Fibromyalgia and How We Can Help Relieve Your Pain
Fibromyalgia is a common, long-term, and chronic disorder that causes pain in soft tissue and joints. It can result in fatigue, loss of sleep, and mood swings. Fibromyalgia can sometimes be difficult to diagnose, there is no known specific cause, although it is believed that genetics may play a role.
Fibromyalgia symptoms tend to build over time, seem to occur spontaneously, and have no known single triggering event.
Symptoms are numerous, but include;
- body-wide pain
- stiff and aching joints in the morning
- sensitivity to hot and cold
- numbness and tingling in the hands and feet
- irregular sleep patterns
- difficulty with memory
Risk factors include;
- recent traumatic injury
- significant physical or psychological stress
- rheumatoid arthritis, lupus
- TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder)
- genetic predisposition
And while there is no known cure for Fibromyalgia, there are treatments that will help to reduce the discomfort. Treatments include;
- chiropractic care
- behavioral therapy
