See what questions
a doctor would ask.
A 40 year old woman suffered severe symptoms following a car wreck and a bout of meningitis. She had low energy levels, depression and generally felt unwell. Depression treatment did nothing to help and she felt suicidal. A doctor finally diagnosed her with fibromyalgia. Her treatment involved pain medication, exercise band therapy, water consumption, massage and supplements. Fibromyalgia is an underdiagnosed condition that may effect up to 10 million US women. The condition is usually brought on by some mental or physical stress. Symptoms include body aches, fatigue, brain fog, irritable bowel syndrome and sleep disorder with many patients also suffering from thyroid, growth hormone, immune and blood clotting disorders.
