Nerve Renew

by Nishish Sandy (2019-05-03)

This is a question I've gotten on my site a lot lately, and I am not sure I understand the intent behind it.Nerve Renew Is the question "I had fibromyalgia, and now it's gone, what happened?" or is the question, "I have fibromyalgia, and I want to know if I can make it go away like it never happened?"Well, regardless, let's talk about if fibromyalgia can 'disappear' in any way. I had fibromyalgia, and now I don't have it anymore. What I do still have is a tendency to express my stresses as muscle pain.What I mean is, I managed to get well enough that my symptoms of fibromyalgia have disappeared - I feel energized every day, I sleep easily and deeply, my thought processes are clear, and my muscles feel good. But, if I am really busy and do get stressed out over a period of days or weeks and I don't do my stretches and I find myself feeling anxious or frustrated or angry a lot - well then, I do get muscle pain. Mostly in my neck, sometimes in my stomach and hips.What this leads me to believe is that I have not perfectly 'cured' fibromyalgia - that I still have 'remnants' of what caused the pain in my body, and when I don't take care of myself those remnants express themselves.
