“The medications you are taking now might relieve some of your symptoms, but will they make you well? Some people with fibromyalgia have a chronic PROGRESSIVE illness, so despite the medication treating the symptoms, your illness may gradually worsen. Learn how to stop simply masking your symptoms and instead, learn how to REVERSE them.”
— Dr. Congdon
“I am doing fantastic! It is truly amazing. I have a life again....I feel so good most of the time that I forget I have FMS. I am so grateful.”
— Libby H. (one of Dr Congdon’s patients on the guaifenesin protocol)
Are you fully informed about your illness, your prognosis, and your treatment options? Most primary care doctors cannot confidently diagnosis fibromyalgia, are unaware of the basic health needs of fibromyalgia patients, and are not familiar with the benefits of some treatment plans.
In our first office visit, I can determine if you have fibromyalgia. I can provide you with comprehensive education on the latest research on fibromyalgia and present a variety of treatment options tailored to your specific needs.
