I have so much tension that my head feels like it’s about to explode. When I lay down a certain way, my head can feel like a brick.
It’s the most craziest feeling, and the tension in my neck has been very severe. Feels like a big muscle on the right side of my neck is tight. Then in the back of my neck, heck okay it’s my entire neck all around. Not stiff to the point I can’t move, but very aching and sore.
Nothing I do is making me feel better, which I can’t seem to get too much done without becoming tired lately. Just walking around for a certain period of time or having to stand up for too long.
I can’t drink enough, but drinking something makes me feel sick as well. Water makes extra salvia that causes me to want to gag sometimes. At times when I breath heavy, or swallow I feel a soreness on the right side of my neck.
Can’t forget the face pain, that is sharp and hurts, makes me feel like my body is going into shock. Around the jaw line, ear, down the neck. Along with sharp pains that come and go in my head. Sometimes if I raise up to fast or sit back down to quickly, this like heaviest comes in my head. Recently it happened and it was on left side of my head mostly, and made me feel cloudily.
It’s been tough trying to function, I’m kind of just here.
I feel calm, anger and sad; hopeful but worried.

Bad Flare Day
Tension and migraine headaches are severe today, I searched and came across what is called having a “Mixed Tension Migraine Headache.” Here’s the link
Headache on one or both sides
May feel dull, tight, or like a band around the head
Pain varies from mild to severe
May get worse with activity
May last 4 – 72 hours (in some people, the headaches may occur every day)
Nausea or vomiting
Sensitivity to light or sound
Numbness, tingling, weakness

Took some Advil for migraines, and then went for a walk, feeling a little better. But to my surprise it really didn’t help with my tension and neck pain. Today has not been as good as some but the good days come and go. The goal is to try and have more good days but with fibromyalgia that is very hard thing to do, since it’s so random. Never knowing what or when the pain is coming and where on the body it will be at, is a pain in its self.
Love Yourself Today
I have to lie to myself; to tell myself the truth.- Kerra Melissa Pridgen
Tell yourself that you are the best you; you can be for today, but you are better than you were yesterday. Find things that you can improve on mentally or physically everyday. If it’s take more steps than before, going a walking longer distance or maybe changing your thoughts. Remind yourself of when you were feeling good or happy, and tell yourself YOU CAN and YOU WILL be there again.
REST, THINK POSITIVE & LOOK FORWARD TO TOMORROW
