4186651 tn?1357834557 This is so new to me. Is is part of Chiari symptoms to come and go? I almost feel back to my old self. Just nauseous and very little dizziness from day to day with all the body aches. I'm petrified to have another migraine though which I get frequently!!!
Evillady I have esophageal spasms when i eat or drink at times and the food gets stuck in my throat and wont go down,wont come up. Its really painfull and concerning to me.
1184051 tn?1264438908 /or RA and when I told him my symptoms he said they were all due to fibromyalgia. It really made me mad that he wouldn't take them seriously and didn't even want to treat me for fibro. I'm going to press my family doctor to start a treatment regimen.
Avatar f tn I still have all the pain and its so new to me. Can anyone tell me if this is Fibromyalgia. Does this come on slowly???? or can suddenly occur. PLEASE!
Avatar n tn I have had fibro for many years, and symptoms like this seem to come and go in cycles. If you keep experiencing them, tell your primary dr, and see if he recommends a cardio checkup. Better safe than not. Just because you have fibro, doesn't mean other things can't go wrong.
1033336 tn?1252509731 My mom died and i wanted to get a check up at the time so i decided to seek medical attention from my gynecologyst all he did was tell me that my body pain was all in my head i cannot get screened for cancer yet because of my age and if I go and take the brac gene test and it turns out positive then it will mess me up getting health insurance in the future. I was so mad!
Avatar f tn Today after seeing my neurosurgeon and him telling me he cannot do anything to fix me because nothing is showing up on my scans, I almost broke down and cried because no one seems to know what is wrong with me. I researched Fibromyalgia and discovered a lot of the symptoms I am having. I thought I was to young to have this, I am only 22. I am wondering more and more if this is what I have.
Avatar f tn For my doctor visits before and even now, I write down what I need to ask in advance and prepare a list of any new symptoms and so on (when I think about it) and it helps alot - my appts are much quicker and smoother and I know my dr. appreciates it. Also, Fibromyalgia is new and there are alot in the medical community who think it's a mental disease (which it's not according to the CDC) ask for references for dr's who actually treat the specific diagnosis and start there.

1550149 tn?1340004330 In primary fibromyalgia (also called idiopathic fibromyalgia) the causes are not known, and in secondary fibromyalgia the causes can be identified. Primary fibromyalgia is the more common form. Many experts believe that fibromyalgia is not a disease but rather a chronic pain condition brought on by a constellation of dysfunctional biologic responses to stress. Such individuals are thought to be more susceptible to stress because of traumatic personal histories, genetic factors, or both.
Avatar f tn Can neuropathy come and go with severe attacks of stabbing pain. Been told by a neuro Dr that what made me think I had neuropathy she has never diagnosed me with it and neuropathy cannot come and go. My internal med Dr has had me on Lyrica for a year and it helps allot with the shooting burning stabbing pains at night. But sometimes it gets real bad.
Avatar n tn have you been to a rheumatologist, they usually diagnosis Fibromyalgia and things related to it I would start there.
Avatar n tn I ache so badly it brings tears to my eyes and I can't stand it. I have been reading about the symptoms of fibromyalgia on the web and I do have many of the symptoms just wondering if there is anything I can do differently or to make my symptoms less troublesome. Thank you for responding and not thinking I am crazy.
666834 tn?1338564994 This forum has been very helpful for me, especially when i first got diagnosed with Fibro. I've been managing it pretty well these last few months and i have tried to go without any pain meds. I am usually a very positive person and I have never suffered from overwhelmig sadness but these last 2 weeks i've been having a lot of crying spells, i feel extremely drained and i feel like i have a huge weight on me.
Avatar n tn hearing tested, both came back fine. I do have fibromyalgia and suffer with many of the problems that go along with that. I also feel as though I have things crawling on me, but there is nothing there. My feet fall asleep even when I am walking and I often have a twitching in my right eyelid. I am very tired in the evening and often fall asleep before dinner. I have even been having some trouble with tightness in my chest. I have given you all the information I can think of right now.
Avatar n tn its definantly good to get a baby sitter while you go throough your wd symptoms do you have any family that you can call and tell them you are sick can the kids go to there house for a couple of days allow yourself a few days of pure misery, you have been on them for so long, your body will call out in anger when you stop feeding it oxycs you will make it, set a goal and follow through do you have a docotor that can prescribe comfort meds?
