Fibromyalgia Causes, symptoms, Treatment and Natural Home Remedies for Fibromyalgia

Author: drcharlesbuchar

Fibromyalgia is a condition in which one experiences severe pain in muscles. The muscle becomes stiff, tender, and achy. Improper sleep, several muscle-related diseases, cold and rainy weather, etc. are some of the causes of fibromyalgia. Patient suffering from fibromyalgia cannot move comfortably, as the muscular pain does not let them do so

Fibromyalgia Causes

While there is no known cause for fibromyalgia, recent research has revealed some new facts about the disease. One of the new discoveries is that people with fibromyalgia process pain differently. The level of chemical in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) called substance P, which transmits pain impulses to the brain, is three times higher in people with the disease than in those who do not have the condition. This likely causes someone with fibromyalgia to experience pain more intensely.

Other researchers believe fibromyalgia is caused by a lack of deep sleep. It is during stage 4 sleep that muscles recover from the prior day's activity, and the body refreshes itself. Sleep studies show that as people with fibromyalgia enter stage 4 sleep, they become more aroused and stay in a lighter form of sleep. Even though they may sleep for a long period of time, they get poor quality sleep. Also, when researchers took normal volunteers and did not allow them to enter into stage 4 sleep, they developed symptoms similar to those of fibromyalgia.

Signs and Symptoms

1.    Chronic, widespread pain that lasts three months or more, with no clear cause, combined with tenderness in at least 11 of 18 well-defined tender point sites on the body

2.    Pains, aches, and stiffness in several muscle groups, joints, and in all four quadrants of the body

3.    Pain that moves from one part of the body to another, most commonly felt in the neck, chest, arms, legs, hips, and back

4.    Pain that may be variously characterized as deep aching, radiating, gnawing, shooting, or burning

5.    Body aches and stiffness upon awakening

6.    Headaches and jaw pain

Home Remedies for Fibromyalgia

1.    Reduce stress. Develop a plan to avoid or limit overexertion and emotional stress. Allow yourself time each day to relax. That may mean learning how to say no without guilt. But try not to change your routine completely. People who quit work or drop all activity tend to do worse than those who remain active. Try stress management techniques, such as deep-breathing exercises or meditation.

2.    Get enough sleep. Because fatigue is one of the main characteristics of fibromyalgia, getting sufficient sleep is essential. In addition to allotting enough time for sleep, practice good sleep habits, such as going to bed and getting up at the same time each day and limiting daytime napping.

3.    Exercise regularly. At first, exercise may increase your pain. But doing it regularly often decreases symptoms. Appropriate exercises may include walking, swimming, biking and water aerobics. A physical therapist can help you develop a home exercise program. Stretching, good posture and relaxation exercises also are helpful.

4.    Pace yourself. Keep your activity on an even level. If you do too much on your good days, you may have more bad days.

5.    Maintain a healthy lifestyle. Eat healthy foods. Limit your caffeine intake. Do something that you find enjoyable and fulfilling every day.

    is this normal for an ssa doc?
    The medical evaluation I was sent to today was completely inappropriate. The doctor/staff spent about 5 minutes with me. The evaluation consisted of writing down a couple symptoms and doing a basic exam of height, weight, eyesight, blood, blood pressure, heart and lung. The doctor did NOT do any assessment of my signs and symptoms related to fibromyalgia, arthritis, or brain injury. He did not even seem to know what fibromyalgia was as he hesitated when saying the word.

    is this a normal ssa evaluation? how can they use this to determine my eligibility or to deny me for that fact?

    i am trying to get to a QUALIFIED doc on my own.
    its osteo arthritis due to a knee and foot injury not being treated appropriately…

    needs to be xrayed/mri….he didn’t assess function at all

    i am not saying the limited eval he did was not needed–but he left out anything that could tell him anything..

    and i have already had these blood tests and the results were sent to SSA
    the fms diagnosis has been confirmed by numerous doctors in the past including a top researcher..i am even in his book as i participated in a medical study..those records were provided..he is not able to see me as a private pt….

