Fibromyalgia leg discomfort

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia leg discomfort


Avatar n tn The latter is a diagnosis of exclusion, and tests for rheumatoid factor and ANA level should be done first before settling on fibromyalgia. Regarding the sternal discomfort, musculoskeletal causes should be ruled out. A physiatrist (rehabilitation MD) evaluation can be considered if this is suspected. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
1564938 tn?1295223828 In 2009 I was having some really bad pain going down my leg and into my foot. I had a MRI done and found out I had a herniated disc, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease. Since then I had my second child. He's 3 mths old now. I didn't have too many issues. My back didn't bother me as much as I thought it would but now for the past couple mths my whole body hurts all the time. Mainly my joints and muscles. It feels like I've been hit by train every day.
Avatar f tn The pain started to affect my entire right body including my head, neck, leg, thigh, hip and hand as well. In the mean time, I consulted an Orthopedic who gave me 10 injections of Vitamin B and told me that I am suffering from “FIBROMYALGIA”. I took 20 sessions of physiotherapy which included IFT and US therapy. He asked me not to take too much stress, sleep properly and so on. There after I tried to follow what ever he said but pain was still there and was getting worst day by day.
Avatar m tn I still have dizzy spells, and carrying over from late August, is discomfort in my throat; not quite sore but there's definitely some scratchy, hot, lumpy sensation. My shoulders/back/arms/legs/neck still ache sporadically. Particularly during this month, have been headaches (or migraines, not sure)(intensity and duration varies), which tends to radiate from the left side of my head (once or twice, the headache felt like it numbed my face).
Avatar m tn For the last few months I have had near constant tingling in my shoulders, my forearms hurt and some leg weakness When I workout or go to the driving range the day after my arms feel very fatigued and I feel a bit out of it. I am unable to sleep either because I am worrying about this or this is part of the disease process. More to the story, I recently tested positive for hsv1 and hsv2. I was only tested because I was dating someone that was hsv2 positive.
Avatar n tn Try writing down all that is happening to you. Fibromyalgia has so many symptoms so it is common to have a long list. Ask them to test your tender points to determine if you have it. You need something better than Amitriptyline. I take Remeron for depression (and believe me, it gets so much easier to manage this when your depression is under control) and Lyrica. Lyrica has changed my life. Yes, there are side effects but they lessen with time.
Avatar n tn It came on my left foot, then leg and sometimes right foot. Then it showed up on my left arm and the left side of my face 2 1/2 months ago. My GP ordered and MRI with and without:normal. Did labs of CBC, CHEM 7, thyroid, lupus , not sure what else: all normal. I saw a neuro last week. Did exam:normal. Says does not look like MS or other problem and to come back if worse or lose fx. So, What can I do to relieve this numbness?
Avatar f tn While I agree that being overweight can cause these symptoms, I'm just at my wits end - what if it's something else. I'm in so much pain and discomfort that exercising is too much for me. How do I know - how do I get the dr to at least consider it might be something else?
Avatar f tn Hi My doctor tells me I have fibromyalgia. I have so many of the symptoms eg pain in back,hips,thighs kness,neck.shoulders so on, burning,aching. numbness, itching, muscles weakness. poor sleep pattern. Symptoms are worse with stress, monthly cycle and activity. I also have eye pain and intraocular pressure of 26 in my left eye, and foot pain. I could continue. There is one thing which greatly puzzles me and this is that I have painful lumps in my fatty tissue.
Avatar f tn can someone with some knowledge and experience please tell me what seems to be the best treatments out there when it comes to dealing with fibromyalgia? i am still trying to gather information on which is better lyrica or neurontin, and i am also told they are the same med? any truth to this? any advice on how to deal with flare ups would be just great also, at this point i am up for anything new that may help...
Avatar f tn I get muscle knots in the back of my leg along with knee pain had it for about 2 months.When I walk my knee feels like it is frozen and when I try to bend it it hurts also the muscle knot at the back of my knee feels like the back of my leg is being stretched. Was working out alot at the gym. I dread getting up in the morning because I know I am going to be stiff and sore can hardly walk first thing in the morning.
Avatar n tn * Fibromyalgia * Neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy * Postherpetic neuralgia The mechanism of action of pregabalin is unknown, pregabalin reduces the calcium-dependent release of several neurotransmitters, possibly by modulation of calcium channel function is probably one of the ways it can help in reducing the neurogenic pain.

