Pain Flare Up

I’ve spent the past two weeks dealing with a full on pain flare up.

I’m talking 5/10 pain constant for about two weeks.

I actually think I have fibromyalgia. I have an appointment with a rheumatologist in a couple of weeks. I hope I can get at least some answer. This is brutal and I don’t want to have to rely on marijuana (CBD and otherwise) just to make it through the day. Partly cause it’s expensive, but it’s also against my company’s policy and I don’t want to worry about getting in trouble for dosing at work so I’ve been going without.

Anyway, a quote that stuck with me:

“If you are a friend or relative of a Fibromyalgia sufferer, please consider this: In moderate to severe cases, FMS will cause fatigue from sleep deprivation and sympathetic stimulation on a level totally unknown to the average person. A famous radio host once said, “All men are wimps if they don’t get the proper rest”. Fibromyalgia sufferers go way beyond this.”
