No I haven't been banned. Just trying a new medication and am having some nasty side effects. Would love it if Minnesota would go - all in - on medical marijuana = not toxic. Would like to see if it could be a good treatment option. But I would also need Medicare to pay the same as they do for big pharma toxic medication - to be able to afford to try it.

Glad you're still here. Please PM me regarding whatever health problems you have. I may be able to help. Or maybe not but I'd like to try.

I have (for over twenty years now) fibromyalgia - a central nervous system disorder/illness/disease. There is really nothing to be done other than try to manage it.

[-] 0 points by StillModestCapitalist (343) 5 years ago

Please don't be offended. I'm trying to help.

No - I am not offended - I can perfectly well understand the disbelief of others - as - I do not look ill. It is something one would have to experience for themselves - either in their 1st hand experience or in their 1st hand knowledge/experience of someone else dealing with it. Fibromyalgia can not be identified - it must instead be tested for - the tests ruling out what it is not. It is not just pain - and the pain can be very wide spread as well as located in a singular area/spot. The pain can be pins and needles - the pain can be deep bone bruising ( in feeling ) the pain can stab you in the eye (s) with a needle or a knitting needle or anywhere else in the body - the pain can be migraines - the pain can be like breaking bones - the pain can be like burning tissue - the pain can be sharp or dull. But there is also nausea - there is also cramping - there is also a sensitivity to light sound heat and cold - there are digestive difficulties - there is diarrhea - there is constipation - there is fatigue ( mental as well as physical) - there is pretty much anything you can imagine - as the central nervous system is the operating system of the WHOLE BODY.

It's not disbelief. Please watch the video.

One more thing. Consider getting a low stride elyptical. They can be found used for under $200 on Craigslist. They are incredibly easy to use and very smooth with no impact whatsoever. They have been known to work wonders on the lower back. In my opinion, they are hands down, the best home fitness gadget for those who just want basic fitness and flexibility. Low stride in particular.

When I was still working - I bought a stationary bicycle for low impact cardiovascular and a bow-flex for low resistance and low impact endurance exercise - specifically to help support my health and ability to continue working. The thing is with fibromyalgia - is - that it doesn't matter the type of exercise - it is all about not doing too much - and even so - all exercise will and does have it's nasty repercussions. So - if I don't exercise - I fall apart - if I do exercise - I fall apart - but in exercising - I know that there will be hell to pay - but if I don't overdo it - there can also be some small benefit to go along with the heightened illness. Natural vitamins and system supporting supplements have been the most helpful in helping my body to function.

Low stride elyptical. Nothing else like it. Make sure your furniture is firm but comfortable, your mattress is good, your posture is good, your work/chore form is good, and please watch the video. Also have a bar to hang from installed somewhere convenient. Hang from it often enough to develop calluses on your hands. Back health is the key to reducing or possibly iliminating your symptoms.

My pain doesn't radiate from my back.

Sometimes it is head to toe.

Sometimes it is just the toe.

Sometimes it is my scalp.

Sometimes it is my pectoral.

Sometimes it is my scapula.

Sometimes it is my eyeball.

Sometimes it is a testicle.

Sometimes it is the bones of my feet pushing through the flesh underneath.

Sometimes it is one or both shinbones feeling like they are split lengthwise from knee to ankle and stepping on one foot or the other makes it feel like that split is bowing apart.

Sometimes my skin sloughs off in thick calluses - it may be on my face or my feet or my arms or my back or my chest.

Sometimes I have major white head skin rashes anywhere you can imagine - even in my outer ear canal.

I can get a minor scald - that within weeks will turn into a scabrous sore - and after healing will still be visible years later.

My shins can feel like they are burning when all I am doing is lying down on my stomach.

My Diaphragm can cramp - because I am lying on my stomach.

I know you mean well - and I thank you for that - but an elliptical walker and a pair of gravity boots are not gonna solve the problem.

Most of the symptoms you list above are associated with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Three are not. But it doesn't matter where the pain feels like its radiating from. Virtually every symptom associated with fibromyalgia, including those from your list associated are also associated with pinched, aggravated, or tickled spinal nerves. They literally have the potential to tell your brain that your foot is on fire when it's not. Traditional doctors are not likely to tell you this. They almost never do.

