Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia pain joints

fibromyalgia

Avatar f tn For the last few years, I've had pain in all my joints.. Not unbearable pain, just a small aching pain. Over the years it has gotten worse, all my joints crack, I'm not forcing them to crack, they just do.. If I move a certain way, they crack. My toes, ankles, knees, hips (my hips are the most painful when they crack), lower back, upper back, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers.... I do crack my knuckles out of habit, but they don't bother me as much as my other joints.
Avatar f tn Unlike arthritis, the incapacitating pain is not in the joints but in the muscles and ligaments. Fibromyalgia is known for presentation of pain at specific sites known as tender points or tender spots. The pain is commonly located in the neck, shoulders, back, and hip and the tender points are located in the same regions. The tenderness is worse in the mornings and has been described as flu-.like, burning, throbbing, aching, or stabbing.
Avatar f tn A person must have history of widespread pain lasting since 3 months and pain and tenderness in at least 11 of 18 areas to confirm the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Treatment of fibromyalgia aims at pain reduction and control of other associated symptoms. Physical therapy, massage, relaxation techniques and exercise may be tried. Sometimes your doctor may prescribe an antidepressant or muscle relaxant if there is no relief from pain and associated depression. Hope you find this information useful.
Avatar f tn Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that causes pain and stiffness throughout the tissues that support and move the bones and joints. Pain and localized tender points occur in the muscles, particularly those that support the neck, spine, shoulders and hips. The disorder includes widespread pain, fatigue and sleep disturbances.

1399618 tn?1286469531 My husband has been complaining of pain in his joints for some time. It was thought to have been caused by having Back Surgery. However, he cant' sleep at night, its up and down constantly. Even sleep walking or sitting up sleeping. When walking you can see the pain on his face. If he doesn't have something to lean on ie. shopping cart etc. forget walking. The pain is excruciating.
Monster ### FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS Pain — The primary symptom of fibromyalgia is widespread (diffuse), chronic, and persistent pain. The pain may be described as a deep muscular aching, soreness, stiffness, burning, or throbbing. Patients may also feel numbness, tingling, or unusual “crawling” sensations in the arms and legs.

358486 tn?1294779988 I had my gallbladder removed in Feb of 2006 but the pain was still there. I finally got sober in April of 2006 but the muscle pain stayed with me! The sleep problems have stayed with me as well. I have unspecific muscle pain all over my body at this point. Some days it is in the upper region, some days it is my lower limbs only, some days its BOTH. I feel like I am just about to come down with the flu about 80% of the time. Tired, achy, sore, fatigued.
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 f tn Sometimes repetitive injuries or strain can also produce these symptoms. Inflammation of the muscles, joints and surrounding soft tissues like bursa can also cause pain. They are diagnosed by a physical examination. Sometimes blood tests, x rays, bone scan, CT and nerve conduction studies can help clinch the diagnosis. 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.
Avatar f tn I had so much pain that I could hardly crawl in the door yesterday. The pain was everywhere upper back, legs, hips, upper arms and neck. It seems like this condition happens when I have not much pain and try to get everything I need to do in a couple days and then the next day I cannot move. On a good day if I sit for more than 20-30 minutes I stiffen up and takes a while to move again at all. My knees joints are very painful.
Avatar n tn I have suffered from fibromyalgia for years. I have been taking vitiman B6/B-12 shots, and they help me with the pain of the disease. I"ve been trying to find out where to buy the B-6, I already have the B-12. Can anyone let me know if there is somewhere to buy B-6. Also, Rodex Forte is good for the off days, so I need to buy that also.
710094 tn?1229312306 I think my worst symptom is the deep pain in my muscles and joints. I have alot of UTI's, vaginitis, yeast infections, headaches and fatigue. I tried to get disability and was denied. 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.
Avatar m tn dear doctor, I am suffering from joints pain since a pretty long time.done tests-aso titre,ra,uric acid,crp,asot,anf etc.,everything is ok but pain is there.would you please advice me so that i may get rid of this pain.
358486 tn?1294779988 It's a fibro drug. Fibromyalgia usually is debilitating fatigue and pain either in muscles and/or joints. I think it can also be pain in tissues, though not sure if that is official. It also can have other symptoms. Problem with fibro, is that a lot of the symptoms overlap with other autoimmune diseases so doctors have to be sure to rule out other diseases before diagnosis fibromyalgia. My aunt thought for years she had fibromyalgia.
587071 tn?1218545987 Every thing came out okay but I still have the lumps.My family doctor thinks fibromyalgia is all in my head and its not a real disease.How ever the rumatodaligist thought the other way.Since I had know swelling of my joints they ruled out arthrities. Even though I dont think I have fibromyalgia it could be that I do.I just have a feeling that there is more going on with me.Some days I'm so scared because my body hurts so bad and I cant do any thing for it.
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..
1532491 tn?1294598544 And some days ill get the worst pain in all of those joints. Do you think it could be something bad? Please help. P.s. I dont purposely crack them. I just move and they crack. And the hip cracking, is that weird? Ive never heard of it before (i also have a problem with cracking my fingers and neck a lot and those hurt sometimes too.) P.P.S whenever i move some of my joints crack. i think it could be serious please help.

