From Pain To Freedom is the Latest Scientific and Natural Medicine Breakthroughs to Understand and Relieve the Symptoms of Fibromyalgia!
Second, if a diagnosis can be applied consistently, then better understanding of the condition and its current treatment may be gained. For example, a consensus on the diagnostic criteria for fibromyalgia has become more or less established (16). The result is that rheumatologists make the diagnosis with moderate reliability (17-19). Hopefully, this will have the effect of delineating a relatively uniform patient population so that the syndrome, its natural history, and appropriate treatment become better known.
Women with fibromyalgia sometimes present with CPP. Two criteria must be present for diagnosing fibromyalgia The patient reports pain in all four quadrants of the body, and detection of at least 11 separate areas (eg, knees, shoulders, elbows, neck) that are tender to physical pressure. Fibromyalgia Depression Somatization Substance abuse
Nonhormonally responsive diseases should be considered for pain that is not related to menses, including chronic pelvic inflammatory disease, adhesions inflammation from previous pelvic surgery, irritable bowel syndrome, diver-ticulitis, fibromyalgia, and interstitial cystitis.
Women in whom a particular disease process is suspected, such as adenomyosis, uterine leiomyomata, irritable bowel syndrome, interstitial cystitis, diverticulitis, or fibromyalgia should undergo further diagnostic testing and disease-specific treatment.
The search for additional indications for modafinil naturally focused on diseases associated with wake deficits and somnolence. The effects of the drug in an animal model of sleep-disordered breathing suggested that modafinil might be effective in reducing sleepiness associated with sleep apnea,50 and this was subsequently demonstrated in the clinic.51-53 Other disorders where somnolence or sedation was concomitant with the disease, e.g., Parkinson's disease,54-56 myotonic dystrophy,57-60 fibromyalgia,61 amyotrophic lateral sclerosis,62 multiple sclerosis,63 cerebral lymphoma,64 or resulting from the side-effects of other medications such as antidepressants,65 antipsychotics,66 dopaminergic D2 agonists,67,68 opioids,69 or valproic acid,70 have also proven to be amenable to treatment with modafinil.
Symptoms that may occur with MS have been investigated in people with other conditions. Anxiety, which occurs frequently in MS, may be reduced through hypnosis-induced relaxation. Also, hypnosis may be an effective therapy for pain, which may be a particularly bothersome symptom in MS. Hypnosis appears to relieve different types of pain, including headache and pain associated with surgery, cancer, and fibromyalgia, a rheumatologic condition. Hypnosis may be used during surgery to reduce the amount of anesthesia or to completely eliminate the need for anesthesia in some cases. Hypnosis also may be beneficial for insomnia. Among other neurologic disorders, some beneficial effects of hypnosis have been reported in people with strokes, head injury, and spinal cord injury.
Sleep can be impaired by dementia, Parkinson disease, dys-tonia, respiratory disturbances secondary to neuromuscular disease (muscular dystrophy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), epilepsy (nocturnal attacks), and headache syndromes (cluster headaches, migraine). Fatal familial insomnia is a genetic disorder of autosomal dominant inheritance (p. 252). Sleep disorders due to systemic disease. Sleep can be impaired by pulmonary diseases (asthma, COPD), angina pectoris, nocturia, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Nonspecific illness characterized by prolonged undulant fevers, chills, malaise, weakness, joint pain, early acute bloody diarrhea, later chronic fatigue and depression complications include osteomyelitis and SBE. Often misdiagnosed as fibromyalgia chronic fatigue syndrome. Differential diagnosis Streptococcal SBE, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia. Diagnosis Blood culture, antigen and antibody detection by ELISA.
A dermatome is defined as the cutaneous area whose sensory innervation is derived from a single spinal nerve (i.e., dorsal root). The division of the skin into dermatomes reflects the segmental organization of the spinal cord and its associated nerves. Pain dermatomes are narrower, and overlap with each other less, than touch dermatomes (p. 104) thus, the level of a spinal cord lesion causing sensory impairment is easier to determine by pinprick testing than by light touch. (The opposite is true of peripheral nerve lesions.) Radicular pain is pain in the distribution of a spinal nerve root, i.e., in a der-matome pseudoradicular pain may occupy a bandlike area but cannot be assigned to any particular dermatome. Pseudoradicular pain can be caused by tendomyosis (pain in the muscles that move a particular joint), generalized tendomy-opathy or fibromyalgia, facet syndrome (inflammation of the intervertebral joints), myelogelo-sis (persistent muscle spasm resulting from overexertion), and...
