Stress and Muscle Tightness. The root cause of Fibromyalgia, Osteochondrosis and Hernias


When muscles get too tight the blood flow through them gets diminished as a result blood vessel and even organs around the muscle  are struggling, It could lead to serious health problems. Most common diagnosis as a result of this phenomenon are herniated disks, fibromyalgia and osteochondrosis

But, 99% of the doctors don’t know the reason behind fibromyalgia because of the wast range of symptoms its associated with and if you read the list of symptoms you’d get shocked, here is an example from one of the many medical websites:

Let’s see how they define fibromyalgia:

Fibromyalgia is a chronic (long-lasting) disorder that causes pain and tenderness throughout the body, as well as fatigue and trouble sleeping. Scientists do not fully understand what causes it, but people with the disorder have a heightened sensitivity to pain.”

Another one : “Fibromyalgia is a long-term (chronic) health condition that causes pain and tenderness throughout your body. It causes musculoskeletal pain and fatigue.”

Doctors or scientist don’t know what it is. All they know is that there are many people who come to doctor’s office with same symptoms. Fibromyalgia gets ‘diagnosed’ or noticed when muscles develop trigger point. But what causes muscles to get damaged? The answer is- stress. Our body reacts to stress by tightening the muscles, read more about it here. [1],[2],[3],[4].

Muscle Fibrosis

This is a process in which muscle has its tissue damaged. It becomes tighter and tighter over the years, because of overwhelming stress, childhood traumas, catastrophic events etc, it’s a defense mechanism. Muscles are much stronger then the spine can withstand, they pull so much weight that it affects the spine, vertebrae get squish together, causing tension  in nerve roots and as result blood flow through them get diminished and all problems with disks start from there: herniated, bulging, degenerated, thinning disks, causing symptoms associated with damaged spinal cord like:
1) Neck and chest pain
2) Tension in the muscles of the neck and between the shoulder blades due to pain
3) Headaches: Tension in the neck muscles can lead to headaches.
4) Numbness and tingling in the hands
5) Weakness in the muscles of the arms, up to paralysis

So when doctors try to treat herniated disks with surgery or chiropractor cracks your whole body and you feel some relief – it will NEVER help. The problem is in very, very, very tight and damaged muscles that pulled your whole body In the different directions and messed up all mechanisms.

Why majority of the doctors won’t tell you the truth?

There has been a history of disconnection between physiology and psychology. Psychological part of our life is rarely associated with physiological, especially by trained doctors. It would be unheard of to meet a surgeon, neurologist, or rheumatologist who would tell you that your emotional state and your psychological well-being is associated with your health. Because the universities they attend don’t teach that and most people stop learning after college and also most people are ignorant and plain stupid.

So don’t be surprised that there are 80% chance of your doctor being absolutely incompetent when it comes to your general health. We already know that big pharma and doctors are a part of money making machine where you need to be unhealthy in order to bring money the money. They are not interested in you being healthy, only thing they care about is making money. That’s why every doctor will tell you that your problems linked to the specialty of this particular doctor. Surgeon will tell you you need surgery, rheumatologist will tell you you need shot of synovial fluid prosthesis in your knee, gastroenterologist will tell you to take stomach pills, kill Helicobacter pylori with antibiotic, a dietitian will tell you that you need to go on diet plan and so on.


When it comes to syndromes like Fibromyalgia, where nobody knows the cause of it, there is no money unless they strategically lie to you, in order to take money from your pocket. Even if you try to google it, they say “the cause is unknown”. It’s “unknown” because rarely there is a specialist who reads literature, who is interested in finding out the truth. But the truth is that your unresolved childhood traumas, emotional state and view on the world is 100% affecting your physical health, no doubt about it.

Let’s say a person didn’t have any major accidents where the outcome was severe injury, but over the years for some reason they developed symptoms like: Brain fog, low energy, sleepiness, mood swings, unstable stool, irritability, depression, painful trigger points in your body, anxiety, trouble sleeping – those are vague symptoms that tell you that there is something wrong with your body, it doesn’t function all that well and the approach to getting out of it can not be one-legged. No pill or no procedure will help. You’d have to truly want to get out of that state by learning about yourself more, analyzing your past, your behaviors and most importantly how you ended up in this state of health? Is it accidental? is it sudden? or it is the result of how you were living? If you go to check your blood and major organs and everything turns out fine but you still feel like that, well then it’s complex issue of your tendencies, of the way you approach life, of your past traumas and how you deal with them and so on.

Think about a person who was severely traumatized as a child, grew up angry, bitter, hopeless, without a positive outlook on the world etc. Do you think that his physical body will be healthy, despite the fact that his psychological health is absolutely poisoned? No, it just doesn’t work that way.  When you get traumatized as a child, your body reacts first, it remembers everything, it stores trauma inside for the rest of your life (if you don’t work on it), and for many years you won’t notice those signals, but the body will be become more and more fragile and weak and some physical symptoms will show up: it might be problem with thyroid, gastrointestinal tract, skin issues etc.

What to do?

Stretch and massage. The tighter your muscles the more you’ve got to stretch it. Very direct and hard massage will also help, better before stretching. You have to find spots where muscle is damaged and really start to massage it, you can use special equipment to make the movement stronger and more accurate. Stretched and massaged muscle is a healthy muscle. More about that in the following articles.
