Fibromyalgia

What is Fibromyalgia and what are the symptoms?

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder with widespread musculoskeletal pain for the entire body that waxes and wanes over time.  Additional common symptoms may include depression,   anxiety, migraines, tension headaches, pelvic pain, irritable or overactive bladder, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), TMJ, and gastrointestinal reflux disease (GERD).    Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress.  Sometimes, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no triggering event. Fibromyalgia is diagnosed based on a combination of relevant symptoms, or how the person feels, including fatigue, tenderness, functionality, and overall well-being.  It is generally accepted that there is no cure for fibromyalgia. However, at Bergen Pain & Rehab, we have treated fibromyalgia successfully especially for patients whose symptoms began with physical trauma.

How can A-IMS® help with Fibromyalgia?

We treat fibromyalgia differently. We do not use medications to mask symptoms. Rather, we treat symptoms one by one by relaxing the tight muscles that give rise to the observed symptoms with A-IMS® procedure. This method has been successful in treating many fibromyalgia patients as you can read from the following patient testimonials.  Typically, fibromyalgia patients have myriads of symptoms. By eliminating symptoms one by one, the patient can become pain free and fully functional to carry on daily living.

If you’re ready to try a new treatment option for fibromyalgia, schedule an appointment with Dr. Lee today. She has the skill and experience to assist you on your journey to a happier and healthier life.

 

 

Fibromyalgia Testimonials

Carol Johnson

“After my car accident, I had a closed head injury, severe headaches, pain in my neck, arm, lower back, and leg.” “I was in such horrific pain, I felt incredible when I got relief [from Dr. Lee’s treatment].  I don’t know what I would have done without Dr. Lee’s treatment as a mother of two children.  I would have possibly lost my mind without the treatment.” “I can never repay her for all she’s done for me.  I feel like she saved my life.”, “A-IMS became so beneficial for me that I didn’t need to take medication.”

 

Michelle Hale

“I have injured in a car accident in 1998.  I had pain in my whole body from head to toe.  Some days my pain would be so bad that I would get up, send my kids to school, take my pain medication, and would get into bed under the electric blanket, and that’s where I’d spend my whole day. I was willing to do anything to get relief from the pain.” “The treatment Dr. Lee gave me have given me my life back. I was able to get a job after she had started to treat me.”  “This is the only treatment I’ve been through that worked for me.”

 

Ulysees Cook

"In 2003, I was in a car accident in which I thought I was alright. A couple of days later, I started having pain in my neck, shoulder, lower back, and right leg. I also had pain in my right arm and right hand. My right hand was swollen and would go numb. "[The A-IMS] treatment... made me 100% better. It made me use my arm a lot better. My relief with the treatment was immediate and started to last longer with each treatment" "Dr. Lee and her staff are very good at what they do. They make you feel at home. They are very professional and well trained." "Dr. Lee's  A-IMS treatments were very effective for me. I would recommend Dr. Lee to anyone who is having or experiencing any type of pain."

 

John Hudson

"On December 17, 2001, I had a serious auto accident.  [The accident] resulted in: facial numbness, migraine headaches, severe neck, back and lower spine pain with two bulging discs and a sprained back, damaged nerves, damage to right ankle, torn cartilage in left knee, numbness in groin area (resulting in impotence), damaged left elbow with numbness in left shoulder, hands and forearm.  The depression caused by the pain has set back my new business endeavor and interrupted the writing of my biography." "At first, I was skeptical of this [A-IMS] treatment; however, I would do anything to eliminate the pain and suffering caused by this accident." "Systematically, [Dr. Lee and her staff] eliminated first the migraine headaches, the numbness of the face, and most of the pain in the back and neck." "It was astounding what this [A-IMS] procedure has done to eliminate the pain I have been enduring for the past ten months." "I can only say I have a great deal of love and appreciation for Dr. Lee."
