Autism and Fibromyalgia: Can they be Linked as an “Auto-Immune” Disorder Originating In-Utero?

Recently, Autism has been labeled as an “auto-immune” type syndrome. According to a New York Times article, fully 1/3 or more of children with Autism are suspected to have developed the disease in-utero as an inflammatory syndrome of sorts, similar to fibromyalgia and many other syndromes.

With Autism awareness in its infancy, and diagnosis of cases from years ago not evident, can a correlation between Autism and many of today’s auto-immune syndromes, like fibromyalgia be made?

Could people with these syndromes have been born with Autism, especially when the newer diagnoses of this disease are applied?  Read on for more information on the different types of syndromes similar to Fibromyalgia.

If you have fibromyalgia, chances are good that you also have chronic fatigue syndrome and may have other autoimmune conditions as well. In fact, many in the scientific and medical communities believe that fibromyalgia symptoms and chronic fatigue are actually different manifestations of the same disease.  You see, fibromyalgia syndrome, chronic fatigue syndrome, myofascial pain syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivity syndrome, and many other conditions, form a cluster of overlapping syndromes that accompany fibromyalgia.

Muhammad Yunus, M.D. of the University of Illinois, College of Medicine, and Nobel Peace Prize winner… has coined a name for this grouping of medical conditions… “Dysregulation Spectrum Syndrome” (DSS). Dr. Yunus uses the term “dysregulation” to mean “bio-physiological abnormalities, possibly in the body’s neurological, hormonal and chemical systems…”leading to negative immune system responses. He claims that most patients have more than one of these syndromes. Here’s a partial list of dysregulation syndrome illnesses and conditions:

• Fibromyalgia Syndrome – FMS
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – CFS
• Migraines and Tension Headaches
• Multiple Chemical Sensitivity Syndrome – MCS
• Myofascial Pain Syndrome – MPS
• Temporomandibular Joint disorder – TMJD
• Irritable Bowel Syndrome – IBS
• Periodic Limb Movements of Sleep – PLMS
• Restless Leg Syndrome – RLS
• Primary Dysmenahorrea
• Irritable Bladder Syndrome

Are You Suffering With A Dysregulation Syndrome Like Fibromyalgia Symptoms?

Dysregulation syndromes like fibromyalgia symptoms, seem to come in clusters or “packs.” Life is more than just impaired for those that suffer from these illnesses… it can be miserable … but it doesn’t have to be. Besides the medications that are currently in use for treatment of these various conditions (many with undesirable side-effects), there is a natural way to treat these illnesses. If you would like to know how to rid yourself of this type of debilitating pain and misery naturally … the answer is simple.

As a fibromyalgia survivor, I discovered a natural treatment and have been symptom-and medication-free since I started using it. I improved my general health through cellular nutrition. Medical specialists including the American Medical Association, agree that by feeding our bodies at the cellular level… our bodies become able to replace damaged tissues with healthy ones. This rebuilding process can greatly reduce or even eliminate and symptoms of virtually any dysregulation syndrome (like fibromyalgia symptoms), or another autoimmune disease.
