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.
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.

Avatar n tn I have Fibromyalgia and now they are checking me for Cushings is there any relationship?
Avatar n tn My doc says that I have fibromyalgia and not to worry. But I have so many lumps throughout my body I do worry. I first noticed a few tender lumps on my right rib after having an ultrasound 9 months ago. (I thought the tech was rough but over time the pain gets better then comes back.) I have many more squishy tender lumps now.(I did notice that in both of my thighs they also had small bumps but now its more like a hard, tender rope.
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.

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.
2010625 tn?1329375656 I was just wondering what causes Fibromyalgia? Can Anxiety, Depression/Bipolar, IBS, or Genital Herpes cause it?
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 But if you're experiencing pain in your entire body, you should check with your doctor to rule out other causes, from fibromyalgia to neurological disorders or even infection, and also do whatever possible to reduce the stress in your life.
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 f tn Possible causes of FMS-related ischemia could be allergic hypersensitivity, toxins, stress, inflammation (from other conditions), or the fact that FMS involves nervous-system dysregulation.

Avatar n tn I am only 25 and have all the symptoms of fibromyalgia, CFS and MCS. I am unable to get out of bed some days but because of my young age my doctor is not seeming to take me seriously. He tests my thyroid and iron levels and many other things, but has not sent me to a fibromyalgia specialists. Also I have not been able to get disability cheques, so I am on government assistance:(. Does anybody more experienced have any advice for me? This can be quite stressful.
Avatar f tn There are different ways to down regulate nitric oxide, by removing or reducing the various triggers/causes of high nitric acid. One of them is comprehensive stress reduction. Another one is by increasing anti-oxidants through diet and supplementation-specially Glutathione! It is the master Anti-oxidant in the body and it acts as a recycler as well for other anti-oxidants such as vitamin C.
434278 tn?1324709825 The pain across the back of your shoulders is very typical of fibromyalgia. It is not uncommon for lupus patients to also have fibromyalgia. The one thing that seems to help with fibro is sleep. I take a benadryll and a melatonin to help me sleep. I'm not saying that you only have lupus. I was also told that all I had was fibro and deep don I knew I had more than fibro. I know people w/ fibro and they have never been as sick as I was.
Avatar n tn I do not have high blood pressure, diabetes or high cholesterol, no strokes or TIAs, and CADASIL (unlikely, no relatives with it). What else causes these brain lesions. Neurologist says I have too many lesions to be age related. They are multiple small foci of bright FLAIR signal in the subcortical white matter of both hemispheres in a relatively symmetric distribution. Thank you.
Avatar n tn The short answer is yes very likely . Stress induces muscle spasms-physical and emotional stress- Pain causes the body to go into a "bad posture" position. Should this take place multiple times a day, it creates the perfect conditions for muscle spasms. Add emotional distress-caused by all the physical suffering plus everything else that goes with mentally dealing with chronic disease- and you have enough causative factors to explain the severe muscle spasms.
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.

737030 tn?1257662720 There have been studies on what causes FM and they believe stress plays a role. Now, whether this 'state of high alert' sets off something that incites FM, they can't say. It is thought that some form of trauma can cause the onset, but they aren't clear as to how this happens. Genetics probably play some role in this. I had a period of time in my life where I ran full steam because of stress...feeling as if I was always on high alert.
1692515 tn?1306273648 I don't think doctors really know all of the causes for Fibromyalgia. Anything is possible. Very likely, as with me, you have had vitamin D deficiency, too. That was one of the reasons I was finally diagnosed myself. Since I know vitamin D deficiency has been noted as a root cause for why some people get Parkinsons, then I know vitamin D is important for neurological function. Also, be sure to have your vitamin B 12 tested.
Avatar f tn I have been on generic DARVON for 10 years for fibromyalgia flare ups which occur in sudden drops of outdoor temperature, wind, cold, and stress. Is there any one out there who takes this for fibromyalgia and can control their fibro or is there some other pain killer. Tried Lyrica, I got very sick.
Avatar m tn is this fibromyalgia? anybody else, with similar symptoms? I will be happy for your feedback.
10059661 tn?1407568770 Conditions that have been studied to see if they cause/trigger CFS include infections, immune disorders, stress, trauma, and toxins. Causes/risk factors for fibromyalgia have been loosely associated with stressful or traumatic events (such as car accidents), post traumatic stress disorder, repetitive injuries, illness (eg: viral infections), certain diseases (i.e: SLE, RA, chronic fatigue syndrome), genetic predisposition, obesity.
Avatar f tn The cause of costiocondritis could possibly be one of the underlying causes fibromyalgia, which by the way remains unknown according to conventional medical science. It is possible that this was the intended explanation, but in the attempt to oversimplify it, it actually came out wrong. Dr. Lowe from the Fibromyalgia Research Foundation supports the premise that most fibromyalgia patients are either hypothyroid or thyroid hormone resistant.
563582 tn?1217745983 What I dont understand is why they dont treat fibro with antivirals, and why they lie to us about what causes it!! I suffer from fibromyalgia and I was diagnoised a couple of years before that with Herpes!!! It makes me sick that they hide the truth!! They know alot more than they tell us and they can treat us. I have a ton of girlfriends that have admitted they have herpes, and im still hiding it from everyone, its embrassing! Oh and btw, im on valtrex and I cant live without it!!!!
