fibromyalgia

Avatar n tn I had become so stressed, not sleeping, overworked etc that my body had leeched all the nutrients from my body and within 24 hours the pain had begun to stop. It wont harm you in small doses to try as it is natural and now in 2017 I still take 1 dose before bed every night just to keep the pains away.
Avatar n tn Simple as that may sound, it does cause back pain...most men do not think about this as it's natural to carry it there. Another problem can be caused by walking or standing a lot during the day. Make sure you have a good set of comfortable shoes. I'm sorry that I can't be of more help. My husband suffers with back problems as well and I know it's painful. I hope you can find some relief soon.
1033336 tn?1252509731 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.

Avatar f tn Hi! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. I have horrible pain and my doctors are trying to work with me to find a treatment that doesn't involve heavy pain meds.

3202069 tn?1345408082 I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 yrs maybe longer. It is very hard to deal with. My legs bother me alot. I am on pain meds and eating certain foods make it worse.

I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain.

Avatar m tn My symptoms of chronic fatigue seemed to start with Epstein Barr, now I have the joint/nerve pain. I recently saw a medical acupuncturist for treatment, and this quack doctor discounted everything I told her about the Epstein Barr virus, and told me that this whole condition was in my head, and I needed antidepressants. Although, she did do the acupuncture to boost my adrenal function for energy.
Avatar f tn After years of taking hydrocodone/soma and various other pills for chronic pain, I was finding I was still in pain and I just didn't want continue my life this way. I found Kundalini Yoga a year ago and it gave me the strength to realize I no longer want to put poison in my body and it is a low impact form of yoga that has worked wonders for me. I know the pain can drive you to think you'll just live on pain pills, it did me but those pills will eventually dull everything except your pain.
5586759 tn?1370438872 I've had Fibromyalgia since I was a teenager and I have gone through one pregnancy already, but at the time I hadn't been diagnosed properly for the ailments that I have. It's now round two, I am pregnant again, and I'm wondering about good suggestions to help maintain lower levels of pain.

5682570 tn?1372290919 My daughter who's a holistic health practitioner and aromatherapist uses a few drops of Organic Peppermint Oil over the itchy areas. You may also try Aloe Vera gel, as this works well too. On the scalp though, hmm, I bit too messy. ACV (apple cider vinegar) diluted with water for the scalp may help , but do a test on a small area first, just in case you react. For the tingling and numbness on your nose and perhaps the itchiness as well, check out the following possibilities: 1.
Avatar n tn It claims to help with all the things I have. Insomnia, Fibromyalgia, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, Anxiety. I am on Effexor XR and Lunesta and would like to come off of both of them. Have you heard anything good or bad that you can share with me about 5HTP?
Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia has been studied in terms of lower levels of a brain neurotransmitter called serotonin causing lower pain threshold or an increased sensitivity to pain. The lower pain thresholds may be caused by the reduced effectiveness of the body’s natural endorphin painkillers and the increased presence of a chemical called substance P which amplifies pain signals.

Avatar f tn Progesterone has a calming effect on the body and is good for pain relief. Some people are even using natural progesterone cream for fibromyalgia treatment. I don't now how far along you are in your pregnancy, but maybe the pain will get better. Also maybe there are some natural treatments to look into that would be safe to use while pregnant. How about a massage? There are natural supplements for pain too, but I do not know if they are safe to use during pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia pain is associated with specific widespread pain at so called 12 or 13 tender points. Fibromyalgia is characterized by pain in specific areas of your body when pressure is applied, including the back of your head, upper back and neck, upper chest, elbows, hips and knees. The pain generally persists for months at a time and is often accompanied by stiffness. I would try acumpacture, exercise, hyponotherapy, and homeopathy.

Avatar f tn It's effectiveness for fibromyalgia and neuropathic pain, for significant pain reduction is approximately 33%. One of my associates and good friend of mine was given free samples by her Doctor. She had to discontinue taking it after several weeks, as she experienced excessive weight gain, depression and speech issues. And less nerve pain, but the side effects outweighed-for her- the benefits. So would I advise you not to take it?

Avatar f tn GP has twice diagnosed depression but this kind of pain is not from depressesion. Any depression is because of the pain and not the cause of it. Not been back to my GP as I feel he has already labelled me and will only prescribe another round of anti depressants. Does this sound like fibro anyone ? I think the rib pain is from Chosto but would like to hear from anyone who has anything similar. Also, one last thing, over the last couple of days any kind of exertion and I start to sweat !!
