I have finally seen a migraine specialist and he has recommended Botox injections to reduce my 24/7 chronic migraines.
I truly appreciate any feedback on this including side effects if any.
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. I also take a low dose of Clonazepam, I’ve heard to can interfere with deep sleep, but trying to withdraw from it is difficult.
It has been suggested that l try Cymbalta or Trazadone instead of Amitriptyline.

My ribs have been sore and achy the past couple of weeks. I have costochondritis but that usually hurts me in the middle of my chest. This is more close to where my underwire in my bra rests.

It seems like for years now that bending my hands to either grip a pen or hold a bowl causes the hand to cramp.

Any supplements that would be beneficial? Thank you

My question is I am suffering terrible headaches which turn into daily migraines. Waking with a headache/migraine lasting all day and night. Could this be from the morphine patch which I’m starting to think so hence trying to wean off them. Appreciate any input.
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?
The author lists the reintroduction foods and say to reintroduce them "in this order." The list is bulleted and in 3 columns. Do I read down or across?
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
