528396 tn?1217529613 I can go down the check list for Graves disease and have every symptom the same is so with the hyperthroidism quiz. I am not on any meds for my thyroid, just antidepressants, pain meds and muscle relaxers. I'm in constant pain, my muscles ache, my joints ache. This has been going on for too long, I need help and a doctor who is really interested in finding out what is wrong with me.
Avatar n tn Your family may have already done this but, I would suggest getting a referral to another neurosurgeon... keep looking as there are so many cases of missed fractures. Also carefully quiz him as to possible cause that he may have missed... any chance of a fall, skateboard, even wrestling with friends.
Avatar n tn I took the quiz for CIFD and don't have that or just Chronic fatigue, nor do I seem to have fibromyalgia. I will definitely have my doctor check on my adrenal gland. Thanks to both.
Avatar f tn Recently, studies have revealed that some people suffering with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and/or Fibromyalgia also have Neurally Mediated Hypotension. However, people with CFS or FMS are not the only people to suffer with Neurally Mediated Hypotension. Hope I was a little helpful or comforting.
Avatar n tn the last couple of days I have started with twitching all over my body mostly in my feet and legs and a vibrating feeling in my legs Im freaking out about ALS but could this be fibromyalgia? my body is sore from all the twitching and pain twinges! Im a 26yr old female any advice!
Avatar m tn I was given the diagnosis of Ebstein Barr over 20 years ago. I also have Fibromyalgia and Polymyalgia. EBV and Fibromyalgia are very real. I had to learn to live differently. I was always looking at what I could no longer do and felt useless and depressed. A therapist suggested instead to look at what I could do each day, even if it was to get dressed and out of bed at first. It sounded crazy, but slowly I stopped trying to be who I once was and learned to love who I am now.
551343 tn?1506834118 com/p/articles/mi_m0850/is_n3_v8/ai_9369099/ This is a brilliant piece by Jodi Bassett about MS V FIBROMYALGIA. It makes very interesting reading and I would recommend you follow through on some of the links especially about CFS. Here is a website about functional or dissociative neurological symptoms. Many of us are diagnosed with this: http://www.neurosymptoms.
Avatar f tn Okay pop quiz: What is the cause of 50 - 60% of migranes? It's an essential mineral that starts with M and studies show anywhere from 68% to 80% of Americans are low to deficient. And testing for it may miss a deficiency state. Answer: Magnesium. :) Excerpt from Best Magnesium Citrate: "How to Fix Heart Palpitations or Irregular Heart Beat..." "It has been found that 4 out of 5 people in the US (or 80%) are deficient in magnesium.

Avatar f tn I found out that CFS and fibromyalgia are only symptoms from my doc., meaning its a list of symptoms that has been slapped with a name and not the cause of the problem.
182493 tn?1348056515 i also just wanted to mention in case i didnt tell you, i have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and its not fun, so if you have any questions i might be able to help you in that area, although its a fairly new diagnoses to me also, but have done alot of online research on it...
Avatar m tn I just went through a 16 question lupus screening quiz and answered 25%. She's very light-sensitive (I often joke that she's a vampire because of how senstive to light she is). She had pericarditis when she was very young. Then she has all of these arthritis-like symptoms. Again, with no major fatigue or symptoms typically associated with the flu or other common communicable infections. This is the first time anything like this has happend to her.
1220571 tn?1274844795 Then you can call their offices and say that you need to make an appointment with a good thyroid doctor but would like to ask one of the nurses a few questions first. Then you can quiz them about insurance coverage, cost and time to get an appointment. Also, ask if the doctor is willing to treat a patient for symptoms, by testing and adjusting free T3 and free T4 levels as necessary to relieve symptoms. Also ask if the doctor is willing to prescribe natural, dessicated type thyroid meds.
Avatar n tn I am being treated by a pain specialist for tissue damage @ fibromyalgia. The fibro probably isn't tx related but could be. I am on 30mg of morphine 3X's a day and a fast acting 15mg morphine once a day for break-thru pain. My pain center also has a wonderful pyscologist there who is studying lasting effects from the combo tx. He works closely w/ my pain doctor and they are helping me to manage my pain enough to be able to have a half descent life.
