Fibromyalgia is a disconcerting and largely misunderstood disorder characterized by widespread pain and tenderness, accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory problems, and gastrointestinal problems. Because the range of possible symptoms is so extensive (and there remains no clear consensus on how to diagnose the disorder), many feel lost about what is affecting them and what needs to be done about them.
The most important thing to note is that fibromyalgia may be misunderstood, but it is very true. By becoming more aware of the signs and symptoms of the disorder, you can help your doctor identify fibromyalgia and access treatment that can greatly improve your quality of life.
Feeling of fullness in the ear
If you have fibromyalgia, you know that the list of symptoms is hundreds of long things, and that many sufferers have a large number of symptoms. Ear pain is a common symptom of fibromyalgia. There may be pain in or around the ear. Patients often complain about a feeling of fullness in the ear. The ear can also have pain or a ringing experience.
What is the cause of fibromyalgia in the ear, and how can it be treated naturally without prescription medication? My ears are crackling, they feel like they’re immersed in water, they feel full, they ‘re fluttering, and I have other odd sensations that come and go. My hearing is not good, particularly on a few days.
What’s going to be done? So little is known about fibromyalgia that any symptom, while experienced by those of us with this disease, is not properly diagnosed by specialists, I seek to heat the pads to my stiff back, meditation, exercise, but without a successful end. My chiropractor does give me some relief, but it’s brief.
Ear problem springs from the central nervous system
While the connection has not been determined for certain, the only thing that is becoming clear is that the ear pain experienced by patients with fibromyalgia is not caused by the problem in the ear itself. A study just last year found that the problem stems from the central nervous system.
But just because the problem is in the nervous system and not in the ear, it doesn’t mean that the pain isn’t genuine. Unfortunately, many medical professionals are only going to prescribe something for the pain rather than looking for the root cause of the problem.
Ear Problems Common in Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia is often associated with symptoms related to the ear, such as a feeling of fullness of the ear, earache, and tinnitus (ringing in the ear). We have seen improvements in ear problems for those who suffer from fibromyalgia and those who do not.
Recent work in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology has tried to establish whether fibromyalgia and ear problems are related. While fibromyalgia is often associated with ear-related symptoms such as a feeling of fullness of the ear, earache, and tinnitus, the pathogenesis of these ear-related symptoms in fibromyalgia patients is unknown.
Here, we focused on clarifying the pathogenesis of fullness of the ear, a particularly common symptom seen in patients with fibromyalgia. Twenty patients diagnosed with fibromyalgia on outpatient psychosomatic therapy complaining about ear-related symptoms answered our questionnaire and underwent neurotological examination, including pure tone audiometry and Eustachian tube function tests.
Although the symptoms associated with the ear were significantly exacerbated following the onset of fibromyalgia, there was no correlation between the presence or absence of an ear fullness sensation and abnormal neurotological findings. Based on our findings, we suspect that the onset of fullness of the ear may be associated not with abnormal results in middle and inner ear function tests, but with other causes, such as central desensitization.
Medication Side Effects
It is important to note that tinnitus can be a side effect of antidepressant therapy as well as a side effect of major depression. In view of the fact that many patients with fibromyalgia suffer from comorbid depression and, as a result, receive antidepressant therapy, it may be difficult to determine the cause of tinnitus in patients with depressed fibromyalgia.
Adding to the confusion is the fact that dizziness is also a common side effect of many prescription drugs , especially antidepressants.
Close monitoring is necessary
As a result, it is very important for patients with fibromyalgia who have tinnitus and/or dizziness to closely monitor and monitor their treatments. Diligent symptoms such as these, along with medication monitoring and other treatment efforts, can help to narrow down and identify the cause of new or worsening symptoms. This could accelerate improvements in care that can lead to quicker symptomatic relief for the patient.
Misalignment of the Upper Neck and Fibromyalgia
The misalignment of the upper neck is a common underlying cause of pain. When C1 and C2 vertebrae are misaligned, the results can be any number of symptoms, including ear pain and many other symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Why is that the case? These two upper neck vertebrae are located at the base of the brain stem. As a consequence, any misalignment can cause neurological complications that may not be seen as pain in the neck or spine, but as many and varied symptoms. Because of this, upper cervical chiropractic is a logical approach to ear pain in fibromyalgia. It attacks the symptoms at their source rather than just treating the pain.
Injury to the upper cervical spine
Studies have linked upper cervical chiropractic to relieve symptoms of both fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. Injury to the upper cervical spine may cause many of the symptoms linked to both conditions and may take years to make the diagnosis of initial injury more difficult.
By using upper cervical chiropractic as a natural , non-drug-free treatment for fibromyalgia ear pain, you may find that ear pain is not the only thing that improves dramatically in your health.
