Adrenal Dysfunction is listed as a possible cause of Fibromyalgia on the Environmental Illness Resource website in an article by Dr. Rodger Murphree. The adrenal glands tell the body when to release hormones that help us cope with stress. If your adrenals are not working properly, your body is unable to cope with stress and this could trigger a Fibromyalgia flare.1
Special adrenal support supplements are available to help you restore proper adrenal function to your body. I’ve started taking one and it has made a world of difference. After starting the adrenal supplement, I’ve managed to work three full weeks without having to take a sick day due to a flare-up! It isn’t enough just to take the supplement though, you also need to learn how to better cope with stress. I’m currently reading a few books about coping with stress and I’ve also made an appointment for counseling. Maybe I can learn how to say no to people.
For more information read Dr. Rodger Murphree’s book, Treating and Beating Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Dr. Murphree recommends various supplements and sells them on his website. You should consult with your doctor before using any supplements. The adrenal support that I am on is formulated by my doctor and sold at his office. I have not tried any of Dr. Murphee’s supplements, and therefore do not endorse them.
