Fibromyalgia News Today: 9 possible causes of fibromyalgia to discuss with your doctor

My view of fibromyalgia has changed since my diagnosis. I now believe fibromyalgia is a symptom of a deeper problem with the body. This article lists some of the potential underlying causes for fibromyalgia symptoms.   


PowerHealthTalk.com: Autoimmune diseases – reason for the dramatic increase (YouTube video, 32 minutes)

Technically, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue and Lyme are not widely considered to be autoimmune conditions, but they do have autoimmune components, and I suspect research will eventually confirm they fall into the autoimmune category. In this video, Drs. Martin Rutherford and Randall Gates (who both consider fibro to be an autoimmune condition) discuss why there is a modern day epidemic of autoimmunity. They have an interesting point of view. 


Real Food Rebel: 12 myths I ignored to reverse 20 years of chronic illness

I’m a big fan of Brenda Cosentino’s blog in which she shares how she healed Lyme, fibromyalgia and several other chronic illnesses naturally. In this post, she contradicts advice we’ve been given by doctors and other health experts for years. Yes, I know some of you are going to disagree with her unconventional approach, and that’s ok. 


The Lyme Road: 5 tips to treat Lyme disease when you’re on a budget

Chronic Lyme can be super expensive to treat since most Lyme specialists don’t accept insurance. Here are some tips to make treatment more affordable.

Reader’s Digest: I had no idea I had fibromyalgia; here’s how I finally got diagnosed

Reader’s Digest has published an article on the controversial FM/a blood test for fibromyalgia. Yep, there is a blood test for fibromyalgia; you just may not have heard of it because it’s not widely accepted.

You can read my previous article about the FM/a test here and about EpicGenetics’ possible vaccine for fibromyalgia here

Free magnesium spray…

My longtime readers know I’m a BIG fan of magnesium because I’ve found it decreases overall soreness, reduces restless legs/cramps and helps with sleep. I supplement with magnesium and also use it topically.

In August, I included an offer from Soothe Magnesium for a free bottle of magnesium spray in one of my weekly news posts. I’m excited to share that offer again! Soothe Magnesium is now an advertiser on my site and is offering a free bottle of their magnesium spray (just pay shipping) to FedUpwithFatigue.com readers.

If you’re on a desktop computer, you’ll find Soothe Magnesium’s ad for the free bottle near the top of the page on the left side right under my bio. If you’re on mobile, scroll down until you see the picture of me holding my kitty, and the ad will be right underneath my bio.

    I love the video of the 2 doctors. I’ve watched some of their others in the past. They always make so much sense. I absolutely agree with them in this one! I’m on a journey of realization of what foods and stress do to and have done to my body. I know my body well and am now always aware of when food and stress effect my gut and my fatigue issues. Thank you for posting it Donna!
    By the way… I purchased the refurbished Quell device this week for my chronic spine pain condition.
    I started using it just yesterday and I believe I’m a believer! It already definitely helps me cope with my high pain levels better and it even seems to give me energy. I can’t wait to see how it effects me in the long run and hopefully bring me to be able to use less meds

      Hi Maureen, I’m so glad the Quell is helping! Let me know how it goes!
      I agree with you – I think food and stress are critical pieces to managing our symptoms.
      I just love Drs. Rutherford and Gates – I think they are way, way, way ahead of most doctors. Wish I had the funds to go to Reno to work w/ them.

    my name is julie. my family offers no support and says its not real. my doctors have said other wise. i have severe fatigue i go down for a nap wake up the next day. i also have been diagnosed with platybasia, chairi malformation and just recovered for acdf surgery in february 16th 2017. it would be nice to know if there are any support groups in san mateo where i live.

  3. Keep in mind anyone interested that the lightning process trial was poorly conducted, that it is an expensive sham treatment used to exploit desperate ill people, and adults who have tried it have at best had it not work and at worst gotten significantly sicker. This lightning process trial was part of a major propaganda scheme that falls directly inline with the controversial and bad science of the PACE trial. At the very least have the decency not to abuse children with this nonsense, even if you find it acceptible to try on yourself.

  4. I’m fed up with Fibromyalgia big time since 1997.
    I’m 72 years old. I need help. I’m on Tramadol
    3x a day. Let me know about some information
    That would help me if possible. Blessings, Faye

    I have been ill with this since I was 18 now I am in my seventies. Just recently I found that with other things I have used and am still using NET homeopath remedy for PAIN really works for me. Just thought I would put it out there to see if anyone has had the same experience.
