Fibromyalgia Doctor in NYC & Long Island
Holistic Treatment for Fibromyalgia
THERE ARE MORE THAN 3 MILLION FIBROMYALGIA CASES EVERY YEAR
Struggling with any type of chronic pain is difficult, because the causes
for pain are not always clear, so treatment may not be immediately effective.
With fibromyalgia, patients may experience even more frustration through
chronic pain, because this condition is often misdiagnosed and met with
ineffective treatment options.
Dr. Dean Mitchell at Mitchell Medical Group, you can find more comprehensive treatment for fibromyalgia that may offer
solutions where other physicians have failed to provide any sort of significant
pain relief. Our NYC practice is dedicated to a holistic approach for
chronic illness treatment, and we specialize in fibromyalgia care for
patients living with the widespread, severe pain this condition causes.
SYMPTOMS OF FIBROMYALGIA
Fibromyalgia has a number of symptoms, most notably aching all over. Other
- Chronic muscle pain and spasms
- Muscle soreness
- Sleep disorders or insomnia
- Digestive problems, including irritable bowel syndrome
- Tension headaches and migraines
- Facial tenderness
- Debilitating fatigue and brain fog (sometimes called fibro fog)
- Sensitivity to light, odors, noise, medications or certain foods
- Limited ability to exercise
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome frequently co-exists with fibromyalgia, and shares many of the same symptoms
Tender spots, body wide.
These spots are typically small, and noticeably more sensitive than the
surrounding tissue. However, many people with fibromyalgia have pain body-wide,
and no tender points
What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is an extremely painful condition that involves fatigue, and
muscle pain throughout the body. Approximately five million Americans,
mostly women, suffer from fibromyalgia, but some doctors still believe
it is simply a psychological disorder. This belief is dead wrong. We now
know that people with fibromyalgia experience an increased sensitivity
to pain—it seems there is some dysfunction in their pain processing
centers. We do not know what causes fibromyalgia, but it’s believed
to be a combination of genetics and environmental triggers, like stress,
trauma, major surgery, or infection.
There are many common misconceptions about fibromyalgia, as this condition
is not very well understood even within the medical community. There are
no clear causes for fibromyalgia, and many doctors actually attribute
the symptoms of fibromyalgia to psychological causes. In reality, fibromyalgia
is a complex physical condition that can cause a wide range of disruptive symptoms.
Why Is Fibromyalgia So Hard to Diagnose?
Fibromyalgia is a unique cause of chronic pain, because it often does not
show the inflammatory patterns of conditions like arthritis, and it has
no single test to achieve a diagnosis. Therefore, a long list of other
conditions must be ruled out before a diagnosis of fibromyalgia is confirmed.
Common misdiagnoses for fibromyalgia include depression, inflammatory
arthritis, and autoimmune disorders.
There are many different possible approaches to fibromyalgia treatment,
including the use of medication, lifestyle changes, and physical therapy.
At Mitchell Medical Group, we have seen the most success in fibromyalgia
treatment through immune rebalancing, which helps to reduce inflammation
and ease pain naturally. Some of the holistic therapies we utilize include
sublingual candida immunotherapy, T3 and T4 hormone replacement, magnesium
injections, and antioxidant therapy. Not only will these treatments aid
in the relief of fibromyalgia pain, but they can also help treat common
co-occurring disorders, such as hypothyroidism, which tends to produce
many overlapping symptoms.
WHY OUR TESTING IS DIFFERENT:
Our approach to treating Fibromyalgia is by immune rebalancing. Inflammation
of muscles or nerves is believed to be at the root of Fibromyalgia pain.
Our cutting edge treatments using Vitamins, Magnesium, and Gamma globulin
to reduce the inflammation can be the key to recovery.
OTHER TREATMENTS FOR FIBROMYALGIA MAY INCLUDE:
- Immune boosting therapy: Gamma Globulin injections
- Intravenous Vitamin and Mineral therapy
- Methylcobalamin (B12) specific for MTHFR deficient patients
- Antioxidant therapy: NADH & Glutathione
- Anti-inflammatory Magnesium injections
- Combination T4 and T3 hormone replacement
- Sublingual Candida immunotherapy

FIBROMYALGIA AND HYPOTHYROIDISM
A significant number of people with fibromyalgia also have hypothyroidism.
Some experts believe that like many instances of hypothyroidism, fibromyalgia
is an autoimmune disorder. Others believe that fibromyalgia is a form
of hypothyroidism. Whatever the reason, many patients with fibromyalgia
have untreated hypothyroidism, and the two disorders have overlapping
