    Hi All,

    Was wondering how ill we all are?

    If 10 was bed ridden doing next to nothing all day, just thinking about how ill you feel.

    AND

    1 was living a life with little symptoms.
    Where are you on that scale?

    Thought it may be interesting to know if where you been at your worst and to what you been at your best.

    I will start... At present 9, at best 3.

    I've been to the edge (10) and at the moment I would say I am hovering around a 6. Though on and off through the years Ihave hit about a 2 ~ though not for very long.

    Mostly at 4, when at my worst can be beyond 10. Somewhere around 14!

    At my worst I've been a 9.
    At present I'm probably a 7.
    At my best I've been about a 3.

    On your scale, I would have to say I am about a 9 most of the time, best is about a 7.

    Istarted at about a 3 then progressed. Now I am luck to get 1 good day 8 to 10. Lately I have days a plus 10 feeling like I belong in a hospital. This is after much treatment of vit.,herbs,atnibiotics,accupunsture,P.T.,numerous studies and long term treatment lots of $$$$$. Pretty discouraging. Sometimes I can get to 2 to 3 under alot of care, but as soon as it is completed I slip back almost in worse flare. I guess sort of like yo yo dietting, Get`s quite exhausting trying to get well!!!!! Forgot besides for a nice trip I could have taken on the cost....

    Inga are you there?[This Message was Edited on 03/24/2003]

    6. Very rare. At worst (daily basis anywhere from 7-9 depending on the time of the day and what type of activity takes place).

    Right now I am at an 8. I kind of feel like going to bed even though I just got up an hour ago. I am so dizzy and exhausted. I finally got the pain somewhat under control a little while ago. My legs have started being very weak and shaky a few days ago. It makes it so hard to get out of bed. I haven't had under a 5 in over a week. Yikes!!

    I'm at a 10 and have never been better than an 8 since this whole thing began. That's only my opinion, of course. And I also feel as tho I'm in the twilight zone altho you didn't ask logistics.

    I love this message board.

    At my worst I am sadly a 10 (there right now ... have a cold and am in a flare) and my best a 5 or 6. Uugh!!! I cannot remember a time I had pain less than 6 and could do things like I used to.

    Average day is about 4 or 5 (never without pain). I have had a few episodes where the pain "peaked", so maybe worse case scenerio 9? I think it all depends on our perception of pain.

    Really is tough to answer this.Everyones idea of a 10 could be different. But OK,using this scale....I'd say mostly I'm a 8-9,a really good day would be 5. I think its been a few yrs since I've felt lower than a 5.(this DD sux don't it??)
    Can the next poll be"how many times have you wanted to choke someone that does'nt understand Fibro/CF?" jk....sorta~
    I'm just trying to make light of the ugly situation were in!
    Take care~
