  • Severe menstrual cramping with Fibromyalgia.

    Hi everyone. I'm new to the community, and really hope someone can help me on this subject because I can't take this pain anymore. 2 years I started to have really bad pain when it came time to ovulate and would stop after my period ended. Everything I was able to research had me thinking I had endometriosis. I went to my gyno and told them what was going on and they did a bunch of tests plus a exploratory surgery to check for endo. Nothing came back. I was told it was probably IBS. Now,....

    Advise would be greatly appreciated

    So for the past 4 years or so I've been feeling aches and pains in my body and random bursts of pain, which seemed to only get worse and worse as I grew older. I'm now to the point that it's sometimes hard to get out of bed, my face swells, i have horrible headaches, im sore all over no matter what, and always in pain. If I bend my legs for a good 2 mins or so sitting down its even more sore. I'm currently 18 and have been feeling this way since I was 14. I'm now in university....

    Interaction between Lyrica and Adderall

    I have been taking 100mg of Lyrica 3 times a day for several years now. I’ve never had any side effects. In fact I wouldn’t even know I was taking it except for the fact that I swallow a pill 3xs a day and it’s been working WONDERS. Last week my Psych prescribed me 10mg of Adderall XR once a day. I’m very careful to check all interactions when I’m prescribed a drug. If it will interact with Lyrica I won’t take it. Lyrica is the only thing that has worked this well and I will not give it up. Long....

    Roommate anyone?

    Hi, my name is Susan. I am new to this board, but not new to Fibro. I have CFS since 1987 and Fibro since 1994. I was 27 when I became ill with Fibro and went on permanent disability. Since I was relatively young when I went on disability I get a decent amount a month but not enough to live alone. Am living with family right now but I am looking to see if anyone needs a roommate to split living costs. My family don't believe I am really ill. They never have. They say I'm on vacation. I know....

    calves are burning

    I could barely get out of bed & walk the other day because of my calves. I've exercised on/off my entire life so I know what sore calves feel like. BUT I haven't exercised in over a month, so I honestly couldn't understand what I had done because it felt like I had run a marathon or started an exercise program like bootcamp, both leave you with sore calves & thighs. Today marks day 4 of the same pain and I'm stumped to understand the cause. It was this morning that I began....

    Low on spoons..

    Today I'm running on only a few spoons. Tying my shoes and putting my hair up was exhausting. Explaining to my husband how I feel today made me feel like a burden. I have had fibromyalgia for 10 years but only got an official diagnosis 16 months ago, because of my age. I'm 36. I thought I was just getting older lol. I have become well versed in fibromyalgia and run support groups in and around my hometown. If anyone has and questions or concerns feel free to ask me anytime. Chances are I....

    Fibro Symptoms

    Hello Everyone, New here. I'm starting to lose it emotionally and I'm reaching out to see if my thinking could be correct. I was diagnosed about 5 years ago when I went for a pain injection for back pain. I cannot take most of the prescription drugs due to allergic reactions. Pretty much just norco for pain and that is prescribed by my Orthopedic for degenerative disc disease. Lately, I am suffering from chronic UTI's and body aches like the flu. Fatigue, ha! My PCP diagnosed me with....
