Has anyone used Norflex before? My doctor just prescribed it to me, but I haven't taken it yet. Does it make you drowsy? Any side effects?

Flexeril, Tinnitus, And Trade Offs?

Flexeril, Tinnitus, And Trade Offs?

Hello all! I am new here. I was diagnosed with fibro about 16 years ago now, but right around the start of this new year, it got really bad again.

The neurologist I saw also diagnosed me with dystonia in the neck, which I understand to be a… read more

Cause Of Fibro?

Cause Of Fibro?

When I think about it, I think I have had fibro all my life. I was diagnosed with osteo in my hips when I was 20, and my spine when I was 47. I cannot walk further than 20m, I cannot stand longer than 3 minutes. My back gets so painful that I start panting. I have always though had extremely sensitive skin and scalp. when my Rheumatologist did the Fibro physical test I almost levitated I was in so much pain.

My question is this though, what causes it? Physical and mental trauma? Link to thyroid?
