How did the wedding stress and anxiety affect your fibromyalgia, and what things did you do to help cope with it?
My wedding stress went into full force over the weekend after a situation regarding my Future Mother-In-Law, (I’m not going to go into details right now, because I am more interested in coping’with my flare ups ), but I have been very anxious ever since. I know that is the worst thing for my flare ups, and that soon I will lose all my energy and will begin experiencing asymptom I call ” shocks”, stabbing pains randomly located on my body. I am not on medications, but I am not against it either. My fibromyalgia is under the most control when I am active and stress free. I am very active with my job, but the anxiety and stress Is starting to get to me. I have been very under control recently and feel like this wedding stress is going to waken the dragon of pain..
It doesn’t help that it is raining too 🙁
How do you cope? Special diet? Meditation? Medication?
