Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME
Chronic pain is not all about the body, and it’s not all about the brain-it’s everything. Target everything. Take back your life. -Sean Mackey, MD, PHD, “Pain and the Brain”
I have grouped the two conditions together because they share similar characteristics such as muscle pain, sleep problems, brain fog etc. Additionally our protocol for both is also the same. You can read more about that on the NHS website at the link on the bottom of this page. Diagnosis is made based on these symptoms on the basis that other conditions have been ruled. I was diagnosed in 2009 as “maybe” having both conditions by two different doctors.
Symptoms of Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME
- Pain in various parts of the body
- extreme tiredeness
- difficulty sleeping
- (IBS) irritable bowel syndrome
- fast or irregular heartbeats
Then there are other conditions which proliferate as a result of these conditions to include anxiety, stress, and so on. For many what has been mentioned may feel like an over-simplification of this, at times, extremely debilitating condition. I apologise if this has been the case. I personally recall the times I lay in bed, trying not to move, in fear that the pain would begin. On many an occasion it was so powerful that I would end up in tears.
The good news is, that like me, you can resolve this. It does however, require effort and persistence. At the very least I strongly believe that by utilising the methods I show you, it will lead to a reduction in your symptoms.
