A year has passed ........so quickly
Hope you are all as well as you can be as we all live with this illness Fibro and it's various symptoms plus associated ailments?
I wanted to pop in to say how I miss you all very much and sorry I haven't been around as much as I would like to have been. I have been suffering more and more fatigue lately.
I also wanted to share this recent EULAR Guidelines link for Fibromyalgia I came across dated 4th July 2016
I believe from posts from the Fibromyalgia community that have read it thoroughly that is centres a lot on exercise strengthening muscles and exercise intolerance. But as we have always said we would have the motivation to do this as we all want to get better but we need adequate pain control to be able to even start Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) ! Plus if we start GET we have to think about the Push and Crash cycle of fatigue plus any other illnesses or symptoms we have which may limit our ability to do any GET.
So, it sounds very well in theory but in practice there are many variables that affect many people that prove to be an obstacle to GET especially if you have ME/CFS/SEID as well as GET has been reported to cause it to worsen due to a build up of Lactic Acid. I will try and find a source to back this up and add at a later date.
Please do read and provide your opinions of these EULAR guidelines as I would be very interested to hear from you. I will do the same and discuss it further with you all
All the best
