Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose, and doctors are reluctant to do this?

April 17th, 2013 4 comments

Call rosefox8 ? Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose, and doctors are reluctant to do I have experienced many symptoms of pain since the summer of 2006 (widespread chronic pain, soft tissue pain, tenderness, fatigue, weakness, pain, pain, sleep problems, concentration problems , brains fog migraines and muscle cramps). I have cerebral palsy on my left, and epilepsy. A friend with fibromyalgia suggested I see a doctor because they suspect I have fibromyalgia. When I saw the doctor, she prescribed me Cymbalta, took my blood and told me that it was “non-specific widespread chronic pain”. She was reluctant to say anything about fibro because “it can be anything.” The blood tests are fine. The Cymbalta helps somewhat. My friend still feels that it could not be anything else. My gut instinct, my intuition says it is fibro. But I do not want to seem hypochondriac, especially since I have several other diagnosed conditions. I’m just afraid that the doctor will remain reluctant to diagnose best answer.

Oh, I believe that the repercussions of the whole ‘trash’ diagnosis thing. Many doctors were criticized for diagnosing fibromyalgia for issues that had not been thoroughly examined. I would ask to see. A rheumatologist If you’ve seen one, get a second opinion.

” I received a flu shot yesterday my arm swollen and challenging to move & my total entire body is ache?” — This is a extremely unusual reaction. Could you be exaggerating a tiny?

“Im also running a fever what should I do ?” — Unless I know what your temperatures have been, I won’t know if you have a fever or not.

The whole point of a flu vaccination is to stimulate the immune method into generating antibodies towards the antigens in the vaccine o that if exposed once more to any of the antigens, your physique will acknowledge them and know how to battle off this enemy appropriate away. The antigens (surface proteins) are from more than a single flu virus. The way our immune method responds to antigens is to develop signs, like fever, in an hard work to generate an inhospitable and unsafe (to foreign organisms) atmosphere. This is standard and you should not worry about. The viral particles in the injected vaccine are inactive and unable to replicate so your immune program is reacting to the antigens alone. This will pass is two-3 days. Take Tylenol/ibuprofen and drink more cold water if your temperature is above 99.8. Cold water alone if it’s not. Whichever antipyretic you take is also an analgesic and will assist decrease your ache and pains. Use an ice pack on your arm to reduce any swelling. Consider it easy for a day or two. All this will pass.
