Fibromyalgia is a condition that causes sufferers  extreme pain all over the body, as well as sleep issues, fatigue and, in many cases, can lead to mental and emotional distress.

The Centers For Disease Control says the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown

Jacob Teitelbaum, MD,  who is a board certified internist and nationally known expert in the fields of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, sleep and pain, joins Gayle Guyardo the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom with why the disease is so difficult to diagnose and shares cures and treatments that may help ease the discomforts of fibromyalgia.

Dr. T, as his patients fondly call him, has authored numerous books including the best-selling From Fatigued to Fantastic! (now in its 4th edition). He is the lead author of numerous studies on effective treatment for fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome, and one study on effective treatment of autism using NAET. He also developed the popular free smartphone app “Cures A-Z.”

Bloom airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
