Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia in chinese medicine


Avatar f tn I'm new here and I haven't had a fibromyalgia diagnosis, but I have had muscle twitching all over (mostly in my legs) and that has died down quite a bit, but I've have tired muscles and I have been so tired. I get tender spots that hurt for no reason to the touch. This past Saturday I went dancing and almost didn't make it through the first song, my legs started to hurt so bad. I woke up the next morning and it felt like someone had beat my legs with a baseball bat.
Avatar f tn BOSTON (Reuters) - The slow, flowing movements of tai chi are better for relieving pain and other symptoms of fibromyalgia than conventional stretching exercises, doctors reported on Wednesday. The improvements continued throughout the three months of lessons for 33 volunteers receiving the movement and breathing exercises, study leader Dr. Chenchen Wang of the Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston said in a telephone interview. "Week by week they changed.
Avatar f tn I would definatly reccomend swimming, accupunture, and Chinese eastern medicine. Eastern/Chinese medicine is completley different then western medicine and has helped a lot! Hope this helps. I wish you health and happiness in 2010!

Avatar n tn The problem is so many people are having MS symptoms, but can't get an MS diagnosis. Many of these people have fibromyalgia & CFS symptoms. For those people who are in limbo land... there is hope because there are treatments available that are treating all of these conditions. Dr. Garth Nicolson already talked about mycoplasma & other infections in these conditions and that is one option.

The Huffington Post may promote a lot of quackery, but when it comes to influence in the media Oprah is the Queen of All Media. Unfortunately, given the infiltration of quackery into academic medicine, I’m having a hard time determining if Oprah is a symptom or one of the causes of the rise of pseudoscience and quackery over science-based medicine.

Fibromyalgia and CFS can be so intricate and can have so many different symptoms. Due to this, it is very helpful that MedHelp offers health trackers for us to utilize. We can track our progress and especially our flare ups. Below are just a few trackers that I find useful. • CFS/FMS Tracker - • Pain Tracker - http://www.medhelp.

Avatar f tn My doctor - who is actually a great physician when he can see something but terrible when he cannot see solid evidence - does not believe in homeopathy but I have found another world in homeopathic medicine. Instead of stopping the hydrochloric acid, I am taking digestive enzymes and garlic oil and slippery elm. I advise people to find a medical doctor who will let you try homeopathic treatments and find naturopath to help guide you through the options.
Avatar f tn The thoracic area ( t-4/5) are responsible for those areas and can give you heart attack like symptoms if pinched. The nerves from those areas run across your chest and into your shoulders. Chinese medicine calls t-4 the wind and heart tunnel for good reason ! I am on here because the symptoms have returned and I had become alarmed and wanted to read to see if anyone has had them as well.
Avatar n tn I also experience these weird pains in my head that come for about a second and then go and come back again every 10minutes or so. These pains are in 1 area in the back of my head in about a 1 square inch area.. Any ideas???
Avatar n tn Also, I have tried sleeping in different positions, in a recliner, everything except hanging upside sown....... no luck still go numb. When I have had a chance (Busy summer with my two kids, and work) I fell asleep around one in the afternoon, and then too........ I got numb in the hands!!!! It is very aggrevating!!! My clinic has seemed somewhat proactive with the MRI test and the carpal tunnel test, but trying to see a specialist or neorologist is like pulling teeth...........
Avatar n tn I am thin and athletic, take vitamins daily (a good multivitamin with minerals, Super B, Vit C w/rosehips, 1200 mg of calcium + D. I'm also on thyroid medicine (Levoxyl, .075) for hypothyroidism and my TSH is in range and I'm feeling great. I exercise: power walking, push ups, yoga stretches, an occasional run. Also, like some others here, I have Raynaud's syndrome (genetic: mother and brother).
604185 tn?1233964457 Well, my cold is still sticking around. Took some medicine tonight to help me sleep. I plan to check in at work tomorrow, but probably not stay all day since I am sure I will still be sick. I called my acupuncturist Nancy, and she still wants to see me Wednesday and says she can help. So, I will go see her as scheduled.

Avatar n tn It is getting much better and will soon go away completely with the help of Eastern medicine. Western medicine doesn't work for everyone and Chinese medicine can cure and treat symptoms that Western medicine cannot. Good luck!
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 n tn weird stuff like wet cement, the smell of baking,some unknown medicine.. sometimes they'll last for 6 months other times they're gone in a week. I have noticed them less often in the last year. My doctor thinks I'm nuts... I know what I smell. I don't have allergies of any kind and I'm in excellent health and I can learn to live with the smell of fresh baked bread in my nostrils.. I mean it could be owrse..
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar n tn I had a vibrating sensation on my left side and ended up having a cyst there. Maybe that was a coincidence, but at least it's something. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Sometimes it seems that it comes on later in the afternoon almost routine and then it sometimes happens out of the blue in the morning. I try to change my underwear twice a day and don't wear any underwear at nigh for bed. I'm not sure what triggers this...I know about 2.5 years ago I got a really nasty vaginal infection..Then it was treated and I've been tested for STD's all negative. I sometimes wonder if it came from the boyfriend at that time.
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 f tn For past 3 months I have been suffering the following-main symptoms seem to be pain in muscles (and occasionally joints) in arms and legs combined with all manner of weird sensory feelings pins and needles, numbness, muscles feeling like they have had Chinese Burn (swollen and tingling).

Avatar f tn Especially those of you that came up clean in your western exams. In Chinese Medicine, all these symptoms are valid and we consider it to be wind in the channel of the liver and gallbladder. When wind and heat mix in these two channels it can give one symptoms such as what i have described. If you also notice the symptoms all travel along the same routes as heart attack symptoms. So the confusing and fear of heart attack is real. Yet, not really happening.
Avatar n tn I can't nerrow it down to lack of oxygen or maybe diabeties because I've had high sugar levels in the past. However, its mostly during a change in the temperature cold/hot and mostly in my arms and shoulders and only if I move my arms or shoulders or if I stretch after a run or in the early morning cold weather.
Avatar f tn my blood numbers came back perfect for 4 months following ablation.I started to notice discomfort in both ankles, swelling and a sensation of burning. after 4 months I was put on synthroid. my weight gain has been constant, my eating habits are normal. due to pain in ankles it's hard for me to walk distance, or put any pressure on ankles, bending, walking,reaching etc. No pain pill has helped, elevating does not help.
Avatar n tn I think the doctor may prescribe BP medicine temporarily. In the mean time I have an appt with an Opthamologist to test the pressure in my eyes and I have a follow up with the Neurologist in a month. They wanted to rule out other issues with the blood test so Im sure the Neurologist knows what to look for. Sometimes Im not so sure about the PCP though. I would have thought he would have had my blood checked months ago. Thats why I'm persistant in my own medical care.
Avatar n tn I don't have any symptoms yet, except for my period being early once in a while. I am 44 years old, and have gone, in 2 weeks, from having 44 year old skin to skin of a 60 year old. Could someone please help? I'm very distressed.
