A NEW BLOOD TEST for FIBROMYALGIA! The article says it's 99% ACCURATE!



A NEW BLOOD TEST for FIBROMYALGIA! and it says to be 99% ACCURATE!

I know MANY of you that will be glad to hear this one... they are now saying they have a "blood test" that ia supposed to be 99% ACCURATE in determining whether you have FIBROMYALGIA!!!! NOT that anyone WANTS to hear that they do, BUT for so many years, especially WOMEN have been led to believe it was "all in our heads", or we were too "stressed" or "depressed" or, or ... whatever type of "so called diagnosis"... just to get them "satisfied"... 

I went through this years ago.. when I have the Migraines so badly they would send me to the ER - at times 3 or more times a month! I went to every "known specialist", every medication, from antidepressants, that didn't do a thing buy make me tired and worse.  I went through injections into my spinal fluid, into my "occipital nerves" at the base my neck, the "Imitrex" that I had severe side effects from, and come to find out, those medications I should have never been given due to my heart... I was even given "Thorazine" and the worst was that is given for "bi-polar" disorder, and it built up "toxins in my blood". One day at work, (when I worked in fact at the hospital in Corsicana in the business office - between 1990 to 1996... and I was with a patient at my desk and suddenly, I began "talking about all kinds of things" and had no clue why? I started talking about "bathing suits", and I "knew" something was very wrong.. I accused myself, and honestly thought I was having a stroke, and went down to the ER only to find the "Lithium" was building up so high in my blood stream, 

It was causing me to hallucinate,... then of course therapists, psychologists... even "bio-feedback"  and they even put me as an inpatient at the hospital for 3 days to give me some medication like Imitrex that is a vasoconstrictor.. and it was that "dangerous" I had to be in the hospital and wear a heart monitor while they gave me this medication by IV... t was totally insane what I went through between the mid 80's even until 1999 or so. And as I said come to find out several of those medications I should HAVE NEVER been given. I had my 1st heart attack at 40 in 2000.... not all that long after all of those things took place. Yet for DECADES like you hear many especially women say, if they had tested me further for RA, Lupus, and other types of autoimmune illnesses, 

I believe they would have found the Lupus, which causes severe Migraines and that only thing that helps a Lupus Migraine for me is an injection of corticosteroids, to bring down the inflammation... although a Lupus Migraine is different than other types, which for years from the time I was 17 I had developed "Migraines"... so now that I am off on that tangent...(this article struck a nerve with me since Fibromyalgia was one of the "junk diagnosis" as some call them that doctors gave us when they could not "find anything else wrong" it was ONE of the many I was given and back then honestly, doctors had no clue what it was, just a at the time "rare mysterious illness" that had popped up at the very 1st I believe in Colorado. I will have to verify that, but a small town there "suddenly" had many of it's long time "well" residents suddenly come down with this list of symptoms" and it put many of them in bed, they had to quit their jobs, and it was really a nightmare... d to be 99% ACCURATE in determining whether you have FIBROMYALGIA!!!!

NOW they have came a very long way in getting to the bottom of this still kind of mysterious host of symptoms, that can often mimic other types of chronic illnesses.

"RA" is not a "serious" of a medical issue as before? Really!?

https://creakyjoints.org[mycred_affiliate_link]


The REALLY sad truth from this story, and from others, is that "some" people actually believe this. If we are not limping and carrying a cane, or in a wheelchair, have a walker or even go out in the public looking "half decent" with makeup on and your hair not a mess. The very first thing I hear is WOW, you must be better!" Better from When? Really? Better from when I was almost screaming in pain earlier today with my back and hips? From 2 weeks ago, when I just didn't feel well enough to "dress up with my makeup"? The other sad fact, and I know it to be true... if you are ill, in pain, especially chronic pain, and you are seeing your doctor, at times I have went in, maybe deciding not to look so horrible... so I do put a bit of color on my cheeks and a swipe or two of mascara... you can almost bet the doctor does NOT take you as seriously as they do when you walk, crawl, or come in looking like the "death has been warmed over".... not all of them, but I have seen it more times than not... so, especially if I am going in for something like chronic or new pain, bad enough I am willing to do just about anything to get rid of it.... I sure as heck don't go "looking" okay. I don't put makeup on (I don't usually feel like it anyway)... but I realized years ago, you as a whole may not be taken as being in that much pain, if you are not wincing and in tears.... also MEN are taken much more seriously, as a whole when they go into the doctors office, especially with pain, than women. We, as women have seen it, been there, done it, bought the shirt, jacket and book... Men have it much simpler. As a whole, they go in and tell their physician the issues at hand, and usually they will get the treatment they need. At times women must jump over hoops, and hope for the best. It is better than it used to be, but how many of us have been told... you are too emotional, you think about it too much, maybe it is hormones, are you stressed, maybe you just overdid lawn work, or have you been out and about shopping to much?? Those are just a few.... So, when this story came to me via email, I knew I needed to share it. I will also put this up on my blog..
