Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia treatment exercise


Avatar f tn A person must have history of widespread pain lasting since 3 months and pain and tenderness in at least 11 of 18 areas to confirm the diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Treatment of fibromyalgia aims at pain reduction and control of other associated symptoms. Physical therapy, massage, relaxation techniques and exercise may be tried. Sometimes your doctor may prescribe an antidepressant or muscle relaxant if there is no relief from pain and associated depression. Hope you find this information useful.

675329 tn?1297288378 boy o boy do I agree with VintageChicken. Your doctor sounds like a prescription nut!. Do you have a diagnosis? or is he just pulling the names of medicine out of his, ah, er, hat? I must say I've never heard of Gabapentin nor Zonegram. I'm sorry to say I have heard of Topamax-simply no place in Fibromyalgia treatment from every report I've heard, read, seen and made from personal experience. It cripples every mind that I've learned about.

Avatar m tn Pain killers, stress management, antidepressants form the mainstay of treatment in fibromyalgia. Are you on any antidepressants? Paxil, Loratab like any other antidepressant leads to weight gain. There are very few differences between fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. There are only few differences like in CFS there is low-grade fever and sore throat, the onset of Fibromyalgia is traced to a physical or emotional trauma.

Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, all that my doctor tells me to do is Exercise, and it's not working ( I don't really think she knows about Fibromyalgia). 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 f tn I went thru 48 months of treatment developed fibromyalgia and worsened joint and bone pain. I have lost a lot of dexterity in my hands and fingers don't have a lot of feeling at the tips, but that's from the treatment. Pre-treatment I had a lot of winter arthritis-like pain in my joints and hands. Don't know if this helps, but I'm new to this forum. Wish I'd seen it when I was on treatment.
1698289 tn?1306806957 I've been taking Cymbalta for about 8 weeks.

Avatar f tn ) With the extra malic acid and magnesium, fibromyalgia sufferers can handle exercise and still get out and about the next day. The combination magnesium and malic acid may also be helping the bodies handle physiologic stress better. (Caution: People with heart or kidney problems should check with their doctors before taking supplemental magnesium.) Antioxidants help reduce free-radical damage and fight inflammation.
666152 tn?1225385558 I agree with Force, exercise has helped me more than anything. I'm 12 weeks post treatment. At times during treatment I was too weak to do more than walk to the bathroom, but I kept as active as the anemia would permit. Swimming was the easiest, That way I wasn't fighting gravity and did not have any joint-related pain. As soon as I finished treatment I resumed other exercise, starting with walking short distances and working my way up to a more vigorous program.
