fibromyalgia

Avatar f tn I am a 32 year old female from Delaware who was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 9 years ago.
Avatar f tn Were you ever on antidepressants or any medication that would effect dopamine, serotonin or norepinephrine levels, prior to being dx'd with Fibromyalgia? If so, what was your age and approximately how long did you stay on the medication. Thank you for your response to this poll. Have a nice day.
Avatar n tn If you want to share with others who have fibromyalgia, you can check with this site on medhelp, search for the fibromyalgia forums... if you mean a prayer support group, i have not searched for one online, maybe someone else may know of one... but i will gladly keep you in my prayers. Don't give up, keep the faith.
Avatar n tn I have fibromyalgia and that causes a low tolerance of any kind of alcohol. I especially had trouble with beer and red wine. I would be sick right away and for many days after; vomiting and headache was the worse part. Save your money Don't drink alcohol. I used to have a great time watching everyone else act like a fool and I could remember everything the next day too. I had the important job of driving everyone home after partying. I'd rather keep people safe than be puking for many days!
Avatar f tn I have HORRIBLE BACK PAIN, Crohns Disease, fibromyalgia and some other painful female problems! I was in a automobile accident 5+ yrs ago & blindly went to painmanagment! I was jus on 240 pills 30mg -dropped me to 180a month but when I tried to fill my script they said DEA IS IN FLA AND TAKE 90PILLS for the month or NOTHING AT ALL SO I drove everywhere and NOBODY'S TAKING NEW PPL AT THE PHARMACY.......
250084 tn?1303311035 }. Walking is difficult at times. Could this be signs of RA? I don't know much on RA and will be looking up info., but many here have it, deal with it. What test is run for this? Also do know tx can affect the bone marrow. Time to check that out? Yes, I'll be asking my Dr., wanted some input from here also. Taking Vicoprofen, but don't want to get into taking much. Any OTC pain relief for this that is safe on our liver and WILL work? Thanks ahead for any input.
Avatar f tn I never planned on having any more children. I have fibromyalgia and take medicine so I always said I couldn't have any more children cuz the pain would be hard for me to be caring for another child especially at my age. But God had other plans for me. I was so shocked and numb when I found out but now im happy but this pregnancy has been very hard on me. On top of having fibromyalgia. I have had allergies since I got pregnant called Pregnancy Rhinitis. I had a sore throat for over a month.

1259963 tn?1284488560 I have high levels of pain too with my CVID. They try to claim fibromyalgia but it just doesn't fit. I used to get the headaches after my infusion but now the nurse gives me 50mg IV benadryl, IV fluids during the infusion and slowed down the infusion rate just a little and no more problems afterwards.
Avatar n tn the last couple of days I have started with twitching all over my body mostly in my feet and legs and a vibrating feeling in my legs Im freaking out about ALS but could this be fibromyalgia? my body is sore from all the twitching and pain twinges! Im a 26yr old female any advice!
620060 tn?1235519391 Now I don't think I can keep the hours up, and I'm making the majority of the income for our family of 5 right now. What do you do about bosses who don't understand. They make jokes about my pain, and fibromyalgia. I laugh it off but it really hurts my feelings. If they could just feel this for one 24 hour period, they'd never do it again!!!
1713150 tn?1314470942 Hello yes it is hard at the beginning of your diagnosis. If you were like me I was just plain overwhelmed in 2009 when I was finally diagnosed. If your symptoms are caused by inflammation they should go away. Heat does cause more problems. Otherwise if you are like me you learn ways to live with symptoms. I try to relax about my cognitive issues. Getting stressed about them makes them worse. I just do not worry that I can't find words or remember names. I make lots of notes to remember things.
182493 tn?1348056515 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in August. I have been doing TONS of research on Fibromyalgia. Those of you that know me well know that I can research the hell out of something if I set my mind to it. Well last night I am laying in bed reading my newest book on Fibromyalgia. And I get into the ''causes'' section. Those of us with the syndrome know there isn't ''one'' cause for everyone with it. So in this section, I read that a cause of Fibromyalgia is... listen to this.. DRUG WITHDRAWAL!!!
773166 tn?1235303830 I know there is a physician who frequently sees fibromyalgia patients because her sister had fibromyalgia and then leukemia. Her sister also died from cancer. There is a link between pathogens and cancer.... we have some of that info in our health pages (I believe... I'm brain-fogged !) Glad you found this place and I hope that you will stick around.
Avatar n tn Sorry I have to crack jokes to deal with how crazy I am feeling with all the meds blood work and so on. Anyway they are doing the best they can. I do have to appreciate that. So I will just be patient.
Avatar m tn It's like they don't think I've done enough to help myself and also my problems have been treated flippantly and even used for jokes at my expense. Now this friend has had fibromyalgia for Yeats and the symptoms have become progressively worse including having to leave the workforce because of it.
