It used to be called fibrositis, or myofascial pain, myofascial pain syndrome, psychogenic rheumatism, fibromyositis, search the web myofasciitis, tensionmyalgia, or psychological muscle disorder.

  2. 2. Chronic muscular pain is just one facet of this syndrome; it runs much deeper thanjust sore and aching muscles or joints. Just living with gravity and our modern daystress can cause much of the soreness and muscle tension that most peopleexperience. However, when we have the condition of fibromyalgia, or myofascial Financepain syndrome, all of the stress and tension is intensified ten- fold. HotelsThe chronic pain can be regional, myofascial pain syndrome (in the connective Furnituretissue or muscles) or widespread fibromyalgia with overall aches and painsaccompanied by neurological and other problems. The condition can be very severe Gamesand has many faces. InsuranceSince mostly women suffer from fibromyalgia, most experts think it is connected to Carsthe hormone estrogen. It could be an estrogen insufficiency or certain hormonal Movieschanges that affect the muscle pain. Its usually found in women over thirty. MapsI have never heard of males with this condition in my thirty years of experience. I Loanhave known only a few women that actually were diagnosed with this condition. MusicThe pain of fibromyalgia is different in every individual and has no limits; Travelsometimes its a dull pain and other times sharp. It can be numbness on thesurface of the skin or deep, muscular aching that is dull, shooting, burning,throbbing or stabbing, sharp pain. Most often, the pain and stiffness are worse inthe morning, and its not unusual to hurt in the muscle groups that are used moreoften: upper neck, shoulders, low back, hips, and legs. In fact, often every joint mayhurt. Here again it varies with the person. Their activities or jobs, as well as theirmechanical postures, can dictate where they will suffer most.The Chronic fatigue has been described as " feeling unmotivated" or " having mentalfatigue." Some patients told me if they could get the strength to get out of bed thenthey could deal with the rest of the day. PDFmyURL.com
  3. 3. Chronic Headaches Recurrent migraine or tension type headaches are seen in about50- 60% of fibromyalgia patients and can pose a major problem. Just dealing withthe daily activities of life can be a struggle for these patients.Most have a sleep disorder called the alpha- EEG anomaly. This means that theydont get to the deeper levels of sleep and they are constantly interrupted byawakening brain activity. Thus, when they wake up they feel that they didnt get anyrest and the body did not get a chance to recover. This condition creates addedstress, which keeps them in the vicious cycle. One of my patients said she felt likeshed been run over by a truck when she got up every morning. Another one isMyoclonus or PLMS (nighttime jerking of the arms and legs), restless leg syndrome,and bruxism (teeth grinding).Temperomandibular Joint Dysfunction Syndrome (TMJ) is connected with theheadaches or face pain in 25- 30% of FMS patients. Research indicates thatas many as 90% of fibromyalgia patients may have jaw and facial tenderness thatcould produce the same symptoms of TMJ.Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Its common for many of these women to have bowelproblems, constipation or diarrhea. Frequent abdominal or chest pain is also notuncommon. These symptoms are found in 60% to 70% of fibromyalgia patients,according to the research, in addition to PMS and painful menstrual periods(dysmenorrhea).Other common symptoms include muscle numbness and or tingling sensations;muscle twitching; swollen extremities, dry skin or skin sensitivity, dry eyes andmouth; diz z iness and impaired coordination. Often patients experience sensitivity toweather or wind, rain, and changes in temperature. Hormonal fluctuations(premenstrual and menopausal states), depression, anxiety and overexertion can all PDFmyURL.com
  4. 4. contribute to symptom flare- ups.The holistic approach seeks to approach the problem on all levels- - mental,nutritional, and physical. Each aspect of these problems needs a specific modality ortherapy. We recommend the use of conventional medicine with nutritional, herbal,biochemical nutrients, bio- mechanical body therapy, and mind- body methodsdesigned to enhance the bodys own natural healing systems.We know that the best way to approach a vague disease is to use conventionalholistic practices such as good nutrition, lower fat intake (especially the saturatedfats), less sugar and fewer junk foods. Increase water intake for flushing the systemand increase intake of anti- oxidants Vitamins C, E, beta carotene, and a good multi-vitamin, with increased doses of cell salts and selenium. Some medical experts sayphosphatigylserine, which is a lipid (fat processor) and gingko biloba can also helpease the condition. Also, adding fish oil capsules.From a natural perspective, GABA itself is available from the health food stores overthe counter. Again, I just want to caution anyone self- medicating, even with naturalsubstances.Magnesium- calcium and selenium supplements also may help by acting on some ofthe same neural and muscle receptor sites that GABA influences.About 80% of our chronic pain patients are deficient in magnesium. Thats becausephysical pain (and also mental anguish) cause the muscles to overwork and themuscles use up much more magnesium than normal. This is a reason why manyathletes need extra magnesium as well.Ironically, the muscles really need that magnesium to function and not havingenough of it increases muscle spasm and pain, as well as the general vulnerability to PDFmyURL.com
