Many people don’t realize this. Probably not even my husband, but even when my Ménière’s was in remission, I still had pain. The Fibromyalgia never entirely left.
The level varies from faint to I don’t want anything touching my skin. Lately, I am in the phase where I just my clothing on my skin hurts. Between that and the fatigue it’s been hard to get anything done. I know the abrupt weather change brought on this bought of fibromyalgia.
I actually prefer being in control of my flares. Like walking around Disneyland. However, being in better shape helped and I didn’t flare from that. It’s the little things. I, also, took breaks when needed and we made it an early day.
Muscle pain is one of the easiest types of pain to hide for me. So, people aren’t aware. I won’t have an vertigo attack due to fibromyalgia, so it’s not necessary to explain it to everyone like I do Ménière’s.
I guess what I am trying to say is just because someone doesn’t speak of something, it doesn’t mean they never had it.
Love, Peace and Light! Rita
