4861077 tn?1360159739 Unfortunately, they don't have a magic wand to stop all the pains, but they teach you relaxation, gentle exercise, diet, communication, and lots more. The one I was referred to ran for a 12 weeks with weekly sessions. If you are still at work, your hand problems may be due to repetition. There are lots of reasons why we get hand problems, and that is why should get your hands examined to find out if there is another cause.
Avatar m tn Following a good organic diet for borth migraine and fibromyalgia helps and avoiding stress. I have blackout shades in my home and NO FLOURESCENT BULBS!!! Warm baths are great. I've been watching some research at Stanford and hoping for success there. It's non narcotic and inexpensive. You can catch a youtube film about it by looking up stanford fibromyalgia. Good luck.
Avatar m tn I have been told for 3 years I have Fibromyalgia along with osteoarthritis in many areas; osteoporosis (I have lost 2 and l/2 inches in 3 years; fracture mode; every medicine I had been put on has been problems and I have been taken off all for Fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and arthritis. Now, my right eye is getting fuzzy, not every day, but more days all the time. My doctor has said although I need back surgery, be careful doing that because it will possibly make your fibromyalgia worse.
Avatar n tn Is there anybody out there that has been painfree for years that is not on prescription meds for fibromyalgia.
Avatar f tn I'm new here and I haven't had a fibromyalgia diagnosis, but I have had muscle twitching all over (mostly in my legs) and that has died down quite a bit, but I've have tired muscles and I have been so tired. I get tender spots that hurt for no reason to the touch. This past Saturday I went dancing and almost didn't make it through the first song, my legs started to hurt so bad. I woke up the next morning and it felt like someone had beat my legs with a baseball bat.
Avatar f tn Iam a mother with 2 young children and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 4 years ago. Since then I have been suffering with extreme pain that never lets up. I am curious if anyone else has ideas on which medicines work better for pain. I also suffer from depression and anxiety issues. I also have difficulty sleeping, I feel so alone, because neither my family or friends understand my problems. They think I do not really have medical problems. I appreciate if anyone replies!
Avatar m tn HI...I am working with a Dr on MedHelp for an exercise program for us!! As soon as I know it is doable I will let u all in on it... Now as for a diet, I have a few questions...do u know if u have a thyroid issue? were u checked lately for an autoimmune issue?How about Ehlers-Danlos? Do u ever have issues with IBS? Sorry for the questions, but they will help in answering ur question.
Avatar n tn I have the HCG shots and I do them five days in a row, my Friday injection is a double injection so it get's me through the weekend.
3202069 tn?1345408082 I go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain. I have tried many types of medicine to help with the pain. I take a muscle relaxer in the evening at times to help me sleep.
675329 tn?1297291978 Then there's the use of carefully selected vitamins and supplements, diet and regular, gentle exercise. It sounds like you are seriously missing out. I do hope, if your diagnosis is Fibromyalgia or something in the neighborhood that you are seeing a Board Certified Rheumatologist. They are the only doctors who specialize in and are likely to keep up with trends in Fibro. Your family or Primary Care Physician typically are too spread out to know enough to treat you effectively.
Avatar f tn I've tried everything- countless medications, light exercise when I'm not bed ridden, smoking pot, change in my diet, hell I even allowed someone who was convinced I had demons to perform and exorcism. The point is I am open to anything- just preferably something not too expensive as I am out of work. Has anyone else been dealing with this? What do you do to help with the pain? Or to help stay positive.
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 Try to learn to manage your fibro with diet, exercise (even if it hurts) and alternative medicine. I never abused my pills, I took what my doctor prescribed and never more but my body is physically addicted to these pills I've taken for years and years. I just finished detoxing at home and let me tell you it ain't fun. After years of taking hydrocodone/soma and various other pills for chronic pain, I was finding I was still in pain and I just didn't want continue my life this way.
Avatar n tn Since I've had Fibromyalgia, I have constant bursitis in my greater trocanter (hip bursa) as well as a constant inflammation of my SI joints. I receive shots in my hips every few months, sometimes monthly. I do the exercises given to me by my DO, however, I have only short term relief from the shots. I apply ice. I still have the bursitis and it won't go away. I never had any hip injuries prior or since to cause bursitis. Does anyone else have recurrent bursitis with their Fibromyalgia?
209591 tn?1267418314 Lyrica seems to be helping me with the nerve pain of fibro. I haven't been able to exercise at all since Nov due to a flare. But when I can exercise does help the pain. Nothing I have done seems to help the fatigue. I went to church this morning, then took a "nap" for 4 1/2 hrs. You just have to learn to pace yourself. My dr told me to vacuum one room at a time, not the whole house. One load of laundry, not spend all day washing & folding clothes. You get the idea.
Avatar f tn He has been able to manage it very well, but his diet and exercise along with medication has been very helpful for him. It will be a life long battle, but as long as you follow the doctors advice, some normalcy will come back to your life. Good luck to you. If need more information please let me know.
Avatar f tn Anyone know of any medications used to treat fibromyalgia that is safe to take while nursing? I have had a hard time looking these up on the net since your basics like lyrica and savella and cymbalta are not recommended. Not sure what to do. Dr wanted me to start savella and told me it was ok to take but my primary doctor who is also my babys doctor told me that it wasn't recommended.
Avatar f tn I hae been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and all that my doctor tells me to do is Exercise. Nothing is working and I was wondering ....can you tell me anything that would help with my fibromyalgia. Some of my symptoms are severe Fatigue, severe muscle soarness, headache, flu - like feeling. I already tried Lyrica and couldn't take it so could you tell me anything that I could ask my doctor about that maybe would help be to feel better??
Avatar f tn I think it helps the guys somewhat but REALLY helps my Fibromyalgia. It is a difficult diet to follow but you might be amazed at how much better you feel. I have come up with some of my own recipes so I don't have to buy the expensive GFCF foods. It is definitely worth trying for at least a few months to see if it helps you.

Avatar f tn So here are some natural methods to relieve the symptoms of Fibromyalgia Dietary Guidelines -The daily diet should include milled flax seed, 3 or more tbsp., or cold-pressed, unrefined flax seed oil. Flax seed and its oil contain the essential fatty acid omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid, which the body converts into hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins help relieve the inflammation of fibromyalgia.
Avatar m tn And i eat between a paleo and raw vegan diet but i'm going to try .The Okinawa Diet Food Pyramid but MINUS any grains and bread as their really bad for our insides period. And there's plenty of Asian food stores about so you can buy stuff like ''Purple sweet potatoes'' and anything else you need. Read up on The Okinawa people they live longer and healthier than ANYONE in the world.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
470168 tn?1237474845 Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (after 25 years) and have a son diagnosed as on the autistic spectrum. I am noticing that he is getting pain in/around his shoulder joint usually lasting for 24 hours. I started with the same symptoms. Does anyone else have both these conditions within the family and especially anyone with autism and fibromyalgia. On a different topic, I have had alot of success recently using dietry intervention.
Avatar m tn It is possible for even the worst of us Fibromyalgics to put our pain in remission with proper stress, diet, exercise and medication management. It just takes time and the right environment. Perhaps some cognitive therapy might be helpful? Don't give up. Fibromyalgia can be managed and improved.
1830047 tn?1321671393 The diet for migraine is different than fibromyalgia so I walk the fence and follow a modified diet that is organic and healthy. Hard to get exercise. I have no friends. My husband divorced me when I got sick and could not make money anymore. Try to keep a up attitude as much as possible. Researching Stanford Study for Fibromyalgia and Migraines.
