Fibromyalgia is a disease also called familial fibers.
The resentment generated by this disease is a conflict of double loyalty, where the person has suffered painful situations with the family with one or several members of it. She wants to go to this person but on the other hand this person is her executioner. I am in a double family commitment
Fibro: Family fibers, family ties, family relationships. It refers to the tendon and therefore speaks of a problem of performance in the present, that is, the individual is concerned about something that is happening to him at this moment.
Mine: It refers to the muscle. The way I have to submit to all those bad relationships. This is closely related to the notion of strength, of power on the positive side and the lack of strength, of impotence on the negative side.
Algia: The emotional pain caused by these situations, which is reflected in physical pain.
Fibromyalgia is considered a controversial diagnosis and some authors claim that it should not be considered as a disease due, among other reasons, to the lack of abnormalities in the physical examination, in objective laboratory tests or medical imaging studies to confirm the diagnosis.
Fibromyalgia is a group of symptoms and musculoskeletal disorders that are poorly understood, characterized mainly by extreme fatigue, persistent pain, stiffness of varying intensity of the muscles, tendons and a wide range of other psychological symptoms, such as difficulty sleeping, morning stiffness , headaches and problems with thinking and memory, sometimes called “mental gaps” that usually impede the routine functioning of people.
It is a “non-contagious” disorder present in approximately 3 to 6 percent of young women, commonly between 20 and 50 years of age. Those affected are excessively helpful people and need the dynamism of the family, which on the other hand usually blames their lack of attitude. It is a female disease, affecting 95% of women compared to 5% of men.
What are the symptoms of Fibromyalgia?
It is characterized mainly by extreme fatigue, persistent pain, stiffness of variable intensity of the muscles, tendons and a wide range of other psychological symptoms, such as sleep difficulties, morning stiffness, headaches and problems with thinking and memory, such as ” mental gaps “that usually prevent the routine functioning of people.
According to the SER (Spanish Society of Rheumatology), the most frequent clinical manifestations are:
Muscle pain: also known as myalgia, which appears chronically and can last for more than three months. This pain is diffuse, nonspecific and affects many different parts of the body. The pain in fibromyalgia has some peculiarities such as allodynia (pain due to non-painful stimuli), hyperalgesia (pain greater than normal in relation to the painful stimulus) and persistence (it is present for longer than normal).
Fatigue and fatigue: These two symptoms appear when you make little effort, or none, and do not always disappear when you get tired.
Rigidity: Although stiffness can appear as a symptom of other rheumatic diseases, as well as fatigue and fatigue, it has a series of peculiarities that differentiate it from other pathologies such as rheumatoid arthritis, arthritis, lupus. In these cases, patients They may have numbness, leg cramps, a feeling of swelling, stiffness, muscle contractures, involuntary movements, tremor, and a feeling of blockage.
Sleep disorders: People who have fibromyalgia may have problems falling asleep, waking up repeatedly during the night, or sleep being unpleasant.
Cognitive impairment: This disease can make it difficult for the patient to process information, memorize it or express it verbally in an appropriate way.
Anxiety and depression are often linked to the disease. However, specialists can not determine if they occur before, as a result of the disease or appears in the course of it.
Finally, there are many symptoms related to gastrointestinal disorders, such as irritable bowel or hiatus hernia, musculoskeletal disorders, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, metabolic (hypothyroidism) and autonomic (dizziness, dizziness, hypotension, etc.).
On the other hand, these symptoms can cause that often fibromyalgia is confused with polymyalgia rheumatica, a pathology characterized by pain with functional impotence and rigidity. However, unlike fibromyalgia, rheumatic polymyalgia is an inflammatory disease that produces alterations in blood tests and has diagnostic tests.
The direction I am taking in my life does not satisfy me.
“What am I doing here?” “I’m lost, out of the herd, then … when someone loses, it’s best to sit still.”
It affects the adrenal cortex, which stops producing cortisol to help me overcome the stress caused by the loss.
– Devaluation Conflict: I can not with this, it’s too much for me. If I move aside, I’m not well; If I move towards the other, I’m not well either, therefore, I do not move. ”
– Conflict of family contact imposed: I must take care of … be with … live with … have to assume, do or be with a particular person or situation.
– Fear of death: But not physical death, but the death of your own “identity” (feeling of not belonging to my real family or what I imagine it is, or feeling that the family does not do what I do I want).
In general, people with fibromyalgia are extremely helpful and responsible people.
The problem is that in their eagerness to serve others (family members), they get hurt. They are people who do favors although no one thanks them, who stop living their life to attend to the mother, the father to the brothers, grandparents, etc.
They are people who even if they clean, wash, buy, fix, anything in the house, they are despised, criticized, etc..
Resent: “The direction my life takes does not satisfy me” “My family ties me up” “It’s my responsibility, I have to take care of myself, if I do not do it, nobody will do it”.
The solution to this conflict is to achieve a possible agreement between these two contradictory poles and thus be able to find peace with himself.
Fibromyalgia can be easy to solve when one is decided to modify the limiting beliefs that give meaning to my actions regarding family ties.
