Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition that affects the entire body. It has been reported that approximately three to six million people suffer from fibromyalgia in the United States. Fibromyalgia causes people to experience body pain, chronic fatigue, disrupted sleep patterns, irritable bowel syndrome, TMJ pain, and other psychological conditions. Symptoms of fibromyalgia may affect a person slowly, starting in their mid-adult years and worsening as they get older. Many times, patients have reported extended periods of chronic pain that accompany many other symptoms of fibromyalgia.
Fortunately, our pain relieving treatments are some of the best ways of treating fibromyalgia since it helps with loosening tight muscle in the body and helping the nerves communicate freely with the body.

This chronic condition is believed to be a type of interference with the way your brain processes pain signals. It leaves you highly sensitive to pain. If you have this condition, you may feel long-lasting pain throughout your body.
What Are The Dominating Symptoms of Fibromyalgia?
In most people it affects the entire body, although it may start in one area – such as the neck and shoulders – and spread to other areas over a period of time. The name, Fibromyalgia, means: pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (the tissues and tendons), and is a form of generalized muscular pain and fatigue.
You may be experiencing moderate or severe fatigue with a lack of energy, decreased exercise endurance, or the kind of exhaustion that results from the flu or lack of sleep. Sometimes the fatigue is more of a problem than the pain. Headaches, especially tension and migraine headaches, are common in Fibromyalgia. Abdominal pain, bloating, alternating constipation, bladder spasms, and irritability may cause urinary urgency or frequency. Your skin and blood circulation can be sensitive to temperature changes, resulting in temporary changes in skin color.
No matter how long you have been dealing with Fibromyalgia, it’s too long. Some people suffer only minor symptoms, while others feel the debilitating effects of Fibromyalgia and are kept from participating in their life– making even simple daily activities almost impossible.
