What happens if a person with fibromyalgia stops taking their medications?
They get better. I stopped taking all my medications and the fibromyalgia pain ceased. A year later, I read a book by a doctor at Columbia. He said that his treatment for fibromyalgia was to get his patients off all medications. I still have the trigger points, but I have no pain.
|Taking medicines makes my fibromyalgia worse.Yep, I’m sure it does. You have to get off everything, not just medications prescribed for fibromyalgia. Most people claim, “Oh, I can’t stop taking my [this-or-that]” but that’s nonsense. Most medications Americans take are to compensate for lousy lifestyle choices. You want to stop the pain? Then stop the drugs, eat healthy, get plenty of sleep, and start exercising.
Abortion and fibromyalgia
Can an abortion cause fibromyalgia?
I saw a doctor on the Catholic television station say that abortions cause fibromyalgia. Two of my friends and I, who have never had abortions but had severe fibromyalgia, found this laughable.
Is Ativan bad for someone with pneumonia?
Yes, it’s terrible. Do not take Ativan if you have any kind of respiratory illness. It is banned in Great Britain for this cause.
Is BiPAP better for sleep disorganized breathing then CPAP?
A CPAP is a continuous positive air pressure machine; a BiPAP is a bi-level positive air pressure machine. With a CPAP the pressure is set at one fixed point; a BiPAP alternates between two settings, one for inhalation and the other for exhalation. An auto BiPAP has a computer chip that re-sets the pressure with every breath you take. Some people, like me, have unstable sleep apnea. I went through years of hell until I got the auto BiPAP; nobody told me such a thing existed. PAP machines are not for the treatment of “disorganized” breathing; they are for the treatment of sleep apnea, a condition in which you repeatedly stop breathing while you sleep.
If you go to sleep lorazepam can kill you.
No, it will not. It will mess you up if you take it regularly, but it will not kill you.
