    I wish I had a good answer for you. Sometimes flares just show up out of nowhere. From what my doctors tell me, light exercise helps alleviate pain. I hope that helps. Walking, yoga or pilates.

      yeah I feel a little better moving, well depends on what I'm moving. I wish there was magic

    I take pregabalin and it seems to help me with fibromyalgia. I know it doesn't all people. I can tell when I miss a dose because my body becomes overly sensitive to anything touching to where it is actually painful. I recently had my dr up my dose because I was feeling that way with medication. Waking up with all over body pain. I am really thankful that the increase in dose worked. Wishing you the best!

    yeah I am at the point of flares every week twice a week. During a flare I just lightly laying down stretches (non stressful stretches/ easy flowing) and take up some fibromyalgia yoga. I watch videos on YouTube for that information but It does help and I am sore and achy but not tense. I feel loosened up but not to much and non flare days just regular fibro days; I still stretch but a little heavier. and I stand lay sit throughout the day. Just get a stretch in for when I feel tense bc If I don't I realize my flares come on faster.
