Fibromyalgia pain hiv

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia pain hiv


Avatar f tn Many individuals with other liver diseases do not suffer the pain seen in hepatitis C. And there is a high prevalence of fibromyalgia in hepatitis C patients; this is important for clinicians to appreciate, as the recognition of fibromyalgia in patient with hepatitis C will prevent assumptions of pain being due to liver disease—and perhaps allow for a more focused and correct treatment approach.
527890 tn?1263786727 Does anyone know if RA/AS type symptoms interact with HIV to instead create symptom list that fits more in line with Fibromyalgia. Has anyone been incorrectly diagnosed with RA and/or AS only to find out you have Fibromyalgia? Does anyone have a dual diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and HIV that can point me to some layman termed studiies? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Open to questions.
Avatar m tn i have also contracted a cold sore(first ever) as of today july 3 2013 and have read that this can be related to hiv, i do have a friend who had a cold sore and was sharing with her about a week ago so im conflicted as it could be either ?
489725 tn?1280056153 hello all new to this forum i have ibs for a few yrs now and was just wondering does it go hand in hand with fibromyalgia,my muscles lately are always tired esp around my shoulders and seem to get a lot of chest pain under arms comes and goes a lot at night time .even if i exercise and i do everyday my muscles ache and i am by no means over doing it.
Avatar m tn All my arthritis blood work has been negative along with HIV, syphillis, lymes etc. Everything I read about fibro is people experience a lot of pain. I really don't have any pain. It's more of a tingling weaknesses in my shoulders and in my thighs. I also have a bit of a nagging dull ache in my right groin area. The nights I do sleep well, which is rare, the next day I feel great. I am a male in my 40's and very concerned.
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.

