Avatar f tn HELP for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia by Dr. Allison Bested. (NUMBER ONE DOC IN CANADA) Get to the library and read CURRENT books on FMS and Chronic Fatigue Get tested for Lyme's Disease if you life in an area or get into areas infested with tics. REALLY!! Eat healthier choices and be gentle with yourself. Getting into a hot epsom bath will help as well as getting into an Arthritis Pool Program or a hot tub to ease achiness. Gentle hugs.
6037685 tn?1378563217 that are rare not this condition.... We do have a list of Drs In Canada for u to use to research who may be in ur area...and where u may have to travel to as many of us do not have a Chiari specialist nearby. And we do have Canadian members here. Many Drs do make us feel like we make up symptoms and we r just plain crazy...but there are too many of us with the same symptoms...so know u r not alone and u r not a hypochondriac....
Avatar f tn Hi Kate. I'm not sure in NZ but here in Canada to see a "Rheumie" as we call them sometimes, it is recommended you get a referral through your family doctor. There are always exceptions where people have gone directly, but the rheumie must have access to their medical file. A couple things you may want to try on your own, to rule out magnesium deficiency which is a good possibility as Red Star mentioned and gluten intolerance. 1. Do daily Transdermal Magnesium Oil treatments.
Avatar m tn • Seem to get sick from antibiotics I have been tested for a lot of things and am running out of things it could be. I spent some time at the mayo clinic seeing various specialists and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia basically because they just couldn’t find anything wrong with me so I struggle with accepting the diagnosis. All tests and bloodwork seem to come back normal except a moderately elevated anti-histone and slightly elevated liver enzymes.
Avatar f tn I have looked all over for this, my doctor says not available in canada, only suboxone, looking at leaflet the side effects are crazy yet subutex, nothing! I have a problem with naloxone, need straight SUBUTEX! I can't find proper details about this, anyone help, BTW I AM NOT AN ADDICT! I have never abused heroin or injected anything, etc........ If you look at leaflet, a page and a half of "side effects for suboxone where, only i small paragraph for subtex!
Avatar n tn Most docters say it all the same, but it is NOT. In fact docters in Canada and Britian are doing alot of research into this diease and know more than most american docs. The web sits that might help you most is www.nightingale.ca . a docter Byron Hyde is very knowlegable in this diease. Also another helpful site is //uk.geocities.com/me_not_cfs. I have had every symptom in the book. And docters where always saying it was in my head. But why would i want to be bedbound at 26years old.
3942401 tn?1374351949 I may have forgotten some (as I tend to do) The only pain that I experience is behind my eyes which makes me question the neurologist's suggestion of fibromyalgia. From what I know about fibromyalgia, pain is the main symptom. I'm wondering if it's likely that I could have fibromyalgia if I don't have pain?
Avatar n tn Over a year ago was in a car accident and my muscles and joints hurt so bad most of the time its hard to have a normal day. Its not arthritis or lupus and Dr's are now saying fibromyalgia..I also have extreme burning in my joints and neck is this also a symptom of fibromyalgia?
Avatar f tn These scandals were reported by the Washington Post and other respected news sources around the country. CDC officials diverted research funds away from CFS research and misled Congress about the matter, according to the Inspector-General's report. The CDC, in my opinion, has wasted millions of dollars allocated for CFS research. Their latest research was focusing on psychological problems in CFS patients ! We thought this issue was already tackled, but apparently not.
181575 tn?1250202386 I am reposting articles / summaries on the treatment management of chronic HepB. "cajim" located these articles which are quite informative. I thought about putting them on a seaprate Health Page but didn't think it was appropriate since we didn't write them. Let's make this a sort of "Unofficial Research Thread" or "URT" for this type of information. Let's keep this URT free of comments.
136956 tn?1425609872 I realized the only way to change peoples responses was to educate them. I've been keeping up on the latest research on CFS and there is enough research and also lab tests that can prove you have CFS; same with fibromyalgia. I guess this is why the CDC finally came out and said, "yes, CFS is real". For the latest CFS/FIBRO related research, google "Co-Cure" and check out their website. Also, there is now a lab that can make the CFS or FIBRO diagnosis !
