Are You Plagued by Chronic Pain and Fatigue?
Finding a solution for fibromyalgia (FMS) and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a very common reason for why people visit their doctor or healthcare practitioners. These two conditions share many symptoms, to the extent that some references believe they are on the same spectrum of a single condition. In FMS, pain is the main concern, while in CFS, low energy is more dominant. Other common complains are non-restorative sleep and other sleep related concerns, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), headaches, impaired cognition and mood concerns including anxiety and depression.
In allopathic medicine a variety of medications have been used to treat these conditions such as: Muscle relaxants, antidepressants, nonsteroid anti-inflammatory drugs, opioids, steroids and anti convulsion medications. The results are mixed however and no standard treatment is available thus far.
