fibromyalgia

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.
450257 tn?1268347217 I found this cold shower treatment on about.com. Sounds like it may be worth a try. Here is the link to this story and more info: http://chronicfatigue.about.com/ A Cold Shower - The Latest Treatment for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome? Thursday June 5, 2008 Forget all those cliches about taking a cold shower - some researchers think that could be a way to treat chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS or ME/CFS).
Avatar f tn I do not have Fibro but here are many here that do and will offer you good suggestions and information. There are 5 million ppl afflicted with Fibro. Alternative treatment for fibromyalgia include exercise (non-aerobic), nutrition, stress, massage, acupuncture, soft tissue manipulation, Pilate's and Yoga and those types of non traditional medicine are considered beneficial for some Fibro ppl.
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.
554442 tn?1221238825 Fibromyalgia (FMS or Fibro for short) is a chronic condition which causes widespread pain and fatigue as well as a variety of other symptoms. The name Fibromyalgia comes from "fibro" meaning fibrous tissues (such as tendons and ligaments), "my" meaning muscles, and "algia" meaning pain. Fibro does not cause joint pain or swelling. The pain from Fibromyalgia is produced in the soft tissues of the body, including the muscles and tendons. http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar n tn Since I've had Fibromyalgia, I have constant bursitis in my greater trocanter (hip bursa) as well as a constant inflammation of my SI joints. I receive shots in my hips every few months, sometimes monthly. I do the exercises given to me by my DO, however, I have only short term relief from the shots. I apply ice. I still have the bursitis and it won't go away. I never had any hip injuries prior or since to cause bursitis. Does anyone else have recurrent bursitis with their Fibromyalgia?
Avatar n tn Yoga does wonders for my fibromyalgia pain!
Avatar f tn Let me discuss your fibromyalgia, if you indulge me. Fibromyalgia has significant pain associated with it, however opiates are not a first line treatment for it, not should it be last. There are a slew of medications that should have been tried years ago and there are many new ones that have came out since that have proved very helpful for fibromyalgia.

Avatar n tn He said he was in the process of making me an appointment with a rhumatoid doctor. I beleive I do have fibromyalgia, because I have every single symptom times 100. The only thing is my hand and feet are very cold. Sometimes they will often turn differant colors. My doc says this is raynaud phenomenon and it goes along with fibro. Does it or could something else be going on? I don't know when my appt. is with the other doctor, so I'm jumping ahead of myself?
Avatar n tn I have alreasy gone thru treatment with interfuron for a year no help,now I have cronic fatigue plus all the pain of fibro,and the sides of hep c. Is there anyone out there I can talk to that understands what I am going thru? I can't get my husband to understand just because you can't see it it doesn't mean I don't hurt like hell. My life seems to have been put into a suspended form of torture.
Avatar n tn Earlier this year, my doctor ran all kinds of blood work, and said that everything looked fine. He thinks that I have Fibromyalgia (based on my tender spots). From what I have read, this is extremely rare for men to get. The muscle aches and pains are always worse in the morning and evenings and especially worse in cold weather. Recently, the doctor put me on Zanaflex, but that does not seem to help either.
Avatar n tn I have numerous symptoms and I was wondering if they all stem from being diagnosed 13 years ago with Fibromyalgia? One of my chief complaints is I get what I could describe as electrical shocks that start in my head and kind-of shoot through my body. They are very painful and seem to disappear with continued use of Lexapro (my dr. prescribed this for my fibro). However, I have other problems as well. I have severe allergies, in which my dr. has prescribed Zyrtec and Flonase.
Avatar n tn So, What can I do to relieve this numbness? I do stretches(yoga) just about every morning and some pilates for strength. I take whole food supplements, no caffiene, very little sugar. HELP....
Avatar f tn Also, you need to quit smoking if you want to have an effective treatment for your Fibromyalgia. Remember, Fibromyalgia is treatable without side effects but you need to find the right doctor and minimize all stresses.
