fibromyalgia

1336585 tn?1275709112 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 f tn the migraine marathon seems to be slowing somewhat...so far today I've only had one and it's almost 5pm. That's an improvement. But the body/fibromyalgia pain is bad. My hips and legs and arms and hands and shoulder are killing. It's constant and med resistant. It is also frustrating because I don't really one hundred percent know if the pain is all from fibromyalgia or if possibly something else like the ms I have been examining. I suppose I could have both.
Avatar m tn Hi everyone, this is my first post so it might be kind of long but any help would really be appreciated. I am 22 years old and I am in pain every day. My back and neck are the main culprits. Also I have severe headaches or migraines somewhat often. My brother has a toddler and I can't even crawl after him because my knees hurt. My knees only really seem to hurt though when I am on them .

2126606 tn?1346345124 This Saturday, May 12, is National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, so it’s a perfect time to talk about fibromyalgia as it relates to opiate use. Over the past few years we’ve seen an increased number of fibromyalgia patients that have started receiving prescriptions for painkillers to address their chronic pain symptoms. As a Registered Addiction Specialist, this is extremely concerning to me especially at a time when we are also seeing prescription painkiller use exploding nationwide.
769745 tn?1345746412 In particular, fibromyalgia sufferers are apt to feel neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pack and pain in the waist, ribs, buttocks, and knees. A common example of one such symptom is pungent or strong-smelling urine. The patient may feel embarrassed to even bring up the topic with her physician. Genitourinary symptoms involve the private parts and it is never easy to discuss these details, even with medical professionals.

Avatar n tn He said that Cymbalta has been known to work for pain. After I started taking the Cymbalta I had an increased reduction in pain except for my head. After 2 months the Cymbalta isn't working as well. I noticed recently that my left pupil was sometimes larger than the right one especially when bending over. I had an MRI with contrast 3 weeks ago. I called a week ago and was told that it would be read in a few days and they would call me weither it was normal or not. That was over a week ago.
Avatar f tn IC stands for Interstitial Cystitis (painful bladder disease). My doctor said that they all could be related, and because I have all of them plus IBS, that they can all flare at the same time and make all of them worse at one time. So I've been in constant pain lately. Going to have a robotic laproscopy some time in Feb to remove the scar tissue/adhesions, seperate the ovary, fallopian tube and bowels from eachother and hopefully save the ovary and tube. Has anyone ever had this done?

771990 tn?1341779376 Today was more about the Fibromyalgia pain in my upper back and spasms down my arm. This is the most aggravating pain. Its almost as if it burns. On top of all of that all day is a cold I am trying to come down with and I always worry because of the COPD I have and the asthma. Been taking that strong prescription cough medicine that helps with rest but with everything elese I am taking for pain I hope the mix is ok.

1033336 tn?1252506131 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 n tn In the last 2 years I have had constant aching pain in my legs and feet and this pain affects my sleep and daily life. The pain is constant often worsening at night and when I awaken in the mornings. I have had a complete MRI of my spine with no major problems identified. I have given up smoking 6mnths ago. What could be the cause? I am at my wits end as the GP is no help in diagnosing the problem. Any suggestions would be welcomed.
Avatar n tn A flare is usually accompanied by constant pain and lethargy. You might find difficulty to sit, stand or lie for even some time. the triggers known are strong emotions like depression and anger or stress, too much exercise, beginning of an illness, cold,damp weather or extreme heat, any stress on body. That noisy neighbor could affect your health indirectly by causing anger or stress in you. Hope this helps. Take care.
