Avatar f tn I have Fibromyalgia and CFS. I found posts on the internet that said Mucinex worked to stop Fibro pain. I had nothing to lose so I tried it. It worked for me. Take a ton of vitamins and supplements. Had my amalgams removed. Looking for a good Dr. to continue treatment because I still suffer greatly from CFS. Some days I can't get out of bed still. But I am not in the excruciating pain. I take 600 mg Extended release Mucinex at night.
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!
Avatar n tn This thins mucus so that it *will* drain, also allowing the throat more moisture. I have also come across mention of people using guaifenesin in their treatment of fibromyalgia (https://www.drugs.com/comments/guaifenesin/for-fibromyalgia.html). Before I was ever diagnosed with fibromyalgia I noticed a decrease in pain that I was experiencing, so although I'm skeptical about the connection, I certainly won't discredit the possibility.
216278 tn?1308864682 I think that most women on the site for even a day or two will come across the concept of Mucinex or Robitusson to help increase (actually thin) cervical mucous, but did you know that there is so much more? I am a strong proponent of Napro technology - it is a relatively inexpensive (you need to pay co-pays for visits to the practitioner - mine cost $25 for every two weeks; well worth it considering what we paid for the IVF).
Avatar f tn I just purchased a book titled "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia Fatigue", and in it the author (Dr. R. Paul St. Amand, M.D.) mentions a protocol that he himself uses, and that he also tells all of his fibro patients to try. It requires you to take upto, but not limited to 2400mg of guaifenesin (Mucinex) daily. He says that with this protocol, you will notice that your symptoms will at first become worse, but will gradually disappear.
Avatar n tn It has been said that those of us who suffer from Fibramyalgia have too much phospherus in our bodies and should look at taking Mucinex. Apparently there are chemicals in Mucinex that aid in breaking down the minerals we don't need in our bodie which help in the pain level. I have not tried this, I just heard about this last week. Nothing medically perscribed here accept my Methadone and my Lyrica which have seemed to work very well thus far.
1571878 tn?1354953383 Lastly, I requested to enter outpatient treatment for DXM abuse about a month and a half ago. It's an amazing program, and I want to share what I'm learning with those that desire it. I started DXM in September when I had a terrible upper respiratory infection and took Robitussin, thinking nothing of it. Because I am on fluoxetine (Prozac) for fibromyalgia management, I began TRIPPING BALLS. I had heard of robotripping in college, but I considered it an old wives' tale. WRONG.
Avatar f tn I have been using mucinex to help clear up the phlem and i am still have coughing fits, but no more phlem.
Avatar f tn The most effective treatment he has had yet was one perscribed by a doctor for a sinus inffection, however it only worked for a short period of time again. His condition is standing in the way of everything he loves about life so I have recently committed myself to research. Any suggestions, helpful research tips, reccommendations for great ENT's in the southern California area, would all be really appreciated.
Avatar n tn I tried treatment for Fibromyalgia, nightmare, I wouldn't advise anyone to go there unless absolutely necessary! The plan is to do a lot of the work myself, ie I've given up dairy and for the first time in years my sinuses and head aren't throbbing, next is Wheat, then, to rule out bacteria/parasites in the gutt I plan on doing a complete colonic detox (you should see what comes out of your body, scary!) Anyone HAS to feel better with that **** out of your body!
665881 tn?1248930597 Hi, There can be several reasons of your generalized body numbness or stinging feeling although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. Most likely your symptoms could be due to peripheral neuropathy such as injury to a nerve, pressure on spinal/peripheral nerves (neuropathy),diabetic or alcoholic neuropathy, vitamin deficiency ( esp.
149081 tn?1242401432 I'm now having vertigo problems and nothing seems to be working. Anyone have any success with treatment of thyroid goiters helping these symptoms?
407149 tn?1211736107 It usually goes away after a week or 10 days. I have it now and I hope it goes away soon. If anyone learns of a treatment or cure let us know.
