Feeling more under the weather, is anyone else?

I have had fibro for a while but just before Christmas I felt generally unwell, I found it difficult to get out of bed, I felt dizzy, weird, and more headaches than usual ... I went to docs and was told I had an inner ear infection and virus, and was given some anti sickness tabs ... I felt better after a few days. Today I have started feeling crappy again, anyone else?

So many possible explanations. Another infection / virus / whatever? Overdoing it in the run-up to christmas? Post-Christmas blues? Long nights, dark days? Cold temperatures? Fibro flare? Hopefully you will soon start to feel better, but if not, it's probably a good idea to go and see your GP, and rule out anything that can be treated successfully like your ear infection.

Hope you feel better tomorrow.

My husband got the flu like virus that's going around just before xmas and now I have it. Was getting more aches and pains than usual and thought I had just over done things a bit because until I started sneezing and coughing it was hard to tell whether it is was a virus or FM.

Any illness seems to make FM symptoms much worse....

I seem to be getting over it now though, hope you feel better soon too x

Thanks guys, yeah my kids have cold flu, and temps ..... I just have aches, pains and dizziness ...... Perhaps I have overdone it, I just want a break from feeling ill, but I am sure most of u feel like that too! ... And then when we have a day when we feel slightly better we do so much more than we should and it starts again xxx .... I'm glad u r all here, it's the first time I have posted xxxx

I had a virus like that a couple of years ago, technical term is labyrinthits. It can come and go for a couple of months but each time the dizziness and sickness lessons, keep taking the tablets. Hope it eases soon

So much going around right now and stress does us no favours. I was mid COPD and fibro flare when my COPD got very bad 4.30am Xmas morning. So bad I envisaged spending Xmas in hospital, but I never let that happen. So chances are hun you are really stressed out, we can be very stressed and not realise how badly stressed we are. I hope you feel better soon hun xxxxx
