Fibromyalgia/ Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, but it Doesn't Have Me!
This is my son Alexander. He was six years old when he was diagnosed with Pediatric Fibromyalgia, July 2013, by R. Paul St. Amand, MD, in Marina del Rey, CA.
Alexander received this scooter as a gift the year prior, but had not been able to ride it due to his pain and chronic fatigue.
But look at him now! One month after beginning treatment with the guaifenesin protocol, www.fibromyalgiatreatment.com, he was able to ride his scooter. (This video was made three months into treatment.)
If you suspect your child has pediatric fibromyalgia, please consider the guaifenesin protocol as a treatment option. Reversal of fibromyalgia symptoms is possible and children reverse quickly.