Avatar m tn It gently pumps the saline solution into your sinuses, and I don’t know if it pumps saline all the way up into the far reaches of your sinuses, because of gravity, but it follows the same line of treatment expressed here. Neilmed Sinus Rinses squirt saline into the maxillary and ethmoid sinuses. It does not work for infections in the upper sinuses, says so right on the box. It only costs $13 at any local pharmacy. There is also a neti pot, which was demonstrated by Dr.
Avatar n tn I then googled the whole lot of them together. Everything I got came up as showing I had Fybromyalgia. I then started reading about Fibromyalgia and what treatments were available for Fibromyalgia sufferers. I repeatedly came across Magnesium from different sources. So I searched for which Magnesium is best and I went and bought some about 2 hours later...within 3 days, I went from feeling like I was 70years old (I was 30) to being 25 again, the difference was that huge for me. http://www.
Avatar f tn The dexilant seems to be helping so far (it's my third day on it now) but I am early into this new treatment. My internist also sent me to my cardio when I first started experiencing the burning just to rule out other issues and all was fine regarding the heart. My gastroenterologist told me not to do anything natural or med wise except for the dexilant right now-I asked him about drinking aloe which I had started doing a few weeks ago and he told me to stop.
Avatar n tn My primary doctor seems to think that I am suffering from Station Tube Dysfunction caused by the swelling in my sinuses, I haven't found much on the web about it but I was given another steroid called Methylprednisolone and plain Mucinex (not MucinexD or DM) to help treat the swelling or compression of the station tube running from my sinuses to my ear. So far so good but this the first morning of treatment. I plan to update this forum if this helps.
Avatar n tn I've been going through this for over 15yrs now. Family thinks I'm hypochondriac doctor won't even give me t3's for the pain my throat is always swollen on one side. Done the gammit of allergy tests, ear docs, eye problems-floaters, ear aches from hell neck and jaw swollen all the time, headaches. reading all of these pages has actually given me some relief!
Avatar n tn Everyday I woke up it was in a different spot, around my waist, top of my head. What is weird is alot of those places are how they diagnose fibromyalgia. But seeing as I don't have health insurance no doctor wants to talk to me unless I am dying. I sleep w/ my arm under my pillow too, doesn't everyone?
Avatar n tn I am definitely going to make sure that both ENT's are notified of the results so they can be a little more proactive in dealing with pt's with chronic sinusitis not responsive to traditional treatment. Please let me know if this pans out for you...It has certainly given me hope that I can finally have some peace from my chronic sinus infections.....
Avatar n tn What I've heard is that dizziness is usually not dangerous but there's not a lot of research on chronic dizziness, either. Good luck, if it's an ear issue I think there's a lot of treatment for it.
Avatar n tn I first went to a nurse practioner who said it was all my ears and to take mucinex. I did so but continued to get orse which is when I seen my internist. She was flipping out about how bad it was and wanted me in the hospital, I refused and did meds. I was on steroids for 30 days. I have been fine until now. My symptoms started again yesterday and I go see my internist this week. SO maybe you should find an internist and good luck I think it is more serious then some doctors are acting.
Avatar m tn i think i might add that too, I also have 4 different types of anti-histamines from when i had itching on treatment (which also treat allergies) im wondering if its worth trying one of those... i think one step at a time... i will give a week to 10 days without supplements/herbal tea's and see if it stops or gets better... if not I may add decongestant like you say cos i can hear my breathing in ears when breathing through nose...
Avatar n tn You might try and see if this gives you some relief. I take the Mucinex extended tabs. I think it's the 600mg pills, twice a day. They're over the counter. There's no doubt that I have a chronic infection, either in my ears or sinuses. At least now I know I can live with it. It doesn't control my life anymore. If you try it keep me posted and let me know how it works for you!
Avatar n tn I've also got heat treatment cream and ice treatment cream and a small tens machine. They all work - I find pain and movement stops it or at least reduces it significanting. Doctors haven't heard of this which is frustrating - the thing is to find one that will listen and try to help even though they have no idea what you're talking about.
