This Condition Will Keep You Sick And Tired No Matter What You Do. In Order To Feel Good Again You Must Correct This Problem
There are many contributing causes of fibromyalgia symptoms. Fibromyalgia is just a name it doesn’t cause anything. In order to feel good again and stay that way, you must find and then fix, the underlying causes of your symptoms. One of the MANY underlying causes for many of my patients, is adrenal fatigue.
Has your get up and go got up and went? Do you battle low energy, chronic pain, brain fog, low moods, chronic fibro flares from the stress of overdoing it?
Join Me Each Tuesday Night For My FREE Treating And Beating Fibromyalgia Teleconference. This week I’ll be sharing my protocols for uncovering and fixing adrenal fatigue syndrome.
In my Treating and Beating Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome book, I talk a lot about, what I like to call, the stress-coping savings account. This is the storage of certain chemicals, vitamins, mineral, amino acids, and hormones that help you deal with stress on a day-to-day basis. Those with fibromyalgia usually deplete their stress coping account after years of chronic pain, poor sleep, and stress of having a chronic illness. Once you bankrupt your stress copping savings account, stress and pain becomes more magnified, and you start to notice you have more and more flares, especially when you over do it. This is s sure sign that you’ve also depleted your stress coping glands, known as the adrenals.
The adrenal glands are your stress-coping glands. They are responsible for excreting the hormones that help you deal with stress, such as cortisol and epinephrine. They are small, pea-sized glands located at the top of each kidney and have one of the most vital functions in the body. When these glands malfunction, especially in those with chronic pain syndromes, it leads to a host of other problems like exacerbated symptoms of fibromyalgia, increased pain, excessive fatigue, inability to tolerate certain noises, crowds, changes in the weather, and make it nearly impossible to deal with mundane activities like going grocery shopping, balancing the checkbook or cleaning the house.
The hormones released by the adrenal glands help regulate our energy, moods, sleep, level of pain, immune function, inflammation, and ability to handle stress.
Additionally, after midlife (around 50’s), these glands are responsible for releasing the sex hormones, which play a part in physical and mental well-being by regulating our mood and increasing libido.
In fact, malfunctioning adrenals, or the cortisol-control system, may be the primary cause of many or contribute to many of your fibromyalgia symptoms.
They include dizziness, diffuse achy pain, joint pain, excess fatigue, fibro fog, compromised immune system, depression, diarrhea, constipation, or abdominal pain. Additionally, blood sugar control is often a problem in those with adrenal fatigue and will usually feel anxious, run down, and depressed.
Once adrenal fatigue hits, the body has a hard time recovering for the chronic stress, and the resulting symptoms of fibromyalgia. A depleted stress coping savings account along with depleted stress coping glands, makes you defenseless against the constant challenges of daily life stress. Stress becomes magnified, more pronounced and leads to pain, fatigue, low moods, IBS, RLS, poor sleep, and other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia.
In order to have a chance to feel good again, and more importantly, stay that way, you must fix any adrenal fatigue issues.
