Vikram Bhatt is fighting the disease for 18 years

During a conversation with Bombay Times, Vikram Bhatt said, “I am troubled for the last 18 years. In Samantha’s case, myositis causes muscle weakness, and in my case, fibromyalgia causes severe muscle pain. You process pain differently. The pain which cannot happen for a normal person is very painful for me. There is no cure for any of these diseases, because it is your body attacking you. There are days when you flare up, and there are days when you are better. Only spiritual things like meditation or good sleep can help.

Illness took away a lot

Vikram Bhatt further says that I am lucky that I have a good support system, but it is difficult. It has been a difficult journey that has taken away a lot from me but has also made me stronger. I want to reach out to Samantha and tell her that if I can make it, so can you. I’m so glad she spoke up. Hiding it takes as much strength as fighting the pain.”

Diagnosing the disease was not easy

Vikram says that diagnosing and treating his illness was not easy. He explained, “For the first four years when I was diagnosed, I myself didn’t know what was going on. You get migraines, body aches, depression. You think they’re all separate illnesses and you separate them. Let’s try different cures. A physiotherapist friend of mine, Dr. Rashi Agarwal, helped me diagnose this condition as fibromyalgia. She was the one who diagnosed it because I used to go for physiotherapy and I It just wasn’t getting better. Some doctors also told me that it’s all in your mind and not Fibromyalgia.

Only one who has experienced pain knows how severe it can be

Vikram says that there is a part of the medical community which says that it is just a state of mind. Only the one who has suffered the pain knows how serious it can be. I also went to a doctor in Los Angeles for treatment, which helped me a lot but ultimately it’s your lifestyle. You can only take so many painkillers. I make sure I go to bed early and get at least 7-8 hours of sleep, cutting down on things that cause stress. I neither drink nor smoke.

Two poems helped in dealing with health situation

Beyond spirituality and a better lifestyle, it was some good writing that helped Vikram grow. He said, “There were two poems that helped me a lot in dealing with this health situation. One was Harivansh Rai Bachchan’s Agneepath and the other was Invictus, the poem that kept Nelson Mandela alive in jail. Not only survived but gave them hope and determination. I know these poems by heart.
