Panda What are the best vitamin supplements for fibromyalgia pain? I've heard of magnesium working very well, is this true and if so how much?
358486 tn?1294779988 this leads to Fibromyalgia, but not in all the cases, of course. It is also noted that those who complain of more pain after the surgery, have more chance of developing fibromyalgia. One more reason thought to be implicated in post surgery fibromyalgia is ..... the neck is hyper-extended while doing the intubation and this constitutes a neck injury! Hope that helps.

He is supoposed to be a Specialist and one of the best about dealing and treating Fibromyalgia. I hope you can understand all of this. Also yes my doctor has checked my vitiamin D level and it was low she put me on medicine. Also she put me on vitamin B shots.
Avatar f tn Does anyone who has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia know of the best medication to take to help relieve the discomfort associated with this disease?
Avatar f tn Diagnosis placed on medical file. Referred to specialist and pain clinic. I had to point it out to her but she accepted that I was right which helps her as well. Not all GP's are knowledgable about Hepc and the fibro connection, why should they...the government doesn't want to acknowledge the wider issue of disability, especially if the medical profession has caused your condition.
728965 tn?1266377245 I was just wondering if anyone has ever tried going to a pain management specialist for fibro? If they even know how to help.

358486 tn?1294779988 In my case, 15 years of constant, non remitting pain, not even for a second, has turned into intractable pain. Yes I would see a pain management specialist if you are in moderate to severe pain due to Fibro. Fibromyalgia is a real disease, not a hypochondriac's disease du jour. Ignorance and lack of compassion are not prerequisites for using the pain management forum in fact the exact opposite is true.
3795221 tn?1348163075 Listen this fibromyalgia stuff is so-o-o-o out there in the world of we know it exists and we know it needs to be treated, but I'm not going to be the one to treat you. They all know a thing or two, but not one pain mgmnt specialist, rheumatologist or even general practitioner will treat long for fear of the DEA. So while your recovery and past prescription history is commendable it won't matter because they are the ones being watched at your expense.
Avatar f tn I need a tracker that covers fibromyalgia symptoms not just pain. Im going to see a specialist and need to keep track of where and when the pain is.
Avatar f tn I have been experiencing several uncomfortable symptoms for about 12 years now and I’m wondering what specialist I should see. Here is a list of my symptoms (may or may not be related to one another): Asymmetrical joint pain (shoulders, knees, ankles, wrists, hips…all sporadic) Irritability Increased anxiety/anxiety attacks Increased sweating/blushing I have had two pregnancies over the past three years and have been breastfeeding for over two years.
Avatar m tn My family doctor can give me this, and can also treat the pain when it flares-up. I was interested in seeing a specialist only because I want unique/specialized treatment for this condition. I'm finding quite often that specialists aren't offering anything different from a family doctor, yet they are charging far more for their visits. And most are arrogant, with an over-bloated ego....And they seem to know less about the body as a whole, than a family doctor.
798548 tn?1237507253 I have been having lower back and hip pain as well as stiffness and pain in buttocks and down back of legs and burning feet. Can that be signs of tethered cord?
Avatar f tn My husband goes to the doctor with me to let him know he helps manage my meds and my doctor still makes my feel like some sort of drug addict. PS-- forget going on vacation and needing to go the ER with a dx of Fibromyalgia. Your lucky if they even give you a tylenol. Also----have tried all the antidepressant-they don't work!! All they do it cause weight gain and give your emotions a flatline.

1839746 tn?1318550406 I am suffering from fibromyalgia for the past 7 years & recently underwent OZONE treatment for both fibromyalgia & disc bulge in L3,L4 & L4,L5. I had to takes injections throughout my back, neck, chest, hands and legs. I felt so light and free for 1 week post-treatment. Now I feel burning pain near my neck, head, hip region and legs. It is worse than before. I ham on complete rest for the past 2 months. Does ozone really work??? what is happening in my case??
975514 tn?1325001538 I think I have been misdiagnosed with Fibromyalgia. And I feel as though I am getting weaker and weaker lately. I need some opinions from the group because my doctor doesn't seem to want to help me. First, I have a strong family history of autoimmune disease including RA, Reactive Arthritis (my father), thyroid and diabetes. I have been diagnosed with DDD, degenerative facet disease, and facet osteoarthritis.
Avatar m tn He was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia several years ago so his doctor has now decided no additional tests are needed and the pain in caused by the Fibromyalgia. In the mean time, my husband is still in severe pain, can't eat, is experiencing extreme fatigue and is becoming more and more frustrated.
Avatar n tn I applaud you for trying to wean off the oxy, but you really should be under the care of a Pain Management specialist. There are drugs that can help greatly with withdrawal symptoms, but you still need to have your pain managed. If narcotics help your pain, no need to feel guilty about taking them as long as you take them as prescribed.
Avatar n tn looking for a doctor in Winchester VA or close that treats pain for lyme disease and fibromyalgia that can come from the lyme disease
Avatar n tn the facial pain could be the nerve inflamed. ouch. the jaw pain i think is from the clench, so is muscular pain and tightness, probably putting pressure on nerves as well. the clench is from a signal in the brain, trying to balance something up that it thinks is misaligned, but is overdoing it.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Over the past few years we’ve seen an increased number of fibromyalgia patients that have started receiving prescriptions for painkillers to address their chronic pain symptoms. As a Registered Addiction Specialist, this is extremely concerning to me especially at a time when we are also seeing prescription painkiller use exploding nationwide. Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal condition that is marked by widespread aching and pain in the muscles and joints.
Avatar f tn As far as your chronic pain, I don't know where your pain is. Are you seeing a pain management specialist or anything? There are a variety of options to help with the pain that don't include pain meds. I myself am going to have nerve burning on my neck done in about 2 hours to see if it will help my headaches. I have been off/on pain meds for almost 6 years, so I understand the fear that even tho the pain meds don't really work, if I am off them, how much pain will I have to endure?
Avatar f tn I have been "sick" for eight years.I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, cognitive disfunction, hotchimoto disease and somitization disorder.

I also have slight tremors in my hands and drop small things.
