Avatar n tn The tenderness in these points is worse in the mornings and has been described as flu-like, burning, throbbing, aching, or stabbing. Please correlate your symptoms to the classic findings of Fibromyalgia. Although there is no cure for fibromyalgia, home treatment can relieve some of the symptoms. Fibromyalgia pain is muscle pain and the most important therapy for muscle pain is regular, gentle and low-impact exercise.

1023657 tn?1251848541 Hi, How are you? I am sorry to know that you are suffering from Fibromyalgia for 15 yrs. It is sad but true that the origins and causes of Fibromyalgia Syndrome are unknown. There have been many suggestions regarding the cause but a definite cause is still not known. Some studies show that reduced blood circulation into the muscle cells causes damage to the energy producing mechanism, which causes the deficiency of energy in muscle tissue.
Avatar f tn I have been treated for fibromyalgia for over a year now. The dr. never really stated I have fibro. I'm being treated for high cholesterol and trigylcerides. I'm taking welchol powder once a day and trilipex for this. I'm taking lyrica 150mg. bid and mirapex at bedtime. I went to get a lab slip yesterday for blood work and was informed i needed to be fasting for my cholesterol and trigy. levels.I have never been told this before. When I first started with this dr.
1069644 tn?1276932463 While taking the diclofenac taking an enzyme with it will help protect your stomach. There are other medications for FM like mirapex,even celebrex but all come with side effects so discuss with your doctor and look up side effects. Another thing that works for me and I talk a lot about is what you eat, drink. Foods really affect pain. I learned that the hard way. Sugars, bad carbs, white potatoes, white rice should all be considered.
230948 tn?1235847929 My doc sent me to a rheumatologist and he ruled out Lupus, MS and Arthritis and told me I had fibromyalgia. I was put on Mirapex and didn't do well on that at all. That's one of those dopamine drugs. I don't do well on those either. So fibromyalgia came after lumbar surgery that went well. I had suffered with FM for many years then: Between 2003 and 2006 as a result of 2 car accidents I had 5 surgeries on my spine, 2 of which were fusions.
932867 tn?1244599325 I am also taking Mirapex for the RLS (although its hard to tell how much is rls and just nerve spasms). I hope maybe this will help a little more its real hard to put down all the usefull infromation without writting a book lol ...
Avatar n tn See a Rhuematoligist doctor to get checked for fibromyalgia. Tell the doc all your newest symptoms whether you think they are related or not, everything you can tell the doc is important,write a journel while you wait to be seen. I take Mirapex for Periodic limb movements at bedtime-also I take clorazepan(SP?) for restless leg syndrome. What you have usually is connected to Fibromyalgia. I have it all.
Avatar f tn I have RLS....it's He**. Your right about that.... the medical drug for RLS is called Mirapex....it helps me when it's severe....on ok days I take a natural herb called Calm tabs, about 3 tablets.... hope this helps and never hurts to go see a nuerologist.....
462570 tn?1273636577 TrayCee: Why WOULDNT it be? If the nuerotransmitters are not functioning correctly in your brain then it causes all the things that Tuck mentioned. Chronic pain is treated with antidepressants and narcotics and other stabilizing meds - SO that would be a good indication that if you can target the correct transmitter then you may beable to figure out what causes fibromyalgia. Tuck: I'm aware of everything you mentioned - I will disagree with you on the "years of education" thing.
456090 tn?1259698437 David Arnold who just glanced at one of my MRI xrays and he says nothing to worry about you have Fibromyalgia. I said I have concern in regards to the bulging disc and the bones pinching on my nerves. He proceeded to tell my what Dr. Adam Lamey (chiropractor) said to me was all a lie. In my mind I was like how unprofessional are you to say that about another doctor and "no" Dr. Lamey did not lie because he read the preliminary diagnostic report which was done by Dr. Tarun Pandey.
574118 tn?1305138884 My husband was taking Mirapex as well for his fibro and he had to stop because it made him feel manic, and he's not bipolar. So I can't speak for the seratonin, but the dopamine can definitely make someone manic.
195469 tn?1388326488 My Fibromyalgia Nurse Practitioner just switched me to Mirapex to see if it will work better. I can't take most pain meds and I avoid the others unless pain is a 10. My biggest problem is sleeping, because when I don't sleep the fibro and neck pain are far worse the next day. I have to work and just hope the Mirapex will do the job on the RLS. I will continue the Lorazepam too as it has some benefits for both RLS and sleep.
Avatar f tn I'm a 51 year old female who has been dealing with Fibromyalgia for 15 years without a whole lot of success. I also have a lot of problems with restless leg syndrome which is not limited to the evening hours in my case. A few years ago, I was diagnosed as having a Borderline Personality Disorder. I was told that the only successful way of treating it was to attend DBT training for 3 hours each week. No other treatment was ever discussed with me.
Avatar f tn I don't know what is wrong. I weened myself off all my medications except for the mirapex and there is no change. I just need an opinion on what kind of specialist I should go to, the general neurologist is not good enough. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I take tramodol for fibromyalgia pain and effexor for depression associated with menopause.