  5. 5. stressful stimuli such as loud noises, chemicals, and emotional distress. So thishyper- sensitivity puts people in that kind of vicious cycle.Many of these patients have hypoglycemia or blood sugar control problems as well.This is normally due to the stress of their illness on the glucose/insulin system.Excess stress causes the body to be on high alert. Consequently, the dietaryguidelines described above could be very helpful in conjunction with a few quickand helpful nutritional tricks. A small supplementation of olive oil, chromium, orglutamine can usually reverse this common complication.Natural remedies to help sleep are valerian root, 5- hydroxy tryptophan, passionflower, GABA, and melatonin. Relaxation or meditation training and other naturalapproaches can do much to restore good sleep. This is a bit more complicated thanit sounds; we advise that you consult with a professional. Of course, somemedicines can also help with sleep as long as care is taken to not create a habit ordependence on these drugs. Reducing alcohol as well as reducing caffeine andsugar will help the body sleep better.The most interesting recent research is that the kinds of medicine that work best forfibromyalgia and myofascial pain are not the traditional narcotic pain suppressorssuch as vicodine, codeine, or the highly potent, non- steroidal, anti- inflammatorymedicines such as Celebrex or muscle relaxers such as Flexeril.The best medicines acrording to Dr. Podell to use instead are those that act on ournervous system and neurochemistry to reduce and reverse allodynia, the bodysabnormal increased sensitivity to that pain.The most surprising news is that many of the best new medicines are actually oldstandbys that have been used for many years for other conditions. Because of thecomplexity of fibromyalgia, we are just re- discovering the beneficial effects for PDFmyURL.com
  6. 6. helping the neuro- chemistry. Some of the common medicines used are Baclofen,Elavil, Flexeril, Gabatril, Klonopin, Neurontin, Paxil, Sinequan, Serz one, Xanax, andZ ofran.The above medications, of course, can cause some side effects in some people, sosee your doctor for any questions you may have.Biochemistry and MetabolismSince every body is very individual there are laboratories specializ ing in diagnosisthat can help us detect metabolic imbalances and dysfunctions.1. Essential fatty acid analysis which often shows a deficiency of omega- 3 essentialfatty acids. Certain amino acids analysis often shows a deficiency of the chainrelationship of amino acids, with glutamine, taurine, tryptophan or tyrosine beingthe most common.2. Other theories pertaining to alterations in neurotransmitters like serotonin andnor epinephrine. As mentioned before, substance P has an immune system function.Substance P is a pain neurotransmitter that has been found by repeat studies to beelevated three- fold in the spinal fluid of fibromyalgia patients. Two hormones thathave been shown to be abnormal are cortisol and growth hormone (HGH).3. A comprehensive digestive and stool analysis can point to digestive enz ymedeficiencies, yeast, candida or Epstein- Barr, bacterial overgrowth, or even parasites,which most people will have. The key is your immune system can usually handle itand when it cant then you succumb to worse problems.I feel that enhancing or strengthening the immune system is the best way toimprove health with any disease.4. Food allergies can be tested for as well or detected by going on an elimination PDFmyURL.com
  7. 7. diet. " Sensitive" food allergies can be identified that can make pain symptomsworse. Be careful with cleansing diets as I have found most people need buildingfoods first due to poor eating habits. Urine tests for milk- or wheat- derived opioidpeptides can pinpoint digestive abnormalities that lead to toxic by products. Wehave found most people are allergic to dairy products as well as to gluten found inwheat products.5. We used to do hair analysis or DMSA provoked urine testing to detect high levelsof toxic metals like mercury or lead. Now we have many other systems fordiagnosing and finding problems of that nature.6. Checking the liver functions and enz yme levels is another way to find problemsas the liver is a key organ for cleansing the body.7. Ordering a screening T4/TSH is a good first approach as well. Many of thesymptoms of fibromyalgia mimic hypothyroid muscular disease. Your doctor shouldorder a screening thyroid test as part of the initial workup of fibromyalgia.8. Checking for hyperthyroid is also done quite easily in the laboratory. Just makesure you are working with someone that takes the time to eliminate other potentialproblems that could appear as FMS.Body- Therapy and Mind- Body TherapiesGreat relief may come with just getting massage, however, it can also aggravateyour condition so usually gentle massage is recommended and not deep tissuework. One of the best techniques for these painful bands is DTF (Deep TransverseFriction), made popular by Dr. James Cyriax. You should see a professional massagetherapist trained in this technique.Trigger point therapy is another technique that helps reduce the stress in the PDFmyURL.com
