997519 tn?1251243449 I started having a tingling pain on my arm. It climbed to my hand and back to my arm. Then moved to my legs. I want to know if this is fibro.
Avatar f tn I do not have muscle pain or weakness, in fact I use my muscles to manage my lower back pain. None of the medications the doctor gave me for fibromyalgia are working to relieve my pain. And I keep getting this painful attacks of pleurisy.
Avatar n tn I have Fibromyalgia and also have been experiencing noticable tender lumps on my ribs w/ extreme acid reflux/indegestion burning pain, severe abdominal/back/leg pain and now severe migranes. I'm not sure if this is just how this illness goes or if we are a couple of the really unlucky ones. I've had almost every test out there and there's one thing I can recommend, get a thoracic MRI- they will require x-rays first however.
Monster ### FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS Pain — The primary symptom of fibromyalgia is widespread (diffuse), chronic, and persistent pain. The pain may be described as a deep muscular aching, soreness, stiffness, burning, or throbbing. Patients may also feel numbness, tingling, or unusual “crawling” sensations in the arms and legs.
Avatar f tn It started out feeling like my bones were aching then i started to have pain in my left leg , shoulders, neck and back. And paresthesia in my left arm. I went to the emergency room and the doctor and was told it was sciatica and tense muscles probsbly from stress.. after about 3 weeks of this the leg pain and paresthesia went away but i was still having neck and back pain, headaches, muscle twitches . Now i just started having those same symptoms in my rifht side.
1033336 tn?1252509731 The characteristic feature of Fibromyalgia is a muscle pain mostly in neck, back, thighs, and hips. There is presence of specific tender points in these areas that trigger the pain. Along with this there is morning stiffness in the muscles, brain fog, dizziness and other neurological symptoms. Since you are suffering from pain specifically located at the joints, and it started after the flu, the pains are related to the viral infection.
Avatar f tn Sleep is essential especially for fibromyalgia or any type of pain. If you can get 6 hours minimum you can better deal with the pain. Have you ever had a sleep study? I requested one and I have sleep apnea. I also take trazadone. It is an older sleep medication that is taken at bedtime. You and your doctor can decide if taking something would help. To me your top list would be your headaches, not sleeping and pain.
Avatar m tn I think that gabapentin causes the vision problems, I've been on 3200 mgs of gabapentin for a long time and I've noticed my eyes getting blurry, I've recently stopped the gabapentin and was put on lyrica and I feel better, I think I need my dose moved up but the gabapentin was really messing with my mind.
Avatar f tn 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. Hot water bottle constantly on upper back and hot bath or I will NOT fall asleep due to pain and spasms. Is this something other people have?
2010625 tn?1329375656 I think if there is a way to support the research of fibromyalgia that we should as it is very important, to figure out the causes, and ways to find better treatments. I know at one point I was in so much pain without any pain medication, that it caused me to have an episode of dissociation. I really hope that the medical community figures it out soon, as there are so many people suffering, and will continue to suffer until they do.
Avatar f tn I am not sure what is happening to me. I've suffered through Fibromyalgia for the past 16 years, IBS, but, these symptoms are the worst. I have a terrible burning pain in the vaginal area and the urethra. My urine smells like infected urine. As an RN,(previously), I recall this odor when patients had UTI's. I have dropped off urine specimens at my Urologist, GYNE, internist,and they have all been negaitive. I haven't had a cystoscopy.
3202069 tn?1345408082 I get up several times to go to the restroom. I have been having alot of pain in my bladder and back and going to the doctor Tuesday. It is so hard to get motivated when your in pain. You don't even want to move. Part of the problme with the fibromyalgia is I get headaches because of the tension in the muscles in my neck.
1550149 tn?1340004330 In primary fibromyalgia (also called idiopathic fibromyalgia) the causes are not known, and in secondary fibromyalgia the causes can be identified. Primary fibromyalgia is the more common form. Many experts believe that fibromyalgia is not a disease but rather a chronic pain condition brought on by a constellation of dysfunctional biologic responses to stress. Such individuals are thought to be more susceptible to stress because of traumatic personal histories, genetic factors, or both.
Avatar f tn I also have chronic neck, back and hip pain. This has been going on for a long time now, over a year. I just live with the pain. I am tired throughout the day. I cannot sleep at night. I was wondering if all of this could be due to fibromyalgia?
Avatar f tn My neck creates a grating sound when I turn my head back and forth. I take a 300 mg. Tylenol 3, not more than twice a day when pain is really bad. I do have a problem with my left eye...pain above the eye, frequent tearing..diagnosed with blepheritis, roseacea, and the start of glaucoma. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
Avatar n tn Since that time in the past 8 weeks I have very bad pain in my neck, shoulders, and arms. I have some pain in my collarbone. My low back and hips hurt too. My legs ache, primarily in my knees, on and off but this has been the case for most of my life. I also have RLS on and off since the birth of my first child. I'm twitching on and off everywhere but primarily in my hands (thumbs) and usually after I do a lot of housework. Now, today my leg feels like it is falling asleep.
434278 tn?1324709825 My body lays down extra fascial tissue which creates more pain. I think for fibromyalgia there are certain pain points that must be tender in order to be diagnosed. Otherwise I would think they feel very similar.
Avatar f tn The issue that comes up is when my husband and I are intimate it causes me severe pain. We have tried different positions and techniques and they all cause some form of increase in pain.I will probably be in pain for the rest of my life and as much as I love my husband I dread intimacy. Sometimes I feel like if he truely loved me he wouldnt be willing to hurt me. I realize when we entered this marriage that this wasnt in the plans and it was very often and very good.
Avatar f tn My Physician beleives that i have FM and RA he took alot of tests thinking i might have cancer because of all the pain i have had for the last 6 months. every test he took it came back normal. I thought when u have FM u would have pain on both sides of the body for instance..

Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia by some doctors and Arthritis by other doctors. I have the symptoms of arthritis, swollen fingers, neck & back pain, hip pain etc....in other words...what doesn't hurt? I'm not into taking a lot of drugs. As of now I take Advil, seems to work the best. My body just aches all over, some days are worse than others. Any advice on natural cures?
Avatar n tn It could be related to female issues - Female pelvic disorders, or a matter of anything, just never know about the back. I have had and lived with, almost constant back pain for eon and eons and eons, since the age of 16. Sometimes it is so bad I'm am bent over like a pretzel. It doesn't take much to hurt the back and it is very prevalent among us humans, with back pain being the #2 reason that Americans see their doctor .
2126606 tn?1346348724 • Widespread pain • Extreme fatigue • Depression • Anxiety • Headaches • Tender points • Sleeplessness While the causes of fibromyalgia are unknown, many researchers believe the condition can occur from hormone imbalances that affect the central nervous system, as well as stress, illness or certain types of trauma.
Avatar n tn Taking deep breath causes pain. Entire stomach feels bloated. Lots of gurgling and grumbling noises all the time. Tender to touch. Relief: Eating up to 30 minutes then starts again.
875863 tn?1271606985 It lasts for as much as a couple days, where I am rendered bedridden, for the most part. It causes pain, but more an extreme weakness I cannot overcome. It seems to begin in the hip area, or lower back. There is no neurological damage, and I have been seen by a Rheumatologist, also, to no avail. MRI shows nothing. I've had about every test there is, with no results. Is it all in my head?????
