    Could this be fibromyalgia?

    For the past month or so, I've been having a very sudden bunch of physical and mental symptoms that seem to have come out of nowhere. It started with sudden anxiety attacks and elevated stress, even though I've never had any symptoms of that before. Now, I'm no longer suffering from anxiety or stress, but I'm still having symptoms. I have very mild chest pains from time to time, I've been having a pulsing or beating feeling in certain parts of my body, and very recently I've....

    Restless Legs!

    I'm 22 and I've had fibromyalgia for about 5 years now. I was diagnosed by a rheumatologist and see pain specialists. I used to be be on various doses of Gabapentin over the years but what I've found that works for me is Lyrica 200mg twice a day. I never had issues with my feet/legs until the past few months. I constantly need to tense all the muscles in my feet and legs or I'll get this horrible tingling sensation. It happens all the time when I'm not moving and disrupts my daily....

    Re: Tapering off Dilaudid

    Need advice. My doctor retired and didn't tell me so I could plan ahead. His treatment plan worked for the Fibro and Interstitial Cystitis but his partner took over his cases and his treatment plan is not the same. This new doctor cut the Dilaudid down to 4 mg a day from 8 mg 4 times a day and I missed work because of it. I have been reading online that a doctor should taper it and I want to know if this is true and do I have a case for legal action against both doctors?

    New fibro treatment?

    I was wondering if anyone else has tried Fit Sticks for their fibro and if it works for them? I started using September 1st and I have darn near zero fibro pain now! They are loaded with vitamins and garcinia something. I can't remember that name! Thank you fibro fog! My typical days before taking this was spent in unbelievable pain and burning all over. It felt like all the pain nerves in my back was radiating a burning pain all over my body. We have all tried the diff meds they but us on that....

    Fibromyalgia help

    The thing that worked the most for me was increasing my serotonin level. This is done by taking anti-depressants like Prozac or it's equivalent, and exercise. Moist heat like hot showers and stretching helps too.
