    Itching with fibromyalgia

    I too was diagnosed 35+ years ago. Have had the itchiness people talk about. Went to rhuematalogist and dermatologist and endo but no one could figure out why. Guess it's just one of those things. However endo keeps suggesting gluten intolerance. Anyone else had this suggestion?

    Fibromyalgia help.

    I have severe pain from both Fibromyalgia and arthritis. My Rheumatologist has me taking Salsalate, which is a low dose anti inflammatory. In addition I use cannibus salve and take Norco when necessary. I am a senior & have other issues such as Emphysema & Pancreatitis, just to mention a few. My mornings are nearly unbearable, as I'm sure most of yours are. My other 'medicine' is dressing nice with makeup and nice hair. Surprisingly, it boosts my self esteem & I feel better....

    Hello everyone! So, I’ve been experiencing some symptoms for quite some time that can resemble a number of posibilities. A friend who has fibro thinks it’s auto immune.

    Common Cold + Fibro

    So I have had this happen in the past and I want to know if anyone else has experienced similar symptoms. Whenever I get a cold, due to my Fibro, I always get severely shaky and nauseous during the night. It never happens during the day time, only when I'm trying to sleep. It's like my body realizes it's relaxed and wants to enter a state of panic. I get severe shakes in my core and through my chest and my upper thighs (tops of legs) and it doesn't let me sleep. I got an hour of sleep....

She has been in car accidents and got ran over by drunk driver when 7 months pregnant. So she has pain all the time too. But my biggest fear is the baby ( now 11 yrs old) will....
