The symptoms of fibromyalgia is usually at its worst in the morning

I love following Tessa at Advocate for Mental Illness!

Tessa Can Do It! Positivity is Catching!

The symptoms of fibromyalgia is usually at its worst in the morning and it does not make getting up from bed any easier. The more severe symptoms include:

  • Severe muscle pains
  • Morning stiffness usually in the neck area and the arms
  • Puffiness around the eyes
  • Swollen feet
  • Hurting feet the moment you start walking
  • Exhaustion even after a good night’s sleep

Here are a few I was not familiar with, but sort of guessed since I suffer from them. My stiffness is all over my body though.

Read the article for some suggestions. A bath is out for me because I don’t have a tub and can’t get into or out of one.

  1. As a matter of fact most conditions are worse in the morning because of lack of movement and circulation during the night. Usually moving gently about improve them. Of course I’ve never had fibromyalgia but for experience I know that gentle movement helps. I practice Tai chi and Qigong and I found that it improves such types of conditions better than any other form of exercise because they are very gentle great for breathing and similar to walking which is the king of exercises. Wishing you the best of health.
