Everywhere I Touch It Hurts
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Symptoms often begin after an event, such as physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. Symptoms can gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event. Women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia then men.
Helen C presented to our office reporting severe joint and muscle pain all over her body. The deep ache and stiffness in her body has insidiously impacted her life preventing her from performing activities of daily living such as cleaning, cooking, laundry and food shopping. Her sleep was interrupted due to pain which has led to extreme fatigue, anxiety and depression.
Her exam revealed an underlying systemic Candida infection contributing to inflammation in the muscles and joints as well as Leaky Gut Syndrome. She was put on a specific diet and a program of care to address the Leaky Gut and Candida infection. After several months on the program her pain levels were significantly reduced. She is sleeping better and slowly reclaiming her life.