1040744 tn?1253051726 Apart from fibromyalgia multiple joint pain is seen in hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hasimotos thyroiditis, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, SLE, electrolyte disturbance particularly those involving calcium and magnesium, parathyroid gland problems, chondrocalcinosis and chronic fatigue syndrome.
1170694 tn?1285101109 I have it really bad and have had it for years. It's just something you learn to live with I guess. Heat helps the pain when the joints are swollen. You may want to try placing a heating pack on your ankles or your hips when they get crackly and painful.
Avatar f tn hi I have had several autoimmune like symptoms and when they occur I get itchy. I too get pain but usually in muscles (rather than joints) but have a itchy feeling right before a bad occurance. Before I get nodosum erythema I itch real bad in the exact same spot as where it occurs. So, I have come to think that the itching is a autimmune response but from what I have read is common to several autoimmune diseases ( for example lupus and allergies).
Avatar f tn It gets so bad that I cannot climb stairs by the end of the night without difficulty. I have difficulty writing due to the hand and wrist pain. I am stiff and sore in the joints in the mornings, it gets better during the day and then the pain is severe in the evenings. I have had blood tests for Lupus, Rhematoid arthritis, lymes and parvo and they have been all negative. I also have chronic neck, back and hip pain. This has been going on for a long time now, over a year.

Avatar f tn Here in the states fibromyalgia is treated with lyrica, cymbalta and a few other drugs that help with pain and help sleeping. In addition many of us take other pain meds. The care is supposed to be just for the person. What may work for me may not work for you. I think you need to see a rheumy dr. He treats people with pain in the joints and such. I also have a spine condition I've had since birth . I was told I would always have pain in my lower back. I went to a chriopractor.
Avatar f tn also I ache in the rest of my joints and have a radiating pain in the small of my back. at 30 yrs old I get stuck in postitions I've been in a while, squating for any period of time burns real bad and exercize also.
Avatar m tn Generally treatment is supportive. Another possibility is fibromyalgia. Apart from fibromyalgia multiple joint pain is seen in hypothyroidism, low Vitamin D levels, Low Vit B12 levels, anemia, Hashimotos 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.
358486 tn?1294779988 Considering that this is the Pain Management Forum, I dont find that Brandy F should be limited to the Fibro forum. Pain is pain.
Avatar n tn She told me that the actual hip bursitis could be causing a massive flare-up of the fibromyalgia and the pain from that alone could be affecting/inflaming all types of joints. I told her since the bursitis had worsened since about January-February, I had become totally fatigued, exhausted, and completely depressed at times to the point where I would see a picture of my 9 and 1/2 year old son when he was a baby and bawl and bawl- completely unlike me.
