Fibromyalgia Information

Can you imagine arthritis of the muscle? Thatís how one patient described her fibromyalgia symptoms. Calcium depositing outside of the bone causes or worsens arthritis.

Unknown toxins deposited within the muscle fibers cause fibromyalgia. According to the traditional medical community, the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown. They blame physical or emotional trauma as playing a role in the development of the syndrome.

A number of lines of evidence suggest that fibromyalgia patients have abnormal pain transmission responses. I believe toxins cause fibromyalgia, and the bodyís inability to eliminate those toxins sets up its transmission of pain receptors within the muscle fibers.

Fibromyalgia and Aspartame

Fibromyalgia is now a common condition characterized by widespread pain in joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues. Some other problems commonly linked with fibromyalgia include fatigue, morning stiffness, sleep problems, headaches, numbness in hands and feet, depression, and anxiety ≠ all aspartame symptoms.

Diagnosis of fibromyalgia requires a history of at least three months of widespread pain, and pain and tenderness in at least eleven of eighteen tender-point sites. These tender-point sites include fibrous tissue or muscles of the neck, shoulders, chest, rib cage, lower back, thighs, knees, arms, elbows, and buttocks. The overwhelming characteristic of fibromyalgia is long-standing, body-wide pain with defined tender points. Tender points are distinct from trigger points seen in other pain syndromes. Unlike tender points, trigger points can occur in isolation and represent a source of radiating pain, even in the absence of direct pressure.

Fibromyalgia pain can mimic the pain experienced by people with various types of arthritis. With fibromyalgia syndrome, the significant joint swelling, destruction, and deformity seen in patients with diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis does not occur, which supports the source of pain to toxins deposited within the tissue fibers. The soft-tissue pain of fibromyalgia is described as deep aching, radiating, gnawing, shooting or burning, and ranges from mild to severe.
