fibromyalgia

373367 tn?1246405635 I would wake up with it and go to bed with it, muscle pain with no apparent cause or reason. (other than lyme) So I took an epsom salt bath (really hot) and it actually improved last night and is still a lot better this morning. I had been taking regular baths and they had helped briefly, but this seems to help past a few hours. It is very frustrating to have constant pain and not be able to take an medication or find any relief!!
Avatar n tn However I can say that for natural relief, Epsom salt bathes are fantastic. Ginger root is a nice systemic ani-inflammatory. Reiki and Tai chi and Yoga are all good for pain management. When you can move of course. Even Acupuncture has shown good benefits. It is snowing in PDX today and I cannot go outside with my kids, the bad weather has caused my Fibro to flair and I am on the couch with a blanket.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have severe back and neck pain. I had back sugery 4 months ago with severe pain in the surgical area again. I also have severe neck pain and stiffness. I have a severe burning pain in my shoulders and neck along with numbness. I am not getting any answers from the doctors, and I have also been suffering with severe daily headaches.MRI of brain said normal.
1577364 tn?1296693384 The only thing I would add is to geminigirl's advice is to put some good old fashioned epsom salts into your warm bath.
Avatar m tn can help. Also, a good,multi mineral supplement. Sometimes soaking in a nice hot bath with Epsom salt helps as well.
Avatar f tn I use Magnesium Malate, Epsom salt baths and Cayenne pepper cream for relief. All these work on the nerve fibres. Take care, Laura http://www.livestrong.
216278 tn?1308864682 But hot soaks (warm baths) with Epsom salt helps, too. I have also pulled myself off meds - trying to go without. I was on Cymbalta -which I stopped. I'm still on Flexeril, Trazadone and Naproxen - but I try to take minimally and use walks, massage, ice packs, and warm baths to alleviate my pain. It helps me - I hope it helps you guys. I would love to email more if you'd like.
Avatar n tn 1. Epsom salt baths, use at least 1 cup of salts. The epsom has magnesium which helps the muscles function and repair themselves. This will especially help if you take a bath before you go to bed as it may lessen the pain and weakness upon waking 2.There's gels with menthol that help relieve pain. The have them in the drugstore, but I order from iherb, much cheaper for the brands without all the chemicals.
Avatar f tn Can someone please tell me what these knots are and how to treat them? I use a heating pad, hot baths, epsom salt and mineral oil menthol bath oil, massage, icy hot and other topicals, have tried acupuncture. At my wit's end, chronic pain is so draining...
Avatar f tn Check with your doctor first. You could get magnesium through an Epsom Salt bath soak, magnesium-rich foods, and/or supplements. The safer and more effective forms include: Taurate, Glycinate, and Citrate. Some food sources of Potassium: potatoes (including chips), OJ, bananas, cantaloupes, and beer.
Avatar f tn I do yoga and just simple stretching everyday throughout the day. I use hot and cold compresses, take Epsom salt baths and use topical pain relievers. Oh, and I pray A LOT!!!! ALL DAY!
Avatar n tn If you've never tried them, you can get them at any pharmacy. They work really great for muscle pain and spasms. Epsom salt numbs the nerves. Your defenitly not alone in this and I'm sure there will be other members will be by to give you some suggestions too. Keep us updated on how your search for a good treatment is going!
Avatar f tn I have Lupus and fibromyalgia. I do find that an epsom salt bath does help. I take magnesium, not sure if it helps but am afraid to not take it. when you get a mix of meds and supplements that works then you don't want to mess with them.
12133699 tn?1423616556 Welcome to MH! Your story is similar to many...started with legit pain and rx and before you know it, running out early. I also refused to buy off the street (only because I was worried I would get caught), but realized I was an addict to those pills. Pill counting, stressing about running out, waiting for refill. We all react differently to WD (withdraw) depending on our health, age, amount we used, how long we used. Typically, you can expect nasty flu-like symptoms for 4-5 days.
Avatar f tn this is 1/3 phyical and 2/3 mental so be ready to fight it out on both fronts.....epsom salt baths go a long way in reliving most of the symptoms force the fluids pick up a case of gator aid you will go threw it rent some movies for the next few days you probably wont sleep and I have said this a million times ''but you just got to be ok without being ok for a wile'' this to shall pass so post and post some more this forum was my life line and will be yours also may God be with you.....
Avatar m tn There are other factors, like slower circulation at night and less activities to keep the mind engaged in things other than focusing on pain! Try a nice epsom salt bath, or a transdermal magnesium treatment before bedtime. It will help you feel better. I hope this helps.
