Do you have Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is now recognised as a real condition with more and more people every day being diagnosed as suffering the debilitating condition. Individuals suffering Fibromyalgia will tell you of their daily struggle with persistent, widespread chronic pain that often progressively worsens with time. Unfortunately, majority of people don’t seek help as they are unaware that they have Fibromyalgia and that there is real treatment options available. Even if you do seek assistance, many doctors still do not consider Fibromyalgia a real health condition therefore leaving you without the help you require.
Although there is conjecture about the exact cause and workings of fibromyalgia, the current belief is that it is a combination of nervous system (Nerve) and hormonal dysfunction. Many sufferers report their fibromyalgia commenced either: after they suffered physical, psychological or emotional trauma (such as a car accident or losing a loved one), contracted an infectious disease (such as Dengue Fever or Glandular fever for example.) Although these incidents are not likely to cause fibromyalgia, their occurrence is believed to trigger the fibromyalgia in those who are susceptible.
Of all of the signs and symptoms, the most common one is sleep deprivation or disturbed sleep. Fibromyalgia patients find it hard to get a deep restful sleep most nights. Sleep deprivation has direct links to disturbances in brain chemistry. There has been research in regards to different brain chemicals that may cause the symptoms of fibromyalgia, the four most important have been found to be; 1) Substance P, a protein which helps brain signals. 2) Serotonin; which regulates sleep and mood. 3) Tryptophan; which is a building block to make Serotonin and 4) Norepinephrine; helps the body to deal with stress.
