Fibromyalgia and dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia and dizziness


Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia can last forever. There are treatments and even possible cures out there (research protocols). Fatigue, dizziness and so many other symptoms are common in fibro patients and in fact, 29% of fibro patients have a positive ANA titer. I hope that you will consider joining us on MedHelp's fibro/CFS board. I'm the Community Leader there.
Avatar n tn The members there have more information and personal experience with Fibro and the medications prescribed for the painful condition. Here's the link: Does Savella seem to help with your symptoms of Fibro? I hope so and I hope that your pain will be better controlled. Please let us know how you are doing. We'll be interested to hear how you are adjusting to the medication.... and if it is effective.

Avatar n tn I have had fibro for many years, and symptoms like this seem to come and go in cycles. If you keep experiencing them, tell your primary dr, and see if he recommends a cardio checkup. Better safe than not. Just because you have fibro, doesn't mean other things can't go wrong.
710094 tn?1229312306 If you are vomiting on a daily basis, you are depleting your electrolytes and could also suffer from dehydration or malnutrition. Any of these could cause problems with dizziness and forgetfulness. It could be contributed to fibromyalgia, but I pray that you are still under a physicians care for your gastric problem because your symptoms could be a result of that as well. Also, prior to adding any form of herbal, homeopathic or vitamins to your diet please check with your physician.

