FIBROMYALGIA SYMPTOMS

The Monster List of Fibromyalgia Symptoms!
~
By Adrienne Dellwo, About.com Guide

You’ve probably read about fibromyalgia symptoms such as pain, fatigue and fibro fog, but the list of possible signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia are far-reaching and body-wide. Those tiny lists don’t even begin to describe our experience! I put together this “monster list” of 60+ fibromyalgia symptoms to let you know that you’re not alone! The list is adapted from one put together by fibromyalgia expert Devin Starlanyl along with recent research.

Many of these fibromyalgia symptoms also can be caused by other ailments and this list isn’t intended as a diagnostic tool. Knowing the full range of symptoms, however, can help you track them either to help your doctor reach a diagnosis or to help you identify triggers.

~ EHow …
Increase your magnesium levels in your body by soaking in Epsom salt bath water three times weekly. While it is extremely difficult to get enough magnesium in our systems through our diets, it is readily absorbs into our systems through our skin. Magnesium is needed by our bodies for many functions; however, a doctor should be consulted prior to extensive use, particularly for those with kidney problems. Magnesium works to activate many other enzymes our body needs.

Magnesium is useful in the treatment of asthma, COPD, fibromyalgia, ADD, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes, angina, cardiac arrhythmia, congestive heart failure, fatigue, kidney stones, migraine and tension headaches, complications due to pregnancy and premenstrual syndrome. Our bodies cannot properly use serotonin without the assistance of magnesium. Serotonin is a natural chemical created within the brain responsible for feelings of well being and relaxation. So maybe there is something to that saying “Calgon take me away”?

~ Dr Mercola … Importance of Magnesium is Far Greater than Previously Imagined… A number of studies have previously shown magnesium can benefit your blood pressure and help prevent sudden cardiac arrest, heart attack, and stroke. But its role in human health appears to be far more complex than previously thought, and—like vitamin D—its benefits may be more far-reaching than we’ve imagined. GreenMedInfo.com‘s database project has indexed over 100 health benefits of magnesium so far, including therapeutic benefits for: Fibromyalgia, Cardiovascular disease, Atrial fibrillation, Migraine, Type 2 diabetes, Aging, Premenstrual syndrome, Mortality… As you age: Age — older adults are more likely to be magnesium deficient because absorption decreases with age and the elderly are more likely to take medications that can interfere with absorption… Diabetes, especially if it’s poorly controlled, leading increased magnesium loss in urine…
