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.

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.

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 n tn Hi Angela, As a fellow Fibromyalgiac, I have to say that some of what you listed as symptoms just baffled me. I've been living with it for almost 10 years now...and for the record, I can't stand it when someone says "you're fine" but insists on turning you into a walking pharmacy. But while they are not "Fibro" symptoms, it doesn't mean that everything is fine.

Avatar n tn there is no such thing as fibromyalgia. this word has been invented by doctors to mean "we don't know what is wrong with you". what you have to do if you have this "illness" is get all of the requisite tests done. i.e. neurologist etc... etc... after you have ruled everything out - do NOT accept fibromyalgia as a diagnosis. The drugs are a total waste. Do the following only after you have ruled out more potentially troubling causes: 1.

Avatar f tn A Neurologist at the Cleveland Clinic told me that difference between Fibromyalgia and MS is that MS causes brain damage and Fibromyalgia does not, but other than that the symptoms are the same. I have been diagnosed with both and then told they weren’t sure if I have MS. I do believe that Fibromyalgia flares are similar the MS Flares. I don’t particularly care if I have one or the other because they both suck.

Avatar f tn I have been told that I have Fibro, Does anyone have a problem with knees 'locking up' with such intense pain that it causes you to faint. Also, I have sensitivity to light and sound. Very weak - tired beyond belief and it's not letting up even with cymbalta and lyrica medication. I have meniere's (bi-lateral) and also very dizzy at this time. I am so discouraged - can't go anywhere or do anything, Way too lighth headed to drive a car. Can anyone relate to these symptoms.
1075109 tn?1281839291 Better to ignore these labels and deal with whatever the real underlying problem is. Fibromyalgia is a collection of symptoms without a known cause, though there are a lot of theories, and I have mine, but it usually comes with emotional difficulty of one kind or another, usually anxiety and depression. If it's hard to treat, a hack psychiatrist will call it bipolar 2 when his treatments fail, as of course they very well might if the underlying cause is fibromyalgia.

Avatar m tn It can cause a lot of weird symptoms like what you describe because it causes malabsorption, causing malnutrition, and you can then develop other autoimmune diseases. If you have celiac and stop gluten, most of these symptoms should resolve, some faster than others. Try magnesium 500 mg in the morning along with vitamin D3 2000 IU in the morning and 400 IU calcium at night.
10059661 tn?1407568770 It's not the Graves or Hashimoto's that causes the eye issue, it's being hyper, just like it's being hypo that causes the symptoms of Hashimoto's. You do want to make sure you're getting the proper diagnosis. It's rare, but there are those that have both, Graves and Hashimoto's.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am 50 yrs female 1991 was diagnosed with. ankylosing spnondylitis, & sacroiliitis. and I also swear i have fibromyalgia also ..after all my life of pain, it finally was given a 'name' But ever since 5 yrs ago the pain has gotten much worse and so unbearable, have had sciatica few times..and now for 1 1/2 yrs have had the most severe stiff neck that won't let me turn in either direction without pain..which limits my driving due to lack of mobility in my neck.
Avatar n tn Does anybody get numbness with their fibromyalgia? If so, please can you explain where you get it and how long it last for? Do you get any other symptoms with the numbness?

Avatar f tn These symptoms could be fibromyalgia or could be any number of auto-immune issues. Please see a rheumatologist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.
Avatar f tn The symptoms of FM overlap with those of many other illnesses. The diagnosis is that of deduction. For instance Lyme disease and FM are very similar, so is thyroid dysfunction and FM etc. You need to see a doctor and make sure you are tested and rule out everything else.
