Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia symptoms help

fibromyalgia

Avatar m tn Hello! The symptoms of fibromyalgia are aggravated due to poor sleep, high stress, and poor nutrition .There is no single cure for fibromyalgia. Firstly I will advise you to take a good sleep. Take plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet. Drink plenty of water every day. Avoid processed foods like white bread, junk food etc. and have whole grain foods. Exercise daily for 30-40 minutes. It will help in burning your calories and alleviating depressive symptoms if any.
Avatar m tn Hi I am pretty for sure I have Fibromyalgia some of my symptoms include Soar and stiff muscles in my legs and I just have a Flu like feeling all the time and also the pressure points you have. I have those also. Does this sound like Fibromyalgia to you.
Avatar n tn Hi, Symptoms of fibromyalgia are widespread, and vary from person to person. Some sufferers are more affected by widespread pain, while others find that persistent fatigue is the worst symptom. Symptoms in men vary and tend to be quite different when compared to the symptoms suffered by women. Most researches illustrate that men actually experience milder symptoms than women, and also experience less tender points , less fatigue , less morning stiffnes and milder IBS .
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, and I have severe muscle pain and stiffness. I was wondering if anyone could tell me any kind of medicine that might help? Everything I have tried so far didn't help at all......
Avatar f tn I've always had symptoms of fibromyalgia but never real bad but after I got that Sinus Infection my symptoms of FM became Severe. I also have a family history of Fibromyalgia, my Father, Aunt, and first cousin has it. My symptoms are so severe that my doctor had to put me off of school ,and on to homebound, where a teacher comes out to my house and brings me work twice a week.
Monster The descriptions of fibromyalgia symptoms read to me like a newspaper horoscope: the number of symptoms described can apply to just about any ambulatory human being. The typical medications indicated seem to antidepressants and pain relievers. Please give us the Clif's Notes version of fibromyalgia and if diagnosed, what are the treatments.
Avatar f tn For what it's worth, I would encourage you to try posting your question in a couple other forums, too. I would try the Fibromyalgia forum and the undiagnosed symptoms forum. Maybe even the Rare Diseases forum. I think you'll have a better chance of getting your question answered.
Avatar m tn The meds he is on is omeprazol (tried stopping this yesterday as it can cause nausea) and stemetil to help with the nausea. Having read up on fibromyalgia my son does not appear to have many symptoms. He has had pain that has moved around in his chest, gets tired, can find it hard to sleep but again that has improved has cold feet and hands and now is getting dizzy. Some of the the later symptoms can all be caused by medication side effects?
Avatar f tn It may be reassuring to know, however, that fibromyalgia isn't progressive or life-threatening. Treatments and self-care steps can improve fibromyalgia symptoms and your general health.
Avatar n tn Chronic pain, Sleeplessness, Anxiety and Fatigue may be symptoms of Fibromyalgia or other conditions like Chronic Fatigue syndrome. There are many other conditions that mimic the symptoms of Fibromyalgia. Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia is based on the presence of tender points. These tender spots are particularly located in the neck, back, shoulders and hips. There are 18 points on body for tenderness in patients of this condition.
Avatar n tn I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I've tried all of the meds they are currently prescribing for this. Has anyone tried alternative treatment for this? If so, did it work for you?
Avatar f tn It's been going on now for 3? Years as it just gets worse. I've had cortisone shots, didn't help my left foot is worse then my right. Could it be to do with my white blood cells? Please help me figure out what I can do next to help stop this pain...
Avatar f tn I have fibromyalgia ,for about 16 yrs..hydrochodone helps so much with the symptoms. I've tried to go off it several times but either wasn't successful or went back on it due to fibromyalgia symptoms . Now I'm needing more and more taking 4-6 daily just to function . I don't know what to do. my daughter is a nurse and says that I also have to be true to myself and the pain I suffer. But I feel like I'm in "such a trap" and I hate it! Any one have any advice for me?
415098 tn?1214860436 They now know that people with fibromyalgia have pain to the touch in specific spots on their body... this aides in diagnosis. Your doctor can identify if you have problems in enough of these areas to warrant a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, especially since you've already had the CT's, etc. Google the words "Fibromyalgia and tender points" and you should find a few web sites that talk about this in more detail. God Bless!
