Fibromyalgia Symptoms - an unpopular approach that is changing lives every day.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms

an unpopular approach.

Fibromyalgia symptoms are home to some 6 million people in the United States making it the third most common rheumatological disorder in America. This syndrome affects women more than men and can affect and be affected by menstruation, pregnancy and menopause and all a whole host of other issues. There is hope for the common fatigue and pain that seem to settle into 18 (+/-) tender points.

These fibromyalgia tender points. generally involve 18 most common areas of increased pain verified through various studies over a long period of time. These points can help doctors in making the correct diagnosis as fibromyalgia sufferers consistently have pain in many of these areas. To be diagnosed with this syndrome, you need to experience 11 of the 18 tender points listed below. Although these points can vary slightly from chart to chart, they tend to be most prominent where muscles come together in groups. Knowledge is power and in the case of fibromyalgia, hope for everyone struggling with this disorder.

Many with the symptoms of fibromyalgia also suffer from sleep problems and restless leg syndrome to the point that they have chronic fatigue syndrome as well.

These symptoms often begin in young adult hood, can disappear or become chronic. Prior infection to the influenza virus seems to predispose humans at a later date.

Recent studies are suggesting that fibromyalgia is set in motion by unfortunate circumstances of conception! When intercourse takes place in high stress environments such as rape or unloving demands for sex etc., and a baby is conceived, because of the surrounding emotional trauma, the fetus' reticular activating system is set on constant high alert - a sort of fight or flight. This trauma becomes locked into the body and only builds over time until myofascial release treatment begins to unlock the muscle memory of the past and present.

Women are relational human beings, thus being affected more by fibromyalgia symptoms as they try to sort through life in an emotional way that many men don't. We all tend to stuffing our emotions which can literally solidify our bodies over time. Many of our service men and women returning from the trauma of war are trapped in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder - or PTSD - the body's muscle memory simply frozen in times of trauma and ultimate survival. Many PTSD symptoms can manifest like fibromyalgia symptoms. Fortunately, our returning service men and women can get free myofascial release treatment. Read more about the In One Peace Project to see how you can benefit.

As we move into our mid to late 20's all the underlying tension on the muscles (the fight or flight tendency) or wear and tear over time becomes noticeable as the uptight tendency keeps the muscles in a constant high state of tension that eventually creates micro or mini tendonitis. Our fascia tightens with every step we take synching our once fluid body's in a straight jacket of pain and dysfunction.

Fibromyalgia symptoms are all closely related between mind and body. Emotional issues such as depression and anxiety are very common and often affect the sleep as well. Because myofascial release treats the whole body, patients note significant changes to their entire lives with this form of treatment.
