I recently had to switch my Rheumatologist because Dr. Janet Kromes is no longer practicing in my area.

How can I update this information on the Provider Directory? I don't have her new location I just know she's not in Langhorne, PA any longer.

Vitamin deficiencies??

Not a scientist or detective but ive spent a lot of time trying to understand my body (sadly through internet searches) and why I have autoimmune disorders and if things are linked together. Im just curious how many of you had some type of vitamin deficiencies before or leading up to diagnosis of fibro?

Has anyone been prescribed trazadone for fibromyalgia?

After much discussion, my doctor and I chose not to go the route of Cymbalta or Lyrica, but instead try trazadone (to combat fibro symptoms of weight gain, insomnia, constant headaches, and overall chronicpain.) The results have been amazing! Has anyone else tried this?

Sleep Study Report

I spent the night at one of the top sleep study clinics in the USA. The bottom line is that I am not reaching deep sleep and wake up often. I am not on any medications.

They told me absolutely no sleep medications as they ( and many fibro drugs) alter deep sleep and prevent human growth hormone formation that is critical for fibro recovery and stopping the pain.

They gave me a sheet of sleep hygiene recommendations and suggested stretching for 30 minutes before bed, meditation 2 to 3 times a… read more

Has anyone taken Dosulepin a prescription med for fibro pain? If you have, did it help the fibro pain?

I was on Nortriptyline and when my Dr increased the dose I got really bad migraines. He has now put me on Dosulepin, I have been on it for a week and have had no improvement with pain. The only thing it has changed is made me have a really really low mood. Not sure whether to stop it or keep on it for another week. I'm a bit nervous to stay on it as the side effects and low mood has me very worried. My partner has… read more

My pain is getting worse

My pain is getting worse. It's to the point, where I'm up for days with no sleep. My rheumatologist has tried different medication, and nothing is helping me. I bought a wii fit plus, cause my rheumatologist told me to do yoga. And it hasn't helped me. I've tried my tens unit, it don't help. I've tried a hot bath, no relief. Anyone have any suggestions for me, to help manage my pain? My rheumatologist only wants me to work, every other Friday and Saturday nights only. I don't know how… read more
