Fibromyalgia treatment rsd

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia treatment rsd


Avatar f tn They agreed it was fibromyalgia. I received trigger point injections in my back and neck which eased the pain of muscle spasms. However, my legs had never stopped hurting since the surgery. My surgeon just said "they should feel better", but ordered a nerve conduction study and a brain MRI. All negative. In the midst of all the medical issues, I began a relationship that quickly became unhealthy after I learned of cheating and lies.
535089 tn?1400677119 I will see him in August and will discuss both FM and RSD. According to others with RSD it sounds more like what I am experiencing. Other comments are welcomed.
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?
523707 tn?1212472541 I just happened to notice the mention of RSD on this site and was wondering if there is any person suffering from RSD that had a sudden onset of fluid retention that has never gone away. After going through so many workups and blood tests and scans and seeing so many doctors only to hear that they just don't know why I suddenly put on 15 lbs. of fluid while on vacation in 2005 and to this date it hasn't gone away. Actually, once I was put on diuretics, all the fluid came off for one week.
Avatar n tn Just go on the internet and you will find site after site after site that has people who suffer from RSD, and many who suffer from both RSD and Fibromyalgia. To find an ER doctor who has no idea what that is, is very sad to me.
Avatar n tn I have RSD & was recently diagnosed with Fibromyalgia also. Recently I believe the RSD has spread to my feet/ankles & calves. They are really swollen and are not going down no matter what I do. Its been months now & no change. I don't eat salt, had every blood test & every other test done to rule out any other cause for the swelling and everything was normal. I don't live where its hot, so the heat isn't causing it, its been very mild this summer, no real hot days at all.
1737348 tn?1312916526 Later my arm and hand blew up to balloons and the pain never has ended. The doc never sent me for treatment and later I was diagnosed with RSD. I can't be fixed and have had a number of nerve blocks. They build on each other but due to the frequency they can't give me a local before the 2 injections into my spine as its to frequent. When emotions are painful I feel extreme physical pain. My career and quality of life has also suffered. Do others feel the same?
Avatar f tn Is this (mouth sores or sores on tongue) a symptom of Sjogren's Syndrome? Or is it a symptom of Fibromyalgia? Do any of you get this with either Sjogren's or Fibro and if so, which one? I have only been dx with Fibro, so I do not know if I have Sjogren's or not. I just thought this symptom may be an important clue.
680296 tn?1229624581 My other tests are normal, so far, including MRI, VEP, BAEP, EMG and an MRA. Now, I have already been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (Cleveland Clinic, 1990) and RSD (Jan. 2008). This was because I had surgery on my foot to remove a Morton's Neuroma which showed up after I broke my toe in June 2007. My symptoms over the last 5-6 months have gotten worse. I went from the burning and pain in my right foot to the same in my left foot (mirrored over) and the RSD is now in both feet and legs.

