How severe is an albumin of 5.4?  Please describe severity of symptoms?  Crippling fatigue, pulsating symptoms, severe headaches, eye pain, nausea?

None of the above: I hope it doesn't disappoint you greatly to let you know that your Albumin levels are considered quite within the normal range. Of course, lab values do vary from one laboratory to another therefore, it would be best to find out the normal range in the laboratory you had the blood drawn or tested but for all intents and purposes the range of normal for Albumin is taken to be 3.5 to 5.5. ...Read more

Try Cymbalta (duloxetine): Mood disorders are commonly associated with fibromyalgia. Especially depression and anxiety.

I would recommend talking with you physician about trying this medication. Routine exercise is also recommended. ...Read more

Type of this headache: very intense non-pulsating pain in back of 1 eye, but not red eye, sudden onset, 20 min. later sudden relief, several a day?

Any eye pain: could be an indication of a severe emergency. You need to have your eye pressure checked for glaucoma, which can be done in between such episodes. It would be very helpful to have it done with an episode, but if it is glaucoma, probably the pressure is up all the time and the pain is when it gets dangerously high. So don't delay, please. Good luck! ...Read more

Severe headache lasting days. Sinuses hurt! just came off allergies/cold. Worst headache of my life. Not usually prone to migraines.

Severe headache lasting days. Sinuses hurt! just came off allergies/cold. Worst headache of my life. Not usually prone to migraines.

Possible sinusitis: Try short term (no more than 2 days in a row) use of afrin nasal spray to see if you get immediate relief of sinus pain (assuming sinus pain). May add a decongestant like Mucinex (guaifenesin) d. Don't use either if you have hypertension. Continue use of Ibuprofen as well as needed for pain. Use nasal saline to help wash nasal passages out as well. If no better in a few days, see your doctor. ...Read more
