6. Mycotoxins

As the name implies, mycotoxins are an extremely toxic compound that is produced by mold. Most conventional mold testing companies only test for mold spores and not mycotoxins. Doctors can test you for mycotoxins with a simple urine test.


7. Mercury Toxicity

Mercury is toxic to the body. If you haven’t had your amalgam fillings removed (the silver-looking kind of fillings in your teeth), you need to do so right away. That silver color indicates that these fillings have mercury in them, and you are releasing tiny pieces of mercury into your body every time you bite down. Your doctor can test you for heavy metal toxicity using a simple urine test.


8. Thyroid Issues

It’s important that you have your doctor check all six blood markers so that they can accurately measure the function of your thyroid gland. Your doctor needs to use the optimal levels for measuring, rather than using what is called the “standard reference” range when assessing any possible thyroid problems. When your thyroid level is within the optimal range, it typically resolves problems with sleep disturbances, depression, fatigue, and brain fog.


9. Leaky Gut and Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)

We actually have more bacteria in and outside of our bodies than we have cells! When these bacteria levels become unbalanced because of a sugar rich diet or the use of antibiotics, the body loses its ability to digest food properly and absorb nutrients, especially vitamin B12. Consuming gluten often leads to leaky gut and SIBO. These lead to gluten intolerances, so it’s a vicious cycle that must be broken. Fix your gut, and you can make some real headway in fixing your fibromyalgia.


10. Vitamin Deficiencies

Some of the most common vitamin deficiencies for those with fibromyalgia are magnesium, B12, and vitamin D. Some doctors state that a few of their patients have completely reversed their symptoms simply by getting their magnesium levels back to normal. You can measure your magnesium at any lab by getting a red blood cell magnesium level check.

After reading this list, it’s easy to see how many of these causes are interrelated. Often, there is no single root cause of fibromyalgia, which is why conventional doctors and research scientists are having such as difficult time finding a cure. Because the root problem can be quite complex, you might want to find a functional medicine physician to help you find the root cause.

You don’t need to suffer with fibromyalgia. Some simple tests and a good physician can help you tremendously, even when you think you have tried everything.
