Fibromyalgia pain diaphragm

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia pain diaphragm

fibromyalgia

1830047 tn?1321671393 I have atypical migraines which attack the same area as the fibromyalgia...intestines. I get nausea, bone pain in my core area and intestional distress with a slight headache. Feels like the flu. I take topomax for the migraines morning and night which helps. I am so light sensitive that I have to stay home most of the time and have blackout shades. The diet for migraine is different than fibromyalgia so I walk the fence and follow a modified diet that is organic and healthy.
Avatar n tn I also have irritable bowel syndrome, which is an accompanying condition of FMS, which causes stomach cramps, among other things. While I don't have pain in my stomach muscles, I do have diaphragm issues, which is common in FMS. I get winded very easily because of my weakened diaphragm. It would be a very good idea to discuss this with your doctor on your next visit.
Avatar f tn It can also cause back pain and rib pain due to the constriction, and I would imagine in fibro, the pain would even be worse.
Avatar m tn However in January she started experiencing severe abdominal pain (mainly located in the lower left quadrant, but recently has been much more acute and seems to travel from the upper left to upper right just below the diaphragm). She went to her pain clinic and they advised her that it didn't seem related to her fibromylagia and to go and get it checked out.
Avatar f tn I am wondering is this may be referred pain rather than actual breast pain. The pain may actually originate in the esophageal or stomach area, or may be a diaphragm pain that is referred to the breast. As you know your breast has absolutely nothing to do with eating and digestion. Is it possible that this pain is actually do to a digestive process. Sometimes a condition called gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) can produce similar symptoms.
Avatar m tn The reason why i'm here is because since a long time ago more than one year The reason why I am here is because for over a year and half I have suffered from infections and pain in the body multiple chronic conditions. The pain that I feel is so hard it can be sometimes in my back (lungs) like a muscle spasms. And sometimes I feel it in my Thoracic diaphragm like a electric shock along my body. Chronic infections are more common like: tonsillitis, flu, allergies, and fever .
Avatar f tn Yesterday i had a sudden onset of sharp pain under my ribs on the right side. The pain increased with inspiration and some position changes. The pain eases spontaneously. I had a normal CBC, CMP, and lipase. My ddimer was elevated as expected. I had a CT PE which was normal and an abdominal ultrasound of the RUQ which was also normal. I was sent home on valium in hopes that this was some sort of muscle spasm, perhaps of the diaphragm. The valium does nothing.
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The chest pain and trouble in swallowing could be due to gastric reflux. Another possibility is hiatal hernia, where a portion of stomach herniates into the chest cavity through the diaphragm. Both can be diagnosed by an endoscopy. Crohn’s disease and IBS too often cause nonspecific pains. Also along with gastric reflux and hiatal hernia, ask your doctor to rule out diabetes and hypothyroidism. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn your liver is right next to your diaphragm, and also causes referred pain to your shoulder when irritating the diaphragm in other pathologies (best example i can think of is actually an inflamed gallbladder, cholecystitis, which is also right next to your diaphragm causes shoulder/scapula pain).
155534 tn?1275415855 I have GERD and that's not the same type of feeling I'm having...Thisisn't a burnung pain but rather a very sharp stabbing pain that gets worst when I breathe deeply,cough or lean foward...It helps to hold my chest and brace for the anticipated pain...But I will definately be going back to the Dr. for this..even if it's just for my own peace of mind..Thank you for the advice..I will be sure to bring these things up at my next visit.. Would a pulminary embolism or pleurisy show up in an x-ray???
Avatar n tn sutured into place while closing off the diaphragm so that it could not migrate back. NOW the pain is EXACTLY 1 inch below my diaphragm. I have had diverticulitis episodes in the past so I am familiar with the difference in the intensity & location. I keep a diary so I am familiar with all items such as foods that I ingested the previous day. The sweating & beginning of the pain is what wakes me.
Avatar f tn I have a load of physical problems but I have gotten a pain under my right arm at the rib cage not below it. This is very painful to the touch and feels like the nerves are sending shooting pains if it is touched. It started a couple of days ago and it has gotten worse from the time it started. Laying in bed is when it is at its worst. does not matter what position I have tried taking anti inflammatory and using a heat pad on it with no help.
Avatar m tn You mentioned that you are fatigued, this could also be fibromyalgia, it can cause the symptoms you are having as well. A blood test can help to rule this out.
Avatar n tn Pain in the left chest area can be due to stomach issues (GERD or hiatal hernia), spleen issues, due to an abscess below the left diaphragm, a hematoma (localized collection of blood), an abscess, or a muscle pull. Pain under left ribs is often due to acidity with gastric reflux or hiatal hernia. Take a late night snack. Raise head end of bed. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks and spicy food.
1207048 tn?1282177904 Hi Jess, I live in constant chronic pain, mostly from spasticity/fibromyalgia and rarely have a day I can say is comfortable. But after a few years of this, I have managed to manage it with the help of a good pain doc. I hate medication as it all seems to trash my digestive system but that I can manage too. I have given in and now take a cocktail of the following to keep sane. Gabapentin 300 mg 3 times a day for nerve pain Valium 2.
