On the question I ask earlier about fibromyalgia I do have pain in every spot mentioned except butt, knees and hips.?

Not everything hurts: To have fibromyalgia does not mean everything hurts although pain is usually wide spread. What is required is that pain be felt primarily in non-bone, non-joint structures (i.e., muscles, tendons, ligaments, soft tissues, skin, fascia). Pain is usually present on both sides and both above and below the waist. ...Read more

Could it be okay to take rose hips, don quai, maca, fenugreek seed and saw palmetto together?

Could it be okay to take rose hips, don quai, maca, fenugreek seed and saw palmetto together?

Probably okay...: I don't believe if there is a study to confirm the potential interaction among these natural substances. So, use them in moderation, watch, and see. But remember: occasionally, some so-called natural products may secretly mix and adulterate some prescribed ingredients to pump up its claimed effects because such products are not fda-regulated.

Best wish... ...Read more

I take Chewable Vitamin C with Rose Hips 500mg tablets. I'm assuming its 500mg a tablet? My main question is... Is it bad 2 take more than 2 at a time?

I take Chewable Vitamin C with Rose Hips 500mg tablets. I'm assuming its 500mg a tablet? My main question is... Is it bad 2 take more than 2 at a time?

Vitamin C: Taking 1000mg will not be problematic relative to 500 mg but it would probably be more effective to take one 500mg tablet in the morning and the other at night. Your body's capacity for absorbing vitamin c is limited and once exceeded the balance is excreted and therefore wasted. Consider dosing twice a day rather all at once. ...Read more

Where do I find foods with vitamin C but without bioflavonoids or rose-hips?

Where do I find foods with vitamin C but without bioflavonoids or rose-hips?

Basic biology: Most fresh vegetables and fruits have vitamin c. Rose hips are pulped and added to synthetic vitamin c (manufactured from petroleum) in tiny amounts to give it glamour so the manufacturers can charge an inflated price. Bioflavonoinds are pigments found in plants and aren't going to harm you. You've been done a disservice by 'nutrition' sites; get with an evidenc-based physician / dietician. ...Read more

Medication is giving me adverse reactions to my fibromyalgia, rhuematoid and anxiety. I have been prescribed tramodol for my pain related to fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, it causes my entire back, shoulders, hips and thighs to go into a type of "freeze" t

Hello, sorry: Hello,
sorry to hear about your pain. Tramadol is one of the medications that is prescribed for treatment of chronic pain. It has been used in fibromyalgia and can be successful in some individuals. Tramadol does work with central nervous system, it is considered a "weak opioid", so from that stand point you are getting some central nervous system " coverage". Tramadol is not the only medication that can be tried. There are other ones, such as lyrica, cymbalta, savella (milnacipran) etc that have been utilized in management of this condition. Those medications may or may not be covered by your insurance. Chronic pain is an extremely difficult thing to deal with. It is important to allow some time for medication to stay in your system before you decide that it may bot be working for you.
Good luck! ...Read more

Trying to miscarry?: Abortion medicine is by prescription, so a woman goes to her Ob-Gyn doctor (or a women's clinic) to be evaluated for it. Whether or not medicine can be used also depends on the age of the baby fetus (the number of weeks pregnant). The doctor will talk with the patient to be sure that the patient is making a good permanent decision, because abortion is a hard decision for any woman to make. ...Read more

I have fibromyalgia and sogrens and now bursitis in the hip, tendonitis in the shoulder. Does anyone see a benefit in buying a sleep number bed?

I have fibromyalgia and sogrens and now bursitis in the hip, tendonitis in the shoulder. Does anyone see a benefit in buying a sleep number bed?

Treat the fibromyalg: I suspect a lot of this is fibromyalgia. It is made worse by poor sleep, poor exercise, and poor control of the stress and psychiatric issues you need to treat all of these issues. The sleep number bed may help the sleep, but it may be a benefit to get a sleep evaluation to see if there is any other process occurring. If there is it may not be necessary to get the sleep number bed. Issues to be certain all of the reasons you have fibromyalgia are being treated. ...Read more

Benadryl (diphenhydramine) HCl 25 mg: Benadryl (diphenhydramine) in that dose is an effective dose for many patients with insomnia, but it could be too low for most of them. Usually 50 mg or 100 mg of Diphenhydramine (generic name for benadryl) are needed for a good night sleep. The usual dose for melatonin are 3 mg - 6 mg one to two hours before bedtime. There are personal variations in the dose of medications and herbs to induce and maintain sleep. ...Read more

I was doing squats and I felt a sudden pull on the outside of my thigh as I rose from the bottom. It is a straight line from my hip to my knee?

Strain: Muscle strain is likely and requires rest. Intermittent cold applications for 48 hours followed by warm applications. Nsaids like ibuprofen, if you can take them, help reduce associated inflammation. If the hip joint was sprained, the treatment is similar. See an orthopedic specialist if symptoms worsen or persist longer than 7-10 days. ...Read more
