    Appetite loss with weight gain

    I was diagnosed with FM in 2004. A few years later, along with other symptoms, I began to mysteriously gain weight even though I was doing nothing different. For the last few years I've lost my appetite. I'm never hungry, don't eat much, but I don't lose weight. I even continue to gradually gain. I take Klonopin and Tramadol for the FM and have for several years. Anyone else have a similar situation? Any suggestions about what to do?

    RE: Appetite loss with weight gain

    Yes! I know what you are experiencing. I was diagnosed in 2006, by 2008 had put on 10lbs. I have since added another 40lbs! I made drastic lifestyle changes in my diet, adopted a rescue dog that I walk daily (1-2 miles, rain or shine) in 2011, initially lost 10lbs then gained 15lbs.
    I am at a loss for idea's and I had been a perfect size 8 all of my adult life (except when pregnant) and now weigh more than I did when 9 months pregnant.
    I am unable to take Lyrica or Cimbalta medication due to allergies, so my Doctor prescribes Naproxen & an opioid for the past 10 years.
    This is the first time I've ever seen this message board, I hope we all can help and support each other, for this is the most debilitating condition you can have that affects every aspect of your life.

        Hi, sueprize. See my response to the above post. I'd like to see if I could help you guys out. It's an all natural beverage that you mix with 8-10oz of water. I started taking it recently to replace coffee and have had positive effects from it. Please let me know if you would like more information.

    Hi, gomeznoles. I don't actually have FM but I have recently starting taking an all natural beverage that has had past success with individuals with FM. Of course, it's different for all cases but if you would like some more information, just let me know and I'll be glad to help out anyway I can.
