I am so sorry for all you and Lady Gaga suffering from fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is not always so typical as ACR description. its always many of sub type,In my experience there are over 10 percent female (age between 20 to 80)suffered from sub type of fibromyalgia ,symptoms such as headache,migraine,dizziness,neck stiffness,frozen shoulder even extend to forearm,low back pain,upper back pain,bilateral low abdominal pain ,lower abdominal pain sometimes the pain will extend to thigh even lower leg ,and foot,numbness of extremities,chest distress,palpitation,epigastric pain,bloating,constipation,diarrhea,general malaise,insomnia,urine frequency even urinary incontinence,dry eyes,…….for more 10 years even more…all image and scan, lab test are normal, every doctor:orthopedist,rehabilitation,cardiologist,gastroenterogist,neurologist,gynecologist, all say :you are normal. at last you are introduced to psychologist,your children and husband cannot understand what the situation is.
I know its real,lt is miserable no body can understand unless they are suffering.
1976 Dr P.K.Hench used the term fibromyalgia described chronic widespread pain the above symptoms can anchored a name.since 1976 till now.
no exact cause,no exact diagnosis,no exact treatment.
I am a family physician and gynecologist in Taiwan Kaoshium Ciao Tou,
I have been treating hundreds of sub type of fibromyalgia the symptoms above for a few years,the improve rate about 70 percent to 90 percent. Patient’s satisfaction rate are over 80 percent; even to 100 percent.
