fibromyalgia

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!
1770280 tn?1314588560 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome back in the mid 1990's and was given amitriptyline for it a few years later. I went on a vitamin and supplement regimen which kept the pain to a tolerable level for four or five years. Then I started with Elavil/amitrip for about five years before that wasn't working too well and I was placed on Effexor XR. NOT a good drug.

209591 tn?1267418314 After informing him of my fear of hospitals, he put me on Levsin Sublingually and a liquid diet. For the first few days after the script, I was still unable to keep liquids down, nor the Jello I would eat. My blood pressure also sky rocketed and has yet decreased, staying above 140/95 sometimes as high as 160/100 with a pulse of 123. I have also lost a total of 9 pounds since November 27th.
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 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?
Avatar n tn I have had similar problems to your own and quite a fight with the medical profession in the UK where accepatable levels are lower than elsewhere (150-900 pg/ml). My b12 levels eventually became deficient as did my folate. The fact that my levels were always dropping was not thought important as I was within the acceptable lab levels and at that time I had no other hematological changes. I hope you get to the bottom of your problem. It would be nice to know how you get on.
Avatar m tn Hi there-I have RA/Fibromyalgia and my new DR. has put me on Methadone for the last 30 days- 2weeks 15mg then up to 20mg second 15days. And now I am realizing this is bigger than me in the physical addiction/w drawals senario. I was resistant n bitched ect. but he still gave me no other options of information about this drug. So wanting temp relief I did it. I have b4 been on 30mg/day of percocets for 2yrs. n had little problems getting off physically, mentally-none.
Avatar n tn com/ where patients review doctors, maybe there's a better one in your area. I live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, so I'm not familiar with US or UK doctors. Take care and I'm sure you'll get an answer from a doctor eventually ... I've learned with FM that one needs to keep pushing. For now, I would try and not worry about having an autoimmune disorder or FM until you've ruled out everything else.
86075 tn?1238118691 I read recently that the American version of the Mediterranean diet was doing people in. The traditinal diet featured whole grains and we had converted it to processed flour for pasta, etc. I think the Olive Garden was cited...Something like that, I skimmed the article.....
Avatar f tn It discussed the danger in putting a boy with autism on the diet because of the removal of casin (dairy) in the diet. I have been working with children with autism for over 10 years and have NEVER seen any difference in the child before and after they have been on the GF-CF diet. If you do decide to put your child on the diet, I would take some sort of data on behavior under the supervision of a Behavior Analyst.
Avatar m tn I observe a varied but moderately healthy diet. I walk and play badminton for exercise, and I also climb. Previous medical history includes Glandular Fever and resultant Hepatitis - however I cannot remember whether it was diagnosed B or C. This was approximately 10 years ago. The effects continued for around 2 years following diagnosis. Around 18 months ago, I began to feel very run down and generally fatigued to the point it was difficult to get myself out of bed in the morning.
975514 tn?1325001538 section_id=27670#sec_27670 I urge you to introduce yourself below and tell us a little about what brought you to the Fibromyalgia/CFS Forum. Again, welcome to MedHelp and the Fibromyalgia/CFS forum!
217229 tn?1192766004 right now -- not flying off the island just yet) - doesn't have a lot of knowledge about HCV, Fibromyalgia or Interferon TX --- connections. In trying to explain to him that I believe that the current pain I'm in is Fibro and I think that the TX I took may be the culprit --- I get a glassy eyed "sure hon" look. Here, take these pills --- call me in a week if you still feel uncomfortable. And he quotes that flu like symptoms and the other "MILD" symptoms should now be gone.
522415 tn?1242941355 We had a group meeting last year and the president of the UK Fibromyalgia group came along and told us she was now symptom free! But this is a diet that you will have to stick to for life. As your health improves you maybe able to slacken it a bit.
Avatar f tn In the UK this prescription is free. Fibromyalgia is a little more tricky but usually is identified by 18 points on your body by applying pressure to these points and if you score 11 you usually have Fibromyalgia. there is medication and treatment so don't worry non of these are life threatening.
958034 tn?1247076225 My neuro says Fibromyalgia during one visit, and then says it can't be Fibro the next visit, and then says maybe it's Fibro again! Here is a list of my symptoms: Loss of sensation in my hands and feet. (I burn myself and don't feel it). The left side is worse then the right.
Avatar f tn I saw a nutricianist who also is diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. She recommends removing all simple carbs from the diet ie. sugar, wheat, white rice, potatoes etc (and dried fruits to begin with). You can eat other complex carbs eg. oats, rye, quinoa, millet etc etc. (I did find out I have a gluten intolerance, which may/may not be relevant to you and I also have a dairy intolerance, but usually that is not the case).
Avatar f tn If there is no change then I will drop the diet. There is a university in Sunderland UK that tests urine to see if certain peptides are present. The theory being that if those peptides are present (when they shouldn't be), that these peptides are getting through the blood brain barrier and once in the brain can have a similar effect as opiates and that this explains some of the behaviours seen in autism. My son's urine came back positive for peptides for gluten and casein.
Avatar n tn E here in the UK and she can advise on diet and what blood tests can be done, im find myself limited in the UK on the blood tests as im NHS not private. My doctor dismissed fibro and said it was just a achey flu type illness and said i had too much bouts of pain for that, but i have read alot about it and it fits more then MS on some sx. So im under going more test soon got a LP and EMG at the london hospital in October. You never said if you had all teh above tests i had mentioned?

Avatar n tn Hi, I have been taking tramadol for 3 months now for fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. It really helps a lot. The only thing is...I believe it is the cause of my constipation the last few months. I have had to use laxatives on and off. When I try to go without, I get to day number six and resort to the laxative due to feeling so uncomfortable. Do you think that the tramadol is the cause and can I keep taking laxatives for a long period?

Avatar n tn Is it true, that if someone is diagnosed with subclinical thyroiditis and/or Hashimoto's Disease, a gluten-free diet can actually decrease and/or return the antibody count to normal? How and why? 2. Is it also true, that if someone has thyroiditis auto-antibodies, and takes a Celiac Disease test, it could cause a false positive result for CD. If so, how? Are there any reputable sources online to confirm the above? Have any of you experienced these changes? Thanks Everyone.
Avatar f tn When my condition first started I attended one of the most renowned doctors in the UK. Don't see him any more, no ins, can't afford it. Is it worth calling him after all these years ( about 20) and asking him to check out whether or not he tested for lupus? I don't care what this condition is called for myself, I'm so used to it now, but I just hope I haven't passed it on to my g/daughter.

Avatar f tn Your primary diagnosis ? Fibromyalgia/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/osteoarthritis Your current treatment ? several types of pain medications, muscle relaxers, sleep medication, and I also take tons of supplements. Is your current treatment working ? Yes, although I still have some pain it's nothing like it is without taking my meds. I have noticed that this disease has progressed since my DX. What type of physician is treating you ?
