Fibromyalgia Tips on

Posted Oct 30 2012 8:00pm  has some interesting tips and info about fibromyalgia along with lots of other topics. It is the first place that I haven't read certain things that I have found to be true for me. For example
Sensory overload: Fibro often causes us to be hypersensitive to fluorescent lights (sound and flicker), bright lights, motion, sound, skin, heat and/or cold, electromagnetic sensitivity, odors (smell too much or too little). Lights seem brighter, sounds louder and more annoying - actually they are louder. Try coping devices like sunglasses, ear plugs, carrying a scented cloth to combat odor sensitivities, wearing soft fabrics that won't irritate over-sensitive skin. This hypersensitivity is part of what makes going out in public so exhausting. 

Light sensitivity is something I have been really struggling with the last few weeks. It is making just being outside very uncomfortable.
