Patient discussion about dress

Q. Why does it hurt so bad to move or even get dressed because of the fibrmyalgia? Some days I can't even move to get out of bed because I hurt so bad. Other days I hurt so bad that even trying to wear clothes hurts.

A. Hi! I saw your question and wanted to tell you that you need to try to move around a little. The more you sleep or lay around the worse it gets. You have to find your own way of moving and not moving. Walking is the best thing or swimming. Just moving around is good too depeending on pain level. Do too much or too little keeps you in pain. Moving around brings the pain down. Also, pain relievers help. Motrin or any NSAID will affect your kidneys and liver. But pain reliever is better.