Avatar f tn com site (I live in Ottawa, Ont, Canada) and research everything you could find on fibromyalgia. The Internet has a wealth of information available for you to peruse. Here is what I did: I made an appt. with an Environmental specialist and a Naturopath. Between both of them I have come a long way. They checked my Thyroid Level, hormone levels, iron, adrenal function just to rule out any other problems. Once armed with this information I started on supplements to build up my immune system.
1741471 tn?1407162630 That is why I was not surprised when in the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Vancouver, Canada one of the main lines of research is concentrating on how we age and move. Changes in gait, loss of balance, clumsy coordination are all symptoms that we tend to associate with old age until now when researchers in Alzheimer are seeing how this extremely important changes can lead to early diagnosis and effective treatment.
5265383 tn?1483811956 There are various private cancer clinics in Canada and probably elsewhere prescribing it. Although it's an off-label use, it's not the first medication being used for pain that's off-label (Cymbalta, gaba, Lyrica etc.). Anyway, just wanted to do an update.
237053 tn?1258832026 To my knowledge there is no definitive test for fibro. It is a diagnosis of exclusion when other testing has been normal.

Avatar f tn Thanks for the response I wil ask my PMP next time I see him if these meds are available in Canada yet. Does anyone know what has been safe to use during pregnancy? We have been trying to conceive our second and are afraid that this might make symptoms worse. Does anyone know?
Avatar f tn Some health professionals recommend that people who don't eat a diet rich in omega-3s take 500 milligrams a day in supplements. Research performed in Canada suggests that the routine practice of qigong, a form of meditative movement, can help lessen the pain of fibromyalgia and make a significant difference in the impact the disorder has on patients' lives.
1300043 tn?1272816419 In fact the first time I saw a rheumatologist I was diagnosed with probable Ankylosing Spondylitis, then a few years later undiagnosised, then in 2007 the rheumatolgist insisted on testing me again for AS but then said in his report I didn't have it and that the pain I was experiencing was the type found in Fibromyalgia. That happened in the UK. Back in Canada my local GP refused to recognise that I had the condition. I asked for a referral, he said sure, but didn't.
483733 tn?1326802046 This also applies to cases of tinnitus and fibromyalgia. During a lecture, I said, 'If you are using ASPARTAME (Nutra Sweet, Equal, Spoonful, etc) and you suffer from fibromyalgia symptoms, spasms, shooting, pains, numbness in your legs, Cramps, Vertigo, Dizziness, Headaches, Tinnitus, Joint pain, Unexplainable depression, anxiety attacks, slurred speech, blurred vision, or memory loss you probably have ASPARTAME poisoning!
Avatar n tn I have done research on medications and found that most of the ones that they have given are Dangerous in general. They seem to cause more medical problems for me. Its from all the side effects. I still deal with racing thoughts which I called Multi-tasking for years.
Avatar m tn Group A is the Blue Book Listings of conditions, that will automatically qualify an individual for SSID,in which Fibromyalgia in not listed. Social Security has granted disability for fibromyalgia, but due to the nature of the disease, it is difficult to get benefits for it. Group B Social Security considers aspects of your condition medically equivalent to the criteria in the listing or a related listing. This is called "equaling a disability listing".
Avatar m tn Please take time to read this and other related posts, as in most cases, once you get to the bottom of this condition, having peeled all the layers, the remaining core is treatable successfully, provided the immune system is re-balanced and strong. So please research-research-research. Seek the truth. Myself and other members here, have gained valuable knowledge through our own experiences. Feel free to ask any questions at any time. You all deserve better health and better lives.
340668 tn?1274743396 Fombonne and colleagues have collected data on the prevalence of ASDs in children in Montreal from 1987 through 1998. Thimerosal was removed from vaccines in Canada by 1996. Fombonne et al. found that there was a statistically significant increase in the prevalence of ASDs for children who received thimerosal-free versions of the recommended childhood vaccines.

Avatar f tn All these problems have been chalked up to having diabetic neuropathy, carpel tunnel (which i just had surgery for), fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue. They've also suspected Lupus, M.S., and a host of others. My family doctor finally got me an appointment with a neurologist this week, who told me that some, but not all, these symptoms that i'm experiencing is caused directly by the Chiari.
