About Me

I have to manage my FM very carefully, I am a wife and mum of 3 kids, and I work full time. I have good days and bad. I love learning. This is my experience of Fibromyalgia, I'm not promoting any products, just sharing what helps me.

Weather and FM

I can remember my grandparents complaining that the weather exacerbated their ailments and can also remember dismissing the comments as moans and groans.

However, I posthumously apologize to them, now that I've reached the age where I completely understand what they meant and can truly 'feel' their pain. 

Not only do I 'feel the cold' more than I've ever done but my bones actually ache.

I suffer with myofascial pain in my jaw which triggers at any time but particularly when its really cold.

I also find the muscle pains throughout my body heighten when its cold.

So my shopping list for the weekend includes a snood and I'm wrapping up warm and snug as a bug!

Now all I need to do is stop the hot flushes! Life's so complicated :-) 

Stay well.
