1033336 tn?1252509731 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 am a 22 year old female and after doing a bit of research it sounds as though I have several symptoms that occur under fibromyalgia. I have had throughout my entire life a bizarre amount of muscle problems and pain. In recent times (last 5-6 months) I have had occasions where my body and skin hurts so much that even my shirt is hurting it. This isn't an everyday, or even every week, event but it has happened probably 5 or 6 time.
Avatar n tn i was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a few months ago and i've been monitoring some of my symptoms but would like to see if anyone else has the same problems. every month when it's that time of the month is when everything gets the worse for me. my eyes are dryer, skin, mouth everything. migranes flare up, numbness in the face & i have trouble sleeping. it starts right before my period maybe about a week or a week and a half before and ends maybe a few days after the last day of my period.
Avatar f tn There may be a period of what feels like remission only to be followed by another onset of symptoms.
Avatar f tn My rheumatologist continues to test me as there is clearly something auto-immune going on on top of my fibromyalgia. Because of other symptoms he feels it is developing lupus and he is treating me for that and it is helping. If it is fibromyalgia it would often be treated by one of the drugs Lyrica (I have had great success with it), Cymbalta or Savella plus an anti-depressant.
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.
Avatar f tn to say you have fibro, other than a collection of symptoms over a period of time. I wasn't diagnosed until I was 30 and I'm 42 now. It's frustrating and debilitating at times, doctors make you feel like your crazy. I went into pain management and I just want to caution you....it can be a slippery slope. Try to learn to manage your fibro with diet, exercise (even if it hurts) and alternative medicine.
554442 tn?1221238825 Fibromyalgia (FMS or Fibro for short) is a chronic condition which causes widespread pain and fatigue as well as a variety of other symptoms. The name Fibromyalgia comes from "fibro" meaning fibrous tissues (such as tendons and ligaments), "my" meaning muscles, and "algia" meaning pain. Fibro does not cause joint pain or swelling. The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.

Avatar f tn well just got back from lawyer apt and it didn't go well. It seemed as if he didn't believe in fibromyalgia even though he didn't say that. Said that all my test came back ok that it didn't appear that i have anything wrong with me besides my one seizure on my eeg. And that even if i did win since i don't have enough credits and i have to file for ssi and my husband works that i probably won't recieve much as far as a monthly benefit.
5586759 tn?1370438872 I've had Fibromyalgia since I was a teenager and I have gone through one pregnancy already, but at the time I hadn't been diagnosed properly for the ailments that I have. It's now round two, I am pregnant again, and I'm wondering about good suggestions to help maintain lower levels of pain. Last time I was put on bed rest at 8 1/2 months and that was torture for my sciatica nerve. I'm trying to stay active and strong. I've been going through physical therapy and things of that nature.
Avatar f tn Its been almost three years ago that I posted on this website about my fibromyalgia symptoms after that.....On 5/10/2007, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia from my rheumatologist. He started me on Lexapro 20mg and Lyrica 200mg. I felt sooo good to get a diagnoses, a name for my craziness. It was a ruff two years after that, always feeling sick but sometimes better...my period cycle, the week before it started would cause a "flare up" I would call it.
Avatar f tn Fibromyalgia and low D have the same symptoms You probably do have different health issues that need to be addressed. Raising levels is beneficial though. No I haven't heard that Low D causes missed periods. PCOS and Thyroid can.
Avatar n tn hi, i was just wanting to ask a quick question about Fibromyalgia. well first off, i have a problem sleeping, like i cant sleep period unless i do something to get me bored and i just get to exhausted to the point my body wants to finally sleep. i mean i work graveyard and im always fatigued daily you would think i get home i would pass out at least? i wake up fatigued and feeling lazy and there are nights where i sleep 8 hours and still wake up the same feeling?
Avatar f tn "The primary symptoms of fibromyalgia include widespread musculoskeletal pain, severe fatigue, and disturbed sleep. Fibromyalgia means pain in the muscles, ligaments, and tendons – the soft fibrous tissues in the body. Most patients with fibromyalgia say that they ache all over. Their muscles may feel like they were pulled or overworked. Sometimes fibromyalgia symptoms include muscle twitches and burning sensations.
Avatar n tn Lyme disease can cause all of those symptoms. My symptoms are all over but the neuro symptoms were mostly on the left side of my body. All my tests were normal too so I got the fibro diagnosis. I have improved considerably from antibiotic treatment.
