Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia treatment mayo


627388 tn?1222201812 Has anyone from the MS forum ever seek treatment for their MS at the Mayo Clinic? If so, how was your as your experience with physicians from the clinic? I am considering driving up to Mayo at some point if my neurologist in town can't definatively diagnosis me.
Avatar m tn I see a lot of people posting that they are getting treatment? What type of treatment are you getting? My Hep. is a jerk and has said nothing except, " your diabetes won't kill you, this will do it a lot quicker". I expected a whole lot more out of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. I am going to try to get a second opinion outside of Mayo and see what they say.

444414 tn?1376579695 I have seen my PCP, many specialists that she has referred me to and gone to the Mayo Clinic as a final resort. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's thyroidits and several stomach ulcers and FMS. Upon my discharge, I was referred to a physical medicine dr at Mayo. Over many exams sensitivity abnormalities were found in my legs, ie patches of numbness which no one could place.
Avatar f tn It turns out that she has spina bifida, Chiari, and that her sacroiliac joints are fused together, indicating a spondylitis disease like I have too. She's being sent to Mayo Clinic. I am sooooo glad that I talked to her about Chiari. She's finally going to get appropriate treatment after all these years.
Avatar m tn • Seem to get sick from antibiotics I have been tested for a lot of things and am running out of things it could be. I spent some time at the mayo clinic seeing various specialists and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia basically because they just couldn’t find anything wrong with me so I struggle with accepting the diagnosis. All tests and bloodwork seem to come back normal except a moderately elevated anti-histone and slightly elevated liver enzymes.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I have hundreds of lumps in the fat on my body. They are extremely painful and in all parts of my body. I started having them on my rib cage forty years ago and they have now spread over my whole body.They are in strands near my joints and the slightest pressure hurts. I need to know if other people who have fibromyalgia have these lumps. My rheumatologist says he has never seen a case of Dercum's and did not want to hear about it.
2010625 tn?1329375656 I was just wondering what causes Fibromyalgia? Can Anxiety, Depression/Bipolar, IBS, or Genital Herpes cause it?
Avatar f tn My feet and ankles sometimes hurt so bad I can't sleep or walk. I am on Lyrica for fibromyalgia and it makes the swelling worse.My blood sugar is coming down slowly with the insulin.I was put on another blood pressure pill but it made the swelling worse. I take Lisinopril and a water pill and am trying another new pill. My blood is still high. I wonder if I should go off the Lyrica? I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 40 years ago. I have lumps in all the adipose tissue on my body.
Avatar n tn Over a year ago was in a car accident and my muscles and joints hurt so bad most of the time its hard to have a normal day. Its not arthritis or lupus and Dr's are now saying fibromyalgia..I also have extreme burning in my joints and neck is this also a symptom of fibromyalgia?
Avatar f tn Hello. I am new to this group. Recently diagnosed at Mayo Clinic (after 3 visits during past 4 months) with Fibromyalgia, Central Sensitization Syndrome, Sjogren's Syndrome, Dysautonomia (Autonomic Dysfunction), Migraines and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. Today, a local rheumatologist in South Florida said "I don't support disability for fibromyalgia." After I questioned this, she said "never, ever" not even when combined with the other diagnoses and symptoms.
1830047 tn?1321671393 Now, with a diagnosis of FM, sleep apnea, PLM, and chronic migraine and some other diseases that are 'to be monitored for yearly' per the Mayo Clinic (great people) my question is when do you do further testing? I mean, according to my research anything other than my eye color can be blamed on FM. When a person has new and/or worsening symptoms how do they know when to look beyond FM?
Avatar f tn has anyone tried coconut oil to treat fibromyalgia with any success? My fibro started after a viral infection...then I had terrible muscle spasms and a strange weakness in my neck, as though I could not hold up my head. I had a lot of pain in my hips, buttocks, and upper back in the trapezius area. I was at the end of perimenopause and I had recently stopped taking birth control pills. The spasms stopped after a couple of months and my doctor put me on trazadone.
136956 tn?1425609872 I just love it when people say things like Fibromyalgia isn't a real sickness, and here I thought I've been in horrible pain for 15 years, oh silly me! I'm on the Marshall Protocol too, and I recommend it to anyone with a real illness like CFS, FMS, etc, and to those who suffer similar symptoms but struggle to find a diagnosis as many people do! Plateletgal, I really appreciated your comment about MS patients going through the same thing 30 years ago that we're facing today!
