My 26 year old daughter went thru horrible trauma and now has fibromyalgia. I noticed that last year when on antibiotics she had less pain, a month a go she was put on a Z=Pack and went for 10 days pain free! After the 10 days she is very disapointed to be back in pain. Any ideas or suggestions for what we should tell her doctor?
Yours is a very interesting observation. Fibromyalgia is believed to be triggered by one or more stressors. One of the stressors, identified as a potential trigger, is infection. The citation that follows is for an excellent article titled Fibromyalgia: Update on Mechanisms and Management, which recently appeared in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology, 2007 April, Volume 13, Number 2, pages 102-109. I suggest you share your observation and the above citation with your daughter's physician.
