Despite a large and growing body of research on fibromyalgia and a number of hypotheses as to what causes it and how it can potentially be treated, the condition remains somewhat of an undefined mystery, leading to misdiagnoses, mistreatment, and continued suffering on behalf of those who are left to deal with the symptoms on a daily basis. Dr. David Brady is a leader in the area of fibromyalgia diagnosis, treatment, and management, as well as the other of The Fibro Fix: Get to the Root of Your Fibromyalgia and start Reversing Your Chronic Pain and Fatigue in 21 Days.
He joins the podcast today to discuss how fibromyalgia differs in important ways from chronic fatigue syndrome and other conditions which can share some of the same signs, the bias regarding fibromyalgia that has begun to dissolve but still exists within conventional medicine, the myths about fibromyalgia that can be dispelled by legitimate research on the condition, a unique brain pattern that occurs in patients with fibromyalgia during sleep and how it contributes to “unrefreshed sleep,” why most of the pharmaceuticals prescribed for patients with fibromyalgia don’t work, and more importantly, what does work. He also discusses the role of past or childhood trauma in the manifestation of the condition, and how he goes about evaluating and addressing the needs of each patient on an individual basis.