Avatar n tn I moved, changed docs, and was put on Armour, and ALL my symptoms stopped. It wasn't fibromyalgia at all!! My doc explained to me that Synthroid and T4-only meds are leaving most everyone with symptoms that they have no idea are due to an inferiour med. I've since joined thyroid groups on Yahoo, and discovered this has been the scenario of LOTS of other folks--being given diagnoses which were REALLY due to either being hypothyroid, or not being on a med that WORKED!!
Avatar n tn had knee surgery in Dec. Followed by more pain than I expected. After about a month began to have fibromyalgia symptoms. Now at 3 months, fibro has taken over my body. I have to do required exercises & stretched, but have pain in my muscles after even a short period of exercise. How can I deal with this?
Avatar n tn There is no specific treatment for fibromyalgia but analgesics like Tramadol have been found very useful and safe in alleviating the symptoms. Take care!
470168 tn?1237474845 By recovered I mean that she still has to stick with the diet etc, but all her symptoms have gone and she is now back in work. My symptoms are going also (over 9 months). I no longer wake up exhausted or fall asleep after dinner. I function well into the evening (ironing and washing dishes). This is a huge improvement for me. Some of my continual muscle pain and spasms have gone and so has the cognitive fog.
Avatar n tn I have recurrent cold symptoms during my period. I have noticed the symptoms for about a year but for the last six months they have happened every month around the third day of my period. Symptoms include aching joints, blocked nose and headaches as well as generally feeling awful. Periods are heavy and painful with clotting for about seven-nine days. Cold Symptoms usually last 5-7days.
Avatar m tn Hello everyone! I would just like to thank you in advance for Reading my post. I am a 21 year old male who was once extremely active but my health has deteriorated over the past 5 years. I have been to over 25 doctor visits over the past 5 years but have been unable to find a direct cause for my symptoms. I can’t even count the amount of times I’ve had blood taken (>20 times).
Avatar f tn ) with this condition, I looked at the symptoms and realized that I never had any symptoms from this condition. They say that it normally gets better as you age.... but I never had joint pain when I was a child or even several years after my mono (CFS) diagnosis. So in my case... I don't believe this condition has affected me... at least not that I'm aware of. Have you tried massage therapy ? I often get Tuina massages and highly recommend !
Avatar n tn Hi Karmen, Your symptoms are very similar to those caused by vitamin b12 deficiency. The fact that you have already been diagnosed with Chronn's disease would make this even more suspect as deficiency can be one of the side effects of Chronn's. Ask your doctor if he has tested your b12 level and don't accept that it is "normal" without knowing the actual result.
215021 tn?1224886057 Have any one out there been diagnosed with both thyroid problems,(particularly Hypo/hashi's), AND Fibromyalgia? I AM CONVINCED THERE IS A CONNECTION Since my PT 6 months ago, I have had increasing problems with Fibro pain. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia 5 years ago and generally manage the symptoms with various pain medications. However, since the op' the joint pain has gotten worse again and I am now convinced there is a connection.
2010625 tn?1329375656 My advice is to take a spiral notebook and write down everything that happens to you, as far as your symptoms go, in a 30 day time frame. Note your symptoms before your menstral cycle (pain,anxiety, and depression are worse before that time and it is called PMS for women.) The best thing that any one with Fibromyalgia can do is EAT Responsibly, EXERCISE, Sleep well, and take as few meds as possible. I am doing research right now to find a way to help myself and other people.
Avatar f tn I know exactly what you have, its Fibromyalgia!' Of course I had never heard the word, so it was all new to me. My symptoms were fatique, brain fog and no concentration along with the soreness on my chest along the sides of my ribcage and down my spine. Then when I pressesd on the inside of elbows and knees it felt like they were bruised. I was anemic and had sleep apnea.
Avatar n tn He also said he did not think I had a neurological problem since I had no signs of nerve damage but thought I should go see a Rhumatologist for a Fibromyalgia evaluation. At this point I am not sure where to go. Do you think the hand and foot symptoms are related? Would Fibromyalgia make sense? I though that was mainly muscular leg and back pain and affected primarily women. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn But I also understand that these are symptoms that coincide with hypothyroid disorder. For the same two month period I have experienced right neck and throat pain that radiates to the right chin and ear as well. The anterior right side of neck is sensiive to the touch although the extent of sensitivity varies. At times with swallowing I've felt resistance n the right side of my throat. I've also experienced headaches generated from this pain as well.
