Avatar n tn Does Savella seem to help with your symptoms of Fibro? I hope so and I hope that your pain will be better controlled. Please let us know how you are doing. We'll be interested to hear how you are adjusting to the medication.... and if it is effective.
Avatar f tn fibromyalgia. severe pain under left rib. I was cleaning my kitchen bin and felt a searing pain under mt left rib, at the side. I'm now bed bound, unable to move without screaming in pain. Pain meds, including morphine, don't help. I have slipped discs in my lower back as well. It hurts when I breath. What could be the cause of the extreme pain I'm in? Having slept on my right side last night, I now have extreme shoulder pain. I do have a memory foam mattress.
Avatar n tn Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, home treatment can relieve some of the symptoms. Fibromyalgia pain is muscle pain and the most important therapy for muscle pain is regular, gentle and low-impact exercise. It keeps muscles conditioned and healthy and decreases the amount of discomfort. It is very important to try low-stress exercises such as walking, swimming, water aerobics, and biking rather than straining exercises such as weight training. Heavy exercises worsen the symptoms.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am currently on a trial drug medication that has helped my intense pain stop. However, I continue to get dull achy numbness nerve pain. Have you tried or will try alternative mediation such as acupuncture or biofeedback?? I am going to because the research for the medication will be over in June and I will not be on any medication, they alter you inside, not my style.
Avatar f tn This doesn't really sound much like fibromyalgia pain - that pain is typically widespread and not just in one area (although certain areas can feel worse at times than other areas). It also usually affects both sides of the body pretty equally. It sounds more like maybe a shoulder injury (have you fallen or stretched your shoulder at all? heavy lifting?) I could also be a pleuritic type pain (inflammation of the area around the lungs).
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and I have severe muscle pain and stiffness. I was wondering if anyone could tell me any kind of medicine that might help? Everything I have tried so far didn't help at all......
690327 tn?1255358111 Fibromyalgia has to be one of the worst things I have had yet, but, I am sure thre will be something worse! That seems to be that with life. I never used to be ill much at all, even though at 16 I was told I had Rheumatoid Arthritis. Now, I have those plus, Osteoarthritis, Osteoporosis, IBS, Restless leg syndrome. Do you think I am falling apart?!HA! Not funny! The Fibro is absolutley got me. I am in pain all day every day!
Avatar n tn There are tranquilizers or hypnotics that you can talk with your doctor about that can help you get a better night's sleep. The big question is, Is the Savela helping your pain from Fibromyalgia? If so, then also ask, Have a tried the gauntlet of other meds out there to see if they help with my pain as well without the side effect of insomnia?
735919 tn?1236448149 I am 30yrs old and i am taking Cymbalta for my Fibromyalgia pain but i have to stop it do to my insurance. It works REALLY well for my pain. I wanted to know if anyone is taking Lyrica for their pain and if it works.
Avatar m tn Some of the the later symptoms can all be caused by medication side effects? We have started acupuncture which has been quite good so far, his pain has reduced. He is now missing lots of school, originally due to fatigue and chest pain and last week due to nausea. Are the doctors correct in their diagnosis, can anyone suggest a way forward or shed any light on a similar experience?
Avatar f tn Getting your voice and being prepared to talk to the doctors in a way that helps them understand what you are feeling and what you think you might need is the best way to approach this. For me my pain is managed with pain medication but I still experience pain. I take Topramax for headaches, that has really helped. I take enzymes and drink water all day and watch the foods that I eat to avoid bloating and digestion problems. I also take Pepogest for constipation.
710094 tn?1229312306 Less blood could be flowing to your brain and/or it is overwhelmed by pain signals . Take omega 3 fish and flax oils and gingko biloba along with good b vitamins / multivitamins . Brain fog is common in chronic pain conditions . Also try to avoid wheat completely for few days and see it helps (wheat gluten allergy) , Take lots of rest , I am taking cymbalta and it has helped me with pain and brain function . Never loose hope , we are in this together , you will feel better soon .
Avatar f tn Does anyone who has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia know of the best medication to take to help relieve the discomfort associated with this disease?
Avatar n tn I have suffered from fibromyalgia for years. I have been taking vitiman B6/B-12 shots, and they help me with the pain of the disease. I"ve been trying to find out where to buy the B-6, I already have the B-12. Can anyone let me know if there is somewhere to buy B-6. Also, Rodex Forte is good for the off days, so I need to buy that also.
Avatar m tn Are you seeing a Rheumatologist for your Fibromyalgia? I am seeing a Rheumatologist for my severe Fibromyalgia. It is always best to check with your Doctor. Keep me posted....Thanks!
Avatar f tn You know peoples opinions don't bother me. There are facts and the fact is that some fibromyalgia patients are in wheelchairs. The truth never hurts... only our reaction to it does.
Avatar n tn I think it is important to remember that there is nothing wrong with taking pain medication as long as they are needed and justified. Uncontrolled Chronic pain can and will have both negative physiological and psychological effects on the individual. You have to think what is happening on the neurological level of someone that is always at the 10 level of pain. Then there is depression and all the other lovely stuff.
1336585 tn?1275712712 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.
Avatar m tn it is also used for nerve pain in patients with arthritis and fibromyalgia ,etc....hope this helps you out some....
3202069 tn?1345408082 I also eat something light like oatmeal, cheerios or a couple of scrambled eggs and take my pain medication. then when that kicks in I stretch, pray and try to move around, My bladder bothers me too since I have Interstitial cystitis. I get up several times to go to the restroom. I have been having alot of pain in my bladder and back and going to the doctor Tuesday. It is so hard to get motivated when your in pain. You don't even want to move.
Avatar f tn Who cares what it is, if you're not in pain, and the medication is not dangerous, I dont see the problem. Lyrica didn't work for me... And i dont really think Gabapentin is either. Lyrica only works in like 50% of the patients, so I am happy you found something that works!! Fight for what is good for you, no one is going to be a better advocate than yourself. Good luck!
Avatar n tn Other than depression, Cymbalta is more used in treating Fibromyalgia or Diabetic Neuropothy pain. It is not so widely used in chronic pain such as yours. The host of side effects it comes with is also a concern to me..Some of which include suicidal tendencys. Be sure to read your medication guide and I would discuss the headaches and ringing of the ears right after the Holiday. Med Help offers a forum by the name of "Ask the Pharmacist", this might be of some help to you also.
1130095 tn?1267372859 Look up the link between fibromyalgia and thyroid. I've never heard of any of the other medication you take so I can't comment. Also, as far as the headaches foods, what you drink can bring on headaches. Nuts, cheese, dairy all bring headaches on for me. I too drink a ton of water, that's really good but make sure there isn't anything going on with your blood sugar. Good luck.

Avatar n tn He had me on Vicodin for 3 years to ease my suffering. When I moved to a different state, I ran out of my pain medication and just stopped taking vicodin. NOTHING HAPPENED TO ME! NOTHING! I did not get sick, shake, sweat, vomit, turn to other drugs or alcohol..........NOTHING! I just suffered constantly with pain. I waited a few months before seeking another doctor in my new town. He treated me like a junkie and told me to take Advil. That was two years ago.