10175413 tn?1427173851 As I was saying, I crashed and burned the last day of tx and had a bad first week after tx. BUt, based on advise of Sandi, et. al, I rested, kept up my water intake, continued the same eating patterns, etc, and a week later, felt better. Each week since then has been better. I couldn't always see it at the moment, but in retrospect, I can see the changes. Rest! Be good to yourself. Drink that water. Your body has been through a hard course. It will improve! Feel better soon!
Avatar f tn In the mid 1980's, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, so now, I suffer with both disorders. Does anyone else here have both, MS and Fibromyalgia? How can you tell the difference between an exacerbation of Fibromyalgia vs MS pain? I went to the Rheumatologist because my fingers hurt. Some of my knuckles swell and I have some disfiguration. The Rheumatologist is well aware of my MS diagnosis.
Avatar n tn hearing tested, both came back fine. I do have fibromyalgia and suffer with many of the problems that go along with that. I also feel as though I have things crawling on me, but there is nothing there. My feet fall asleep even when I am walking and I often have a twitching in my right eyelid. I am very tired in the evening and often fall asleep before dinner. I have even been having some trouble with tightness in my chest. I have given you all the information I can think of right now.
Avatar f tn are good places to start learning more about difficult cases of Lyme. Both the book and movie have easy-to-find websites with lots of free content. Good luck and take care.
Avatar n tn Take a look at this article: Unfortunately, without journal access through a university/medical library, the full text costs $$, but google scholar caught this glimpse from it: "Several recent investigations have also identified a high prevalence of orthostatic intolerance among those with fibromyalgia. ... " so it does link CFS, EDS, OI, and fibromyalgia (and is by Rowe).
Avatar n tn I'm scared because I know I'm going to need it to live! I also have had fibromyalgia for years and along with that comes a sensitivity to a lot of meds. Does anyone have any info on this. Help Please!
390388 tn?1279639813 There are many things that could be involved, so be sure to have yourself checked out. Anemia can cause sweating and dizziness; gastric problems, or the heart muscle itself may be inflammed. Also, high cholestrol can lead to plaque buildup and cause chest pain. You had a right to be scared...anyone would be if they were in the same situation. As for the don't want to risk a heart attack or stroke because the doctor is blooming!!! lol Please take care.
4861077 tn?1360159739 Hi all just a quick question I have just been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and live with pain everyday. I find it hard to do all my daily things to the point that it hurts to peel potatoes what kind of help can I get for this as it is all new to me. I take lots of medication and am still in pain please help.
Avatar f tn It sounds like you are getting a little bit of the run around here. You really need to see a Rheumatologist who is friendly to Fibromyalgia. I looked at your profile and didn't notice where you live. Are you in the states or outside? Below is a really good website to find a doctor or provider who knows how to treat and diagnose FM and CFS. Depending on where you live, I may have one more site for you.
Avatar f tn I told dr i couldn't any more injections and that they werent helping. And that the savella wasn't helping either and he wants me to give it another 3wks and come back. i asked him for some more samples since it was going to cost me little over 100 dollars for the month so he gave me a months worths of samples. Im going to call and make a apt with a rheumatologist since i got my ssi denial and we will see where that goes. I guess it couldn't hurt anything.
1943833 tn?1349280189 vertigo at night with dizziness and sickness lasting for a couple of hours after getting up. I had blood tests already and its not thyroid or menopause. Low vitamin D which Ive been taking supplements for, tests for RA which showed slightly raised levels but these symptoms have really got worse in last 2 months. Going to see rheumatologist in 4 weeks so hope to find out what its all about. Will post again if anything comes up that makes sense of it all.
Avatar n tn I have also been having a lot of dizzy spells which are made worse when I move and are terrible when I bend over to wash my hair. This dizziness and foggy feeling in my head can last up to three weeks and seems to get worse every time. I have been given behistamine by nmy doctor who thinks its related to postural vertigo but I am not convinced. It makes me feel terrible and really tired. Can you help please?
Avatar f tn I've been trying like crazy to come to some conclusion as to why I have been suffering with the chronic muscle pain in my neck and at the base of my skull and upper back. I've had joint swelling and stiffness. I can't get a good night's sleep and have a feeling of "fullness" in my head all the time (feels like a vise around my head) my migraines are cyclical and are controlled pretty well with the topamax but I have had significant weight loss recently.
Avatar n tn diagnosed with fibromyalgia and migraines. I have been having a lot of problems with my short term memory. I often forget what I'm doing or where I am going. Now I am having some major problems with dizziness. It isn't like a spinning, it is more like waves. The only way I know to describe it is to say it looks like what you see when pavement gets very hot or when pressure builds. It really scares me.
Avatar n tn About a month and a half ago I woke up one morning and sat up in my bed and the room started spinning. and I had a migraine. I got up and walked around and still was very dizzy, and still had the migraine. Everyday since then I have had migraines. I get dizzy throughout the day and I've tried getting up out of bed slower and that didn't help.
Avatar f tn I too have the dizziness and the balance problem. And yes it is very scary to drive at night. I've had the dizziness, etc, for about 2 years or so. I've had fibro for 15 years. I don't take anything for it. I've read in this forum that it is one of the symptoms. It's just another thing to put in the "fibro basket", as I call it.
Avatar f tn I have been experiencing major changes with my fibro symptoms such as frequent urination and dizziness. The dizziness literally feels like someone is picking my head up and shaking it....even when I'm sitting still. Does anyone else have this going on? Sometimes I sit and I really think I'm about to lose it. The insomnia meds don't work. I take Klonopin 100 times a day just to stay sane and keep from going off on my coworkers. I just don't know what else to do.

I also have a ganglion cyst on my right ring finger. cancer runs strong in my family and I'm 22 mother of one son. also I don't follow the recomended diet very well, I'm still trying to figure it out. also I've had a non-surgical abortion may of last year.
Avatar n tn My cardiologist checked the pacemaker and said everything was functioning fine and also check an echo(was normal) and all basic labwork(all normal).My pacemaker check did reveal that my heart rate was not getting past 90, so they made some adjustments to the rate respone feature.I am very, very active and run and do cardiovascular exercise 3-5 times/week for an hour.I am just very, very exhausted now and feel so much different than I did.BP's have been normal.
Avatar n tn 50, he didn't do any other tests. At this time some anxiety which i thought was stress beause of the dizziness and it driving me crazy. At this point had 2 injections of the steriod from the neuro, but the endo didn't know it. At this time we left the levoxyl alone at .75 and the above section is where it all went crazy. Now my symptoms are anxiety, can handle stress, anger and agitation, still muslce aches in my thighs and upper arms.
