I was diagnosed yesterday with cellulitis after going to numerous doctors who could not figure out what was going on with me. I get very itchy, burning stinging welts. One doctor told me it was some kind of insect bite. I had my apartment fumigated several times, even for bed bugs. I can go about 3 weeks with nothing, then these things pop out on my skin. I've had them in various different body parts but mostly on my legs. I was diagnosed years ago with Fibro. Is there a connection between the 2? And, can anyone suggest something to ease the itching? It's driving me insane. I have tried everything from antihistamines to creams and ointments.
Is there a specific reason why or how someone would become addicted to cocaine following a diagnosis of fibromyalgia? Especially odd since this abuser recognized a problem with alcohol, joined AA, yet continued with an intense cocaine addiction.
I have just today become suspicious that Benadryl has become a trigger for fibromyalgia. I would like to know if anyone else has this experience. Benadryl is essential for me because so far it is the only thing effective against attacks of extreme depression caused by air pollution. Because I'm 85 years old, I can't take more than .25 tab at a time because of its extreme effects on older people. In fact, people over 65 are advised not to take it at all. However, there is nothing else as effective against air pollution for me. But fibromyalgia is getting worse and I'm trying to find out if Benadryl is a factor. I already know that MSG and artificial sweeteners cause extreme pain for me. What other things ingested affect your fibromyalgia?
I was taking Salmeterol Xinafoate for a couple of months...I had some type of overdose reaction (perhaps increased serum levels) and since then my body has gone through some awful things. During and after, I've developed widespread myofascial pain, headaches, abdominal pains, cataracts and an ovarian cyst. Just curious if anyone who has been on any drug containing this chemical has had same/similar symptoms, especially ones that haven't gone away.

Hello everyone 😷! New Mexico Norm here . Found this site while on one of my internet explorations. Often thought I needed a way to vent, ask questions (other than a physician) and feel as though there may be a way to get some comfort from others experiences and maybe vice versa. We'll see. I'll start by saying that if you feel that I can offer any experience that may be of assistance ask away. I'm an open book per se.

Hi, my name is Mary, I am 53 yr old white female originally from midwest. I was diagnosed with Crohns disease at 20 yeears old. Fibromyalgia came along at about 50 years of age and then RA right after that! Right now all I do is survive day to day. I can't quit my job b/c my job provides the healthcare to my family. I have a very sedentary job but mentally exhausting. Difficult since I am never rested.
