Fibromyalgia Any Vitamins Make Pain
Constant pain from fibromyalgia take lyrica (pregabalin) but do on't help with muscle so ssasms any suggestions?
Muscle relaxants: Lyrica (pregabalin) is more of a nerve blocking agent for treatment of the fibromyalgia. If you have concomitant muscle spasms, perhaps a muscle relaxant will help with those symptoms (eg. Flexeril, robaxin, Soma or even baclofen) just be careful due to the increased drowsiness side-effect of both medications, which may increase dramatically if used together. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possible: Research has been done looking at magnesium supplements as well as same (supplements containing Amino Acid derivatives) in fibromyalgia pain however results were inconclusive.

50mg tramadol isn't giving me relief at all for fibromyalgia or behcets joint pain. Any other pain med recommendations?
See details: First of all, your doctor has to try to determine whether the pain is related to fm or to behcet's. I agree fibromyalgia pain should be treated with meds such as cymbalta, gabapentin, Lyrica or savella (milnacipran). Behcet's induced arthritic pain will respond to other approaches including prednisone, Methotrexate or tnf agents. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Don't think so.: Stretching, heat from a shower or heating pad (don't get burned), massage, & acupuncture can help. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) can help with both pain relief and in reducing inflammation. Examples are ibuprofen (like Advil, Nuprin or Motrin), Naproxen sodium (like Aleve, (naproxen) Naprosyn, Anaprox) or Asprin (such as Bayer, Ecotrin, Ascriptin). Avoid NSAID's if pregnant or allergic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I suffered serotonin syndrome due to a combo of savella (milnacipran) and tramadol. Are there any other drugs available to help my fibromyalgia pain and fatigue?
Healthy diet works!: Moderate intensity exercise helps. High intensity is not necessary. In my clinical experience, Diet is more important though. Make sure you dont have any food allergies, get an objective serum/urine nutritional profile and start an anti-inflammatory diet. No sugar or alcohol, minimize simple carbs/grains, avoid trans and omega 6 fats, processed food. Eat lots of veges and fruit, monounsat fat ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Possibly: A child with finromyalgia would be very rare. I would suggest a comprehensive medical and psychological evaluation in a pediatric pain program to make sure nothing is missed. Some of my adult patients feel a bit better with vitamin d3, Alpha lipoic acid, acetylcarnitine, and fish oil. I can't comment on using these in children. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Are there any muscle relaxant medications that do not cause drowsiness or tummy upset? for back pain, thanks
I'm afraid not: Tizanidine is the least likely to cause drowsiness (50% of people taking it get sleepy). The trade-off is that it's less proven to help acute back pain than cyclobenzaprine which seems to make almost everyone drowsy. Baclofen is just as bad. I usually recommend cyclobenzaprine at the 5mg dose taken just at bedtime for those who find it overly sedating during the day. Usually short-term use only ...Read more
