      Fibromyalgia can be defined as pain felt throughout the entire body for which there is no obvious cause after examination or laboratory testing. The effects are long-lasting and are specifically experienced in the muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. The pain may also feel like it is in your joints, although fibromyalgia does not physically affect these areas.

      Causes of Fibromyalgia

      Doctors are still unsure as to what exactly causes fibromyalgia. Research indicates that hormonal imbalance may have an impact, especially when it comes to the thyroid and adrenal glands.

      Another avenue of research is that the functions of the brain and nervous system that process pain may be acting unnaturally, causing some to experience fibromyalgia symptoms. Some people may notice that their fibromyalgia is negatively affected by physical activity, stress, or even cold weather.

      Symptoms & Associated Conditions of Fibromyalgia

      Patients dealing with fibromyalgia describe the sensation in many ways. It can be experienced as a deep ache or shooting pain. Symptoms can arise exclusively in the morning upon waking, or they can persist throughout the entire day.

      Several conditions generally coincide with fibromyalgia:

      Diagnosis and Treatment

      If you have been experiencing pain throughout your body that emanates from one of the tender points mentioned above, and if it has persisted for three or more months, you may be suffering from fibromyalgia.

      Treatment of fibromyalgia begins with optimizing sleep, nutrition, and digestive function, reducing stress, and safely treating pain. A holistic approach that takes the WHOLE person into account and treats them in a way that is harmonious with the body is most effective.

      Fibromyalgia that's caused by thyroid or adrenal imbalance can be treated with bio-identical hormone replacement therapy, or BHRT. BHRT replenishes your thyroid and adrenal glands with biologically identical hormones.
