We don’t want to scare you but it turns out that more than five million people suffer from fibromyalgia in the United States, of which 80% are women.
What’s even scarier is that many of these people don’t know it yet as the condition is notoriously difficult to diagnose with some common symptoms including excessive sweating, heightened senses, digestive disorders, a lack of Vitamin D, joint pain, fatigue, problems with urinating, and sleep problems. As you can see, these symptoms can seem like symptoms of almost anything, which is why many conventional doctors tend to be dismissive about these symptoms.
While no two fibromyalgia patients experience the same symptoms, it has been shown that patients will report psychological symptoms in addition to the physical ones such as pain and fatigue. Brain fog is a very common symptom of fibromyalgia, as are depression and anxiety. Brain fog leads to problems with memory, concentration, organizational skills, and other cognitive problems while depression and anxiety can seem like a vicious circle of bottomless pits.
There are many medications that aim to hide to the symptoms of fibromyalgia, however more and more people are turning to holistic methods to treat their condition, one of which being our effective Functional Neurology therapies.
