Fibromyalgia is a disease that has many symptoms and some of them can be confusing for people. So in case, you were thinking that it only affects the energy levels of the body and that the only problem is muscle and tissue pain, you were wrong.
This kind of disease can affect almost any aspect of a person’s life and it is time we educate ourselves on it and give more understanding to people who suffer from it.
And this will usually result in depression and increased muscle pain. But just because this is the most common symptom of this disease does not mean that it is the only one we should look at and consider.
There are numerous others that a person who suffers from fibromyalgia battles with every day. Most of the time there are all intertwined with one another and affect each other.
So with that line of thought if there is a way to help with one symptom it will result in helping with the others as well.
Having trouble with language and having trouble speaking can be very irritating and frustrating, especially when we live in a modern society where you are in a constant need to communicate your thought clearly and where you are constantly surrounded by other people who expect you to speak with ease and clarity.
Before your doctor diagnoses difficulty in speaking to fibromyalgia, it should be checked that there are no underlying issues with the throat, the ears, or the nose.
And for now, there is no evidence that fibromyalgia can cause brain tissue damage or degeneration. We may hope that in time some link between the two will be discovered and that a cure will be found, but before that, we must think of ways to make life easier for a person who suffers from fibromyalgia.
People who suffer from the disease claim that in most cases the more tired and exhausted they are the more difficult to speak it gets for them.
They find themselves searching for the right word and it simply doesn’t come to mind. Or the person finds themselves saying a word that has no correlation with the conversion or their train of thought.
This is something that can be very frustrating when it first starts happening and it is good to find a coping mechanism to help. It is important not to stress too much about it as stress leads to less sleep and more fatigue and exhaustion. Try to keep a positive outlook on the whole problem and not blame yourself when it happens. Give yourself a couple of seconds, laugh at it if you can and then move on.
Some days this will not happen and on some days it will but there are ways you can help yourself.
If you find that the more rested you are the rearer the happens then try to find ways to get better and more regular sleep.
Make a plan of going to bed each night at the same time and get up in the morning at the same time and see if this gives you more energy.
Or if you find that it is easier for you to write than to speak for a time then communicate with the people via text or email for a while. Whichever way you find of getting yourself relief is a good way.
Because speech difficulties can be very frustrating. They can be unpredictable and people who don’t know you can get confused and impatient.
So make sure that you explain to people that this is a symptom of a disease that you cannot control and that it does not define who you are as a person. And say this to yourself as well.
Considering how all the symptoms are linked together speech trouble and language difficulty can result in more stress, anxiety, and exhaustion if you don’t know how to help yourself. So find little ways every day to make yourself feel better if you can.
