    Does anyone here have pain that comes and goes in the course
    of a day. I can start out with pain in both upper arms and
    then at some point one arm will feel better but the hand on
    that side hurts or one of my legs will hurt. Also I can start the day feeling dead tired after sleeping for 10 hrs.
    then all of sudden I have this sense of "hey I'm not tired"
    that lasts for about an hour or so then all of sudden I feel
    as though I must have been hit by a freight train because I am unbelievably tired and hurt all over. Worse than when I
    started the day. It is so frustrating to not be able to
    explain to family, friends and coworkers the consistantly
    inconsistant pattern of pain and fatigue.

    I go through this quite often. I will be at work and think wow I am feeling a bit better and in a very short time I feel like total crap again.
    It's very frustrating and hard to explain !

    I do that all the time think wow I feel pretty good then all of a sudden I feel like crap.

    I guess getting use to it is about the only way to handle it.

    I can be having a wonderful day and not even thinking about fibro because I feel so good, then suddenly I have a pain and I think, "well that's annoying, what is that all about?" Then I remember oh yeah, that's gonna happen, I have fibro. duh! I have found this interesting because some people say, well if you don't think about it, you will feel better. Well... I don't always think about it! Only when it bothers me! lol
