A Question About Fibromyalgia Symptoms.

A Question About Fibromyalgia Symptoms.

Just wondering if Fibromyalgia symptoms include being unsteady on your feet and stumbling and tripping over your feet all the time, as if you can’t lift your feet high enough when you walk? Five weeks ago my neurologist took me off Sifrol and placed me on Paxam. Since then I trip over my feet because I can’t seem to lift them high enough and so I stumble. I also feel unsteady on my feet. Is this a Fibromyalgia symptom that maybe was being controlled by the Sifrol? Or is… read more

Can Anyone Relate To Onesided Pain Behind Eye And Around Eyebrow?

Can Anyone Relate To Onesided Pain Behind Eye And Around Eyebrow?

I don’t get this often. The last time was around November of last year and I have it again now. My eyebrow area is tender to touch and a pressure feeling behind eye. Just on the right side though. I’ve already had two MRIs, and multiple eye tests with everything coming back negative. Even tried a nerve block and different headache medication to see if that would help but nothing did. It finally went away after a few weeks but now it’s back.

Hi Guys I Was Diagnosed With FM In 2016.

At that time I was on a large dose of modified release Zomorph which was helpful in controlling my pain, however my GP has been lowering my dose each month and now I have lost my job with our NHS here in the UK. Can anyone advise me on what to do about this? Gentle hugs to you all. Xxx

Has Anyone Tried The Coimbra Protocol?

The Coimbra protocol is taking high levels of vitamin D and is seeing incredible results. There are other things you have to do as well but was wondering if anyone has tried it. I’ve seen people talking about it turning their lives around! Thanks for any info you have!

Does Anyone Have Breathing Difficulties When Lying Down?

Does Anyone Have Breathing Difficulties When Lying Down?

Sorry for another breathing question, but when I go to bed I feel like I’m struggling to breath, especially when I lay on my left side. I also feel like I try to take more deeper breaths in a day than is usual. Almost like I feel like I’m not getting adequate oxygen in. Has anyone else experienced this?

A MyFibroTeam Member said:

Yes, I cannot lay on my back. Something to do with the muscles and how they work with the extra weight
