How common is Fibromyalgia? Who gets Fibromyalgia?
According to reported cases in the USA, approximately 1 in every 73 American adults suffers from fibromyalgia. The American College of Rheumatology says that between 3 and 6 million Americans have fibromyalgia.
The NIH (National Institutes of Health, USA) says 90% of fibromyalgia patients are women. Men and children may also be affected. Although symptoms may become present at any time during a person's life, they are most commonly reported when the patient is middle-aged.
People who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus), or spinal arthritis (ankylosing spondylitis) have a higher risk of developing fibromyalgia, as well as patients with some other rheumatic diseases.
What is the Solution? Dr. Brown's Approach
Many people are given the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and sent on their way with few answers and even fewer solutions. There is one major thing many doctor's fail to do...check the hormone levels. Many of those diagnosed with Fibromyalgia have low testosterone levels and have never been adequately checked.
