I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 1995. The doctor felt that I had it long before that time, but a car accident in May of 1995 made the pain and symptoms more severe and almost to the point of unbearable to move or motivate. I was placed on strong pain meds, including but not limited to Ultram, Vioxx and Celebrex. These brought on liver dysfunction. I was then given Mononitrate for the high blood pressure, possibly caused by the pain meds. I was also put on Amitriptyline to help me sleep and relax. Next came Paxil, to help with the depression brought on by being so limited in what I could do physically since the car accident. I was put on Mononitrate because of the anxiety attacks I believe I was getting from all the meds above.
I received my first Infratonic QGM in 1997. I began 3 daily treatments; first on bottoms of both feet for improved circulation in my legs, my worst area of pain. I placed it on my right upper pelvis where tissue was torn from bone from the car accident. I then did behind my legs, my abdomen, below and to left and right of belly button. Then I go to my center chest and each side of temple and the top center of my head. It took about one and one half hours to do all these areas, sometimes longer on my tough pain days. As of November 2001, I take no prescribed meds. NONE, 0! I feel doctors are too ready to prescribe meds for every ache and pain and don’t get down to the cause of the problem. I still do daily treatments, but only twice daily.
