    I have had fibromyalgia for aprox. 15 yrs. It's been managed relatively well. In June I had a very necessary total knee replacement. I am apparently having the mother of all flareups and feel like I've regressed 10 years in my fibromyalgia management and am back at square one. I also picked up a nasty virus post op. I'm doing the necessary rehab but, needless to say, it's very difficult since it's an effort just to shower in the morning. I'm taking one day at a time and guess things will slowly improve but wondered if anyone else has had this experience. Thanks
