Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 7 years ago after a heart attack- which was caused by a spontaneous dissection of my left coronary artery. I never seemed to get well. I stayed tired, pain everywhere, sensitive to chemicals- especially in stores like Lowe's or Home Depot- got sick, dizzy and had to leave the store. I am also sensitive to sounds- loud sounds, sensitive to light- can't stand being hot or cold. I am still so tired, there are days I don't get out of my chair.

Avatar n tn I am a 22 year old female and after doing a bit of research it sounds as though I have several symptoms that occur under fibromyalgia. I have had throughout my entire life a bizarre amount of muscle problems and pain. In recent times (last 5-6 months) I have had occasions where my body and skin hurts so much that even my shirt is hurting it. This isn't an everyday, or even every week, event but it has happened probably 5 or 6 time.
Avatar n tn Howdy all Hope you all are doing OK (so far as an addict can be). Ive found a lot of inspiration here, THANK YOU. I know there are several schools or thought on stopping this crazy cycle of addiction: Cold Turkey and Taper. Also some folks recommend taking other drugs to help out the WD symptoms, others dont. Well, Im slowely creating a "WD Kit," I have a bucketload of Wellbutrin, about 5 klonopines and a few Ativans and am saving them up for the Big Day.

606078 tn?1247268153 Hi Deloris; I found the kit that I ordered from w w w njoycigarettes (.) c o m They have different price kits, I bought the 79.95 kit. So far this morning, I still have not craved a real cigarette. And there hasn't been any food craving. If this works and I believe it's going to I will gladly tell everyone I know about it. Give it a try.
Avatar f tn I am writing on behalf of my sister who has been diagnosed with a SEVERE Vitamin D deficiency. She has every symptom of fibromyalgia and was actually diagnosed with it during a process of elimination a couple of years ago. She is now wondering if there may be a relation between fibro and vitamin d. At this point, she feels too sick to research this so I am searching for answers. Her symptoms include joint/muscle/bone pain, chronic fatigue, edema in her feet and ankles, and flu like symptoms.
Avatar f tn For diagnostic tests, the FDA requires that tests be produced in kit form, and the kit is what the FDA approves and regulates. An APA Assay kit, in the Enzyme Linked ImmunoSorbent Assay (ELISA) microtiter plate format, has been developed for Autoimmune Technologies by Corgenix, Inc., and this kit is now being used in the U.S. clinical trials. The data obtained from these trials will then be submitted to the FDA in what is called a Pre-Market Approval, or PMA, application.” Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn it is interesting though because my elderly father has type 2 diabetes. I might get a hold of a home testing urine kit. I used to have GERD so I know the symptoms of that, this was treated with Lanzoprazole last year. I have never had shingles, or anything like that - no rashes etc. I guess it could be a pinched nerve - but would the pain be so uniform and bi lateral? I genuinely do not remember doing anything to cause a pinched nerve. It does not feel like that sort of pain though..
Avatar f tn My brother-in-law claims that there is no such thing as fibromyalgia and that the "disease" or "syndrome" was created by the drug manufacturers only AFTER they created the drug Lyrica. Do any of you have any credible evidence that this absurd statement is true??? I was recently diagnosed with FMS and am pained by his unwillingness to believe that this horrible syndrome is a valid, medically-accepted diagnosis.
525545 tn?1293184794 I have had a very stressful two years with my fibromyalgia as my family has to. I am at the end of my patience and tired of the pain. I have a new doctor, who says he can help. I am emotionally exhausted, hate the fibro fog, that does not go away. Let's not forget the pain, depression. I am not having good thoughts today. Any one have any suggestions? Please let me know. I have no control of my body any longer.
449658 tn?1211307922 I was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and I am waiting on another appt. for further discussion on options to help me deal with day to day life. The below are my symptoms - does anyone have any other ideas about what this could be?
Avatar f tn I am not certain how to ask my question. I had been told i had fibromyalgia for years and experienced the muscle fatigue, pain and worst the spasms. Now i have been told I never had fibro but that it has been MS all along. The muscle spasm and pain that i had experienced and defined as fibro comes with repetitive movements and certain tasks~~for whatever reason, standing at the sink handwashing dishes sets off a spasm in my right mid back area. Is this considered a typical MS experience?
Avatar f tn I had to quit it. I'm now waiting on a starter kit for Lamictal at my pharmacy. I have back pain, mainly lower when I stand up or walk for long periods of time (starting around 20 minutes)- I have taken indocin, ery tab, soma, naproxyn, and many others I can't think of. Chronic Constipation- I was born with. I have taken all the OTC meds including pure fiber that didn't help. I have had many colonoscopies, sigmoid scopes, ect.
