When you have fibromyalgia it seems like there are no answers. Doctors will say that you have to live with your pain. When it comes to this complicated condition you have to address the body as a whole. Questions must get answered and tests must be done. The first line of business is a thorough consultation and exam.
Symptoms of fibromyalgia include: Chronic fatigue, digestive problems, tender points, tiring easily, sleep disturbances, as well as stress and anxiety. And speaking of stress…What handles stress in the body are your adrenal glands. They are located on top of your kidneys. They are in charge of producing steroidal hormones that can help with pain, sleep and digestion. When one has adrenal fatigue it can cause many problems with the body like sleep difficulties, fatigue, and digestive problems. Adrenal fatigue must be ruled out!
Another aspect to evaluate is digestive problems. Due to toxins in our food, air, and water, our gut wall gets destroyed and can wreak havoc on digestion. If the digestive system is not functioning well you will not be able to absorb and utilize the nutrition from your food. It can also cause toxins to leak into your system and cause disease process. There are bacteria that can also cause trouble with the digestive tract. There are specific tests that can be ran to find out if you have this bacteria. This known bacteria is H. Pylori.
Due to postural situations, repetitive traumas, and nerve interference, function can be lost and can cause unwanted pain and inflammation throughout the body.
This is just to name a few situations that can be causing symptoms to be worse for a fibromyalgia patient.
