Hi, my name is Dagmar, I am 41 years of age and have been suffering from fibromyalgia pain for 5 years
My pains first started in July of 2005, whilst working in Housekeeping at a Gold Coast resort. It started as RSI (repetitive strain injury) from making beds, cleaning showers/bathrooms and dusting all day long. I informed my supervisor of this pain I was feeling and they sent me straight to the doctor.
The doctor advised me there was not much he could do, and he commenced with giving me steroid injections every three months so I could go on without too much pain. It was great being able to get the injections as I was able to keep working.
I continued with the steroid injections and occasional painkillers for the pain until it got unbearable. I was 2 years into the injections and at my new place of employment (still cleaning) when I had to give it all up. After heavy days of cleaning, my upper arm would swell up so much and I’d be left feeling like my arm had been severely beaten up. An inflammation had developed and the doctor suggested that with continual use of the injections, I would suffer the consequences down the track so he recommended I seek alternative work.
Other than having worked as a receptionist, cleaning was the only thing I was really good at and that gave me satisfaction and I couldn’t do it anymore.
Since having left cleaning I have undertaken other types of work which haven’t required as much use of my hands to give them the opportunity to relax and settle down. But still I would get fibromyalgia pain from just working the computer for more than 10 minutes.
After that I worked at a commercial laundry for 9 months during which time the pain resurfaced. I took painkillers and went on with my duties. I knew though that things would get bad again.
For most of this year I had been suffering from tendonitis. Vacuuming for only 20 minutes brough great pain to my arm and shoulders and it would last for days. I tried small hand weights in an effort to strengthen my arm muscles and that too brought on pain for many days. I couldn’t win. I had even been referred to a physiotherapist and they couldn’t do anything much. I was given stretching exercises but that only made things worse.
In the meantime my doctor diagnosed me with borderline lupus, eventhough I felt I did not have the symptoms of lupus. In went for a second opinion and proved my instincts right, I did NOT have lupus, not by a long shot! No-one could really put an name to my pains and symptoms, which resembled Fibromyalgya most accurately.
It was around this time that I was introduced to COLOSTRUM MAX by my mother. She read about the sometimes incredible effects it has on various auto-immune disorders and pains. I took three (capsules) straight away and within 20 minutes, the pain was gone completely! (I kid you not!)
I had strong shoulder pains that morning before taking the COLOSTRUM MAX and it was gone. Mum couldn’t believe it and neither could I but it was true! Now I am vacuuming for long periods and doing 5-hour long cleans without a single fibromyalgia pain in my wrist and arms. It’s incredible!
I am taking 2 capsules a day for maintenance and when I go out cleaning I take 3 capsules before I leave. That is enough to keep me absolutely pain free, the whole day.
The Colostrum also helped restore and rebuilt the muscle tissue of my arms, shoulders and wrists. It also cleared the inflammation, which caused these terrible pains. Who could have dreamed that something like this existed?
I love it and swear by it! I hope it helps you the way it has helped me.
