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.

Persistant itch of right nipple, that has been present for a couple of months? No other symptom, just itch? No redness, crust, discharge, swelling. Have been on HRT patches, 75mg, recently incr/ 100mg, (estrogen) only due to excessive hot sweats, that i had never experienced, for months, didn t consider menopause, due to on HRT, my age. Have been on est only, for, maybe, 30yrs, due to inexplicable, erratic, mood swings, that i, & Doctors thought, hormonal?? In 2007, i was diagnosed with, rapid Cycling Bipolar!! So many years of disruption, to my life, huge financial loss, in Hypermanic states, depression, was diagnosed, in 1998!! The ups , i believed, were me, not depressd. But, so many years, on HRT??? Have not had a mammogram, or ultra sound, for maybe 13yrs ,as i have breast implants, since 1982, have been told, by Doctors, less risk of breast cancer?? A mammogram, in 1994, ruptured implant!! Did, continue checks, annually, but ultrasound. Last, 2001, then moved from Syd to Gold Coast, no checks?/ I think maybe, with what Bipolar has done, breast cancer, stupid i know, but, don t want to know. Far from an intelligent attitude, & writing this, maybe, since looking up causes, none, with added symptoms, make sense, relate, maybe, a little concerning?? Sensible option, have an ultra sound?? But, maybe no need?? Simple answer, just an itchy nipple?? I don t have a GP at the moment. So, could it be something to be concerned about, or nothing?? Annie
