    I have not been here in awhile except to read as i have been doing pretty fair. I have been taking Ambrotose & it has helped me a lot but low & behold nothing is forever.

    As we all know some of us gain weight with the FM & i am no exception so i have been trying to each better & exercise daily. Got an exercise ball for my BD I just love it. Also been trying to do other exercises as well & yep you guessed it I have over done it & yesterday ^& today the flare up is a mess. Guess it could be worse but it was so much better when the pain & fatigue was not as bad. It never goes away 100% but it was tolerable(SP)

    Just needed to vent. I am sure all will be better soon. I actually had to get my ultram refilled for the first time in several months. Of course maybe some of it is the weather. We have finally had some rain & the pollen is a mess.

    Thanks for listening. Hope all has a good day.

    As I'm sure you realize now, you really have to go slowly when you start exercising or you will probably have a flare-up. I read an article that said you should start out at five minutes and work up from there. I know it's hard to stop after five minutes (we all have a tendency to overdue), but it's the best way to ease back into exercising. I've never used an exercise ball, but I'm sure it's good exercise.

    Weather can definitely be a killer. I really hate the rainy, damp days. Really makes me ache.

    Hope you're doing better soon.

    Lea Ann:
    Since you have been doing so well, this might just be a temporary setback that some rest and Ultram will take care.
    I hope so. Feel better soon!

    jUST tried to write flares three times and gave up.(LOL)

    I hate flares I hate them. Period.


    Sorry you are flaring. I too wasstaring to feel greta then wham, back down the slope today.


    Be careful exercising too much. I did pilates class that set me off for weeks. I try and walk 2 miles a day and do stretching.

    I'm hoping this is just a temporary thing for you and soon you'll be back to having less pain and fatigue.

    Hang in there
