I'm not coping with fibromyalgia flare-ups. I'd love advice on how to deal with symptoms.?

See details: Are you under the care of a rheumatologist? If the flares are frequent, medication adjustments can be helpful. The major thing is that no therapy is 100% effective so there will be periods of increased pain and fatigue. Speak with the doctor treating your fibro and see if any changes in meds are indicated.

Possibly: Asympomatic (no or few/mild symptoms) carriers do exist but since transmission is most likely when an infected person's open sores contact the delicate mucus membrane tissue of another person. It's rarely been known to transfer from a non-symptomatic individual, but he can have a (not perfect) test. Info: http://goaskalice. Columbia. Edu/testing-asymptomatic-herpes Best!

Can u get flare up symptoms from missing two night doses of Amoxcillin? Cause I take it for sinusitis. Supposed to take 875mg two times a day.

Not likely: You should take your medications as directed as close to the schedule as possible. It isn't the flare up of symptoms, but the incomplete eradication of bacteria. That can lead to chronic infection with more resistant bacteria and an infection harder to treat.

Why do I have a lupus flare during my menstrual cycle most of the time? Also my p.O.T.S symptoms worsen during this time how can I help this?

Why do I have a lupus flare during my menstrual cycle most of the time? Also my p.O.T.S symptoms worsen during this time how can I help this?

Inflammation: Lupus and the pre-menstrual phase of the cycle are both known for being states of increased inflammation, so it makes sense that you might have this and notice it during your menstrual cycle. I would speak with your rheumatologist regarding medications that are safe to take to diminish the flare symptoms, as some anti-inflammatories are harmful for kidneys. Best of luck.
