i'm in the middle of a bad flare and i had a couple questions. i'm pretty new to FM, though i've read a lot about it there isn't anyone that i know in my town that has it. so if it's okay i'd like to ask some questions. how do you handle and deal with flares? do you use heat or cold to ease your pain? what medications have helped you in your day to day life? how do you cope with the fatigue and pain everyday? how do you stay positive and not sink into depression? that's all i can think of off the top of my head...please take the time to answer some of these, i would really appreciate it. thanks!
