I'm having a tough few days. I think I am flaring up with the FM. I can tell when my arms feel generally weak and it feels like my arms, legs and hips start burning and feeling tight. Also between my shoulder blades have been aching so bad. When I came home from work today, I layed on the couch for nearly 2 1/2 hours, didn't make anything to eat, didn't want to move, just lay there. It took all my energy just to make a healthy salad. I am wondering about something. I really have been trying to clean up my diet, but really blew it since last Thursday. My mom had brought doughnuts home (she NEVER does that, hmmmm), and I just couldn't resist. I also had some pizza which I cut out of my diet about 2 months ago. I just can't believe that eating these foods have probably flared me up. I have been eating like crap for the last 5 days, and although when I eat healthy, I am still in pain, but it is much more tolerable. All I wanted was a good doughnut, LOL. My FM body is so sensitive to sugars, starches, and I know that, so it really is my fault. Since I did it already, it's back to eating bland foods for a while and see if this flare gets any better. Geeezzzzzz, just wanted some comfort food, but with me, I pay for it. Hugs, Chelz.
