I’d like to hear from anyone who has acute fibro flares with a concurrent migraine - not sure what comes first.
I have a dx of fibro and it is generally well controlled with Gabapentin. I did experience these combined nightmares before my dx and treated them as ‘separate’ conditions. It was only when Fibromyalgia was dx and the comorbidity explained that five years of hell became clear.
I had a total knee replacement 3 weeks ago and this lot kicked in around a week ago and I’ve also had a couple of stressful incidents since. The Gaba has just stopped working. . If you’ve ever had this you’ll know the pain and debility and it can last up to 72 hours as can a migraine on its own.
My legs and feet are burning, every joint and muscle hurts and my anxiety levels are through the roof. The migraine pain in my head needs no explanation. I’m totally exhausted and can barely walk from one side of room to the other Slept for 13 hours yesterday
I was making such good progress with my knee until now
If you’ve suffered with this you’ll know that the fear of these episodes becoming recurrent again is too much to bare
Sorry for offloading
