Do you suffer from chronic pain?
Does the pain seem to have a life of its own?
Does the pain move seemingly randomly?
Are you plagued by severe fatigue?
Are you afflicted with recurring headaches or migraines?
Do you experience numbness or tingling in your arms and/or legs?
Are you tortured with feelings of tenderness and/or swelling?
This is what it’s like to suffer from Fibromyalgia. It’s symptoms make everyday life incredibly difficult and mundane, daily tasks nearly impossible. And more often than not, these symptoms are only made worse because so many practitioners find it difficult to understand and even more troublesome to treat. It is characterized by widespread pain in muscles, and tissues rather than inflammation of the joints, muscles and tissues.
Symptoms are masked with over-the-counter medications. Prescription pills only provide temporary relief and more often than not, fail to work at all. And the worst case scenario, you’re completely disrespected or dismissed by medical professionals who don’t understand Fibromyalgia or don’t care.
The struggle with fibromyalgia is that everyday it manifests new symptoms. Everyday is a constant battle, full of dangers, no idea what you will encounter next. There are over a hundred symptoms, including:
Chronic pain, muscle spasms, or tightness
Severe fatigue, decreased energy
Stiffness when waking up, or when staying in one position for a long period of time
Difficulty concentrating and remembering, what they call ‘Fibro Fog’
Bloating, nausea, constipation, and abdominal pain
Migraine or tension headaches
Anxiety and depression
Sensitivity to odors, noise foods, cold, lights, or certain medications
Numbness or tingling in the feet, legs, arms, hands and face
Sensation of swelling in hands and feet
Allodynia (a heightened sensitivity to touch that results in pain from things that wouldn’t normally cause discomfort, like wearing clothes or brushing your hair)
And the list keeps going…
According to Dr. Danial Clauw of the American Pain Society “fibromyalgia pain comes more from the brain and spinal cord than from areas of the body in which someone may experience peripheral pain. The condition is believed to be associated with disturbances in how the brain processes pain and other sensory information.”
Fibromyalgia is a central nervous system disorder. One in which all the nerves of the body carry pain signals to the brain almost incessantly. As a result the brian is bombarded and overwhelmed and the neuropathways that are supposed to release chemicals to decrease the feeling of pain can no longer keep up.
Some medical professionals will suggest dietary changes or encourage you to exercise. Perhaps they instruct you to ‘drink more water’ as if more water is going to stop you from feeling as though you’ve been hit by a freight train everyday.
At AIM you no longer have to suffer.
At AIM there is a Doctor that has a proven solution for fibromyalgia pain.
Dr. Tonya Weber, DAc, LAc is a renowned authority figure in the field of acupuncture, especially when it comes to chronic and seemingly hopeless cases. With 18 years of clinical experience, specialized training in geriatrics and chronic conditions and over 115,000 patient treatments performed, Dr. Weber brings a missing link of healthcare to the Myrtle Beach area. Her focus has been on treating chronic pain, failed surgeries, and of course, rheumatoid conditions like Fibromyalgia.
“It sparks great joy to be able to help people live life to their fullest and without debilitating, chronic pain.”
Dr. Weber uses non invasive, non pharmaceutical, integrative therapies to relieve her patients of Fibromyalgia symptoms, one of which is Acupuncture. Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine and uses fine needles to stimulate certain areas of the body. It is commonly used by people to reduce various forms of pain and works by reducing inflammation, stimulating the release of endorphins and will offer much needed effective symptom relief for Fibromyalgia. She also skillfully layers in other non invasive therapies such as ATP Resonance BioTherapyTM and non pharmaceutical, non opioid, non steroid, natural injection therapies for amplified and lasting results.
Because of Dr. Weber’s tremendous success in treating Fibromyalgia patients, she also lectures, teaches and trains other doctors across the US and internationally in the patient management of difficult to treat cases. AIM serves as a training facility for doctors from all over the world.
