PRLog - June 10, 2009 - Defined as a chronic condition characterized by pain, tenderness and stiffness of the muscles and joints, and accompanied by fatigue and anxiety, fibromyalgia sufferers have been told their condition didn’t exist or was all in their mind.
The Truth About Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia, along with irritable bowel syndrome, migraines and restless legs syndrome are disorders caused by an inability of the brain to properly regulate pain and sympathetic nervous activity, says rheumatologist Dr. Clay McCord.
The doctor presents evidence that disrupted deep sleep leading to a chemical imbalance in the brain is primarily causative. Therapy restoring this imbalance improves sleep to help alleviate symptoms. A failure in the past by doctors to recognize these associations has led to misdiagnosis and mistreatment, unnecessary referrals to specialists and money spent needlessly.
Dr. McCord’s book puts an end to misunderstandings about the disease. After years of watching others profit off discredited theories, he believes the truth is the only way to combat deception and bring about relief.
