The Why Factor for Fibro Flares

Flares are something that each of us struggle with on a daily basis. We constantly ask the question, why today? Is there something special about today? Did I do something wrong yesterday? What could possibly be the reason for my pain?

Most of the time we have the answer, we are either over-worked, over-tired, over-stressed, or a combination of all three. If you live in a perfect world, you can chalk the day up to experience, move on, and never make the same mistake in your life again-- in a perfect world.

I don't live in a perfect world, as I'm sure, neither do any of you. And when our world is imperfect, or worse, crashes down around us, we Fibromites tend to find flares as part of our norm, rather than infrequent.

Most Fibromyalgia sufferers you talk to will tell you it took several doctors and years to get diagnosed. When this happens the patient gets discouraged and sometimes looses all hope. In the frustration, sometimes we Fibro sufferers loose faith in the fact that there are good doctors out there on our side.

One doctor, Bill H. McCarberg, MD of San Diego, CA is one of those good doctors. He presented at the recent Pain Meetings in Washington, DC. I will be posting a link to Doctor Bill McCarberg's video presentation on Twitter and Facebook (I can't link it here) so if you'd like to see it, follow me on there.

Stay fabulous!
Love and friendship,
