Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia images

fibromyalgia

Avatar f tn I posted my intro here yesterday, so I won't go into all my details, but after 2-3 years of odd symproms and random/chronic muscle pain my neurologist has suggested that I have fibromyalgia. She said I should discuss it with my famil doctor at my next appt, which is in July. Both doctors have run me through countless tests to rule out other neuro and autoimmune diseases including MS. My family doctor really felt like I may be depressed.
Avatar n tn I am a 55 year old female diagnosed with fibromyalgia in 2000. I have tried different meds for this but have the chemical sensitivity that sometimes goes along with fibro. I currently am taking only Synthroid for hypothyroid and multivitamin, CoQ10, 5HTP, and niacin, and occasion Lorcet Plus for pain. Other than the fibro, I am in good health. No migraines, no high blood pressure, no diabetes, etc.
Avatar f tn I am a 40 yr old female with PMH of fibromyalgia. I have had a lot of strange neuro symptoms the last few months: numbness, tingling, memory loss, migraines, blurred vision, severe depression, personality changes, etc... Was referred to a neurologist. Neuro exam quoted as "normal". Labs and MRI brain and c-spine orderd. Phone call from nurse two weeks later: Vit D was very low at 8.2. Was started on 50,000u 3x week for that.
Avatar f tn In the mean time, I consulted an Orthopedic who gave me 10 injections of Vitamin B and told me that I am suffering from “FIBROMYALGIA”. I took 20 sessions of physiotherapy which included IFT and US therapy. He asked me not to take too much stress, sleep properly and so on. There after I tried to follow what ever he said but pain was still there and was getting worst day by day.
894326 tn?1279787685 unremarkable on the sagitlal images. c3-c4 posterior disc bulge with tiny central disc herniation and facet disease causing mild ritht foraminal narrowing. c4-c5: Posterior disc bulge with a central disc herniation and facet disease causing mild spinal stenosis at this level. Foramina appear patent. c5-c6: Posterior disc bulge with a central disc herniation mildly indentinting the ventral cord. Mild spinal canal narrowing. Foramina appear patent.
Avatar n tn I have been tested and have Fibromyalgia. I get migraine headaches all the time. On a recent MRI this is what the findings were. Can you tell me what you think this means. Findings from the MRI report - there is no evidence of intracranial mass, hydrocephalus, or midline shift. There are a few scattered foci of increased T2 signal in the periventricular white matter of both frontal lobes. There is a single focus of increased T2 signal within the left temporal lobe.
Avatar n tn All I know is everyone I've met who has been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, including three R.N.'s, are all in some serious pain. They also get dizzy sometimes and have a lot of symptoms that CFS patients' have.
Avatar m tn I was immediately scheduled for an open MRI and to have those images shown to my primary care provider who couldn't make heads or tails about the pictures, but it was serious enough to refer me to the base neurologist. After a couple of brain scans, battery of coordination and memory tests, and the dreaded lumbar puncture (spinal tap), nothing could not be found except a positive reaction to an retrovirus in my bloodwork that could be causing this condition.
Avatar m tn Does any one have the same thing happen to them .... I dread these images ... I never have dreams about this and only happens when I am awake and see Family drive off ...
497513 tn?1216845690 I was later diagnosed from the injury with fibromyalgia, Chronic myofascial pain, depression, and Chronic fatigue syn and whip lash. Recently had an MRI of my brain to see if I developed damage. Actually they should of done this months ago. I don't understand the report. There are 3 nonspecific punctate hyperintense foci seen on FLAIR images, one in the right side of the pons, one in the right corona radiata, and one in the left parietal white matter.
Avatar n tn SO.... I went and told the doctor if I could get a copy of the MRI's and see the famous 'UBO', and he agreed. So I found the localized images for my study in the file, and what I think I see/ I saw... does not look like the "UBO's" I've seen on other MRI's which look like white blobs. What I seem to show is ..... all over the place, and more like a 'blob', looks like someone spilled something all over the top of my brain....

