Fibromyalgia Remedies Do They Work?
The Important Goals To Reach For:
- Reduce Pain,
- Reduce Flare –ups
- Reduce Stress
- Remain Active and Self-Management
The dilemma of treating fibromyalgia is that at this time there is no known cure. This is a common problem with treating most chronic diseases, but especially fibromyalgia as there is not a one size fits all treatment plan. What works for one person, may not work for another. Doctors have been faced with this dilemma over and over as they go head to head with breast cancer or other debilitating diseases trying different treatment options because what worked for one patient may not work for the next. The right treatment regimen for you may take time, and a little patience as you weed through the different possible treatment options that fibromyalgia suffers just like you have used. Many sufferers have found great success, and you need to believe that you will too. Myself and others have discovered that there is no single treatment plan, or medication that will work to cure or treat fibromyalgia syndrome. Most sufferers will agree that you will need to implement a multi-disciplinary approach that can include doctor prescribed medications, fibromyalgia diet choices, natural supplements, and gentle exercise are the direction that must be taken to get back on track, and begin to feel better.

The Stress Of Living With Fibromyalgia
Learning how to lower your stress level is the beginning of breaking the exhausting pain cycle of this debilitating disease. The pain of fibromyalgia can be for most people who have never experienced it indescribable.
The pain is everywhere sharp, cramping, burning, gripping and twisting your insides, your outsides, and blurring the edges where functioning and coping become impossible. Fighting the pain that is spread throughout your muscles, tendons, tissues, ligaments and joints is a tiring process, and as exhausted as you are, another dilemma rears it’s ugly head; insomnia.
The pain and aching make what is usually a pleasant experience, “sleeping” into a never ending night of tossing and turning. This leads to the chronic fatigue that plagues most fibromyalgia sufferers, and at times It can make it impossible to function during the day. When you add the stiffness, numbness, muscles weakness, headaches, sore spots, sensitivity to sight, smell, and sound, and you just want to shut down, close yourself off from the pain, but there is no escape.
Living with this unbearable pain day in and day out, creates another problem that involves our brains. Our brain attempts to shut out, and protect us from the pain, and we begin to live in what some call the “fog”. A veil of coping, but not living, as we push through the days, the months, and sometimes the years of pain that never seem to end. An endless cycle of pain, and suffering that eats away at who we are, and the dreams of who we want to be.
We are “fogged in unable to see out, groping for a lifeline, and hope……..it is no way to live!