  8. 8. tissues and also should be done with great care. As you will find, within these tautbands of muscle are extraordinarily sensitive pain points.There is in the realm of body- mind techniques several that have proven effective inneurological balancing. The most popular and widely used are Traggering andFeldenkrais created by two extraordinary people who were pioneers in body- mindtherapy. Milton Tragger was an M.D., a neurosurgeon who created a movement typeof treatment that is gentle and achieves deep levels of relaxation through rockingmotions. He was a friend and I got to know him in Honolulu and experience hiswork directly. We exchanged a few sessions with each other. It is very great, gentlesystem of work, soothing to the nervous system.Feldenkrais was once associated with Ida Rolf, the mother of Rolfing. Rather thandoing deep body work on the fasciae like Rolfing, Feldenkrais worked with certainbody postures and movements to free up the patterns in the body since it often fallsinto poor posture and pain. Using movement and re- education of the body was hisapproach. His theory was to break up the neurological patterns of pain andrestrictive movement.There are a few others that are similar: Aston patterning, Alexander Technique, andcertain types of polarity therapy can all be helpful. Often its not the technique asmuch as the belief of the effectiveness of the therapy by the patient.More Mind TechniquesOf course, one of the best mental treatments for chronic pain and chronic illness,which takes a psychological toll on the mind as well as the body, is bio- feedbacktraining, or some kind of relaxation or meditation techniques. These systems havebeen around for thousands of years, and only in their application do we think theyare new. PDFmyURL.com
  9. 9. There is a very useful technique call Neuro- Linguistic Programming or NLP, anothermental tool that changes the physiology by focusing on a positive new patternrather than on the old problem. And all of Tony Robinsons work is very powerful fortransformations. I was lucky to have met him in the old days when I gave him atreatment and took all his seminars.Just good old- fashioned deep breathing can do wonders for the pain and the stresslevel of any individual. Yoga and all the many forms of movement as we talkedabout before, tai chi or ballroom dancing, for anyone for that matter, may behelpful.What To Do If You Have FMSIn the long term, the most important thing you need to understand is that the firststep is to understanding your fibromyalgia syndrome. We know that it can bechronic, but the symptoms or your episodes may flare up - or mellow out. This, wefeel, can depend on your stress level, as well as what you have been doing to workon improving your condition. The impact that FMS has on daily living as well asactivities is going to be different with each individual. It is commonly accepted thatFMS can be as serious as rheumatoid arthritis in disabling people from workingfulltime jobs.Many patients have felt helpless or hopeless, and generally get very little relief orpoor results. We must remember the best results come from using all the tools andmethods available. It takes knowledgeable people as well as your commitment tobecoming informed to begin getting better. Know that FMS is not a life- threateningdisorder, although we cant say its harmless. Some on the far end of the spectrummay feel like they cant live like this, but on the other side, some people can do well PDFmyURL.com
  10. 10. and live a good life.Get your doctor to do the laboratory tests to rule out other possible maladies thatcan overlap or appear as FMS. One is hypothyroidism; it can be over- diagnosed butmost commonly its misdiagnosed. Fibromyalgia patients must have a good andthorough clinical diagnosis. Qualified medical doctors or osteopaths must make thisdiagnosis and ideally rule out other possibilities.This disease can be confused with or be similar to MS (multiple sclerosis), lupus,osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and even heart problems. You may have TMJ(temperomandibular joint syndrome), candida, Epstein- Barr syndrome, or CFS(chronic fatigue syndrome), or even Lou Gehrigs disease, a brain tumor, spinedisease or a whole bunch of other problems. The only way to know its FMS is torule out some of these others, and only a qualified medical or osteopathic doctorcan do this.Fibromyalgia Network for a listing of patient contacts and physician referrals.http://www.fibromyalgia.com The phone number is: (800) 853- 2929.For Othon see http://www.molinamassage.com for more information and otherarticles.May health be with you in all ways. . .Othon Molina Ph.d. c LMT has been involved in the health field as a manual therapist and personal trainerfor over thirty five years.
