FIBROMYALGIA Part 3: All In Your Head?

Breakthrough in NeuroScience Offers New Hope to Millions of Fibromyalgia Sufferers-Without the Use of Drugs and Without Drug Side-Effects!

 

Fibromyalgia is a common, chronic medical disorder characterized by widespread pain and often coupled with other symptoms such as fatigue, disturbed sleep, chronic headaches, and other ailments. Depending on whose statistics you read (National Institutes of Health, National Women’s Health Information Center, American College of Rheumatology, etc.), as many as 4-8 million adults suffer with Fibromyalgia. However, since approximately 30 million Americans suffer with “chronic, generalized pain unrelated to a structural or inflammatory cause”, the actual number of those suffering may be much higher.

Throughout most of the twentieth century, many physicians considered Fibromyalgia to be purely a psychological condition (i.e., “It’s all in your head”). Patients complained of pain (along with many other symptoms) and doctors were unable to find anything wrong. So, most either dismissed the condition (again, “It’s all in your head”) or reluctantly diagnosed it “by default” when they couldn’t find anything else that might be responsible for the patient’s condition.

Eventually, the number of patients became too large to ignore. In 1987, the American Medical Association (AMA) finally recognized Fibromyalgia as an illness and cause of disability. In 1990, the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) provided diagnostic criteria for the disorder. Even though the illness has now been officially recognized by the medical community, and is slowly gaining some respect, things are still difficult for the average patient, who suffers for at least five years and is often shuffled between rheumatologists, neurologists, internists, hematologists, and a variety of other specialists before she finally receives her diagnosis (80-90% of those who suffer are women).

If you can relate to this, please don’t be discouraged! In what follows we will give you some important, new information which can give many who suffer with Fibromyalgia cause for real hope. Here’s why we say this… Read the Complete Article
