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.
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.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 10 years ago. About one year ago, after all of my cancer treatments were finished; I began to experience the muscle pain and chronic fatigue again in a big way. I have not been able to shake it. I have changed my diet. No soft drinks, no artificial sweeteners, and, a vitamin/anti-oxidant juice every day. I also excersize 3 to 5 days a week. Nothing is helping!
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.

554442 tn?1221235225 Fibro does not cause joint pain or swelling. The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/fibromyalgia/AR00056 Question: Why Don't NSAIDs Work for Fibromyalgia Pain? Why don't pain relievers like Motrin, Advil and Aleve work against the pain of fibromyalgia? Answer: It's a common misconception that fibromyalgia is an inflammatory or rheumatological condition, but it is not.
771990 tn?1341779376 Today was more about the Fibromyalgia pain in my upper back and spasms down my arm. This is the most aggravating pain. Its almost as if it burns. On top of all of that all day is a cold I am trying to come down with and I always worry because of the COPD I have and the asthma. Been taking that strong prescription cough medicine that helps with rest but with everything elese I am taking for pain I hope the mix is ok.
742330 tn?1350364850 I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia today...wicked pissah!
Avatar f tn the migraine marathon seems to be slowing somewhat...so far today I've only had one and it's almost 5pm. That's an improvement. But the body/fibromyalgia pain is bad. My hips and legs and arms and hands and shoulder are killing. It's constant and med resistant. It is also frustrating because I don't really one hundred percent know if the pain is all from fibromyalgia or if possibly something else like the ms I have been examining. I suppose I could have both.
587071 tn?1218542387 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 n tn Wondering if my muscle tightness and pain is a symptom of fibromyalgia. My lower back hurt this morning and night, my back, neck, and shoulders are still all balled up.
Girl I have dislypedemia, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, chronic pain in my shoulders, knees and back, and other conditions.
Avatar f tn I constantly have pain. The pain is mainly in my upper back, shoulders and neck, but the pain is also common every where else. I have had pain like this for about 6 years. I'm in my late 20s and I have so much pain. I heard about fibromyalgia and was wondering how a doctor could diagnose this, is their any blood work or diagnostic tests done?
2126606 tn?1346345124 This Saturday, May 12, is National Fibromyalgia Awareness Day, so it’s a perfect time to talk about fibromyalgia as it relates to opiate use. 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.
Avatar f tn Ive been having pain issues in the right hip going on 3 years now.. As time passed I developed other problems..I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia yet my doctor could never pinpoint the hip pain...as time goes on my pain gets worse and worse..I can barely work anymore..even have trouble walking. That's when I did my own research and learned about hip bursitis ...i was in so much pain at work... The following morning I had too call my doctor and ask too be withdrawed from working...
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.

1550149 tn?1340000730 Chronic Sleep Disturbance Sleep disturbances are common in fibromyalgia. Pain is certainly a factor. In addition, fibromyalgia patients have more sleep disturbances than others. Specifically, both adult and young patients have a higher than average incidence of a sleep disorder called periodic limb movement disorder (PLMD), (formerly known as nocturnal myoclonus).

1770280 tn?1314584960 s and was given amitriptyline for it a few years later. I went on a vitamin and supplement regimen which kept the pain to a tolerable level for four or five years. Then I started with Elavil/amitrip for about five years before that wasn't working too well and I was placed on Effexor XR. NOT a good drug.
358486 tn?1294776388 my ribs underneath mt breast! so now i am experiencing pain in all 18 trigger points of fibromyalgia!! i am so tired of being in so much pain everday,all th time!!! going back to neurosugeon & pain specialist next THUR 20th ,going to try to get refferal to rheumatologist then!!
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.
136838 tn?1230730079 Just a quick note to say Happy New Years Eve! I have decided to use this time and space to keep a health diary so to speak. I suffer from Fibromyalgia, No thyroid gland, I have very painful feet inspite of spending loads of money on orthodics. Yet x-rays show bone spurs on both ankles not much can be done for it as I am not able to take many forms of pain relief due to a fundiplication surgery I had about 8 yrs ago.
