Fibromyalgia Mistake #6. Doing Nothing And Thinking It Will Not Get Worse
A common myth, perpetuated by many sources, is that fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue does not get worse…that you have nothing to worry about. This is just not true. Studies have shown that fibromyalgia patients have greater than normal grey matter loss in the brain,(brain degeneration) and this loss of brain material gets worse the longer you have been diagnosed. The same is true for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
This ties into the brain and neurological piece of this puzzle, which is only one piece of the puzzle. This is why we also incorporate Brain Based Therapy into our Fibromyalgia Recovery Program. Learn more about Brain Based Therapy and How it Helps Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome suffers here.
If you sit around and wait for this to just go away on its own, or you just think you can do nothing and it will be okay…you are falling into a trap. Avoid it at all costs. The Functional abnormalities are only getting worse, and you are making your recovery harder.
