Avatar m tn every medicine I had been put on has been problems and I have been taken off all for Fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and arthritis. Now, my right eye is getting fuzzy, not every day, but more days all the time. My doctor has said although I need back surgery, be careful doing that because it will possibly make your fibromyalgia worse. Will I ever be able to try medicines again? I have an allergy from them...swollen tongue and throat type but, can that ever change???/ Thanks.
Avatar f tn I have Fibromyalgia and can only work three days a week with days in between and have to sleep 12 hours and two short naps during the days off. This year if I do too much during one day, my upper back spasms into a neck/shoulder pain spasm and causes migraine, and I am bedridden. The only thing that provides relief is a hot bath and codeine and 2 muscle relaxants and one gravol. It has only been that bad for one year.
Avatar f tn I had 6-7 doctors tell me it was fibromyalgia without even a blink of an eye, and told me there was nothing they could do for me. I tried all the meds that supposedly treat fibro, but none of them worked. I am now trying Savella, and I hope it helps because all the other medicines have failed. I was under chronic stress for five years, including my pregnancy. It has manifested itself into this heinous monster, and I am at a loss.
Avatar n tn Can Fibromyalgia affect eye sight? My mother has fibromyalgia and is complaining that her eye sight is blurry and eyes feel strained. Closing her eyes make them feel better. We have had her eyes examined and we are told everything is fine.

10059661 tn?1407568770 RAI scares me. I have the eye problems now with Grave's and I've read that RAI can sometimes make it worse. I only have one good eye as it is. Because I've only been taking the thyroid meds for 3 weeks (I also take the beta blocker Atenolol 25 mgs a day split into 2 doses) should I be seeing better results? I've read elsewhere about the half-life of methimazole so maybe I should split my dose? And does anyone else have fibromyalgia? I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired.
4437322 tn?1354574957 Hi Colleen! I have problems with my eyes too. My right eye tends to droop when I have a really really bad day. I don't know if it's fibro either. Well I pray you get better and that there is a cure just around the corner. Gentle hugs to you and have a great day or the best day you can!
1692515 tn?1306273648 I have been told my mother that at 2 years old I put a bobbie pin in an electrical outlet and she had to get a mop to dislodge me. My question is could my fibromyalgia, reoccuring shingles, and electric shock feeling be caused by this and what can be done to stop it.
470168 tn?1237474845 Oh, and I am on both a lupus med and a fibromyalgia med... I am taking Lyrica for the pain, which has been recently approved for fibromyalgia. It knocks a lot of pain out, but I warn you if you aren't on it... it makes you gain weight if you don't watch what you eat. As long as you keep an eye on it, though, you should only gain 5 pounds initially which generally comes off after a few weeks. I am also taking plaquenil, which is used for lupus people.
434278 tn?1324709825 She had/has a lot of neurological problems and fatigue because of the deficiency. She went years w/o treatment and it caused permament nerve damage.
Avatar n tn I am pretty much bedridden. My eye pain gets so bad that I think my eye balls are going to explode (mostly in my left eye) and my left eye lid droops. A thousand years ago, science and medicine thought that the earth sat on the back of a turtle standing on two elephants. A thousand years from now, science and medicine will look at us and laugh in the same way. Medicine is just an educated guess.
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.
1943833 tn?1349280189 feeling in my head (behind my eyes), and can't mentally focus easily when that happens. It affects my eye sight too. -I trip and fall often -sometimes I stutter now. Or completely forget the word I need, when it's as simple as "water" or "dog". -memory is failing me, a lot. Both long term & short term. Short term is really getting bad :/ -Fingers fall asleep if I'm lying down, no matter where my hands are. -Pretty severe stiffness in the morning.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia recently and I am trying to understand it as its making my life miserable and hell. I have very bad pain in my joints, neck, hands, arms, fingers, toes...basically everywhere.Recently, I started to get very bad headaches that continued for weeks and wont go away. Not sure if this is related to fibromyalgia, but my GP prescribed me a treatment for migraines which didnt help. I cant sleep at all and everyone thinks its in my head.
