Pain is a part of everyday life when you have Fibromyalgia and the type of pain Fibromyalgia causes (nerve and muscle) can change and move around in your body from place to place making it impossible to have any lasting certainty about being able to perform certain tasks or of being able to take part in certain activities. The painful cycle of Fibromyalgia can be exhausting, both, physically and emotionally.
Furthermore, others often seem to think that if you don't look ill you aren't. If you have Fibromyalgia you've probably been accused, at least once, of coming up with excuses to get out of doing something simply because you don't look as bad as you say you feel. Frustrating, I know.
Trying not to over-do or to exercise when you have Fibromyalgia can be near impossible to maneuver since there are no real set boundaries with this syndrome. What causes a painful flare-up this time may not the next and vice versa.
When you have Fibromyalgia you may also suffer from the following common conditions as well as muscular/skeletal aches and pains.
Nearly everyone living with Fibromyalgia is deficient in the mineral Magnesium. So, start there. Magnesium needs to be taken with at least half as much Calcium, bu tnot at the same time. Take Calcium in the morning and Magnesium at night (Magnesium calms muscles and helps you to sleep better).
