Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia symptoms weight gain

fibromyalgia

Avatar f tn I usually find in hypothyroidism information that it causes weight gain. I have always had the opposite problem of not being able to gain weight. Except for the past couple years my weight has been where it should be and stays pretty constant. Can you have hypothyroidism if you don't have a weight gain problem?
Avatar f tn neck, shoulders, upper back, lower back, hips, chest, breast bone (especially to the sides of it), left arm, abdomen Muscles are tender when I touch them, especially arms and thighs Hypoglycemia Weight Gain I've had heart tests, stomach tests, blood tests. Nothing shows up. I'm getting very frustrated and discouraged! Does this sound like it could be fibromyalgia? My only "tender spots" that react for me are my elbows, hips and inner knees (not as painful as hips and elbows).
1399618 tn?1286469531 He is on meds' for his back issues' oxy's and endocet however this doesn't seem to touch the pain area in his joints other than his back. He has had severe weight gain, tingling in fingers', hands etc. Often complains of headache. The pain killers' hes' on just dont' work on all of these points I have listed. He could sleep 24/7 if you let him. He will sit at the pc and fall asleep. Could it be that some nerve is again relevant to his pain or are these actual signs' of fibromyalgia.
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.

Avatar m tn One reason many conventional doctors do not think fibromyalgia is a “real” condition is that no specific medication is effective for treating this illness. 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.
Avatar n tn Hi Angela, As a fellow Fibromyalgiac, I have to say that some of what you listed as symptoms just baffled me. I've been living with it for almost 10 years now...and for the record, I can't stand it when someone says "you're fine" but insists on turning you into a walking pharmacy. But while they are not "Fibro" symptoms, it doesn't mean that everything is fine.
Avatar f tn • I have you been putting on weight the last 2 years very rapidly, and having a hard time getting pounds off and keeping them off • Always feel sad and depressed at peak • Sometimes feel cold when others are comfortable • Feel more tired more easily than anyone else • Feel throat tight when you swallow.
Avatar f tn I have heard Topamax will help curb this weight gain and help with overall weight loss. Is this true? Do you have any relavent info for me?

Avatar n tn Talk to your doctor about the possibility that your thyroid problems and weight gain may be the cause of (or symptoms of) a bit of depression. It's amazing what can trigger a change in the brain chemistry.
Avatar n tn we all are having the same problems and the catch 22 of weight gain which leads to depession which leads to weight gain etcl Any experts out there with a natural solution to losing weight with no pills. I would love to hear from someone!!
Avatar n tn I just read your comments about weight gain while taking Wellbutrin. I've been on it for a few years now for anxiety/panic problems. I take 200 mg once a day, which I'm told is a relatively low dose. My psych told me that people lose weight while on Wellbutrin. NOT ME! I've gained 50 pounds and I don't seem to be able to take it off even with diet and exercise. I started thinking it was just me. I'm sorry you've had the same experience but I'm glad to know I'm not alone.
Avatar n tn I had a hyster in 05. Same situation as all of you. I have gained 23lbs after working at Weight Watchers and losing 52lbs in 03. I have started researching weight gain and hysterectomies just yesterday. I am a Christian, believer in JC.
Avatar f tn My back and neck hurts 24/7...The only other thing I can think of is the weight gain of 50 pounds in the last 3 years. That I blame on menapause and the lack of energy to exercise like I used to??? I take melatonin and Benadryl to sleep at night, and even with that I wake up around 3AM to take more Motrin. (Motrin works better then Aspiren, Tylenol, Aleve, etc) I can't think of any other problems. I'm truly NOT a wimp.
458379 tn?1206281707 I suppose if we are left without much good medical help, our condition worsens. There're medication that will make you gain weight, besides hormonal problems. I try to do strethcing whenever my physical conditon allows. Some days, the fatigue is sooo bad, I can barely move and will myself to stretch. In general, I do find stretching help ease up the pains. Some doctors though, suggests that FMS, ME/CFS tend to have abnormal cortisol and thyroid hormones..... Kit.

5682570 tn?1372290919 Do you experience weight gain , fatigue, itchiness (already established), muscle cramping, joint pain? Have you ever been tested for Hypothyroid? (also linked often to iron deficiencies.) Have you been having G/I and digestive issues? All of the above may be interconnected, but with the limited information I have and without a clinical examination, this would be my best guess. Here is the FMS-Itchiness connection from my perspective.

Avatar n tn to lose weight (b/c I wanted to actually gain a few pounds) so the shock that I've lost 6% of my total body weight is now REALLY stressing me out causing that sore spot to hurt more. I'm a hypochondriac and have self diagnosed myself as having an undiagnosed tumor in that sore spot - LOL.
Avatar f tn I haven't had much luck going to the doctor either. Bloating/Weight gain - for a few months I was gaining 2 lbs a week despite exercise and healthy diet. 50 lbs total gained Missed 5 periods consecutively. Not pregnant and not on birth control Swelling - hands swell up randomly, occasionally accompanied by face swelling. Stiffness - Especially in the morning.

470168 tn?1237474845 If I could exercise I could deal with the weight gain better. I recently reduced the Lyrica but I started feeling bad again and increased it back up. I am just going to battle the weight gain harder and get surgery on my foot so I can walk. It's good to keep the dose as low as possible and still get help from it.
