Are you feeling so fatigued that even light movement or trying to get through your day can feel like a marathon?
Perhaps you are also experiencing pain and stiffness all over your body, or encountering problems with thinking, memory, and concentration.
Do you feel unheard like you have an “invisible illness” because you “look fine” but feel awful on the inside?
Are scared that you’re losing your mind with this neverending pain?
Well, you’re not alone – fibromyalgia affects about 2% of the adult population in the US and people with fibromyalgia are oftentimes more sensitive to pain than people without fibromyalgia – which is called abnormal pain perception processing.
Fibromyalgia is characterized by long-term pain or tenderness in the muscles and bones. This pain can last for weeks or even months at a time and is often accompanied by fatigue and difficulty sleeping.
Unfortunately, fibromyalgia is frequently a blanket diagnosis doctors use when they don't have the tools or know-how to get to the bottom of your symptoms, which are typically multiple-factorial in nature, including…
While they may do a physical exam or basic blood work, both can miss more serious systemic health imbalances including autoimmunity, stealth infections, gut dysbiosis like leaky gut, thyroid and/or adrenal issues, or even food sensitivities that together can trigger chronic inflammation and sensitize your body’s pain perception.
At Premier Health Of Summit, we help motivated adults struggling with fibromyalgia, chronic pain, and balance issues take control of underlying conditions so they can finally reclaim a pain-free, confident life feeling and looking their best… especially if they feel unheard and literally don’t know what to do next.
When it comes to fibromyalgia, it’s important to work with a qualified functional neurology practitioner who can identify the root causes of your fibromyalgia and help you map out an effective, full brain & body restoration program.
In order to determine a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and properly treat each individual and specific case, Dr. Anderson conducts an in-depth evaluation in three ways: structurally, neurologically, and metabolically. These three aspects of a patient’s body help determine exactly what is happening and provide the necessary information to determine the proper treatment for each specific case.
That’s why it is also important to have a metabolic workup to check blood chemistry. This enables us to determine if you’re having an adverse reaction to certain foods which can cause inflammation.
It will indicate if there are blood sugar problems, anemia, adrenal issues, and many other metabolic imbalances. Knowing your blood chemistry helps facilitate effective nutritional changes that can be sustainable and encourage proper body functions.
Once we do the correct testing, we craft a precise treatment plan unique to your needs that includes all the elements you need to finally address and even reverse fibromyalgia so you can live a pain-free, confident life feeling and looking your best… especially if you feel unheard and literally don’t know what to do next.
The exact cause of fibromyalgia is still unknown; however, there are several theories about what might trigger the condition. Some experts believe that genetic factors could play a role in causing fibromyalgia since it tends to run in families. Other potential triggers include physical or emotional trauma such as an accident or abuse; infections such as Lyme disease; hormonal imbalances; changes in weather; stress; lack of exercise; poor sleep patterns; nutritional deficiencies; certain medications; food sensitivities; environmental toxins; and more.
The conventional medical stance on fibromyalgia states there is no cure for fibromyalgia – instead relying on palliative approaches to reduce symptoms and improve quality of life.
Oftentimes, doctors will prescribe antidepressants when they don't see anything obvious in your blood work and can't give you answers about your symptoms.
Sadly, the label of fibromyalgia is given – while something more serious is spiraling out of control and is now impacting gut health, brain health, and even immune function which can all be contributing causes of fibromyalgia.
Some of the imbalances that may be at play can include gut dysbiosis such as SIBO, leaky gut, and/or candida overgrowth. A poor diet, stealth infections, an undiagnosed food allergy, hormone imbalances, or exposure to environmental toxins like mold are other potential causes of fibromyalgia that are frequently overlooked by conventionally-trained health providers.
