Moves around in the same day

Have you ever questioned yourself and your pain due to the fact that you might feel good when you get up but not long after you start hurting, this time you hurt in the shoulders. "Get out of here, Fibro" you say. The pain gradually subsides but then after lunch you starting hurting in the hip area, now you question yourself about your pain. Your self talk may not be nice. How can it move around in the same day?

Fibromyalgia affects all 4 quadrants of the body. It can and does move around in the same day. You are not imagining it, you are living it. There are 18 area's on your body that has tender points.

Watch your self talk... instead of lashing out at yourself, try accepting the pain and thinking instead "What did I do that may have triggered it? What can I do to help myself? (sit and have a pity party or take medication or do some easy stretching or get you mind busy on something else).

Self talk can be an asset or it can be damaging. Would you talk to a loved one or friend like you talk to yourself sometimes? Of course not. Be nice to you!
