I have horrible upper and lower body pains (as does everyone here right?), well, I went to pt a while ago to do some water exercises, mind you I never got that far because I lost my insurance. Anyhow, when the therapist was working with me she said: "You have a lot of strength", but the way she said it was as if having the strength means I don't have an issue. Well, I may have strength in my muscles but that is because I am using all of my strength to use them and it… read more
I was told by a chiropractor today that statin medications like Lipitor (which I take!) is most likely contributing to my joint pain. Has anyone else heard this?
I am currently weaning off of Amitriptyline. It did help my sleep but left me a bit groggy. I’ve found that a mild or sometimes a stronger muscle relaxer is needed for fibro and muscle, joint pain due to neck and spine issues to help pain so l can sleep.

It has been suggested that l try Cymbalta or Trazadone instead of Amitriptyline.

Does anyone get fairly constant tingling in their hands and feet? It is usually better when I first wake up but once I stand and sit it becomes triggered for the entire day.
I have taken over 40 medications and/or treatments over the last 10 years and the only thing that really helps are pain medication. I almost wish it didn’t because of all the stigma associated around them. Anyone else feel this?

If I’m near or in a room where someone is cooking I begin to itch and sting, not sure why or what’s going on. Mostly face and scalp but it’s so distressing, anyone have an idea why?
Itching and burning seems to be my most distressing symptom along with chemical sensitivity.
I wanted to pass this along. I continuously pray, as many of you, for help and direction to get well, feel better. Lately, the brain fog and crushing head pain have been off the charts. Truly debilitating. I took quercetin last year to help with bladder pains, which it did just that. So the last couple days, I started back taking quercetin twice a day. I also have been doing deep breathing exercises. My brain fog and head pressure have diminished enough in two days I can function… read more
I have worked out that I have it, not sure what causes it to appear for me, but I do get chest pains when I cough and shortness of breath. When I had it badly before my heart rate was crazy high. I read that it is related to Fibromyalgia.
I’ve been prescribed this by mental health, has anyone been on it?
Pretty scared to take it to be honest
How many of you think/ feel that somedays " Yeah I could work." But also wonder and think " What kind of work can I do?"
