Fibro is really acting up

Hello everyone. My attitude hasnt been all that bad but my fibro is really acting up. Yesterday I went grocery shopping. I couldnt put it off anymore because we didnt have any food in the house. It was very painful to just get in and out of the car let alone the shopping itself. Everyone of my joints feel like they are on fire. I have been having bad chest pains as well. I was crying last night because everything hurt so bad. This is very unsual because i dont usually have pain unless the weather is bad or it is very cold outside. I dont know why it has been acting up . I hate going to the doctor for it because they never do anything about it. They just tell me that my insurance doesnt cover the fibro medicine that there isnt anything that they can do for me. I cant even write or type without being in pain. When I walk it hurts real bad. Sometimes I get shooting pain in the joints. I am going to try to get help from the doctor but i doubt it.

I went through my sister and my records for this house. It seems as if I am only 5 months behind. She is trying to mess me over alot of money. Plus she said that she could charge interest on the entire late amount every month. The mortgage says different. It says ony the monthly payment can be charged interest. She says we owe more than what we do. She has been argueing about it to me. I have had enough and I am going to call legal aide very soon. This is insane. She has got to stop. I just want this things over with and you would think that she would want it over with too. I am not leaving this house sit when i only owe about 5,000 or less on this. NOWAY!!! Not without a fight anyways.

Well I am going to go lay down for a bit. I am in so much pain. I hope everyone is doing well. Thank you for all your kind comments and advice. I have been reading everyone's journal but I have not been able to comment because it hurts to type. It took alot just to type in my journal. I hope everyone has a safe weekend.

Christine, so sorry to hear you're in pain.  One thing Christine~do you drink diet soda? When I was working in a medical clinic the docs were talking about a study that was done regarding diet soda & other diet foods. The stuff that makes them "diet" is a chemical and some people are allergic to it and don't realize it. They suggested to a couple of the nurses that had fibro to stop drinking & eating anything that had the word "diet on it. Within 2 weeks both of them felt like new people.  Pain was gone, joints were was amazing.  And if your joints got to keep moving...they say "motion is lotion."  In other words "moving" produces the stuff to keep our joints moving right.  I have arthritis in every joint but I keep humming along...
Have you "Googled" fibro to see which foods are bad & good for you?  Just a thought.  Take care...Linda in WA

You need to call the doctor and get the name of the company that makes the meds they will help you get it for free or cheapier .. get agressive if you have too

Christine I think there is an anti depressant which also helps fibro pain!  Ask your doctor about this, I cant remember what its called but there is one out there.  Since they cover your depression meds, this wouldnt be a problem as long as it was coded as an anti depressant.  I think it is called Cymbalta, but there are a couple of them out there.

One of my sisters has fibro, and she takes Lyrica, the one that was made for "restless leg syndrome."

Good for you finding the paperwork, and getting ready to FIGHT!

Hope some rest will ease your pain.

Hugs, Beth

I'm so sorry that your in pain dear friend. I hope your able to find some relief soon. Glad you found the paperwork to be able to stand up to your sister. Legal aid should be able to help you get the ball moving. (Hugs)Indigo

Glad that you find the papers Christine. That might be why she is acting that way because you only owe $5,000. She won't have any money coming in when it is paid off. Need to work as quickly as possible. Make copies of your receipts, don't give the original ones to anyone. Keeping you in my prayers to feel better soon. Hugs, Janie