Avatar n tn Hi Kit, Thanks for the compliment ! My friend Leslie is the artist and she let me use one of her self-portraits on the home page. You may want to check again because her site is back up, right now anyway. She has had fibromyalgia symptoms (possibly lyme) for many years. The protocol that we both have been on is the Marshall Protocol. The Marshall Protocol was developed by Professor Trevor Marshall, Ph.D in 2002 to treat certain diseases that involve Th1 immune system dysfunction.
Avatar n tn And does anyone know of tendonitis and fibromyalgia connection. I got tendonitis throughout both arms and next thing I am told I have fibromyalgia.
Avatar f tn Hi kit... I hope you will consider creating a Health Page. When you are having a good day, but of course !
Avatar f tn Does anyone know Dr. Harold Bowersox? Apparently Dr Bowersox used to work in the town where I work . Recently ads in our newspaper have started showing up stating that " You can be cured from Fibromyalgia!!" Dr Bowersox has written a book that I have ordered but as a person with Fibromyalgia and a nurse this ad sounds too good to be true. I right away discounted it but have talked to some people I work with who remember Dr Bowersox and say he was a good doctor????? Help me!
Avatar n tn My Primary Care Physician suspects that I have Fibromyalgia, and I am not certain. I would like to go to a Dr. who deals regularly with this disease, to be able to know why I have so much pain throughout my body. I know of one Dr. that I heard about through a patient of his, I overheard her talking about her Fibromyalgia, and asked her who is her Dr. She told me Dr. Elliot Kopp, in Raleigh. I am just not sure who to go to, can you help with that?
543346 tn?1214461088 My name is Sarah, and I was diagnosed at Mayo Clinic on Friday with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I have been sick for 4 years, and had seen 22 doctors before going to Mayo. I have been working half time and have spent progressively less time doing social things with friends. I am now back in Texas and am faced with telling my friends and family about my diagnoses, while trying to let this sink in myself!
Avatar f tn Hello there, I agree with PlateletGirl that high SED rate usally indicates inflammation whether it relates to Fibromyalgia or not. I also read articles on inflammation vs Fibromyalgia. There're many good doctors in LA (I assume you live in Los Angeles?). If you need to find another doctor, I will message you the listing from Co-Cure.
1374503 tn?1278723261 Abdominal wall pain can happen after surgeries and unfortunately is just a chronic condition. Mine seems to come with my fibromyalgia flares so I think it is because it is a muscle. Adhesions often form after surgeries. Take a look at the health pages attached to the Ovarian Cyst forum on a great posting on how to deal with them using ball rolling (I bought the Yamuna ball rolling kit). As well, a massage therapist skilled in myofascial release can help.
461245 tn?1219362446 ) I think I wrote before that I was on this fibromyalgia medication called Lyrica well, It caused me to eat to much at first, but now I dont have that. The benefits out-weigh the side affects for me. I tried to get off of it but the pain was horrible. So I'm back on. I'm just not going to get on a stronger dose. The medication help with my mood. You tend to be very blue when you hurt like the "dickins" it makes me feel like I can do life!
Avatar f tn I know within the USA the National Fibromyalgia Association has a list of doctors who treat Fibromyalgia in each state. You do have to sign up, but the sign up is free. Their website address is: http://www.fmaware.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed w/ Fibromyalgia but I think it was incorrect because I have a highly elevated SED RATE and moderately elevated CK level. This has happened aapprox. 3 years ago when CK level was extremely high (<700) and normal SED RATE. The first time it cleared up by itself in about 4 months, this time I've been going through it since February. Each time I am very weak, tired and have painful knee ankle, foot, e wrist, fingers,elbows. ANA and RA is normal.
522415 tn?1242941355 For fibromyalgia you want to keep a family doctor for sore throats and cold etc. but see a Rheumatologist for the Fibro. I have found Cellebrex helps a lot. I didn;t knwo how much it was doing until I missed two days of it and I was in unbareable pain. There is also a new drug called Lyrica although I have not tried it. Has your doctor checked your ANA?
Avatar m tn My mother has been getting constant pains moving around her body within the abdomen, the chest and heart, arms, legs, back, base of neck, head, hand, fingers, wrist and now just recently it has began spreading into her eyes. She cannot sleep at night because of the constant pain. Everyday is getting worse and we've run out of options. Dont tell me to go talk to my doctor cause we are there every other week and he tells us the same thing, "Fibromyalgia".
