Blood Test Could Lead to Early Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia – National Pain Report – National Pain Report

Blood Test Could Lead to Early Diagnosis of Fibromyalgia – National Pain Report – National Pain Report.

I learned at least a year ago that a blood test would soon be available from a reliable source. The following article is interesting. If the test is found to be reliable and  accurate many current patients may learn their situation was a misdiagnosis. This could be said also for those with RSD/CRPS when we start to undergo the same type testing.

I’m wondering how it will all play out in the end for the patients and the physicians.

Dr. Daniel Twogood, D.C., has been practicing chiropractic medicine in Southern California for 30 years. The doctor will describe 10 steps necessary to lower or eliminate chronic pain. This program does not work for everyone, but is noninvasive and we hope that attendees take away a few good pointers from it. This webinar not a cure, it is a tool to help people manage their chronic pain.

Dr. Twogood will discuss that chronic pain is caused by ongoing inflammation which is caused by specific substances in the diet, food additives & medication. He was also on the backtalk show Living with Hope, sponsored by the Power of Pain Foundation in May 2013.

Over 100 million Americans suffer with some form of chronic pain such as back pain, fibromyalgia, migraines and arthritis. His book is easy to read and lists the ten steps necessary to eliminate chronic conditions fibromyalgia, headaches, psoriasis, Crohn’s disease and more, based on this doctors findings over all the years he has been practicing medicine.

Where conventional medicine isn’t always effective, Dr. Daniel reports that relief is available by following these 10 steps outlined in his book. Most patients he works with recover well before 90 days.
