Autoimmune diseases are on the rise. Both Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue are autoimmune diseases. The fact is based upon new studies which show that immune tests are abnormal in both these conditions. Both of these diseases tend to occur in people who have other autoimmune diseases.
There are many ways to treat Fibromyalgia and
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome here we are presenting the immunological
features of these conditions. Where you can diagnose them by a blood
tests and treat them by IVIg antibotics,
vitamins, herbals or diet (see the diet page).
A person is supposed to have Fibromyalgia if they
have body pain in all or one half or all of the body for at least
six months. They have tender areas ito touch n the neck, back, hips,
shoulders, elbows and knees.. The pain usually gets worse when a
storm front is approaching and the barometer falls or early in the
morning. This is
associated with body stiffness worst in the morning. Pain usually tend to start on
the left side of the body with complaints of vague numbness. These
spells of numbness then spread to the other side of the body.
A person with Chronic Fatigue usually feel
excessively tired. The fatigue is so severe that they have
difficulty doing things at home. Both Chronic Fatigue and
Fibromyalgia can occur in the same patient at the same time. With
chronic fatigue patients tend to have excessive infections like
sinusitis, flu, bronchitis or runny nose.
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue
Syndrome are extremely common chronic condition . The
current etiology is considered to be
characteristic alterations in the pattern of sleep and changes.
The diagnosis is clinical and is characterized by widespread
pain, tender points and, commonly, conditions such as
chronic fatigue, sleep issues and depression. The diagnosis can be
confirmed by doing a IgG and IgG sublass screen. Treatment is is
by using IVIg, although experience and small clinical studies
have proved the efficacy IVIg. Other less well-studied measures,
such as trigger point treatment, also appear to be helpful.
Management relies heavily on the physician's supportive
counseling skills and willingness to try novel strategies in
refractory cases described below.
Fibromyalgia is a immunologial
neurological and rheumatologic
condition characterized by spontaneous, widespread soft tissue pain,
sleep disturbance, fatigue and extensively distributed areas of
tenderness known as tender points. Estimates of prevalence are 3.4
percent for women and 0.5 percent for men.1
While the cause of fibromyalgia is currently considered by
some to be a a immune mediated disease in some cases
assossiated with a IgG subclass deficiency.
Fibromyalgia should be considered in any patient with
musculoskeletal pain that is unrelated to a clearly defined anatomic
lesion. Making the diagnosis of fibromyalgia depends on findings
from the history and physical examination rather than on diagnostic
In 1990, the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) established
criteria for classifying patients with fibromyalgia.9
However, failure to meet these criteria does not absolutely
exclude the possibility of fibromyalgia.
As with other rheumatologic disorders, fibromyalgia:
- Is established on the basis of clinical observations.
- Is a condition with signs and symptoms that exist on a
- Often requires observation over time to firmly establish the
- Some patients will have low IgG levels
or low IgG subclass levels,
Widespread pain is characteristic of fibromyalgia. Although not
all areas may be involved simultaneously, pain may occur in the
occiput, neck, shoulders, thoracic and lumbar spine, paraspinous
regions, buttocks, hips, elbows and knees. People complain of pain,
knots and hearing noises when they move the neck or other joints.
The complaints of numbness are vague and usually cross anatomic
Examination will reveal areas of pain on palpation but without
the classic inflammatory signs of redness, swelling and heat in the
joints and soft tissue. Although tender points are found in many
different locations, the ACR has selected 18 sites that are more
characteristic for fibromyalgia (Figure 1). To be classified
with a definitive diagnosis of fibromyalgia, the patient must have
tenderness on palpation at 11 of the 18 sites and a history as
defined in Table 1, although patients with fewer than 11
sites still may have fibromyalgia. The number of tender points may
change over time.
Skill in palpation of tender points is critical to establishing a
diagnosis of fibromyalgia. Physical findings encountered during
palpation of the soft tissues include tender points, changes in skin
texture, increased resting muscle tension and changes in the texture
of the subcutaneous tissue. The muscles are at times felt to be
stiff and hard. There may be reduced range of motion in the joints.
American College of Rheumatology Criteria for
Classification of Fibromyalgia
- Widespread pain for at
least three months, defined as the presence of
all of the following:
- Pain on the right and
left sides of the body
Pain above and below the waist (including
shoulder and buttock pain)
Pain in the axial skeleton (cervical, thoracic
or lumbar spine, or anterior chest)
- Pain on palpation
in 11 of the sites shown in the above
Because the symptoms of fibromyalgia wax and wane, treatment (as
with that of other chronic autoimmune diseases) is an ongoing
process rather than management of a single episode. Flare-ups often
exacerbate the patient's underlying stress. Furthermore, stress can
also precipitate flare-ups of fibromyalgia. Physicians should spend
some time eliciting and hearing the ongoing narrative of the
struggle of living with a chronic disease and attempt to ameliorate
the effects of the symptoms on the patient's quality of life.
For the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome just ask the person
to eat small portions of diet 6-7 times a day. Thus they cannot have
meals but only snacks. All FMS syndrome should go on a celiac diet
to try to get rid of the disease please

People with Chronic Fatigue cannot do over activity. If they do
they will have to pay for it by fatigue. Then they will have
increased fatigue on the next few days. Due to immune dysfunction
they cannot metabolize in the muscles.
A course of doxycycline will fully reverse m taken one tablet daily at night for minimum of three months. Alternative treatment is using a Tens unit on both hands for thirty minutes a day for almost a year , This gets rid of the pain and also the disease it self by the electronic pulses. After application a fatigue is felt. Please read the link on electrical stimulation . For those who want even a simpler treatment should try hydrogen peroxide.

A double-blind, placebo-controlled trial of intravenous
immunoglobulin therapy in patients with chronic fatigue syndrome.
Lloyd A, Hickie I, Wakefield D, Boughton C, Dwyer J.
Department of Infectious Diseases, Prince Henry Hospital, Sydney,
CONCLUSION: Immunomodulatory treatment with immunoglobulin is
effective in a significant number of patients with CFS, a finding
that supports the concept that an immunologic disturbance may be
important in the pathogenesis of this disorder.

Successful intravenous immunoglobulin therapy in 3 cases of
parvovirus B19-associated chronic fatigue syndrome.
Kerr JR, Cunniffe VS, Kelleher P, Bernstein RM, Bruce IN.
Department of Microbiology, Royal Brompton Hospital, Imperial
Three cases of chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) that followed acute
parvovirus B19 infection were treated with a 5-day course of
intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG; 400 mg/kg per day), the only
specific treatment for parvovirus B19 infection. We examined the
influence of IVIG treatment on the production of cytokines and
chemokines in individuals with CFS due to parvovirus B19. IVIG
therapy led to clearance of parvovirus B19 viremia, resolution of
symptoms, and improvement in physical and functional ability in all
patients, as well as resolution of cytokine dysregulation.
