What Is Fibromyalgia Flare Up?


What Causes Fibromyalgia Flare Up?

There are some common and known triggers of flare ups. However, if a person can manage to avoid the triggers, managing fibromyalgia should become a little bit easier. Many common triggers include factors such as

  • a person’s diet
  • sleep schedule
  • external temperature
  • the choice of treatment
  • hormonal changes
  • physical and psychological stress
  • daily schedule

How To Prevent Fibromyalgia Flare Up?

There are a few things that you can do to help manage and regulate flare ups:

  • Pain Journal – Figuring out what causes your fibromyalgia flare ups can be a troublesome process full of trial and error. Hence, keeping a pain journal is the first step to preventing fibromyalgia flare. A pain journal helps you determine your fibro flare triggers and keeps track of the list of triggers to avoid.
  • Diet – if you suspect that your diet is causing the flare ups, it can be difficult to figure out which part of the diet is causing issues. Try an elimination diet where you avoid eating certain food groups each week and see if it affects your symptoms. If your symptoms improve when you stop eating certain foods, your fibromyalgia flare up may be linked to those food. In addition, you should also ensure that you meet your daily nutritional requirements.

    I have fibromyalgia and just went through a flare up! I hurt from the base of my skull to my toes and some headaches brain fog and didn’t feel good at all! It started April 8 and lasted until May 6. This information is helpful. I can’t take any of the medications that they prescribe because of severe side effects. I am very sensitive to medications. Now I’m having a lot of trouble with my feet ankles and lower legs. I work every day and have always been very active, but as these symptoms worsen I am not able to be myself anymore. That was very hard to accept but I now know my limitations. I truly wish that there was a breakthrough and help that would help us to get back to normal. I swim in the summer but have gained a lot of weight and I hate it! This all began to effect me after they killed my thyroid. I’m not me anymore
