blanket on our bed, and I bought it because it was so comfy...but when my fibro is rearing it's ugly head...I can't bear to touch's too soft and it gives me the worst feeling ever.....weird huh

After I started taking Neurotin 3 times a day, the muscle pain diminished some but then I also could feel the joint pain. I'm now taking Celebrex once a day and I've been feeling pretty good the past two weeks. Keeping my fingers crossed! Hope you're able to find some relief.
