    Flare up

    Woke up this morning with swollen hands, feet and hurting all over especially the joints in my hands and feet. I seem to be very sensitive to cold, if I get cold I hurt. And humidity is a huge factor.. And I've been fighting fatigue for years, I was given a so called diagnosis of Fibromyalgia about 10 years ago. But I can't afford to see doctors or anything. My husband is disabled and I'm the only one who can try to work for us.. Any suggestions for any help is greatly appreciated..
