Avatar f tn Picamilon can cross the blood brain barrier , as this has been a possible limitation with other GABA supplements. There's a good article on Picamilon, in the Life Extension Magazine, if you wish to read it. Just do search. It's funny- when I first read your post not getting ANY sleep!- as one of Gabapentin's off label uses is to treat insomnia,lol! My comments are not intended to replace medical advice.
216278 tn?1308864682 Hi...just wondering if anyone has heard of fibromyalgia or knows anyone with it? I am wondering if there is any connection between it and infertility...it's hard to find anything definitive on the Internet! Thanks for your help!
554442 tn?1221238825 It's a common misconception that fibromyalgia is an inflammatory or rheumatological condition, but it is not. While researchers still have many theories about the mechanisms behind fibromyalgia, many of them now believe the condition is more neurologically based. Aleve (naproxen sodium) and ibuprofen-based drugs (Motrin, Advil) are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and are most effective against pain that accompanies inflammation.
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.
1852058 tn?1320162300 You most certainly are NOT alone, so please never feel that way. And you absolutely have NOTHING to be ashamed of. I, too, have fibro (along with several other health issues, including other chronic pain issues) - so I do definitely understand how you're feeling.
Avatar f tn I am curious how many people are RH-, received RhoGam injection after the birth of their 1st childs birth and now has Fibromyalgia. In the 1980's, RhoGam had mercury in it. Actually, mercury was in many immunizations (used as a preservative), but have been (supposedly) recently removed from products. I cannot get much information on this subject.

Avatar n tn After battling the pain of Fibro for 7 years and trying all sorts of therapies and prescribed drugs, none of which really worked well or were worth the side effects, I heard about D-Ribose in a magazine and decided to give it a try. I have only been taking it for a couple of weeks and I have already noticed a change in my energy level and ability or recover more quickly from exercise. http://www.getnutri.com/product23899/d-ribose.
Avatar f tn Research has shown that people with fibromyalgia brain ages 10 yrs faster than the average person. I am fast approaching 63 and I have had some serious memory problems. I don't have these problems everyday and I do not know what triggers them. I do know that if I am really tired I will have memory loss to the point that I cannot complete a sentence. So does it mean that when I am 73 my brain will act like it is 83 or older? This really has me worried.
186166 tn?1385262982 A friend recommended a magazine called Living Without. www.****.com You can order the magazine on line. It costs about $23 and there are 6 issues a year. It is very informative, colorful and easy to read. Many receipes and testimonies. I don't know what to do about the ulcers except what I used to get from the pharmacy. You probably have tried that. You must be eating something that is causing this reaction.
Avatar n tn The August 2004 issue of Discover Magazine had an article about transcranial magnetic stimulation for migraines. http://discovermagazine.com/2004/aug/biology-of-migraines The company that is working on a device for this is still doing clinical trials. (Heh, start saving your money to buy one of these.) http://www.neuralieve.com/Neuralieve%20Product.htm http://www.newstarget.com/020160.html I was diagnosed with migraines and fibromyalgia.

1767882 tn?1331412769 She's 40 yrs old, suffers from migraines, takes Effexor for depression and thinks she may have fibromyalgia. She's chronically fatigued, has a lot of trouble sleeping, and she's now having a persistent pain in her lower back that wraps around to her chest and is extremely difficult to get rid of. Last night she took 4 perc 10s and it barely touched it. She's not an addict, in fact, she hates pain pills as they give her a headache.
Avatar f tn Zydone actually keeps me awake, where when Soma taken by itself would normally put me asleep. The second thing is the National Fibromyalgia Assoc. is putting a magazine out that will be on magazine stands in CVS pharmacies starting next week. Here is the info : http://www.fmaware.org/site/News2?page=NewsArticle&id=7673&JServSessionIdr001=98u02l1zb4.
61536 tn?1340701763 I don't have fibromyalgia (I have CFS), but I can tell you that many of the people I know with fibromyalgia share many of the same symptoms you described. Dizziness is also common in patients' with fibromyalgia (and CFS for that matter).
