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 severe tenderness in the back of my neck,shoulders and in between my shoulder blades.Nausea, vomiting and stomach pain. Since giving birth all of these things have increased as well as back and hip pain. I'm concerned because I'm 5 weeks post pregnancy and it doesn't seem to be getting better for me. I suffered from a considerable amount of depression for a number of years which the doctors seemed to always blame for these issues.
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.
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 n tn occasional jaw pain; headaches; rls; fatigue; tingling and numbness in arms and legs and feet.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am 51 yrs old and post-menopausal. I have IBS and fibromyalgia in addition to thoracic and lumbar fusions. I suffer from headaches, hip and neck arthritis. I have tried many preventative meds for Headaches and pain but always stop taking them due to severe stomache upset. I am trying to use supplements such as magnesium, a menopausal vitamin, a probiotic, fiber pill, etc. I do okay for a while then my bowels go crazy.
1047234 tn?1253547296 I have Fibromyalgia and am RH negative, as well!
Avatar n tn They symptoms I have are heart palpatations, body aches and pains, irritable bowel, stomach upset, headaches and lately when I am finished walking and shower and then rest for a bit I can hardly walk as my feet, heels, and ankles hurt so badly it takes me 10 to 15 minutes to get going again. Some days I ache so badly all over I barely make it through the day. I recently had to have a hysterectomy and since that my syptoms have gotten much worse especially in my feet, heels, legs and hips.
Avatar n tn My Neurosurgeon told me I will be on pain meds, arthitis med and muscle relaxants for life and will require and annual exam, however he is not treating me, my family Dr. is, and my NS did say he did not want me on Narcotics. We tried Ultram but it upset my stomach I want to know if you would also believe in treatment with Opiates long term if the condition warranted it? And if so, what treatment would it be for symptoms like mine?
Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia causes pain and symptoms on both sides and upper and lower body. It could be the start of it. It usually starts up after an illness or accident (injury). In the PC address put in "common symptoms of fibromyalgia" to see what else matches your symptoms. If you think you have it, bring a copy of the symptoms from the site (highlight yours) to your doctor and ask for a referral to a reumatoligist.
665881 tn?1248930597 another doc said it's probably fibromyalgia; another said it's all in my head and the 4th thinks i probably have neck and back problems causing tingling, pain, and balance issues....I don't know what to think and this dx process seems to be taking for ever! I'm getting a neck X-ray soon to see if it's neck problems....I'm not convinced! You have fibro, yeah? Can you please explain how the stiffness in the moring feels? thanks?
Avatar n tn The important thing is definitely catching this early and doing something about it quickly. I myself have fibromyalgia, as well as my mother and her brother. My uncle has chiari malformation which has caused his fibromyalgia. This can occur after a car accident, especially if you experienced bad whiplash. You would need an MRI of the neck to rule that out. I agree with Quix though (she is very knowledgeable) that this sounds more like the RSD. I hope you get some answers soon.

Avatar m tn 3rd day on it, helps out, but severe headaches, constipation and stomach upset.
Avatar n tn I have had the same problem for about a month now, when I was younger (about ten or eleven) I had the 'eggy burps' usually after I had been particularly sick with one of the strains of flu (particularly stomach flu) just recently it got worse, it was non-stop hell for a day and a half, and now that I have just recently started eating properly again, I've noticed that there is always one connection to this problem (for me anyway, it could be different for everyone) if I eat any type of cheese, I
10641686 tn?1411758780 If you do go for anti-inflammatory over the counter drugs, make sure that you take them with or after food, because they can upset your stomach. They also don't suit everyone. Keep to the pain relievers first and keep a note whether you do get any relief. Stress, anxiety and depression can all make your physical symptoms worse, so do try and do relaxation techniques and things that help you unwind. Breathe slowly through your nose and then slowly breathe out through your mouth.
975514 tn?1325001538 In addition to the community here, MedHelp also offers tools to help you and your doctor in your road to wellness. Fibromyalgia and CFS can be so intricate and can have so many different symptoms. Due to this, it is very helpful that MedHelp offers health trackers for us to utilize. We can track our progress and especially our flare ups. Below are just a few trackers that I find useful. • CFS/FMS Tracker - • Pain Tracker - http://www.medhelp.
Avatar f tn Last week as I live by myself I had to call an ambulance as the pain in stomach was so severe. They did blood work and said my pancreais enzymes were elevated a little. Gave me pain pills and sent me home. I had a cat scan and endoscopy which did not show anything. Pain radiates to the back. What should I do? I live in a small area and do not like the doctor that did my surgery. Also. I weighed 248 lbs at time of surgery, and am still losing but not trying. I am now at 117 lbs.
Avatar n tn I think everything is over and I clean up. I walk out of the toilet and in about 2 minutes time the stomach cramp and the fainting sensation comes back (I've fainted only once to date from this and was out for about 15-20 minutes). 6. When I get back to the toilet I have a really violent Diarrhoea episode in pure liquid state.
1222076 tn?1423031349 He done an EGD a month ago and dignosed me with Gasteritis and Acid Reflux. He said my stomach just produces to much acid and they tried to prescribe me a different acid reducer but the problem is my insurance wont cover for the ones their trying to get me on because their like $200. I have tried several over the counter acid reducers but I still have a lot of problems.
483733 tn?1326802046 It has taken quite a long time and a lot of pain and fatigue but I finally got results of all my testing and appointment with the Rheumatologist Specialist in Toronto. He says my blood work is still progressing but that it and my symptoms are leading him to feel I have Lupus and Rheumatoid Arthritis. He has started me on Plaquenil (an anti-malarial) that should hopefully start working on my inflammation, pain and fatigue within a few weeks and hopefully by the time I start my new job.
Avatar n tn I'm mean I still get the upset stomach , but as far as pain goes , it's gone!! If I get under alot of a stress then I start getting a little of the symptoms but nothing at all like I was before Humeria. The only pain I do have now is in my joints and muscles, they think it could be fibromyalgia, still in the their not sure what it is stage.....I would recommend the Humeria injections to anyone who hasn't had much luck with any of the other drugs ...
Avatar f tn ( my ankles and feet pretty much stay swollen and hips hurt more. and my abdomen is also more puffy!
217229 tn?1192766004 -Feeling like I'm walking in Molasses --- almost like a head cold but not quite. -Upset stomach -Dizzy head, can't focus on things I really don't like this at all. Do the sides go away?
Avatar f tn like a tissue or bone pain, not a muscle pain and it is all over, not in one localized spot. Sore and tender but not swollen glands and throat, ear ache, stomach upset, fatigue, usually a headache and sometimes I feel short of breath. Just a general feeling of malaise. They are such common symptoms to so many things so it's been hard and my primary is frustrated. I've schedule an appt with a rheumatologist and have an appointment with the Infectious Disease doctor again (symptoms or not).
653923 tn?1225948192 5htp can be taken 3 x a day at 100 mg but for many sleepiness is a problem so taking 100-200 mg at night is an option/also 5htp combined with 800mg of magnesium and a dose of st johns wort is good for pain and relaxation/recommended for fibromyalgia the 5htp and B complex are great choices, C is good to keep ur immune system going as detox can make us weak and get sick easily...a calcium/magnesium supp is good at night for anxiety and sleep..a good multi with zinc and iron/iron helps with rls...
