I had a total breakdown today. The pain from my fibro was awful, I felt so low for being st the doctors for pain relief again, I felt rubbish as a wife, mother, friend, sister, daughter... a burden to everyone... I felt completely drained. I got over it, Chris was with me we got my prescription, had a wander round town and came home. I'm in my dressing gown, under a blanket watching films and playing on Snapchat. I'm ok I know I'm doing my best and I'm proud of what I've achieved. Sometimes though when I think about everything Chris has to put up with, what my kids have been through and how much they worry about me, and the thought of dealing with this for the rest of my life battling my own body every day wondering when it's going to strike, whether I'm going to make it through the day, whether I'm going to wake up in pain in the middle of the night... It's overwhelming. I want to help others like me somehow because when you have all this pain and yet nothing shows up in any tests you can feel like you are going crazy. You are not crazy, and you are not alone. It may not get easier or better but you can learn to live with it. 🙁😢😴🤒🦋💊🛌 #mentalhealth#fibromyalgia#chronicillness#badday#emotional#chronicpain#survival#depression
From Lisa :-) "I have been taking these since July 17 ( 5 to 10 drops twice a day) I started July 17 and am in LOVE with them. I love the peppermint flavoured ones. We do offer the original flavour as well ( has a nice earthy taste to it)
Since I started taking them my anxiety level has dropped. You see, I suffer from GAD ( generalized anxiety disorder) and use to suffer from severe panic attacks 2~3 times a week. Since starting these, I have had ONE MINOR one!. My RA hasn't flammed up once and neither has my IBS.. These drops are a miracle for me and so many others out there!. The testimonials I post are of real customers...This product is LIFE changing and will essentially help you with so many ailments!..So if you are suffering? Why let the suffering take over your life when there is something that can help you!??? Oh also!. I was talking to my mother in law yesterday and the arthritis in her shoulder and neck is GONE! She also said that her social anxiety has improved!...It makes me so happy that I was able to help her and so many other people in the short time I have been with this amazing company!... What are you waiting for?"

What are Biopuncture Injections?
Biopuncture injections are a combination of homeopathic and medical agents that are injected into specific trigger points in the muscles of the neck, shoulders and back area, to relieve inflammation, pain and discomfort.
In this procedure, we use very fine acupuncture needles to administer the effective agents to the exact position needed to start addressing the inflammation in the muscle.
Biopuncture is one of the safest treatments available to assist in the treatment of localized inflammation, which is associated with conditions such as fibromyalgia, chronic pain syndromes, muscle spasms, chronic headaches and migraines.
The ingredients of biopuncture act locally and have almost no systemic absorption.
Biopuncture addresses the origin of the inflammation, as opposed to just treating the symptoms.

The suddenly hotter temps these last few days have really triggered my fibromyalgia and hindered my running. Everything about me desperately needs Autumn to dance into full swing.

Post lyrica update. It's been about a week and a half-two weeks with no lyrica. My ring stopped fitting with all the weight gain and my whole body swelled up from gabapentin and lyrica. My fingers were FAT, like I couldn't get my ring passed the first knuckle. I now can get it passed the second, just waiting on some of that bottom finger chub to come off. Lol. That's wild. Also, I noticed my wrists and forearms are thinning out. Only 2 weeks with no lyrica. We'll see if this changes things. If I'm able to lose weight and get my health back on track, thatd be a great start. I know losing weight won't rid my pain because I was running, working out and 110 pounds lighter when everything got worse, but I'm hoping that some of the problems that came with the weight gain will disappear. I'm still waiting to hear back from my doctor about a new med. My stomach pain has been shitty. Fibro pain is almost always there. Still having really bad sweats more often than not, but I'll take it. My brain feels better off the lyrica. I still have fibro fog, but it's not nearly as bad as it was. Happy about that. #lyricaistoxic#getoutofmysystem#fibromyalgia#stomachpain#chronicpain#crps#myringalmostfitsagain#fight#fibrofog#fibrocausestoomuchotherbullshit