Avatar n tn When the back pain went away but the chest pain came back, I went a third time to a different doctor in the same office. She could not find any reason for my pain, did not do any tests but did a quick breast exam. She did not feel anything out of the ordinary, but when she pressed on by breast it hurt. This was a day before my period started. She said maybe it was a pulled muscle. The pain sometimes feels like it is in the front part of my chest, sometimes my breast hurts also.
Avatar n tn I have been to the hospital 3 times for chest pain, mostly on the left side, left arm pain (sometimes numb, sometimes achey), and sharp pain in my upper back. They ran an EKG, CT scan (they thought i had a blood clot in my lungs), and a chest x-ray. Their results where all basically the same, that it was anxiety or indigestion. Now, I have been on Zoloft for a long time now for anxiety, but when I started having chest pains and numbness in my arm, I began having panic attacks.
Avatar n tn ) so I don't quite belive in fibromyalgia since it is a diagnosis of exclusion (please don't write hate mail!!!!) Maybe if all the tests come back negative, it is fibromyalgia. My pain is back after being gone for 2 years. I'm am under an ungodly amount of stress, anger and fear. They say fibromyalgia is trigerred by those things....I'll post after my tests. I look forward to any ideas anyone has to manage the discomfort in the meantime.
Avatar n tn Flank pain also awakens me after 5-6 hours of sleep, just like you the pain subsidizes after I wake up and move around for a few minutes. Base on my experience, the pain is muscular. As we sleep, our body temperature may slightly drop, leading to a muscular pain/spasm around the kidneys/lower back area. As I am sitting here in this cold library, I can feel the flank pain.
Avatar n tn After an hour or two, the pain basically disappears. The pain seems to be emanating from my spine, and tensing up the back muscles nearest the spine. I have been seeing a chiropractor/massage therapist for about 4 weeks now, and it has not helped, because the pain is only after I sleep! I am 23 years old. I help my dad deliver produce 2 times a week in the morning, and I am also a full time sales associate at Sears selling electronics (which I'm on my feet all day.
Avatar n tn I'll share my story and some of the techniques I have used for the pain and where I sought treatment. I am by no means a medical professional, but I have had recurrent issues in various stages for more than 25 years. Yes, get a cup of tea and get comfy. This is long. I have the similar pain in/under the right shoulder blade as described and sometimes in my neck so bad my ears hurt too. It started when I was on crutches after knee surgery and went to one crutch/cane for about three weeks.
Avatar n tn I am a male, 46yrs old 6ft and weigh 175 lbs. My pain comes and goes and has for about 6 months. It is not severe pain, but at times is more annoying than anything. It feels like there is something in there pinching me. I went to an internal med MD in July. He ran blood tests that all came back fine. He sent me to have an abdominal ultrasound which showed only "healthy" organs. No dilated bile duct, no gall stones, liver enzymes were in normal range.
Avatar n tn I have similar pain, but my pain is constant and dull. It does not seem to be affected by food, although I find myself bloated most of the time and I can't seem to burp when I feel the need to. The pain becomes completely unbearable when I run, it feel like something just under the lowest right rib is about to burst or tear if I don't stop running. I had the whole battery of tests a year ago and the gallbladder, kidneys and abdomen all checked out.
Avatar f tn I try massaging my breast and shoulders and that seems to help a tiny bit. Usually the pain is very dull...but one night I woke up in excruciating pain for about 10 seconds, then it went back to being dull. I'm 24, and I am being treated for Anxiety/Panic Disorder. My Psychiatrist does not think it's related. Does ANYONE have ANY ideas about what could be going on with me?!?!?!
Avatar n tn Lately, the pain has gotten worse. Just when I am sitting at my desk chair, the pain is extremely unpleasant. I think the pain comes from carrying around books all day, because I am a college student. I have an office job on campus doing things on a computer, and at times the pain is so bad it is distracting and causes me not to work. I have been to massage therapists twice and they never seem to help. Do you think I should visit a chiropractor? Has it helped anyone else with the pain?
Avatar n tn The thing is i already have so many problems i have,chronic pain,chronic advanced fibromyalgia,siezures,spasms daily,7 protuding discs,coxydinia,motor V.A. fractured pelvis,fractured L/leg,broke both legs and both arms,at times can't control bladder or bowels and had seven major surgeries and holding on 3 but some doctors are scared to do surgery on me,hey but that can wait and also facial migrain and severe numbness.
Avatar n tn Hello, Some of the conditions with widespread body aches are fibromyalgia(a disorder classified by the presence of chronic widespread pain and tactile allodynia(pain even on touching) ,chronic fatigue syndrome(often manifests with widespread myalgia and arthralgia, cognitive difficulties, chronic mental and physical exhaustion) ,polymyositis (means 'many muscle inflammation') and polymyalgia rheumatica(an inflammatory disorder that causes widespread muscle aching and stiffness, primarily in y
Avatar n tn I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much. I have been to about 30 doctors- including ENT's allergists, neurologists, chiropracters, opthamologists. psychologists, dentists and everything else u can think of.
Avatar n tn have you found anything that helps the pain? Do you experience it all the time? Have you ever had a back problems/pain? How about gastroesophageal reflux (GERD)? In my case, I'm now wondering if either of these conditions could be causing the ULQ pain/sensation. Thanks for any info - Carol D.
