If you suffer from fibromyalgia, you know firsthand how debilitating and terrifying it can be. It’s important for you to know that there are solutions out there! Start healing now and start here.
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a mysterious condition characterized by chronic pain in the muscles and surrounding structures. Fibromyalgia is known as a syndrome rather than a disease. A syndrome refers to a fairly consistent pattern of symptoms observed in people with a medical disorder. FMS symptoms fluctuate from hour to hour and day to day. This differs from the term disease, which implies that all people with a given disorder have exactly the same problem resulting from the same underlying cause.
Two major complaints of people suffering from fibromyalgia are pain and fatigue. It is most commonly felt in the lower back, neck, shoulders, the back of the head, upper chest, and thighs, although any area or areas of the body may also be involved. The pain emanating from tendons, ligaments, and muscle tissue is usually tender to palpation (pressing with the fingers). The pain is usually described as throbbing, burning, shooting, or stabbing. It may become so severe that you feel unable to function or cope. Endurance and stamina are very poor, and the sufferer often feels exhausted and unable to concentrate.
Other symptoms that may accompany this condition include: sleep problems or insomnia, depression, poor memory and concentration, dizziness, headache, tingling of extremities, irritable bowel syndrome, irritable bladder (urgency and frequency of urination), Temporomandibular Joint Syndrome (TMJ), cold intolerance, and allergic reactions to drugs, chemicals, and environmental toxins. Not surprisingly fibromyalgia may also cause depression and anxiety.
You might wonder, “What is left?” The truth is that there isn’t much, because fibromyalgia affects almost every part of the human body.
The Conventional Medical Approach to Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is often misdiagnosed or mistreated. As a person with FMS, you look healthy and you pass medical lab tests with flying colors. Doctors most frequently find nothing wrong with you. They may suggest that you have either an inflammatory or a psychiatric condition. However, no evidence of inflammation or arthritis has been found, and it is now believed that depression and anxiety, when present, are more often the result than the cause of fibromyalgia. Knowing that you want a solution, a doctor will give a prescription to treat the symptoms of pain, depression, and/or the inability to sleep. This is the training of the conventional medical doctor. These symptomatic treatments may or may not provide temporary relief, and most definitely do not get to the source of the problem. Most of the prescribed drugs also have negative side effects.
When looking into the conventional medical treatments for fibromyalgia, there are a few very important questions to consider: With these treatments, are we improving the health and wellness of the body? Are we allowing the immune system to become stronger, or are we creating bigger problems for our health down the road by using these prescription methods to treat symptoms? Our advice is to treat the body as a complete system, rather than treating individual symptoms through conventional methods.
