What are the Symptoms for Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?
Fibromyalgia is a rheumatic syndrome characterized by widespread and often debilitating pain in fibrous tissues, muscles, and other connective tissues. It affects 2-4% of the population and is found mostly in women between the ages of 20 to 50.
Dr. Dantini has successfully treated hundreds of chronic fatique and fibromyalgia patients using his unique protocol.
Fibromyalgia Trigger Points Diagram
Fibromyalgia has standard pressure points, which are tender to the touch. Fibromyalgia is defined by these reproducible series of 18 specific symmetric trigger points. A patient that has been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia will usually have at least 11 of the 18 trigger points for over three months. These tender areas are around your shoulder, the base of your neck, the top of your back, your elbows, your lower back around the hips, and your knees.
Dr. Dantini treats fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue as viral infections. The fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue symptoms that develop are the body's response to an active virus as it infects new cells in the body. Some people contract these viruses as adults, while others are infected as children. These "stealth" viruses can lay dormant inside the cells for years. When your immune system is depressed, the virus starts to replicate and the symptoms begin.
Fibromyalgia Symptoms include:
- Tender and sore areas of the body (shoulders, back of neck, lower back, hips, shins, elbows, and knees).
- Migraines and recurring headaches
- Inability to focus
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Night sweats
- Inability to sleep
- Chronic aches of the body and face
- Inability to accomplish everyday tasks
The initial symptoms of fibromyalgia are virus related. Additional symptoms may occur as the immune system becomes over stimulated. These chronic fibromyalgia symptoms have been related to delayed food allergies or food sensitivities and are recognized in over 80% of the patients Dr. Dantini treats.
An allergy is a reaction to a foreign stimulus caused by the immune system's response to eliminate it. Food allergies are just as common as inhalant allergies. Symptoms of inhalant allergies are typically sneezing, itchy eyes and runny nose. Food allergy reactions can be identified as any number of symptoms ranging from migraine headaches to acid reflux, arthritis to acne. Irritable bowel syndrome is known as one of the most common indicators of food allergies. Many symptoms commonly related to fibromyalgia are potentially signs of delayed food allergies. These symptoms can be cured by recognizing the food allergy and avoiding it.