Avatar f tn i wish i could help you i have the same symptoms plus,if you find out please let me know,I am thinking that i have some kind of neuopathy but i can't get into a neuro doc until the end of feburary
Avatar n tn Some medications do help lower the symptoms of fibromyalgia. These include analgesics such as Tylenol and Motrin. Some doctors will prescribe antidepressant medications, although there are many adverse effects. Anti-seizure drugs are the conventional treatment for fibromyalgia. These include Neurontin and Lyrica. Nobody really knows how these medications treat the symptoms (particularly the aches and pains) of fibromyalgia. These medications can help some individuals with fibromyalgia.
1168938 tn?1327157832 E. ALSO my friend has fibromyalgia and she has all your symptoms lol. Mind you though she has tender points, do you have tender points if not it cant be FMS. Check out M.E. though because a lot of your symptoms match. (and MS actually).
Avatar n tn org/posts/Pain-Management/Abdominal-pain-for-2-weeks/show/1601456 Does Savella seem to help with your symptoms of Fibro? I hope so and I hope that your pain will be better controlled. Please let us know how you are doing. We'll be interested to hear how you are adjusting to the medication.... and if it is effective.
1399618 tn?1286469531 Could it be that some nerve is again relevant to his pain or are these actual signs' of fibromyalgia. I would love to help him. I myself have back issues' which I was supposed to have operated on (didn't) but I myself dont' have the symptoms he does. Other than my legs going numb and some joint pain, however I also have psoratic arthritis and psoriasis which I use Hemura for and it works for me for the most part. Any suggestions, help would be so greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. But also my doctor said that my vitamin D level was low so she put me on 50,000 units of it. I was wondering could my vitamin D level being low have anything to do with my fatigue and flu-like feeling? What are the usual symptoms of vitamin D level being low????
Avatar f tn However, there are medications and other therapies that can help treat the symptoms of fibromyalgia. It's important to remember, though, that everyone is different, so what may work for someone else with fibro may not work for you and vice versa. Sometimes it is a lot of trial and error between you and your doctor to determine the right combination of meds/therapies, etc. for you. Best of luck!
Avatar n tn (which I know I am low with having CFS/FM myself) What are the symptoms? Symptoms vary, but most people have upper body obesity, rounded face, increased fat around the neck, and thinning arms and legs. Children tend to be obese with slowed growth rates. Other symptoms appear in the skin, which becomes fragile and thin. It bruises easily and heals poorly. Purplish pink stretch marks may appear on the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, arms and breasts.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if you could tell me anything that would help with my fibromyalgia symptoms. Some of my symptoms include: severe fatigue, severe pain and muscle soarness, headache, flu - like feeling all the time.
Avatar n tn I just turned 46 this year and my fibro type symptoms seem to have gotten worse. My right knee, both hips and my arm joints are completely stiff. I have a cracking popping nose in my joints. My concern is that now I am noticing that my feet and ankles are swollen. I do my best to elevate them, but I do sit at a desk for most of the day. I also live in a hot and humid climate.
Avatar f tn As time has passed and I have done my own research ( as if I am a medical person ) I feel like my symptoms are more in the arena of Fibromyalgia. My body hurts constantly and I am losing concentration and seem to be in a "fog" at times. My menstral cycle has stopped, it has been over 1 year since I have had a cycle. I am 44 years old! I am becoming more and more anxious and I am starting to feel depressed. I am an extremely happy person what is happening?
Avatar f tn Although, I do not seem to have severe, debilitating pain that I hear so many fibromyalgia patients describe. I just started PT last week to help with my cervical spine issues, so we weill see if that helps with the headaches. It would be nice to have some relief!
1033336 tn?1252509731 I visited my local GP. He prescibed me with ponstan, uphamol and gas relaxation to ward off the gas. It did help to ease the pain but was not complete. Following then onwards, I have experince pain trobbing at the back, in between the joint of knees, in between the hip joint, upper and lower both of the legs, at the joints of the arms, in between fingers, at the palm of hands and feet. Am i suffering from fibromyalgia? Do i need to do a full body check-up for diagnosis?
Avatar n tn I'd say my energy levels havent always been great for as long as I remember but I can still run 5 or 6 mile runs almost 3 times per week. I am most concerned about fibromyalgia at this point. I saw a new rheumatologist today who did not rule it out. He did not examine me for the 18 points that I have read about. I told him that I had prostate problems in the past and I have had some constipation ehre and there since I was 19.
