Avatar n tn I've been taking methadone for a while now for my back and fibromyalgia. I feel and also my Dr's that if there is any thing out there that does not have tylenol or aspirin in it helps my liver. And with methadone being time released that's even better. As for treatment of my liver I can only offer my experience. The rebatol pills I took along with my shots caused me took have pulmonary hypertension.

Avatar m tn Non-obesity related Spinal epidural Lipomatosis: I was diagnosised last week. I'm 30 lbs max overweight, 52 yr old woman. I'm having symptoms of both legs numbness, tingling, heaviness, weakness, MRI shows spinal stenosis from L-3 to S1. The pain is worse than my fibromyalgia pain. My surgeon said he'd do surgery, but it may cause more pain, and I should wait til I start losing the use of my legs. Is this the best option?? From what I've read surgery can be successful.
Avatar n tn Niko PS You may also post at the Weight Loss and Heart Communities. This is the Fibromyalgia Community, so you may not get many replies. It just happens that I'm familiar with this, as I study the effects of various chemical drugs prescribed for certain conditions and researching for natural equivalents.
Avatar f tn The presentation is as wide as ones imagination and no 2 cases are identical. Dr. Lowe from the Fibromyalgia Research Foundation supports the premise that most fibromyalgia patients are either hypothyroid or thyroid hormone resistant. To rule this in or out you must forgo the standard serum thyroid testing (TSH, T3&T4) which only indicate... serum levels and ask for Free T3, Free T4 and Reverse T3 to test for accurate thyroid cellular FUNCTION!
Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I have some osteoarthritis and have had a hip replacement 4 yrs ago, in the last year I have becomed very fatigued, muscle pain especially in arms, shoulder area, hands and feet, I have very little energy to go to gym anymore, I heard that 50% of people with fibromyalgia also have low thyroid, even though my thyroid test shows normal, could thyroid medication help?
Avatar f tn They are the ones that can tell you if your primary issue is obesity or something else. In the meantime try to be kind to yourself. As for exercise do what you can. If all you can do is walk a little ways than do that. Use distraction techniques for the pain such as counting backwards by threes while you are doing it. Sometimes pain is a liar, and if we don't keep moving our bodies will cease up and get worse. Even little things like doing an arm curl during a commercial can help.
2010625 tn?1329375656 I was just wondering what causes Fibromyalgia? Can Anxiety, Depression/Bipolar, IBS, or Genital Herpes cause it?

Muscle weakness, tiredness, sleep problems, diarrhea, and foggy brain. A couple of months ago I noticed my legs getting weaker.

Avatar f tn I thought I had fibromyalgia, but the pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance, memory problems, etc sound consistent with Hashi. I don't have all the results yet and should probably wait to ask questions, but numbers are concerning and confusing. Should I be worried the TSH is rising so fast? I checked my pills to make sure I was taking the thyroid and I am. Thank you for any help you can offer: FSH (FOLLICLE STIMULATING HORMONE) LH (LUTEINIZING HORMONE) 1.6 to 3.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosised 7 years ago with Fibromyalgia and I had symptoms for 2 years. I was told that I should lose weight to lessen the symptoms. My mom told me about a way that she was hearing about. It was a low glycemic diet. Basically what that is is you eat any protein, any fat(vegtable fat prefered)and the only carbs you eat(but you eat as much as you need to)are carbs that don't raise your blood sugar..most are green and have a lot of fiber. There are other foods but thats the basics.

Hope this answers your question.
358699 tn?1297650042 My MD just says I need to build up my activity tolerance and blames it on fibromyalgia. I also have the text book signs of morning stiffness, obesity especially around my trunk and abdomen. I swear I look pregnant from a side view. Too me, I look abnormally fat around the upper abdomen. I had gained weight after I quit smoking 5 years ago, but I can't lose the near 35 lbs I put on. I once gained 10 lbs in one month, but it was blamed on my hypothyroidism being out of whack.
1298014 tn?1331031854 Your morbid obasity can be the reason you have Atrial Fibrillation, it was a valid point from me to... "pointed out the elephant in the room" as you put it. :) Don't shoot the messenger .:) There is a good info. http://www.morbid-obesity.org/morbid_obesity_problems.html " Morbid obesity problems are manifold. One of the major concerns of morbid obesity is its strong association with heart disease.
2164985 tn?1337126613 You posted at the Fibromyalgia Community as well. There's an answer there for you. The test results don't reveal much. Have you ruled out mineral and nutritional deficiencies? Mg,D3, B12 etc How about thyroid issues?
14296391 tn?1434140429 I'm perimenopausal, have fibromyalgia, and I'm 46 y.o. I could barely move on Monday and I was extremely weak and exhausted all day. I started taking B complex vitamins on Wednesday in the morning which had helped tremendously with energy. I take one to two Aleve every day for pain. I just added daily vitamin supplement at bedtime. I'm moving a lot better today in comparison to Monday. So, with all that in mind, when should I begin adding in exercise?
Avatar f tn This occurs due increased pressure on the nerve secondary to hereditary, hypothyroidism, obesity etc. The other possibilities are diabetes, vitamin B5 and B12 deficiency and fibromyalgia. You need to undergo evaluation like thyroid status, blood sugar, CSF analysis and certain serological tests. Carpal tunnel syndrome can be managed by - Splinting of wrist may limit activities that raise pressure within the carpal tunnel or reduce its cross sectional area.
Avatar n tn Hi Everyone, For several years I have been having some strange symptoms after 20yrs on the same dosage of levothyroxine 0.175mcg. Muscle & joint aches (Fibromyalgia), then TSH is 2.7, 1.5,.7. Last Oct. a nodule on the right side of thyroid, US done, 2cm nodule, solid. Dec. had a partial thyroidectomy with a micropapillary carcinoma. TSH 1.7 after surgery, still doing well and feeling much better on levothyroxine 112 & Cytomel 5 mcg. TSH was .7 and now 6.793.

Avatar n tn Now he is going to do a colonoscopy. One thing to note, I have Fibromyalgia. My G.I. doc says a LOT of people with FM have GI problems. FM is caused by a genetic liver/kidney disfunction, so there could be a connection.... Does anyone else with these symptoms ALSO have Fibromyalgia? Has anyone found ANYTHING to succesfully treat the GI symptoms mentioned above? There is no cure for Fibromyalgia, but there HAS to be something to at least TREAT the GI symptoms!
Avatar f tn Not that I have PCOS though but insulin resistance seems the most likely culprit. My doctor thought I had fibromyalgia but the wide spread pain was due to magnesium deficiency and this deficiency was due to insulin resistance.
