Fibromyalgia Treatments

For the last 15 years I have suffered from Fibromyalgia – chronic pain. Mostly in my neck, shoulders and back. However there have been days where the pain spreads throughout my entire body. For days on end, sometimes even months at a time, my entire body feels like it’s been hit by a truck.

Over the last 5 years or so, the physical pain I’ve felt started to get more intense everywhere. Honestly, I thought it was just me over exerting myself at my job and daily activities. I thought the pain was normal. I then started noticing all these other symptoms. IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Chronic Fatigue, Restless leg syndrome and TMJ (Temporomandibular Joint -Jaw pain and stiffness) just to name a few.

It was then, that I knew that something more was going on. No one could be suffering from all these symptoms on a daily basis, and not have something wrong with them.

In August 2008 my doctor put me off work permanently. Since then I have been on Income Support. After going through many exams, tests and trying various methods for pain relief over the years that were doing absolutely nothing for me, my family doctor of 30 years made an initial diagnosis of Fibromyalgia in December 2011.

January 2013, I was referred to a Rheumatologist. It was then that I was officially diagnosed with Chronic Fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia Treatments

Since I am fairly new to learning about this “invisible illness” called Fibromyalgia, it’s wonderful knowing there is a great deal of support for Fibromyalgia and valuable resources out there where I can get answers to my questions, and not just opinions. 

That’s where Lifescript’s Fibromyalgia Health Center has come in and has taken a lot of stress away.

Lifescript provides medical information, tips, and advice that are all written by professional health writers, experts, and physicians. That means that the information is up-to-date, accurate, and well-researched.

Visit Lifescript for useful information on Fibromyalgia and other prevalent medical conditions related to women’s health.

Since browsing the Lifescript website I have learned so much about Fibromyalgia, there is a ton of information (medical and statistical) but what I appreciate the most is the treatments of Fibromyalgia.

I was able to find information on medication, alternative therapies (Magnesium Massage, Balneotherapy Spa Therapy, etc), and lifestyle changes. Lifestyle changes are important but are not always enough.

I love that Lifescript encourages healthy living. There is even help on how to manage your condition with Nutrition and Exercise.

Lifescript’s Fibromyalgia Health Center features tips, quizzes, recipes and articles – all by professional health writers, experts and physicians – covering new fibromyalgia research, the best foods to fight fibromyalgia, how to get a correct diagnosis, management tips for moms and more.

    My rheumatologist is a big jerk. He first diagnosed me with rheumatoid arthritis but then said it would go away (since when?) then he went with fibro, but won’t do anything to treat the symptoms, my youngest is in a wheelchair and I said that the daily pain was impacting our quality of life because I can’t lift her as much as I should be able to. He told me to get over having a special needs child and I was just depressed. I’m on the hunt for someone new! I didn’t know however that IBS (I was diagnosed with it at 13.) and TMJ (had reconstructive jaw surgery 6 years ago) were connected to Fibro, really interesting!

    My Mom has suffered from this all her life. Its a hard disease as most of the time you feel like your brain is making it up (Or so my mom says!) and other people don’t see a problem with you so they don’t understand the pain you are in. I am going to pass this info onto my mom. Hopefully this site helps both of you!

  3. Those silent and non visible disabilities are the worst and most difficult to deal with. Good luck!

  4. I don’t know anyone sufferring from Fibromyalgia, but I’m glad that you’ve finally been referred to a Rheumatologist and that you found LifeScript and that it’s helping you with information you never knew. I’ll definitely bookmark their site so that I never forget it in case I do run into someone that needs more information concerning Fibromyalgia

  5. Lifescript is a great service for those suffering with illnesses. They provide a lot of info.

  6. Paula Schuck says:

    I will remember that. I have several people I know who have fibromyalgia.

  7. It’s great to know there is an online resource available for fibromyalgia. Definitely worth the visit to that website.
