Fibromyalgia in shoulder

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia in shoulder


Avatar f tn This doesn't really sound much like fibromyalgia pain - that pain is typically widespread and not just in one area (although certain areas can feel worse at times than other areas). It also usually affects both sides of the body pretty equally. It sounds more like maybe a shoulder injury (have you fallen or stretched your shoulder at all? heavy lifting?) I could also be a pleuritic type pain (inflammation of the area around the lungs).
Avatar f tn fibromyalgia. severe pain under left rib. I was cleaning my kitchen bin and felt a searing pain under mt left rib, at the side. I'm now bed bound, unable to move without screaming in pain. Pain meds, including morphine, don't help. I have slipped discs in my lower back as well. It hurts when I breath. What could be the cause of the extreme pain I'm in? Having slept on my right side last night, I now have extreme shoulder pain. I do have a memory foam mattress.

Avatar n tn I can only turn my head to the left so far and I am getting pain and it goes up behind my ear and into my head could this be coming from my fibromyalgia? I have never had it there before. Mostly elbows and knees and shoulder sometimes.

Avatar f tn For the past 5 1/2 years I have had chronic pain in my arms, legs, shoulder and neck. Doctors have done MRI's, an EMG which showed a pinched nerve, a myelogram with a cat scan which showed a perfect spine and no pinched nerve. The pain is unbearable, I have headaches all the time, weakness in my left arm and shoulder, tingling and lightening bolt pains and spasms that shoot down my back and down my legs.
Avatar f tn Can Fibromyalgia only effect the left side of the body? For the past year my health has declined starting from my ancle, spreading to my foot and toes to my calf and up my thigh to my arm and hand up to my shoulder, now I have plursey.
Avatar f tn if you feel the pressure flaring up that goes straight up to your shoulder blade then its fibromyalgia. i had the same sign you currently describing. my email is ***@**** if you want to know how i am managing without drugs. send me an email. will be more then happy to share with you. god bless you dear.
Avatar n tn Please consult an orthopaedist and rheumatologist and discuss this possibility and start the treatment as your symptoms don’t relate to any other disorder but Fibromyalgia . Prostate problems and UTIs are more frequent in patients with Fibromyalgia . Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
358486 tn?1294779988 this leads to Fibromyalgia, but not in all the cases, of course. It is also noted that those who complain of more pain after the surgery, have more chance of developing fibromyalgia. One more reason thought to be implicated in post surgery fibromyalgia is ..... the neck is hyper-extended while doing the intubation and this constitutes a neck injury! Hope that helps.
Avatar m tn Following a good organic diet for borth migraine and fibromyalgia helps and avoiding stress. I have blackout shades in my home and NO FLOURESCENT BULBS!!! Warm baths are great. I've been watching some research at Stanford and hoping for success there. It's non narcotic and inexpensive. You can catch a youtube film about it by looking up stanford fibromyalgia. Good luck.
1184051 tn?1264438908 Hi I am new to this site, but my doctor said in I probably have fibromyalgia about a year ago. I had an MRI done today and it came back negative. My dr. had me have the MRI because of increasing fatigue, tingling body parts, headaches, major memory problems! Now I have to go to a neurologist. I just feel that I will have a bunch of tests and they will say they don't know or label me with fibromyalgia, but do they take it as a serious condition?
1033336 tn?1252509731 Following then onwards, I have experince pain trobbing at the back, in between the joint of knees, in between the hip joint, upper and lower both of the legs, at the joints of the arms, in between fingers, at the palm of hands and feet. Am i suffering from fibromyalgia? Do i need to do a full body check-up for diagnosis?
Avatar f tn I have Fibromyalgia and can only work three days a week with days in between and have to sleep 12 hours and two short naps during the days off. This year if I do too much during one day, my upper back spasms into a neck/shoulder pain spasm and causes migraine, and I am bedridden. The only thing that provides relief is a hot bath and codeine and 2 muscle relaxants and one gravol. It has only been that bad for one year.
Avatar f tn I would love to here from those of you with fibromyalgia. I'm sure everyone experiences this condition in a different wasy, but I am curious as to whether or not my symptoms line up with anyone else and whether or not it is worth the conversation with my neuro. my worst symptom is probably the cognituve issues. However, I am having difficulty in expressing this to my Drs who tend to write it off as anxiety or a "distracted" feeling because I hurt. I feel it is more than that.
