Fibromyalgia Syndrome? Pulled Muscle In Neck And Migraines?
Oct 30, 2015
It started 10 months ago with my body aching ( whole body) like I had done some rigorous workout the day before, and aching pain between my shoulder blades central of the neck. Followed with a migraine. I have suffered with migraines for 20 plus years. 2 years ago though I received a massive blow to my head - I received a glass light smashed to the top of my head. This aching body and what I can only describe what feels like a pulled muscle in my neck as a Daily thing now to the point I get constant migraines I'm on medication for my migraines by the way. I have seen a doctor but she didn't think what I have is Fibro? I hope I have explained ok? I'm writing this from an iPad and some parts it goes blank so I cant see !!. What I want is does anyone think it could be Fibro? Maybe not !. Or can anyone relate to me what I maybe experiencing?

I've been having a hard time with neck pain, I'm guessing in my C1-C2 region. I say this because I can literally hear my vertebrates grinding together followed by a sharp pain that runs all the way to my temple and the top of my head, which in turn is causing severe migraines and fatigue. It's gotten to the point where I'll be lucky if one migraine only lasts 3 days. After it goes away, it returns 3-4 days later. It's gotten extremely worse over the past month. I've tried a few physical therapy exercises the relieve the tension but I've found little to no relief. I'm baffled because I'm only 23. Being this young shouldn't suggest long term damage, but the pain tells me otherwise. Any advice or information on some form of release would be more appreciated than anything.

For the past year I have experienced mild to severe head and neck pain only on right side. What would cause it and can I get rid of it completely? Some things help but it always comes back. I have not had any injury to my knowledge if so it was due to possible moving wrong or something. I can relieve the pain slightly by pushing my head down and to the left with my left hand. It's really bad if I cough or sneeze. If I massage the indentation on the right of spine on neck at base of skull it helps a little. A chiropractor has helped as well as using a water pillow but the pain eventually comes back.

Results came back, only thing wrong is D3 level at 6 ng/ml (minimum should be 30). I was prescribed 25000 UI a week for three months. I also sent a mail with the results to my endocrinologist. She says she doesn't think my symptoms come from a vitamin D deficiency. Now I respect the woman a LOT. She has helped me in many ways in the past and she's been the only one to find what was wrong with me years back when I had severe health issues and every other doctor thought I was just "depressed".
I am though very surprised by her answer. I've read of a lot of people having very similar symptoms with vitamin D deficiency, and for most of them the symptoms just flew away when their vitamin D level went back up.
So yesterday I went to see the RA and it appeared as if he cared. He explained that I was severe with FIBRO and that there isn't too much that he could do. He upped my LYRICA to 200 mg (not sure why as it gives me more issues than taking pain away) . He also suggested that I go to a Fibro Clinic in UF , some where in the panhandle of Florida, I can not do it (Finances, Insurance, I don't drive because of LYRICA) . He also gave me a referral for SUBOXONE This is a medicine that they usually give for people who have had problems with pain pills.The RA explained how he just read an article in how this could help me. Has any one else experienced this? Did it work?

Selenium deficiency is considered by some naturopathic doctors the key to Fibromyalgia and CFS.

Some even relate it with animal “Nutritional muscular dystrophy” AKA “White muscle disease”.
Should we go to the vet?
Fibro is a like a box of dark chocolate, each centered chocolate has a different symptom filling. And leaves a nasty taste in your mouth.

I've had problems all of my life and at the moment my condition has worsened, but unfortunately it's something that we don't talk about. I've got fibromyalgia, arthritis and herniated discs in my spine consequently I'm in a lot of pain all of the time so it's a catch 22 situation my tablets cause the constipation but I need my tablets! What's the answer?

While the quantity of sleep can be important, what's much more important is the quality. Our bodies go through two distinct stages of sleep starting with non-REM (Rapid Eye Movement) and then into REM and cycling between the two throughout the night.

When we first fall asleep we drop into the non-REM cycle and this can be further broken down into three stages which move closer towards a deeper sleep. It's during the last stage where our bodies repair and heal and rebuild themselves. Non-REM sleep typically lasts up to 60-90 minutes with the majority of that time devoted to a deep sleep.
After this our bodies cycle into REM sleep. The main characteristic of this cycle is the eye movements that take place and before there were EEGs and ways of measuring muscle activity it was thought that our brains simply shut-off during sleep, this was far from the truth. During REM sleep our brains are quite active and this is the time when dreams occur, if you wake up and vividly remember a dream you were probably in the middle of REM sleep. It is also thought that REM sleep enhances our memory and contributes to our mental and emotional health. It's possible that during these two cycles of sleep we go through periods of maintaining our bodies and our minds.
Adults typically need between 7.5 to 9 hours of sleep a night and during this time our bodies will move through one cycle to the next and back several times. There are also a lucky few of us who seem to be able to function on less sleep...
I'm a thirteen year old girl with an unhelpful doctor who literally doesn't want anything to do with me because I'm 'hard work' to diagnose. My family believes it's chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia or both. So that's the home treatment path I'm taking. My symptoms have been going for 6 months now and they are diarrhea, nausea, joint aches, headaches, fatigue, confusion, dizziness brain fog, tenderness, weakness and muscle pain. I've been tested for crohn's, ulcerative colitis, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, parasites, dysbiosis, virus, infections and celiac disease. I also have eczema, restless legs, irritable bowel, anxiety and gastroesophageal reflux disease. I'm not under any stress at the moment.

I went out for a meal with work on Saturday night and have been feeling under the weather ever since. I initially said I wouldn't go but it was a special evening and I really felt that I should make an effort and go. I only had one small beer and lemonade but the food wasn't what I would normally eat and I did feel stressed as I had to sit at the top table which made it difficult to hear and join in conversations. I went to bed about 11.30 and slept for 12 hours. I spent Sunday afternoon in my pjs and slept another 12 hours last night. My muscles have been really twitchy and jerky and my appetite has been down. Do any of you suffer in either a similar way or differently after going out?

Many people have told me there is a cure but professionals like doctors and my rheumatologist have said there is not the trouble is they say they don't actually know what the cause is as everyone is different so how can you cure what you don't know i have been researching into other professionals theories and run them but my rhuematologist and psychologist and they have said that they don't believe there is a cure yet and i have spoken to a specialist who has been researching fibro for over 40 years now and he said there is not a cure yet i have heard so many comments on this and was wondering what others thought on this subject and how many people think it's true or false

I got to see my RA again this Friday , he decided that I am in pain because tramadol is not enough during the day. So he wants me to take Lyrica during the day. I have been and it might be helping 10 percent but makes me want sleep and makes it hard to think. I have even stuttered a few times. My husband is sick of it , I am suppose to be ready to intern this Wednesday ,everyday til December 12th . I barely can walk for a few minutes, before I do the 90 year old walk. My husband is taking me to a pain management clinic, to help me out of pain. I would love to be out of pain and normal, but lets face it I am not too excited on treating the pain and not the problem. I don't take medicine, until now and everything I try I have the low percent chance of the side effects. I DON'T want a pain clinic, but I want to be done with this misery.