428266 tn?1295648380 Hi Lori and welcome to the MS Forum. Honestly I don't get the sense that what you are dealing with is MS. There are probably 1,001 different symptoms to MS and each and every one of those could also be linked to a different disease as well. The combination of fibro and the back issues must be horrendous. Then you toss in the problems with the migraines, PF and the other stuff and it must be miserable.
1364792 tn?1278054787 GERD or acid reflux is common to have at the same time which can present as chest pain. One can have neuropathy, numbness, headaches and even vision problems as the muscles of the eye are affected like any other muscle or you could present with Sjogrens which is common with anyone with arthritis and many with Firbro. Don't know about the allergy or dizziness. Others may be able to reflect on those two.
Avatar n tn ROutine lab tests to check for a thyroid disorder, muscle problem, possibly EKG if you're having cardiac rhythm problems (they could be anxiety attacks also), and a formal eye exam by an ophthalmologist may need to be considered. If everything turns out ok, consider a rheumatology referral to help with the possible diagnosis of fibromyalgia. GOod luck.
Avatar f tn I also was complaining of pressure on the right side of my throat with swallowing problems. Went to GI dr and had scope. He said my esophagus was twisted and he dialated it. It did get better but now I have that pressure on both sides of my neck. I get stabbing nerve sensations anywhere but very commonly in my head, ears and jaw???? From what I've read, IF it is MS it can take years to get an accurate dx?
Avatar f tn I am a 39 yr old woman. I have a lot of pain in my neck, shoulders and back. Plus I get a lot of headaches, almost everyday. I suffer from severe distention in the stomach and constipation as well. The distention increases as the day progresses, and I burp a lot in the evenings, plus after meals. Tylenol / Ibuprofen does help with the headaches.
Avatar n tn It does not seem the doctors here are very sure exactly what is going on with her and the exact facts of fibromyalgia and how to treat it.
Avatar f tn poor sleep pattern. Symptoms are worse with stress, monthly cycle and activity. I also have eye pain and intraocular pressure of 26 in my left eye, and foot pain. I could continue. There is one thing which greatly puzzles me and this is that I have painful lumps in my fatty tissue. These lumps hurt and burn whether I apply pressure or not. There must be hundreds of them, the size of marbles and peas. They also feel like strands of rope over my hips and thigh.
Avatar f tn But in early Feb I had a bad day where I had a lot of mobility problems and happened to have a dr appt that day. Well, he saw me and was a little surprised I was in such a bad way. He examined me again and again I mentioned the fatigue. I went shopping with girlfriends for a day and ended up so tired I slept 15h and stayed in bed the entire next day!
Avatar n tn They told her the vessesl from the left side of her temple was inflamed and she might have to receive a pacemaker. Is this typical to fibromyalgia.... To recieve heart problems with fibromyalgia? Where can she go for help? It does not seem the doctors here are very sure exactly what is going on with her and the exact facts of fibromyalgia and how to treat it.
Avatar n tn I had started biting the side on my cheek, my tongue was scalloped all the way around it, and I woke up at night short of breath in addition to the pain, bruising, twtiching on my left eye, ear fullnes of my left ear, jaw, head and neck pain , I could not turn my head to my right shoulder.
778275 tn?1326917223 These infections can invade the peripheral nerves and cause all sorts of nerve conduction and sensitivity problems. There are a number of viral and bacterial infections that could be involved, and you mentioned one yourself, Herpesviruses, and there are bacteria, such as Mycoplasma, that have also been found in peripheral neuropathy cases.
975514 tn?1325001538 I am being treated by a Rheumatologist for osteoarthritis and Fibromyalgia. I am concerned though that this eye problem I am having might be somehow connected to a rheumatic problem. I do have a slightly elevated RA factor and a positive ANA, but I haven't received any further arthritic diagnosis. Do you think it's possible this eye problem I am having could be connected to my arthritis problem? And this of course is just in theory?
456333 tn?1206976813 My question after all that is do you have to have debilitating pain to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia because I have read thats the main symptom and based on all my other problems I woudln't say pain is my main symptom at all. Any input anyone has would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn I began taking Samento drops and Wobenzym tablets and the eye and ear problems have both stopped- Praise God. I'm still having problems with my teeth though.