Avatar f tn Your comments were very interesting. You quiz like you are frustrated! I do not take meds because I cannot afford them, much less the insurance. I exist on Social Security. I do have a med policy but of course it has the great donut hole in the middle. I cannot afford the meds to even get to the donut hole, much less get thru it. (LOL) and I do still have a sense of humor about it. Why do I want a diagnosis? Several reasons. To know.
4128244 tn?1350077211 I'm a 45 year old post menopausal woman, and I've been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, etc. Doctors have been testing my TSH for 20 years, and the results are always the same. Low Normal. I'm so sick of those words. In July, I had an MRI for back and neck pain, and a multinodular goiter showed up. This was followed by a nuclear ultrasound and bloodwork.
Avatar n tn I have panic attacks every day about what it could be...I've thought Lyme, fibromyalgia,...and of course a brain tumor... I have seen a neurologist, an allergologist, an ENT, an ophthalmologist, an infectious disease specialist, and of course a one can tell me what is wrong with me. This is what I have: - tingling in limbs - shooting pains all over - macular edema in left eye (retinal swelling, blurry vision.
Avatar f tn I'm confused by her wanting me to stop as it was supposed to be helpping me improve my muscles which feel so weak and super tight like I can't relax them. She also said I can stop the neurontin as it's probably not improving anything and not helpping my feeling constantly fatigued. I asked her if this could be fibromyalgia...a long pause with..."I guess it could be". She asked what the rhumatologist thought. I told her a combo of myopothy and fibro.
Avatar n tn It certainly sounds like you could have CFIDS >> These are some of the symptoms listed on the CFIDS Association of America website... you may want to take their quiz, "Do I Have CFIDS" ?
Avatar m tn Hi, I am in the same situation as you, and about to go cold turkey, as well, after tapering down off of Oxycontin and Oxycodone for the treatment of chronic pain (Interstitial Cystitis, Fibromyalgia, and severe undiagnosed GI issues). I have tapered down to 1/12th of the dose that I was at the height of my illness, and have found the end to be just awful anxiety-wise, as well. I, too, have decided not to prolong the process.
Avatar m tn no matter how much meds he/she needs but are not willing to accept that person with fibromyalgia on Morphine pump taking huge amounts of opiates is not Walter
Avatar f tn I am being forced to cold turkey withdrawal from all meds I was taking for fibromyalgia and I don't know what to do. I was prescribed percocet 5/325 5x daily, ultram 50 4x day, and Valium 2x/day (final dosing). My pain management clinic kept upping my dosage because of tolerance and also because I take care of my adult son with a TBI as well as work a very stressful job full time.
Avatar f tn Yes, I have heard of twelve weeks double-dosing, but not in terms of previous rapid responders. But then again, I haven't had the opportunity to quiz your doctor on the "whys" of his treatment plan as perhaps you will assuming the spirit moves you.
Avatar f tn Anyway, I have not had my spinal fluid checked, but as I told Shane, I am going to quiz my doctor even more since I have done this research. The paralysis issue was the thing that got me stressed! Thanks for responding!
Avatar n tn when they can't find obvious abnormalities on testing. I also got the fibromyalgia diagnosis. True fibromyalgia has specific diagnostic criteria. You must have 11 out of 18 tender points for diagnosis. A lot of doctors just throw this diagnosis at you because they can't find anything else. I was diagnosed by 3 doctors with this. Not one of them checked for the tender points. Anyway, another point to remember...
Avatar n tn Thanks for your link on CFIDS. I have CFIDS and for many years, thought my symptoms were due to severe allergies ! I remember they gave me allergy shots and they made me so ill the following day. My allergist insisted that I continue with the shots, but I refused to. Years later, physicians' told me that I did the right thing. I have since learned that sublingual therapy and homeopathy are the best treatments for allergies (my opinion.. of course).
