Fibromyalgia

 

The following is the standard-of-care information about fibromyalgia from http://www.webmd.com/fibromyalgia/default.htm

Fibromyalgia syndrome affects the muscles and soft tissue. Symptoms include chronic muscle pain, fatigue, sleep problems, and painful tender points or trigger points, which can be relieved through medications, lifestyle changes and stress management.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Chronic muscle pain, muscle spasms, or tightness
  • Moderate or severe fatigue and decreased energy
  • Insomnia or waking up feeling just as tired as when you went to sleep
  • Stiffness upon waking or after staying in one position for too long
  • Difficulty remembering, concentrating, and performing simple mental tasks ("fibro fog")
  • Abdominal pain, bloating, nausea, and constipation alternating with diarrhea (irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Tension or migraine headaches
  • Jaw and facial tenderness
  • Sensitivity to one or more of the following: odors, noise, bright lights, medications, certain foods, and cold
  • Feeling anxious or depressed
  • Numbness or tingling in the face, arms, hands, legs, or feet
  • Increase in urinary urgency or frequency (irritable bladder)
  • Reduced tolerance for exercise and muscle pain after exercise
  • A feeling of swelling (without actual swelling) in the hands and feet

What one notices at first glance is that most of these symptoms are those of insufficiency of adrenal hormones, particularly adrenalin.  The symptoms are also common with hypothyroidism.  The symptoms are also aggravated by lack of nitric oxide, particularly if you are past age forty.  This causes poor circulation with lack of oxygen to your organs.  Of course lack of oxygen is aggravated if you take too much blood pressure medicine causing your blood pressure to be too low to get oxygen to your organs, especially your brain.

To figure out what is causing fibromyalgia:

·         Get a Free T-3 blood test to see if you are hypothyroid.  If it is below 3.0, you will likely need to take thyroid hormone

·         Correct stomach acid with vitamin B1, iodine, zinc and salt (such as with Tennant Lugol’s Plus)

·         Look at your blood pressure.  If the upper number is below 120 and/or the bottom number is below 80, you are likely deficient in adrenal function.  The adrenals are on the spleen acupuncture muscle battery pack.  This can be affected by dental infections in your upper molars, infections where your wisdom teeth were removed, and/or infections in the lower premolars.

·         If you are over age forty, you will need Neo-40 to correct your nitric oxide levels

·         Adrenal support capsules (Tennant Adrenal Support for adrenalin and/or Tennant Desiccated Adrenal or similar) are often helpful

·         Be tested to see if you have emotional baggage that can be released with the BioModulator or with a similar techniqu
