I am often frustrated by my inability to do as much as I want to do. My heart is in it but fibromyalgia says otherwise.
Over the years I have adopted a few tricks that have really helped me to combat some of the most debilitating symptoms.
1. Low Energy: A simple shower can make me feel exhausted so I generally take them at night. I often skip the hair washing and save it for the morning. This cuts back on my morning routine and helps me feel a little less fatigued in the morning.
2. Leg Pain: Applied heat really seems to help my leg pain. I really like microwaveable rice packs because there is a little weight to them. Sometimes I’ll heat a blanket in the dryer which works well for me as long as I am careful not to overheat my body and create a separate issue.
