If you have fibromyalgia and you are worrying about coronavirus (COVID-19). Then there are a few things you should know about fibromyalgia and coronavirus.
Coronavirus is a family of viruses, which is characterized by symptoms including runny nose, sore throat, fever, and dry cough. Its illness can be more severe to older people and people with a weak immune system. This disease also affects people with other medical conditions like asthma, heart disease, or diabetes.
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by musculoskeletal pain with symptoms like pain, fatigue, insomnia, memory and mood issues. This disease is mostly in women. Because of this disease, people are unable to perform their daily routine tasks, and some people are often not able to work at all.
On a basic assumption, people with fibromyalgia may get coronavirus, and it may be deadly. Assuming that fibromyalgia is just a chronic fatigue syndrome and coronavirus is a family of viruses which makes people ill. People with fibromyalgia can still fight coronavirus, because despite having musculoskeletal pain, their immune system may have enough capacity to fight with the viruses. However, the doctors have not proved this theory to be correct medically.
The doctors and scientists are trying to make a cure for coronavirus, so is it for fibromyalgia. The people with fibromyalgia don’t have a cure for their condition which can fully free them from the pain. However, they do have a support system in which they keep their diet check and other exercises. Which gives them a little relief from the pain.
For coronavirus, you can also have a support system, which will allow you to fight the coronavirus.
Fighting with COVID-19
Once the virus spreads in your area, you should do the following things:
- If you are out in heavy traffic or crowded place, you should keep your nose and mouth covered with the help of a mask.
- You should regularly take zinc, vitamin A, not more than 8000 units a day, and vitamin C, D, and E, and Elderberry. (they are all in one product ViraPro™). This will boost your immune system. And there is another supplement ProBoost™ which helps boost the immune system.
- As the virus is spreading fast, you should immediately avoid crowded places. Because anyone could have the virus, and it may spread when it is airborne because the infected person coughs without a mask.
- Keep your throat wet, keep drinking water every 10 to15 minutes.
Pandemic Coronavirus and Fibromyalgia a Chronic Fatigue
It is a common pandemic virus which is spread almost all over the world. If you are living in an area where it already has hit, you should take precautionary measures to keep yourself safe. As for the people with fibromyalgia, the coronavirus can get to you if you don’t take care of yourself. The virus may affect anyone, but for the people who already have other medical conditions, it is fatal.
But as far as the assumption goes, it is possible that people with fibromyalgia have no effect on their immune system because of their condition. Their immune system is as strong as a normal human. However, we are still waiting for the researchers and doctors to prove the theories about fibromyalgia and coronavirus either true or wrong.
From the community of Chronicoid, we suggest you take precautionary measures and be safe from the outbreak of the pandemic COVID-19. And, take the supplements mentioned above to keep your immune system strong to fight the virus.
