    Hi Jordane

    Sorry to hear about your flare.
    Hard to say whats the worst because just when I think Ive had it and no way can this pain get worse IT DOES!

    Right now mine length is 6months and still going. Weather will play a big facter in mine. Now cant seem to get over the sore throat,swollen glands,hot-cold etc.

    hope you feel better soon

    the 1month i was taking cymbalta "flared" me up to full blown CFS until today 1 year later. i went to the doctor's complaining of disabling fatigue and leave with cymbalta and all the symptoms of full blown CFS one month later that never went away. I tried telling the doctor that it wasn't all in my mind, but he didn't believe me. So look at me now dr huang.

    Hello Jordane,
    Sorry you are in such a flare. I pray for things to let up for you ....

    mine 4 months..... and when it finally let up.. I cought myself thinking . was it real or just in my head.. I know its real but wow . what a Diff..
    I always am doing the hot cold thing . that never seems to let up..
    and the days that I;m not in a flare seem far a few.
    I know I push myself to far and that does not help.. I am trying to learn my limits still and as you know they change all the time. I don;t really get anything done after work . so really its just hard. and I prob should not be working .. but don;t have much choice right now.

    Just remember your not alone. . Sof huggles. .. I hope it lets up even if just a little .

    Spirit., :)

    Some Dr's just don't get it!!!! Why would we *want* to feel so bad!!!!!

    I tried the Cymbalta...it did nothing for me...but didn't help either.

    Bless you!

    You know I have come to the conclusion that this DD is just one big flare..if I get to feeling a little better...feel I have a reprieve for a bit...bang...it is there all over again, so maybe the *better times* is the flare!!

    I have been in bed 3 wks this time... so far ... it feels never ending...and a lot of it isn't!!!

    Here beside you hun in understanding!!! Thanks for the huggles!!!

    Take Care!!

    Hello Jordane,

    I hope today is a little better.. I know what you mean honey .. never ending with this DD

    it truly wears on you , It seems harder and harder to tell if the flare ever stops anymore. I feel your pain ... and pray it lets up . :)

    I wanted so much to call out of work today .. I hurt all over . and well its geting me down to say the least. I'm sure you understand ..

    I have been looking for little things in my life latley . the butterfly . the lizard in my garden. the sunrise. all these things seem to give me streanth.. funny I know . But I figure thats God Saying " hang in there honey " I love you " .. sorry I'm crying now..

    I know the change in weather has a lot to do with this Flare, its geting pretty hot here in Phoenix AZ.. I don;t do well in the heat..

    Jordane, hang in there honey .. and Rest as much as you can.. please don;t worry about the little things.. or the things we can;t change. know you are not alone and there are people that do understand just what you are going through.. you are loved .

    Soft Huggles my dear... keep in touch . :)
