I am not a doctor. This post is based on a combination of personal experience, messages I have gotten for clients that have, or think they have fibromyalga, and speaking with friends who have been diagnosed with fibromyalga.
It is amazing how many people are suffering from this. There are some things that over 90% of people with fibromyalga have in common:
Something major has changed in their life in the last two years
Career has become more stressful
They have started to live with someone or gotten married
They have had extreme financial difficulty
They have had an injury and have had to take time off
They have started taking a new prescription drug
If you have been diagnosed with fibromyalga, please take a look at what has been going on in your life. Most people say that it seemed to happen suddenly. The thing is, it takes time for your body to change once you change a habit.
Just as an example: You move in with your boyfriend. Your eating habits change, bit by bit, over time. You get busier. Take less time out for yourself at the gym because you are enjoying the company of your new mate. Over the course of a year or two, your habits become very different. Then one day, you get diagnosed.
Another example. You lose your job. You get a new job. Your new job isn’t exactly what you wanted, you are stressed out. You are not making as much money as you did before. You cannot afford to buy the best food, or you may just be too tired to cook. Maybe you eat out more or you eat more processed foods. You may not be able to afford as much fresh food, or organic food as you did before. You are tired, and flop after work, rather than going out to be with friends.
You have an injury or a surgery and are not as mobile as you were before. You have some down-time where you are unable to get out as much. You maybe put on a few pounds, or just don’t feel as energetic as you did before. After recouperating, you still don’t have as much energy and are not able to drag yourself to the gym, or out with friends.
Something has happened with your health. Whether it be hormones, blood pressure changes, or any other malady. Your doctor puts you on a pill. Sometime between about 6 months and 24 months later, you end up with fibromyalga.
This will not apply to 100% of you that have fibromyalga. And, once again, I am not a doctor. However, I have had clients with this disease where their guides have told me the cause of their illness, and in most cases, one of the above changes applies.
