just a question for everyone, as i havn't been really sick since getting FM (a little over 2 years). i've been hurting pretty bad for about a week now. it's been raining alot here, so i figured it was because of the pressure being up in the air. well, it turns out, i am sick with something, and i'm thinking it's the flu. yesterday, and into the night, i had the most intense body aches i have ever had. so much so, that i cried most of the evening away. it was AWFUL. i'm still sick, but i just feel beat up today, not the tortuous aching (although i'm afraid of how i'm gonna feel as the day progresses). for those w/ FM: do you hurt more when you're sick? i know, the last time i had the flu (a little before i got FM), i ached, but nothing like i did yesterday. i was seriously contemplating going to the ER, because i just couldn't take it. i ended up taking an extra Zanaflex to knock me out, so i wouldn't feel it. can anyone share there experiences with me? thanks.
