In both fibromyalgia and in neuropathy, patients often experience tingling, numbness, and significant amounts of pain. This is not at all surprising, since recent research suggests that many fibromyalgia patients actually have small-fiber neuropathy.
We have long suspected this, however, since one of our observations many years ago was that many fibromyalgia patients respond very well to our neuropathy treatment programs, with some specific modifications. That’s why, right now, effective treatment depends so much upon the skill as well as the time and interest of the clinician.
And the reason for this should be very obvious. Once we understand as much as we possibly can about what may be underneath your symptoms, then we can begin the most effective treatment plan possible.
One of the most common things we see as doctors every day is how deeply rooted lifestyle and personal habits are linked to so many health problems. Fibromyalgia and neuropathy are no exception.
In both fibromyalgia and in many cases of neuropathy, patients are frequently overweight and in poor physical condition. Now, as you might expect, this is not at all uncommon. Often times this “deconditioning” has been present for years.
Contributing factors to this include things such as poor diet, and, yes, even health problems like underlying thyroid disease and possibly more serious disorders. So the best approach for both doctors and patients while attempting to calm pain is to look deeply for underlying causes.
And this goes double for those patients who suffer neuropathy or fibromyalgia and related chronic pain conditions! If you are serious about getting real professional help we invite you to reach out to us personally using the contact info below.
