Potential Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

by Serena
(San Jose)

I have been having extreme problems with my hands. The doctors said Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Tendonitis, but the test on my nerves came back fine. They keep sending me in circles and its driving me nuts. I drop things, I'm in constant pain day and night, lose sleep and suffer major stress, as well as some weight gain. Now, I'm experiencing pain in my toes and neck, like a shock, then lingering pain that doesn't cease. Do you think fibromyalgia could be a factor?

Fibromyalgia is just a collection of symptoms
by: Kerri Knox, Registered Nurse

Fibromyalgia is just a collection of symptoms, it's not a diagnosis. So asking if 'Fibromyalgia could be an issue' is sort of like asking 'could headache be an issue'. It's just a fancy name for muscle pain along with some other symptoms, so as far as I'm concerned Fibromyalgia cannot BE an issue because it's just a symptom. Something ELSE is the 'issue'.

I also was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia
by: Karen

17 years ago I was diagnosed with Fibro. And also peripheral neuropathy...My neurologist did what testing he could and said that was what it was. He then asked me how my sleep was. Not good, I could fall asleep but if I woke up I couldn't get back to sleep for hours..So he prescribed me Doxepin for sleep. It was like a miracle, I didn't remember what it was like to get a good nights rest. He said my body could not heal if I didn't get the restorative rest that I needed.

I started healing and the pain in my arms and shoulders started getting so much better, it was amazing, the neuropathy got better too.
Now my question is...have you been on any antibiotics such as Levaquin, Ciprofloxacin, Avelox, or Floxin in the past before all these symptoms? Because my husband was and he got horrific pain in his arms and shoulders, his eyes, hips and knees.. torn rotator cuff, he woke up with these injuries, then he was diagnosed with tendonitis..had cortizone shots and went on a steriod for his eyes...He was severely damaged by these Fluoroquinolone Antibiotics..

Now I think back and I had also been on an antibiotic for a urinary infection, couldn't even lift my arms. I believe that my fibro. was actually tendonitis, caused by the antibiotics that I had previously taken. My husband has followed "The Levaquin Tendonitis Solution" written by Kerry and her husband Josh. After several months of this protocol, my husband is healed of all the damage. You need to think back and remember if you were on any of these antibiotics, they are poison and the damage can happen right away or months down the road.

I also have a few friends who took the Cipro and ended up with very painful, swollen knees and lower legs and a torn miniscus. So think back and read Kerry's info on the damage these drugs can do. Also google Levaquin toxicity or Cipro side effects, there are thousands of people blogging about how their lives are ruined,some are in wheel chairs, they've lost their jobs, homes are living in horrific pain. There are many forums talking about these poison pills. Check them out or the show on PBS..Levaquin Toxicity show on Youtube.
