Fibromyalgia

The Mayo Clinic states, “Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.”

 

Fibromyalgia is a lifelong struggle of trying to find a balance that helps you manage the pain. Some people with fibromyalgia live practically symptom-free with the right combination and only have a few flare-ups a year. The Mayo Clinic also talks about a few other alternative therapies to help manage fibro. Massage therapy is one of the most highly recommended treatments for fibromyalgia management.
