Fibromyalgia Causes Suffering and Confusion
Fibromyalgia treatments can be a maze of many different options and ways to rid yourself from the agonizing effects of the fibromyalgia symptoms. Most fibromyalgia patients choose the ever popular prescription medications which do have an effect of your fibromyalgia symptoms but they also bring with them some frustrating side effects which are unneeded and unwanted. I recommend using a more natural or holistic approach to your fibromyalgia treatment. This will allow you to minimize the symptoms and occurrences of your fibromyalgia episodes as well as keep you safe from things going from bad to worse. These natural treatments could range from massage therapy to curbing supplemental deficiencies. Chiropractic adjustment can be very holistic and effective when combating the fibromyalgia condition. Many ailments, not just fibromyalgia, have been cured or at least lessened by the consistent use of a chiropractor. Healing can be found in the spine and the free movements of the vertebras; this is why getting an adjustment can minimize the occurrences of the fibromyalgia episodes in your life.
Many Suffer And Few Relieve
The fibromyalgia epidemic affects millions of Americans each year and widely regarded as one of the top reasons for people calling in sick and missing work throughout the world. It is caused by triggers which are many times physiological in nature and mostly occur upon waking up in the morning. Fibromyalgia have the distinct ability to disable their victims and incapacitate them for several days as the pain can become more than overwhelming. People have tried to use over the counter medications like Motrin or Tylenol to help minimize their fibromyalgia symptoms but those pills just don’t pack the punch the fibromyalgia needs to stop hurting them. So you must resort to an official fibromyalgia treatment option such as acupuncture, chiropractic adjustment, herbal supplements or prescription meds like sleep medications, pain meds or depression meds. Many fibro patients don’t get good sleep so some might think that instead of the root being fibromyalgia, it could be 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.
Fibro fog is the term used when fibromyalgia disrupts an individual’s ability to think clearly. Fibromyalgia can affect a person’s ability to concentrate and with his or her short term memory. This type of memory loss is an issue for some fibromyalgia sufferers and causes complications with one’s work and personal life. Also, migraine headaches can be debilitating and only add to the limitations and the frustration that comes with fibromyalgia. A migraine headache if felt on a reoccurring basis is known as a neurological condition and can cause and create chemical changes in the body that produce further symptoms. As a migraine develops the blood vessels in the brain begin to expand and their expansion causes harmful chemicals to be released into the brain which in return causes the brains arteries to come under attack. The brains arteries only line of defense is to release symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, blurred vision and diarrhea.
Better Than A Pill
Most fibromyalgia patients that choose to take the pharmaceutical approach due so to the ease of use and the convenience that comes with swallowing a pill. Though one might originally think that the pharmaceutical approach is the safest and most effective route to take they often find their original theory incorrect once the side effect begin to manifest. As the side effects begin to take over the body and render one miserable and helpless, so the patient begins to consider other treatment options that might be safer.
