As I worked for an RN, my ten-year fight with fibromyalgia began. I worked at a busy operating center per diem in operation. Sometimes my work was stressful, but I liked the staff. In May 2006, I started to see my hands so much hurt that at night they were going to wake me. A week later, I noticed that both knees were hurt, in particular ascending and descending steps. Maybe I had rheumatoid arthritis I decided to make an appointment with my primary care doctor. He tested rheumatoid arthritis and told me to see a rheumatologist at the University of Pennsylvania, who did his bursary.
She made my exam, and I thought you had fibromyalgia, then told me. She ordered several laboratory tests to exclude anything else. She told me it would be best to stop working because I just got worse. Over the years, I have been sent to the Mayo Clinic to see whether I have the correct diagnosis because my fibromyalgia has been so severe. My last diagnosis was serious fibromyalgia. Cymbalta began medication that profoundly affected my memory. Then I was placed on Savella, and my blood pressure increased there. Lyrica was the last medication to make tinnitus fibromyalgia.
I started with a pain management practice after many years looking for help from numerous specialists.
I feel a lot better now. Doctors help with many treatments in the practice. I’ve had a nerve ablation radio frequency in my neck so I can twist my neck freely. My doctor recommended that I see a depression medicine psychiatrist. Together with Lexapro for depression, the psychiathist put me on Clonazepam low dose. The medicine had an unbelievable impact on how I felt before I took it.
I had sleep problems when I was studying sleep that showed I was often awakened, moving as if I were in pain. ZOHYDRO ER has been ordered by the pain management doctor in prolonged release to receive medication all night long. I’ve also been placed for sleep in Restoril. I ‘m surprised how much better I feel and work.
My other useful procedures are short distances and massage treatments twice a month every day. Every six weeks I’m also seeing a chiropractor to keep up with my hips. I see a physical therapist if I have other pain problems.
I went a long way to finally find a protocol for treatment that works for me. I suggest that anyone reading this article should not give up, but try until a routine works for you is found.
