1023657 tn?1251848541 I am sorry to know that you are suffering from Fibromyalgia for 15 yrs. It is sad but true that the origins and causes of Fibromyalgia Syndrome are unknown. There have been many suggestions regarding the cause but a definite cause is still not known. Some studies show that reduced blood circulation into the muscle cells causes damage to the energy producing mechanism, which causes the deficiency of energy in muscle tissue.
Avatar f tn Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes pain and stiffness throughout the tissues that support and move the bones and joints. Pain and localized tender points occur in the muscles, particularly those that support the neck, spine, shoulders and hips. The disorder includes widespread pain, fatigue and sleep disturbances.
Avatar m tn and my teeth started falling, E-cod (for Omega 3 and Vit E), Rusvostatin (Cholesterol increases as a gift of fibromyalgia) Co-Q10 (antioxidant and energizing cells), Thyroxine (hyerthyroid another gift), Cobadex forte (multivitamine). I am active and leading normal life without pains. I study and experiment too. I feel that we should maintain good level of vitamins so that proper environment is there for glads to act and signal properly. Recently I found that my Potassium level has gone up.
Avatar f tn At this time, there is no "cure" for fibromyalgia - one main reason being is they have not determined exactly what causes fibromyalgia. There are many thoughts and ideas on it, however, nothing has been scientifically proven/discovered. There also are no specific blood tests, scans, etc., for diagnosing fibromyalgia = there ARE certain critieria that need to be met before a true fibro diagnosis.
7450908 tn?1390999921 I was diagnosed with fibro about 18 years ago. I've been using Lyrica & was using Cymbalta for a while as well. I quit using the antidepressant because it seemed to make the depression worse. I'm on low income & I'm telling this medication is getting so expensive that I have a hard time affording to buy just a months worth at taking one a day. At certain times of the year I have to take more than one a day. Is there a more natural way to deal with fibro?
Avatar n tn I was Diagnosed in 11/05 and it was with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. I went to a specialty clinic of Fibromyalgia & Fatigue Center www.fibro&fatigue.com There they did tons and tons blood work and physical exam and let me know I also had Fibromyalgia too. From all I read about it and of the few people I do know with it. It truely affects no two people alike! So Nancy: This is what I found on Cushing’s, and I think because some of the symptoms overlaps, a good Dr.
Avatar n tn does anyone know how long can secondary fibro last, my rheumy says that my cervical fusion in march of this year has caused all my pain and fatigue due to it being the cause of this secondary fibro. I did have a positive ana but the rheumy says he does not read much into ana tests.
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.
Monster The descriptions of fibromyalgia symptoms read to me like a newspaper horoscope: the number of symptoms described can apply to just about any ambulatory human being. The typical medications indicated seem to antidepressants and pain relievers. Please give us the Clif's Notes version of fibromyalgia and if diagnosed, what are the treatments.
Avatar f tn Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain. Fibromyalgia is more common in women than in men. Previously, fibromyalgia was known by other names such as fibrositis, chronic muscle pain syndrome, psychogenic rheumatism and tension myalgias.
Avatar m tn Are you on medication for hbv? I dont know if hbv causes fibromyalgia. But i experienced similar symptoms brfore starting v the treatment for hbv. 2 months after entecavir 0.5mg and vitamin d3 supplement (10000iu per day) i started feeling much better. However if you are on antiviral and you vitamin D levels are normal, then better to check with the doctor. These symptoms csn be caused by stress, anxiety, bad diet, less intake of water....
Avatar n tn Generalized pain can be a sign of rheumatologic disease, as well as fibromyalgia. The latter is a diagnosis of exclusion, and tests for rheumatoid factor and ANA level should be done first before settling on fibromyalgia. Regarding the sternal discomfort, musculoskeletal causes should be ruled out. A physiatrist (rehabilitation MD) evaluation can be considered if this is suspected. These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
Avatar f tn 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. Along with the muscle twitches and back pain And headaches. Im not sure if this seems like fibromyalgia or not?
Avatar f tn Hi to both. And welcome to the forum. Please ensure you know the potential dangers of long term use of Narcotic/Opioid class of meds, side effects, etc. You doctor may be too "busy" to forewarn you. Also same for GABA analogues. And should you be convinced it's the right one for you, read carefully the information and the warnings that accompany your prescription the first time you get it from your pharmacist.
Avatar f tn I would love to here from those of you with fibromyalgia. I'm sure everyone experiences this condition in a different wasy, but I am curious as to whether or not my symptoms line up with anyone else and whether or not it is worth the conversation with my neuro. my worst symptom is probably the cognituve issues. However, I am having difficulty in expressing this to my Drs who tend to write it off as anxiety or a "distracted" feeling because I hurt. I feel it is more than that.
Avatar m tn Any physical or emotional trauma can cause a flare up of fibromyalgia symptoms. It is best to seek a second opinion and have a discussion on the possible alternatives, especially conservative treatments if possible. In fibromyalgia medicines should always be used along with exercise and behavior therapy. Consult an experienced doctor. I sincerely hope it helps. Best wishes and regards!
1033336 tn?1252509731 Following then onwards, I have experince pain trobbing at the back, in between the joint of knees, in between the hip joint, upper and lower both of the legs, at the joints of the arms, in between fingers, at the palm of hands and feet.

2010625 tn?1329375656 I have been in pain for a month now, my psychiatrist put me on Gabapentin, and it does help some, but doesn't help with all of the pain all of the time. I am not diagnosed with Fibromyalgia yet, mostly because my medical doctor wanted me to go to a specialist, but can't right now due to lack of insurance. If it is not Fibromyalgia I am guessing it must be something like it....some kind of pain disorder anyways.....
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.

554442 tn?1221238825 Fibromyalgia (FMS or Fibro for short) is a chronic condition which causes widespread pain and fatigue as well as a variety of other symptoms. The name Fibromyalgia comes from "fibro" meaning fibrous tissues (such as tendons and ligaments), "my" meaning muscles, and "algia" meaning pain. Fibro does not cause joint pain or swelling. The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar n tn Since both conditions share similar symptoms, can an expert tell me if one can have both conditions at the same time, both are more or less the same, are interrelated... or if one has an elevated TSH, this is only a question of the thyroid gland and other endocrine " partners " ??? I appreciate all your possible answer.
Avatar n tn (2nd posting sorry I posted in the wrong spot at first) I don't know if I have fibromyalgia so maybe you can all offer some advice. I am 36 year old female. About 8 weeks ago I noticed my left arm was difficult to drive with and it really struck me as beign strange. It felt heavy. I thought it felt weak but looking back 'heavy' is a more accurate term. I went to my dr. who sent me to a neuro. By the time I saw the neuro I was conviced that I had ALS. Convinced.

Avatar f tn Ischemia: Cause of Fibromyalgia Pain? Saturday April 18, 2009 Did you know that some fibromyalgia (FMS) pain may be caused by low blood flow to our muscles? The medical name for that is ischemia (ih-SKEE-mee-ah). We've had some limited evidence of ischemia in FMS for a few years, and it's an area that researchers are pursuing.
