Women are more commonly afflicted with Fibromyalgia than men and
it can occur at any age. Patients with Fibromyalgia say that they have
ache all over the body. Their muscles may feel like they have been
overworked or pulled. The severity of symptoms may fluctuate from
patient to patient. Patients generally feel devoid of all energy and
extremely fatigued without any apparent cause.
Common features of Fibromyalgia are:
Pain: Deep muscular aching pain; at times there may be throbbing,
shooting, and stabbing, burning pain. Pain generally involves muscle
groups that are used repetitively.
Fatigue: May range from mild fatigue to incapacitating lack of
energy in others. Typically describes as "brain fatigue" in which
patients feel totally drained of energy.
Unrefreshing sleep; waking up tired after sleep.
Chronic headaches: Recurrent migraine or tension-type
headaches frequently seen in these patients.
Other common symptoms:
a)Premenstrual syndrome and painful periods
d)Numbness and tingling sensations
f)Dizziness and impaired coordination can occur
Probable causes of Fibromyalgia:
Fibromyalgia is a widespread musculoskeletal pain and
fatigue disorder for which the cause is still unknown yet
there are many triggering events thought to precipitate its
onset. A few examples would be:
An infection (viral or bacterial)
An automobile accident
The development of another disorder such as rheumatoid
arthritis, lupus, Ankylosing spondylitis or hypothyroidism
Researchers have found that people with Fibromyalgia
may have abnormal levels of several chemicals, such as
substance P and serotonin.
Conventional treatments do not have much to offer to a
patient of fibromyalgia and are geared toward reducing pain
and improving the quality of sleep. Homoeopathy is one
branch of medicine that can bring significant relief to the
sufferers of Fibromyalgia. Homoeopathy has effective
medication that works at the physical as well as the mental
plane and hence can be instrumental in giving maximum relief
to these patients. The underlying stress that can be a
trigger for this disorder can also be effectively handled
with Homoeopathic treatment. It improves the general
immunity and vitality of the patient and also targets the
increased sensitiveness to pain that these patients suffer
Suggestion about homoeopathic treatment:
Homoeopathy is very strongly recommended for Fibromyalgia.
The pain and the fatigue associated with the disease can be
effectively controlled with the medication and there is
overall improvement in the general vitality of the patient.
The important aspect is that homoeopathy is absolutely safe
and without any side effects whatsoever.
