Brief Answer:
Part of fibromyalgia.

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Welcome to HCM.
Muscular spasms are a part of fibromyalgia. Since when have you started lyrics? These spasms may resolve once the lyrica start showing its effects.

Hope this answers your query.
Thanks.

Hi, I am a 57 year old female who had a hysterectomy at age 28 due to 2 Class 4 paps. I am an RN and was than employed by the OB-GYN. The doctor suggested it. I have not taken hormone replacements. I have seen 2 doctors in the last 7-8 months, I know I have vaginal dryness but I know bleed when I wipe and burn to open areas. There is a slight itch which I took 2 doses of Diflucan. My girlfriend who is an ER nurse looked today and said it looked like I have cellulitis. It hhas kept me up thru the night and I am very uncomfortable.I have called the Bioidentical Hormone replacement therapy md s. None take insurance, it is all self pay, which I can not afford, My daughter is a breat cancer survivor, which is one reason I avoided hormones. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank You

I had a a bad bout with diverticulitis a week ago. Hospitalized 24hrs, got IV flagyl amd cipro and sent home with both. Flagyl 500 mg every 8hrs cipro 500 mg every 12 hrs. As well as a low fiber diet. Since have been terribly constipated and my the night sweats . Was told to take mir a lax and Phillips 2x a day for relief but really no relief after two days. Although almost pain free very tired from night sweats and scared as to why constipated and such high meds. I think I have had episodes before of this issue but nothing flared up like this time. Have had three CT scans with contrast in one yr for pain and a kidney stone and this one showed the diverticulitisthis time in ER. So funny did not show up before.
