Nice testimonial. We can see that the arm pain could have been thoracic or cervical, neck spinal nerves.....IBT would start working on these and as soon as they released the arms would become mobile. Or if she saw a corrective chiropractor.....of which there are relatively few around. For home therapy IBT still rules!! Now if the spine corrected permanently...going back to sleeping flat wouldn't necessarily cause an immediate relapse....if the spine didn't correct...but every night IBT stretched it enough to nourish properly....there would be a relapse as soon as they slept flat. I think this is what sometimes happens...my 2 cents worth!! Still early times for me..keeping my senses open. Exciting stuff!
Interesting, a trapped nerve is usually a get out clause when people present symptoms the doctor does not understand sufficiently to make an accurate diagnosis. Another is some kind of viral infection. The problem in all fairness is that a GP's work load in the UK prevents them spending long enough with a patient to make a clear diagnosis.
A nerve problem could as you say cause pain and loss of movement in the arms and shoulders and could also cause muscles to atrophy, leading to a miss-directed diagnosis.
A brief search reveals that symptoms are exacerbated by bed rest. Now there's a surprise.
There are many theories as to the cause of fibromyalgia and
What is fibromyalgia? What causes fibromyalgia?
The word fibromyalgia comes from the Greek myos meaning "muscle", Greek algos meaning "pain", and New Latin fibro meaning "fibrous tissue".
Fibromyalgia is a common and chronic disorder. When a health illness or condition is chronic it means it is long-lasting.
Even though fibromyalgia is frequently referred to as an arthritis-related condition, it does not cause joint damage or inflammation, as arthritis does. Neither does fibromyalgia cause damage to muscle and other tissues. However, it is similar to arthritis because it causes severe pain and tiredness, and can undermine the patient's ability to go about his daily activities. Fibromyalgia is seen as a rheumatic condition. A rheumatic condition is one that causes joint and soft tissue pain. What are the signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia?
Irregular sleep patterns
IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)
Painful menstrual periods (Dysmenorrhea)
Hands and feet tingle and can feel numb
Restless leg syndrome
Sensitivity to cold or heat
Fibro fog (memory problems, cognitive problems).
The following signs and symptoms are also possible
Problems with vision
Pelvic and urinary problems
Cold/flu like symptoms
Jaw pain and stiffness
Myofascial pain syndrome (pain/tiredness in muscles and adjacent fibrous tissues)
DrClark found them riddled with parasites....the muscles!! But that could be a late stage scenario after the immune system is compromised. Interesting link up there. Agree with GPs not having enough time to diagnose...have friends like that. But then if they did spend enough time they wouldn't afford to pay for their food....whilst people with a tenth of their education levels drove around in sports cars. Sad.
Yes.....that's true. But another point is that after 7 years of hard schooling you expect to at least make a decent living. Poor doctors slave away with patient after patient....and there isn't enough hours in a day to make enough money if you calculate how much we pay a GP for a consultation. I have other friends who hardly went to school and are earning ten times what a doctor makes. The system itself is against making doctors effective. If a doctor became a millionaire by prescribing IBT believe me they wouldn't take long to grasp the principle.
Programming begins right back to our parents who teach us how to behave as society wants us to. This is then reinforced through education, religion and the media so that the majority of people accept their lot in life. Then they are milked like cash cows by those sitting on the money with consumerism, bad diets, bad medicine, and insurance.
When they sit in front of the television or listen to mainstream media, or read news papers, their programming prevents them from questioning everything and everyone.
From the cradle to the grave there will be someone selling us something we don't want, never have wanted and will never need like the bed they sleep in and the extravagant costs of getting married and eventually buried. Someone will have their hands in your pockets, but even money is a huge scam if you stop for a minute and think about it.
The strange people sitting on huge amounts of money have been programmed to believe that money is the be all and end all of everything, until their health is affected, then they too will fall victim of the programming.