769745 tn?1345750012 Weather Changes The Menstrual Cycle Troubles Breathing? Fibromyalgia Tender Points All fibromyalgia sufferers also feel pain in various tender points around their bodies. In fact, in order to be diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you must experience pain in at least 11 of 18 specific tender points. Tender points tend to be located at areas in the body where muscles and tendons join together.
3202069 tn?1345408082 Part of the problme with the fibromyalgia is I get headaches because of the tension in the muscles in my neck. I was hospitalized a few months ago with chest pains and they said it was because the muscles around my heart were tightening up from my fibromyalgia causing me to feel like I was having a heart attack. I have tried Lexapro, Cymbalta, Sevella, and numerous drugs but to no avail. Diet is the most important. Yeast breads, pizza, sodas and staying away from sugars and alot of carbs.
9532190 tn?1436468674 Intense burning from top of shoulder all through arm in to hand. I had this expierience the other night in bed and it scared me.I popped a few baby aspirins in my mouth for fear it was a sign of heart attack.
Avatar f tn I rec'd one in Sept. in my shoulder and one in Oct. for cervical area, this time the relief was very short lived and debating what next? I am a widow and live alone in my home of 20+ years. Thanks again for your assessment.
Avatar f tn Even a good rheumatologist in India, at best, in my humble opinion, will not be able to cure this suspected fibromyalgia. It is one of your children you are referring to, I take it, correct? Let's take this from a little deeper perspective. The symptoms you list in your post are indicative of a multi-systemic condition involving mental, cognitive,skin, digestive, urinary & muscular systems.
975514 tn?1325001538 I had a shoulder spur that was removed through surgery as well and I suffer from tendinitis in my shoulder and arm. In the past I have had tendinitis in my knees. I also seem to have something going on with my kidneys, but that hasn't been figured out yet either. I was diagnosed with TMJ, BUT my teeth grew in incorrectly and one of my wisdom teeth was missing on one side and the other tooth on the other side grew in with double the roots. It was almost as if the bones grew asymmetrical.
Avatar n tn Since I've had Fibromyalgia, I have constant bursitis in my greater trocanter (hip bursa) as well as a constant inflammation of my SI joints. I receive shots in my hips every few months, sometimes monthly. I do the exercises given to me by my DO, however, I have only short term relief from the shots. I apply ice. I still have the bursitis and it won't go away. I never had any hip injuries prior or since to cause bursitis. Does anyone else have recurrent bursitis with their Fibromyalgia?
Avatar n tn Also I had to be seen over the weekend once at a Urgent Care center and the doctor was concerned that Fibro could be what was causing some of my issues and said I needed to do a lot of testing. When I returned to my normal GP he basically laughed in my face and told me that basically Fibromyalgia was nothing more than a fancy name for something doctors like to give you when they can't find the source of the issues.
434278 tn?1324709825 , CTD, Fibromyalgia, Raynauds, Vitiligo, IBS (in the past) and have had Low B6 and low thyroid. I pretty much feel the way you did in your earlier posts. I hope since some time has gone by, that you are feeling better now. Low B6 was a freaky thing! That was the one that made me ITCH, have tinging, numbness, pins & needles, etc. Lots of nerve type stuff. Taking a supplement cleared that right up. Sjogrens will give you that mucus in your throat deal. Do you choke a lot?
Avatar f tn It's important to have the calcific tendonitis treated so your shoulder doesn't get so stiff as to result in frozen shoulder like my mother-in-law. Frequent cortisone injections can be damaging, and weaken a tendon. Physical therapy and help from a physiatrist (physical medicine and rehabilitation physician) can help.
Avatar f tn No one ever mentions diet...probably the most important factor in fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, arthritis and other similar health problems is "what are you eating?" There is a group of foods called the Nightshade Plants which includes potatoes, eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, including capsicums, cayenne and chili peppers, tobacco. These plants contain a chemical alkaloid called solanine which can trigger pain in some people.
Avatar f tn ❤️Today I'm trying not to feel so much pain. But my shoulder is hunting so bad!. Having fibromyalgia isn't the greatest thing in the world. My right side has more pain then anything & right now my right shoulder is in so much pain! And has between for about a month. Dr. Said it was bursitis but I know better it is something worse than that. So I'm trying to be strong till Monday for my appt.
Avatar f tn I had my gallbladder removed in 07. My burning R scapula still persists. It became so bad, I went to an orthopedic who told me I had a torn labrum and I had shoulder surgery. Once inside they found no tear, and just did a acromioplasty( feb 08). Now I have a frozen shoulder and a burning R scapula. My sx seem to be progressing as I now feel R sided trunk pain and a feeling of coldness into my legs, R>L.
