If you or a loved one is suffering from fatigue and or chronic pain and have seen your conventional doctor, you may have commonly heard the same things, either “its all in your head” or they are told that they must be depressed or suffer from mood disorders, and or all your labs look fine so there must be nothing wrong. You may have been offered antidepressants, pain medication, stimulants, and other drugs with numerous side effects to mask some of the symptoms.
Meanwhile you continue to suffer from any or all of the symptoms assigned to Chronic fatigue syndrome and Fibromyalgia including fatigue, muscle pain and or joint pain, brain fog, insomnia, difficulty concentrating, gastrointestinal problems, headaches, flu like symptoms and more.
Unfortunately none of the prescribed pharmaceuticals like SSRI’s, Trazadone, Ambien, Lyrica, Cymbalta, Provigil, antacids and more address the underlying cause or hear the patient’s concerns and usually make the patient feel worse and cause numerous new problems due to medication side effects.
Chronic fatigue syndrome and Fibromyalgia seem to be the ‘go to diagnoses’ when a patient suffers from fatigue or muscle and or joint pain where standard conventional medicine cannot find an identifiable cause. Many times these diagnoses have a stigma with them in conventional medicine where the patient is thought to just suffer from depression, or is just being emotional, or attention seeking, hence these are the patients that frequently are found most challenging by conventional doctors since they may be poorly informed regarding underlying causes of the problem and are unable to offer the patient any real worthwhile treatment and the drugs they prescribe them often do.
Not resolve the problem and patients keep coming back exhausted and in pain and that just frustrates conventional doctors.
Chronic Fatigue and fibromyalgia are symptoms of underlying imbalances and themselves not the root illnesses.
Their cause is multifactorial and their treatment involves the treating the body as a whole and their cause is multifactorial. Some of the underlying problems in chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia can be environmental toxicity, nutritional deficiency, gastrointestinal microbial imbalance, chronic viral and or bacterial infections, hormonal imbalance, mitochondrial dysfunction where the energy producing powerhouse of the cell is not functioning properly either from toxins, nutrient deficiency, inflammation and infection or other underlying causes.
We commonly also find thyroid dysfunction, hypothyroidism, and other hormone imbalance, adrenal fatigue, mineral deficiencies and emotional trauma as other underlying factors that must be addressed.
At Advance Health Functional Medicine we regularly treat patients suffering from symptoms of Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia with great success. Many of these patients have seen numerous other physicians of different specialties and even been seen at centers dedicated to chronic fatigue and Fibromyalgia and are still suffering from symptoms when they arrive at our clinic.
It is important to note that chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia are not diseases on their own, but have underlying treatable multifactorial causes. Therefore we try to shy away of labeling patients with diagnoses such as these that in a way can be crippling, hindering their path to recovery and wellness and rather focus on treating the underlying causes and restoring balance and homeostasis in the body.
By focusing on the underlying factors that create symptoms of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia we have great success in treating our patients as well as empoweringthem with the truth behind their symptoms and the actual tools they need for recovery and healing, rather than just a chronic diagnosis..