237053 tn?1258832026 YES, yes, & yes. I get "burning sensation" as well as prickly, bug-biting, stabbing, vibrating, and crawling sensations...any & everywhere! This is definitely the Fibro talking! I just make jokes anymore....well, "my bug's biting me again;" "my face/feet are on fire again;" or "that phone I ate is going off again (vibrating);" etc...LOL! Makes it all easier to cope with anyways!
Avatar f tn I tried very hard to make humor out of it...makes it a little easier. Just posted several jokes about diahrrea on my FB last nite...which actually had me laugh out loud; Like 'spank me (if you dare!) or '"hence forth all my jokes wil be ******" BTW; a number of OTC's are cheaper on drugs.com. TENS:The equipment is an RX item - and you have life time free repair. See web site: www.EMPI.com . Same electrodes are also used to control parkinson and other symptoms of the brain..
Avatar f tn I am 2 1/2 years post tx and have come to accept that I will never feel like I did before I started having symptoms. I have fibromyalgia, insomnia, hypertension, high cholesteral, gastritis, dry eyes and skin, re-occurring depression, and some loss of cognitive abilities. Right after tx I had gallstone pancreatitis and nearly died. I have a supportive doc who is working with me to try to correct all of these issues and I think that slowly we are getting them under control.
Avatar f tn I have other things going too, like degenerative disk disease, fibromyalgia, circulation issues, ... so I take a lot of medicine. I have caught a couple of pretty freaky infections in the past several years that layed me down-in the hospital for weeks, and more self administered iv antibiotics at home. Hepatitis C does affect your immune system... How could it not? I've never had anyone say, nor have I read anywhere that hep c doesn't affect your immune system. Maybe in the very beginning...
Avatar f tn Sorry to hear about your apparent intolerance to this new medication. I hope things get better for you and soon. btw.... are you taking fish or flax seed oils (omega 3 fatty acids ?).. that may help.
Avatar n tn My arms do the same thing and this type if jerking occurs when trying to make some kind of movement. I have also been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Plus suffered from two severe whiplashes in 1989 and 1991, and two head injuries (with back of head hitting concrete in 1996 and falling down 11 concrete steps in 1999. After the two head injuries my migraines increased, have had many more problems with ability to think clearly (including doing my checking account) getting lost, etc.
Avatar n tn Anyone ever look up Borderline Personality Disorder? Or Fibromyalgia? What are your thoughts on this. It seems to explain me perfectly. Yes, uncomfortable around other people. It seems I am always reassuring someone "its not you, its me. Always tired, constant headaches, panic attack at the tiniest amount of stress that others seem to take with a grain of salt. Oh, and my teeth always hurt!
1327431 tn?1327075704 only TWO days that I felt real good since I took the RAI. But,,,,I have fibromyalgia also and that makes you feel lousy and panic disorder....feel lousy....so..I can't really put all the blame on being Hypo. ...I just need to get my F3/F4 levels checked. Good Luck ....but...don't expect an overnight cure.
Avatar n tn To be honest, the person who wrote that she's suffered from Fibromyalgia for 20 years and she's only 32, doesn't realize that she doesn't actually have Fibromyalgia, but most likely a Thyroid disorder or something else. Fibromyalgia pain onset does not begin until a person is in their mid-twenties (on very rare occasions, it can begin in late teens, early twenties).
Avatar n tn And he has a wonderful bedside manor and tells the BEST jokes! I had gotten lipstick on his white coat @ 1st visit, because I pecked a kiss on his cheek...instead of a hand shake!!!!LOL It became a real joke w/ nurses and all. SOOOOOOO @ the hospital before bx....he was pushing on my liver area that had been marked by the radiologist, and I jumped....LOL...I made the mistake of telling him, it didn't hurt, but that I was just tickleish....he took his fingers and started to tickle me!!!!!
Avatar n tn God knows I've done my share here!!!! lol I have also been diagnoised w/ tissue damage @ fibromyalgia. I am being referred to a neuologist because of numbness in my left hand. But I will not give up my fight to beat this danged 'ole drag___on! When I do my clinical trial coming up, even if it doesn't help me, I pray it will help others. Please don't feel alone in this fight, because you are NOT! We will all be here to help you in anyway we can. The people here are loving, caring wonderful ppl.
Avatar f tn However, because it is a rare disorder, it may be misdiagnosed as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, or a psychological disorder. The diagnosis can sometimes be confirmed by the presence of anti-GAD antibodies, or other types of antibodies, when the syndrome is associated with certain cancers. However, 35 percent of patients with stiff person syndrome have no antibodies and no associated cancers.
Avatar m tn Funny thing is about the fear of family and friends finding out, THEY ALREADY KNEW. Jokes on us, huh. As far as admitting to the addiction, I knew long ago in the back of my mind, just never would let it pass across my lips. Once it finally did, it wasnt so bad. I read these stories and my heart goes out to everyone of you that are fighting this battle. It really helps to know your not the only one and that there is hope.