Avatar f tn that is also around the time that these strange vibrations started in my legs and I was told by the doctor that is was restless leg syndrome, but it doesn't seem the same. I don't have an overwhelming urge to move my legs they just vibrate and I want it to stop. Since then it has gotten much worse and has spread. Before I go any further I do want to say I do not do drugs or alcohol. I take a low dose of xanex for nerves during the day and to help me sleep at night.
Avatar n tn Let's hope it's fibromyalgia. As I know all too well doctors love to throw the fibromyalgia diagnosis around. Dr Noopur frequently tells people on this site they probably have fibromyalgia when there symptoms are very concerning and sound a lot more serious than fibro. Have you considered Lyme disease?
Avatar n tn I went to the emergency room on Tuesday because the bloating was scaring me and for the pelvic discomfort. She took tests for pancreatis, pregnancy and h-pylori, then told me I need to schedule an appointment with a OBGYN. I called the OBGYN, but now they aren't able to see me for another two weeks. I am scared and anxious because I feel like no one's paying attention to me (I'm 29 years old), and this has been going on for 6+ months now. I don't feel myself. Thanks for your insight.
Avatar m tn Usually starts within a half hour of waking up and continues on/off during the day, localized to that spot on the left side, usually branches off from there, rarely travels to the right side of my head. The arm and leg pains are back. The leg pain has been bothering me the most over the last few days, localized to the ankle area at the top of the left foot and travels across the top of my left foot down to my second toe.

Avatar n tn no numbness or anything on the back of my leg. While the leg is numb, it still gets itcy and it is very irritating to scratch it. If I stand or walk for too long, the burning sensation comes into play, and I have to sit down, because it also hurts my lower back, makes my back feel like it will break if I don't sit down. This has been going on for 23 years! And not one doctor can tell me what is wrong...
Avatar m tn Hi, I'm 39 yold male, I got NGU STD 1st week of June but treated it the following week once the symptoms showed up. Right now Im suffering from SKin Pain, my derma diagnosed dermographism and currently Im on antihistamine indefinitely until I feel better. But 1 week from the therapy I feel no improvement, skin pain is still rampant and I feel stiffness on my leg & thigh muscle especially at night, at the end of the day.
Avatar f tn For the past month I have been having strange RLS-type symptoms in my right leg AND arm. My leg has a constant 'electrical' feeling that tingles and I feel the urge to stretch and move. My arm however has been achy throughout and tingly in all my fingers and palm. These sensations change, the tingling goes from mild to severe, as well as the aches. But it never goes away completely. My left side is not affected at all. Could this be MS? A pinched nerve? Something else?
Avatar f tn I have so many symptoms that don't seem to fit my "fibromyalgia" diagnosis. Anyone share any of these same symptoms?: - sensation of warm water going down leg or foot? - electrical type buzzing going down legs - numbness in face, mouth, feet, legs, hands, fingers - uncontrolled movements ("they move on their own") - arms, fingers, legs, shoulders - twitching I'm just not sure if the drs are missing something. Thanks for your help!
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 m tn I wanted to ask anyone if you have ever heard of leg pain associated with tablets of morphine, I woke up at night and my legs felt like they were on fire. I have decided to go off of the morphine and have 16 left and I did it before with less though it is hard. This is the third prescription I have had because they just did not have anything better to offer but the divoprolex is working well. Or epival??
Avatar n tn For the past 2 days I have a very slight heat sensation in my lower left leg (no other problems). Is this some thing I should be concerned about now, or wait for my drs. appt in a few weeks?
Avatar m tn yeah i went to my dr today got tests for lyme disease because now the pain is all over in my right leg knees behind knees calfes lil in my arms and wrist and left leg too. righty now right leg more and left ankle its weird and scary. my dr told me if i do have lyme disease that the joint pain will be permanent and theres no furthur treatment for that. i went camping from aug-19-21 and started having symptoms of headaches on the night of the 23rd. has anyone heard of this? im soo nervous now.
Avatar n tn going on 3 the pain in my right leg is almost gone but now im feeling the pain to start in my left leg also when im driving the pain flares up in right leg or when i bend over the pain in my back is bad and feels like all my leg muscles are being pulled i guess i just want to know if this is normal with a bulging disc