Avatar n tn Tens, SLC, Utah Acupuncture and Neuropathy Treatments to reset the nerves. LED Light Therapy (healing and circulation). Soak feet in epsom salt to draw out excess calcium deposits, ONLY 20 mins. Meditation to balance the mind boy and spirit. is there more ? yes .....
1533382 tn?1357965752 I would try soaking in a warm Epsom salt bath. Anytime I get achy whether from working out or just sleeping in a bad position it helps tremendously.
358304 tn?1409713092 Take some deep breaths and maybe do some good old Stretches and Soak in the tub with some Epsom salt. This should make you feel so much better, even if it is just for a short time. I also would go lay under a heating blanket when I got Back aches or Neck aches and so forth. That feels so good. going from a hot pad to a cold pad and back and fourth should help too. Well I do wish you the best. I guess I will go back over to my own area and leave this to the ones who know about Anxiety.
1355301 tn?1287971241 I have been taking 0-3 hydrocodone (.5/50) for fibromyalgia pain for years. I have extreme reactions to antidepressants and also to lyrica and neurotin. As well as many others. Hydrocodone is the only thing that will even touch the pain. On most days I take one in the morning just before I get to work at around 8:00 am. It will hang in there until about 1:30 or 2:00. I'll notice that I'm getting cold and starting to hurt. The more I hurt, the more I tense up, the colder I feel.
Avatar n tn mention in a site earlier this week. On my way to the store now to get some epsom salt. I have soaked only once before in my life in it, and it was after a full body massasge. I slept the best I can remember ever sleeping, but that one night was sooooo long ago. I hope a good soak will bring on the peaceful results it has before. We all deserve a better quality of life again.
Avatar n tn What you are writing giving me hope. I bought epsom salt and a plastic tub yesterday and took a hot bath for ½ hour and it mitigated the pain a bit. I am continuing the procedure. Also I will buy the book, when I feel I can afford it. I will watch this forum closely for any activity.
Avatar m tn ) I would try Epsom Salt baths and supplements with calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc and vitamin D I read that a Vitamin D deficiency can cause a lot of problems as can a magnesium deficiency. Magnesium is responsible for 300 different actions in our body. You are not alone, there are many people still suffering from the tx.
Avatar m tn The alternative type doctor who did the mitochondrial function (ATP etc) tests which were poo-pooed by the NHS has recommended a transdermal magnesium spray as well as Epsom salt baths. Do you think that's worth trying, or just go straight to oral mag glycinate?
Avatar n tn I wake every morning with horrible pain in lower back (kidney area) that radiates to the front of stomach (rib area). I have had battery of tests and found nothing. I am only able to sleep 5-6 hours before pain wakes me, also unable to take a deep breath until I get out of bed (very painful just to roll over), once I stand and get out of bed the pain almost immediately starts to ease. After about 20 minutes of walking around and after first morning void, pain disappears for remainder of day.
Avatar n tn didn't understand me when I tried to explain it to her. What is going on? Has anyone else experienced this kind of unbearable pain? If the pain lasted even a min. I feel like I would just pass out and die from the pain. Honestly, it's worst than labor pains. I never know when it's going to occur. And when it does happend, I have to be standing to get through it, I can't be sitting. I've also noticed that after the pain passes I'm out of breath and dizzy. What is going on?
Avatar f tn When another doctor said pinched nerve, he said pinched nerve and changed his mind later and now says don't worry, it is only fibromyalgia. The past couple years, I've been bothered with lower back pain/sciatic nerve, and he said fibromyalgia. All areas of pins and needles went to numbness and itching. Imagine having your arm, leg, ankle, foot, and right side of your head to go to sleep. It was hard to walk, hard to use my arm, etc. I noticed blood on fingers after scratching my head.
Avatar n tn I get severe Glutenal cramping from walking so awkwardly to lessen the impact as sitting and walking seems to aggravate sciatic nerve due to added pressure on the disc. Lying down relieves leg pain. Acupuncture and physio can not relieve my pain more than temporaraly. Physio has given me exercises and also tape strapping to keep me standing straight, not crouching. I have had a few spine stretching treatments with a machine - pulling lower back down whilst strapped to a table.
Avatar m tn Two stray thoughts: -- are you taking magnesium supplements, or Epsom salt baths (= magnesium)? Might help the aches and pains. -- it seems to me it's the time of year that symptoms get worse for everyone. (I should put up a survey on that .....) So part of it may be seasonal. Hang on to the memory of those 'best 10 days' -- you WILL get there again.
356518 tn?1322267242 The only place where tolerance doesn't seem to be inevitable is something called central sensitization, which is what causes pain in a susceptible group of people. It has been implicated in some cases of fibromyalgia, pain from shingles, pain from diabetic neurpathy, and some types of back pain that linger after damage has been repaired. (But not all types...
