PTSD, Chronic Pain or Fatigue are related
PTSD, Chronic Pain or Fatigue seem to be associated with each other more often than not.
Have you developed Fibromyalgia?
A search for Causes of Fibromyalgia produced a list of 9 possible causes to explore and included the following:-
“Traumatic Events and Stress
The adrenal glands become fatigued when a person undergoes a traumatic event or suffers from stress. Often fibromyalgia symptoms first begin to appear following a traumatic experience in a person’s life and stress is well-known to exacerbate the symptoms.”
Looking back, I can verify that my own Fibromyalgic pain becomes severe in exactly the pattern described above. I also found out the hard way that having a feast of crisp chip/wedges and other fried foods whilst out the other evening made the pain flare up unbelieveably. So I googled and learned things like the following about Inflammatory Foods!
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome [CFS] related to PTSD
Whilst there are more possible causes for CFS, this article about Childhood Trauma having strong links to CFS is worth reading.
Manage Inflammation & Fatigue by Diet
Your vegetable garden contains the best diet!
By “wrong diet,” we’re talking about the typical Western diet which is full of inflammation-inducing foods. Think: fried foods, refined flours and sugars, hormone- and antibiotic-laden animal products, synthetic sweeteners, and artificial food additives.
So if you’re constantly noshing on these items, your body will begin to transition into a state of chronic inflammation. This inflammatory, high-energy diet builds belly fat, reduces levels of gut-healthy probiotics, induces weight gain, causes joint pain, bloating, and fatigue, and has been connected with a host of diseases, from diabetes and obesity to heart disease and cancer. And it gets worse: Once you get belly fat, just like an active volcano, it can start spewing out dangerous substances through a condition called “leaky gut.”
