Worst FMS flare of my life...

Dear Sisters,

I am sorry that I haven't been around much lately. It is a long story that started with the birth of my best friends baby this past Wednesday. I thought that I had dealt with the 'no baby' issue...but I guess that I haven't. This birth sent me into emotional h*ll...but I got through it, and feel better for it-emotionally. I didn't let the new mother/father see any of it....I thank God for that.

I'm guessing that all of those emotions were the trigger for this FMS flare. It was so bad. It started on Friday....I fell asleep at approx 5pm, and was unable to get out of bed until yesterday afternoon. I swear, it felt as if my joints (waist down) weighed a thousand pounds. At times, I could not move from the waist down...at times I was numb, then the pain would shoot down my legs like rockets. I was also experiencing very bad Endo pain...I suppose the stress also brought this on. I felt close to death...it was truly scary. My dh worked all weekend, and was partially aware of how sick I was (but not the total extent of it, or he would not have gone to work/taken me to the hospital). I couldn't tell him...I was having trouble verbalizing how bad I was feeling. Very confused etc. I just stayed in bed...did not eat, and had little sips of water when I thought of it.

Like a miracle these symptoms slowly went away last night. I stayed in my pj's and watched some TV. I am happy to say that today I am feeling much more like my self (still have the daily pain, but nothing like the weekend). In hindsight, I know I should have gone to the ER...but at the time it just didn't seem possible. I simply could not get out of bed...

I am seeing my Neuro doc next week, and will explain in great detail what happened. I also told dh (when I was able to explain it to him) and he was horrified, and made me promise that if it ever happened again, I would have to reach him somehow (he works the night shift 12-16 hour shifts), so he could take me to the hospital...or that I should just call 911.

I guess I'm just asking for hugs. I am going to rest right now...as I still feel weak...but nothing like I did before. I know in my heart that all of this was a really bad FMS flare...it was just so much worse then what I'm used to. I pray that this is not a sign of things to come....

Thanks for listening dear sisters. Even though I haven't been posting much, I had been reading your threads today, and will keep you all in my prayers....

Oh my Jude!!!!

and big 's sweetie.... I so wish I could do more than send cyber ones.

What a scarey thing to go thru and deal with....I wish you could have had one of us there to hold your hand dear, You know we would have.

I am so sorry you were in such pain. I know little of FMS but am learning as I've started to do a lot of research myself. I cannot begin to fathom that kind of pain you describe and can only let you know how much I care...

sending massive 's again honey...

Many hugs

Dear Judester,
I'm so sorry you are going through so much. It sounds like so many emotional things came together and just took their toll on you. I'm glad you are starting to feel a little better. We both need to focus on miracles. I am sending healing thoughts your way.
Love, Light, Blessings

I'm sending the biggest, gentlest s that I can find. I am so very sorry my dear friend. I do know how you feel I was pretty close to the ER myself last week. It makes you wonder why some days are so much worse than others. I do wish I had the answers for us my friend.

I'm glad that you're doing a bit better. If you need a shoulder to lean on I'm only an email away sweetie.

May I ask?

May I ask, is FMA fibromyalgia?

I am so sorry to hear what you went through. Sounds like several things compounded at once.

Please take care,
Jen
