43 Signs of Fibromyalgia You Should Be Aware Of

Fibromyalgia is a difficult and painful condition which affects more than 40 million Americans annually. It manifests through pain all over the body, and is quite often misdiagnosed as it’s hard to detect it.

This is why it’s very important to recognize the early signs of the condition in order to start with the treatment as soon as possible and prevent severe pain.

Since there’s no cure for fibromyalgia, you can manage it with the help of light exercises, medications and cognitive behavioral therapy.

The muscle pain and tenderness can become a real problem after a while, and even painkillers won’t work. The condition doesn’t have an effect on the physical system only – it can also destroy your mental health.

Deficiency of one nutrient can impact your health. Health problems are increasing rapidly. The American diet has changed significantly. Due to this, chronic nutrient deficiencies are also increasing. Poor health has become common now.

Why is it difficult to obtain sufficient magnesium?

It was once easy to get your daily dose of magnesium. Eating what you grew would provide magnesium since soil has a lot of magnesium. But modern farming has destroyed the magnesium present in soil.
