Common Causes Of Fibromyalgia Symptoms

Fibromyalgia is very common in those suffering from post-viral or post-bacteria-related diseases such as Epstein Barr, Lyme Infection, surgery, trauma, stress, and a toxic lifestyle.

Most people who have M.E. Myalgic Encephalomyelitis also have fibromyalgia symptoms but just because you have Fibro doesn’t necessarily mean you also have M.E. Fibromyalgia has been categorized as a syndrome while M.E is a disease. But recent research now suggests Fibromyalgia is actually an auto-immune condition.

There are many different opinions and research on the specific causes but we know things like diet, stress, and lifestyle can certainly increase the risk and heighten fibromyalgia symptoms. Many fibro sufferers can also struggle to detox effectively.

Recent research in July 2021 with the University of Liverpool and the Karolinska Institute and Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience (IoPPN) demonstrated that a lot of the “symptoms in fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) are caused by antibodies that increase the activity of pain-sensing nerves throughout the body.”

Now this suggests “fibromyalgia is a disease of the immune system” and that Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder. Now to treat any immune disorder it is important to have a clean healthy balanced diet, avoid toxins as much as you can, and of course, find natural ways to reduce your pain.

Symptoms Of Fibromyalgia

The main symptom of fibromyalgia is widespread pain all over the body and in key trigger points in certain areas of the body. So the pain of fibromyalgia is all over the musculoskeletal area and can be described as anything between a constant dull ache or extreme ache and inflammation. To be diagnosed with Fibromyalgia you normally have to have Fibro Symptoms for at least three months or a lot longer and the specialist can clearly see pain and tension in key trigger points in the body.