5 Strengthening Exercises for Lower Back Pain
4. Piriformis Seated Stretch
This stretch is designed to help lengthen the piriformis muscle over time. This muscle is often the source of sciatica, or radiating leg pain. Sitting with a straight back, cross your left leg over your right leg placing your foot next to your thigh and tuck your right leg in towards your buttocks. Place your right arm on your leg as pictured and slowly ease into a stretch. Be sure to keep your back straight and chest lifted. Hold for 20 seconds and alternative sides, three times. 👊😊
Certainly not one of my most flattering pics but hey I'm at the gym, who gives a crap what I look like as long as I am getting the job done.
In the past year, My fibro has caused me to gain 35-40lbs. A very common number with most sufferers. Needless to say this has made my self esteem plummet. All my weight goes to my stomach, which I made a post about earlier, def good to check out! But the weight never goes to my butt or any place actually cool. I almost fell into old habits of not eating, bc the weight just kept going up no matter what healthy foods I ate or what caloric intake I had. I was in the gym 6-7 days a week prior to being ill. I was in the best shape of my life. Yet the constant pain & exhaustion wore on me, and slowly I went from everyday to no days. All of my energy was focused on just trying to keep my job. I've been on tons of different medications: cymbalta, pristiq, lyrica, gabapentin, meloxicam. None of them worked, and I felt like all of them contributed to weight gain.
Couldn't we have awesome side effects like "shrinks your pores" or "causes reverse aging"? Nope!
Even though I joke, it's a little thing I do when I really am serious about something. Everyone can look at me and say, "you look beautiful, your not fat, your so thin." or something similar along those lines but your not with me when I am bare, without clothes to hide behind, when it's just me & me, looking in the mirror. My body holds a deep story & a lot of pain, both literally & figuratively. So personally, this has been one of the more awful side effects. 🔽
Day 2 of the 30 day miracle morning challenge. I struggled to get myself together this morning and did a lot of the routine lying down! I even did my exercise in bed by doing some gentle movements to wake up the body. Again I missed writing in my journal but I did this in my lunch break which was nice. I'm chalking this up as a success as I adapted the routine based on how I felt so that it could still be done.

Started off my birthday celebrations early with @sarahbroadfield1 🎉🎊 We went to a really cute authentic Italian restaurant in Birmingham which did yummy gluten free pasta 😍❤️ Today I'm resting up because tomorrow I'm going for a meal with some of my friends for my birthday 🙋🏼💁🏼 I'm eagerly anticipating lots of test results from Breakspear - on Wednesday I had blood taken for general Haemotology & Biochemistry tests, tests to measure my lithium levels since the dose I'm on was increased, tests to see if there are still any toxins attached to my DNA & tests to see if there are any toxins blocking my mitochondria after the detox programme I did in August! Fingers crossed the results will all be positive news 😊
Un super article et témoignage sur la fibromyalgie est disponible chez L'OBS ! 👌

So what is that? ⬆️ If you are a Mom, or thinking about becoming a Mom, keep reading.
Let's talk about Diastasis Recti. After pregnancy, Diastasis Recti is a separation in the abdominal muscles. Thinning of the tissue that connects the two sides of the rectus abdominis. When this tissue thins, it gravitates away from each other which causes your midsection to bulge on through as your two abdominal halves split apart. Think of your abs being held together by a zipper. When you have Diastasis Recti, the zipper splits in the middle & the two sides are separated. If you have been pregnant & you have a pooch; or your abdominal muscles seem to only get worse from the traditional ab workouts such as crunches, sit ups or planks; If your belly button became an outie when it was always an innie during pregnancy or after; If you have lower back pain; If you pee your pants every time you laugh, sneeze, cough or jump; or lastly if your abdomen refuses to flatten.....Then you might have Diastasis Recti. There are tons of at home videos & instructions that you can simply do with your fingers at home to see if you have it. 🔽
