Can’t Do Much Now
Having trouble getting out of bed in the morning? Are you stiff and sore, even though you didn’t do much labor the day before? Well, you might be suffering from what the physicians are calling Fibromyalgia. This condition attacks the muscles and joints in the body causing pain and limiting your everyday mobility. As of right now though, there is no cure for fibro pain and symptoms but you can use a fibromyalgia treatment option. There are many of these ranging from medications you can take orally to eating right and exercising. Yes doing normal things that you should can be the help you need for your fibro aches and pains.
Other Issues Come About
When you get fibromyalgia, you will become more susceptible to other side diseases that can hurt you as well; two common ones are rheumatoid arthritis and restless legs syndrome. The cause of restless legs syndrome remains mostly a mystery. It is characterized by uncomfortable pins-and-needles sensations in the legs and the irresistible urge to move the legs. Moving the legs seems to temporarily alleviate the intense feelings. However, people with restless legs syndrome tend to get poor sleep in general and to experience severe fatigue like that felt by many people with fibromyalgia.
Unlike the more common osteoarthritis, which is caused by age-related wear and tear, rheumatoid arthritis can occur at any age and is caused by inflammation and destruction of the lining of the joints. The painful, swollen, and stiff joints characteristic of rheumatoid arthritis are also common complaints for people with fibromyalgia. In addition, rheumatoid arthritis can strike in the same joints on both sides of the body, similar to the symmetrical tender points used to diagnose fibromyalgia, and can cause fatigue and morning stiffness.
Schedule, Plan And Be OK With None Of It Getting Done
This is one of the hardest lessons anyone who has fibromyalgia has to learn. Often individuals suffering from Fibromyalgia feel completely overwhelmed with even the simplest tasks of daily life. This feeling can be avoided by keeping a schedule for simple tasks such as household chores or tasks. Another idea is to create a schedule of tasks that can be completed on a daily, weekly, monthly, or annual basis. Doing a little bit at a time becomes much easier when it’s planned out ahead of time. Some days will be worse than others when it comes to the pain and fatigue that must be dealt with. Stocking up on meals that are easy to prepare, keeping disposable kitchen items, and being willing to ask for help when it’s needed are a must. And above all, be willing to make a little change; it can make a huge difference in your life as you are dealing with Fibromyalgia. Sometimes plan and schedules just won’t work out as well as you would have liked them to. But look up and smile as it is not the end of the world.
Plan On Relief
Now you don’t just have to sit back and do nothing to actively aid in your fibro relief treatment. You can take some supplements which have been proven to relieve fibro pain better and more efficiently with little to no side effects. Here are some of them now:
- SAMe – This particular supplement is a synthetic form of a compound which the body naturally produces. It is needed for immune function and plays a key role in the forming of cartilage and DNA. Research has shown that SAMe can lessen the symptoms of chronic pain as well as boost an individual’s spirits (good for those also experiencing depression).
- Capsaicin – When Capsaicin is used on the tender points of a person who suffers from Fibromyalgia a decrease in pain has been notated in some research.
- Ribose – Fibromyalgia is often caused because of tight muscles. Ribose can help to ease this pain because Ribose can help to loosen those muscles and help to improve the debilitating symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
- Magnesium – Can aid in relief from Fibromyalgia because when taken as an additional supplement it can help to reduce the muscle spasms, weakness, and back pain that are commonly associated with Fibromyalgia.
- B- Complex Vitamins – All of the B- Complex vitamins (Folic Acid, Riboflavin, and Thiamine) can help to lessen inflammation that often causes the painful symptoms, these vitamins can also help to maintain muscle tone which is an added bonus to those with Fibromyalgia.
