Fibromyalgia pain at night

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia pain at night


Avatar f tn 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. I am on a lot of medication, as I also have Bipolar.
1399618 tn?1286469531 It was thought to have been caused by having Back Surgery. However, he cant' sleep at night, its up and down constantly. Even sleep walking or sitting up sleeping. When walking you can see the pain on his face. If he doesn't have something to lean on ie. shopping cart etc. forget walking. The pain is excruciating. He is on meds' for his back issues' oxy's and endocet however this doesn't seem to touch the pain area in his joints other than his back.

Avatar n tn A satellite myofascial point is a highly irritable spot in a muscle that becomes inactive because the muscle is in the region of another trigger pain. The pain of fibromyalgia is generalized, occurring above and below the waist and on both sides of the body. On the other hand, myofascial pain is more often described as occurring in a more limited area of the body, for example, only around the shoulder and neck, and on only one side of the body. Take care and regards !
Avatar f tn 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. The meds I am on now help more than anything else ever has and I am so thankful! I still have pain but it is a lot easier to deal with now.
Avatar n tn Hi I was diagnosed about 6 years ago with fibro and I have all the fun stuff that seems to go along with it such as irritable bowel syndrome, in the last year I have become completely heat intolerant and I am literally dripping wet at work after just one hour and I work in an air conditioned building, I sweat at home, at night sleeping. I am absolutely miserable.
Avatar n tn I have been having chest pain for quite some time now. For the past 2 weeks it comes & goes. It is worse sometimes (it varies from day to day) when I eat, when I exercise, when I get too stressed, when I get hot & when I lie down. It is like a sharp nagging pain in the middle of my rib cage sometimes lasting more than a few minutes. I have always also had problems with shortness of breath & dizziness. I am also tired all the time.
Avatar n tn I have fibromyalgia and was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia after many years of suffering with severe pain. I still have pain all the time. It is hard to get of bed some days.
1033336 tn?1252509731 It did help to ease the pain but was not complete. Following then onwards, I have experince pain trobbing at the back, in between the joint of knees, in between the hip joint, upper and lower both of the legs, at the joints of the arms, in between fingers, at the palm of hands and feet. Am i suffering from fibromyalgia? Do i need to do a full body check-up for diagnosis?
358486 tn?1294779988 this leads to Fibromyalgia, but not in all the cases, of course. It is also noted that those who complain of more pain after the surgery, have more chance of developing fibromyalgia. One more reason thought to be implicated in post surgery fibromyalgia is ..... the neck is hyper-extended while doing the intubation and this constitutes a neck injury! Hope that helps.
Avatar n tn I am not pain free at all but sometimes what doesnt work for one person could work for another person. you could try magnetic mattress cover which are recommended for all over body pain. .Some people do benefit from them .For me unfortunately it didnt help.The other thing i have started to take recently is a combination of glucosamine,chondroitin and MSM which is a natural type of anti inflammatory as i have a lot of pain all over my body. I will have to wait and see if it help's.
Avatar f tn Sleep is essential especially for fibromyalgia or any type of pain. If you can get 6 hours minimum you can better deal with the pain. Have you ever had a sleep study? I requested one and I have sleep apnea. I also take trazadone. It is an older sleep medication that is taken at bedtime. You and your doctor can decide if taking something would help. To me your top list would be your headaches, not sleeping and pain.
710094 tn?1229312306 They're still not at a normal stage, though, and I will still feel the pain in my right kidney from time to time. Don't put this off. See your doctor and find out what the source of the nausea and vomiting is!
1568087 tn?1296363786 Pain very bad all over today. Fatigue in morning and at night.
Avatar n tn ) Other thing it is helping with is my Raynauds. My hands and feet aren't constantly cold. I don't get that tingling sensation (pins and needles or feet going to sleep, but for me it's liek the whole leg or the hands). I have to check back in with my doctor next month. These are things for you to ask the doctor about the brain fog. I guess every pill has a side effect. You just have to figure out which you'd rather have.
Avatar n tn i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few months ago and i've been monitoring some of my symptoms but would like to see if anyone else has the same problems. every month when it's that time of the month is when everything gets the worse for me. my eyes are dryer, skin, mouth everything. migranes flare up, numbness in the face & i have trouble sleeping. it starts right before my period maybe about a week or a week and a half before and ends maybe a few days after the last day of my period.
Avatar f tn I just live with the pain. I am tired throughout the day. I cannot sleep at night. I was wondering if all of this could be due to fibromyalgia?
Avatar n tn I've been having left leg pain - only at night. The pain is dull, nagging pain throughout my entire leg that doesn't go away with a massage or moving around. This pain has been bothering me after I had a baby. However, before I was pregnant, my legs falls asleep while I'm asleep. When I get up in the middle of the night to use the restroom, I would fall flat on my face. I'm not sure if these two correlated, but thought I should mention it. Any info would be appreciated!

Avatar n tn I listen to a lot of loud high energy rock to help me focus on work and keep my mind off pain at night. If the pain from one thing gets out of control, it pushes my FM pain upward too.
3795221 tn?1348163075 I did reasearch into Subutex when it first became popular at the pain center in my area. I did not care for the severe withdrawals that people were discussing, as well as the fact that I tend to have severe reactions to meds anyway.
Avatar n tn Warm baths, spas, or hot tubs are also excellent for relieving fibromyalgia back pain. They help to encourage restful sleep, which gives your body the time it needs to heal itself. Back Supports Back supports have long been used by those with upper and lower back pain, and can work wonders for you, especially if you spend long hours in front of the computer at the office. Invest in a back support made out of foam or synthetic materials, as these are sturdy and breathable.
358486 tn?1294779988 As a fibro patient you are aware that we dont sleep correctly, or get real sleep because the pain wakes us up through out the night, without us even knowing it. The pain effects every muscle, every ligament and tendon, and every movement we make hurts. I used to be uneducated and believed that Fibro was just psychosomatic, until I became educated and know better now.

Avatar f tn Hi, Can you be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia but only experience pain at night? Every night about 20 minutes after I lay down my body aches on the side I am laying on. It starts to ache and throb so bad that I need to switch sides. Then the other side aches and throbs so I flip-flop all night long but never really get relief. I feel like I am 100 years old when I try to turn from one side to the other.
Avatar n tn then attempt to look at your hand. Pain indicates that your TrPs are especially sensitive. Then, continuing to look up at your hand, look out from the upper corner of each eye separately. Medications are also usually prescribed to treat eyesight complications; guaifenesin (which liquefies mucus) is a uricosuric drug that helps the treatment of FMS because it helps expel uric acid from the body.
Avatar m tn ) For nerve pain you have to be at a higher dose (at least 150mg or more) and titration does take longer than with Lyrica or Neurontin. 25mg increase per week is acceptable to let your body get used to it to avoid confusion or anxiety. I started to feel pain relief of my nerve pain once I hit that dose. I have nerve dysfunction in my spine and I have a numb left foot. It began helping me once I reached that level.
