    Hi their. I replyed to your post on the tummy pain but you must not have seen it. So are you doing any better? I hope so as I know the pain sucks and their is nothing to help it go away. So how are thye children doing? mine are all doing very good for a change and I am feeling good just in pain as always. My ribs hurt but only if I bend the wrong way so that is good for a change and my tummy does not hurt at all right now and has been good for about a week or so. I no it won't last long though. I will take it while I can though. So are you addicted to e-bay? I just bought 320.00 worth of cloths for my little guy. I can't wait to get the cloths. they were all from one lady and it is all tommy and Gap so I got a good deal. well my little guy want's some grub so I best feed him. I will check in later. Your pal Shannon

    How are you doing? I am still in alot of distress. My ribs and waistline pain just won't go away. I am doing a barium enema on Thursday and I'm so scared. I know you have done it. Is it really bad??? I am in such a state of depression, and I can't seem to get out of it. I don't think I can handle this illness anymore. I have been having the worst pain and I need answers or I'm going to go crazy. I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better. I would do anything right about now for a few pain free days. How are the kids and hubby doing? Shannon, I must be going, as this pain is overwhelming. I'm going to turn in for the night. I just wanted to respond to your post. Thanks for being here for me and listening to my complaints. I'll check in tommorrow.

    Love,
    Tes

    Just me again. Just got back from my barium enema. Yuk!!! It hurt like hell. I just kept thinking of you...and man, how do men choose to be gay!.lol. I have been horrible rib and gas pain and this test did not help the matter. I wrote to you last night and hope to hear back from you. I could use someone to talk to.

    Love,

    HI sweetie...I am so sorry for your pain. That test is the worst test ever. I can not think of anything more horriable. I am sorry that you are in so much pain. I to am in alot as well. I have many day's that I wish I would not wake up but I do and thank God because my children need me. My ribs have been awful. They hurt so so bad as well as my waist line. I hope some day they find a miracle drug.
    The kids and hubby are all well. It is so damn cold right now and I no that does not help the pain at all.
    We are going to take the kids to Wisconsin DElls on March 9 and 10. I can't wait to get away. We are planning our trip to Canada. We are planning to go in May. I can not wait to meet you and the family.
    When will you know your results from your test?
    I hope everything is ok.
    I will always be here for you as I know you will be their for me as well.
    What is your e-bay user name? Mine is pokothecat. Well I will wait to hear back from you. Take care and gentle hugs

    Shannon, thanks for listening and trying to help. I do have alot of people that do listen, but they just don't understand and frankly, I'm just fed up with complaining. When I'm having bad days(like now) and people ask me whats wrong, I try not to say that I'm not feeling well. I hurt so much and people just don't understand. I myself, wish that when I go to bed, I won't wake up. But my kids are my life, and I am so determined to get better for them. They don't deserve a mom who is always in pain. They need a mom who will laugh all the time and give them 100%. When your waistline hurts, do you produce alot of gas? I have so much air when it gets really bad. And my ribs, well I think I have had enough. They burn so bad and almost feels like my muscles are twisting. My pain is below the breasts all the way down and sometimes radiates to the sides. Is this how yours feel? Are you still seeing a chiropactor? I am really considering seeing one. My brother-in-law will crack my back from time to time and I feel so good for days. Let me tell you how much my back cracks when he does this. I have read that bad aligment can cause constipation, rib pain in the front and major gas pains. I hope this is what's causing our pain. I always fear the worst. I am seeing a stomach specialist in 2 weeks. He will investigate further with more invasive tests to see if it could be my tummy, gallbladder etc. Have you had you gallbladder tested? I can't wait to meet you as well. Are you coming into Toronto when you come to Canada? I am so glad I found you here. I can't explain enough how much you have helped me. We are so much alike including our fm. It seems that the ribs and tummy are our biggest complaints. I do suffer from major fatigue as well, but I'd take that over pain any day. I would love to get away right now. Your trip to Florida is coming soon, right? I hope the kids and hubby are well. You mentioned that it is really cold there. It has been -30 here for over a week now and I believe the horrible pain is from that. Sorry for the long post, but I feel like I can talk to you about anything. Please keep in touch more often and I'll check in later. Another question for you.. Do you feel worse when you like down in bed? I am finding that when I lye down, the pain gets so much worse. Just curious if this bothers you as well.

    Your buddy,
    Tes

    It is so damn annoying when people do not understand you. They think because you look good you are just making it up. well I wish I could curse them with our pain for a few weeks and tell them they look fine.
    My chrio is gone untill May but another took his place for the time being and I was not liking her way's at all so I stopped going for a month and had to go back because i could barley move. So I went back and now she is out for a month because she had to have her gallbladder removed. So now my other chriopractor's brother took over and cracked me on Tuesday and I love him. He cracks the same way as his brother so I will see him untill his brother comes back. I think that once I have the normal adjusting I need I will be better. I hope at least.
    I have the pain just as you describe. I can not stand it. Do your shins ever hurt you? mine do right before I get my monthly pal.
    I also have very very sore painfull lumps in between my breast's. do you have those? mine only hurt if I mess with them.
    We are not going to go to Florida now. I will not fly but the hubby and kids will and he can't take two weeks off of work because I have to drive so him and the boy's are going on the 26th of this month and come back on the 30th. I asked them to bring me back some spoons and some ocean water.
    Well now that I wrote a book I will wait for your response

