507241 tn?1225495385 I have been to a myriad of drs. with DX of Fibromyalgia,chronic fatigue,depression,and there is nothing wrong with you!

Avatar n tn I've had fibromyalgia and polymyalgia rheumatica since 1999. To make a long story short, my doctor couldn't tell whether or not it was the fibro or poly that was causing the pain, so after getting blood work done, it was a clear decision to the doc I was in the middle of a storming polymyalgia rheumatica. My sed rate was 30, the other test that is done for inflammation was 60.
Avatar n tn (severe aching in the proximal muscles of the shoulder and hips ).My TSH is 0.01 ANA panel is 1.7 positive and speckeled. They are doing a Sed rate now. I had severe shakiness, full blown dilated left pupil, and tender coratids and temperal artery. I am under Dr. care and they are investigating. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn I have numerous symptoms and I was wondering if they all stem from being diagnosed 13 years ago with Fibromyalgia? One of my chief complaints is I get what I could describe as electrical shocks that start in my head and kind-of shoot through my body. They are very painful and seem to disappear with continued use of Lexapro (my dr. prescribed this for my fibro). However, I have other problems as well. I have severe allergies, in which my dr. has prescribed Zyrtec and Flonase.
659608 tn?1318292966 What is your recomendation and feelings on using Medicinal Marijuana for Fibromyalgia symptoms? There are so many conflicting articles, it's hard to know the real truth, so a doctor's view point wuld be very helpful.
Avatar f tn Do you experience panic attacks? Certainly fibromyalgia can cause the other symptoms you mention. It sounds like all of the other testing you've had doesn't bring any more serious forms of illness, so that's a good thing. I feel that you would do well speaking with a rheumatologist, as they have more knowledge of fibro and it's diagnosis. God bless and keep you.
Avatar n tn Hi there, Nexium can cause musculoskeletal side effects like arthralgia, aggravation of arthritis, arthropathy, cramps, fibromyalgia syndrome, hernia, hypertonia, polymyalgia rheumatica, and back pain. It should be avoided in people with osteopenia or decreased bone density. These effects are usually seen after a prolonged use of this drug. It is best to contact a healthcare professional for more queries. Best wishes and regards!
Avatar f tn Other important causes could be polymyositis(a type of inflammatory myopathy or muscle inflammation) or fibromyalgia(Fibromyalgia (FM) is a disorder classified by the presence of chronic widespread pain and tactile allodynia i.e heightened and painful response to gentle touch) In your case it can be due to fibromyalgia. Antidepressant drugs have been used frequently to treat fibromyalgia. Amitriptyline and Fluoxetine have been used to treat fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn Important ones that need to be ruled out are fibromyalgia ,chronic fatigue syndrome,polymyositis, polymyalgia rheumatica,muscular dystrophy,diabetes,osteoarthritis,deranged potassium levels and CVA. Complete physical examination along with investigations like EKG,electrocardiography,ESR blood, platelet count Rheumatoid factor, creatine kinase,electromyography and muscle biopsy may be needed to make a diagnosis.Pls consult a physician for that.

Avatar n tn Well, joint pains with rash can be seen in SLE (lupus), psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, polymayalgia rheumatica and chronic fatigue syndrome. Gout, though typically affects the great toe, can cause multiple joint pain with rash. Hashimotos Thyroiditis is another possibility. Hayfever and rheumatoid arthritis too should also be ruled out. Crohn’s disease is another possibility. Of these you have been diagnosed with RA, but other conditions should be ruled out. Take care!
Avatar n tn There are many conditions that can cause these symptoms such as SLE, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, polymayalgia rheumatica and chronic fatigue syndrome, gout though typically affects the great toe, can cause multiple joint pain with rash, Hashimotos Thyroiditis, hayfever and rheumatoid arthritis. Another possibility is reactive arthritis, which could have occurred in reaction to something—in this case rash. In this case you need to rule out the cause for the hives or urticaria.

Avatar n tn Polymyalgia rheumatica is an inflammatory disorder while fibromyalgia is not. The steriods should have given great relief. Did you discontinue them on your doctors advice or on your own? If you discontinued the treatment to early your symptoms may reappear. Also, the steroids may be something that you need to stay on in order to control your illness. This could be determined by your physician. Could you have fibro too?
