In my last post I advised you to avoid the trap of letting doctors attribute every new symptom you have to your 'fibromyalgia'. Sometimes doctors get lazy if you give them an excuse. Many of them use a fibromyalgia diagnosis as just THAT excuse.
Today I want to share fibromyalgia treatment mistake #2. I hope that as I share these pearls of wisdom with you over the next few weeks that it serves as a guide that will empower you to make the best decisions possible.
Fibromyalgia Treatment Mistake 2:Falsely Believing That All Of The 'Correct' Tests Have Been Done, And That Everything On Your Lab Reports Is 'Normal'.
This is a huge trap fibromyalgia patients fall into, that you absolutely must avoid.
Where my Institute is located in Central California, many local fibromyalgia patients have traveled to one of the big diagnostic clinics such as Stanford Medical, The Sansum Clinic, or UCLA Medical.
They go there, spend a couple days doing tests, and then come out with the same thing they had before: a report that says that the labs are 'normal' and a diagnosis of fibromyalgia.
Then the patient is falsely satisfied, feeling that EVERYTHING has been done, and they continue on the path of taking medications or just living with the pain, fatigue, and the rest of the symptoms that go along with it.
The truth is zero functional testing has been done. They may have ran MRI's and didn't see obvious abnormalities. They ran the basic blood work and it didn't appear to be abnormal, and then they call it a day.
If you accept that everything has been done, then you have lost at that point, because you will stop searching for answers and information that will help you.
You may never make it to a doctor who does functional testing, and will look at functional ranges, and put all of the pieces together for you.
So don't accept fibromyalgia as your life sentence. You deserve to feel well. It is possible.
Be on the lookout for the next blog post in a couple days... Mistake #3 is very common, and best to completely avoid.
