    I am always low on my vitamin D count so I do take a supplement of 5000 iu’s daily. Today it rained and weather was drastic from our winter weather. Suffered terribly today from the weather, hardly could walk , had to force myself to do my usual, which is alot for a fibromyalgia patient. Can’t wait till tomorrow, back in the 20’s and SNOW, I feel so much better in cold weather. Purchased a Imtex hot tub, it does great!!! and I was very impressed with it.It does help me before I go to bed , relaxes me. I suggest to anyone that has this disease to think about the hot tub, only cost 400$ and was well worth the relief.

      I agree we got a hot tub for me and it helped so much! I didn’t realize how much until it broke! We are getting a new one tomorrow thank goodness!

  2. I don’t know if this is the case for others, but I’ve found that caffeine makes me crash rather than waking me up. During my first year with fibromyalgia, I was in high school at a program that teaches independent living and job skills to blind students. I pretty much lived on coffee that year. I had no idea it was making things worse until a couple years later, when I converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and stopped consuming caffeine and realized I was more alert without it. My suspicions were confirmed when I drank a caffeinated soda at my dad’s house where that was all they had and was crashed out on his couch a few minutes later. I suggest trying to go without caffeine and then maybe drinking something that contains a little to see what happens. If you’re more alert without it and find yourself getting even more exhausted after you consume it, you might be like me.

      Hello..Yes, I can consume a cup of Coffee then Crash. Its really good to know I’m not the only done with this issue. I tried to stop drinking coffee in the afternoon. I do drink Organic Green Tea. Very Delish with organic Honey.non- pasteurized. I also add Turmeric to my Green Tea as well as cinnamon. Helps with the pain. Thank you for telling your story. I’m exactly the Same. Have a Blessed Day..LaShona 😌

    Please can you put this in one article so we don’t have to click and wait for the next paragraph? For someone with FMS that is not a good idea!!!!

    It’s good to know that caffeine bothers other fibromyalgia sufferers also. I want to learn what other foods trigger my flares. Please share your insights
