New Treatment For For People With Fibromyalgia
If you have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, you have probably seen over a dozen doctors and they have ruled out MS. They have ruled out rheumatoid arthritis. They have ruled out lupus and now you have the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia. Since you are reading this post, either you or someone you love have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and what I am here to share with you today is what makes us different from all those other doctors that you have seen for this condition.
First of all, we treat patients neurologically as well as metabolically and I am going to go over that for you. What we are going to talk about first is how we test and identify metabolic problems and how we treat those. When we do our testing we leave no stone unturned to try to find the cause of your Fibromyalgia. Did you read that? The cause of your Fibromyalgia.
If you are like many of the Fibromyalgia patients I’ve treated, you’ve been to dozens of doctors. You were probably prescribed Amitriptyline or Neurontin. You are probably taking Ambien or Clonazepam. You have probably taken numerous over the counter medications and probably tried anti-depressants or anti-anxiety medication. Maybe you are on Lyrica ,an anti-seizure drug, it’s not the Fibromyalgia cure all. All these drugs are designed to do is stop your brain from feeling the symptoms that you are receiving from your condition. In other words, we are just trying to cover up the light on the dash board that is telling us something is wrong.
Nobody’s identified the actual problem that is causing your Fibromyalgia condition.
In our office we are willing to find the cause and we are going to do it through extensive testing.
We are going to start by doing blood tests. These tests are going to help us find out what’s actually happening in your body. We are going to do a thyroid panel. We are going to do a complete metabolic panel. We will check your lipid panel and we will also do a CBC with auto differential. In other words, we are going to find out what your red blood cells and white blood cells are telling us about what is happening in your body.
