Does anyone else have Fibromyalgia?

  • I know I have mentioned before, but I have Fibromyalgia. I was DX'd with it at age 23. I was a competitive Figure Skater at the time.  Anyway...I tend to get muscle spasms, ususally in my left shoulder is the worst. I had to take Tramadol, Gabapentin and Flexeril last night to help with the spasm and pain. Today I just took the tramadol so  I can do my workout.  I  NOT take the muscle relaxant as I am concerned it could adversely affect my workout today.


    Does anyone else have this issue and if so how did you manage it while continuing...I don't want to find out I am hindering my efforts.



  • Yikes! I don't have this, but it doesn't sound too comfortable. I would suggest staying away from muscle relaxants though, as I can see it harming your muscles while you are lifting heavier weights. I would ask your doctor-  Maybe it won't be a problem, but a professional's opinion is worth the hassle- especially when dealing with your body.

  • Sorry, I forgot to respond in the last thread but my mom has been doing the program fairly successfully, she has lost 25+ lbs but has not reported any substantial relief of the symptoms.
