Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia in africa


Avatar m tn Very uncomfortable feeling, worse when I first wake up from sleep, but sometimes also all day long. Am I suffering from what is called fibromyalgia, does hepB cause this disease. I've already read that there are lots of other diseases that are caused by this terrible chronic illness.

1075109 tn?1281839291 So having listened to all of this it should come as no surprise that at 41, with a divorce in the works that I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia that keeps me awake for 36 hours at a time and then I get about 6 hours. Then we go for the 36 hours again. The pain has alot to do with it. It involves my neck, shoulder joints, elbows and hands. My hips and tailbone, my knees and ankles and the underside of my feet.
1075109 tn?1281839291 Having both of these chronic ailments I am obviously being treated with conventional medication. I am in South Africa and I have read about a lot of alternative therapy for the Fibromyalgia but I don't know how this will mix with my Bipolar Treatment. Can you help me understand this?

Avatar n tn You sound just like me and I have recently been diagnosed with Lyme disease + co-infections of Q Fever and Rickettsia in South Africa. I've been ill for 15 / 20 years and been wrongly diagnosed and treated until Feb 2010. Am now on 2 x tetracyclines for 7 days, then 21 days for treatment of fatty liver. The tertacycline is changed every month to accommodate co-infections and also different stages of the bacterial growth.
Avatar f tn I went back to my regular doctor and he gave me Xanax for the anxiety and decided it might be fibromyalgia and I was sent to a rheumatologist. The rheumatologist diagnosed me with xyphoidalgia, but I do not necessarily agree with that. The Xanax is helpful when I am having episodes that are exceptionally bad. It does calm me down and thus relieve some of the discomfort.
Avatar n tn Ok, my fiancee (age 29 and I am 30) is at home oversea in West Africa. I am trying to get her into the U.S. but the immigration says I did not make enough money so I've been seeking sponsor to help us out. She have had two kids for a rebel she dated during the civil conflict. The last kid she said at birth one eye couldn't open and pus was found around it but the kid eyes are now fine. Now, she's pregnant for me about 5 weeks on July 24. She has been feeling cold and then suddenly turns hot.
Avatar n tn As far as I know, the buprenorphine is not available for any extended type of maintenance, mainly because it's only in injectible form so far... in other countries it's in pill form and liquid drops used under the tongue.... family doctors there can humanely help people detox and simply write refills in tapering doses. So far, the latest news here seems to be that family doctors are presently being trained to dispense the 3 injections and that should come later this year.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar f tn Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end. Chica didn't get the extra pyramidal side effects (extreme restlessness, shaking and trembling) from the reglan injections that she got from the oral meds.
Avatar n tn There are a wide range of treatment options from clinics in Europe that gather data, to village treatments in Africa where ibogaine has been used for hundreds of years as a cultural initiation. There are doctors from the US who provide treatment in the caribbean just outside US boundaries and there are suppliers who give instructions for home treatment. There's alot to learn but the topic is fascinating and hopeful.
4648394 tn?1357561826 Hey Guys I'm 28 years old I'v also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia by 3 diffrent doctors and my Phishio . I live in South Africa and @ the moment they don't know anything about Fibro and treat it like the pain comes and goes.... My pain is exstreme and its so frustrating that people think you have a normal muscle pain but its much worse than that. NO one knows how we feel until you have Fibro yourself...

