Does anyone have both fibromyalgia and myasthenia gravis?
I have myasthenia gravis which causes severe weakness andfibromyalgia which causes severe pain. Treating one affects the other. For example taking flexeril helps the pain of fibro but it causes me to have trouble talking and swallowing. To not treat the pain is out of the question because it's #10 pain. Suicidal pain has been a part of my life for twenty years. Please give me some feedback.

HiI don't have Myasthenia gravis, but I do know the severe pain of fibromyalgia. I have been disabled for 2 years, diagnosed 10 yrs ago. I also have been hospitalized for sever depression and attempted suicide due to the constant pain. I haven't found Flexeril very helpful for the pain although it does help the constant tight muscles in my neck and back. I also get trigger point injections and take opioid pain killers 4 times a day which helps alot, I take an antidepressant, an anti anxiety med, a sleep med along with the flexeril. If your not taking anything but the flexeril I would recommend that you see another doctor, your not being treated properly, I recommend a pain clinic, the doctors there are very familiar with Fybromyalgia. My prayers are with you good luck :) P.S. There are also some good web sites, type in chronic pain and search.
I promote a wellness company that have supplements that help with fibromyalgia and mysthenia gravis.