1075109 tn?1281839291 I am really frightened at the lack of knowledge that is out there and I still have to keep my other disorder at bay and come to terms with the fact that I now am really disabled and cannot earn a proper income and have to rely on my ex. This in South Africa is a joke because if he doesn't pay it isn't like we have the resources to go and arrest him to bring him to book. Anyway, too much information. That is my question. And please don't anybody say that I worry too much about labels.
709619 tn?1230165075 Do people with fibromyalgia experience attacks similar to MS that last for a week or so and then subside with more mild symptoms, or is it a chronic condition? And are the painful areas always sensitive to touch? I've been dealing with something that feels neurological in nature and I'm working with my neurologist on eliminating certain conditions. I have thus far eliminated two conditions that resemble the symptoms I've been dealing with i.e., ALS and B12 deficiency.
Avatar f tn I have been dealing with extremely notable symptoms since 4/09. After much blood work, many hospital visits and an abnormal MRI, my neurologist told me I have Fibromyalgia. He then sent me to a rheumatologist who was COMPLETELY against diagnosing someone with Fibromyalgia. He instantly took me off the nuerontin that I had only been on for one month. I then returned to my neuro advising him that my symptoms continued and some were worse.
Avatar f tn The infection rate with Lyme in the tick population is exploding in North America and as the earth's temperature warms this trend is expected to continue. Symptoms may come and go in varying degrees with fluctuation from one symptom to another. There may be a period of what feels like remission only to be followed by another onset of symptoms.
Avatar n tn I just read your post and your symptoms are so much like mine Believe me I know what you're going through. Are you also dizzy and light headed? The range of symptoms just go on and on ... most of them bizarre .. when you share them with anyone they look at you like you're crazy. It's totally overwhelming to doctors because they don't know where to start with a diagnosis. Like you, most of my tests have come back "normal" which makes me feel like a hypochondriac.
10059661 tn?1407568770 So where did these two new diseases come from? The symptoms and signs of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia were described in the literature in the 1930's as one way that low thyroid could be expressed."
Avatar f tn I told dr i couldn't any more injections and that they werent helping. And that the savella wasn't helping either and he wants me to give it another 3wks and come back. i asked him for some more samples since it was going to cost me little over 100 dollars for the month so he gave me a months worths of samples. Im going to call and make a apt with a rheumatologist since i got my ssi denial and we will see where that goes. I guess it couldn't hurt anything.
Avatar n tn It is so frustrating not to have a label or explanation for these symptoms which have severely affected my lifestyle. I go to the pool and joint works exercises as sponsored by the Arthritis Society twice a week and also go to fitness classes three times a week. Althought the exercises help, the symptoms still persist.
1943833 tn?1349280189 I have wondered often over the last few years if I have Fibromyalgia, but have never asked a doctor about it because I don't seem to have the tender points. I'm wondering how many of these symptoms are "common" for fibromyalgia. Or maybe CFS? -occasional severe sensitivity to noise. I can be sitting in a room, with people around me and noises I would normally not mind (kids playing, etc) will "hurt". I don't really have a headache, and it's not an actual pain.
434278 tn?1324709825 I have horrible fatigued in the mornings and sometimes afernoons. I have headaches that come and go all day lasting anywhere from a second to longer. Sometime migranes to where I throw up. I have more symptoms. I do believe I have Sjogren's but why dosen't the Rheumy test me for LUPUS?
Avatar f tn Just wondering who on the board might have diagnoses of both MS and fibromyalgia. What are your most common symptoms of both? And a question for the medical experts here: does having one of the above disorders predispose you to having the other?
Avatar m tn I just can't sit here and do nothing, back in 2006 I did go to my then manager and said that 3 of us had all been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and if we could have a air quality test, she wasn't real thrilled with me asking that, and wanted to know the names of the other 2 people, (which it wasn't my place to give them to her), but they did give me permission to say there were 2 other people with this dx.
216278 tn?1308864682 I tried to explain to my husband that those answers don't help me much because I remember when I went through the issues before being diagosed with fibro. Every doctor I went to said that I was perfectly fine and to go rest or go on vacation or see a therapist...then finally, one very open-minded doctor in Arizona told me that he thought that I had fibro and my life changed on the spot.
