Fibromyalgia is associated with widespread pain, fatigue and stiffness.  It is a collection of problems that appear to occur together, however which have not been associated to date with any specific identifiable cause or problem.

Fibromyalgia is identified by widespread pain, aching, stiffness and fatigue which varies during the day and can get worse with activity.

Fibromyalgia can be accompanied by anxiety and depression.

There are numerous theories as to what causes Fibromyalgia with no clear indicator. Theories believe it can be caused though a single event or a combination of many emotional or physical stressors. Other theories relate the cause to traumatic experiences.

Studies have shown that fibromyalgia is far more common in women than men.

Research and Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

Research of 45 patients suffering from Fibromyalgia indicated

  • Symptoms – Deep Muscle Pain / Painful Tender Points
    • Research found that suffers of Pain were 93%
  • Symptoms of Fatigue – sleep problems
    • Research found that suffers of Fatigue were 93%
    • Research found that suffers of Fatigue upon exertion were 98%
  • Symptom of Anxiety – not included in research
  • Symptom of Fibro Fog –
    • Research found that suffers of Cognitive Impairment were 96%
  • Symptom of Tingling / sensations in hands / arms / feet and legs (Cycles of Fibromyalgia) – not included in research but could be covered by pain results
  • Symptoms of Impairment of daily living activities (ALDs)
    • Research found that suffers of Weakness were 98%
    • Research found that suffers of Impaired Balance were 80%
    • Research found that suffers of Clumsiness were71%
    • Research found that suffers of Numbness were 73%
    • Research found that suffers of Dizziness were 62%
    • Research found that suffers of Headache were 89%


Neurologist Anne Louise Oaklander[1] at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston USA indicated that fibromyalgia is associated with trauma or Stressful events

  • She indicated that the symptoms of Fibromyalgia are similar to both
    • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
    • Gulf War Syndrome

Oaklander published two studies showing that half or more of the cases of fibromyalgia are really a little-known condition affecting the nerves. People who suffer with this small-fiber neuropathy get faulty signals from tiny nerves all over the body, including internal organs, causing an odd constellation of symptoms from pain to sleep and digestive problems that overlap with symptoms of fibromyalgia.


Neuroscientist Frank Rice[2] president and chief scientist at Integrated Tissue Dynamics LLC, a biotechnology research company in Rensselaer, N.Y. and a team based at Albany Medical College  discovered that there are excessive nerve fibers lining the blood vessels of the skin of fibromyalgia patients — removing any doubt that the condition is physically real.

These fibers in the skin can sense blood flow and control the dilation and constriction of vessels to regulate body temperature, as well as directing nutrients to muscles during exercise. Women have more of these fibers than men, he says, perhaps explaining why they are much more likely to get fibromyalgia.

Rice  also indicated that scans of patients with fibromyalgia have revealed brain changes associated with pain, but the new research suggests these are a symptom rather than the cause of the condition.

Combo Therapy[3] research into the psychological effects of trauma on behaviour has come at the symptoms of fibromyalgia from a different perspective, the cycles of fibromyalgia identified by a new interview technique developed by combo therapy are very similar to those of cycles of anxiety.

In additions Combo Therapy’s preliminary research has found an association of the commencement of the symptoms of fibromyalgia with a traumatic event in the suffers life, while bearing in mind the principle “that it is not the event that counts but how one view it”.

Combo Therapy has developed a new technique to stop cycles of anxiety completely and this technique also works on the pain and muscle sensations associated with fibromyalgia.

Combo Therapy also addresses any trauma issues that the client may have experienced in their life without the client having to relive or provide details of the trauma to the therapist. Combo Therapy dissolves away the emotions and feelings associated with the traumatic memories leaving the client free to move on with their lives.

CASE STUDY – Female in her fifties, suffered from severe symptoms of Fibromyalgia for years. She could find no relief no matter what she tired. Following a number of sessions of Combo Therapy, she estimated that her condition was 50% healed following her treatments while her husband estimated her healing effects as being closer to 90%.

Upon checking with this lady 12 months later she had forgotten completely that she used to suffer from pains. They had been completely dissolved by Combo Therapy techniques. While her migraines were reduced, she still suffered from them.

Combo Therapy techniques identified in excess of 170 different cycles of pains associated with her Fibromyalgia. These pain cycles were dissolved away to the extent that she had even forgotten that she suffered from them.


GOOD NEWS – Combo Therapy’s Research into the treatment of Fibromyalgia has achieved excellent results. Let Combo Therapy provide you with healing and relief that you have being waiting for so long.
