Nov. 10, 2017 fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and Lyme news | Fed Up with Fatigue


Power Health Talk: Chronic fatigue – cutting through the B.S. (YouTube, 52, minutes)

Dr. Martin Rutherford and Dr. Randall Gates continue their “cutting through the B.S.” series with a video on chronic fatigue. These doctors are way ahead of most when it comes to treating fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and similar conditions. I’m sure that’s partially because Dr. Rutherford has fibromyalgia. Earlier this year, they released a “cutting through the B.S.” video on fibromyalgia. If you haven’t watched it, I recommend it highly. It’s one of the best fibromyalgia-related videos I’ve ever seen. I wish there were more doctors like Dr. Rutherford and Dr. Gates.

Practical Pain Management: A closer look at the interrelationship between fibromyalgia and GERD

From the article: “While the researchers were not able to offer a clear explanation for the apparent interrelationship between gastroesophageal reflux disease and FM, they pointed to depression as a possible precursor.”


Fibromyalgia News Today: Lyrica a better choice than opioids for harnessing fibromyalgia pain and its consequences

From the article: “Lyrica treatment was also superior to opioids or opioid-Lyrica combinations in improving pain-related aspects, such as ‘ability to enjoy life, activity in general, mood and sleep.'” For what it’s worth, the study was sponsored by Pfizer, the maker of Lyrica.

    Hi Donna, I was just wondering if you or anyone following your blog has completed Dr. Rutherford’s and Dr. Gates Power Health Program in Nevada? As you say they seem to be on the cutting edge of understanding and treating fibromyalgia and I would love to obtain first hand confirmation/recommendation from anyone who may have worked with them on treatment. Thank you

    • Donna Gregory/FedUpwithFatigue.com says

      I don’t know of anyone who has done their program. I wish I had the money for it. They seem to understand these conditions in a way that not many physicians do. I would love to work w/ them. If you do, please, please, please email me and let me know how it goes.

    Donna, thank you for the giveaway Entry! Hope I win! Lol.
    I’ve wanted to try your recommendation of Shaman but the price had turned me away, for now.
    I’ve been trying ‘hands on ‘and ‘energy path healing’ therapies lately and they both cost a lot.
    I’m always trying something! I do use water soluble CBD 250mg on occasion, from a local shop, just not sure if their product truly works.
    Keep up the awesome work, as ALWAYS, Maureen Mollico

      Good morning folk, I am hurting this morning, thanks for your article, always wondered what fibromyalgia was like, a doctor told me he thought I might have it. He just did not want to believe what my mri readings were saying,which were that I had cervical stenosis. Now, I also have spinal stenosis and scoliosis. This time of the year is rough for me. Pain is worse and time sits still. Well,just had some cereal and meds, good night.
