I was wondering if anyone else out there in fibroland has constatnt dizziness & a heavy feeling head? I take alot of ibuprofin & was wondering if it coulf be from those? Its like I never feel fully awake. I drink 3 or 4 cups of tea in the morning but it does not really make a difference in feeling awake. Arrggh.........just one more funky feeling in this messed up body of mine!
I hope everyone is having a low- pain & happy day,
Denise

NeNe_11,

I too have alot of problems with dizziness..I also have a feeling like my brain actually flutters..I know it sounds strange..but it's true..It tends to happen worse when I'm in a really bad flare..like yesterday..with extreme weakness too..

At first I thought maybe it was my meds..but remembering back I had this before I was dx and before I was on meds..I wonder if it's just one more problem of Fibro...any suggestions anyone?

I thought the dizziness may be from the various meds as well.

I was just wondering why you are taking Ibuprophen? Do you have inflammation? Ibuprophen is really hard on your stomach and liver. Please be careful with it. Are you taking anything else other than Motrin?

I take them for daily headaches. I have been taken them all of my life. I know they are tough on the stomach & liver but I cant stand the headaches.

I take the following:propranolol, nortriptyline, zolpidem, gabapentin daily. I take maxalt to stop migraines as needed. Once in a while I take a tramodol.
