Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia treatment energy


Avatar n tn Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, home treatment can relieve some of the symptoms. Fibromyalgia pain is muscle pain and the most important therapy for muscle pain is regular, gentle and low-impact exercise. It keeps muscles conditioned and healthy and decreases the amount of discomfort. It is very important to try low-stress exercises such as walking, swimming, water aerobics, and biking rather than straining exercises such as weight training. Heavy exercises worsen the symptoms.
Avatar n tn m feeling very hyper, agitated and am an insomniac.. Should I just cut back and then quit all together ? I have liked having my energy back .

415098 tn?1214860436 Hi. I'm also suffering from fibromyalgia. This is a disease entity which is a diagnosis of exclusion, meaning that other organic and more common disease conditions should be ruled out first (such as spine problems or musculoskeletal problems) before making this diagnosis. Fibromyalgia are somewhat correlated with our inability to have a REM sleep (rapid-eye-movement sleep) which makes us feel unenergized and tired even the first minute we wake up.
Avatar n tn 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. But these drugs also have serious side effects.

Avatar m tn It is a Rheumatologist who you must see for a fibromyalgia diagnosis and if positive,consequent treatment follows, prescribed normally by the Rheumatologist. There is no effective standard medical treatment for fibromyalgia other than symptom management, by the way. The suspected side-effects of the acupuncture cannot be attributed to the treatment itself, as it cannot be verified. Those " strange" side effects could be easily caused by stress alone.

209591 tn?1267418314 Hi, I am a 25 year old female that was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in August along with many other things...I have been staying so tired, some days sleeping more than 15 hours....Just getting out of bed sometimes is almost impossible...For you all what has been the most helpful treatment (exercise, therapy or medication) for your fatigue? All of my medicines cause fatigue and so do all 8 to 10 diagnoses I currently have...Thanks so much for your help.
Avatar f tn Does anyone know what is the next step as far as treatment? What do the doctors first attempt for treatment? I know everyone's case is different but I just wanted to know a little bit more since there isn't much information online. If you have any info please do tell. Thank you!
5682570 tn?1372290919 (I'm not sure that this applies to you necessarily- How was your FMS diagnosed and was it a Rheumatologist that diagnosed you?) Chronic itchiness medical treatment is behind times, as symptom relieving conventional treatments don't work, since the medical establishment has failed to identify the real cause of this, unless the immune system can correct this. In Fibromyalgia , Neurotransmitter Dysregulation is something that comes up in the research circles all the time!
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 m tn Hi for the past 12 months i have been experiencing a degradation in energy. I have been to see my doctor who has taken blood samples which came back clear. The past 6 months have seen things get really bad whereupon it can take me an hour to get out of bed in the matter how much sleep i get - when i wake up it feels like i haven't been to bed. I eat a very well balanced diet, only drink water, green/red/herbal teas & taek Centrum Multi Vitamins daily.
Avatar n tn When I wake up in the morning I feel absolutely horrible. It takes every ounce of energy to get out of bed some days. Over the last 10 months I have been to my GP half a dozen times. I've seen three neurologists, my gynocologist, and even a rheumatologist several times. I also tried seeing a chiropractor with no results. I have had CT scans, MRI's, x-rays, ultrasounds, and bloodwork more times than I can count.

Avatar f tn Hello, What types of doctors have you seen to diagnose your Fibromyalgia? Have you seen a Rheumatologist? Or did your PCP doctor diagnose your Fibro? Rheumatologist are actually the doctors who created the criteria for diagnosing Fibromyalgia and without seeing a Rheumatologist, your diagnosis may be weak if you ever were to require a medical leave or disability assistance.

470168 tn?1237474845 Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (after 25 years) and have a son diagnosed as on the autistic spectrum. I am noticing that he is getting pain in/around his shoulder joint usually lasting for 24 hours. I started with the same symptoms. Does anyone else have both these conditions within the family and especially anyone with autism and fibromyalgia. On a different topic, I have had alot of success recently using dietry intervention.
Avatar f tn I am on Wellbutrin, cymbolta, and Ridlin to increase my thinking ability and give me energy. It works great and I don't have ADD. I now have more energy and guess what it has decreased my pain too. I know this is not standard treatment for FM but its working. Thank you Dr. for thinking out side the box. She also gave me some Oxycontin for break thru pain. I use it during changes in weather that hurts me more. Advil and Tylenol do not work on FM pain and your Dr. should know that.
