Are you suffering needlessly? What can be done?
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is widespread muscle and skeletal pain.
Widespread is defined as pain occurring on the right and left sides of the body, above and below the waist, and along the spine. Localized pain also must occur in a majority of identified “tender points” all over the surface of the body.
Do I have Fibromyalgia?
A patient must have several symptoms present so that the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia can be confirmed.
Many patients have the symptoms but may not even know what Fibromyalgia is. Others have been told by their MD that they “are on their way to having Fibromyalgia soon if nothing is done.”
Fibromyalgia Trigger Points
Trigger points are areas of tenderness in a muscle.
Trigger points may be associated with myofascial pain syndromes of Fibromyalgia. If you suffer with 11 of the 18 points shown above, you may be suffering with Fibromyalgia. Please discuss these points while consulting your FCA doctor.

"I can actually walk across parking lots without the aid of my cane. I'm not having as much mental confusion and I find myself making plans to go places and do things because I have more energy."
"Dr. Shapiro validated my pain and was tremendously caring. I'm also off pain pills, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory drugs. I have added benefits of better sleep, lots more energy, and a happy mommy!"
“I have felt better with the aching and I have more stamina to do things I haven’t done in a long time.”
- Margaret Hester
“I am walking three miles, three times a week. I have a lot more energy and I have gone back to work. I am not having muscle spasms or taking pain pill anymore.”
