Struggling with pain and fatigue, no matter what you try?

Do you feel like you are not the partner or parent you want to be because of your symptoms? Are you missing out on the fun things in life because you are exhausted, foggy, and in pain? You’re not alone.

Many doctors do not know how to accurately diagnose or treat fibromyalgia. Some doctors think fibromyalgia is all in our heads, or that we are lazy or exaggerating our symptoms. I’m here to share with you that there are many options to treating fibromyalgia other than prescription drugs that often don’t work in the long term and can have terrible side effects.


3 Day Challenge To Manage Fibromyalgia Pain

The Fibromyalgia Recovery Program

Through living with fibromyalgia myself and specializing in fibromyalgia treatment in my medical practice since 2009, I’ve learned that there’s another way to effectively treat fibromyalgia symptoms.

I want to share this knowledge with you to help you understand your condition, take steps to find what works best for you, and gain confidence that you can feel well again.

By the end of this course, you will know the most accurate ways fibromyalgia should be diagnosed, and you’ll learn results of scientific studies showing fibromyalgia is an illness with unique physical and biochemical findings. You’ll then learn techniques that can dramatically decrease your symptoms and return you to good health. Finally, I’ll help you get connected to fibromyalgia communities online where you can continue to learn and share your experience in a supportive environment.

Course Outline

Module 1

What is Fibromyalgia?

This first module will introduce the characteristics of this common pain condition, typical lab test results, typical non-pain symptoms in fibromyalgia, and the significance of growing pains

Notes include: 

  • Results of research studies of brain scans of fibromyalgia patients
  • A review of fibromyalgia in the Journal of the American Medical Association
  • Additional research studies on the genetics of the syndrome (fibromyalgia is not your fault!)
Module 2

What causes Fibromyalgia?

We’ll deepen our understanding of fibromyalgia by exploring its root causes (the answers may lie in our genes). We’ll also address the role of adverse childhood events on fibromyalgia symptoms.

Module 3

How is Fibromyalgia diagnosed?

This section will orient you to the most common methods of diagnosing fibromyalgia, and why some of them (i.e. the tender point exam) should not be used. We’ll review the American College of Rheumatology Diagnostic Test, the currently available blood test for fibromyalgia (and one in development), and finally Dr. St. Amand’s mapping evaluation for fibromyalgia diagnosis: it’s 100% accurate, and can diagnose fibromyalgia earlier than other methods or in those people who have more fatigue than pain.

Notes include: 

  • PDF Handout of the Diagnostic Questionnaire you can bring to your doctor for a fibromyalgia diagnosis
  • Links to information about the diagnostic blood test in development
  • Details of Dr. St. Amand’s mapping exam

Hear From Dr. Congdon's Happy Patients

“Dr. Melissa Congdon is an exceptional physician, she’s sharp and compassionate, and tops it off with a great deal of common sense. With her help, I improved greatly while on the guaifenesin protocol, arresting a slide of years of declining function, and was able to actually improve, exercise more, and take trips with my family that would have felt too overwhelming before.”

Kirsten E.

“I thought my happy active life was going to be spoiled, almost giving up hope of a recovery. No doctor could help me get over having my terrible leg pain. Then my GYN suggested I go to LA and visit Dr. St Amand, and see what I thought about his plan. I tried it thank heavens!!!! It is an effort, and I’m not 100 % yet, but I’m back to golf, hiking groups, and functioning at a level I’m proud of.”

Barb C.

“I was 38 when I realized that something desperately was wrong with me. I just kept on working to be healthier. But fibromyalgia is such a progressive, but cyclic condition! I was 52 when I just felt like I wanted to give up. I went to see a doctor that ultimately recommended guaifenesin and I saw results quickly (even though that is not always the case). I was SO excited and knew I would never go back.”
