Chronic pain is the most dominating symptom of Fibromyalgia. In most people it affects the entire body, although it may start in one area – such as the neck and shoulders – and spread to other areas over a period of time.
The name, Fibromyalgia, means: pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the tissues and tendons), and is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue.
You (or someone you know) may be experiencing moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion that results from the flu or lack of sleep. Sometimes the fatigue is more of a problem than the pain.
Headaches, especially tension and migraine headaches, are common in Fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating, alternating constipation, bladder spasms, and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Your skin and blood circulation can be sensitive to temperature changes, resulting in temporary changes in skin color.
No matter how long you have been dealing with Fibromyalgia, it’s too long. Some may suffer only minor symptoms, while others (perhaps you or a loved one) feel the debilitating effects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life, making even simple daily activities almost impossible.
Scientific research shows that a major causal factor to Fibromyalgia is gut barrier dysfunction and chronic infection. We have the tools in this office to determine if YOUR case is caused by these factors. If it is, we are highly trained in optimizing gut and immune function and restoring balance. This restoration of balance leads to reduced/eliminated pain, increased energy levels, and a return to life at optimal.
We feel our Fibromyalgia program is second to none.
