Avatar f tn I also have hypoglycemia, high cholesterol(using lipitor), and arthritis in most of my joints, severe fibromyalgia, and last but worst, trigeminal neuropathy. I am in constant pain. I gained 70 lbs. before a doctor would acknowledge there was a problem. I have lost 20 lbs. from a combo of trigem and an allergic reaction while changing drugs.
Avatar f tn I was told one of the side effects that I would have is weight loss. For the first three months, I did not, now my weight is coming off incredibly fast. Like 5lbs practically overnight. In running blood tests, they are now showing that I may be diabetic and have Kidney disease, both are still inconclusive. The symptoms to both the diabetes and kidney disease I can think back to before I went on the Topomax and remember having. So I don't think they started with being on Topomax.

Avatar f tn I have been taking Cymbalta for about a week now for fibromyalgia and they say it takes a month to start feeling the effects but they're wrong I started feeling at the second day I took it it has done wonders for me but the only side effect that I do have is no appetite. I have also noticed that I am losing some weight I haven't weighed myself but I can feel it when I put my clothes on. Has anybody lost a significant amount of weight while taking this medication?

Avatar f tn A combination of IBS, ulcers, and chronic pain can cause weight loss, but now that you seem on the road to recovery, it's a good idea to touch base with your doctor on safe weight gain as well as whether there are any other lurking causes of your weight loss (like hyperthyroidism). One recommendation is to incorporate small meal supplements (like Ensure) into your meals - these are generally healthy and are higher in calories. Take care.
Avatar f tn It sounds more like you have an illness other than FMS. Have you have an entire GI series for the weight loss and stomach pain? If not you really should. The only time that I lost weight that fast without trying is when my Thyroid went from being Hypothyroid to Hyperthyroid. Has your sleep changed to insomnia? Do you feel like you can stop moving around? Matbe you should Google your symptoms that go with stomach pain and weight loss without trying.

Avatar n tn Hi, I just got the book by Kevin Trudeau on Weight Loss Cure they don't want you to know about. If follows a lot of my beliefs in that processed food is basically causing us to be obese. It also talks about raw milk that I am a proponent of. I believe that hCG will help. I have fibromyalgia and went to the research hospital to do a study. The staff suggested that I participate in a growth hormone study for fibromyalgia and noted that one of the "side-effects" was weight loss.

Avatar n tn I am a 46-year-old woman whose only risk factor was being overweight and not getting enough exercise until March 1996, when I started an exercise and weight loss program. I have fibromyalgia and found that I was most successful doing water aerobics because they were non-weightbearing. My doctor prescribed fenfluramine for weight loss and I was already on Prozac for depression. I did lose about 50 lbs over a period of about 15 to 18 months.

1221258 tn?1267542429 I tend to yo-yo diet. I get up to over 160 and I start to panic. I'm 5'9" so I can carry the weight without *looking fat*. but my clothes don't fit. I have sizes 4.6.8.10 and even some 12s... When I got to 163 last fall, my sister and I went on a diet and we both lost 10 pounds. Over the holidays I gained it all back.
