Chronic Fatigue Syndrome did not Sound like a Real Disease to Me

How I found out I had Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

I had general pain, spotted places tender to the touch, and several added symptoms but could not get a fibromyalgia diagnosis from a doctor other than I was chronically tired. Even my teenage grandson said that was lame, although he hugged me and said he was sorry I did not feel good. Before coming to Dr. Miller, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome may have been a common disorder known by other people, but I did know that was what was wrong with me.

Although chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia is time and again considered to be a type of arthritis disorder, it is not arthritis. It is like arthritis, but chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia does cause substantial pain and incapacitating fatigue, which kept me from being able to do simple daily tasks and even to take care of myself some days.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Besides being exhausted while in pain, when you have chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia you can have a ton of symptoms like problems with memory or thinking clearly. I know I am smart, but sometimes I just could not get that piece of information I needed out of my brain and long periods of time would go by before I knew it. I woke up stiff and sore, couldn’t stay asleep, had all kinds of bowel issues I did not want to talk about, headaches, obnoxious menstrual periods, and that annoying restless legs syndrome. My hands and feet would go numb or tingle, and my body’s thermostat was wacky, and I was highly irritated by odd and loud noises or bright lights.

What I did not know was that I had more than one problem going on and my medical doctor could not pin it down. People with fibromyalgia can also have endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disease, interstitial cystitis, and other thing going wrong and they still do not know if any of these things are related.

Fibromyalgia And Or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The probable reason for chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia I may not know, but it does not matter to me because Dr. Miller knew what to do about it. a number of scientists believe the problem is in my genes which could be in charge of how our bodies process unsafe stimuli. According to this theory, those of us with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia may in fact have genes making us react strongly to a stimulus which does not bug other people. There are more than a few genes already identified to occur in those of us with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia patient

Extraordinary Results that are Scientifically Based

Scientists estimate chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia has an effect on more than five million adults in Americans. They do not know why but more than 90 percent of us with chronic fatigue syndrome or fibromyalgia are women. Most of us who suffer do not get an accurate diagnosis until we are older, even though the fibromyalgia symptoms, like vaginal pain, muscle pain, irritable bowel, tension headaches, recurring constipation, irritable bladder, diarrhea, and urinary infections repeatedly show up earlier in life.
