I have suffered from Fibromyalgia for a number of years, and was told by most physicians that the only thing that would help the pain is to take painkillers, and that it would get progressively worse in time, this was devastating!
The illness stopped me from being able to carry on with yoga, which I had practiced for over 12 years, as my joints were sore and weak, and the nerve pains would be quite intense, so it was debilitating, made me feel older than my years, tired, depressed and in some form of pain for the majority of the time.
In a state of anxiousness and desperation I trailed through the internet to find something that could help me. I found the Fibre Clinic and read about Dr Jenner and his treatments. Soon after I made an appointment to see him, this was last April. The testimonials on his website showed that he’d helped many who suffer from Fibromyalgia and I had nothing to lose.
He is easy to chat to, understanding, positive and approachable, and gave me hope. I was prescribed medication to be taken for 6 months. The treatment was to stop the pain the nerves were creating and without pain for a number of months the nerves would regenerate and learn not to flare up in the future.
I have to admit that this sounded a bit too good to be true, but 8 months later I am practically free of the nerve pain, which is amazing.
During my treatment I developed some problems in one of my shoulders and arm, where I was getting tingling and numbness making it difficult to write, type and text, as well as being quite uncomfortable.
Dr Jenner helped sort this out too, with trigger point injections and botox the sensation has practically disappeared! I do however still follow this treatment with a physio, every two weeks, who Dr Jenner recommended and is brilliant.
I feel a hundred times better than I did this time last year, I’ve even started a bit of yoga again! I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Jenner to help Fibromyalgia as well as any other pain conditions, he is excellent.View all testimonials
