How to Prevent Fibromyalgia Flare Stank

How to Prevent Fibromyalgia Flare Stank

Anyone who has suffered from an extended flare or has been hit with back to back flares knows how bad fibromyalgia flare stank can be!

Hygiene is rarely discussed in the fibromyalgia community. It’s personal and embarrassing. I mean seriously, how many people, besides myself, wake up and think that today is a good day to announce my stench on social media?

Personal hygiene is a major issue for the chronically ill and is something that needs to be discussed without shame or humiliation.

Fatigue and pain are the cause of fibromyalgia flare stank. It is not that we are lazy, but that we have little to no physical strength. Pain makes what movements we can make even harder. The result is going much longer than we should between showers/baths.

I was recently hit with an unexpected back to back fibromyalgia weather flare. The first flare was expected. I began feeling the effects of the incoming extreme heatwave days before it hit. As usual, I began feeling better after it reached its peak. But then something unexpected occurred. A daytime high reduction of 35 degrees (115 on Sunday to 81 on Tuesday) in 48 hours was more than my body could tolerate.

When I awoke Wednesday morning, my flare had subsided, but my stank was in overdrive! Because of the first flare, I had already pushed the boundaries of my shower schedule. And thanks to the second flare, my stench was so bad that I considered having my husband douse me in liquid soap and spraying me down with a garden hose!
