Fibromyalgia headaches sleep

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia headaches sleep


Avatar f tn Begin by describing where the pain originates from. Then describe the headaches. Explain how you don't sleep. Sleep is essential especially for fibromyalgia or any type of pain. If you can get 6 hours minimum you can better deal with the pain. Have you ever had a sleep study? I requested one and I have sleep apnea. I also take trazadone. It is an older sleep medication that is taken at bedtime. You and your doctor can decide if taking something would help.

415098 tn?1214860436 This is a disease entity which is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning that other organic and more common disease conditions should be ruled out first (such as spine problems or musculoskeletal problems) before making this diagnosis. Fibromyalgia are somewhat correlated with our inability to have a REM sleep (rapid-eye-movement sleep) which makes us feel unenergized and tired even the first minute we wake up.
1184051 tn?1264438908 My symptoms are Headaches, Fatigue, widespread pain, and sleep problems. I had every test that you could think of. They all came back negative. Alot of doctors don't take fibromyalgia serious, but then on the plus side alot of them do. I have been lucky enough to find a doctor who takes fibromyalgia completely serious. I live in Kentucky, and I see a doctor in North Carolinia. With the correct treatment, you can feel better. - I hope everything works out. Good luck.

Avatar f tn I like you had all the tests, MRIs never showed the excruiating shoulder blade pain I was living with or the bone crushing lower back pain, i have the gamut of symptoms sciatic pain, the joint stiffness, the lack of sleep, skin sensitivity, headaches, leg weakness. Let my story be a tale of caution to you as you navigate finding out what is causing your pain.

3202069 tn?1345408082 I take a muscle relaxer in the evening at times to help me sleep. I get lots of headaches and have what they called fibro fog. I get up every morning which is late morning for me and soak in a warm bath. I also eat something light like oatmeal, cheerios or a couple of scrambled eggs and take my pain medication. then when that kicks in I stretch, pray and try to move around, My bladder bothers me too since I have Interstitial cystitis. I get up several times to go to the restroom.

1550149 tn?1340004330 Physical injuries, emotional trauma, or viral infections, such as Epstein-Barr, may act as triggers for the onset of the disorder, but none have proven to be a cause of primary fibromyalgia.

Avatar m tn I started taking Trazadone for sleep and it is giving me headaches. I cut it from 150 mg to 75 mg and that helped some. Will the headaches eventually go away?
Avatar n tn Sinusitis, refractive errors of the eye, migraine, cluster headaches, brain tumors, high blood pressure, tension headaches, temporal arteritis, pinched cervical spinal nerve, poor or disturbed sleep etc are several causes of headaches. Dental pain and ear ache can cause similar symptoms. It is difficult to diagnose the cause of headaches and body-aches on net. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Take care!
Avatar f tn The medicine I'm on is making it hard for me to get to sleep at night. I fall asleep, but not as easily as I should and then I never reach a very deep sleep. It's like I'm always aware of what's going on through the night-in a very light sleep. Then I'll toss and turn most of the night. Does anyone have any non medication suggestions for sleeping better? I tried Lavender oil last night (On my pillow) and I actually think it helped a little. Any other ideas?

Avatar f tn I take oxycontin 20 mg daily, zannaflex for muscle relaxations, ambien, melatonin and seroquel for sleep, synthroid for hypothroidism, I tried the new lyrica and it works for about 3 days and they the side effects such as terrible swelling and headaches are just not worth it. I tried taking the lyrica 3 different times all with the same result. I so frustrated I could scream.
Avatar m tn You might have it in certain parts of your body and can't even be touched. It's my understand that people with fibromyalgia experience headaches and topamax is used to treat headaches. I don't think topamax is necessarily used to treat fibromyalgia specifically but I could be wrong. It's just how it's been explained to me. I can tell you it works. And a fabulous side effect is weight loss smile.... If that's something you need.
209591 tn?1267418314 I take Fiornial/codiene, which helps a lot. I take them when the headaches wake me up, go back to sleep and they are usually gone later. I tried so many drugs for migraine, can't even remember them all. Pamelor I remember, but don't think it helped much. When I got the migraines I would use ice for the first day and then got a steamy towel on a heating pad. It sure felt better, didn't take the migraine away, but I was much more comfortable.
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 take Elavil which really helps me sleep deeper. I am taking Neurontin for the jumpy nerves, headaches and pain. I use two body pillow to sleep around my body. They help to keep the pain from the bursitis down. I have had the injections and my doctor does not recommend the draining. The reading I have done suggests the draining never works. I also have osteoarthritis. I have had it since I was 20. Good luck everyone.
1943833 tn?1349280189 I have wondered often over the last few years if I have Fibromyalgia, but have never asked a doctor about it because I don't seem to have the tender points. I'm wondering how many of these symptoms are "common" for fibromyalgia. Or maybe CFS? -occasional severe sensitivity to noise. I can be sitting in a room, with people around me and noises I would normally not mind (kids playing, etc) will "hurt". I don't really have a headache, and it's not an actual pain.
Avatar f tn I really just want to know if fibromyalgia always comes with headaches, because I don't have headaches. A few years ago, the neurologist who treated me for RLS thought I might have fibromyalgia, as I am so tired. I didn't think anything of it at the time, because I have no headaches.
Avatar f tn Recently the symptoms have been lasting 2.5 weeks. I feel extremely nauseaus, tired, headaches, sore burning eyes, and the worst is the pain in my body. Mostly the pain is in my lower back and neck, but my entire body hurts. My symptoms are the worst at night, and sometimes earlier depending on how much I have exerted myself. I still have an appetite, and eating does not seem to change the nausea or other symptoms.