Avatar f tn Fibromyalgia just *****.. Nothing else to describe it is there.. I am 46.. I have had it since my early 20's.. It will move around and change areas or feel like it is everywhere on some days.. I have found that gentle stretching, meditation and warm to hot soaks are best. Memory foam beds are wonderful.. flexeril is one of my favorites that I can tell a difference with. It doesnt make it all go away but it makes it all tollerable..
975514 tn?1325001538 I have no one else to talk to about this except for my sister who also has fibromyalgia. She is the only one who truly knows what pain I am going through. But she has a doctor who is compassionate and sends her for all sorts of testing and doesn't mess around. But they live about three hours away and I know for a fact that I wouldn't be able to handle the drive like that. I can go one way but not both in one day. My kids would miss to much school and I would miss to much work.
Avatar n tn And every time it last about 3-5 minutes, and disappear completely (by pressing the area afterwards there is no further pain, so I guess it is not muscle injury). It seems that these pain occur in muscles/bones/joints. This is weird. Is it fibromyalgia? Does anyone have experience on similar situation? Any suggestions? Thanks a lot! P.s. I suspect it is HIV related, but assessment of my risk is low. So I guess it may be more a result of anxiety/depression...
Avatar m tn Can HIV infection create health disturbance for 3 and half months ? Problems include muscle pain,mild headache,dizziness,2nd time loose stools and weight loss of 3 kgs in 3 months ? No symptom of fever,rash,lymph node enlargement etc. Is there possibility for post 11&half weeks HIV -ve (HIV1&2) turned to be positive later? Have any one claimed so in this forum before ? I know cdc recommends for 12 weeks/3months.
Avatar n tn hi, I have *** musscle pain since last 3 months. I got heavy sneezing 1 day and after that *** muscle pain started & it longs since last 3 months.i m really worried. I took many medicines from doctors still pain is not going complletely. Pain observer\ during sitting & during night sleep so i got weakness sometimes. Is it related to HIv?? I also done hemoglobin test and says 15.4hemoglobin which is normal. I had casual kissing mouth to mouth before 6 months.
Avatar n tn For the past few months I have had intense pain that travels from joint to joint It started in the right foot about a week then went away completely. Moved to left knee then to left shoulder then to left foot then left knee agaiin and now in the left foot again. Each time it lasts about a week but this time the left foot has been hurting for almost two weeks. The pain almost completely immobilizes me.
Avatar m tn Another possibility is fibromyalgia. Apart from fibromyalgia multiple joint pain is seen in hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hasimotos thyroiditis, gout (can sometimes cause multiple joint pain), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, SLE, electrolyte disturbance particularly those involving calcium and magnesium, parathyroid gland problems, chondrocalcinosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Avatar f tn Please go through it with your parents and see what has not benn looked for. Multiple joint pain is seen in fibromyalgia, hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hashimotos thyroiditis, gout (can sometimes cause multiple joint pain), rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, SLE or lupus, electrolyte disturbance particularly those involving calcium and magnesium, parathyroid gland problems, chondrocalcinosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Avatar f tn the tests to determine this was an ELISHA TEST and a WESTERN BLOT TEST. same tests used for HIV. could it be at all possible that I could have HIV and not Lyme disease and they were diagnosed wrong? Im freaking out and very worried.
Avatar n tn Has been diagnosed as fibromyalgia or auto immune disorder. Am on methadone for 6 years now-I don't know what is worse-the pain or being a slave to the meds now...
Avatar m tn Arthritis or inflammation of joint that moves from joint to joint (migratory) can be due to Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, rheumatic fever, SLE, HIV, Lyme’s disease, sarcoidosis, Whipple’s disease, Henoch-Schnlein Purpura, bacterial endocarditis and gonoccoccal arthritis. Hashimotos thyroidits is another possibility. It can also be fibromyalgia and or chronic fatigue syndrome. If you face this problem only with products derived from milk than you could be having lactose or milk allergy.
468452 tn?1225968488 I have had this conversation so many times with so many medical professionals and the answer is, YES, YES, YES. The biggest mistake that you can make is to believe that the pain is not real. The pain may not be caused by an organic cause that can be fixed with medication but none the less the pain is real.
Avatar n tn however it is often precipitated by stress that causes localized spasms of arteries, which interferes with circulation of oxygen in the affected areas, causing pain. The pain may in turn cause fatigue, sleep disturbance, and anxiety. Pain complaints as a sole manifestation of stress would however be unlikely.
Avatar n tn About a year ago I used to room with a person that was my close friend and whom I recently learned has gotten HIV. I freaked out initially and started researching online everywhere to see if I was showing signs of infection. I did -not- engage in sexual contact with him nor am I homosexual. I did however notice that I was experiencing changes within my body. I also had protected sex with a prostitute in tijuana while i was in the navy around the same time frame.
Avatar m tn Extreme muscle weakness, intense pain and fatigue can be due to fibromyalgia, low Vit D, Low Vit B12, severe anemia, or low testosterone. Severe depression, insomnia and sleep disorders (hence a sleep study is a must), African sleeping sickness (if have been to that part), chronic fatigue syndrome, HIV and SLE or lupus are the other causes. Dermatomyositis or inflammation of muscle can be another cause. Please discuss these possibilities with your doctor if have not been looked into.
Avatar f tn I have been having this pain traveling from one spot to the other, one day its my elbow the next it could be one of my finger my back my neck etc...I could go weeks with not even one single pain, but when they are back its a torture and anti infl;amatory hardly works. I tested negative for RA rheumatoid arthritis, and OA osteo arthritis. any suggestion? thanks This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/1357111'>Traveling joint pain</a>.
Avatar m tn Anti inflammatories barely help, pain meds barely help, exercise and stretching makes it worse. I've gone through 6-7 doctors and rounds of tests. All I've gotten is a pile of medical bills and no answers. I test negative for arthiritis, Lyme, blood work is normal, the only factor that is off seems to be a measure for inflammation I have a 3 year old and 1 year old daughter and can't hold them or play with them. i'm 31 years old and feel as if i'm 90. Any one have any ideas?.
Avatar f tn and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar m tn After that muscle pain started that keeps moving around the body (like Fibromyalgia Pain). Its not very strong and last just 2-3mins. Has mostly been in arms and shoulder and sometimes in neck. Also, I have been feeling slight nausea for last 2-3 weeks. No real vomiting or diarrhea. Ulcer in mouth couple of times. I have ulcers in past because of sinus irritating my tonsils. These ulcer might have been the because of the same reason. I feel.
Avatar m tn I don't have the temp problems But I deal with the joint pain-much to how you described....I have been told I have Fibromyalgia.....something you may want to look into and there are meds that can help some people. I have read alot on lupus (as I have many other health issues) and if your mother has it you might not want to rule it might be in the beginning stages.
4982655 tn?1361984327 Every now and then, I get strange joint pain. I'm 18, healthy, active. I'm not sure what could be wrong. Last summer, I had a few areas that, one by one right after another, would just ache for a few days. It's happened here and there since then but these last few weeks have been miserable for me. I'm a housekeeper at an Alzheimer's home so I'm always busy, always on my feet. I began to have a soreness in my left big toe. It caused a limp, as the pain in my feet have seemed to be the worst.
19892408 tn?1502692887 5 weeks later I started experiencing pain in my thighs, knees, calves, buttocks, low-back, ribs, feet, hips, arms, fingers, toes, face and even my collar bone. I feel exhausted and anxious most of the time and have a hard time getting motivated to do anything. I have been tested for all STDs including HIV, Syphilis, Hep A/B/C, Herpes (5,14 and 25 weeks later) and gonorrhoea/chlamydia with everything negative. this pain has peen present for almost 6 months now.
