Medical Condition

POTS, Fibromyalgia, RSD, and CRPS

Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, RSD and CRPS all share a common feature of an abnormally behaving autonomic nervous system.  In that regard all of these conditions can be classified as a form of Dysautonomia.  With dysautonomias the autonomic portion of the nervous system (that part that controls body functions such as skin temperature, sweating, pupil dilatation, heart rate, breathing and other independent functions) does not function just right.  Depending on how much the system is not working right a whole host of symptoms can arise.  Learn more about conditions related to dysautonomia on piedmontpmr.com.

Pain Doctor For When There Is No Unifying Diagnosis

In daily life when problem solving we are trained to look for commonality between a presenting situation and others like it.  In medicine we do that too.  We try to cluster all symptoms together and look for something, a thing, that went wrong to explain them.   While this is great when it works (there is only one thing that has to be fixed) sadly it frequently fails.  In many people with complex, chronic pain, or in those with other concurrent medical problems, the only way to actually get back on a healing path is to accept that there is no singular, unifying diagnosis but rather there are a multitude of problems and each of them has to be solved, one at a time, in order to get onto a healing path.  Learn more about alternative approaches to complex, chronic pain at piedmontpmr.com.

Pain Management in Hypermobility

People with loose ligaments (hypermobility) often have chronic pain.  Others think that being loose means you are not tight and therefor you should hurt less but it doesn’t quite work that way. When you are too loose joints are susceptible to damage, and tendon, muscles, and ligaments are more susceptible to strain. The looser you are the more at risk you are.  Many people just consider themselves flexible or double jointed  and think nothing of it.  But they too are at risk;  they just have a mild form of hypermobility.  Learn more about hypermobility and pain management techniques for it at piedmontpmr.com.