Avatar f tn Well, my left leg has had cramps all day because I have Restless Leg Syndrome, so I'm trying to be as still as possible. I have a headache the size of Africa, and being in charge of a noisey dorm is not helping it. My jaw and back are in pain, but I've sort of gotten used to that, it hurts like hell but its always been there. Tomorrow can't come fast enough, the stress from exams have made things a lot worse, but I'll be going to physio for a little relief.
892132 tn?1241332910 I'm a stay at home mom and house wife. My husband is an Oil Rig Manager and works in Malabo, Africa 28on/28 off. Me and Trent (our 2 yr old), "run the farm", 40 acres while he's gone. Trenton is ALL boy, loves his 4-wheeler, feeding his cows, and LOVES playing in water! He does like or need his sleep, he has always taken a lot of naps. He hates to eat "real" food, very stubborn about that. I cook and cook and cook and he won't touch it - most of the time.
Avatar m tn results normal. I also get the pains in my left and right chest and lower abdomen, but it always goes away. Eat light until it passes.
1550149 tn?1340004330 Curaphyte combines Devils Claw for a powerful one-two punch pain formula. Devil’s Claw Devil’s claw is a native plant of southern Africa (especially in the Kalahari Desert) Namibia, and Madagascar.It has been traditionally used an anti-inflammatory and analgesic. Devil’s Claw has been very effective in clinical trials to reduce pain associated with the lower back, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and fibromyalgia! No wonder it is a common ingredient in many joint formulas!
Avatar m tn Also had pain in hands and feet due to the cold here in Africa it is ussualy very warm always. Thanks Vanessa for your answers God bless you.
195469 tn?1388326488 Diagnosis should be made on the basis of symptoms and evidence of a tick bite, not blood tests, which can often give false results if performed in the first month after infection. Those who live or work in residential areas surrounded by tick-infested woods, or enjoy hiking, camping, fishing and hunting, or live in endemic areas are at increased risk for this disease. Human T-cell lymphotrophic virus-1 (HTLV-1) is associated with progressive spinal cord dysfunction.
Avatar f tn Your symptoms could certainly be due to fibromyalgia, but I wanted to mention that a new national research institute in the U.S. that is researching CFS/ME, fibromyalgia, autism and other illnesses... is also researching what they refer to as 'atypical MS'. Here is the link for that information if you are interested: Also, if you get tested for lyme disease...
Avatar n tn It was while renting a car in Florida when I was told by one of the guys about a product from Africa. It is called Prosit, it has a african herb in it that is only found in Southern Africa. I know that there are more products in the Prosit range that I have not tried, the capsules that I take have worked a miracle on my body. Click below: or www.africancures.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am so sorry you are feeling so awful. What concerns me is this some type of infection that you may have gotten while in Africa. Have you seen a doctor yet? I know you were going to check with the Embassy. Please do see a doctor asap... I am not a doctor but as the others have stated.. it sound like something you should not wait on...can you go the Emergecny Room of the local hospital? It would be wise to have a complete work up...
Avatar m tn I was treated by a psychiatrist in Launceston Tasmania while in the psychiatric wing of a general hospital. I had often been on the fringe of BPD, as I say above, a borderline zone, a limen as some historians call it, a border territory, a zone between normality and various behavioural extremes and eccentricities from my birth in 1944 to 1980. But in 1980 the symptoms were extreme and required hospitalization.
5817099 tn?1376924181 I don't think that's true you can't get Vitamin D in winter. I recently saw a program that traced the migration of humans from Africa, and one belief is that those who migrated north developed an enhanced ability to absorb Vitamin D even with cloud cover. I know of no evidence of people living in the north having higher rates of bone problems than those in the south.
Avatar f tn ) Yes, I am in South Africa. My parents and I have been considering seeing a naturopathic doctor for a while now. I'm unfortunately a boarder away from home, so booking appointments have to wait for holidays. When you said remission can be achieved by addressing the areas and systems that are affected, I just want to get it right quick, you mean it would be better to work on the areas that are affected individually? Instead of just taking the one medication that's supposed to help everything?
1290512 tn?1272061331 Hi everyone - I am a 41 year old mother of 3, living in South Africa. I had a headache 3 years ago with slight visual loss that would not respond to anything and eventually found myself in the emergency department. A CT scan showed raised intra cranial pressure which led to a lumbar puncture being done. The pressures were high but the pathology was normal as far as I remember.
707438 tn?1240963240 im having a bad day i just got a new job and my body isnt used to all the physical activity so im in a lot of pain and my doc is absolutely no help but then hes a quack anyway i have a better word for him but its not appropriate (sorry bout the spelling im not that good and i have no idea how to use my spell check on this site) for me to say here.
2068457 tn?1331882991 very traumatic for me - cold sweat and emotional wreck. He was in hospital for 3 weeks and finally made it home. He passed in his sleep in Dec 2011 three days after i got married. Since that day the strangest things have happened to me. I have always been healthy and sporty with no accidents or major injury. I had a full medical done and all is 100% except my cholesterol of 5.
