Fighting Off The Fibro Symptoms
Treatments are difficult to nail down when trying to find the right one for your incurable condition of fibromyalgia. People have tried all sorts of methods but mainly prescriptions because they are the easiest to get ahold of and utilize on a regular basis. Yet for fibromyalgia, there are no designed meds, only meds for other conditions that seem to fit the fibromyalgia condition. This can be problematic though since side effects from the wrong use of meds often occur. I would recommend using a more natural or holistic method of fibromyalgia treatment such as: acupuncture, massage therapy, chiropractic adjustment or herbal supplements from Mother Earth herself. The use of acupuncture can be quite effective as acupuncture can relieve many pains and symptoms brought on by fibromyalgia and other conditions. It restores the flow of healing energy by inserting tiny needles into specific pressure points along the body. This technique has been used to heal for centuries but before we go into detail about the other treatments, we will need to gather some more info on the condition of fibromyalgia itself.
Fibromyalgia Causes Fatigue
When trying to fight back against the fibromyalgia condition, there are some of tricks of the trade that patients can use or act on so that their fibromyalgia symptoms do not overtake their life and incapacitate them on a consistent basis. First, a fibromyalgia sufferer should write out or journal their life for a month or so to help determine certain triggers for their condition as well as learn how some treatments might not help them while others do help. Secondly, fibromyalgia is notorious for sucking the energy right out of the person through the exorbitant amount of pain that is inflicted on them throughout the fibromyalgia process. Without energy, the body can’t fight against the fibromyalgia and therefore gives up on the endeavor. So to help your body out, you need to have a regular dose of Riboflavin AKA Vitamin B2; this supplement is found naturally but in order to combat the fibromyalgia you need a more than normal dose of it. Riboflavin is a key component in building and maintaining energy throughout the body. Thirdly, a careful look into the patient’s activities and pass-times can give insight into some of the lifestyle changes that person might need to make in order to gain control over their fibromyalgia syndrome.
Fatigue On The Job
Fatigue is one of the greatest symptoms, other than pain, that individuals who suffer from Fibromyalgia complain about. It is important for adequate rest to be obtained when and where possible, and for energy saving to be a standard of life. If a person’s job or activities leaves them with little or no energy then consideration for changing the way work, commitments, projects, hobbies, as well as family or friends effects their energy levels.
Irritable bowel syndrome is a disorder that causes pain to be felt in the abdominal area. Irritable bowel syndrome causes changes in bowel movements while producing other symptoms that are hard to manage. The symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome can range from mild to severe; the symptoms differ from patient to patient. These symptoms must be present and have had duration for a minimum of at least three months. When a bowel movement is had the pain can lessen but that does not mean that the pain will not come back. Individuals with irritable bowel syndrome constantly battle with constipation and diarrhea and a loss of appetite. Some of the other symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome would include:
- Abdominal Pain
- Feeling Of Being Full
Calm Received Thru A Massage
The two main symptoms that are presented by the condition of Fibromyalgia are fatigue and pain. Massage therapy can aid in lessening both of these symptoms by helping the Fibromyalgia suffer to be able to experience less pain, obtain more sleep, and also to help relax some of the tightened and stiff muscles that can contribute to much of the pain. Research has proven that the use of massage therapy as a form of Fibromyalgia treatment can help Fibromyalgia sufferers experience deeper levels of sleep and lessen levels of pain and fatigue. The way that massage therapy accomplishes this is by using the different forms of massage to help oxygenate the body as a whole which can decrease the severity of symptoms that a Fibromyalgia sufferer will experience. Massage therapy can help Fibromyalgia sufferers find relief from their symptoms specifically by:
- Improving Sleep
- Reducing Swelling, Pain, and Stiffness in the Joints & Muscles
- Decreasing Anxiety & Stress
- Increasing Blood Circulation
- Increasing Flexibility
