Blurb Verse

"And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us."
Romans 5:3-5

Cognitive Dysfunction & Fibromaylgia

Do you struggle with fibromyalgia and have a bad memory? Do you find it difficult sometimes to be able to get a whole thought out before it disappears? It could be linked to your fibromyalgia.

New research suggests that fibromyalgia patients perform more poorly than the counterparts of their age, in three areas:

1. Free recall: remembering words
2. Working Memory: everyday info
3. Vocabulary tests - accessing words from memory

Research also suggests that blood pressure, anxiety and depression have no effect on fibromyalgia patient's cognitive abilities.

Sad news: There is currently nothing available to help improve this.

However, there is some hope: Here's some tips that may help us as we battle our own cognition:

1. Establish regular routines: Eat and sleep at the same time regularly.
2. Snack every three hours, rather than eating full meals.
3. Use reminders and to-do-lists.
4. Take breaks when you find your concentration waning.
5. Avoid multitasking, as it reduces your effectiveness.
6. Pace, pace, pace.
7. Avoid loud noises, bright lights and other distractions in your environment, particularly where you sleep.

Do you have any strategies that work for you?

  1. Hey,

    There is some exciting research on PubMed relating to FM and mineral deficiency. In my practice as a holistic nurse, there is often skepticism until people are desperate. Then they come to me.

    Usually the response is how come my doc never told me about this. As my last arthritis patient said, she has not had to go back as she no longer has pain. Thus the answer why they do not tell people about what I teach.

    I digress. The mental fog or lack of mental clarity can be easily fixed for most. It is often what nurses would call fluid and electrolyte imbalance: less than bodies needs. We need both water and electrolytes to have proper brain function.

    Thus, here are several studies showing either the lack of minerals and the association with FM or providing minerals and the relief of FM symptoms. Several of the studies are here.... http://www.watercures.org/fibromyalgia-mineral-deficiency.html

    We have long known that the water cures protocol works for FM. It is just hard to get people to try it. Once they do, it usually works. Now there is scientific proof.

    To work, it has to be unprocessed sea salt so that the various minerals are present.

    The protocol is here...http://www.watercures.org/water-cure.html and it is free for the trying. The founder of the site is telling the world about it so those who cannot afford health care can get some relief.

  5. Fibromyalgia is a sad and hard disease that can affect people memories and relationships with others, such as family, friends, coworkers, or any other person around them, life decisions, and the current way of living.The tips you mention in your blog are very good. I did a small research on fibromylagia and it seems to agee with you. People need to start getting enough sleep, reduce stress in their daily lives, exercise, not multitask, make a treatment plan with their doctor, take their everyday medications, make a new healthy lifestyle, and maintain a good relationship with their love ones (Staff, Mayo Clinic). Moreover, physical therapy, therapeutic massage, light aerobics, heat or cold pads, water therapy, yoga, relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, osteopathic or chiropractic manipulation, and many other practices can help fibromyalgia’s patients to get better with the passage of time and keep their memory working well.

  6. Wow, I have definitely experience these cognitive symptoms. However...as a middle school teacher, most of those tips are nearly impossible to follow. I can't stop to eat a snack in the middle of class. I can't take a break when there are 25 thirteen year old students in the room. Avoid multitasking?? Multitasking effectively is the essence of being a good teacher! Pace, pace, pace...40 minutes of class, 3 minutes to pick up the room and maybe dash to the bathroom, then 40 minutes of class again, repeat all day. And avoid loud noises and bright nights?? I don't turn on all the lights in the room, and on sunny days, I don't have them on at all. As far as loud noises -- I'll just tell my administrator that I can't do hallway monitoring anymore. I'm sure he'll understand (...not likely...)

  11. As a sign of gratitude for how my son was saved from fibromyalgia , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My son suffered fibromyalgia in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he always complain of joint stiffness, and he always have difficulty falling asleep . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to fibromyalgia . I never imagined fibromyalgia has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my son will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my son used it and in one months time he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. fibromyalgia has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story

  15. "DR WILLIAMS, I wish to praise you for sharing such a simple but comprehensive herbal medication to tackle this pain from the root. This is truly a valuable resource for all men and woman suffering from fibromyalgia. It's been almost 10 months since my doctor first diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. My doctor suggested that I will try watchful waiting but as the months went nothing has changed.

    As soon as I decided I'm going all the way and treat my fibromyalgia, I ordered Dr Williams and the results as you already know were shocking to say the least. The result I took clearly showed my fibromyalgia had completely vanished.

    I have even encouraged my "Doubting Thomas" friend to order it and read it too. To have so much good information in one tight package is an unbelievable value. I would encourage anyone who suffers from fibromyalgia and/or any joint stiffness issue to take advantage of Dr Williams herbal medicine! you can contact him through his email on drwilliams098675@gmail.com for more information

    Sincerely...

  16. Dr Williams,his medicine was extremely helpful to my daughter. I have had a daughter with fibromyalgia for 21 years now , and my doctor have prescribe me with different kinds of western drugs without no improvement in my daughter symptoms . I am so glad I have found Dr Williams medicine (as I was surfing the net for a solution and saw a recommendation for it on a women's health forum early this year). I have felt so empowered by the knowledge you have given me and I quickly self diagnosed the individual cause of my daughter fibromyalgia and armed with his clear instructions, I was finally able to beat this monster, in less than 4 weeks of using dr Williams medication on my daughter. she went for a checkup and it was clear that my daughter fibromyalgia were gone,you can also email him on drwilliams098675@gmail.com for help.

    Thank you, thank you , thank you. Dr Williams "

  17. CURE TO FIBROMYALGIA WITHOUT ANY SIDE EFFECT: My husband was diagnosed with fibromyalgia . My husbad fibromyalgia was something i don't understand he cry so bad that he was usually in bed for about 8 hours and soreness killers (even prescription strength) don't stop the weakness of the joint, even if he take triple the dosage. my husband symptoms was really so terrible,that we have to make hospital our home, and all the doctors would do is monitor it, prescribe him countless of control pills and pain medication with no positive result. until recently I contacted a Doctor who put an end to this problem. If you are having same problem with fibromyalgia contact Dr. William for advice and possible solution without any side effect (drwilliams098675@gmail.com
