The Drs: How To Rock Distressed Jeans
The Doctors know that the wrong pair of jeans can make you look twice your size, which is why they brought in fashion expert Kelly Cutrone to explain how to look your best in your denim. Kelly said there are so many denim don’ts that she wanted to make sure everyone knew the denim do’s.
Kelly brought out two models who were the exact same size and height. One was rocking a distressed pair of jeans, which drew the eyes right to her thighs. Kelly then shared the right way to rock the distressed look, with cuts right below the knees, which created a slimmer silhouette. If you have thin thighs that you want to make look bigger, rock the distressed, torn denim look!
The Drs: One-Piece & Monochromatic Denim Looks
Next, Kelly explained the right and wrong ways to wear one-piece looks. She said if you’re over 20, the overall look is not for you. But a one-piece denim pantsuit is a great way to rock denim while looking chic. It’s a looser, billowy type pantsuit that is easy to wear.
Lastly, Kelly explained that you can totally rock a monochromatic outfit, because the pieces can work together or individually. Of course, always rock some accessories! If you want to wear an all-white outfit, add a colored jacket to complete the look.

The Drs: What Is Fibromyalgia?
The Doctors then shared that fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread pain without a known cause. It can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to live with. Maggie has had fibromyalgia for more than 10 years. She has headaches and chronic pain all over, but x-rays showed nothing wrong. She was diagnosed after seeing a neurologist and rheumatologist. Because of her constant pain, she can’t do a lot of what she used to do.
The Doctors welcomed Dr Freda Lewis-Hall back to their show. Dr Travis Stork explained that it’s thought to be a disorder of the central nervous system that causes amplified pain due to abnormal pain processing in the brain. Dr Lewis-Hall said there are an estimated 5 million adults in the U.S. with fibromyalgia, and women suffer six times more often than men. It’s often first diagnosed around another condition in which there is pain.
The Drs: Diagnosing Fibromyalgia
Dr Lewis-Hall said it’s a combination of pain, tenderness to the touch, and other symptoms. The symptoms are unpredictable and come and go. Fibromyalgia can occur with other chronic pain conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and Lupus. One tool doctors use to diagnose is a tender point examination where they press on various points of the body. If 11 out of 18 areas cause tenderness or pain, a fibromyalgia diagnosis might then be made.
The Drs: Symptoms Of Fibromyalgia
Doctors also use a widespread pain index to diagnose the condition. Fibromyalgia is often characterized by pain on both sides of the body, both above and below the waist. Symptoms include fatigue, waking unrefreshed, impaired memory and concentration, dry mouth, mood swings, stiffness, irritable bowel or bladder, cramps, and headaches and migraines.
If you’re diagnosed, it’s important to make sure you work with your doctor to put together a plan designed for you. Medications, exercise, and therapy can all help with fibromyalgia.
