Yes indeed. One of the most important things to do is to stop treating the individual as someone who is crazy and is not really feeling these terrible symptoms.
The first thing that needs to be done is determine why the symptoms are even there. If you have a clear understanding of the nervous system, the brain and how it all works you can clearly find areas that are not working well.
Once you find what is not working well you can attempt to fix it. Once it is fixed there is a good chance that the symptoms will decrease or go away. You see it is important not to get hung up on a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, because it doesn’t tell you what is wrong or how to help. What I find with treating Fibromyagia patients is that you have to think out of the box.
