Mosquito bites

Mosquito bites

Anyone else feel crazy when you get mosquito bites? I know they can be bad for anyone but I am curious if Fibro makes the inflammation from the bite worse. Mine always swell up real big and I wake up every two hours at night wanting to scream. Can anyone explain if and why there might be a link with Fibro?

You maybe allergic to mosquitoes or gnats. My grandmother and my brother are. They have serious amounts of swelling with their bites. Unusual amounts.

I have been told to wean from one medication to ready myself for the new one but not the time span. Would you wean by week or a few days?

I have been told to wean from one medication to ready myself for the new one but not the time span. Would you wean by week or a few days?

I ask due to intensity of symptoms and My dr did not know as my specialist nurse had not written down a blow by blow for them. I would really rather not be doing this for a long period. What would you guys do?

Can arrhythmia be caused by Fibro?

Can arrhythmia be caused by Fibro?

Hello all. After dealing with pain for a few years, my doctor thinking maybe it was Fibro. They wanted me to go on Cymbalta and see if it helped. I decided to try and treat it myself first with CBD oil prescribed through a Dr I was referred to. It was helping with the pain, but I was still finding myself really tired all of the time.

Anyone have a spinal fusion after fibromyalgia diagnosis?

Anyone have a spinal fusion after fibromyalgia diagnosis?

My disc is a mess. But I'm terrified of the fibro flare that will follow and the possibility it won't work. Any information would be greatly appreciated. I have 2 weeks to figure out my life. I'm scared the pain will increase and surgery won't provide significant improvement.
