fibromyalgia

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?
Avatar f tn I take Opana ER which is an extended release pain med and I take percocet for breakthru pain. I also take Lyrica for nerve pain, Trazadone and Flexeril at night to help with sleep and muscle spasms, and I am on Zoloft and bloodpressure meds. I went a long time with no pain meds then to Tramadol then to Lortab, etc.... I have very high pain levels on a daily basis plus I have a high tolerance to meds so the weaker ones never worked well for me.
Avatar f tn I am not a diabetic nor any problems with my sugar levels, it's always at a normal level (79/80) I weight 125 lbs. and I'm five foot four and I'm 51 years old. I don't use alcohol nor street drugs of any kind. I read to keep up,on new info for Fibro as often as I can, but slack a bit due slack at times. I live alone as my daughter is grown, married . I've been to foot Dr, she didn't do anything for me. Do you know what I can tested for because of this foot problem?
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 f tn Hi, A combination of Lyrica and Methadone has been found to be effective in controlling Fibromyalgia pain. Methadone may be administered alone without a combination because it is a potent analgesic. It is a narcotic analgesic similar to Morphine. However it is not used commonly for the treatment of Fibromyalgia. It has some serious side effects. Risk of serious side effects may occur even if patient has used other narcotic medications and if the drug is used improperly.

Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with herniated disks, bone spurs in right shoulder and cervical spine. I also have a blown disk in lower spine. I am 71 years old and outside of the pain issue, I am pretty healthy. The only med I am required to take is Synthroid. I have recently been experiencing pain that seems to be related. It starts along the outside of my right wrist, extends to the heel of the hand and terminates in the middle finger. The finger seems swollen a bit, and is very painful.
Avatar f tn also have GERD IBS Hiatal Hernia and Fibromyalgia- but wondering too - is this Alcohol Induced pain (excruciating- crying in Pain for 20-30 minutes just after a tiny bit of alcohol) be Hodgkin's Lymphoma or Lupus/ or MCTD?
Avatar n tn I had one pathologist say it was a sign of Hodgkin's Disease, and I had one say that maybe it could be from gerd, but my Gastroenterologist has never heard of this from any of his patients. Google alcohol induced pain, most of it is regarding Hodgkin's Disease.

554442 tn?1221238825 Fibro does not cause joint pain or swelling. The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fibromyalgia/AR00056 Question: Why Don't NSAIDs Work for Fibromyalgia Pain? Why don't pain relievers like Motrin, Advil and Aleve work against the pain of fibromyalgia? Answer: It's a common misconception that fibromyalgia is an inflammatory or rheumatological condition, but it is not.
Avatar f tn I gave up alcohol for 16 months and then realized that it is the sugar that causes the pain - whenever I had smoothies, which were packed with extra added sugar, I got the pain. I also went to a nutritionalist who said my ibs(c) wasn't helping as that meant stuff stays for longer in my body and led onto me getting sibo which could also be causing a backlog and therefore more susceptible to pain after drinking.
Avatar f tn I had been seeing a nurse practioner for the last 10 years or so but it's gotten worse.. I also have osteoarthritis and early onset osteoporosis and had been seeing a rheumatologist since the 1980's. Long story short...have new rheum. doc and he's prescribed celebrex but nothing for pain & fibro. He says go to my family doctor for the fibro and take advils & tylenols for pain, because percosets, loratabs, etc does not work for osteo. Advils/ tylenols  DO NOT work for me!!!
470168 tn?1237474845 Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (after 25 years) and have a son diagnosed as on the autistic spectrum. I am noticing that he is getting pain in/around his shoulder joint usually lasting for 24 hours. I started with the same symptoms. Does anyone else have both these conditions within the family and especially anyone with autism and fibromyalgia. On a different topic, I have had alot of success recently using dietry intervention.
Avatar f tn Hi! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. I have horrible pain and my doctors are trying to work with me to find a treatment that doesn't involve heavy pain meds. I have serious issues with my digestive system and so most pain medicine such as vicoden(sp?) or any of those types constipate me. I was hoping for a natural suggestion to talk with my doctor about.
659608 tn?1318292966 I also take muscle relaxant for pain when pain gets excruciating. Otherwise, I tolerate it as much as I could. Tread your day gently.
470168 tn?1237474845 Oh, and I am on both a lupus med and a fibromyalgia med... I am taking Lyrica for the pain, which has been recently approved for fibromyalgia. It knocks a lot of pain out, but I warn you if you aren't on it... it makes you gain weight if you don't watch what you eat. As long as you keep an eye on it, though, you should only gain 5 pounds initially which generally comes off after a few weeks. I am also taking plaquenil, which is used for lupus people.
Avatar m tn Even just walking down the street can seem like a feat at times. • Muscle and joint pain. My muscles and joints are soar all the time. It feels as though I have arthritis although I have been tested for it and do not have it. My neck is probably my largest complaint as it is so soar that I have a constant headache. If I do anything even slightly physical I will be even more sick and soar the following day.
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...
794091 tn?1264989939 Then a week later they said that I had BP I, and then it all made sense. Congrats on recovering from alcohol!!! I did not have trouble with that as much as I had problems with pain meds... It's a constant worry of mine, because I hurt all the time... The only thing I cannot relate to directly is HIV. How is everything going with that though? When I'm manic I don't only worry obsessively but I turn into someone who looks OCD. I clean clean, and rearrange my room 5 times, buy a lot of junk...
1852058 tn?1320162300 *glutamine (glutamate) and succinate (the precursors of GABA) * low levelsB1 and B6 * low minerals zinc, manganese and iron * chronic stress and pain * alcohol withdrawal * inadequate sleep * low levels of progesterone * mercury and lead exposure 4. GABA supplementation is associated with extremely few side effects. 5. Uptake of supplemental GABA is limited because of the Blood-Brain-Barrier , so larger dosage is recommended by scientists.
363682 tn?1299492962 To date, I would say that, after all the loud clicking from my neck and spine, my 'pain-after-alcohol' has reduced by around 20%-30% - altho' I'm still getting the odd 'thumper' from time to time. Strangely enough, as I may have mentioned before, exerting finger pressure (in my case) to the left of my neck vertebrae relieved the headache considerably. And this is where the chiropractor is now working - without me telling him this.
Avatar n tn Hi! The popping and pain could be due to costochondritis. The inflammation around the joint area gives sharp pain on taking a breath. This can also cause tenderness on pressing the area which pains. An orthopedic doctor can diagnose this for you. Generally there is no cause. However it can be due to infection, blow, injury, or fibromyalgia. It usually goes away on its own. Otherwise it can be treated with muscle relaxants, and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs.

Avatar f tn In the meantime, i am eating every 2 hours to prevent low blood sugar and am again suffering with severe nighttime elbow and knee pain. I am a 40 year old female, non smoker, no alcohol or drug use. We live on a farm and produce our own meat including chicken, beef and pork, as well as our own produce. I make our own bread and home can much of what I can't buy in the grocery store. I think this might be metabolic syndrome or perhaps fibromyalgia. Any thoughts appreciated.
Avatar f tn Hi Dr. Nicolson, My mom thinks she might have fibromyalgia, but how can we be certain? Is there a test she can take? Thank you in advance!
