Fibromyalgia in Your Brain

The wealth of experimental evidence showing that FM patients are hypersensitive to painful stimuli, as well as unpleasant stimuli from other sensory modalities, in conjunction with functional brain imaging data showing increased stimulus-evoked activation throughout nociceptive pathways, shows that the defining symptom of FM—increased pain—is in fact real and not just a response bias of the patients. The finding that perception is increased in multiple modalities speaks against the hypothesis that FM pain is due to an upregulation of peripheral nociceptive processes. Further, psychophysical evidence that descending modulatory systems are altered in FM patients supports the opposing idea that FM symptoms are at least in part caused by alterations in CNS processing of the pain signal, including a dysregulation of pain modulatory systems. Nevertheless, the apparent dysregulation within these systems could be caused and/or perpetuated by a tonic activation related to the presence of ongoing widespread pain, so that the systems are saturated and cannot regulate further in response to external stimuli.

Fibromyalgia in Your Brain

As a person who has lived with this diagnosis for many years I’ve experienced what it feels like all the symptoms of fibromyalgia and just when I believe it is cured (although my normal days are never pain free days and I know there is no cure for it) I come to the realization that it was simply under control. That fibromyalgia indeed is part of my life and although it does not identify me it is a diagnosis that I have. As an individual who is constantly looking for the best possible ways to stay healthy, mentally, & spiritually in order to live my best I cannot sleep on this chronic pain condition. If like me you siffer of fibromyalgia or any other chronic pain condition please know that you will have up and down, and when I say you can sleep on it I mean you must use your energy suply wisely, be patience with yourself when you don’t feel so great but most importantly don’t abuse of your good days.

I must not rely on the days I feel by best to or use them as some sort of fat deposit storage as when a person goes into starvation.

If I want to help others live their best life, I must start with myself. What may appear as a “simple flare” will creep up and attack LITERALLY from the inside out in a matter of seconds.

Your emotional, spiritual and mental well being is of utmost importance when it comes with dealing with (ANY) Fibromyalgia #fibromyalgiaisreal

Much Love!

You Coach,

Along the path of my life I have focused on growing as an individual, studying the word of God, and expanding my view of life to help others. After studying and obtaining a degree in Psychology Christian Counseling, Crisis Counseling and Life Coaching at Liberty University I obtained a diploma in Life Coaching out of the missteps of life. I became certified as an Advanced Mental Health & Christian Life Coach through the American Association of Christian Life Counselors (AACC). Obtaining my international credentialing through the National and International Board of Christian Life Coaches (IBCLC) & the International Board of Christian Care (IBCC). As a fibromyalgia fighter, panic attacks, depression, anxiety, childhood trauma, and sexual molestation over-comer I consider myself a victorious woman, who has been born for a time as this. My mission is to inspire with my testimony, empower with the word of God and encourage by instilling positive change, to equip others with life lasting tools. My vision is to help others live to their full God given potential. My objective it to share my life vision with those who are blind-folded by pain or circumstance and have lost hope, & become stuck in a rut but long for a change. I am a mother of three blessings I get to call children; two boys and a girl, wife of a man from whom I've learn to build character everyday of our journey together. I live in the blessing of knowing that I am a daughter of God Almighty. My advise to you, with the best love I have, “Don't stop learning, becoming, and believing in yourself-there’s a world that needs your help” Denise Kilby