Some of your symptoms are also known side effects of many prescription drugs. Others are known effects of inactivity, poor posture, poor work form and/or injury. Of all the symptoms you list, the only three that I find curious or the least bit surprising are those regarding your skin conditions. They may be secondary issues or they may be unrelated. But all of the others, all of them are known symptoms of poor back health, inactivity, or drug related side effects.

If I lived anywhere near you, I would offer to buy your low stride elyptical in the event it didn't alleviate any of your symptoms. That's how sure I am that it will of you give it a chance.

Please watch the video, give a reputable chiropractor two weeks to make a difference (it may hurt for the first few days, nothing serious) and get yourself a low stride elyptical. Low stride is very important. The less expensive high stride elypticals don't work the same wonders on your lower back. Also, try staying in a hotel with a pool for three days. Use the pool each day, put 5 minutes on their low stride elyptical if they have one, end your evening with a warm bath or shower, watch your posture and get a good night of sleep. Most well known hotels have excellent mattresses. Give it three days and see if it makes a difference.

I won't hassle you about this anymore but I do hope that you take the advice.

By the way it appears that someone is playing markdown games again. As far as I know, those who hate you also hate me. So I find it curious that any of them would mark your comments here down but not mine. It may be another one of their tricks.

I watched the video. I have been to see chiropractors and have had spinal realignment = no help. I have been to an acupuncturist = was able to relieve a permanently knotted muscle. I have had physical therapy at a couple of different centers - exercise in a warm pool with the body weight suspended in water. I have had electro-muscular stimulation = which does add some relief and does help tone muscles without the severe illness aggravation of general exercise - again the overall pain relief benefit is fleeting. I have been dealing with this for over twenty years now - and some things I have found to help and some things not to help. Opiate Pain killers don't help as the receptors are blocked by the fibromyalgia. I have a Tempur-Pedic bed ( which I bought while I was still working) it helps.

Were you injured prior to your diagnosis? What did you discover about the condition of your back when you saw a chiropractor? Have you had x-rays? If so, what did they indicate? Did the physical therapy help in any way?

With no test on Earth to definitively indicate fibromyalgia, not even after last years so called 'breakthrough', there is no way to confirm any theory regarding fibro-blocked receptors. In fact, I would pay to hear a team of world-renowned doctors explain how a Tempur-Pedic bed, which by the way, some love, others hate can help alleviate the symptoms of fibro if in fact they are caused not by a back problem or the related inactivity but by an unrelated central nervous system disorder.

I've been healthy, fit, athletic, limber and incredibly resilient for over twenty years. Easily the most healthy person I have ever known. Last year, I bought a used car with a twisted driver's seat. It caused extreme pain and stiffness each time I made the long drive to visit my parents. One particular week last year, I slept in a camper for three days after making that long drive in the used car with the twisted driver's seat. After the second night, I developed pain all over my body. I mean all the hell over. It was bizarre. I couldn't even make the drive back home. I had to stop after two hours and stay the night in a hotel. Fortunately, they had a low stride elyptical which I immediately took advantage of after baby stepping my way down from my room.

After twenty minutes, I was back to putting my palms on the floor. Still a little sore but nothing serious. I gave it another twenty minutes before bed, another twenty minutes the following morning and made the remainder of my drive home. With no errands to run, I was back to my normal workout/activity routine and back to 100% within 48 hours.

All of that pain, every last bit of it from the neck down was due to a severely aggravated back and three days of reduced activity. Now try to imagine how my 'condition' would have progressed if I had disregarded the cause and what I already knew from years of experience as a health/fitness nut and taken instead, the advice of a doctor and their stinking pain killers.

Life as I have known it for the last twenty plus years would have been OVER.

I'm not assuming that your condition is that simple. Certainly not after twenty years. But I would bet on a primary contributing factor and several aggravating factors. I'd also bet that you have a back problem. I've never encountered a fibro patient to confirm otherwise. In fact, most readily admit having one.

I actually do have a back condition ( from birth ) - it is referred to as bilateral spondylolysis of the L5 (fifth lumbar). It got me rejected from joining the military when I was eighteen. This condition has not gotten worse over time and is periodically checked and I do exercises to strengthen support of the abdomen and back. Currently the vertebra has not shifted nor have the vertebra to either side of it. There is no visible Spinal Stenosis - and yes this was explored during my time of testing at Fairview University Hospital - prior to my (after two years of testing) diagnosis.

That being said.

I actually am looking into getting an inversion table as a next step in home health maintenance. It's just kinda hard to scrape up that kind of cash.
