Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia headaches seizures

fibromyalgia

Avatar f tn I have a sneaking suspicion that I may have fibromyalgia. Here are my symptoms: headaches, stiffness, tremors at night (may or may not be seizures....going to neurologist to find out for sure) I have raynauds phenomenon, dont know if that is associated or not, tension in neck shoulders and back. Are these associated with fibromyalgia or could this be something else? I am afraid to tell the dr. I suspect fibromyalgia because if it is not that I want to find out what it is.
Avatar n tn hello i just bumped into this site & i hope to receive some very much needed information here. i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few months ago and i've been monitoring some of my symptoms but would like to see if anyone else has the same problems. every month when it's that time of the month is when everything gets the worse for me. my eyes are dryer, skin, mouth everything. migranes flare up, numbness in the face & i have trouble sleeping.
Avatar n tn I take topamax for seizures, and originally took it for migraines. I was told I could take my migraine meds for migraines, so I assume Tylenol is fine. I take Maxalt when I get a migraine. The doctor also prescribed a generic advil type med. Of course, I'm just another patient, not a doctor....

493978 tn?1209558218 I am pretty scared as I have never had seizures like I am having now. On top of all of this I have fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Avatar n tn Can you recommend what types of test one has to determine seizures etc.? I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, have severe Endometriosis and for that last few years have had extremely low white blood counts.
Avatar n tn and recently have been having seizures.....what exactly is fibromyalgia and how is this going to effect me long term....my doctor admits she doesn't know all the facts about this...please tell me what to expect and what not to expect and is all this related to having seizures and severe head-aches? = Fibromyalgia is a disorder understood better by rheumatologists than neurologists. Typically, one expects migratory joint pain, with "trigger points" that can activate the pain.
Avatar n tn I am a 49 year old woman I have had 5 big seizures in the past 5 years I have been to ohio state my local hospital and detroit and through many tests nothing has been found. I experience on a regular basis about a 4-5 minute starring seizure with loss of memory. Can stress do this to you? Or could the bone spurs in my neck do this? Iam at my wits end with no answers, and my fear is this will continue with no answers Iam afraid to go anywhere for fear I will hurt myself or others.
Avatar f tn I am a 44 y o female. I had an MRI on Dec 15, 2014. The report states I have a benign choroidal fissure cyst on the right. Tiny focus of hyperintensity in the right frontal white matter on axial FLAIR is nonspecific and has not changed since June 2012. There is no acute intracranial hemorrhage or mass. No mass effect or extra-axial collection. No acute hydrocephalus. Major intracranial flow voids are preserved.
Avatar n tn My mom started having focal seizures almost a year ago. She has been experiencing headaches almost daily since then. They are not real bad and if she takes Tylenon, it seems to control them so they don't get bad. She said they usually start on the right side of the head and then goes to the left side. We have asked doctors about this but do not get any answers. Could these headaches be from the seizures she is having?
Avatar f tn The seizure medicine Depakote (valproate) is approved for use in preventing headaches and might be the first choice when both headaches and seizures need treatment. Other medications often used to prevent headaches include beta-blockers such as Inderal (propranolol), calcium channel blockers such as verapamil, and Elavil (amitriptyline).
Avatar f tn Results of a research study on a drug normally prescribed for people with certain types of seizures are in. 150 women and men diagnosed with fibromyalgia were taking Gabapentin at doses of 1,200 to 2,400 mg daily for 12 weeks and those taking the medication reported less pain than those taking placebo. They also reported significantly better sleep and less fatigue. NIAMS Director Stephen I. Katz. M.D., Ph.D.
