What do you do if you have FibromyalgiaDecember 3, 2017 Posted by: Dr. Manoj 468 views
“I’m not feeling well.” Anytime you are heard saying this, the standard question that follows is: “what happened?” Now, what if you can’t explain ‘what happened’? What if there are multiple aches, multiple symptoms that nobody believes can coexist? What if people think you are ‘faking’ it? Well, that’s what a life with fibromyalgia like. Now, the question is, how do you understand whether you have fibromyalgia? Here are a few questions for you. Does your body have unusual weakness? Do you have pain almost in every part of your body, and all the time? For many of you might relate to symptoms of many health issues, you’re still not clear of what’s going on in there. Is it difficult to talk about one particular pain, because you have it all over and you can’t define it? If your answers are yes to the questions, then you possibly have fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia in many people is noted with a cycle of extreme sensitivity to pain, and inactivity that may worsen with sleeplessness and weakness. Your symptoms mimic many diseases one on top of the other. So it’s practically not possible to define, or rather confirm having fibromyalgia. It is often nicknamed as the “invisible disease or a copycat condition.” Fibromyalgia is a condition in which all the organs are affected. For many it may seem like a psychological condition or hypochondria. But the reality is, it’s not. And there are no tests or scan to diagnose fibromyalgia. So if you think you have fibromyalgia, hold on. Be patient, and look for the best remedy. Although it’s hard for most medical systems to rightly diagnose it, homeopathy could be one of the best options you can go with.
So what do you do when you know you have fibromyalgia?
If you think you have fibromyalgia, the first thing you must do is speak to your doctor. Knowing your symptoms is the most crucial aspect of diagnosing any problem. While there isn’t any single or specific remedy for fibromyalgia, there are some treatments which can ease the symptoms and improve your life. You’ll probably have to work like a detective along with your doctor, to diagnose fibromyalgia.
Here’s how you start:
Know your symptoms:
- People suffering from fibromyalgia have many small pain points all over the body called tender points. Any pressure on these areas causes intense pain.
- Disturbed sleep patterns are common, and can make you feel incredibly groggy, or dizzy and fatigued.
- Anxiety and temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems are other common signs.
- Hypersensitivity to certain noises, light and some foods may also occur.
- Symptoms disappear for days, weeks, or months, only to show up as mysteriously as they vanished.
Get the care you require: Getting a diagnosis is not difficult, but getting the right diagnosis may take some time. You might be asked to give your blood samples for some tests to confirm you don’t have hypothyroidism. Rheumatologists, neurologists, or primary care doctors are the best to help you with diagnosis and treatments for fibromyalgia.
Keep track: With a wide array of symptoms in a person with fibromyalgia, it is hard to remember exactly when a symptom occurred and what triggered it to flare-up. It will help if you track your activities, food, and other symptoms specifically like a report.
Be ready for questions: These questions could help you have a better way to deal with fibromyalgia while you get your doctor to treat you:
How would you describe your pain?
People often describe the pain as a dull ache or a sharp prick like pain.
Is there anything that worsens your symptoms?
This could be any activity, food, or certain noises.
Have you been having these symptoms for a long time?
Symptoms might usually fluctuate. You should be ready to inform your doctors about the first time you had such pains/ symptoms.
How does exercise make you feel? Better or worse?
Tell your doctor how exercise affects you. People with fibromyalgia sometimes experience intolerable pain and much worse a day after exercising. Homeopathic Approach Homeopathy as we all know, is a natural and non-invasive system of treating chronic and mild health conditions. The pain and the weakness associated with fibromyalgia can be controlled efficiently with homeopathic remedies. Homeopathy improves the general vitality of a person with fibromyalgia. It is absolutely safe and does not have any side effects post the treatment.