    blood tests alone don’t prove fms–you need to do a tenderpoint exam and imaging studies…

    i have not had a private doctor who who take the time to actually talk to me in 10 years…this ssa doc did even less..

    a doc needs to verify the severity of symptoms and functional limitations
    this was just a PHYSICAL EXAM

    he did not understand the details
    if this is what always happens all us taxpayers shoudl be screaming that they are paying for that junk—the exam was pointless..did nothing to verify my disability–they aare NOT sending me to a specialist..that was the extent of their eval
    and if you think using caps for one line is yelling–you have issues..YA doesn’t give much choice to emphasize

    people were using caps to emphasize long before it was called yelling
    and to clarify–fibro is only one condition–i had it for 30 years..but i also have brain injury, osteoarthritis from medical malpractice–the docs not treating the injuries right) and a couple other things..

    something went really wrong neurologically a year and a half ago..but the docs just keep acting like idiots..i’ve beenn so sick at times i can’t get to the bathroom or sit up to eat

      The Physician was following correct medical protocol when he/she drew blood. Certain blood tests can determine which type of arthritis you have in which SSA needs to know. Also, there are certain types of arthritis that can cause blindness in which the Physician was following correct medical protocol when he/she checked your eyesight.
      The Physician was following correct medical protocol when he/she drew blood in order to rule out various medical conditions that can be mistaken for fibromyalgia in which SSA needs to know in whether you actually have fibromyalgia or if you have another medical condition that has been mistaken for fibromyalgia.

      All of the physical exam is a standard medical procedure to access your general health for SSA records.

      SSA might send you to various specialized Physicians that deals with arthritis, brain injuries, and fibromyalgia so you can be medically examined further for SSA records.

      EDIT: Yes, I do know that blood tests alone do not prove fibromyalgia but blood tests are done to rule out other medical conditions. Thank you for telling me what type of
      arthritis you have.

      EDIT: It could be that the only reason why you was given a basic medical examination is because all of your previous medical tests/medical exams results has already been sent to SSA in which SSA does not want to repeat your previous medical tests/medical exams.

      EDIT: Yes, I did completely understand the details based on your initial posting in which I gave you medical reasons to help you to understand on why the SSA Physician did in what he/she done to you. I also gave you a reason why SSA might not want to repeat your previous medical tests/medical exams for your Disabilities. Thank you for giving additional information to your initial posting.

      Lyme Disease ( commonly misspelled as Lime or Lyme’s ) symptoms may show up fast, with a bang, or very slowly and innocuously. There may be The Lyme Rash
      initial flu-like symptoms with fever, headache, nausea, jaw pain, light sensitivity, red eyes, muscle ache and stiff neck. Many write this off as a flu and because the nymph stage of the tick is so tiny many do not recall a tick bite. The classic rash may only occur or have been seen in as few as 30% of cases (many rashes in body hair and indiscreet areas go undetected). Treatment in this early stage is critical.

      If left untreated or treated insufficiently symptoms may creep into ones life over weeks, months or even years. They wax and wane and may even go into remission only to come out at a later date…even years later.
      The real problem is that all those symptoms are commom to several diseases infectious or not.

    could i have fibromyalgia?
    im only 24 and i have constant pain in my hands wrists and arms, i thought it to be cts becasue i use my hands so much. but i also get severe migraine headaches, have what seems to be constant back and shoulder pain. i visit a chiropractor and it helped some at first but doesnt seem to anymore. my right shoulder always feels like someone is stabing me.sometimes i feel dizzy all of a sudden, and my eyesight has changed. sometimes my hands swell also.i feel sick on my stomach alot as well. ive had 2 kids and i know pregnancy effects alot of things, but i think for my age i feel really bad, the drs say that cant find anything wrong with me, but it hurts badly. the aleve and hot/cold packs dont work. im not sure what else to try.

      Fibromyalgia is difficult to diagnose. It’s usually only diagnosed after all other diseases with similar symptoms and signs have been ruled out. (Things like rheumatoid arthritis, lyme disease, lupis, mutiple sclerosis…ect.) It can be a very long and frustrating path to diagnosis for one who truly does suffer from it. I would suggest being vocal with your doctor about finding the reason behind your signs and symptoms.
