People with fibromyalgia walk a fine line.
Many things can tip the balance and lead to what we call a fibro-flare where symptoms temporarily increase in intensity.
We are often sensitive to:
- cold or drafty environments
- hormonal fluctuations
- loud noises
- bright lights
- some foods (these are mine)
- prescription medications
- poor quality sleep
- anything that disrupts normal routine
All of these may contribute to fibromyalgia symptom flare-ups. Everything seems more difficult when you are in a flare. Everyone experiences flares differently and everyone has different things that trigger their flares.
Anything you want to add to the list of what aggravates fibro?
