Fibromyalgia, you’re not imagining the pain!

Solving the mystery to your pain!You’ve gone to the doctor and seen specialist, their prescriptions haven’t helped you.  The mystery as to why you have been suffering with:
* Chronic muscle pain, muscle spasms or tightness
* Weakness in the limbs, and leg cramps
* Moderate or severe fatigue and decreased energy
* Insomnia or waking up feeling just as tired as when you went to sleep
* Stiffness upon waking or after staying in one position for too long.  

These are just a few of the signs and symptoms of your imagination, no it’s not,  but it could be symptoms of Fibromyalgia. 

If you’ve seen your physician or specialist I hope this wouldn’t be the first time you heard of this disorder. The definition of Fibromyalgia “A chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness in localized areas”. 

If you were diagnosed, something you may not know. Fibromyalgia is known as the “great imitator” because it can mimic other disorders.  However there are subtle differences so knowledge is power and learning more about them will help figure out those differences so you can take the next step towards health.

As if that wasn’t bad enough people with fibromyalgia are also at greater risk of developing a number of other disorders,  irritable bowel syndrome, bruxism etc.. many of which can exacerbate your current fibromyalgia symptoms.

Lastly but by no means least,  If the condition is not diagnosed and treated early, symptoms can go on indefinitely, or they may disappear for months and then recur.  Please see a doctor to get diagnosed but be armed with the power of knowledge, in the mean time.

I am writing to let you know there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  You don’t have to continue suffering, here are three ways you can help yourself:

Learn more! Understanding what is happening to you it becomes easier to cope with and address. Also knowing that can greatly relieve any anxiety which leads me to the next tip

Reduce stress! Reducing stress can help with muscle relaxation,  need I say more?

Exercise! Low-impact aerobic exercises, such as swimming, cycling, walking, can be very effective. Please note with any new exercise program, you may have a mild increase in aching in the first two weeks. This increased aching is especially likely to occur if you have not been exercising and the muscles are de-conditioned. Applications of cold packs to sore muscles and tendons after exercising can help relieve muscle inflammation and soreness.

Hope this helps get you back on the road to health!
