  • Caused by azathioprine (3 responses)
    I started taking Azathioprine in 2003, and almost immediately started having very strange skin conditions, strange chronic rashes, etc. I also developed strange, tiny bumps on my palms and soles of my feet; which are extremely prominent after exposure to water. My father started taking this drug as well, for a different condition, and coincidentally developed the same spots on his hands at the same time. There is absolutely no history of this in the family and we both started the medication at the same time, and experienced the same results. We are both no longer taking this medication for these reasons, and still have this condition as a memory. I am very upset.
  • I take ambien and morphine to help me sleep at night
    I have had insomnia for 40 years. It began with menopause. At that time I was healthy and very active, I played tennis three times a week, I was a mother and a housewife and a teacher. When the insomnia began I had no pain. I'm 82 now and I have had continuous all over body pain for 5 years. No one has been able to diagnose my disease, they all just say it's arthritis or scoliosis or stenosis. I recently had an all over body scan but that still didn't help diagnose me nor help doctors make a diagnosis (I have been to every kind of doctor there is available to me here in Rancho Bernardo, Ca. For six months I have taken both Ambien and morphine just before going to bed. I have had no problems with that combination and the do allow me about 7 happy pain free hours of sleep at night.
  • Are fm and premature menopause linked (2 responses)
    I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at 17. I coped really well with it until I tragically lost my sister, met and married my husband and had a child all in one year. The trauma and also overload of emotions including PND seemed to ramp up all my symptoms. I do not work, I am a SAHM to 3. I rest as often as possible and have learned a new kind of way to live my life and priorities as best possible with my good and bad days. I only medicate with pain medication on my worst days. The others I just breathe through it :-)

    After seeing an endocrinologist for what I thought was a thyroid issue, I was surprised and must admit upset to find my bloods revealed premature menopause. Im only 32.

    I have wondered if there is a link and how many Fibro suffers have or are going through menopause at a young age. Anytime a link is established somewhere I hold out hope it will lead to a cure. The key maybe in the connection and collection of symptoms. So Im happy to add my name to any study or statistic in regards to this new diagnosis.

    However I like many others may have gone through prem menopause even if we didn't have FM. You just don't know :-)
  • Hair loss with miralax
    My hair started thinning out probably within a few weeks of starting Miralax on a daily basis. I continued taking it for approximately 6 months never thinking it was the Miralax. It being the only new drug I had been on, I looked on-line and immediately stopped taking it after seeing the side effects of hair loss approximately 3 days ago. So I have no long-term recovery to report as far as return of hair growth. I am keeping my fingers crossed and am already on vitamin supplements...B complex, multi vit, calcium and d. I did start on vit E in hopes that would help.
  • Topamax and numbness and tingling (2 responses)
    After taking topamax for approximately 3 months I developed a burning sensation in my nose and mouth that grew progressively worse and eventually resulted in facial numbness around my nose fanning out into my cheeks. ER doctors cleared me with no sign of storke on MRI and diagnosed it as a migrants. The Urgent Care doctor who referred me to ER to check for stoke is the one who indicated the numbness could be side effect from Topamax. after less than a week off the drug all side effects cleared and have never returned.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • Symptoms started in 2008 shooting pain in right leg from lumbar area down to foot.
    Was diagnosed with 3 herniated discs. Pinching of sciatica nerve from disc herniation. Went to Physiotherapy for 4 months. Corrected 90% but left with right foot 2 middle toes nerve damage. 2010 all over body pain started. Could not sit or stand for long periods of time. Bouts of sciatica started again. Went for a 3rd MRI. Sent to neurosurgeon. Could not do anything. Sent to neurologist. Diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Taking oxyneo for pain, pregabalin & cymbalta for nerve pain. I'm able to live with the pain but I can't handle the side effects. I have started treatment with a naturopathic doctor to see if I can go off some of the pills like the pregabalin that is causing weight gain, extreme sweating and mood swings.

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • My teeth have been decaying about 3 years after the insertion of mirena. At first, I thought that it was because I did not take calcium after I gave birth to my last child in 2003. But as the years passed by the only conclusion I find for the reason of my tooth decay is Mirena. Because I don't smoke, drink or do any drugs whatsoever.

  • My ears were bothering me last week and were clogged and had ringing in the ears. I got them cleaned and the ringing was still there. I noticed it even more when I raised my Zoloft intake.
