Fibromyalgia Causes, Symptoms and Treatments
Pure refined emu oil is an all natural product that’s making a real difference for people suffering from fibromyalgia pain. If you’re struggling from this condition, then it’s your turn to experience the difference, too.
What are the symptoms of Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a complicated and often debilitating condition experienced by millions of Americans of all ages, although mostly women are affected. People with fibromyalgia experience pain and fatigue throughout their body, and tend to respond to pain more severely than people without the condition. Fortunately, even without a known cure, the disorder can be managed with the right diagnosis and treatment.
While each person with fibromyalgia can be affected differently, some of the most common symptoms include:
- Widespread pain throughout the body, including muscle aches and spasms, jaw pain, back pain, and chronic headaches
- Poor sleep, particularly difficulty with falling and staying asleep
- Fatigue and the feeling of weakness or "heaviness" in the arms and legs
Other abnormal symptoms include altered sensation in the skin (often described as numbness, tingling, or burning), impaired digestion (including diarrhea, bloating, and abdominal pain) and difficulty with exercising (which often exacerbates fibromyalgia pain).
What are the causes of Fibromyalgia?
The cause of fibromyalgia is not fully understood. Some researchers and doctors believe that the condition may be linked to traumatic events (like car accidents), certain diseases or illnesses, or even certain inherited genes.
A person may experience a worsening of symptoms depending on several triggers, including:
- Mental health, including depression, anxiety, and the way a person copes with stress
- Hormonal changes, especially as it relates to the menstrual cycle in women
- Environmental factors, including cold climates or sudden changes in weather
- Excessive physical exertion, especially for people with physically demanding jobs
What treatments are available for Fibromyalgia?
Because the symptoms, severity, and underlying triggers of fibromyalgia can be different from person to person, the treatment can vary as well. Comprehensive care often includes nutritional and mental health counseling to address physical and emotional needs. For treatment of pain, sleep disruption, digestive problems, and other symptoms, a doctor will often recommend prescription or over the counter medications.
As we know with many conventional drugs, however, the side effects of these medications can be just as troubling as the symptoms that they are supposed to resolve! These drugs often contain harmful chemicals and other components that render them risky and/or minimally effective. On top of these issues, "conventional" medications are often very expensive.
Enter Emu Joy. Many people with fibromyalgia seeking alternative methods of relief are finding great success with the regular use of our all natural emu oil-containing products.
How Can Emu Oil Help With My Fibromyalgia?
Emu Joy provides all-natural health and beauty products that do far more than just nourish and moisturize the skin.
For instance, people with fibromyalgia can find relief from many of their symptoms using our pain-relieving salve Banish My Pain.The key reason Banish My Pain is so effective for fibromyalgia pain is because it contains gentle yet powerful emu oil, which has been used for centuries to treat joint and body pain. Emu oil contains powerful antioxidants that can help reduce inflammation and soothe irritated joints, muscles, and skin. It's effective and safe enough to use even on its own in pure refined form.
In addition to its high concentration of emu oil, Banish My Pain contains other all-natural ingredients known to reduce pain and promote healing, including arnica, chamomile, cajeput, and lavender.
And because a common symptom of fibromyalgia is an extreme sensitivity to chemicals, Emu Joy is especially ideal for people with fibromyalgia, since all of our products are free of harmful and synthetic chemicals.
