    Does this sound like fibromyalgia?

    For the past 8 or 9 years I've seen many doctors and was even diagnosed with fibromyalgia by one, although at the time I rejected that explanation because I didn't think I had enough of the symptoms and I felt like the doctor just wanted to get rid of me, but I'm starting to give it more thought. Over the years I've only gotten worse, though most of my alarming symptoms are tendon-related. I've had tendonitis treated in both elbows, both knees, both ankles and lower back. I've....

    Exercising with Fibromyalgia

    I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia after my 5th child was born. I believe it developed due to stress. I had been diagnosed with Tinnitus, Meniere's and Post Natal depression. Having a new baby in the house was probably the final straw. He is 18 now and with all the medications I have been taking and the comfort eating, I gained 40kgs. I had injured myself at work and was off for 2 months. My doctor suggested I start taking something for the Fibromyalgia pain, which till now I was not doing. He....

    I was diagnosed with FMS in 1984. I finally found a protocol that works for me and several thousand other people.

    I found Dr. Paul St. Amand's FMS protocol in 1998. I had my first good day six months later. I got progressively better until the pain, tiredness and sleeplessness finally went away. You can find the information on the web. Just search for "Dr. Paul St. Amand" and the web site will come up.

    Is this all fibromyalgia

    I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia maybe 8 yrs ago. The dr tested my tender points and dx came immediately. I was hurting but things were not that bad. I was still moving. I was nearing 60, am fat but still able to move. Was doing farm chores, lifting hay bales, 50# bags of feed and walking a mile 3x a week. Then things started going down hill. There was stiffness and bad muscle pain. My new doctor ( we had changed by then) gave me generic Cymbalta, which pretty much took care of the aching except....

    Preparing for vaccines

    I'm new here. My daughter was diagnosed last year with Fibromyalgia and Chronic pain after 5 years of investigating and medical tests. She is 16 yeaes old. I'm trying to encourage her to stay as active as possible and not let these diagnoses become here identity. It's hard for me not knowing when I'm being supportive and when I'm nagging. I really have no idea what she is going through, but when she stops her activities she gets severly depressed. She is going to Mexico in March....
  • History of estrogen use and fibro

    Today I read that FM is the result of having your brain's pain messaging system rewired due to a repetitive stimulator. I took synthetic estrogen from age 30 to age 56 due to hysterectomy for endometriosis. I hardly slept more than a few hours every night due to the overstimulation of that drug. I have finally come upon something that begins to explain the cause of this maddening disease for me. I was diagnosed with FM over 20 years ago. I am just wondering if anyone else shares this experience....

    Pins and Needles

    Hi, i'm new so forgive if y'all have discussed all this before. But I am wondering about pins and needles. Does anyone here have constant pins and needles in their arms, shoulders, chest, back, stomach, legs and saddle area. The only time they are not there sometimes is when I wake up. But as soon as I get up they start. They will usually get worse as the day progresses. Sometimes they are just like pins and needles and then sometimes they get so intense they sting. The stinging will cause....
