Fibromyalgia is the most common autoimmune disease:  Commonly prevalent in women.

 Mycoplasma a infection causes fevers, tiredness & fatigue. CIDPUSA uncovers the secret.

Fibromyalgia tender points

This disorder targets young women and the neck pain will usually get misdiagnosed as neuralgia.

In reality it is Myofacial pain which if treated early on will stop the progression of FMS. the diagnosis of myofacial pain is confirmed by palpating tender areas under the skin, usually located in muscles. On pressing the tender point the pain, experienced by the patient, is reproduced. There are no tests needed to confirm this diagnosis. The best way to get rid of this pain is by rubbing any oil on the tender area and stretching it. If the pain goes away by the procedure described you have the diagnosis.

If the disease is not treated properly then the FMS will slowly spread to adjacent muscles. It will start to cause symptoms of numbness, weakness, difficulty in concentration and non restful sleep. These people wake up tired and feel stiffness in the morning. Because of the pain they develop temper tantrums. As most doctors will be unable to reach this diagnosis the patients will be labeled as a malingerer. Many patients have been brought to me and the family believed they were hysterical and they have walked out of the clinic with a better diagnosis and followed by cure of this disease.

Once the patient is diagnosed and told that they do not have Multiple sclerosis or Cancer most will heal naturally.

The severely affected patients treated with electro stimulation and antibiotics/antiviral combination with herbal supplements and these chronic patients respond well to these treatments. Most patients achieve a cure so they do not need to be followed up. The cause is a infection due to Mycoplasma.

What are the common causes of this disorder? The number one trigger is stress, sue to stress there is a suppression of our immune functions. I think every woman in this world suffers from stress. Stress can be chronic or a sudden PTSD like event. The second cause is trauma, this can be a slap on the face, a car accident any small injury at work or just carrying heavy luggage at the airport. I have personally developed myofacial pain from these above described causes.

Fibromyalgia is the most common cause of pain in the world after Myofacial pain. I consider both Myofacial pain and Fibromyalgia as interlinked disorders, They are one and the same by treatment, patients symptoms and pathology. Trigger points and tender points occur in both the conditions, usually most authors will connect the tender points with Fibromyalgia and Trigger points with Myofacial pain. I have found trigger points in all my patients with fibromyalgia with the twitch response.

Are there any vitamin or hormonal deficiency seen in FMS patients? You will be surprised to know that vitamin B-12 deficiency is very common in FMS. Don't think about getting tested instead get the sublingual replacement. If by getting the Cynocobalamin injection the symptoms of fatigue disappear then you were suffering from B-12 deficiency. This deficiency will also result in the patient having hypothyroidism. Those suffering from B-12 deficiency will also gain weight, have trouble awakening from sleep in the morning.
