FMS is better described as a number of potential symptoms, rather than a disease in itself. You could have several symptoms from the many that may be present, and it is the combination that leads to an FMS diagnosis.
Someone with FMS may well feel depressed, but this can be a response to the condition rather than the cause of it. I also frequently find that people are likely to be hyperventilating or
breathing badly, and it is essential to change this for improvements made through treatment to stick.
Although not usually a condition that is quick to respond to treatment, an appropriate combination of diet, acupuncture, herbs, supplements, breathing, relaxation and discussion can bring about lasting improvement.
