Fibromyalgia is when a person feels body-wide pain and/or achiness. This pain is chronic (a.k.a. it’s been around for more than three months) and it’s not related to any other diagnosable condition. It’s more common in women, especially from middle age onwards.
Fibromyalgia is often linked to chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)—but there are important differences between the two conditions. While people with fibromyalgia often feel fatigued, their chief complaint is the pain that they can’t seem to get rid of. Classic painkillers rarely have an effect on fibromyalgia. People with CFS may have muscle ache, but it’s not the body-wide pain that’s seen in fibromyalgia.
Other symptoms that accompany fibromyalgia are stiffness, headaches, sleep problems, depression, anxiety, brain fog and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Fibromyalgia is a complex condition, and it’s not yet fully understood. However, there are a few things to consider:
A study of 84 people with fibromyalgia found that 100% of them also had small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO).
Thyroid dysfunction Suboptimal levels of thyroid hormones are often observed in cases of fibromyalgia.
Eating foods to which we’re sensitive can activate the immune system, contributing to inflammation.
Viruses, heavy metals and even mould can damage the mitochondria, the energy-producing factors of the cell. This leads to fatigue.
A feeling of lack of safety, particularly in early life, can lead to a state of hypervigilance, which makes pain worse.
This doesn’t cause fibromyalgia, but excess sugar, processed foods and trans fats can worsen inflammatory processes in the body.
Healthpath was the best thing I’ve ever done! I struggled for 2 years before I found them, and I couldn’t be more happy knowing I now have a plan going forward.
Amazing company. They look at you as an individual. This is the way medicine should be practiced, instead of just handing out things to plaster over your symptoms.
Completely impressed with the service I received from HealthPath, very easy to follow information neatly presented and their advice seems to be helping. Thank you!
