Aug 29, 2013 · Managing fibromyalgia in Bones, Joints & Muscles

Hello everyone, I am looking for anyone who suffers from fibromyalgia and can suggest healing methods, medication and I would like to compare symptoms. Mine feels as if I had the flu, headache, joint aches, terribly tired, pain around the glands, stomach pain, low back. If lyou can please write with any comment or suggestion for relief, or any idea what causes it I will appreciate it thank you.

I really can relate to your problems and hope you are feeling better. I have not been on this site for a while, but all the symptoms you describe are exacly as mine. IBS, FIBRO,TMJ,MIGRAINE, .Ive been told by a dr that the ibs and fibromyalgia go hand in hand. When I have bad episodes they are exactly as you describe I feel like I cannot get out of bed, but strangely enough for me if I move bout, take a real hot bath and a muscle relaxant, it starts to ease up. Drs want to put me on antidepressants and Im reluctant to do so and I trly to avoid hard core pain meds, vicodin very rarely. I do feel that the fibro has some relation to your stress level and that it reacts to temperature changes (warmer being best) Thank God in that respect I live in Calif and I suffer more in winter. I will consider the suggestion on the lady whomentioned a hot tub because for me water exercise did help.
I hope that all these comments can bring more awareness and research on this disease that is so debilitating. Godd luck to all of you

I hope you feel better,I know how painful it can be. I suffered from what they call IBS for many yrs, then had a gall bladder operation and ever since then all my problems got worse and they sd I have fibromyalgia. Hope the hot baths help I will pray for you.

To Dorothy, I was diagnosed with fm about 6 months ago and it is increasingly becoming more painful, headaches at night pain mostly dur night. Seems cold weather mks it worse. I fell for you, I hvent been told what medication to take for it for me warm epsom salt baths help some. I also experience not being able to get out of bed, but actually moving around is better

Thank you, I recently had a blood test to check for Celiac disease which includes not tolerating wheat. Am waiting to hear, good to know to read the labels to see if they contain corn.

Thank you much for your suggestion, will mention it to myDr on next visit. Sometimes I do feel as if there were bacteria somewhere. I did see a nutritionist for a while for as long as the insurance allowed. I will also ask for this gastric emptying test even if I have to pay out of pocket.
