374573 tn?1199670146 Update on Mechanisms and Management, which recently appeared in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology, 2007 April, Volume 13, Number 2, pages 102-109. I suggest you share your observation and the above citation with your daughter's physician.
Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia may be that to some extent (considered a diagnosis when doctors run out of ideas), but in order to definitively diagnose you with fibromyalgia, you have to have a minimum of a certain number of positive trigger/tender points to test positive for that painful condition (I have two sibling diagnosed with it). There are many causes of fever and low grade fever (see private message) and if what you've listed is all they checked on, they were not thorough by any means.
Avatar n tn Pain with skin and pressure points can indeed be a sign of fibromyalgia. Please stop back and give us an update.
Avatar f tn My ligaments were large and arthritic and wrapped around things so he had to take them down a bit. He said that arthritic ligaments can be a sign of fibromyalgia(?). So if I still have pain I will get that checked out. Not one headache yet! My tinnitus is almost gone! My neck is stiff and very sore, but they don't want me to do much more than movements I can tolerate until the staples are out (9 more days). So I consider it a success at tis point.
Avatar m tn I have a friend who is diagnosed (several years) with Fibromyalgia. She recently had an endoscopy procedure, came home (I was designated to watch her due to the drugs would cause temporary amnesia) and was suffering neck pain that she placed a pack of ice on and slept for a couple hours. I helped her when she awoke with some breathing excercises, laying on her back and stretching the neck muscles out. This lasted about 45 minutes.
Avatar f tn my hubby suffers from chronic hives. I suffer from acute fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Could there be a link in these problems?

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.
1311475 tn?1274198780 this is probably something else the doctor will say I don't have, like high blood pressure, withdrawal symtoms. This is why I don't like doctors. oh nevermind it's probably constipation. Take a laxative and call me in the morning. WTF!
Avatar f tn Fibromyalgia started when withdrawal symptoms of steroids began on 4/14/08.

587071 tn?1218542387 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.I just have a feeling that there is more going on with me.Some days I'm so scared because my body hurts so bad and I cant do any thing for it.

Avatar f tn Diagnosis placed on medical file. Referred to specialist and pain clinic. I had to point it out to her but she accepted that I was right which helps her as well. Not all GP's are knowledgable about Hepc and the fibro connection, why should they...the government doesn't want to acknowledge the wider issue of disability, especially if the medical profession has caused your condition.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 10 years ago. About one year ago, after all of my cancer treatments were finished; I began to experience the muscle pain and chronic fatigue again in a big way. I have not been able to shake it. I have changed my diet. No soft drinks, no artificial sweeteners, and, a vitamin/anti-oxidant juice every day. I also excersize 3 to 5 days a week. Nothing is helping!

771990 tn?1341779376 Today was more about the Fibromyalgia pain in my upper back and spasms down my arm. This is the most aggravating pain. Its almost as if it burns. On top of all of that all day is a cold I am trying to come down with and I always worry because of the COPD I have and the asthma. Been taking that strong prescription cough medicine that helps with rest but with everything elese I am taking for pain I hope the mix is ok.
3202069 tn?1345404482 I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 yrs maybe longer. It is very hard to deal with. My legs bother me alot. I am on pain meds and eating certain foods make it worse. I go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain.
Avatar n tn Wondering if my muscle tightness and pain is a symptom of fibromyalgia. My lower back hurt this morning and night, my back, neck, and shoulders are still all balled up.

Complaints of fatigue and joint pains are,unfortunately, very common. fibromyalgia, a condition characterized by muscular aches and pains, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping. It is much more common in women, and it can be debilitating. Many conventional medical doctors do not think that fibromyalgia exists.
