Pain is the most prominent symptom of Fibromyalgia. It usually 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.
Fibromyalgia is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue. The name, Fibromyalgia, means pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the ligaments and tendons).
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 and loose stool, 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.
Have you suffered with Fibromyalgia symptoms for a few months, a few years, or too many years to even mention?
Some may suffer only minor symptoms, while others feel the debilitating effects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life. Even simple, daily activities become almost impossible.
Fibromyalgia is not a muscle problem, it is a neurologic and metabolic problem.
The latest scientific evidence shows that specific parts of the brain, and imbalances in the immune and endocrine (hormone) systems in conjunction with a Leaky Gut cause the symptoms that plague fibromyalgia sufferers:
- Pain all over (burning, cramping, stiffness)
- Fatigue that never lets up
- Brain Fog (memory loss)
- Stomach and Intestine Pain
Because Fibromyalgia is not just a single problem, a woman suffering with Fibromyalgia can have multiple problems with things like:
- Food intolerance
- Brain weakness (can be right brain or left brain, or an over firing Midbrain)
- Blood sugar control
- Hidden infections: viral, candida, yeast, mold, parasites
- Cortisol, thyroid and estrogen/progesterone imbalances
These are Fibromyalgia’s complicating factors. Patients must be tested for these and management protocols determined for all findings. This all must be done at the same time, or the fibromyalgia treatment will fail.
What makes our office different is that we look at all aspects of our patient’s health; including their structure, their neurology, their immune system, their hormones, and the rest of their body chemistry.
Once the cause or causes are identified, we work with a unique combination of Brain Based Therapy, gentle specific chiropractic adjustments, Metabolic Stabilization, and Functional Clinical Nutrition to dramatically improve the health of our patients.
