fibromyalgia & growth hormone deficiency

Went back to see the doctor that diagnosed me with CFS & sent me to my Rhumetologist. She used to work at the Fibromyalgia Clinic at OSHU which is an amazing Hospital for everything! I figured it wouldn't hurt to go back & talk to her.
She seemed alittle irritate my Rhum hasn't ran blood work recently. I guess we are supposed to get it done yearly. Then she ordered x-rays on my neck because I wrecked a quad about 4 yrs ago & with fibro, deal with a lot of neck pain. When I wrecked I didn't have insurance so never had it checked out.
Anyhow, she thinks I might have growth hormone deficiency. With thyroid issues, can't lose weight, derealization, nausea & vomiting then pain & fatigue is only getting worst. She told me to look up: fibromyalgia growth hormone deficiency & it really makes sense... Btw, I'm 5' 2" lol do wouldnt be surprised. But really this Growth Hormone is what repairs our bodies while sleeping. It has a lot to do with our health.
She ran tests including that one. She's going to look at my MRI & I may have to have a new one since its been awhile. She's also looking at sending me to the Fibromyalgia Clinic at OSHU! I really think this appointment went well!
Btw, this Growth Hormone is locate in the pituitary gland which I found has a connection to Derealization which I have had 24/7 for 13 yrs. Also ha allot to do with thyroid among other things.
You can take growth hormones which has managed to lessen pain & fatigue, but really expensive. Curious what my tests will show...

Re: fibromyalgia & growth hormone deficiency

Sounds like it went very well . Glad that you have more answers and would be awesome if you go to the clinic. Hopefully you are able to function better.

Re: fibromyalgia & growth hormone deficiency

Tori, that all sounds very interesting. When I have more time later I'll google that and do some reading. That clinic could be just what you need to get yourself to a manageable place.

Re: fibromyalgia & growth hormone deficiency

Thank You
I guess this growth hormone is very common with fibro & doesn't hurt to be tested for it...
With the neck issue I remembered Something from my childhood I'd forgotten... I was around 9 & my step dad knocked the breath out of me. He did that a few times but that last time I remembered I couldn't breath at first & when I could, it hurt to breath. My upper back, shoulders, neck & chest hurt really bad for around 3 months. It had eventually went away.
Then with the quad accident a few years ago it's no wonder I have the neck, back & shoulder pain. I'm interested to see what the X-rays will show...

Anyhow, I really feel we got somewhere yesterday & really happy about it!