    Wow, I haven't talked to you this much in a long time. Before I forget, do you ever get yeast infections? I had one last month and I feel like another is coming on again. Could this be another fm symptom? My shins do hurt from time to time. More before my menstrual cycle. And for the boob pain...yes I do get that alot. That area was my biggest complaint for about 8 years along with the breathing problems. But as usual, ever test that I did came up negative. This lower rib pain has been a fairly new symptom....since July and I don't like it one bit.lol. I would rather have the chest and boob pain any day. And since my lower ribs started up, I have yet to have the chest pains. It is true I guess when they say fm affects different parts of the body sepeartely. So you're scared to fly? So am I. I'm near death when I get on a plane.lol. I hate it so much, but nothing compares to being on a beautiful island with sunshine. Is your husband taking all four boys? That will give you a break. So, what have you been upto lately? I would rather do nothing than lie in a hot bath. At least that takes the pain away for alittle while. I have 2 birthday parties to go to on Saturday and a wedding shower on Sunday. I don't know how I'm going to make it through it. And to top it all off, I think I have a yeast infection again. YEAH!! Our weekends are always so busy and I hate it. I love to get out, but when I feel like this, I hate being around people. Do you ever get depressed because of this dd? Lately, I have. I cry alot and pray that half of me comes back to normal. I don't know how much more I can take. When my older son sees me sad, he trys to rub my ribs and says.."now you're all better, right?". He is so cute. It saddens me alot when I can't do alot with them. My world revolves around them. You know what I mean. You never answered my question...if you feel more pain when you lie down? I think I might try sleeping upright tonight. I took a painkilller this past weekend with codiene in it and boy did it mess me up. I was constipated for 4 days. OUCH!! Sometimes I feel like giving up and take meds to control this. But I don't want to take that crap. I wish I could find a natural alternative. Sweetie, I must go now, becuase my kids are up from their naps and I have to go check on dinner. Please right back. I will check in later.

    Take care,
    Tes

    Yes it seems to hurt me more when I lie down espically my tummy and ribs.
    So you have a busy weekend? Not I for once. I am going to relax all weekend.
    The hubby and the 2 older ones are going to go. I can't get lucky enough to have no children for a few day's. Just getting rid of the hubby and older ones for a a few day's is good though.
    I can order pizza and grab mcdonalds when they are gone.
    I find that I to have been getting very sad alot. I am 29 and feel so much older then I look and feel.
    It is so nice to chat with you again. It sure has been along time since we have done this. My older son is always rubbing my back and my 3 year old terror always rubs it to. In the morning when I wake up he asks if he can rub my back. He does it so lite that you can't tell but none the less it is sweet.
    Well I am going to go and take a bath and check on dinner. I will check in after

    It's about 8:45pm here and I am just starting to unwind alittle. I took a shower and cleaned up the kitchen. My husband has taken the boys up to sleep. I think I'm going to turn in early tonight as well. I didn't get much sleep last night. I was constantly going to the washroom...I did the bowel cleanse for my barium enema. That part was horror all on it's own. My ribs are so achy just below my breasts. It almost feels like it's my stomach. Do you ever get the burning, achy feeling in the middle? I guess inbetween the lower ribs. I don't understand this dd. My stomach often hurts so bad I think that it has to be a horrible illness. How much pain can muscles give? I'm going to have some warm milk and see if it helps some. If I don't get a good nights sleep, my pain is constant all day long. Around christmas time I started feeling so good. I had pain, but not enough to pay notice to. I felt good well into the new year and then it started all over again about a week ago. Do you ever get times were you feel good and then it starts again. I get so happy when this happens and wish it would last longer. Does your right side ever bug you, or is it just your left? Also, when your waistline hurts, does it affect you all the way across? Are you still taking magnesium supplements? I think I have asked you enough questions.lol. I am going to make my warm milk, and I'll be back in alittle bit.

    Love,
    Tes

    Do you know that you should not drink milk. when you have this DD milk is bad for you. It causes inflamation. I had to give it up and I loved milk and ice cream.
    I to can not stand the tummy and rib pain. It is so damn awfull and painfull. Do you get your pain more in your upper? I get mine more in my lower and yes it is on both side's. More on the left but on the right as well. I still take all my herbs and now I added a B complex as well.
    How are you feeling today? I am sore as always and tired.
    I bought the book from that Devin Starlanyl and it is very intresting. It is about fibro and chronic Myofascial Pain syndrome. You should get it.
    Well I am going to feed the kids lunch. I will check back in soon

    Nice to hear back from you. I am still in pain today. I am also very emotional and upset. When I am in a flare this long, I get frustrated and emotional alot easier. I guess anyone would react this way if they were always in pain. I never new that milk isn't good for this dd. When I drink my milk warm, I find it actually relaxes me. Do you not eat dairy at all, or is it just milk? My pain radiates from my upper abnomen to my lower area. If my waistline is hurting, my upper ribs don't hurt as much. Today I have alot of burning and tightness in my diagphram area(just below the breasts). Your hubby and boys must be getting excited about their trip. Can they take me along.lol. My boys just went down for a nap, so I have some time to myself. All the housework and laundry are done for the week. Monday it starts all over again. YEAH!!! Has your son recovered from his surgery? What are your plans for the weekend? This cold front we're having is supposed to pass soon, and I really hope I notice a change in the way I feel. I'm just glad that my barium enema test is over. I was so stressed over it. Do you ever get a dry mouth? Lately, no matter what I drink, my mouth is constantly dry. I'm going to grab something to munch on and I'll be back.

