Notice of Termination of Acceptance of New Patients for Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS)and Other Specialized Outpatient Services:


People with residual symptoms after Coronavirus(COVID19) infections or after innoculation with the new corona vaccine may not only have difficulty understanding their condition as explained by their doctor, but may also continue to have symptoms that are difficult to manage medically.    
Moreover, their symptoms are similar to those of various diseases such as Fibromyalgia Syndrome(FMS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME)and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(CFS). People with these unexplained symptoms may be misunderstood by healthcare providers and may take a long time to be diagnosed and receive appropriate care and treatment. Furthermore, we have experienced many cases where this has further exacerbated and complicated the medical condition.

For this reason, we believe that it is desirable for both patients and doctors to remove preconceptions about the sequelae after COVID 19 infection or new corona vaccination, or disease names such as Fibromyalgia Syndrome(FMS), Myalgic Encephalomyelitis(ME) or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome(CFS), and to discuss how to respond gradually, starting with a review of basic lifestyle habits.
In our clinics, clinical assessment, routine blood tests, chest X-rays and ECG results are likely to be normal, making it very difficult to strictly differentiate between them and make a definitive diagnosis.

Fortunately, even if a definitive diagnosis is not reached, however, it is possible to identify and devise beneficial methods of care to utilise.

We desire to move forward step by step in our regular general practice, without losing hope, while avoiding the vicious circle caused by unnecessary impatience.
