My wife suffers from fibromyalgia and I would like to find someone who specializes in fibro to have her evaluated and treated. We live in Dover, Delaware but are willing to travel. Who can we contact and how can we set up an appointment?
Fibromyalgia Q & A
My wife has been diagnosed with Polymyalgia and Fibromyalgia (high sed. rate, trigger points, pain in arms, legs, groin & etc.) She has been on prednisone for apprx. 9 mo. and methotrexate for 6 mo, now up to 15 mg. She has never been able to get below 15 mg. prednisone along with MTX without huge pains. Below 12 mg. pred. her sed. rate goes up. Now the bicep area of one of her arms is swollen with red splotches apprx. 5 places that have kinda combined into one red area about the size of a teacup, it looks like it has a deep bleeding in it. She says at times it feels as though the meat is being pulled from the bone. It has a continual dull toothache like ache in it. Is this commom to PMR/FMS? MTX makes her nauseous and weak for about four days, but she continues to take it and hope.

My doctor prescribed me Flexeril to help me with my leg pains at night. I have FMS and have had it 7 years now. However, They told me I can only stay on the Flexeril for 2 weeks. No other pills seem to help me like the Flexeril does. Is there like a sister pill to Flexeril that I can use everyday and indefinitely? I would like to go back to my doctor and have this info so he can’t tell me no if there for a fact is. Thank you so much for any information you can give me and for your time.
