I suffer from restless leg syndrome, almost every evening when I go to bed. It's awfully uncomfortable and annoying. My fibro consultant says there is nothing that can be done... Anyone with similar issues? Any advice highly welcome! Am on gabapentin, SSRIs and beta blockers for tachycardia.View Thread
I have that too, especially when I get up in the morning and whenever I get up from sitting or lying down for a while. The pain is in the feet, travelling up he lower legs, especially at the back. It is awfully difficult to walk and it takes me a while to go down the stairs. It even prompted me to buy a walking stick which helps a lot when I walk for a few hundred metres. This foot pain varies from mild to excruciating. Does yours improve during the day?View Thread
I had 13 surgeries before I was diagnosed with FMS about 1 year ago. I read that the physical trauma during surgery can actually bring on fibro as the cns is hypersensitised. I had major 14-hr surgery in --April, didn't have any prolonged pain in the affected area, but boy my fibro symptoms are a lot worse than before!! I wake up in pain, get better and can be ok and active until about 1 pm, then the couch calls as I get too tired, clumsy and foggy (and the pain hits) to function normally.haven't been able to work for the past year.View Thread
