A lot of people who suffer from fibromyalgia tend to not use their muscles in the area where they feel pain. This is harmful because your muscles will get stiff and you may experience more pain.
If you suffer from fibromyalgia, it is important not to overdo it. Don’t plan on hosting a wedding shower, volunteering at a craft fair and doing your morning exercise routine all on the same time. Since fibromyalgia is called the invisible illness, you may feel worse than you look. A lot of people do not understand this disorder because people with fibromyalgia can look fine on the outside but on the inside be suffering from a lot of pain.
Limit the amount of stress when you are having symptoms of fibromyalgia. When you are dealing with this disorder, everything that used to feel simple is probably a lot more difficult for you and may be stressful for you. Limit the amount of stress in your life. Enjoy a dinner out instead of cooking it or enjoy a professional massage.
Since your job involves your daily life, you will have to modify things at work. If you work at home, make things comfortable and take breaks often. If you work in an office, replace your chair with something comfortable or add a back massager to it. You can also buy a ottoman to raise your feet while you are sitting at your computer desk.
