FIBROMYALGIA


You hurt all over, and you frequently feel exhausted. Even after numerous tests, your doctor can't find anything specifically wrong with you. If this sounds familiar, you may have fibromyalgia.


Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain in your muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as fatigue and multiple tender points — places on your body where slight pressure causes pain.Fibromyalgia is more common in women than in men. Previously, fibromyalgia was known by other names such as fibrositis, chronic muscle pain syndrome, psychogenic rheumatism and tension myalgias.


Although the intensity of your symptoms may vary, they'll probably never disappear completely. It may be reassuring to know, however, that fibromyalgia isn't progressive or life-threatening. Treatments and self-care steps can improve fibromyalgia symptoms and your general health.

Causes of Fibromyalgia
The cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown but appears to be multifactorial. Engel's biopsychosocial model of chronic illness (ie, health status and outcomes in chronic illness are influenced by the interaction of biologic, psychologic, and sociologic factors) is a useful way to approach fibromyalgia.



I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in April 2011. I get some medicine from my doctor and returned back to work after I take the 2 months sick leave.I took the medicine everyday but after the work I will still feel the pain. It makes me can't sleep for the hole night. After that I met a old friend, he told me that Master Leong can help me with some treatment. On the next day, I went to The Tole in KL and met Master Leong. Master Leong applied Neuro Acupuncture and gave me herbs. Now I can sleep very well after the work. All the pains is gone ! You should have a try if you are one of the people suffer in Fibromyalgia!