Avatar n tn Findings: Punctate hyperintensity on diffusion-weighted images in inferior midline cerebellar vermis with apparent restricted diffusion on ADC map.
Avatar f tn I am a 33-yr-old with chronic pain and chronic fatigue. MRI scan today was to follow up on possible seizure activity viewed on EEG during sleep study (polysomnography). I have not spoken to my doctor, but my father (a radiologist) insists that all of the images look "normal". I am not feeling so confident. Can anyone please give me some feedback on this image, PROP T2 TRF?
Avatar n tn Then it would depend on whether the double vision was horizontal (double images side to side) or vertical (images ontop of one another). If the images were just blurring then it would be less worrisome as many patients with fibromyalgia have these complaints. Currently, the diagnosis of fibromyalgia is sort of a catch-all diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I thought most saw two images when looking that far. Well, he told me I could go see a neuro -ophth. and maybe even consider surgery for my weak eye muscles. But, I decided to wait. I was also told about the possibility of having MS. So, over the months a new problem developed and I started seeing splotches on my computer screen when I'd look at a white background. Also when I'd wake up I'd sometimes see distorted colors on images.
Avatar n tn Had an MRI because of cluster headaches, migraines, Facial Pain and I am also having other symptoms, such as weakness and fatigue muscle aches etc... I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2006, recently my symptoms started progressing. I swtitched doctors and the Doctor I see now did an MRI. Could you please explain to me what the findings of what my MRI mean. I do go to the Neuro on May 11th.
Avatar f tn I have Fibromyalgia, RSD, myofacial pain syndrome, and chronic upper back pain. However, my ortho dr had me get a bone scan to see if anything else was wrong with my back since I always have severe chronic upper and middle back pain. Well he showed me the images today on the bonescan and my spine was straight from the top and the middle but at the bottom of the spine, it curved alot to the right. He wants me to get an MRI now to see what if anything is wrong.

1466643 tn?1286343146 There are several small foci of T1-weighted decreased signal intensity within the subcutaneous tissues of the upper neck and suboccipital region varying in size from 3 x 3 mm up to 9 x 7 mm. These are seen as decreased signal intensity on both the T1 and T2-weighted images. These do not have the appearance of a lipoma or cyst. These may represent connective tissue tumor including neurofibromas. It is difficult to determine with certainty if there is enhancement of these lesions.
Avatar m tn I'm having symptoms of both legs numbness, tingling, heaviness, weakness, MRI shows spinal stenosis from L-3 to S1. The pain is worse than my fibromyalgia pain. My surgeon said he'd do surgery, but it may cause more pain, and I should wait til I start losing the use of my legs. Is this the best option?? From what I've read surgery can be successful. There soesn't seem to be an answer for what's causing it..no steroid use or spinal pain before now. I don't know what to do. Surgery? or not?
Avatar m tn Hi there! A damaged intervertebral disc and spinal canal narrowing should clearly be evident on a CT/ MRI. It would be a difficult situation to comment on without having had a look at the images or the relevant clinical details. I would suggest getting this evaluated by an orthopedician and a rheumatologist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Hope this helps. Take care!
1415565 tn?1282056499 The doctor I had at that time just blew me off. Since then, I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and trigeminal neuralgia, along with a host of psychiatric labels such as somatoform, anxiety, depression, etc. I am having a lot of symptoms lately and cannot even stand going to work right now. I just remembered this mri report from 2005 and am wondering if I should ask my doctor to pursue the possibility of MS just to be sure.
Avatar f tn These findings are also compatible with MS. The diffusion weighted images are unremarkable. The signal flow voids of the visualized intracranial vascular structures are unremarkable. White matter disease vs MS. MRI with contrast is suggested for futher evaluation. I have had 2 w/wo contrast since this one in 07/07. I have to get the reports for both before I go back to him next thursday.
Avatar f tn Thank you for answering. I am 55 years old. No history of diabetes or hypertension. I have had numerous blood tests, and MRI to rule out MS, lupus, diabetes. Everything came back O.K., except Rheumatoid Arthritis showed up low to moderate level.
Avatar n tn What is the difference between OCD and depression? Are they one and the same or two different disorders? I also have Fibromyalgia and I can live with the chronic pain and fatigue, but I can't live with the pain of depression.

892215 tn?1389722306 That, as well as Fibromyalgia. Discuss this with your doctor; he might run blood tests, if he hasn’t done so already to rule them out. Now, you still might be crazy, but that’s going to be *another* doctor, LOL!
880900 tn?1467273741 Tramadol, Tylenol with codeine (very low dose and only occasionally), and I'm being treated for the arthritis with an antibiotic/cortesone shot once every three weeks for the next year.. Almost 30 years ago, while teaching stage fighting in a Drama class, I got punched in the left eye, and the vision there has deteriorated to almost nothing over the years.
