As I've discussed before, the "energy crisis" seen in CFS and fibromyalgia triggers a malfunction in a main control center called the hypothalamus. This controls sleep, hormonal function, temperature regulation (98.6 is actually a fever in this illness), and autonomic function.

As he did so often in life, Prince is once again offering us the opportunity to heal a problem that desperately needs to be fixed.

It's suspected that Prince is unfortunately one of the 15,000 Americans who die each year with prescribed narcotics being a contributing cause. He had severe hip pain that didn't go away after his hip replacement surgery. To deal with the pain, he took the narcotic Percocet. It helped, but not enough. And so he joined the 33% of Americans who suffer needlessly with pain.

Problems With PACE Study on Exercise in Fibromyalgia

Published: December 4, 2015

It is not helpful that some fools use flawed research to show that fibromyalgia should be treated as if it is purely a psychological disorder. Sadly, there are those who attempt to use the PACE study (a 2011 study that used cognitive behavioral therapy as part of a CFS treatment trial) in this way.

Prescription Relief for Chronic Fibromyalgia Pain

Published: November 23, 2015

Once the biochemical root causes of the pain have been addressed, structural treatments such as chiropractic manipulation and massage (such as myofascial release) cannot only be helpful, but the treatments will hold for longer and longer until they are no longer needed. As an additional measure, you should address possible ergonomic problems such as uneven hip heights — for instance, make sure that your computer area has proper wrist and elbow support with your feet planted comfortably on the floor.

Natural Pain Relief When Recovering From Fibromyalgia

Published: November 10, 2015

I prefer to use a mix of natural and prescription therapies while going after the root causes of the pain, as this is most effective with the least side effects. While they may each be helpful, no single treatment is likely to give completely effective pain relief on its own, and they are best combined in an integrated program.
