What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome characterized by soft muscle and joint pain. There are 18 criteria that physicians use to diagnose fibromyalgia; these have to do with 18 areas of the body that are "trigger points." To make the official diagnosis of fibromyalgia, a patient must have at least 11 trigger points. Fibromyalgia is thought by physicians to be a form of rheumatism, but it does not respond to traditional treatments for rheumatism!.The exact cause of fibromyalgia isn't clearly understood, but researchers have found that there MAY be some association of fibromyalgia with (1) a traumatic emotional experience (2) stress and/or depression, (3) deficiencies in magnesium, phosphate and oxygen in the body. To make it even more complicated, fibromyalgia very often is referred to as "The Terrible Three," referring to fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and acute dryness in the eyes and throat. If a person has one of these conditions, he/she probably has, or will have, the other two! Universally, the main symptoms of fibromyalgia are pain and stiffness in soft muscle tissue and joints, chronic aching, sleep disturbances, fatigue, stress/anxiety and depression. Unfortunately, there is no cure for fibromyalgia. But patients can be treated for its symptoms by a physician.

Is skin affected by fibro? My forearms are always swollen (edema) and red as if burned by the sun. As a matter of fact, when I asked the doctor, he told me to stop driving with my arm out the window. Hmmm.....right arm too? Driving in England? LOL Skin is rough to the touch and I look like one o

Tender Skin

Fibromyalgia affects people differently. Skin color and tender touch of the skin is a common symptom.

Many Fibromites describe as their "skin hurting" when in a flare. Sometimes even wearing certain fabrics and clothing makes the skin more sensitive.

A suggestion is to find a doctor who really understands about Fibromyalgia.

I read an article about a chiropractor that claims he can help fibromyalgia. He say`s it has something to do with a trauma to your neck. Have you heard of this before and do you know if it would be helpful?

Chiropractor Care and FMS

Chiropractor care can help the symptoms of Fibromyalgia due to regular adjustments. Fibromyalgia pains come from the build of toxins within the body.

When a chiropractor manipulates and adjust the spine, he releases these toxins into the blood stream. After any chiropractic or massage therapy, water needs to be drank to flush the body of these toxins which are released.

The neck is where most people who their tensionbut over adjusting is not good either. Find a chiropractor who is familar with Fibromyalgia since over adjusting can cause worse symptoms and pains.

I think I have candida. Can consuming beer bring this on?

Candida and Beer

Candida is a yeast infection that affects the entire body and the blood. Consuming beer definitely can bring Candida to the surface of the body and cause symptoms.

There is a blood test which is conducted by a doctor. They draw a few viles of blood and then send it out to a lab which mixes the blood with the different yeast causing chemicals.

Beer contains high levels of yeast. My suggestion is to stop drinking beer and seek more information about cleansing your body.
