Arthritis and fibromyalgia


Hi Everyone.

Today the O/A and fibromyalgia have come heads on together…’s mega hard to cope with it at the moment and im feeling really low. Its not like me, I am normally a very positive person, but today its all to much and I’m in bed crying. As i said it is not like me but today is a bad one..Jan x

    Oh dear bed is probably good but is there anything you can treat yourself to to try and make thinsg better? Good film, book or maybe tea nad biscuiits?

    Hope you feel better soon.

    I'm curious. I only get OA aches and pains to curl up in bed with, but am I right in thinking Fibromyalgia is worse? Certainly I would expect both at the same time to be a bit nasty. At some point I take some other meds to calm the OA down but only to get past the worst of it.

    Hi @Jan1955

    I'm sorry you've had such an awful day, I hope you're feeling a bit better now? I think you need the biggest bar of chocolate you can find. Always works for me! I would also play some mindless computer game and bash some baddies!

    Love n hugs
