Finding Strength and Hope: A Journey Through Fibromyalgia

Today, we will be diving into an inspiring conversation that sheds light on the challenges and triumphs of living with fibromyalgia. Whether you or someone you know is affected by this condition, this story offers hope and practical insights. 

Tami Stakelhaus whom Dr. Amigues spoke with in this latest episode is a coach and fibromyalgia patient. Tami's journey began six months after she got married, when she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The first two years post-diagnosis were incredibly challenging. She felt like she was just treading water, trying various medications and struggling through each day

Inspired by her own improvement, she decided to become a coach herself, focusing on fibromyalgia patients. She wanted to share the benefits she experienced with others. Recognizing that she couldn't help everyone alone, she founded the International Fibromyalgia Coaching Institute. This institute trains other coaches to support fibromyalgia patients, creating a ripple effect of positive change..

Understanding Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is often misunderstood. Emerging research suggests it might involve small fiber neuropathy, a type of nerve damage not easily detected by standard tests. While medications are available, lifestyle changes play a crucial role in managing fibromyalgia effectively.

The Impact of Coaching

The results of fibromyalgia coaching are promising. On average, coach Tami's students report a 50% improvement in their symptoms, including reduced pain and fatigue, and increased satisfaction with life. These results highlight the effectiveness of personalized coaching and the power of lifestyle adjustments.

A Message of Hope

For those living with fibromyalgia, coach Tami’s story offers a powerful message: there is hope. While managing fibromyalgia requires effort and determination, significant improvements are possible with the right support. Educate yourself, explore available resources, and consider working with a coach to guide you through your journey.


Fibromyalgia is a complex and often misunderstood condition, but there is hope and a way forward. The power of coaching, lifestyle changes, and community support can significantly improve the quality of life for those living with fibromyalgia.

By educating ourselves, seeking out resources, and embracing the support available through specialized coaching programs, we can find ways to manage the symptoms more effectively. This journey requires effort, but with determination and the right guidance, it's possible to lead a fulfilling and empowered life despite the challenges of fibromyalgia.

Remember, you are not alone in this journey. There is a community ready to support you and help you find a path to feeling better. Take the first step today towards a brighter future