Avatar f tn I do not have alot of medical costs ecept the Hep C stuff now. I am disabled due to degenerative disc, arthritis, and fibromyalgia. I have found a number to call next week that I hope will help me decide about the plans because I do not know alot about medicare. I just got my disability a few years back. My Gosh, it is so confusing, all the different plans and steps. Thks so much for your help and now I know where to start out at!
Avatar n tn Hey, A great deal of your symptoms sure sound like Fibromyalgia. I have it along with being hypothyroid. When I have a bad flare up, I feel like I have the flu - very achey all over. Certain spots tender to the touch. Would go back to rhumetologist. Would also start back on the Elavil.
Avatar f tn There are a lot of us out here that are thinking of you both and wishing you the best. Make sure you visit www.fmaware.org and ABSOLUTELY SUBSCRIBE to Fibromyalgia Aware magazine. It will be a godsend to you both.
Avatar f tn ) )The arthritis foundation is a wonderful place for advocacy and information on this fibromyalgia ****. I suggest joining a support group and they have great pamphlets, and books and I also subscribe to their magazine and one call arthritis self management. Since the pain and stiffness are most definately alot like the arthritis pains and stiffness (just not all the swelling) these are another great avenue for help!
280418 tn?1306329510 they publish a monthly magazine with articles written by medical professionals and by patients and advocates, I find all the articles interesting and useful and not too technical; they are at lymedisease [dot] org and relate not only to California but to all Lyme disease patients.
Avatar m tn once i started eating healthy and i don't mean following the latest advise from a magazine. i mean eating fresh food and avoiding processed meats , canned vegetables , soda and etc. i started feeling better. i also realized that my stomach was triggering the whole thing. The crap that they put in our food is killing us and making our bodies go into a type of shock. You don't have to believe me, i'm fine with that.
Avatar n tn I RECEIVE IVIG MONTHLY OF CARAMUNE AND THEY HAVE PLACED ME ON CMBALTA FOR THE FIBROMYALGIA. I ALSO DO EVEN GET A SWEET HELLO FROM MY IMMUNOLOGIST WHEN I GO MONTHLY FOR TREATMENT. HE TOTALLY AVOIDS ME AND IF TO TALK TO ME FOR 10 MINUTES A GET A BILL FOR $225.00. SO I ALSO TOOK IT UPON MYSELF TO SEE A RHEUMATOLOGIST IN WHICH I ADORE. CHECK INTO IT. I HAVE A MYSPACE PAGE FOR SUFFERERS SUCH AS US. IT IS UNDER "mychildisalwayssick" you should go there.
Avatar n tn Doctors could only tell me they suspect fibromyalgia. I thought this diagnosis was lame and went searching for answers. I finally ended up at a lyme disease specialist and got diagnosed with lyme disease. I had 4 tests for lyme taken prior to seeing this lyme doctor and they always came up negative. He tested me through a lab that specializes in lyme detection. This lab check all the markers for lyme, which are 16.
Avatar m tn Scientific American magazine did a series of articles on individuals with unusualy sensory mechanisms, which mentioned several specialists studying these abilities.
551343 tn?1506834118 com/p/articles/mi_m0850/is_n3_v8/ai_9369099/ This is a brilliant piece by Jodi Bassett about MS V FIBROMYALGIA. It makes very interesting reading and I would recommend you follow through on some of the links especially about CFS. http://www.ahummingbirdsguide.com/topicmedefsandfm.htm Here is a website about functional or dissociative neurological symptoms. Many of us are diagnosed with this: http://www.neurosymptoms.
Avatar n tn Hi there, i'm new to this forum and have a diagnosis of fibromyalgia after many years of being in limbo land with all sorts of symptoms..
Avatar f tn Another doctor diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia, and now my rheumatologist suspects lupus. Now my question, my mom is the only one who saw my ANA titer, I didn't get to peek at it, and she said it was 20. Is that low, normal, is she remembering wrong? I thought there had ot be a 1:, I'm new at this sorry. As far as ANA tests go anyway. I've been having tests done a lot, and he said my lupus titer was negative, so why do I have the rash? Can I have lupus and the test be negative?
