Help with debilitating symptoms

by Brian Seifert
(Cleveland, Ohio, USA)

I been suffering with a large amount of debilitating symptoms and have suspected Fibromyalgia as the cause. I have gone from doctor to doctor looking for help and have not received any relief. The symptoms came on almost overnight with pins and needle pain radiating down my left arm, wide spread muscle spasms, leg cramps, constant light headiness, light sensitivity, tinnitus and neck pain. Can a vitamin deficiency be the cause of all these wide spread symptoms? What tests/course of action would you recommend?

Fibromyalgia isn't a cause, but a symptom
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Brian,

Your suspicions are wrong. Fibromyalgia cannot be the cause of your problems because fibromyalgia is a symptom and not the cause of problems. If you have fibromyalgia, there is a cause. If fibromyalgia was a cause of problems, then you'd have to say that fibromyalgia is the cause of fibromyalgia and that makes no sense.

And while I can't say that your symptoms ARE due to nutritional deficiencies, they certainly COULD be. Please see my pages on:

Fibromyalgia Cause

and particularly my page on

Signs of Magnesium Deficiency of which it sounds like you have many of.

That's a start. Read some of the pages that lead off from the Fibromyalgia cause page and get started on what seems the most likely to you. If you have any questions once you start putting some of them into practice, feel free to ask any questions that you might have or get any clarifications that you might need.
