I was told by my doctor that I had fibromyalgia. As I gotten older, it has gotten worse and is becoming increasingly more painful. I recently met a young woman that has started a treatment using Gauifensen and eliminating Salislates for her diet and also eliminating them in product/medication forms. Can you tell me if you know anyting about Gauifensen and if it is true that this product can flush the body of all the agents that cause fibromyalgia? I need to do something — the pain is taken over my life and I have tried everything. I just don’t want to get started down another path that maybe wrong. Can you please let me know what you think about the above questions.
Fibromyalgia Q & A
I have fibromyalgia..and I just had blood work ..my white blood count came up a little high..also my hemoglobin came up a little high also. Is this normal? Also, I am a smoker.
I need a good doctor for Fibromyalgia. Can you treat me, or make a referral?
I am a 52-year-old female and have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis in the spine. I have hypermobile joints and have always had poor muscle tone. In your opinion, should I be worked up for EDS?
Desperate for second opinion whether I have something else going on other than fibromyalgia. Any specialists in the State of Florida?
I was told I had a positive for rheumatoid arthritis (though a low positive) an a high inflammation level then sent to the rheumatologist by my personal doctor. The rheumatologist has now decided I have a herniated disc in my back that is causing these issues because the pain that is keeping me from being able to walk is in one leg and he says has taken away my reflexs in that leg. When I got the records from his office to take with me to the neurosurgical consultation and for the MRI an I found that his interprution of my explation of pain did not line up with the points I was trying to make about my ankle and hip pain in BOTH sides though my leg/ knee pain is only to my right and I have muscle pain on that side also that feels like a hot knife. He quotes me in ways I don’t recognize and seemed frustrated that the first doctor sent me to him. I don’t understand does that mean he thinks I only have a herniated disc or do I go back and re-examine the rheumatiod issue after the disc is dealt with/ He didn’t seem to have time to discuse this with me and I waited and hour and a half once I was in the room to be examine and for consultation. I don’t think communication went well though I think he may be right about the herniated disc it still does not explain to me the issues with my hands, elbows and feet.