Avatar f tn I was finally diagnosed this past September with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. After finding a great Dr. and working on a multi-facated treatment plan, I am not cured but functioning better than I have in two years. Because my diagnosis is recent, my name has not come up for deployment, and I have been able to muster through drill periods for the last two years, I have not yet disclosed this information to the Army National Guard.
Avatar n tn She did a few things in her office and said that i had Fibromyalgia(keep in mind that she never took blood at that point). She then gave me a prescription for OxyContin 20mgs three times a day and 15mgs of OxyCodone immmediate release for breakthrough pain. After that, she did some blood work and said everyhting was fine. to make a long story short, she upped my dosage to 40mgs of OxyContin three times daily and 30mgs of Oxycodone for breakthrough pain.
Avatar f tn I saw the rhumatologist today, and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. After a whole year of pain and searching, I have finally got an answer....i guess i was expecting to have a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.....not so, Im 28 years old, and will be in pain the rest of my life....
Avatar f tn I am a 34 year old woman with diagnosed fibromyalgia. I went through many different doctors, many tests, etc to get this awful diagnosis. I was diagnosed about 8 years ago. The diagnosis came after shortly after having Lyme Disease. I have tried many different therapies for relief, but nothing has worked for any length of time. For example, I have tried massage therapy in combination with a chiropractor, acupuncture, lyrica, yoga, etc. I don't want to be on pain meds my whole life.
937868 tn?1570331881 One important pain transmitter is substance P, which is elevated in the cerebrospinal fluid of people with fibromyalgia . Fibromyalgia is a complex disease that is influenced by multiple factors, including hormonal and psychological issues. For instance, the increased prevalence of fibromyalgia in women suggests a hormonal influence.
Avatar f tn New to this forum, I found it in search of finding out about post treatment issues. I just completed triple therapy with Interferon (Pegasys), Ribavarin, and Victrelis (Boceprevir) as of May 31st and am having severe joint stiffness in shoulder joints and some nerve twitches (?) in various other places. I wake up every morning and can hardly lift myself out of bed...takes a few hours to be able to raise my arms to do normal activities.
Avatar f tn Looking for help...I am 33 years old. I have Systemic Lupus and fibromyalgia. 3 years ago had a bad lupus flare and was put on 60mg of prednisone for a year and a half. After 2 mo on the prednisone I developed avascular necrosis in my knees, then hips. I had both my hips replaced, but they don't want to mess with my knees too at my age...Before all this happened (3 years ago) I was very active, walking, yoga, etc.
666152 tn?1225389158 I agree with Force, exercise has helped me more than anything. I'm 12 weeks post treatment. At times during treatment I was too weak to do more than walk to the bathroom, but I kept as active as the anemia would permit. Swimming was the easiest, That way I wasn't fighting gravity and did not have any joint-related pain. As soon as I finished treatment I resumed other exercise, starting with walking short distances and working my way up to a more vigorous program.
446049 tn?1538871187 Has anyone gone through this treatment for pain in the thoracic spine area? If so, would you be kind enough to describe the treatment(s) and how they helped? Thank you in advance.
446963 tn?1205333997 I've lived with this for seventeen years, it gets worse in the winter. Yoga helps. Warmth helps. I haven't had regular medical care but have had several doctors quickly call my joint pain fibromyalgia and send me on my way with whatever pain medication. I've also been spacey all my life, forgetful. Clumsy. I went to my GP to ask if I could have ADD. He prescribed Zoloft because I was still breastfeeding my 10 month old son and he said it would be safer.
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!
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
217229 tn?1192766004 right now -- not flying off the island just yet) - doesn't have a lot of knowledge about HCV, Fibromyalgia or Interferon TX --- connections. In trying to explain to him that I believe that the current pain I'm in is Fibro and I think that the TX I took may be the culprit --- I get a glassy eyed "sure hon" look. Here, take these pills --- call me in a week if you still feel uncomfortable. And he quotes that flu like symptoms and the other "MILD" symptoms should now be gone.
