Huge apologies to all for my absence. My health was so poor last week that everything just got too much for me. I don't normally share Fibro stories - but I will this time as it may be of interest to other fibro ladies of a 'certain' age ;-)
I have been having a really tough time with the jolly old 'night sweats'. I don't mind being hot - but this was getting to be really painful - like I was going to boil over or something. I had a routine check up with the doc anyway and he recommended herbal treatment Yes - really - the doc - I love my doc - he is so open minded and approachable. We have a really good health shop next door to me so I went to see them.
Now - if you have Fibro - you will probably know that one of the worst things to affect it is Adrenaline (which is why we have to avoid stress and bad situations). Apparently - the 'hot flushes' and 'night sweats' induce an adrenalin rush response - which is why I was in so much pain and struggling with Fibro flares!!!! You have to know about those things don't you - now it all makes sense. Anyway, now I am on a Red Clover Extract Complex (???) with all sorts of other little goodies in it to help calm the adrenalin. So far so good, I actually slept all through most of the night last night - can't tell you how long ago I did that.
I still update on my kitten facebook page as that is just a little quickie post - so pop over and 'like' the page and you will get all the updates.
I am gradually getting back on top of things so just keep your fingers crossed for me.
