Fibromyalgia Tip -- 10/29/2007

Here in the Northern Hemisphere where it's Autumn leading into Winter and the temperatures are getting colder we find ourselves having a harder time functioning and slipping into flare-ups. Here's a tip to help you.

Coping with flare-ups

A flare is what we call it when all of our symptoms seem to intensify, so that we find ourselves in more pain, and functioning at a much lower level that usual. Flares can be brought on by stress, either physical or emotional, changes in weather, over-exertion, etc. Try to pace yourself and avoid intense periods of activity. When a flare hits, don't push yourself. Your body is telling you that it needs a time-out.
