   My name is Amanda Elise Love and  I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 9 years ago which influenced my decision to enter the field of nutrition and now I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist who works with those who are suffering from fibromyalgia. 

 The definition from the Mayo Clinic !!

Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain which is accompanied by fatigue, poor sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.

Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or long term stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

Women are more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. The prevalence of fibromyalgia is between 5 and 10 million people.

 Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, (TMJ) A jaw disorder, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.

How are you diagnosed with fibro ? 

Diagnosis

In the past, doctors would check 18 specific points on a person’s body to see how many of them were painful when pressed firmly. Newer guidelines don’t require a tender point exam. Instead, a fibromyalgia diagnosis can be made if a person has had widespread pain for more than three months with no underlying medical condition that can cause the pain.

Did you  know that there is actually a blood test for fibromyalgia?

 It is called the FM/a test !!

The FM/a test is a laboratory-developed test as defined by the FDA. It’s simple and requires less than an ounce of blood. With a few exceptions, the FM/a® Test is available in most every state . I will put the link in my shownotes where you can obtain information about the FM/a test. 

What happens if you get the blood test and it is positive or if you are already diagnosed with fibro ?  So where do you turn now ?
