Fibro & Flu

I was surrounded by the flu bug this weekend, helping friends on Fri & Sat. 

Monday afternoon and yesterday, I was feeling... off. I spent yesterday at home feeling pretty awful.

The hardest thing with Fibro is that we can daily feel like we are fighting the flu {minus a couple things}, and it makes it truly hard to gauge whether it's really a Fibro flare-up or the actual flu.

Struggling to sit up straight
Pain extremely intense
IBS symptoms
Blinding headache

I am not sure, but I do think it was perhaps a milder case of the flu than what my friends had. It was still worth every second with them.

Yeah, that is a big thing with us fibromites..ya never know when it is the actual flu or fibro. And if it is the flu, then the fibro goes way out of whack!!! I hate this syndrome!!!

Feel better soon. :0)

Either way Rochelle, you don't feel well. :(

I hope you feel better tomorrow. Rest well, as it will help both. :)