908504 tn?1269107499 I have Fibromyalgia and horrible pelvic pain. My doctor just startedd me on Savella. Does anyone have any experiences with this new med they want to share with me?
491984 tn?1463402330 Have they ever considered RSD (reflex sympathetic dystrophy)? It's too complex to try to nutshell here, but if you Google it see if it sounds like what you are going through. From just the little bit you have said, to me it has a lot of the traits of it.
Avatar f tn Have you injured yourself in that area? I only ask because I have RSD/CRPS, a severe, chronic pain syndrome. Have you gone to a Pain Management Specialist? The one pain we all share is the burning pain, and your stabbing pain is also one we have. It can be triggered by an injury, minor surgery, in rare cases, it can occur spontaneously. I also have Fibromyalgia, but burning pain is not one of the symptoms of Fibromyalgia, just our RSD/CRPS.
Avatar n tn Since you're so uncomfortable with this, you really need to see your doctor. It could be a lot of things. I have that same feeling due to both fibromyalgia and nerve pain from RSD. My son loves to rub my wrist really lightly before he goes to sleep and it is true agony and I usually have to tell him to stop. There are things they can prescribe for shingles pain, nerve pain and fibromyalgia that can help with this kind of pain. I feel for you as I know how excrutiating it can be.
Avatar f tn I know I've had many surgeries on a joint in my thumb that failed. At some point (no one is sure when), I also developed RSD. The RSD has spread from my thumb to hand, wrist and up to my elbow. I now have treatments for the RSD which help for a while. I do know that RSD can spread from one area to many. Have you seen a pain specialist? That may be a good place to start. You also could have more than one thing going on. Some of your symptoms sound like fibromyalgia..
Avatar n tn I had another myelogram done but my doctor said that it didn't show any more leakage. He said it might be positional. I don't have the SCS anymore - I had it removed. I also have RSD, Fibromyalgia, neck and back problems, dizziness, balance problems, etc. How can my symptoms stay the same but the diagnosis be different? Could there be another leak the myelogram didn't show? Any suggestions? Thanks.
Avatar n tn In December went to my Neurologist, for my Nacolepsy and RSD and he said you have Restless Leg/Fibromyalgia and I Started on Lyrica and also something for sleep. It has helped still have flare ups. PLEASE DO NOT GO THROUGH WHAT I DID.
Avatar f tn Look there is no one modality of treatment that solves all issues but this is the first time I hear fibromyalgia is cuasing the pain in the head.. usually we think the other way. What do you think TMJdoc? does the comments above trouble you too?
680296 tn?1229624581 I have a wonderful one who also HAS RSD, so she understands fully what is involved. Aqua Therapy has been the best treatment for me. It won't make it go away, but just being in the water without the stress of gravity has been wonderful. You should mention that to your sister. I don't know if RSD is related to MS. I often wonder if Fibromyalgia isn't related though. I was diagnosed with that in 1990.
Avatar f tn Your primary diagnosis ? Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Your current treatment ? Lyrica and Adderall Is your current treatment working ? So-so, I guess it's working my pain is down somewhat but there are so many more symptoms that are really bothering me that my medications don't touch as if yet. What type of physician is treating you ? Rheumy What have you found helps you the most ? The adderall help me make it through the day.
Avatar f tn Bc I agree if I am allergic to the Vicodin, chances are probably good that I'm allergic to other narcotics as well and that's important to know since that's what my rheumy's and pcdr's using to treat my Fibromyalgia and RSD. And I'd also like to ask if he(my rhemy) thought I needed to see a dermatologist too. I'm kind of confused as to why my PC dr didn't tell me to see an Allergist or Dermatologist so that' s why I want to ask my Rheumy if he thinks I should.
372366 tn?1284407473 He thought maybe a joint fliud issue and sent me to a orthopedic surgeon, he thought a pain syndrome and sent me to a anithesiologist that confirmed RSD. My legs were swollen and they looked like clubs. The pain was and is hell. Me being a synic thought this RSD thing was not possible and went to a physiatrist, after again going through my detailed history he thought it may not be RSD.
367247 tn?1310679253 html Your mention that the pain is spreading is consistent with RSD. RSD is not a disease, it is a neurological syndrome. A syndrome is a collection of symptoms. Researchers may not know the cause of the syndrome, but can often treat the symptoms. For instance, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome, and after fifteen years I found out that it was caused by infection with Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacteria that causes Lyme Disease.
Avatar f tn I have 1a and just finished treatment last January,in June I'll find out if it worked. DX of Hep was found incidentally when a physiatrist did a work up on me because of the constantly increasing pain in my feet, legs, hips, shoulders and back over the last five years.The GP did arthritis tests all came back neg. A Orthapaedic surgeon said a pain syndrome,RSD, another Orth.. said my knee needed a scrapping so I let him and it didn't help.
Avatar m tn But some of the medications I'm on for the RSD and arthritis and joint pain help my fibromyalgia. After having it for so long, I have learned to mostly manage it. I hope you'll take advantage of what this forum has to offer and also share your experiences here. It's a great place to get information and to vent. I don't know about anyone else, but for me, one of the hardest things about having fibromyalgia was that people don't get it.
684012 tn?1227994056 I have been seeing this neruro dr for about 5 months now she did diagnoise me with fibromyalgia, cfs, & neuropathy. We are trying to find ways to control the pain. When I take the Ultram, it makes my face break out with little bumps on my checks. Has this happenned to anyone else? My current meds are really not working, I have to go between Ultram & Vicodin, and Skelaxin for a muscle relaxer. I use Lyrica but is causes my ankles and hands to swell.
Avatar n tn My last surgery fused the joint, and I still don't have relief from the pain. During all this I ended up with RSD so now the pain isn't contained to just the joint. You could have carpal tunnel syndrome. Or arthritis. Or RSD. Or any combination of that. You could also have something else. Carpal tunnel and arthritis should be fairly easy to diagnose though. You don't say how old you are. Is your pain getting worse? Does it come and go or is it fairly constant?
Avatar f tn Has anyone had success with D-Ribose? I am confused about its role in helping fibromyalgia particularly because it is classified as a type of sugar. I thought sugar was bad for fibromyalgia because it promotes inflammation or is this type of sugar not considered to have an inflammatory effect?
362971 tn?1201990634 I am gt 3a with a month left of treatment. First viral load was done at 10 1/2 weeks and undetected. Has anyone experienced a problem with the nerves in their feet and legs with a burning or hyper sensitive sensation. I would get it off on on before treatment but it subsided over the last 6 years. Now in treatment it became very pronounced at around week 4 of tx. Then subsided. Now with a month to go it is coming back again. Could it be CYRO GLOBULEMIA acting up.
Avatar f tn Allodynia is a clinical feature of many painful conditions, such as neuropathies, complex regional pain syndrome, postherpetic neuralgia, fibromyalgia, and even migraines. Some types of sensory neuropathies occur and progress very slowly, others sort of wax and wane (with flare-ups) and some are progressive.
