Avatar f tn Hi! I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. I have horrible pain and my doctors are trying to work with me to find a treatment that doesn't involve heavy pain meds. I have serious issues with my digestive system and so most pain medicine such as vicoden(sp?) or any of those types constipate me. I was hoping for a natural suggestion to talk with my doctor about.

875863 tn?1271603385 He yelled at me for not taking my Vitamin D, then sent me home with 50,000 units to take 1 a week for 4 weeks. Week 1. Broke out in hives day 2. Lasted a day over a week. I didn't take the rest, thank you. My Doc said something about Osteomalacia. Rheumatologist found nothing. My body has been in severe pain and weakness for so long, I forgot how long it's been. I have Fibrmoyalgia. What's goin' on isn't my Fibro.
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 had three normal pregnancies with Fibromyalgia. Actually, my symptoms (aches and pains) were minimal with the pregnancies. The more you worry, the more you hurt. Just take your vitamins, minerals and do your exercises as directed by your doctor. You will do just fine.
Avatar f tn The only medicinal ingredient in Mucinex is Guaifenesin, an NMDA receptor antagonist (which belongs to a class of anesthetic drugs). It likely inhibits N-Methyl-D-aspartate receptor which has been associated with excitotoxicity ( factor in the TNF inflammation process). The latter could explain the possible analgesic benefits of Musinex. Just beware of long term usage as it has been linked to adverse effects such as cognitive and memory impairment. Best wishes.
675329 tn?1297288378 m sorry to go back to this, but it seems weight gain may be the least of your problems with treatment. I would start with finding another physician to provide your care for Fibromyalgia or whatever you have.

1390580 tn?1279913289 I would stick to the diet for about three months and see how you feel. Some people get relief from fibromyalgia with this diet also. Many nutrients are not absorbed if you have food intolerances and this can produce many problems in the body. If you'd like to try it, make sure you medications are gluten free and your vitamins (Nature Made is gluten free). Look the diet up on the internet - no wheat, barley, rye or oats. Use rice and potatoes and fruit and veggies and protein and fats.

Avatar m tn I had only once tested my hbsag quantity since my diagnosis two years ago. The test was done a few weeks ago and came out about 17000iu/ml. In other words quite high, that should warrant treatment immediately, in my opinion, though my dumb doctors won't put me on treatment yet. But I'm going to fight them and insist that I need antiviral treatment.
1336585 tn?1275709112 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia a year and a half ago but have had chronic pain for about 6 years. The pain is constant and only with medication can i even function on a daily basis. Some days, the meds only help a little and the achiness is so intense all i want to do is lay down and sleep. With 4 young kids, that's not always an option. The worst part about it is that no one understands the pain i'm in except for those that have this conditon.
