I hope that you all are feeling better than I am today.
I am just coming down from having a cold. Still dealing with that a bit. Dealing with phlegm in my throat causing me to gag and be nauseous. The other day my back starts hurting. I feel the pain when I cough mostly. Also I’ve been feeling dizziness, spinning kind of feeling since the 3rd.
Today has been so weird for me. I’ve gotten used to my body doing unexplainable things but today seemed new and different. Woke up around, I can’t even remember now what time it was. Anyways, I’m sitting up on the bed and my legs are getting that “falling asleep” feeling. Almost feeling numb and not the first time this has happened maybe the second. Then lying back down I still feel this way. In my legs down to my toes.
I also feel trembling in my body which is nothing new. Heart is racing and I’m used to that, I’m trying to calm down. Try to relax but I can’t. The only other thing to do than nothing is sleeping. I can’t relax enough to even close my eyes. I hadn’t ate all day and it’s around 6pm. So with no one to ask I have to just get up and do this myself. I make a salad and as I stand things don’t feel right at all. My hands are literally trembling. I haven’t felt trembling in my hands like this before. Holding something, I could feel it shaking. If I didn’t focus on holding it and hurry to put it down I may dropped everything I was carrying.
I didn’t feel right eating but it made the trembling stop a bit. I drunk some ginger ale and then continued to sip on water.
I spoke to my mom to tell her how I was feeling just in case. When I began to talk I noticed I felt like I almost could get my words out. That freaked me out for sure, almost started to cry but held back my tears.
Ive been so worried about getting the flu, hearing about the death count on the news has me freaking out. I worried about having a stroke or heart attack. It’s crazy. I’m trying not to make myself worse with worrying. The weather keeps changing outside. Due to the fact I live in my aunt house right now, I don’t have control over the temperature in the house. It’s an older house so I’m sure the air flow in here isn’t that great. I’m always feeling as if I’m suffocating. Hot, cold, cold, hot is what I deal with.
It’s now going on 8:30pm and I still feel numbness in my toes. Aching in my legs. It’s crazy I feel like my entire body feels like a numbness, or heaviness.
Of course having anxiety, is making it that much more difficult to relax. I’m doing my best. I’m about to survive another day though.
Peace & Love.

A Very Dizzy Day
Since last night I have been dizzy, head spinning feeling. My menstrual cycle came on yesterday and that’s when the dizziness began. I woke this morning still dizzy and even after eating something and drinking water, I was still dizzy.
Walking was wobbly and standing still I felt I would fall, I sway back and forth with no control of it.
It’s been an all day thing, I’ve been so out of energy, and along came the cramps that were very intense as every month is.
The pain creeps down into my thighs and legs and ache so badly. Around about 6pm I was able to take a bath and afterwards I felt a bit better, until the more I moved around the cramps came back worst. Along with my body being sore, like my collar bone and chest [sore to touch.]
So many years of this and I am still not sure to the pain of my periods, it’s different every month and I never know how bad it will be. I have felt bedridden for most of the day.

“Fibromyalgia symptoms can make life extremely difficult for those who have the disorder, making it hard to go to work, finish housework, or just get out of bed in the morning. In addition to chronic headaches, difficulty concentrating and muscle and joint pain, many fibromyalgia sufferers also have to combat chronic dizziness. This dizziness can last for mere seconds or as long as a few days, causing headaches, nausea, and even fainting spells.”-http://www.fibromyalgia-symptoms.org/fibromyalgia_dizziness.html
I haven’t been this dizzy and lightheaded before, it’s really weird, seemed to start to get really bad around the time the weather began changing into spring. I’ve had more headaches [ongoing] and a lot of aching in my neck. It’s made it difficult to do anything, but I’ve manage to get up, eat something, maybe walk to the mailbox, do some cleaning, end up back in bed because of headaches, blurry vision and the spinning around feeling. I’ve been slowly losing my appetite, feeling sick like I want to vomit. Days have not been easy and my body trembling as gotten worst.
The things that I suffer from that could be causing my dizziness are:
High Blood Pressure
Chronic Headaches [Migraine & Tension]
There are a lot of symptoms that come along with having fibromyalgia and it’s easy to say that is the cause of everything, but truly it could be so many other things going on with your body.
What are the symptoms experienced when a person feels dizzy?
Lightheadedness is the feeling of weakness and faintness as if you are about to pass out. The symptoms tend to be short-lived, depending on the cause. There may be associated nausea, sweating, and blurred vision.
If the cause is dehydration or bleeding, the symptoms may worsen by standing quickly and may resolve somewhat by lying down (orthostatic hypotension)
Heart rhythm disturbances may occur without warning and may be associated with palpitations. This may come and go or it may persist. The heart beat may be felt as too fast (often described as a pounding or fluttering), too slow, and/or irregular.
Vertigo is the sensation of spinning and may present without warning and be associated with nausea and vomiting. People with inner ear problems may be debilitated and unable to move without generating symptoms.
People with a cerebellar cause of vertigo such as a stroke or tumor may have associated coordination problems or difficulty walking.
FIBROMYALGIA IS A REAL PAIN IN THE HEAD.
