If you are suffering from Fibromyalgia and are located in the Carmel Valley area of San Diego, we have some suggestions for you!

Fibromyalgia is a complicated condition that can involve all body systems. There are many so called medication cures available, such as Lyrica, Welbutrin and Guaifenesin.

The problem is no medication is without side effects despite what the websites tell you. Today we are going to look at one of the most common medical treatments available Guaifenesin.

What is Guaifenesin?

According to drugs.com Guaifenesin is an expectorant. It helps loosen congestion in your chest and throat, making it easier to cough out through your mouth. Guaifenesin is used to reduce chest congestion caused by the common cold, infections, or allergies.

"Use guaifenesin exactly as directed on the label, or as prescribed by your doctor. Do not use it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended."

Do not give guaifenesin to a child younger than 4 years old. Always ask a doctor before giving a cough or cold medicine to a child. Death can occur from the misuse of cough and cold medicines in very young children. Drink extra fluids to help loosen the congestion and lubricate your throat while you are taking this medication. This medication may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert.

The City of Hope's Fibromyalgia Treatment Center website says "We now use guaifenesin for fibromyalgia because it has no side effects and is even safe for children."

What our Carmel Valley, San Diego Clients Say

"I have been a patient of Dr. Spinato's since 2002. I originally went to him for an upper back injury. He treated it with chiropractic manipulation, electrical stimulation and heat. It worked quite well. Over the years, whenever I had something out of whack, I would go to see him. He is conscientious and thorough and passionate about his field. As his expertise has grown so has my health. I've gone from injury treatment to preventive maintenance to wellness. As an example, I had two muscles that ran up the sides of my neck to my skull. They were like rocks. I had massage therapists working deep tissue massage for 90 mins, twice a month to loosen them up and they would tighten right back. When Dr. Spinato applied the NUCCA techniques they loosened up in two visits and have been normal ever since. His staff is friendly and caring and I can't imagine ever going anywhere else.

"I am so happy I found Dr. Spinato! He uses bio-cranial therapy and nucca adjustments, that is a gentle chiropractic method. I was referred to him by my TMJ dentist. I have osteoarthritis in my left TMJ and had been in so much pain for months, at the point that I couldn't eat or even talk, I was desperate. Thanks to the combination of splint therapy and Dr. Spinato's help, in just a few weeks my situation improved tremendously: it wasn't just my jaw, but my face and my neck and finally I could have a normal life again. Also, I used to have some sciatic pain every morning right after getting out of bed and after the first adjustment I never had that pain anymore, it has been already a year! Thank you Dr. Spinato!" - Isabella C.
