Avatar m tn I have had a chronic condition for many years now that was initially diagnosed as CFS, but is now called fibromyalgia. I have muscle pain and constant skin burning/itching, joint pain, etc. Sometimes when I strain a joint hard while attempting to exercise, I develop a painful, itchy cyst just under the skin near the joint. These cysts never seem to go away. Is this common with FM or not? Or have I been misdiagnosed?

1336585 tn?1275709112 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.
3202069 tn?1345404482 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 go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. 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.
769745 tn?1345746412 In particular, fibromyalgia sufferers are apt to feel neck pain, shoulder pain, lower back pack and pain in the waist, ribs, buttocks, and knees. A common example of one such symptom is pungent or strong-smelling urine. The patient may feel embarrassed to even bring up the topic with her physician. Genitourinary symptoms involve the private parts and it is never easy to discuss these details, even with medical professionals.

Avatar f tn I suffer from fibromyalgia and chronic back pain so exercise is limited. I just wanted to know if there are any exercise i can do to lose weight. I do stretches every morning to aid with coping with my illnesses. Thankyou.
Avatar m tn The goal of treatment in this condition is to improve sleep and pain tolerance. Medicines should always be used along with exercise and behavior therapy. Medications like Duloxetione, pregabalin and Milnacipram have been approved for treating fibromyalgia.Duloxetine ,Lyrica, and milnacipran are medications that are approved specifically for treating fibromyalgia.Percoset is a narcotic analgesic which is used to treat moderate to moderately severe pain.

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 I have been in denial for 14 years. I did not believe that my constant pain and fatigue was caused by fibromyalgia. Doctors in my area were not supportive and I think that is what triggered my disbelief. They are still very vague about their knowledge of this complex syndrome. I am glad to finally find a forum to discuss and learn more about this strange visitor who refuses to leave my body.

Avatar f tn I suffered with muscle pain for a few years and thought it was part of the RA but now I realize that I have FM. After going to my pcp a few times with pain not explained by RA he had me to try Savella. I skeptically filled the rx. Within a week I noticed that my muscle pain was noticeably improved. It flares at times but it has helped a lot.

4861077 tn?1360156139 I have now seen the rheumatologist and have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia can any advise me as to what help I can get as some days these pains can be life limiting am finding it hard to even peel potatoes need advice thanks
Avatar n tn You could see a rheumatologist who specialize with fibromyalgia, but make sure that the rheumatologist is reputable, that is, that the doctor is with a major University or a major medical facility. There is still a lot of ignorance among some doctors about fibromyalgia. The medications to treat fibromyalgia are very different from the usual pain pills.
Avatar f tn It helped me with a lot of the muscle spams and pain. But since I am also type2 diabetic, I had to quit taking it as I gained weight on it. I've read that is the main side effect. Neurontin also is good for muscle pain. Good luck, and stay warm this winter. The cold seems to worsen the symptoms.
Avatar n tn I have really bad muscle and joint pain. I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I have started having elevated CPK levels and the doctor is talking about doing a muscle biopsy. This has been going on for about 15 years and it is getting worse. I have developed a bad sense of smell it is like a strong sweet/sour smell like a bad doughnut and bad headaches and stiffness in my neck.
