Memory problems?

I'm going thru terrible memory issues as of late. I went to the store and thought I had put my car in park but I got out an watched my car starting to roll. Thankfully I was able to hop back in and truly put it in park! I was so mad with myself about it. I go places and forget where I even park. I literally wander the parking lot trying to track down my car. I have to write reminder notes or tell other's to remind me of something or I'll forget. I'm only 30 years old and feel more like I'm much… read more

Does anyone else get severe muscle spasms with Fibro?

I was diagnosed with Fibro in 1992, I get severe muscle spasms in my ankles, my feet, my hands. sides, upper back of the arms and in my upper inner thighs and back of the calf. Sometimes multiple places at once. When I start to yell, my family starts running, one heats up my heating pad, one grabs me a bottle of water, I grab my anti-spasmatic Xanax and another grabs the apple vinegar bottle. I apply the heat to the area, I drink the water & take the pill,… read more

Does anyone get exhausted and depressed after a simple outing?

Hi Everyone,

For years when I come home after being out I find myself sitting in my car for about an hour or more unable to move feeling exhausted and down. For a long time I thought it had to do with my PTSD but tonight I think it is due to fibro fog and fatigue??
Can anyone relate? Thank you in advance!

Cold Sores

Let's talk cold sores and mouth ulcers.

Who gets them, how often?

Have you mentioned it to your rheumy or doctor and what's their verdict?

I get them often, today in have a beastie growing in the corner of my mouth and on the side of my tongue I can feel an ulcer coming.

But I get the absolute worst on or around my lower lip line.

Who else experiences this. None of the OT stuff works and for the ulcers I just swish with salt water.

So I'm interested to know who else gets this?

Sleep study reassurance? treatment options?

I'm being sent for one, new doc while my regular one - who wasn't helping anymore just pat on the head try mindfulness, prescribes whatever I asked for and get out of my office - he believes that the reason my antidepressants aren't working well enough and possibly other symptoms, could be related to sleep problems. I guess to sleep apnea.

I'm nervous about the study. I'm told it's easy and painless, so it isn't that. I am positive they are going to give me heck about… read more

Can you have complex regional pain syndrome and FMS?

I'm feeling so exhausted! I have yet another appointment with the neurologist tomorrow. I am sure she thinks I have lost my mind but I am sure many of you on this site can agree that FMS is a hard diagnosis to accept because A.) doctors don't really like to tell you that you have it until EVERYTHING under the sun has been ruled out, B.) A lot of doctors don't really treat it so if they don't treat it, then they don't care to learn about it and C.) As we've all… read more

Ibs relief?

Hi all, wondered if any of you found any IBS treatment that helps you? I take buscipan, sillicol, Imodium on a daily basis and I’m still in pain and rushing to the loo most days. Amitriptyline helped (like a miracle cure) but one day a couple months ago it just stopped working.

Hi does anyone get stomach cramp after eating curry.

I know its an odd question but since taking so any meds I am struggling to find foods that don't affect my stomach. I'm a big curry person and never had any problem in the past but since being on gabapentin I'm unable to eat them without giving me chronic pain in my stomach. It's same with hot drinks too, can only manage warmish drinks now
