fibromyalgia

Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia. But also my doctor said that my vitamin D level was low so she put me on 50,000 units of it. I was wondering could my vitamin D level being low have anything to do with my fatigue and flu-like feeling? What are the usual symptoms of vitamin D level being low????

Avatar f tn Does anyone who has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia know of the best medication to take to help relieve the discomfort associated with this disease?
Avatar m tn I have been told for 3 years I have Fibromyalgia along with osteoarthritis in many areas; osteoporosis (I have lost 2 and l/2 inches in 3 years; fracture mode; every medicine I had been put on has been problems and I have been taken off all for Fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, and arthritis. Now, my right eye is getting fuzzy, not every day, but more days all the time. My doctor has said although I need back surgery, be careful doing that because it will possibly make your fibromyalgia worse.
Avatar f tn I'm new here and I haven't had a fibromyalgia diagnosis, but I have had muscle twitching all over (mostly in my legs) and that has died down quite a bit, but I've have tired muscles and I have been so tired. I get tender spots that hurt for no reason to the touch. This past Saturday I went dancing and almost didn't make it through the first song, my legs started to hurt so bad. I woke up the next morning and it felt like someone had beat my legs with a baseball bat.
Avatar f tn I have Fibromyalgia, I would like to know which vitamins I should use for this desease and what would me help me get more energy. Fatigue is part of Fibro.
Avatar n tn I'm going to guess it's either something changed in your environment or something in your intake (vitamins, foods) unwittingly. I also remember getting a swelling and hard to walk problem when I started OPC (grape seed extract). The stuff's supposed to improve vein structure and help a lot in some people with the dysautonomia problems. I've thought maybe it strengthed the vein walls but all that blood pooling now didn't have stretched out veins to go into?
675329 tn?1297291978 I'm sorry to say I have heard of Topamax-simply no place in Fibromyalgia treatment from every report I've heard, read, seen and made from personal experience. It cripples every mind that I've learned about. And I can't believe you're on Serequel and Buspar and Wellbutrin. Frankly your doctor must see a serious mental annomally that he's treating. I'm not wanting to be offensive.
Avatar n tn I am a 22 year old female and after doing a bit of research it sounds as though I have several symptoms that occur under fibromyalgia. I have had throughout my entire life a bizarre amount of muscle problems and pain. In recent times (last 5-6 months) I have had occasions where my body and skin hurts so much that even my shirt is hurting it. This isn't an everyday, or even every week, event but it has happened probably 5 or 6 time.

I find it hard to do all my daily things to the point that it hurts to peel potatoes what kind of help can I get for this as it is all new to me.

Avatar f tn also all of my mucles ache(almost feels as if the bones hurt) all over my body, especially my legs. Can one have Fibromyalgia and, at the same time, be clear headed? Thank you in advance for your time.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am wondering if fibromyalgia can be missed for years before being diagnosed? When I was a kid up until now I have always had muscle pain. Charlie horses, cramps, tingling in my feet & swelling. No doctor ever said anything to my parents or me. Now I'm 34 haven't been able to work for the last 4 wks due to muscle pain, cramps so bad I'm unable to walk, confusion so bad it interfered with my work, my immune system is basically null & void.
5682570 tn?1372290919 1. Low iron, low potassium, low magnesium, low B vitamins. Need to be tested for nutritional and mineral deficiencies (CBC) and tissue analysis for minerals. 2. Stress levels. 3. Fungal overgrowth/candida. You may do a preliminary self-test. Just do a YouTube search for "saliva test for candida" Very simple and fast. 4. Thyroid issues or iodine deficiency causing thyroid dysfunction.
806806 tn?1239516614 I've been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue and a pituitary microadenoma. Oh yea, depression too. I feel like **** at least 90% of my days. I get overwhelmed very easily, any stress to me can put me down for the day. Stress to me lately can be the phone ringing too much or traffic etc. Is there anyone with any advice on what to check or questions to ask. I'm wasting away.
Avatar f tn This is called ACES therapy and is a very good combination of vitamins and nutrients. Vitamins A, C and E are called antioxidants. They are useful to combat free- radical damage at the cellular level. Vitamin E, in particular, improves circulation and reduces muscle pain. Hope this helps you . Take care and regards !
1770280 tn?1314588560 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome back in the mid 1990's and was given amitriptyline for it a few years later. I went on a vitamin and supplement regimen which kept the pain to a tolerable level for four or five years. Then I started with Elavil/amitrip for about five years before that wasn't working too well and I was placed on Effexor XR. NOT a good drug.
Avatar m tn Wide spread body pain is manifested in many conditions like neck pain syndrome, low back pain, local tendonitis, trauma-related pain syndromes, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, osteoarthritis of the knee or hand, and other painful disorders. These patients have some symptoms that mimic fibromyalgia.
Avatar n tn I have both. I am on neurotin and Percocet meds. They help but not completely, I am taking B complex vitamins along with a regular multiple vitamins. For my arthritis I will use muscular rub on meds"..this on my back. My quality of life is poor. I have some times I my get burst of energy. It pushing though ...
Avatar n tn Lots of people with fibromyalgia report numbness and tingling like feelings and I saw where the B vitamins have helped them. I used to take alot of vitamins but as I began other programs I limitted what I took so that my clinical picture was more clear. I also read where most people have a normal blood level of B-12 and folate but the vitamin, whether oral, or sl or inj. really helped. I knda figured whether my levels were normal or abnormal, the B-12 couldn't hurt since it's water sol.

1692515 tn?1306273648 I have been told my mother that at 2 years old I put a bobbie pin in an electrical outlet and she had to get a mop to dislodge me. My question is could my fibromyalgia, reoccuring shingles, and electric shock feeling be caused by this and what can be done to stop it.
1534024 tn?1294249675 One time I got a virus and I was put in the hospital for 4 days because every time I would get out of bed or move around my heart rate would go up to like 180 and I also felt really weak and tired, the doctors did all the tests in the world and couldn't figure out what it was, they said it was possibly just a bad virus. Thankfully that went away. I've recently had my thyroid, blood sugar, cholesterol, vitamins, and electrolytes tested and everything came back normal.
Avatar m tn -Aches and pains basically on entire body; worst in the neck, shoulders, back, arms, thighs, and lower legs -Some pain on almost all joints, feels more when I move my joints. -My joints feel they are missing some lubrication, they make cracking sounds when I move them -Burning sensation on feet when I walk and hands especially during the night.
573297 tn?1304712740 Hello I was diagnosed with bi polar when I was 23 the prob is if your diet is bad you can experience symptoms of bi polar bc of a lack of certain vitamins and minerals also its genetic you are either born with it or your not. With fibromyalgia you can acquire this syndrome at any age and once you have it you have it forever. No one can make someone understand the pain fibromyalgia brings.
Avatar f tn I was just diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, I have some osteoarthritis and have had a hip replacement 4 yrs ago, in the last year I have becomed very fatigued, muscle pain especially in arms, shoulder area, hands and feet, I have very little energy to go to gym anymore, I heard that 50% of people with fibromyalgia also have low thyroid, even though my thyroid test shows normal, could thyroid medication help?
Avatar f tn I am undecided about whether taking vitamins or supplements hurt more than help with the hep c. I know we do not need to stress the liver. I was thinking the less it had to filter the better. But I was told I had a low vitamin D level and I do have Fibromyalgia. Should I take vitamin D and the antioxidants they say help fibro? Or should I Iet things be? It is hard to get ALL your vitamin and supplements from food, especially daily.
