Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia pain cause


Avatar n tn does anyone know how long can secondary fibro last, my rheumy says that my cervical fusion in march of this year has caused all my pain and fatigue due to it being the cause of this secondary fibro. I did have a positive ana but the rheumy says he does not read much into ana tests.
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 n tn I suffer from fibromyalgia and neurophy daily. When the pain is severe I can hardly stand it. Are there any new approaches to this condition. I am taking vicoden, cymbalta, pamelor and neurotyn?
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 Simple as that may sound, it does cause back pain...most men do not think about this as it's natural to carry it there. Another problem can be caused by walking or standing a lot during the day. Make sure you have a good set of comfortable shoes. I'm sorry that I can't be of more help. My husband suffers with back problems as well and I know it's painful. I hope you can find some relief soon.
358486 tn?1294779988 A good website I read was fibromyalgia-symptoms dot either com or org, I forget. Dr.Abhijeet, what exactly is the cause after surgery? It's unrelenting and literally can ruin your life. There has to be an underlying cause???
Avatar f tn Hey Suzy. Welcome to the forum. Oxycodone @ 10mg injected will produce the SAME results as morphine for most people. I'm mentioning this to point out that these types of drugs are opioid drugs, potentially habit forming narcotic drugs. The fact that they are prescribed legally, does not make them any less dangerous than street drugs, other than the fact that their "quality" and strength are consistent with what they claim.
Avatar m tn My son is 14 and has been suffering for a year. Symptoms started with very bad chest pain but all blood results came back clear. An endoscopy revealed mild acid reflux. 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.
Avatar f tn Having fibromyalgia I too have many digestion issues and that alone can cause pain. If you can try to get your digestion and sleep under some balance that can help you. There are supplements called enzymes. You take one with each meal. It helps you better digest your food. Then there are foods. If you can try to limit or eliminate foods that cause pain. Simple sugars (cakes, cookies, soda). Also white flour, so white bread, white potatoes, white rice.
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 Also, at times a muscle biopsy may be needed to diagnose. Treatment usually depends on the cause and pain killers are given if the pain is severe. Discuss these options with your consulting doctor. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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.
Avatar f tn I have seen him 3 times in 8 years with joint pain and fatigue and a possitive ANA and rhemotod factors and so forth. He said D wouldn't cause the pain i'm in and pressed on a few spots and announced that I had fibro. I am hoping when I bring my D levels up I feel better. I have been having weird symtoms for 6 or so weeks. They very much sound like what everyone else is talking about as far as symptoms.
Avatar n tn One of the most common hormone deficiencies that can cause or exacerbate fibromyalgia is growth hormone.Growth hormone is secreted from the pituitary gland. Like all hormones, growth hormone levels peak at a young age and decline as we get older. Growth hormone is one of the master hormones of the body. It can control the release and balance of the other endocrine glands Growth hormone can be given only by injection. It is a bioidentical hormone.
710094 tn?1229312306 Then I got on the fentynal patch for pain and felt I could work cause it helped my pain tremendously. I have also taken Norco for 3 years. I recently went off of my patch due to no insurance. (It's very expensive). I actually feel better. Pain is worse but I'm not as tired and sleepy. I've had all kinds of weird little things like the fibro fog, (confusion, forgetfulness, clumsiness), but nothing like what you described. I just had carpal tunnel surgery.
1033336 tn?1252509731 The characteristic feature of Fibromyalgia is a muscle pain mostly in neck, back, thighs, and hips. There is presence of specific tender points in these areas that trigger the pain. Along with this there is morning stiffness in the muscles, brain fog, dizziness and other neurological symptoms. Since you are suffering from pain specifically located at the joints, and it started after the flu, the pains are related to the viral infection.
Avatar f tn htm One thing I can tell you about high blood pressure and fibromyalgia is that some fibromyalgia medications can actually cause high blood pressure in fibromyalgia patients ! You might want to consider posting your symptoms in MedHelp's fibro/CFS forum (I am one of the CL's in there) and we can make sure that other possible conditions have been ruled out (Chari Malformation, lyme, etc.). We also have a wealth of information about fibromyalgia in our Health Pages.
4861077 tn?1360159739 Your doctor will be able to prescribe an antidepressant and a narcotic analgesic that are effective in relieving the pain in individuals suffering from fibromyalgia. Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs are also advised in certain instances. Make sure you get plenty of rest so that you do not get overtired. Some moderate forms of exercise like aerobics will also help with regard to the stiffness. Acupuncture, yoga, massage therapy and magnetic therapy may also be useful.
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 m tn I was having fuzzy and double vision. My eye doctor suggested getting my prescription with prisms. I could not believe the difference in vision. Not sure if this could be a possibility but thought I would share my experience. I also have fibromyalgia and RA.
1168938 tn?1327157832 I have many issues and asked rheumatologist if I could have fibromyalgia, she said I don't fit criteria what do you think? Joint issues, muscles pains, sleepless nights, depression, cognitive issues, brain fog, always tired, IBS, Gerd, cramps in hands, hips and feet, temperature varies from boiling hot to cold, weakness in muscles and twitching, difficulty walking I'm unsteady on my feet and that's just a few of my symptoms.
Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia has been studied in terms of lower levels of a brain neurotransmitter called serotonin causing lower pain threshold or an increased sensitivity to pain. The lower pain thresholds may be caused by the reduced effectiveness of the body’s natural endorphin painkillers and the increased presence of a chemical called substance P which amplifies pain signals.
Cat Methadone is a very long acting narcotic pain reliever that is often used for maintenance therapy for persons who have been addicted to morphine or heroin. It is also used for chronic pain. Both drugs cause habituation, and both have the potential for addiction. Neither drug gives the "high" that is associated with some of the pain relievers (eg morphine), so are they felt to be less prone to abuse. Hope this helps!
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.
1373852 tn?1307846648 I would like to know if drugs such as levaquin and cipro and the medicines they use to keep a person in a medical coma can cause fibromyalgia or symptoms like it that persist once the person is recovered from the original illness.I had a bad asthma attack nine months ago,was put in a medical coma for respiratory failure because of it.I have had every test or almost.cbc,autoimmune,hiv,hep c,b,a.I have had emg,eeg,nerve conduction,brain mri,cervical spine.
3202069 tn?1345408082 I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 yrs maybe longer. It is very hard to deal with. My legs bother me alot. I am on pain meds and eating certain foods make it worse. I go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain.
