Avatar f tn I am also under investigation for MS/Autoimmune disease (for last 18 months). Fibromyalgia is diagnosed by a Rheumatologist and with treatment it can be very well maintained.

Avatar n tn The cause of your symptoms needs to be analyzed. It could be due to fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s disease, H pylori infection, anemia, liver disorders, diabetes, hypothyroidism, Vit B12 or Vit D deficiency and due to calcium or magnesium deficiency. It can also be due to sleep related disorders. In women it can be due to hormonal disturbances related to PCOD/menopause and in men it can be due to low testosterone.

Avatar dr m tn s controversial to say that most of insomnia is actually a breathing issue, but take a look at all the studies that show that having insomnia places you at a higher risk for developing depression, diabetes, and heart disease later in life—all complications of obstructive sleep apnea. Of course CBT is still very useful and should be recommended much more often than offered currently. In addition, good sleep hygiene is still the gold standard and must be tried first.

587071 tn?1218542387 Once he found more lumps he then examend my groin area.That is were he found more.I then went in for a biopsy of my groin area.Every thing came out okay but I still have the lumps.My family doctor thinks fibromyalgia is all in my head and its not a real disease.How ever the rumatodaligist thought the other way.Since I had know swelling of my joints they ruled out arthrities. Even though I dont think I have fibromyalgia it could be that I do.
Avatar f tn She has made another appointment with a doctor. Sometimes it takes many test to figure out a treatment for symptoms. Anyone have any suggestions as to what is going on with her or similar symptoms?
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.
394017 tn?1255014532 However, remember also that anxiety and worry themselves can increase the symptoms of fibromyalgia, so my first advice for you is to stop the worrying. You may experience a lot of symptoms as your treatment progresses but just cross the bridge when you get there. Other strategies to minimize fibromyalgia symptoms is to take some form of anti-depressant medication (this works for me. yes, I also have fibromyalgia).
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.
