Struggling with Chronic Fibromyalgia Autoimmune Pain symptoms?
When you are struggling with chronic fibromyalgia autoimmune pain symptoms day in and day out, it can become overwhelming. The pain and fatigue can be so intense. The lack of clarity in your mind, the ability to think clearly, often called fibro fog, can make it difficult to do even the most basic tasks. Add to this that many of us struggling with fibro or other autoimmune issues were very active take charge people previously, it can be too much to bear. Before you throw in the towel, know you are not alone. I also have struggled with Fibromyalgia symptoms back to 2002.
The definition of Fibromyalgia from the Mayo Clinic:
“Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain and spinal cord process painful and nonpainful signals.“
Autoimmune Pain and Crying Out For Help
Since Fibromyalgia is thought to affect sleep, mood and memory issues and to cause widespread pain, functioning on a daily basic can be greatly affected. Most of us dealing with autoimmune issues eventually end up at a Rheumatologist office because the symptoms become overwhelming and affect daily life. That was definitely the case for me. By the time I saw my rheumatologist, I was crying out for help, for anything to make it stop. Not only did I not want a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, I wanted a way to get my life back. Little did I know that would not be easy to do. I was crying out for help and struggling with chronic fibromyalgia autoimmune pain symptoms.
What I Learned About Chronic Pain
My doctors have been wonderful but they don’t have all the answers. There is no perfect pill that I have found in the last 19 years of suffering with fibromyalgia and autoimmune health issues. I have tried too many medications to count. Some made me sleep all day. Another made me sleep for days at a time. Some made me gain a lot of weight. I was willing to try most medications if it meant I might get my life back. I quickly learned the perfect pill did not exist. I also found out that some of the things my doctor would say were right on, even if I did not want to hear them. Exercise is important but telling that to someone writhing in constant pain is not ideal, even if true. Finally through a combination of supplements and medication, I was able to have some quality of life.
Fibromyalgia Chronic Pain and Old Age …
The older I get, the more issues I seem to have. Some just because I am getting older. My goal here is to help you avoid some of the hassle I dealt with in trying prescription after prescription and feeling like a human pin cushion. I found something that works and I have been using it for nearly ten years. It was not the perfect pill that fixed everything but it gave me my life back and I will take it.
So What Is It?
Well I can tell you it is not a prescription you will find at your local pharmacy. I am not opposed to medication prescribed by your doctor. Over trial and error, I learned that was not what helped the most. Years ago I was introduced to Healthy Chocolate as a way to lose weight. Always struggling with weight I decided to try it. Eventually this healthy chocolate company would come out with a healthy chocolate protein shake that was meant to help you lose weight. I tried it and over time my symptoms continued to improve. I am to the point that I won’t consider going anywhere or doing anything if I can’t get access to this protein shake.
What Happened when I skipped it?
I went a few months without it in the last year due to manufacturing issues due to covid and pandemic issues and I literally was back on a host of medications out of desperation because my pain and symptoms were so out of control. I was no longer able to ride my bike because of the severe bone pain I was experiencing and could barely get out of bed. I was contacting friends from as far as Ontario and Alaska to score this what I considered for me to be life saving protein shake. Although I knew this was helping me greatly, taking it away made it clear just how beneficial my morning chocolate protein shake had become.
Why Is This Different Than Other Products For Fibromyalgia?
That is actually a great question. I can’t even tell you how many things I tried in hopes it would help. Not everyone understands autoimmune issues and fibromyalgia. Some of us have even been misdiagnosed over the years so what works for one may not work for another. For those of us who have been struggling with chronic fibromyalgia autoimmune pain symptoms for any length of time, know that we are willing to try many things to get that help we need. Unfortunately not everything works for everyone. Except, good nutrition seems to matter. In fact, it seems to matter a lot. That is what this Beyond healthy chocolate protein shake has plenty of. Good Nutrition.
What Is In My Shake?
Lots of healthy chocolate! One piece of healthy chocolate is equal in antioxidants to over 1 pound of raw spinach but the shake has even more! One scoop of the Beyond Chocolate Protein has ORAC6 of 52,300 and 850 flavonoids. It is also a great source of protein. For me, it personally helped improve my bone health, reduced pain and gave me a quality of life I did not have before it. There are days I can barely get out of bed. I have my shake and I can function. If you are looking for an answer, don’t overlook good nutrition. Not just any protein powder or shake will do. It is the combination that seems to help so much. Over the years I have shared with many people suffering with fibromyalgia with results like mine. What do you have to lose. One bag of this shake will make 28 meals. Try it today. I won’t live without it!
A newer patented product called Protect is another product that is helping me along with the shake. Unlike traditional curcumin you find in stores, this patented curcumin version is for more difficult cases. This has me off most of my prescription pain medication except in a severe flare. I am shocked. Sharing so you can try for yourself. I did hear from the product formulator who recommended preloading with a few more Protect capsules for the fist two to three days if you are a difficult case. I believe all autoimmune, chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia sufferers are difficult cases. I took this for over a week before I noticed a major benefit and then boom! All of a sudden I noticed a definite improvement in my pain level. This is a curcumin based product I take twice a day. If I had to pick, I would still do the shake but together with these products, I am loving it!
