    Hand/Finger Weakness?

    I broke all the glasses in my cupboard from dropping everything. They're all plastic now. Sucks!

    B-12 problems anyone?

    I'm still worried all these symptoms came from that period in my life where I was a vegetarian and might have suffered B12 problems. I took supplements but not the sublingual. My mother was diagnosed with severe B-12 deficiency causing psychotic episodes and weakness. I went away slowly with...

    Hand/Finger Weakness?

    My hands have always hurt since getting sick, I fumbled and dropped things all the time but my grip was still testing normal until my last doctors visit. I squeezed as hard as a could but he was telling me I was hardly doing it. I'm 37...shouldn't be this weak. So whatever this is it's progressing.

    Help me

    I am feeling rather dismal myself, I can tell my neurotransmitters are low, I'm scared, upset, wary, uncomfortable, anxious, feeling doomed, feel like I'm about to loose control, feel like I'm in a nightmare, feel like I'm the only one on the planet. I feel like everything is wrong and going to...

    Scared about getting orthodontics

    I wore braces for so many years as a kid. They probably will set you up with invisaline or whatever it's called to wear at night. So the pain shouldn't be that bad. If it is ask your doctor if he can prescribe you something until you teeth finish moving to where they should be...if you don't...

    Research paper about patient perspective on fibromyalgia

    I read a bit and added it to reading brain it too fried today. But I read that it takes an average of 3 yrs to diagnose going to 3.7 12 yrs 20 doctors, teams of neurologists and students, every doctor in the psych ward of 2 hospitals (they all thought it was anxiety and...

    emotional hell

    My emotions, at least all my negative ones are so amplified with fibro, I'm super sensitive to everything so I can relate to what you're saying. I find the normals really can't relate usually. I use to be terrified of being alone. When I was told I'd be alone in the house my anxiety would spike...

    Pain draining my brain.

    I get some replies. I also want her to have a copy of my test results from other doctors so that maybe we can come up with treatment options, testing, and I've been having some very strange symptoms lately so I wanted them recorded and input later on. I did go to the hospital twice but the wait...

    Massage cause extreme pain

    Before my current fibro diagnosis I got weekly massages it was the only way to get to the deep down pain in my bones and muscles. In my arms massages can be better than the lousy pain meds that people with fibro are mostly only allowed. Having fibro does not mean they will even focus on your...

    Pain draining my brain.

    That's a good idea. I've been sending emails as things progress when I think of them. My doc saves them we go over them at the appt...but only for the one doctor. It doesn't work over the phone and some days are better than others. I think it has something to do with the meds effecting my...

    Pain draining my brain.

    This is so frustrating for me and it's probably hindering my ability to get well. Whenever I go to a doctors appointment just getting there and waiting and sitting up (spinal disks are slipping) drains my mind to the point where I can't even remember the points I wanted to discuss. I'm usually...

I had to pin it down with a pillow and my other foot. My whole body is shaking and feeling raw. Hands and legs are...

    TENS unit for pain adverse reaction??

    I bought a TENS unit a few days ago and have been using it daily. I went to the doctor yesterday they checked my BP and the left arm was 74/48 and the right was 98/54. I'm not sure of the bottom numbers so don't quote me. I've always had low blood pressure but not that low especially in the left...
