Doctors, I know you said "a couple of sentences, but that was too hard! I hope you are not looking for extreme profoundness; you will need to get someone else for that one...
A note from a skeptic to a believer!
Nine weeks ago I went in to see a doctor because I was at my lowest time in terms of feeling extreme fatigue and back pain. I was at a very low point in my life because I was tired of being tired and tired of the pain. However, I must admit I was skeptical because I have tried many things to help me with my fibromyalgia in the last 10 years and nothing ever really helped. But, I decided to give it a try; I had nothing else to lose. After two treatments, I began to feel improvement with my back pain..."Hmmm"...I thought, "That’s strange"...After 5 treatments I began to feel like I was getting my life back! I have gone through 9 treatments and I cannot explain in words how wonderful I feel. I am medication free, I was on sleeping medication (strong stuff) for 10 years, and I sleep like a baby now, naturally. I am doing things with my 11-year-old daughter that I could never do before, rollerblading, bike riding, and even parasailing! I am feeling so good that I even registered to walk 60 miles on the AVON Breast cancer walk! If that doesn't tell you something, I don't know what will. Give this treatment a try, just think of all the things you will have energy for!
Hi, my name is Sheila Bearden. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in October 1999. I have had this awful illness for at least 6 yrs. I have been to so many doctors and have taken so many prescriptions that I was just exhausted with even telling one more person about me and my thing. My boss handed me a clipping from a neighborhood bulletin board. I almost screamed, "not another support group". I had tired of all those very quickly. I was in such severe pain that for weeks at a time, I couldn't get out of bed. If I was able to get out, I didn't have the energy. I took the clipping and called the number on the piece of paper. It was to the ProCare Medical Group, Fibromyalgia Clinic (Currently Pain relief Clinic, MD). I went and the doctors there not only cared about me and my pain, they showed me a treatment that they said would bring instant relief. WOW. They were right, I have been going for 6 weeks and actually noticed no pain after only 2 treatments; I am off all medications and am actually considering snow skiing in a few weeks. I have not been able to have any kind of outside recreation for years. I am finishing my treatment and understand that this is not a cure, but I would recommend this treatment to anyone suffering with this horrible illness that is "not in your head".
I suffered from the chronic illness fibromyalgia for almost 10 years. I was in a very mild car accident that triggered this condition when I was only a senior in high school. During my college years I began to form many of the chronic conditions that accompany fibromyalgia such as chronic fatigue, chronic widespread muscle pain, sleep difficulties, dysmenorrhea, irritable bladder. I then moved to Atlanta for graduate school and developed even more symptoms: esophageal reflux, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, irritable bowel syndrome, and multiple food allergies. It took me 7 years to even get a diagnosis because no doctor ever put the pieces of the puzzle together. I was left feeling like a hypochriandriac (even though I have been a clinical psychology doctoral graduate student and knew that I wasn't!). I tried almost everything the medical field had to offer and other alternative medicine modalities. I took multiple medications, tried physical therapy, massage therapy, osteopathic manipulations, herbal supplements, chiropractic adjustments, yoga, reiki, psychotherapy, food allergy diets, and god only knows what else. None of these provided any long-term relief. Throughout all of this, I have managed to graduate from undergraduate school, complete a master's degree in a clinical psychology, and am currently working on my doctorate in clinical psychology. I will soon be beginning my clinical research project on fibromyalgia. Just recently, I found these 2 compassionate, caring and brilliant medical doctors in Georgia that cured my fibromyalgia! I no longer have any of the debilitating symptoms that have plagued me for the past 10 years. Let me say that again, I no longer have ANY of the fibromyalgia symptoms that I have had over the past 10 years! They literally gave me my life back! Currently, they have treated over 400 patients successfully. They have done a medical study for 2 years and are submitting their study to a medical journal any day now. They have an 80% success rate of curing patients with fibromyalgia. Their treatment modality is called electroceutical medicine systems that is administered an average of 12 times over 6 weeks. The treatment is very relaxing. I took a nap every time I got a treatment! I only needed 7 treatments due to my young age. I truly wish the best for these doctors and believe that they need to be recognized for the wonderful work they have done for a condition that was once hopeless for me and still is to so many others out there! I would love to tell my story and bring along these doctors to give them the recognition that they deserve! Let me know what you think!
