Fibromyalgia research future

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia research future


Avatar f tn htm One thing I can tell you about high blood pressure and fibromyalgia is that some fibromyalgia medications can actually cause high blood pressure in fibromyalgia patients ! You might want to consider posting your symptoms in MedHelp's fibro/CFS forum (I am one of the CL's in there) and we can make sure that other possible conditions have been ruled out (Chari Malformation, lyme, etc.). We also have a wealth of information about fibromyalgia in our Health Pages.
Avatar f tn Since we have conditions that are relatively new and often misunderstood in the medical field, there are many members here who do their research and share that information with the other members.
Avatar f tn Iam a mother with 2 young children and I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 4 years ago. Since then I have been suffering with extreme pain that never lets up. I am curious if anyone else has ideas on which medicines work better for pain. I also suffer from depression and anxiety issues. I also have difficulty sleeping, I feel so alone, because neither my family or friends understand my problems. They think I do not really have medical problems. I appreciate if anyone replies!
587071 tn?1218545987 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.
1647691 tn?1363727302 ) I wanna continue to follow so I can hear about all of your BFPs! Excited today, the intended parents are coming in town tomorrow to see their first sonogram. We're all (I'm bringing my kiddos along) gonna have lunch together and then head over to the fertility clinic. I can't wait for them to hear the heartbeats :) I've already told my son he's on camera patrol. ha. Hope all of you are doing well, I think about you daily.
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??
10059661 tn?1407568770 he explained. Dr. Häuser presented an overview of research on fibromyalgia treatment here at the European League Against Rheumatism Congress 2014.
4942618 tn?1361335384 Here is one of a number of articles on the web regarding his research. I will be starting his protocol in the near future. It doesn't cure it, of course, but provides relief. http://simmaronresearch.
Avatar n tn ) The hospital referred me to a rhematologist who sd he had seen a few cases like mine every yr and it was a type of arthritis caused by the hepatitis and it may flare up again in the future. He had prescribed as many aspirin as I could tolerate. I think I was taking 10 - 12 over the course of the day to enable me to function.
1852058 tn?1320162300 I have spent countless hours researching my disease, searching for safe treatments that are available. I think that if you do the research, you will find some answers that may be a benefit to you. How are you able to hide your condition and what do you tell family members & friends. Don't be ashamed of yourself because you have this condition. It's not your fault you are sick. You may be supported by your family, but you'll never know if you don't try. & about the scooter.
988168 tn?1297405046 I'm 21 years old and have been diagnosed by Fibromyalgia 3 years ago. I took a mild anti-depressant treatment (Tryptizol) for one year and it improved my sleeping efficiency (but not the muscle spasms/ pain), later i took Lyrica for one month, but i got nerve pulsations and tremors all over my body as a side-effect so i quit.
Avatar m tn Study proves fibromyalgia is the real deal Fibromyalgia sufferers have gotten a raw deal for years. Many doctors think the disease is all in their head because there's no lab test that can confirm the source of their symptoms. And with symptoms as elusive as chronic fatigue, muscle pain, and persistent doubt, it's not hard to figure out why these docs are so stumped. Past research has implied that depression was actually the true source of the fatigue and pain of fibromyalgia.
773755 tn?1328123377 allow the rest of the well public to understand a bit more and then perceive sufferers more realistically and helpfully. all of the above then eventually contributing to a future of better understanding and relief of isolation. just to let you know what i'm thinking. i'm in the preliminary stage of getting some documents written on these matters, to present to support groups and medical bodies, to initiate change and improvement.
1047234 tn?1253547296 Please do your research on these problems, so we can help ourselves and our families, and future family members.
Avatar n tn Whether the timing is now or the future (perhaps not too distant future), I think you are headed for a mitral valve repair or possibly replacement. They will probably try a repair first, if it is not feasable, they will replace the valve. I hope this helps.
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.
Avatar f tn Thanks i will do the research. However, i am really cut up, and feel that there is no hope for the future. This has already ruined my life now for so long. I've been to college three time but had to quit from the pain of trying to concentrate, i can't learn to drive, i can't hold down a job...hell i can't even stare at my light bulb without getting frustrated from the visual problems i experience!!
Avatar f tn I was absolutely terrified that I might have ms, but my doctor thinks that that is unlikely. Could this be Fibromyalgia? He's currently running blood tests, but can't find any inflammation- however he says that inflammation may take awhile to show up. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what this might be? I'm really frightened and would be grateful for any help! Thank you!
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a little over a year and a half ago. In January of last year, my PCP also decided it was necessary to test me for Lyme Disease. After the test results came in, it was confirmed that I had Lymes Disease. They still believe though that I have Fibromyalgia, and that the Lyme Disease may have set off a chain reaction of diseases and conditions.
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 n tn In 2007 I was finally diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, hashimoto's, IBS, and dormant ebstein-barr and HHV-6. I still struggle with symptoms, random infections, and overall have a difficult time leading a normal life. I have recently read that the standard tests for Lymes are often not sensitive enough to discover the disease, and wonder if I am not really suffering from chronic Lyme.
975514 tn?1325001538 section_id=27670#sec_27670 I urge you to introduce yourself below and tell us a little about what brought you to the Fibromyalgia/CFS Forum. Again, welcome to MedHelp and the Fibromyalgia/CFS forum!
Avatar m tn stress, anxiety, fibromyalgia, phycological trauma Rationale: after years of research I concluded that the causes described earlier may trigger two main types of conditions: depression OR chronic random pain.
Avatar f tn Elizabeth Whittemore's daughter has Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and that was the inspiration for Mrs. Whittemore to start this national research institute.
5265383 tn?1483811956 I hope to try to move back to night time dosing in the future. I remain undiagnosed, so therefore have no conventional treatment for ms or whatever mimic this is. It is good to feel like I am doing "something" and am relieved to be rid of the neuropathic pain which was disabling. I was very sceptical that LDN would do anything -- it doesn't work for everyone (in particular if they don't tough it out in finding the right dose).
Avatar m tn It has approved morphine for reiters syndrome. This makes NO sense to me at all. my research has shown me that fibromyalgia pain is much worse that reiters syndrome. Has anyone come across this situation?,any advice is really appreciated.
Avatar n tn I take enough because of fibromyalgia. Hopefully I can get some infomation on diet to help with estrogen level. Thank you, Janet This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/261416'>tamoxifin and tachycardia</a>.
Avatar f tn Your work has brought clarity and answers to many who suffer and will enhance future outcomes for both research and treatment methods. There are those who feel that Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue are two separate and distinct illnesses. I believe that they are one in the same, yet manifest themselves differently depending upon the individuals genetics and immune system.
Avatar f tn MedHelp just added "Health Pages" for our board ! You can find the Health Pages to your right under "discussions". The Health Pages are a terrific resource for those of us who want to post treatments, research, news & articles and other helpful information on fibromyalgia and CFS/ME. I know I often repeat myself on the board... so I will probably be posting info on the Health Pages soon.
