A Fibromyalgia Outbreak-Crisis is a
worsening of the symptoms that we commonly have
Start with your medication.If your doctors prescribed something to help you deal with flare-ups, take it regularly.
Do not skip any doses, even if it seems like you are not getting better.
A seizure can suddenly get worse after you start to feel better. Taking medicine is also helpful if you feel like you might be starting a fibromyalgia outbreak. Better to be safe than to regret later.
It is also a good idea, that you have initiative and the ability to anticipate future problems or needs in your everyday life, when it comes to fibromyalgia outbreaks. Explain to the people around you that you are having a difficult time.
Take no additional responsibility at work or at home.
And do nothing, or do not deal, with people who could cause you stress.
Stress will only worsen your symptoms.
Set personal limits with the people who depend on you.
+ Catch up on sleep
And if you can, take the opportunity to catch up on the dream.
Getting some extra rest will really help your fibromyalgia flare-up resolve faster and be less severe.
Although it is not easy to sleep with an outbreak, you could talk about this with your doctor, in order to have a medication available to help you sleep and relieve yourself, at the time of a crisis.
But even if you can’t sleep, any relaxing break you get is the best way to handle a crisis.
Let them know that you need them to be able to rest and improve yourself.
Manage your diet
Make sure that you are eating a healthy diet. You can be tempted during an outbreak to get into bed and eat junk food that is easy to prepare. Although that’s perfectly understandable, it won’t help your symptoms.
These tips can help you deal with outbreaks.
But if you have a crisis regularly, the best thing to do is to talk to your doctor.
A doctor who specializes in fibromyalgia (Rheumatologist and / or Neurologist) will know the most effective treatments, and can even give you some advice on how to manage your daily life to avoid flare-ups.
Even if you already have a doctor, finding one that takes care of fibromyalgia patients regularly can be helpful.
You will be more aware of the best treatments and research.
