Fibromyalgia is a disease that has many symptoms and some of which can be confusing for people. So, if you thought it only affects the body’s energy levels and the only problem is muscle and tissue pain, you were wrong.
This type of disease can affect almost every aspect of a person’s life and it is time for us to know and give more understanding to those who suffer from it.
The first symptoms that come to mind are exhaustion and pain in all muscles, but these are not the only symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is different for each patient who suffers and affects each person differently. For example, fatigue and exhaustion during the day will be a major problem for someone whose sleep cycle is interrupted and who also suffers from fibromyalgia.
And this will usually cause depression and increased muscle pain. But the fact that this is the most common symptom of this disease does not mean that it is the only one that we should consider and consider.
There are many other people that a person with fibromyalgia struggles with every day. Most of the time, they are all closely related to each other and affect each other.
So, with this line of thinking, if there is a way to help treat a symptom, it will result in help for others.
Fibromyalgia often leaves the person tired and mentally confused. Many patients say they feel their brain is covered in fog.
50 to 70% of patients have chronic headaches and migraines, and occur at least twice a week.
Imagine living a normal life with this type of condition. This leaves the patient physically and mentally exhausted.
One of the symptoms that may have been overlooked is difficulty speaking when you have fibromyalgia.
Having language problems and speech problems can be very irritating and frustrating, especially when we live in a modern society where you constantly need clear communication of your thoughts and where you are constantly surrounded by others that I hope you speak easily and clearly.
Before your doctor has difficulty talking about fibromyalgia, verify that there are no underlying problems with the throat, ears or nose.
The nerve receptors of the person with fibromyalgia can be overwhelmed by the amount of information because pain receptors are constantly bombarded with information.
The pain signals are constant and too many stimuli from different sources can alter the brain and cause speech problems. People with fibromyalgia have the common problem of speaking clearly or remembering certain words sometimes. This can even lead to problems with writing or language comprehension.
Researchers still do not know exactly why fibromyalgia is the cause of these language problems, because dysphasia and aphasia are related to brain damage or degeneration, as in a stroke.
And for now, there is no indication that fibromyalgia can cause damage or degeneration of brain tissue.
We can hope that one day a link will be discovered between the two and that a treatment will be found, but before that, we must think of ways to make life easier for people with fibromyalgia.
People with this disease say that in most cases, the more tired and tired they are, the harder it is to speak.
They find themselves searching for the right word and they simply can’t think of it. Or the person must say a word that has no correlation with the conversion or his train of thought.
This is something that can be very frustrating when it starts to happen and it is good to find a help mechanism to help you.
It is important not to emphasize too much, because stress causes less sleep, more fatigue and exhaustion.
Try to keep a positive view of the whole problem and don’t blame yourself when it happens. Give yourself a few seconds, laugh if you can and move on.
Some days it won’t happen and other days, but there are ways to help it.
If you discover that the more you rest, you are trying to find ways to sleep better and more regularly.
Plan to go to bed every night at the same time and get up in the morning at the same time to see if it gives you more energy.
Or if you find it easier to write than talk for a while, contact people by SMS or email for a while. No matter how you feel relieved, it is a good way.
Because speech difficulties can be very frustrating. They can be unpredictable and people who don’t know you can get confused and impatient.
Be sure to explain to people that this is a symptom of a disease that you cannot control and does not define who you are as a person. And tell yourself too.
We have just seen that fibromyalgia has many symptoms and affects almost every aspect of a person’s life. But it is a disease against which one can fight and the patient’s condition can improve over time.
If all symptoms are related, speech and language difficulties can cause more stress, anxiety and exhaustion if you don’t know how to help yourself. Then, find small ways to feel better every day if you can.
