Constant you have those?

Constant flares, sometimes with less intensity. That is something we experience with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Cold or damp weather, poor sleep, fatigue, stress or over-exertion makes our pain worse.

Tingling (pares thesis) is a pins-and-needles sensation, like when the foot "falls asleep", is what we also experience on different parts of our bodies.

These are symptoms that are not apparent to the outside world, the people that see us day in and day out. I pray that friends and family try to educate themselves and try to understand the symptoms people with this terrible disease feel and try to deal with on a daily basis.

I pray and hope that this information has helped someone understand the pain and fatigue we feel daily. I also pray for pain free days for anyone experiencing these symptoms.
