Avatar n tn Chronic pain, Sleeplessness, Anxiety and Fatigue may be symptoms of Fibromyalgia or other conditions like Chronic Fatigue syndrome. There are many other conditions that mimic the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia is based on the presence of tender points. These tender spots are particularly located in the neck, back, shoulders and hips. There are 18 points on body for tenderness in patients of this condition.
Avatar f tn You've never treated so I don't know if you understand the difference between fatigue caused by hemolytic anemia and that of generalized fatigue. No amount of pain medication will help with hemolytic anemia when you're gasping for breath and any type of exertion causes you're muscles to start rebelling. The only thing that helps relieve that type of pain is Epogen. Doctors don't generally prescribe pain medication for fatigue.

Avatar m tn After the endoscopy we were given the diagnosis of chronic fatigue / fibromyalgia . Having been initially relieved that we finally had a diagnosis we are now starting to think differently. Once you have been tarred with this brush it would appear the doctors are not interested. My concern is how quickly this diagnosis has been made. I've read people can wait years before getting this confirmed as tests for all other conditions are looked into.

Avatar n tn Complaints of fatigue and joint pains are,unfortunately, very common. fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by muscular aches and pains, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping.

1100837 tn?1267668675 My advice is to begin at a low dose 25mg per day and increase to no more than 25mg per week if you chose to begin this medication. This one you need to increase slowly on to get your body used to it. Fatigue can be a side effect, but most people I've talked to actually gained energy from the medication including myself. In fact, I haven't talked to one person who got tired on it. Weight loss is also a side effect in many people, which is a huge plus.

587071 tn?1218542387 Every thing came out okay but I still have the lumps.My family doctor thinks fibromyalgia is all in my head and its not a real disease.How ever the rumatodaligist thought the other way.Since I had know swelling of my joints they ruled out arthrities.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 10 years ago. About one year ago, after all of my cancer treatments were finished; I began to experience the muscle pain and chronic fatigue again in a big way. I have not been able to shake it. I have changed my diet. No soft drinks, no artificial sweeteners, and, a vitamin/anti-oxidant juice every day. I also excersize 3 to 5 days a week. Nothing is helping!
939964 tn?1288017024 I was waiting anxiously when I heard this medication was very helpful for fibromyalgia patients, and coming to Canada. To my dismay I had all the side effects mentioned for this medication and was told by my doctor to stop taking it. Like Doctor Rajgopal mentioned about medications, I was given amitriptyline which helps me have a good night sleep and I feel more refreshed when I wake up.

390570 tn?1223558483 HI AFTER ALL I BEEN THROUGH I FINALLY I GOT MY DIAGNOSED I HAVE SECONDARY FIBROMYALGIA
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia about a year ago. Since that time I have been put on all the different fibro specific medications, all ending in bad allergic reations. The only thing my body has tolerated is muscle relaxers and pain killers. I hate to take medication especially any controled meds, is there any natural remedy to help ease the pain and fatigue?
Avatar m tn One reason many conventional doctors do not think fibromyalgia is a “real” condition is that no specific medication is effective for treating this illness. Some medications do help lower the symptoms of fibromyalgia. These include analgesics such as Tylenol and Motrin. Some doctors will prescribe antidepressant medications, although there are many adverse effects. Anti-seizure drugs are the conventional treatment for fibromyalgia. These include Neurontin and Lyrica.

Avatar n tn m on all kinds of medication for fibromyalgia--could my fatigue be due to a slow heart rate instead?
Avatar f tn I have to switch my meds. I have depression and fibromyalgia and am on Cymbalta, but it doesn't seem to be helping me.....my doctor suggested Prozac since it is known to help fatigue better than the other antidepressants (supposedly). Thank you.
