I had Fibromyalgia with a lot of back pain, extreme fatigue, memory fog, and high sensitivities to environmental scents. I also experienced asthma like symptoms. I tried numerous prescription sleep aids, depression medication, and muscle relaxers and pain medications. Each medication worked for a period of time and then no longer was affective. Between the pain medication and muscle relaxer, I had two hours of relief from pain and some energy. After 2 hours it was back to pain and fatigue. I experienced the pass of my language abilities and could only use 3-5 letter words. I had to use pads of memory helpers and still forgot to do things, where I placed things, etc. Just before coming to Dr. Winget, I was up to 100mg of Tramadol 4 times per day and still experiencing extremely high pain levels. I was forced to cut back to 3 times daily due to possibility of meds causing heart attack. I was still having to use muscle relaxers, 2-3 Skelaxin to supplement at least one time per day in order to function at a minimum level. I could only concentrate on 1 thing at a time. If I was interrupted while doing a task I would forget where I was at and would have to start over again, the list could go on and on. I never slept more than three hours. More than 10 degree change in temperature either up or down would keep me in bed all day due to pain and fatigue. Pain would travel to different places in the body; mostly upper back but sometimes lower back, hips, upper arms, pelvis.
After coming to Dr. Winget for treatment three times per week for a little over four weeks, the pain has subsided to a level 7. I have decreased my pain medication to 100mg 1 time per day and have not had to supplement it more than 1 or 2 times with muscle relaxers. The fatigue is not as bad as previously. I am beginning to fall asleep before midnight; previously it would be between 2-5am before falling asleep. I would have my husband wake me at 10am every day or else I would have slept until noon. If I woke before 8am, I would be a walking zombie and although my eyes would be open I could not be fully functional until 10am.
I cannot say enough about my treatment and have been praising God for healing me through Dr. Winget. Although I am not yet where I would like to be, I have come a long way in such a short time. I would never have believed such a thing was possible if I had not experienced if myself. I have suffered with the effects of Fibromyalgia for over six years and thought that it would be the way I would have to spend the rest of my life. I had to quit work almost 2 years ago. Thank you Dr. Winget, I look forward to the remaining treatments.