975514 tn?1325001538 section_id=27670#sec_27670 I urge you to introduce yourself below and tell us a little about what brought you to the Fibromyalgia/CFS Forum. Again, welcome to MedHelp and the Fibromyalgia/CFS forum!
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar n tn // Just wanted to check if you've found-out solutions for your "Obstructed Defecation Disorder" & your persistant rectal spasms. Again, my story is i was about to die because of this medical condition, as at one point i was unable to pass out for about 10 days! Then I had this BOTOX injection in my anal muscles, & my problem is almost totally solved.
Avatar f tn That was 2, maybe 3 years ago. Oddly enough, when I went on the Mayo Clinic site, doing a search on the Mayo site brings up nothing on PIS. Maybe there is something up there now?!?! My GP did some of his training at Mayo when I asked him about LDN and PIS (I had read somewhere that they were doing research on both) my doc said he would contact some old friends at Mayo.
143746 tn?1301278422 Overall, though, I am wondering can POTS cause all of these symptoms, or does it sound like I have something like Fibromyalgia or IBS/IBD with comorbid POTS? I have had these symptoms since early January 2011 and they are taking a toll on my ability to function. Please help!
612876 tn?1355518095 I know many of us agonize over the decision of whether to rely on local doctors, travel perhaps hundreds upon hundreds of miles to get to one of the few dedicated syncope/autonomic clinics (such as Mayo, Cleveland Clinic, Vanderbilt...), or perhaps seek a middle-ground by relying on specialists at a big-name university teaching hospital that nonetheless lacks dedicated autonomic care.
Avatar f tn I had what I'm sure was a couple of bouts of fibromyalgia the first few weeks after treatment and the first one literally floored me...brought me to all fours when I coughed or sneezed, hurt to breath (back/chest wall muscles), every step for the next 2 days sent electric bolts of pain through my spinal muscles... then it all spontaneously resolved over a few days only to return the next week in one arm/shoulder, then resolved as it hit the other arm/shoulder...
253566 tn?1219683299 Mine was normal both before and during treatment, but dropped and remained low normal for over a year post treatment. My symptons aren't as bad as yours, so haven't supplemented the testosterone, but you might consider at least trying it, even if you're in the low or perhaps even mid-normal range. You also mention your lab results are out of whack. What tests specifically aren't right?
475586 tn?1225027354 A dear friend told me I ought to skip these doctors and just head up to Mayo, but I don't think they treat anyone that doesn't have a more concrete diagnosis do they? Anyway, let me know what you think.
Avatar n tn I would not bother with any Endo for which you did not have assurance of clinical treatment for hypothyroidism, instead of just based on TSH. Also would want to know about treatment of low cortisol, if that becomes necessary. Many doctors don't want to handle low cortisol issues.
1741471 tn?1407162630 Changes in gait, loss of balance, clumsy coordination are all symptoms that we tend to associate with old age until now when researchers in Alzheimer are seeing how this extremely important changes can lead to early diagnosis and effective treatment. I have been training a client with Dementia and I can see clear changes in posture, gait, coordination. The disease afflicts 5.4 million in the USA, and the number is forecast to spike to 16 million in 2050 as Baby Boomers age.
591546 tn?1244640145 , you can find a physician in your area who frequently diagnoses and treats fibromyalgia. Many of these physicians are interested in fibromyalgia and were treating the condition long before Lyrica was available. Some links and information on both RA and fibro: --- Bacterial Infections in Autoimmune Diseases
Avatar m tn I have had a speech problem, which I attribute to a mini stroke as diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fl. They also diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia. Since it didn't clear up, I sought a Speech Therapist who diagnosed me with Dysarthria. I have not received any treatment yet. I have had the condition for several months. I used to fall a lot, but I have learned to be very careful. My vision is blurry. I also have Diabetes, type II.

I dont think ill ever get used to this treatment , its dif every day, one day i got the headaches and achey legs the next i havent its crazy you jst dont know wot to expect.
329994 tn?1301666848 Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain. Fibromyalgia occurs in about 2 percent of the population in the United States. Women are much more likely to develop the disorder than are men, and the risk of fibromyalgia increases with age.
Avatar n tn I remember that no one had found a treatment. Am 71. Had severe fibromyalgia attack several years before the onset of this, with neuropathy. Also had trigeminal neuralgia age 20-35, finally totally relieved with chiropractic treatment. Some family history of retinitis pigmentosa.