I am writing to let the world know that God has truly not only blessed my life, but has given me a miracle! For eight years I battled with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and osteoarthritis. The fibromyalgia was at its worst two years ago when I became completely bedridden, walking only a few steps at a time for bathroom trips and with two canes. I was going to an Atlanta pain clinic every other week, a Rheumatologist every four weeks, blood work every three months, was on nine medications, including 140 mgs. of oxycontin for pain. It was at that point I was granted a miracle and God brought me to this office. I had tried every other possible therapy and means of healing available. Because of this, I was very skeptical to try anymore, but after speaking with the doctors at the clinic, I felt I had nothing to lose. In only three visits, there was a dramatic
Change in pain! Now four months later after the total of twelve visits, I am still pain free, and am proud and elated to say I am totally off oxycontin and most of my other medications!
I no longer go to any pain clinic and I walk 2-3 miles a day, with no pain. I have a new “lease on life.” I owe it all to the Lord, this fibromyalgia clinic. I pray the Lord will guide all with fibromyalgia to his door as well, because if it worked for me, it can for you or anyone you know with fibromyalgia.
Thank you, Drs. from the bottom of my heart for giving me total quality of life back when I had none.
May God bless you with only you hearts desires, happiness and good health!
Lovingly and Most Thankfully,
I have been suffering the effects of fibromyalgia for years with little or no relief. Many various treatment approaches had been tried in the past without any real or lasting success. I was skeptical because of past experiences, but felt I had to try one more thing. During the first treatment I noticed that my muscles were relaxing and following the treatment I was able to move much more freely. That night I had the best sleep I had had in years. I have been able to alter my medication dramatically and continue to make significant improvement. I felt so good after the third visit, that I attempted jogging which I hadn’t done in years. My mother and close friends were as surprised as I was about my new vigor and zest for life.
In just 3 treatments for my fibromyalgia, I have seen dramatic changes in how I feel. The pain in my back and feet has decreased by about 45%. I have finally found a doctor who has proven to me that “it’s not in my head” and his sincere and professional attitude is in a class by itself. The doctors and staff are determined to find an answer and have worked with me to find the perfect program for my type of pain.
When I came to your office the first time I was feeling worse than I have ever felt with fibromyalgia. Your treatments have given me such relief. I feel 100% better mentally and physically.
Overall I had a good impression of your office and staff. Jenny always called me back and was helpful with the insurance claims. You never kept me waiting and were always kind and attentive to my feedback.
I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope everyone with fibromyalgia finds your door.
I was diagnosed with arthritis and osteopenia in 1994. In 1997, 1 was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. Due to the severe pain in my elbow, I could not open lids from containers, and it gradually got worse. I have experienced pain all over my body. It was so severe that I could not move my neck to see the traffic when making a right turn. Besides the pain, I also experienced the trauma of my personal life. I could not sleep at night with out medication. For the last eighteen months I've only slept two or three hours a night. I was like a walking zombie not knowing what was happening and being forgetful. I did not know how to get help. Fortunately, a friend told me about this clinic and I am glad I went. After just a few treatments, I began feeling relief from the pain and stiffness. I highly recommend the treatment for anyone with fibromyalgia. I am no different than anyone else. It is natural to be skeptical without knowing the result.
I have had Fibromyalgia for approximately thirty-four years. After reading about the disease, I had come to the conclusion that there was no cure and that I would have to learn to live with the constant pain and uncomfortable symptoms.
In September 2001, I heard about this clinic and decided to give the treatment a try. No one ever promised me anything, but they did tell me that they thought I would need six to twelve treatments. After three treatments they released me from care and told me to come back as I felt I needed them! I am having a maintenance treatment today, and my last treatment was about one year ago!
I will be forever indebted to their care and the Entire Medical Team for the pain-free life I now live. I take no medicine, no special foods, and no special exercise plan. I want to tell everyone I meet about the wonderful life I now live.