    Talk to you soon,
    Tes

    Yes I get the dry mouth often. I have thyroid disease so I will always have that. I eat cheese but regreat it the next day as my tummy will cramp so bad.
    when will you know the results to your test?
    Seth is doing very very good. He hashealed very very nicley and pretty fast to.
    They are so excited to go. I am to though. They leave in two morw day's. YEH
    I cleaned my house all day. It is so clean that I took a picture and I am going to hang it on the fridge so that I can remind the kids what a clean house look's like.haha
    I am so damn tired today but when you clean that is what happens.
    I am going to go to my mom's house Tomorrow and take her for lunch and buy her a glider for her birthday. I am looking foward to it because I will be getting away for a bit.
    well I am going to go and slap some grub up for supper. I will talk with you in a few. Hey what is your e-mail? I will send you a picture of the hubby and I

    Hi Shannon. It's Monday afternoon and I'm glad. This weekend was way to busy. Glad it's over. I read you post today and I'm so sorry that your in so much pain. So am I. Does your ribs hurt when your sitting still, or is it only when you move? Mine hurt less when I'm moving around and more when I'm sitting. Don't know if it could be muscular. I wish I could take all our pain away! Did your husband and the boys leave for Florida? Them being away could be good for you. I'm going to start dinner and I will definetly check in later. Love ya, Tes.

    Yes they did leave for Florida....I think the quiet time qill do me good. My ribs hurt pretty much whatever I do. I am so sick of this crap. sometimes I wish they would find something so hen they could fix it. But they never do. I am really tired today and I am going to go and sit in the hot tub and let the jets pound on my neck and ribs for awhile but I will be back in a bit. I have to feed the little one's quick as well...

    Sorry I'm posting late. I was running errands this evening and then I got the kids ready for bed. I just took a warm shower and hopefully I will fall asleep faster than usual. I think this really cold weather has taken a toll on our ribs this winter. The temperature should be getting above 0 next week and I hope it makes us feel much better. Have you ever tried to rub an arthritic cream on your lower ribs? It might help alittle. I also heard that hot pressure from a shower or jacuzzi can aggrivate the ribs more. A bath is probably more soothing. I'm trying to help as much as possible. Any advice is worth trying. Have the little ones been good for you? Mine have been really good lately. It certainly helps with easing my pain. My hubby and I are thinking of going away in May. We think we would like to go back to Cuba. It will be just the two of us and later in the summer we plan to rent a cottage for 4 days with the kids. I just hope I feel better when the warmer weather comes. I hate doing anything when I'm in pain. Have you ever had a yeast infection before? I seem to be getting them alot these past couple of months. Could it be a fibro symptom? I am so sick of this as well. Instead of getting better, I seem to be getting worse and worse each year. How was your lunch with you mom? Shannon, I pray that you have a good night and I will be back tommorrow.

    Love ya,

    HI tes I am sorry for not getting back to you sooner but I am without a pc for a bit as mine crashed so I am at the library using theirs. I am in a lot of pain yet and I have tried that cream but it does not seem to work all that well for me. I have been going in the hot tub alot as that seems to be my only relief. The hubby and boy's came back so I was happy and they had a really good time so I was happy and they brought me back some stuff. The only thing they did not give me was their tan. lol Well I have to cut this short but I will check in tomorrow.Love, Shannon

    How are you this evening? I hope your pc is up and running soon. I am starting to get into a bad flare again. I was in little pain for 3 days and I have been feeling worse all day. My lower ribs are so sore and I have tons of gas again. That pain has to be the worst. It feels like everything is twisting inside. Do you ever get that feeling? I think I'm going to start dieting again. I haven't really gained any wait, but for some reason I feel better when I watch what I eat. I hope relief is somewhere in the near future. My hubby and I are really considering going away in May, but I don't think I want to go if I'm still feeling this bad. I'll just be miserable....and I don't want to spend thousands of dollars for nothing. So, you're still in pain? Has this been your worst flare up ever? My back is totally shot. Can costochondritis affect the ribs in the back? I was hoping 2003 would be a better year, as far as my health is concerned. I'm glad to hear that your hubby and boys had a good and safe trip. At least you can have some help again. I'm sorry to hear that the cream didn't help much. I find that it helps sometimes, not always. Do you ever feel like taking meds, so you don't have to feel like this? I do. I hope we start to feel better soon, and when you can, please write back.

    Love,
    Tes
