I'm in fairly nasty flair right now, (muscle & joint pain *everywhere* at once, headaches, dizziness, buzzing, tingling and blah, blah, you know what it's like). The thing is, I get the aches, pains and tingling worse while at rest. If I sit down long enough, my whole body is one long achy, buzzing cramp. If I keep moving, doing something, it doesn't seem to 'set in' as easily. Only problem is that activity exacerbates the flair, and you're supposed to rest. (The expression 'between a rock and hard place' comes to mind!) Anybody else find that they just can't not do anything cos then the whole damn thing feels worse? Marcus (now really bored of having Fibro) PS -- Was having a candid chat to my rheumy yesterday and he admitted that a lot of patients present to the rheumy clinic with MS-type symptoms but no diagnostic findings. He told me they're all lumped into the fibro basket and sent on their way with some advice to rest and a packet of Elavil. He was amazed when I told him that Fibro doesn't just go away with time. Maybe he'll look at this site and learn something!!
