Q.        Is fibromyalgia hereditary?

A.        In my experience, fibromyalgia is not hereditary, it is a learned behavior.  The reason it appears to “run in the family” is because family members tend to share the same or similar dietary habits, outlook on life, and lifestyle.

Symptoms of fibromyalgia include chronic widespread pain in the joints, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues, accompanied by sleep disturbances, headaches, chronic fatigue, mind fog, depression and anxiety.  In some severe cases, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and irritable bowel syndrome are also present.

Currently there are no diagnostic tests, such as x-rays or blood tests, to detect fibromyalgia.  The diagnosis of fibromyalgia is based on self reports.  Fibromyalgia affects people of all ages in both females and males, but is most common among women aged 20 to 50.

Based on my more than three decades of clinical experience working with clients with fibromyalgia, I have found that causes of fibromyalgia include yeast and parasitic infections, poor dietary habits, lack of exercise (including sexercise), perception of being un-loved, emotional and/or physical trauma, and stress.

I will discuss how to overcome symptoms of fibromyalgia in the next article, please stay tuned.
