1336585 tn?1275709112 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.

Avatar f tn Hi there. The possible causes of fibromyalgia are physical injuries, emotional trauma, viral infections as if Epstein Barr may trigger it. Fibromyalgia is not a disease but rather a chronic pain condition brought on by several abnormal body responses to stress. Areas in brain responsible for pain react differently in fibromyalgia patients than the same areas in healthy people. The rhogam shot contains mercury known to cause autism in children.
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.
Avatar n tn Hi there. These symptoms could be due to various causes like cervical degenerative disc disease or herniated, damaged disc, chronic musculoskeletal conditions like fibromyalgia and multiple sclerosis. Consult a neurologist for a detailed clinical evaluation. MRI cervical spine would be required for ruling out spine conditions. Fibromyalgia is characterized by constant dull ache in muscles and additional pain on firm pressure to specific areas called tender points.

I had a stress test this morning, which was fine, although I did experience luq pain through to my back afterwards. I didn't mention it because I didn't think it was relevant, but the pain has persisted, so I'm wondering whether it's of any concern. I do have Fibromyalgia which confuses the issue. What do you think?
Avatar n tn The etiology is unknown; however, it is often precipitated by stress that causes localized artery spasm that interferes with the perfusion of oxygen in the affected areas. Pain results with associated symptoms of anxiety, fatigue, and inabilty to sleep because of the pain. There are no laboratory findings. The diagnosis is made after excluding rheumatic disease or hypothyroidism.
Monster Many patients with fibromyalgia feel that their joints are swollen, although there is no visible inflammation of the joints (arthritis). ### FIBROMYALGIA TESTS — There are no specific laboratory or imaging tests used to diagnose fibromyalgia. Thus, the diagnosis is typically based upon a thorough patient history, a complete physical examination, and blood tests, which are used to exclude conditions with similar symptoms.