230948 tn?1235847929 Well there are forums for pain management and fibromyalgia. As I am not specifically familiar with these disabilities personally I could not say more but just post there and I'm sure people are more familiar with these experiences personally. I am an advocate for people with disabilities so I might suggest you apply for a home attendant to have help with some of what you can't do and some self sufficiency so if you need any suggestions on that I could offer you some advice.
Avatar f tn I've had fibromyalgia since 1992. I remember when they said I had it. I said "ok what now." it's been a life long process of trial and error. And we are all very different. I am sitting here right now with my Tens unit on my neck. If you have not heard of those look that up on the internet. They use the commercial version in physical therapy. IT really helps. It's like electrical stimulation. It is small electrodes that are sticky that you place on the area of pain.
689327 tn?1240232764 I take Celebrex, Cymbalta, and Lyrica for these conditions...also Baclofen (muscle relaxant) for other spinal injuries. Am fused L-3 to S-1. Last night (early this morning), my husband reminded me that compression hose helps, so I put one on....did help enough to get some sleep. I am now wondering if it might be RLS. Guess I will try a rheumatologist again, and see what they say. It does help to read other tales....maybe I am not really crazy.
Avatar n tn My prescriptions follow (N) for Neurologist pescribed, (GP) for General Physician, and (S) for Sleep Clinic. I am on 600 mg. of Neurontin 5xday (N), 1 mg. Mirapex 5xday (N), .5 mg. of Clonazepam 4xday (GP), 350 mg. of Soma (N), 65mg Darvon 3xday (N), Nexium (GP), Lasix (GP), K-dur (GP), lipitor (GP), lamictal (GP), wellbutrin (GP), naproxen (GP), and Nuvigil (S), and I think that's it. I see my neurologist on Tuesday.
Avatar f tn I have RLS/PLMD. Took Mirapex for several years, now on Requip. The meds have not cured me, but they do give me significant periods of time where I can get decent sleep and feel more rested. I also have sleep apnea, but the sleep studies didn't pick it up for several years because my legs moved so often I rarely slept enough for it to show up. The meds do have side effects in some, so do your homework. I think the sleep study is a good idea.
664777 tn?1231985276 I'm not going to say that he is perfect but he is willing to try new treatments as long as he feels they are medically sound. Thank God that the Mayo Clinic put out a study reporting Mirapex ,a drug used for the treatment of Parkinsons Disease to be helpful in the treatment of Fibromyalgia pain My husband printed the article and I took it to him. He researched it and decided that he was fine with trying it if it would help relieve my pain.
Avatar n tn For the past month I have been experiencing muscle twitches in my calves. They come and go, but I do experience them many hours a day, whether I am sitting or standing or laying down. I also experience muscle stiffness and cramping in my right calf and, as of today, also in my left leg and calf. I have been told by my primary care doctor and my neurologist that I have benign fasciculations and not ALS based on bloodwork, physical exams and symptoms.
Avatar n tn they have put me on zoloft which has caused nothing but problems,i am on lortabs, methadone all for pain, mirapex also for pain or RLS, nothing really seems to work well, and i was reading some of the comments made here about b12 defieciney and it looks like getting shots or something like that might be benifical. i cant sleep at night and if i do its only for a few minutes at a time, so i might get 1 or 2 hours a night if im lucky.
Avatar n tn who's taking these symptoms seriously. I'm also on Inderal LA 60mg, Mirapex (for Restless Leg Syndrome) and Synthroid (for hypothyroidism). So my question is about the hot flashes and can I have 3 autoimmune diseases at once...LUPUS /RA/SJORGEN together???
429209 tn?1224170189 wow thats a large dose, i take it when i really need it , its not for long term anxiety, klonopin is a great med for long term, ativan is just for short term to help you get through rough day. are you taking everyday for long time, your body will get used to it and want more and more as the klonopin does not do that. when am really in need of a ativan i take .05 , it gets me through it and am good to go. talk to your dr if you need long term there are better meds for that good luck.
Avatar f tn She sent me to a Rheumy who tested for Eppstein Barr, Rheumatroid arthritus, Lupus and Lyme. In flusteration he said I have Fibromyalgia. He took me off the Mirapex I had been taking for a couple of years for RLS. He put me on Klonopan, that did nothing "good" for me. Now, I have to go back a few years. When I was 15 years old I was ejected out of a jeep and received a TBI. I have no other issues from it other than occasional jerks. Anyway.....
Avatar n tn i am on methadone, mirapex, and topamax(for tremors) and lortab for pain. they dont work well,but they help some. I am thinking about going to the mayo clinic to try to find a doctor who might know something. any suggestions would be helpful.
Avatar n tn Im sure alot of you can relate. Im on Wellbutrin,Mirapex,oxycontin,and Perks for my breakthrew pain. I recently found my way out of the black hole.It took years and it wasn't easy. Its One day at a time and alot of help from your family and friends. One day day I was watching OPRAH and I had a light bulb moment. They where saying, Do what you enjoy doing. Well for years I havent worked I just didnt have the energy or didnt feel well. Three months ago I started a small Com.
Cat I have been on citalopram for several years, and have not had many side effects until now. The symptoms are bad enough to interrupt my sleep.
